(Scotland 1388: Fergus Scott of Eildon is sent northward to investigate reports of a new power rising in the Highlands. Enticed into the power of the ferocious Alistair Mor, Wolf of Bedonoch, the lovely but quick tempered Seonaid aids him in his battle against enchantment and death.
&
As witches gather to recreate the terrifying Book of Black Earth, and the army of Donald of the Isles marches to confront Alistair, Fergus must try and save his soul and his country.

But this is a book of a long and grand adventure, that Mr. Archibald weaves history through with his fiction to make the story that much richer. It’s full of the sense of time being against you, making you want to read faster and absorb every part of the journer, mysticism, legend and some magic. Yet another excellent book. If you’ve read the other reviews I’ve written for Malcolm Archibald’s books, you can see I’m a big fan and that’s for a reason

Resident Deputy Jessica McGuire’s day starts much the same as usual, but when she jogs by the old family cemetery she discovers the grave of a baby had been dug up and the skeleton missing. It wasn’t much later when Pastor David Tanner reports the theft of a hand-carved redwood cross from his church. Next a baby goat is reported stolen and one of the pastor’s cows discovered mutilated in the field. Jessica and Pastor David team up to investigate these strange occurrences. He is convinced Satan worshiping is going on in their town. Jessica isn’t sure until she discovers a hooded and robed group meeting in the woods who flee upon her arrival. She knows she needs to get to the bottom of things before what’s going on escalates into something worse. Or has it already?

What they’re saying about it:

The Devil’s Foothold by Marilyn Meredith Review by Diana Hockley, Kings River Life magazine.

“Marilyn Meredith dredges deep for this story of evil and her research is impeccable. Whether one believes in the devil’s work or not, the reader’s heart can only beat faster as Jessica and David follow what leads they can to discover who is behind an increasingly horrific series of crimes. The author skilfully weaves miasma into every page, as danger edges closer to Jessica and her son, Jonathon.

Well-written and superbly paced, there are no histrionics in this plot, just dogged determination on the part of the realistic and likeable main characters. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I will just say that book is a must read and a keeper!”

Steve Dane, The Rogue Gentleman, an international adventurer who rights wrongs wherever he finds them, fails to prevent a young woman’s abduction. But that does not stop him from finding her. Officially hired by the girl’s father, Dane battles gunman and evades police as he discovers the decades-old vendetta behind the kidnapping; he soon learns that the grudge is just the beginning and peels back the layers of a more fiendish plan that goes beyond a desire for vengeance. Assisted by his lover, the luscious Nina Talikova, Steve Dane dives head first, the only way he knows how, into a conspiracy of terror the likes of which the world has never seen, orchestrated by a powerful and mysterious woman known only as “The Duchess”. When Dane finds The Duchess he will sacrifice anything, including his life, to destroy her.
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“The Rogue Gentleman is Steve Dane, a former Marine, a former CIA agent, a former Mercenary commander who is now a freelance trouble shooter with his girlfriend Nina Talikova, a former KGB agent. The pair is fun to read. I was reminded of Michael Weston and Fiona Glenane from Burn Notice and Simon Templar and Patricia Holm from the Saint stories. Nina is quite blood thirsty and frequently complains that she doesn’t get enough action and teases Dane when he looks at other women. In fact she declares the young woman Steve is looking at has barely stopped growing just before she gets kidnapped [which] sends the pair on this adventure. Dane is equally intriguing with a clearly defined history as a Marine, a CIA agent, mercenary commander and now world traveling trouble shooter but there are still mysteries about just why he went freelance and just what connection he has to the President of the United States (who bares some resemblance to the first George Bush). As an opening novel this really sets up the series to come with hints at mysterious pasts for both Steve and Nina and some intriguing possibilities for future adventures. Brian Drake’s writing is really enjoyable with a couple of nice tips of the hat to Jerry Ahern. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more adventures of The Rogue Gentleman.” [Amazon Review]

The assassination of heroes was once a warning—for an invasion that nearly  destroyed the world. On the brink of total victory, the black horde mysteriously  vanished, leaving terrified survivors . . . and rumors. As the centuries passed,  the holocaust faded into legend, and finally myth. But death is stalking heroes  once more, and only a miracle will allow life to survive again . . . a miracle  named Elseerian.

What they’re saying:

“Great read and well written book. pays homage to classic works of Fantasy like  The Lord of the Rings, as well as more current Writers like R. A. Salvatore.  takes me back to playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends in High School. I  am eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this story. A must read is an  understatement.”

“I was surprised how good it was! I was prepared for something  that would, in the very least, entertain me. I didn’t think it would be so well  written and be as detailed as it was. The author went to great lengths to create  real life, believable characters and to describe scenery and actions scenes to  such great detail, the whole book had such beautiful imagery, you can see it  all. The beginning of the first chapter is beautiful, I could definitely see it  on screen. Not only that, but the story had me at the edge of my seat near the  end, I love how it all comes together so well! I can’t wait to find out what  happens in the next book! Excitement.”

Valley of the Scarecrow by Gord Rollo

Gord Rollo’s chilling homage to slasher films!
During the  great depression, a small backwoods community in Iowa face even more  difficult times than most, having to endure the slowly fading sanity of  their leader, Reverend Joshua Miller. When it is clear the man has  slipped beyond the edge of reason and perhaps signed a deal with the  devil, the citizens unite to stop him any way they can, breaking into  the church to lash the reverend to his wooden alter cross then boarding  up the windows and doors to leave him to fate and God’s judgment. The  people of Oak Valley then abandoned their town to the cornfields and  woods; ending the madness for what they hoped was forever.

They were wrong!  Seventy-four years later, the corn and trees have taken back the area and not much  is left of the once thriving little community but Joshua Miller’s  desecrated church still stands, and within its boarded up and sun-baked  walls something that used to be a holy man waits for whoever is  unfortunate enough to release him from his cross…

What they’re saying:

“This is a roller coaster ride of blood, gore, and (best of all!), pure scary fun. The characters are engaging, the plot is fun, and it’s a good read from start to finish.”

“This is classic horror. Think teen-slasher movie.”

“In Valley of the Scarecrow, Gord Rollo offers a return to the golden age of horror, chock full of good old-fashioned chills.”
