Morpheus Road: The Light by D.J. MacHale

by D.J. MacHale

This book is wonderfully creepy. In the very beginning of the book Marsh Seaver starts hearing and seeing small things that are just not right. The faucet drips, the lights go out and words appear in odd places. This subtle haunting is really scary. From there Marsh begins to be really haunted by his own comic creation, Gravedigger. When his best friend Cooper goes missing, he must team up with Cooper’s sister Sydney. Together they must find Cooper and try not to get killed by Gravedigger. I can’t wait for the next one.

Fiend

by Peter Stenson

Mix Shaun of the Dead with Breaking Bad and you have a good jumping off point for Fiend. It’s the zombie apocalypse and junkie Chase Daniels’ life couldn’t really get much worse so he is trying to turn everything around. Get his girl back and his life on track. A great read for zombie fans (the zombie’s are called ‘chucklers’ because of the horrifying laughter they randomly let loose.) Chase’s only saving grace is that him and some of his closest friend’s are addicted to meth and that is the only thing keeping them from becoming infected. A great twist on the zombie outbreak. This is a very dark, gritty story with a very precise perspective.
