Dusk Warriors, Guest Blog by Emerian Rich

Author Lisa Vasquez

dwBARDusk’s Warriors
by Emerian Rich

dwbook3d2Heaven has opened up and welcomed the vampires of Night’s Knights into a new reality. As they struggle to find their place in their new world, trouble brews on Earth.

Demon servant, Ridge, is causing havoc by gathering up all the souls on Earth that have been touched by immortality. When he injures one of the Night’s Knights crew, he launches a war between the vampires of Heaven, the Big Bad in Hell, and a mortal street gang of vigilante misfits.

Will Julien, Markham, and Reidar be able to defeat the evil that’s returned, or will they once again need Jespa’s help?

Emerian Rich and the ‘Dusk’s Warriors’ Take Over

Retro Reviews

dwbook3d2Fiendish friends, it’s October and it’s time for the Blog Take Over Tour! Today’s offering is from Author and all around Horror Super-Friend, Emerian Rich and her novel, Dusk’s Warriors, the follow up to her smash, Night’s Knights. Once again on display in Dusk’s Warriors is Emz’s keen eye and rich world building. But don’t be lulled into thinking you or her characters are safe… Because the scares are still ready to grab you from the page.

Ok, enough chatter from me. Read away… if you dare:

Excerpt from Dusk’s Warriors:

She grasped the iron handle and pushed, not knowing what to expect on the other side. When she stepped in, her bare feet made no sound on the cold stone beneath her. She saw one torch at the far end of the long barren room. A lone figure sat atop a throne at the far end of the hall…

Dusk’s Warriors by Emerian Rich

Sumiko Saulson

Child abuse is unfortunately a prevalent plague infecting our world. In Dusk’s Warriors, dwbook3d2.pnga group of vigilante street kids all have abuse in common, but instead of dwelling on the cruelty they endured, they use it as a powerful tool against evil.

Every kid in the Drog has been there. They’ve hid in closets away from angry fists. They’ve prayed for justice as their parents starved them, or beat them, or drugged them. Rescued by their brethren, they fight against others who would harm innocents. They adopt the name of their torture device and use it as a badge of honor.

Excerpt from Dusk’s Warriors:

“They call me Nails.”
Reidar didn’t have to ask why, he could see Nail’s thoughts. As Nails said his name, he remembered the torture he’d endured as a child. Someone, a foggy, obscured figure in his memory, had driven nails into his skin. The boy…

Review: HorrorAddicts Horror Bites: Alice’s Scars by Adam Bealby

As the editor of this HorrorBites Story, I had the opportunity to not only read it early but often. What a story to choose to read multiple times. I remember where I was when I found out what happened to Alice, and you will too. This story is a great one to be told. It is told as if Adam is recounting a memory of  Alice he once knew. He was able to give us a short, small glimpse of what bipolar disorder does to the one with it and those that love them.

I have noticed recently several horror writers have been writing stories of mental illness from depression to bipolar. Sometimes, mental illness is more horrific than any fiction writer could ever tell. Lifting the stigma of these illnesses will allow us to advance in not only understanding but…
