Noctisbellum Inc. was formed to further fringe science. To protect and defend those outside of regular society and those in need of safe harbour. In truth, to allow monsters to live amongst the humans without inciting pitchfork wielding locals to do something about it. Because pitchforks are no longer the weapon of choice.
Ruben Hellebore began his reign with a strict belief in cruelty and justice. Determined not to let those in power forsake all others for the accumulation of their own wealth and status. As times changed he changed with them and so did his company, although, should you displease him or break one of the rules you will be met with that same cruel justice. So if your desire is to be under Noctisbellum’s protection, want your right to exist upheld, and your freedom unquestioned, you must follow Noctisbellum Inc.’s rules.

Joss was a normal, regular girl, with big dreams and high hopes. A fascination with the supernatural led her to make a deal with her parents after she lost her job. They wanted her to experience life and go to University. She wanted to be a world famous ghost hunter, if only her youtube channel and webpage would get more hits. With the help of her two friends, Kyle and Rob, she would make a go of being a professional ghost hunter. Travel to distant lands and seek out the most haunted locations in the back of a camper.
With things seemingly going their way they arrive at their first location, a huge imposing castle, that’s never been investigated before. They go looking for ghosts, what they find is deadlier.

This was a damn good read. The set up seems like it will be a little-cliched ghost story at first, but then it turns into something else entirely. The characters are well developed and I actually cared what happened to them. There’s some nice suspense and the tale builds the tension nicely and comes to a satisfying and horrifying conclusion. If you appreciate a quick read and a nice little twist, I highly recommend this introductory story to what is promising to be the start of an interesting new horror universe! I can’t recommend this enough. Buy it, enjoy it and bite your nails waiting for the next book in the series! – Derek Clark, NY
A young woman with a promise to keep.
Another with a curse to lift.
And a werewolf looking for a new mate.
When Alice invited her friends, Sarah, Paul, and Dave to stay in her Grandmother’s Romanian farmstead they were expecting to take a break from studying and have a good time. Of course, that wasn’t the only reason Alice was there but her friends didn’t need to be involved in that. And she could happily show them where her family was from and the town where she had spent her summers without them ever suspecting anything.
But then they meet the hunter, the werewolves catch their scent, and Sarah reveals a secret that could end her friendship with Alice and spell disaster for all of them.
This is the book that started out as a CryptTV/Inkshares comp entry & is currently in the ScreenCraft Horror Competition as a Script (written by Catherine Hewitt)
A young woman returns with friends to the Romanian town where her family was attacked decades ago by werewolves and endeavours to end an ancient witches curse and save her ancestors and the town from more bloodshed.

I loved it! I was intrigued with the whole witch subplot and I KNEW Sarah was up to something, but wasn’t sure what at first. I felt bad for Dave as he seemed to have no inkling about what was going on and Sarah just kind of used him. Well, not kind of lol I really enjoyed the magical battle and I liked how Pa was basically just toying with Sarah. – Beta Reader’s Response, edited so there’s no spoilers 😉
