“The Dawn: A Response to Wings” by Tina McFarlane

I am terrified

With the dawn we saw Them
Dark forms against the light
Will this be my last sunrise?

We heard that They would come
And We are ready

We gathered what we could

As a writer, I have a dual nature, and love both the light and the dark. They each bring out a different side of me. Writing gives me the chance to explore both.

Here, in this special place, you will find my darkness.

“The End: An Apocalyptic Anthology” …we were horrified…


The End: An Apocalyptic Anthology

The End Has Finally Arrived…

The End Has Finally Arrived… We all knew it was coming…an Apocalypse to end all things. But how exactly will the world end? Will it be slow or fast? Will it be a zombie plague? A nuclear holocaust? Death from above? Or perhaps something less predictable, like a shocking discovery in an ancient tomb or an unnamed evil stalking us in the shadows? We asked several talented horror writers to deliver their best Dystopian fiction and Apocalyptic stories, and we were horrified by what they predicted. So open up these pages at your own peril, for the End is nigh, and you may discover it is more terrifying than you could have ever imagined!

BOOK REVIEW “Dead & Alive: Survive” by I. J. Smith


“Dead & Alive: Survive” by I. J. Smith is an apocalyptic thriller based in England.

Focused on military characters, the plot grows around a missile fallen over the country, causing the death of almost all population due to a spreading virus. The place is abandoned, although a doctor (whose work is essential to combat the illness and bring back their homeland) is trapped in the quarantine zone. So our protagonists are sent on a dangerous rescue mission.

Once they jump on the area, Hell begins. They find out they’ve been laid. They expect to find corpses and they land in the heart of an aggressive zombie crowd. The story leads the reader through all truths and betrays they face, as the decisions they need to take: will they accomplish and leave? or will they stay and help the few survivors fight their own demons?

Characters are evolving and controversial. Led by Jack, who the reader will fall in love with and whose features are the most developed in the book, the squad is composed of some lightly brushed soldiers who will whether be eaten or will lose their minds.

The book is structured in little chapters, which makes the read easier. Scenes are agile and energetic, what you need to find in an apocalypse terror story. The main body is based on dialog and inner thoughts, making all conspiracies and thoughts of betraying more obvious to us, letting us understand better what’s going on their minds.

I recommend this book, obviously, to all zombie readers, because they will find what they like and enjoy devouring. But also to military fans (I can see the research behind the scenes and Smith’s hard work) due to the amount of specific detail the author gifts us with.

Who loves this genre and grabs this book, will look for the second one. Congratulations to the author.

BOOK REVIEW “Haunted House Harbor” by Roma Gray


“Haunted House Harbor” by Roma Gray is a terror book (part of Project 26, book 8) about the “perfect Apocalypse”. But no definition could ever describe the amazing work Gray brings to us.

The plot is complex, many characters are introduced at the same time, suffering a worldwide terrorist attack (a very creative one, I must say) each one of them, in their way. They find (or are they forced to find…?) shelter in a place which hosts its own evil entities.

You’ll still have to deal with what already lives in this town, and I think you will discover that it is always hungry.” With a cackling laugh, she added: “Welcome to Haunted House Harbor, boys.”

I won’t say anything else because I absolutely won’t ruin your read.

One of the best parts of the book is how real characters are. Thank you for that. No superheroes. A teen with Asperger (autism) with her mother in a wheelchair, are the center of the story. Police are confused and scared, lazy construction workers, robbers…

To me, this book is not about zombies, so don’t hang that label on it. Zombies are the element to intensify the story and bring that heart racing feeling to the reader. You need to read it to understand.

And what about Gray’s writing? She’s clear, delightfully ironic, very pleasurable to read. No endless descriptions but very accurate and sensorial. She pays attention to the tiny details that make you hear in your mind every sound, every broken thought… you freeze and lose your breath together with the characters. This book is quick to read, not because it’s simple but because you can’t just leave it.

The first part is dedicated to introducing all the characters, and the second is an avalanche of panic, action and that face you do when you’re watching something that will give you nightmares.

I read lots of books (lots) and I love terror, and believe me, this is GOOD. I would want to be a more serious reviewer at this moment, but I can’t because I’m very excited about this book and discovering Roma. I already purchased her other books and I can tell I will keep you updated.

I honestly recommend it to all action readers, suspense, thriller and of course, horror lovers.
