The Ghost Prison by Joseph Delaney‏

Summary from Goodreads

‘This is the entrance to the Witch Well and behind that door you’d face your worst nightmare. Don’t ever go through there.’

Night falls, the portcullis rises in the moonlight, and young Billy starts his first night as a prison guard. But this is no ordinary prison. There are haunted cells that can’t be used, whispers and cries in the night… and the dreaded Witch Well. Billy is warned to stay away from the prisoner down in the Witch Well. But who could it be? What prisoner could be so frightening? Billy is about to find out…

An unforgettable ghost story from the creator of the Wardstone Chronicles (Spook’s Apprentice) series.… Read more >>>

Zom-B by Darren Shan‏

Summary from Goodreads

Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power and more. This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, “It’s a big, sprawling, vicious tale…a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!”

Paperback, 224 pages

Interview with Ninfa Hayes, Author of Bites


Hi Ninfa, welcome to Fiction Fascination! 🙂

Thank you for having me Carly! I’m really excited to be your guest 🙂

Tell us a little about yourself? 

Oh, shall I make up something interesting or just go with the boring truth? Lol. I was born in Italy but moved to the UK 14 years ago. I live in Manchester with my family which includes two crazy cats, a very patient husband and a hyperactive 4 year old :p
I love my family, and I love Manchester. It’s home.
Last year in May I published my first book, “Bites” through Bitten Fruit Books, followed by a short story called “Nannies, Inc” last Xmas.… Read more >>>

Interview with Meredith Stroud, Author of Portal 24


Summary from Goodreads

When teen con-artist Darius is approached by a mysterious government agent about joining a ‘Project Oberon’, he has no idea what to expect. Certainly not that Project Oberon is actually a top-secret experiment which sends teens back through time to prevent disasters before they happen! Before Darius has time to wonder why he’s been chosen, his first mission arrives in the form of a huge electromagnetic weapon of mass destruction, which will kill millions of people in New York – unless Darius and the team can stop it. They’re confident; it’s all in a day’s work for these teen wonders, but what they don’t bet on is evil mastermind Ludd.Read more >>>

Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve - Review & Guest Post

 Summary from Goodreads

There is a world where gods you’ve never heard of have wound themselves into hearts, and choice has led its history down a different path.

This is a world where France made a small, downtrodden island called England part of its vast and bloated empire.

There are people here who can cross a thousand miles with their minds. There are rarer people still who can move between continents in the blink of an eye.

These people are dangerous.

And wanted. Desperately wanted.

Apprentice hedgewitch Vela Rue knows that she is destined for more. She knows being whisked off from a dull country life to a city full of mystery and intrigue is meant to be.… Read more >>>
