During the month of October, I asked a few of my friends from what is their favorite Monster is (some are not so scary) and what book they read that they loved that associated with the Monster they picked. The answers are great and the recommendation are even better! Enjoy!
So, a monster and a book. First, if we’re talking about “true” monsters (not your typical Paranormal monsters, such as shifters, vampires, gargoyles, etc) then let me start by saying I’m not a proper Horror Aficionado. I watched A Nightmare on Elm Street at the drive-in theater when it came out in 1984 and it scared the shit outta me, so I steered well clear of the Horror genre for years, decades even, after. F*ck you, Freddy Krueger and the nightmare you rode in on. It’s only been in the last few years that I’ve slowly been dipping my toe into Horror. Books, not movies. And I’ve discovered, that far from hating it, I actually enjoy a decent spine-tingling, hair-raising, nipple-puckering, pee-your-pants kinda tale. While I have nothing against gore, it’s the scary stories I prefer. When Michelle started her October posts last year I wondered if I had a favorite monster. It turns out I don’t. I’m an equal opportunity monster lover, hence my fascination with monster porn. Though I do have a special place in my…heart for tentacles. *coughs* Anyway…
Harmony Black (Harmony Black #1)by Craig Schaefer
Published February 1st 2016 by 47North (first published January 5th 2016)
Harmony Black is much more than your average FBI special agent. In addition to being a practicing witch, she’s also an operative for Vigilant Lock, an off-the-books program created to battle occult threats—by any means necessary. Despite her dedication to fighting the monsters threatening society, Harmony has become deeply conflicted about her job. Her last investigation resulted in a pile of dead bodies, and she suspects the wrong people are being punished for it.
While on a much-needed vacation, Harmony gets pulled back into action. This time, though, she’s gone from solo work to being part of a team. Their target: the Bogeyman, a vicious and elusive figure…and the creature that destroyed Harmony’s childhood.
Surrounded by quirky, fascinating characters as dedicated to one another as they are to their new partner, Harmony must learn to trust her team—and a new romantic interest—on a dangerous and deadly mission that conjures up memories she’d much rather forget.
