Reviews for Dead Til Dawn:
5 Goblets! "This was a good ghost story. Gave me
the chills a bit and makes me not want to visit anywhere where a battle has
taken place. It does make you wonder if there are ghosts out there from battles
long ago who still live the battle every day. The author did a
great job with descriptions and the characters. I hope the author keeps up with
the ghost stories because she does a great job with them.” - Fallen

4 Stars! “Another
great ghost story by this author. It was very dramatic and a very interesting
read. I loved the interaction between the characters. The setting was very
atmospheric, I thought the descriptions were great and I could see the story
unfold clearly in my mind.” - A
World of Books 3.5 Stars! “The way this author writes once again
proved to be so smooth, with everything being well-described, as well as the
appropriate details being given in all the right moments. At first, I was a bit
skeptical of the concept of ghosts, but in this story everything was described
in a way that didn't leave me any negative thoughts by the time I finished the
story.” - Book-O-Craze
An Excerpt From Dead Til Dawn:
Steve leaned forward in the back seat and tapped Tim on the shoulder. “You think we can get to the Devil’s Den now? Won’t they have security guards?”
“Who’d guard a battlefield at night? Ghosts?” Tim chuckled.
“The ghost stories we heard today were cool,” Steve replied. “I wanted to take that ghost tour at the orphanage. They let you investigate and try to contact dead soldiers. Maybe tomorrow—”
“I told you, that was a rip off,” Tim interrupted. “I don’t know why you keep wasting your time and money on that paranormal crap. There’s no such thing as ghosts. People in town made up those stories to rake in tourist money and sell costumes to idiot reenactors. If playing dress-up… Whoa!”
Tim stopped the car. A wall of white mist covered the road ten feet ahead of them.
“Is that fog?” Jessica asked.
“Yeah,” Steve answered. “But why is it there and not anywhere else?”
