The evil soul of a witch doctor lives on in the body of Simon, the great jungle beast who leads his human followers - the Panther People - in their orgies of lust and blood. Now the innocent Martin family, George, Peg, and their beautiful daughter, Jenny, on vacation, will stumble upon this gruesome cult, trapped in a desert nightmare of terror and death - waiting. In the quiet wasteland, the sound of their own pulses will be all they can hear.

Abuse is no laughing matter. It comes in all shapes and forms, and it can be present in more than just romantically inclined relationships. Abuse can be found in any relationship you might find yourself a part of; it could be a romantic relationship or even a relationship with your closest friend. If you have picked this book up, there might be some signs in one of your relationships that has you worried. Maybe you are reading for a friend, and maybe you want to arm yourself with the knowledge that can help you navigate the sticky world of relationships.

Penny hates the outdoors, but when her boyfriend, Jared, plans a romantic weekend getaway in the woods, she decides to tag along. The pair drive to a remote Kentucky campground with a strange and sordid history. Within the confines of the Swan Creek State Park are the ruins of a town abandoned under terrifying circumstances in the 19th century. The town of Newsom's Landing had been the site of the last-known witch trial in US history, and the ghost of its defendant, the infamous Ellie Pomeroy, is said to still linger.

How do you kill a god, a Greek god, one of the Ancients? The professor had never been asked that before. Jim Burges and his wife, Sally, eagerly awaited the answer. Jim claimed to have a murderous god stalking him, and he needed to know. The professor swallowed hard before proceeding. He knew they weren’t going to like his response.

A good premise.I wanted to like it.I found the writing oddly lacking and stilted. There was no personality behind the characters. Narration by Tom Campbell followed the writing.It was oddly paced and halting. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Charley Fieldner appears to have the perfect life: a well-paying job, a loving wife, two great kids, and a beautiful home. He also has a big secret. Charley is a hit man with a huge complication - he is his own next target. The background file contains the sort of details only someone very close to him could know. The suspect list is short but devastating: his wife, father, sister, and best friend. Charley always thought he could have it all, but the secrets, lies, and betrayals are piling up.

To save their show, Carthage and Huxley risk everything in a royal talent competition, vying for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to perform for the future celestial queen. Behind the glittery haze of flash paper and mirrors, every competitor has something to hide...and it's the lies Carthage and Huxley tell each other that may cost them everything.
