Salvage by Duncan Ralston


Description from Publisher:

“Something is Lurking Under the Lake…
When Owen Saddler’s little sister mysteriously drowns, Owen is determined to uncover the circumstances by following in her footsteps, even if it means diving into the murky—some would say haunted—waters of Chapel Lake.
Thirty years earlier, the town of Peace Falls had been flooded to build a hydroelectric dam, and its ruins remain below the surface of Chapel Lake. The strange disappearance of the town Pastor, along with many of the parishioners, still haunts the citizens of Chapel Lake. But does the church haunt the lake itself? Is Owen really seeing ghosts… or has he descended into the depths of madness?
Salvage is the debut horror novel of author Duncan Ralston (Gristle & Bone). A darkly disturbing story of depression, religious fanaticism, and the afterlife, Salvage seeks to illuminate the evil within us all.  ”

My review:

This book was a fun mystery from beginning to end, it was really well done. I loved the character Owen and felt so bad for him during the whole story, every time I thought he was going to have some happiness something bad happens until the end. This book also had some of the best creepy characters I’ve read in a while especially Everett.

Mortality by Kellie Sheridan


Description from publisher:

“After surviving a deadly plague outbreak, sixteen-year-old Savannah thought she had lived through the very worst of human history. There was no way to know that the miracle vaccine would put everyone at risk for a fate worse than un-death.

Now, two very different kinds of infected walk the Earth, intent on nothing but feeding and destroying what little remains of civilization. When the inoculated are bitten, infection means watching on in silent horror as self-control disappears and the idea of feasting on loved ones becomes increasingly hard to ignore.

Starving and forced to live inside of the abandoned high school, all Savannah wants is the chance to fight back. When a strange boy arrives with a plan to set everything right, she gets her chance. Meeting Cole changes everything. Mere survival will never be enough.  ”

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading this book, there was a creepy vibe that is needed to make
 a good zombie book. The author was able to create really interesting characters in 
Savannah, Zarah and the boys. One of the best parts was chapter 27 about Zarah, it 
was a scary chapter to witness the change in character. I look forward to more from
 this author and Savannah.
