New Releases from Valhalla Books

Red Sounding by Winfield H. Strock, III

Terror knows no boundaries, especially when brothers must fight their own to survive.
The crew of K-389 cannot face the horrific, unnatural truth. Blood-drained bodies, crewmates stricken with rabid madness, and shared dreams of a redheaded woman all provide glaring clues. The longer the command seeks an orthodox explanation, the deeper the crew descends into chaos. Only when Mikhail Koryavin survives a vampire attack does he put the pieces together. He must recruit brave believers to save their ship. As the crew dwindles and the vampire ranks swell, questions more dangerous arise. Who accepts an invitation to join the undead? Who feasts on his brothers-in-arms without remorse? What will they do with a submarine armed for Armageddon?

The Midnight Collection by Ryan Dunn

Macabre songs and poems from the dark of the night!
The Midnight Collection offers a thrilling gothic rollercoaster of emotions through dark poetry, song lyrics, and illustrations. Raw, gritty, and unbridled, Dunn takes the reader on a tour through jaded love, addiction, death, war; all through his mind’s eye. There are no full stops along the way, and your journey into madness has only begun. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

The Jackson Cole Series by John Stamp

The victims are marked with odd, occult symbols and the press is stirring up a killer cult frenzy in the media. The mayor, the Chief of Police, and Cole’s Captain want results to calm an increasingly fearful public; and Cole’s supposed partner is nowhere to be found. Cole has zero leads, he’s floundering under the scrutiny of his entire command staff until a stranger shows up spouting a wild theory: blood magic.

Floundering or not Cole won’t even consider it. There is no such thing as magic, no such thing as voodoo; and there are no demons roaming the Charleston Peninsula. There’s always a rational explanation for the evil humans commit upon one another. Then a demon tries to take Cole’s head off.

How do you stop a supernatural evil, something ancient and unencumbered by the laws of either physics or man? Especially when all you bring to the fight is a pistol and a pair of handcuffs. If Jackson Cole wants this case to close, he will have to take on a world of the impossible. Then he’ll have to survive it.

Book 1 & 2 out now!
