Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Recently I turned you on to the new horror title by the supremely talented Alex Vorkov. Let me add to your Halloween-season TBR list by recommending the latest thriller by everyone’s favorite paranormal mystery writer, Carrie Rubin.
It’s called The Bone Elixir, and it’s the third installment in her Benjamin Oris series. If you’re a fan, and you should be, you’ll remember the first two books, in which surgical resident, Ben Oris, encounters otherworldly antagonists and manages to hold his own against the manifold forces of evil out there in the world. He should probably be in the funny farm by now, but no—Ben is so well-adjusted that he takes these horrific experiences in stride.
I’m not offering a true review of the book because I was lucky enough to edit it for Carrie, but I can tell you that she is definitely a writer who’s at the top of her game these days and gives her readers a hair-raising thrill ride every time out. Here’s the blurb for The Bone Elixir to whet your appetite:
Ben Oris, an orthopedic surgery resident in Philadelphia, is looking forward to his December vacation. After the year he’s had, he could use a little R&R. But when a lawyer delivers some bizarre news, a week of rest and relaxation is the last thing he gets. A great aunt he never knew existed has willed a hotel to him.
Bewildered, Ben now heads to Western Massachusetts where the three-century-year-old Abigael Inn awaits, up on a secluded hill overlooking the Berkshires. At least Laurette will join him in a few days. He and his girlfriend will have some fun, meet with a realtor, and then put the place up for sale and get back to their lives. In, out, done.
Unfortunately for them, The Abigael Inn has other plans…
If you like haunted house tales, this one will flavor your Halloween better than any pumpkin spice latte.
