Book Description:

In a post-apocalyptic world run by the demons of hell, it is time for the next Middle Born generation to leave their city and take a perilous journey to reach Nirvana.

Promised safety from the darkness of this world, they are not prepared for what they are about to face both as a group and as individuals.

Their worlds survival rests on their shoulders but all is not as it seems and they will be put to the ultimate test.

Kim’s Review:

Another triumph! Claven is now firmly established as one of my favorite horror authors ever!

The Culling was simple, easy to read, easy to understand, and downright terrifying! I feel a little stupid that I didn’t see the twist in it’s entirety before it was revealed, but what a twist:  My jaw dropped! And it didn’t take long to set up the plot and then throw us into the scary woods with freaky demons and frightful days and nights! I was pretty dang petrified while reading! I can’t decide if I want to go to Nirvana cuz I’m weird like that, or if I should stay far far away because of my rather strong survival instincts. And my trust issues are probably from reading books like this … and I’m strangely ok with that. I definitely rank The Culling as one of Claven’s best and I definitely recommend it to all horror fans!

Book Description:

What did you say?

The once silent world of Heather Lawrence is turned upside down when her husband, Andrew, admits her to a state of the art facility for surgery that enables Heather to hear and speak, an ability she lost in her teens.

Strangeness abounds as she hears voices that aren’t there and speaks words that are not her own, and she tries to navigate through her noisy new life.

Desperate for answers, Andrew searches for the surgeon that gave Heather her new lease on life, but turns up with more questions than when he started. He soon finds himself in need of a priest as All Hallows’ Eve approaches, and all traces of his wife disappear in front of his eyes.

Kim’s Review:

Yass! A Sian B. Claven book that I can recommend without worrying about offending anyone! I really liked this book. It was simple and straightforward and with a twist that I didn’t see coming. There’s not much to say about it; it just needs to be read. My only real criticism is that I want more. My horror itch was scratched, but come on, more detail! I really liked it!
