David Lansdown, esteemed British horror writer and supernatural sceptic, is used to basking in the glow of the press…
Until a hastily snapped photo hits the headlines and makes his affair with his publisher’s son public.
When David finds himself at Bone Hollow, a house with a glass wall overlooking a wild and desolate moor, his only concern is writing his next best seller to bury his misdeeds in the past.
But something stirs beneath the earth. Something bound to the land. Something determined to take everything from him.
Luca Fox-Waite is still in love with the man who cast him aside, but his own childhood demons lurk in his shadow. As he discovers more about Bone Hollow’s history, he finds himself ensnared in its story—a story steeped in time and tragedy.
Because curses lie in bones, and they do not die.

A tale of grief and horror, The Ruin of Delicate Things explores how loss can leave a hole inside of us. A hole large enough for anything to crawl into.
"Gorgeously written and compulsively readable, The Ruin of Delicate Things is as beautiful as it is tragic. Beverley Lee's work has always been memorable for its sumptuous descriptions and well-drawn characters, but this fiendishly macabre fairytale puts her right at the top of my must-read list. Whether or not you keep your doors and windows shut, this one will sink its teeth into you."

"Disturbing, evocative, and profoundly haunting, WE ARE WOLVES is a high-def snapshot of the future of the horror genre. It pulls no punches, asks for no quarter, and will leave you breathless. I loved it."
Best-selling author and World Horror Grandmaster Award winner Brian Keene
Once upon a time, there was a woman, and she was tired. Tired of pushing. Tired of being pushed. Tired of feeling alone. Tired of so much.
So she gathered together a pack of wolves, a band of mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, partners, friends, lovers, survivors, victors and brilliant, shining things, and she told them to sing.
And sing they did.
The result is WE ARE WOLVES, a chorus of of terrifying, moving and heart-breaking stories from some of horror’s finest contemporary writers including Gemma Amor, Laurel Hightower, Cina Pelayo, Sarah Read, Hailey Piper, V Castro, Sara Tantlinger, Sonora Taylor and many more.
All proceeds from the sale of this charity anthology will go towards helping the survivors of abuse and assault.
“It takes a wolf to sing for wolves, and these stories sing in the dark”
Kathe Koja, Bram Stoker and Locus Award winning author of The Cipher and Velocities
“We Are Wolves is a collection of stories about survival, violence, vengeance, blood, and how women relentlessly push forward in a world that tries to maul them while asking them to smile. These women will tear you apart and hold you in their hands after, because they are savage wolves, but also goddesses who understand pain, love, justice, and the importance of persistence.”
Gabino Iglesias, author of Coyote Songs
Something is waiting for its time to rise.
Beth and Stu Davenport moved to the sleepy English village of Meadowford Bridge to give their young son, Gabriel, an idyllic childhood. But one night a hidden, ancient darkness shatters their dream and changes their lives forever.
Years later, Gabriel searches for answers about his mysterious past. His life unravels as he discovers that the people he loves and trusts harbour sinister secrets of their own. As the line blurs between shadow and light; and he becomes the prize in a deadly nocturnal game, Gabriel must confront the unrelenting, malevolent force that destroyed his family all those years ago.
His choice: place his trust in a master vampire, or give himself to the malignant darkness.
Is there a lesser of two evils—and how do you choose?
Gabriel Davenport has been remade from darkness. Now, he must adapt to survive .
In a small seaside town, Gabriel's maker unwittingly takes his wards into the throes of a deadly new game. There are rumblings on The Bloodvyne, the mental web of linked vampire consciousness. Whispers about a cleansing, about the ruling council hunting vampires with impure blood.
Gabriel finds himself thrust into a new nightmare, where the hunter becomes the hunted. When his maker is taken, he must battle to untangle the mystifying clues laid out in an uncovered labyrinth to find the only creature strong enough to fight against those that hunt his new-found family.
Gaze long into the darkness, and you'll find old vampire foes out for revenge, new ones with their own agenda, and a witch who holds the key. But just who is the monster in the middle?
Blood calls to blood.
Gabriel Davenport and his brothers have found a temporary refuge. But safety is fleeting.
Beneath the streets of London three become five, as the brothers, the "Bloody Little Prophets," are joined by a witch boy sent on a mission and a terrified, persecuted vampire.
But every meeting has its consequences. And one of them is not who he says he is.
One by one, the brothers are torn apart, and all must face their own demons when unexpected questions and uncertainty arise.
Gabriel's quest takes him to the very edge of his morality—to a creature who holds the key to death itself.
What would he give to know why the wings of darkness had always sought him?
And what would any of them sacrifice to save each other?
