My Teaser for this week is from

The Dover Demon

by Hunter Shea

Genre: Horror

 My teaser from 28% in the eBook.

In this scene, Kelly is watching footage from a security camera in her house. She was passed out on the couch.

What she hadn’t seen before was the dark figure standing behind the couch, looking down at her. It had a thin neck and large, oval head. Somehow, the television’s light stopped just short of the figure, keeping it bathed in shadow. All except for the flesh of its long, tapered fingers, bone white and needle thin, as they touched her breast.

Kelly screamed until her throat was raw.

I read this some time ago and don’t remember that much. I’ll be sharing a review for my 31 Days of Halloween Horror feature and wanted to reread it to recall the story. It’s scarier than I remember! LOL

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

The Dover Demon is real…and it has returned.

In 1977, Sam Brogna and his friends came upon a terrifying, alien creature on a deserted country road. What they witnessed was so bizarre, so chilling, they swore their silence. But their lives were changed forever.

Decades later, the town of Dover has been hit by a massive blizzard. Sam’s son, Nicky, is drawn to search for the infamous cryptid, only to disappear into the bowels of a secret underground lair. The Dover Demon is far deadlier than anyone could have believed. And there are many of them. Can Sam and his reunited friends rescue Nicky and battle a race of creatures so powerful, so sinister, that history itself has been shaped by their secretive presence?

    Ooo… alien horror! Not sure whether this one would be too gory for me, but it does sound very creepy. My TT this week is a fantasy adventure I’m just starting –
