Scavenger Hunt

 

“I already know all your names.

As for me… you can call me Mr. Do-Good.”

 

Five strangers have woken up in a white room. A room with no doors, no windows.

 

A room with no hope.

 

“5 stars!” Sci-Fi & Scary

Because these strangers have been kidnapped, drugged… and brought here as the newest contestants in the world’s most high-stakes scavenger hunt.

 

A GREAT story that kept me guessing until the end… it will not be a story that you will want to put down!” – The Genre Minx

 

Run by a madman named Mr. Do-Good, the game offers only two options: win or die.

 

“Unputdownable!” – Fundinmental book reviews

 

All they have to do to survive is…

 

complete every task…
on time…
and not break any of Do-Good’s rules.

 

“An entertaining, action-packed read.” – Morbidly Beautiful Reviews

 

Playing the game will bring the players to their breaking point and beyond. But play they will, because Do-Good has plans for these strangers, and their only chance to live through the night is to discover what’s really behind his Scavenger Hunt.

“If you want excitement, don’t miss this one.” – Monster Librarian

Darkling Smiles

A “chilling collection of eight tales… as scary as they are satisfying…” (Publisher’s Weekly)

 

A family that wins tablet computers at a deal to good to be believed…

A man who is sent across the universe, only to discover the most dangerous world in existence…

A hitman who realizes that his greatest contract is going to be himself…

A man whose child has been targeted by a cult, and must decide what he is willing to do to save those he loves…

Michaelbrent Collings brings you eight tales of people whose lives — and sometimes deaths — have fallen into decay.

Tales of the ordinary and the extraordinary, the outrageous and the banal. Tales of lives bright, lives dim.

Stories of a universe fallen, where every happiness has its opposite, and every smile will be inevitably darkled

Terminal

Michaelbrent Collings brings you one of the “Best Reads of 2019” (Horror After Dark); a “Top 10 Read of 2019” (Sci-fi & Scary)…

 ***

All passengers, please prepare for departure…

An employee, a cop, and six passengers; a prisoner, a stowaway, and a madman.

These are the people waiting at the Lawton bus terminal.

 Mostly late-night travelers who want nothing more than to get to their destinations, and employees who want nothing more than to get through the graveyard shift.

But when a strange, otherworldly fog rolls in, the night changes to nightmare. Because something hides in the fog. Something powerful. Something strange. Something… inhuman.

Soon, those in the terminal have been cut off from the rest of the world. No phones, no computers. Just ten strangers in the terminal… and The Other.

The Other is the force in the mist. The Other is the thing that has captured them. And The Other wants to play a game.

The rules are simple:

  1. The people in the terminal must choose a single person from among them. That person will live. The rest will die.
  2. Anyone who attempts to leave the terminal before the final vote will die.
  3. The final vote… must be unanimous. 

A nightmare. And getting worse, because the best way to make a vote unanimous… is to kill the other voters. 

Welcome to the Terminal.

The Darklights by Michaelbrent Collings

From #1 bestselling horror novelist

and multiple Bram Stoker Award finalist MICHAELBRENT COLLINGS

comes a trip into the farthest reaches of fear…

 

***

I am a FixIt.

 

When the Company has a problem – a factory gone under, books that need auditing, or a rebellious planet to be destroyed – I’m there, and I take care of it. I’m the most successful FixIt in Company history, and I have NEVER failed to punch a ticket.

 

TF-653 is different. The staff and crew of a terraforming installation on a planet so strange it cannot be described have disappeared. It’s my job to go there, to find the problem, and to stop it. Or kill it.

 

But some things can’t be killed. Because some things are already dead.

 

And some things… are even worse. Because some things can only be seen in THE DARKLIGHTS.

Until HE comes.
 
On the day the most handsome guy Eve has ever seen starts coming to her school, she somehow knows everything is going to change. And it does. He sweeps her off her feet. He makes her feel beautiful. He makes her feel loved. He makes her feel… SPECIAL.

Because he is a vampire. A vampire named…

Peter wants make Eve his own as well – to give her his heart, make her fall in love with him, then drink her blood as he has vowed to do to every girl born of the Wendy line. And Peter he is a near-invincible creature of super-human strength, inhuman cunning, and ageless desire. He has marked her as his, so his she will be, body and soul.
 
Eve’s only hope lays with James Hook, vampire killer and sworn protector of the Wendy line.
 
Like Peter, James has lived a long, long time in the shape of a young man. But where the Pan lives a life of dangerous pleasure and beautiful death, Hook survives in a world of scars and shade. His face and body have been slashed and crippled, and still he continues: he will protect Eve however he can, whatever the cost.
 
But Eve isn’t sure she WANTS to be protected. Because for the first time, Peter Pan may actually be falling in love. For the first time, Eve has found not one but two people who fight for a place in her heart.
 
For the first time, Eve is on the verge of truly becoming one of The Lost…
