Giant trapdoor spiders have launched an assault against the human race and appear to be winning the war. Civilization crumbles, and all hope begins to fade. Nonetheless, even during these terrible times, Christmas still manages to arrive. John, trapped on a farm with his only surviving daughter, desperately tries to find a way to give his little girl some type of holiday joy. To his surprise, John soon discovers Christmas miracles might, in fact, be real as the perfect present arrives on their front doorstep. The only problem is, he may have to race against time to salvage this miracle before the spiders snag it in their deadly traps...

I almost didn't read this one. There is one thing in this world that scares me, and that is SPIDERS! If it was any longer, I might not have finished. I still have nightmares!

What I love about Roma Gray is that some stories are just fun to read, others incite fear, then there are stories like this one. I wasn't sure what to think when starting this book, but it actually made me think about the mysteries of life and what is out there that we cannot see.

Aliens have seized the Earth's star cruisers, claiming they have committed war crimes against other worlds. Four senior women, life-long friends who refer to their group as the "Four-ever Club", watch the television reports as the aliens announce a very bizarre punishment for the people of the Earth. Two of the women are baffled by the punishment, while the other two are terrified and seem to know more than they are saying. As the horrific truth about the Earth's military is revealed, lies and betrayals within the group of women also emerge.

I've read a lot of Roma's pieces and never really thought about her writing Science Fiction. However, this book proves that she can pretty much write anything.

Mike has a very unusual phobia: He’s terrified of Champ, the creature reported to be living in Lake Champlain. Ever since he was a child, he has been haunted by nightmares about the monster and has avoided the lake most of his life. It’s a ridiculous fear, for the creature couldn’t possibly exist, could it? Tonight, whether he wants to or not, Mike will finally discover the truth about the lake and its legendary inhabitant.

I'm not a fan of boats, stories on the water, and the haunted house genre has grown bland to me. So, when I picked up this book, I was not expecting much. However, Roma has blown me away with the story within. Holy Hell, this book totally changes the way a story with the words "haunted house" should be told. Well done and perfectly narrated by Terry Self!

Deep in the North American forests lurks an animal spirit known as the Grishla. The Grishla is so ancient it pre-dates the human race by several million years, and it is so powerful and reclusive only very insightful witches know of its existence. Five hundred years ago, the Dwanake tribe possessed such witches. Drunk on their own power and arrogance, these witches attempted to enslave the Grishla. Enraged, the creature began hunting and killing the Dwanake.

Roma has taken the dinosaur theme and made it her own. When I started this book, I thought I'd be reading/listening to something that was a typical run-of-the-mill dino story. Was I wrong! I don't want to give anything away, but this is simply a must read!

How does the greatest gunslinger of the old west end his career? By hunting a dinosaur animal spirit, of course. Karl Redgrave has a big plans for his retirement party. He's bringing together the world's greatest criminals, murderers, warriors, and assassins to hunt something worthy of them all: a highly intelligent, seven-foot tall dinosaur spirit; known to the natives as the Grishla. Of course, Karl wants only the best on his safari, so he has pitted these men against each other in a deadly contest in an old ghost town, with five winners securing a place in the hunt.

Roma Gray has created the horror equivalent to Jurassic Park. Why this is not a movie, I have no idea. Better yet, throw this on AMC alongside the Walking Dead and Into the Badlands!
