A New Winter Horror Series

“Can you outrun the stillness?” Winter is the perfect time to scare yourself with a new horror series.

“Do you enjoy the classic horror style seen in The Haunting of Hill House? The creepy chills seen in Japanese horror films? Have you read USA Today bestselling horror author Darcy Coates?”

If not, you’re just in time to get engrossed in her new Black Winter series.

Library Journal said of the first book in the series, Voices in the Snow, “Readers will cover their eyes in fear while still wanting, desperately, to turn the page to see what comes next.” Secrets in the Dark, the second book in the series, will be published in April. You can order Voices in the Snow right now through the Web Store, and pre-order Secrets in the Dark. https://bit.ly/38MP5C0

Here’s the description of Voices in the Snow, the first in the Black Winter series from author Darcy Coates and Sourcebooks/Poisoned Pen Press.

No One Escapes the Stillness

Clare remembers the cold. She remembers abandoned cars and children’s toys littered across the road. She remembers dark shapes in the snow and a terror she can’t explain. And then…nothing. When she wakes, aching and afraid in a stranger’s gothic home, he tells her she was in an accident. He claims he saved her. Clare wants to leave, but a vicious snowstorm has blanketed the world in white, trapping them together, and there’s nothing she can do but wait.

At least the stranger seems kind…but Clare doesn’t know if she can trust him. He promised they were alone here, but she sees and hears things that convince her something else is creeping about the surrounding woods, watching. Waiting. Between the claustrophobic storm and the inescapable sense of being hunted, Clare is on edge…and increasingly certain of one thing:

Her car crash wasn’t an accident. Something is waiting for her to step outside the fragile safety of the house… something monstrous, something unfeeling.

Something desperately hungry.
