14. JENNET now she wants the children - Karen Perkins
Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £21.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
‘Jennet will have your heart and your fear in equal measure’
‘Through Jennet we see how cruelty can drive even the most ordinary people to hatred and, in Jennet's case, evil’
Yorkshire is in the grip of a heatwave, and Thruscross Reservoir has dried up to reveal the remains of the drowned village of Thores-Cross beneath.
Playing in the peaty mud which coats the valley floor, four-year-old Clare Wainwright finds an old inkpot, and can’t wait to show it to her best friend, Louise. But when Emma sees it, her reaction is shocking, and both families are plunged into their worst nightmares.
Emma knows what the inkpot portends:
Jennet has woken.
Now she wants the children.
This is not a gore-ridden, jump-scare horror story. This is more real than that. Jennet is a story about the horrific things that people do to each other, and the way we react to that maltreatment – which does not always end with death.
Jennet’s story is a horror story because it’s not necessarily fiction. It reflects the way women were treated in the time that Jennet lived. It reflects the psychology of the abuse cycle. And it reflects real life. All of it.
If, as I believe, the spirit does not die when the physical body dies, then how many spirits are looking for vengeance today?
What wrongs will you want to right when you pass through that veil? What will I?
This is the conclusion of Jennet’s story, which began in The Haunting of Thores-Cross. I hope she finds peace. I really do.
15. Knight of Betrayal A Medieval Haunting - Karen Perkins
Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £19.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
A Haunting Novel of Murder and Betrayal in Medieval England.
A stand-alone paranormal historical thriller in the award-winning Yorkshire Ghost Story collection by Karen Perkins, Knight of Betrayal will plunge you into the vibrant and deadly world of medieval England: Henry II, Thomas Becket - and four murderous knights.
1170, Canterbury Cathedral.
Four knights break sanctuary to brutally murder Archbishop Thomas Becket for their king, Henry II. Running from their crime, the four knights - Hugh de Morville, William de Tracy, Reginald FitzUrse and Richard le Brett - flee north to Knaresborough Castle where Morville is overlord. Initially celebrating ridding their king of the pest that Becket had become, they find themselves increasingly isolated as the Church and public opinion turn against them.
2015, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.
August is feva time - a celebration and festival of the arts. The Castle Players are to perform a play of their own creation: Knight of Betrayal, based on the events leading up to Becket's murder. Taking the honour very seriously, they work hard to get into character - but are they channelling more than just the characters of the knights they are portraying? As the group of friends begins to disintegrate, concern becomes certainty - this is one opening night that will never be forgotten as life in the small Yorkshire market town of Knaresborough tumbles into horror.
Likened by independent reviewers on Amazon to the Brontė sisters, Edgar Allen Poe, Barbara Erskine and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karen Perkins' novels are filled with unflinching honesty and an acute understanding of human nature. She explores not only the depths of humanity, but the motivation behind the actions and pain people inflict upon each other, as well as the repercussions of these actions not only in the short term, but also the later generations who live with the implications of the past.

17. One Bloody Thing After Another (Large Print 16pt) - Joey Comeau
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
Jackie has a map of the city on the wall of her bedroom, with a green pin for each of her trees. She has a first - kiss tree and a broken - arm tree. She has a car - accident tree. There is a tree at the hospital where Jackie's mother passed away into the long good night. When one of them gets cut down, Jackie doesn't know what to do but she doesn't let that stop her. She picks up the biggest rock she can carry and puts it through the window of a car. Smash. She intends to leave before the police arrive, but they're early. Ann is Jackie's best friend, but she's got problems of her own. Her mother is chained up in the basement. How do you bring that up in casual conversation? ''Oh, sorry I've been so distant, Jackie. My mother has more teeth than she's supposed to, and she won't eat anything that's already dead.'' Ann and her sister Margaret don't have much of a choice here. Their mother needs to be fed. It isn't easy but this is family. It's not supposed to be easy. It'll be okay as long as Margaret and Ann still have each other. Add in a cantankerous old man, his powerfully stupid dog, a headless ghost, a lesbian crush and a few unsettling visits from Jackie's own dead mother, and you'll find that One Bloody Thing After Another is a different sort of horror novel from the ones you're used to. It's as sad and funny as it is frightening, and it is as much about the way families rely on each other as it is about blood being drooled on the carpet. Though, to be honest, there is a lot of blood being drooled on the carpet.

"Lush and atmospheric, this novel is dark and moody with supernatural elements and accurate historical details" - Review from the BookLife Prize by Publishers Weekly
Likened by independent reviewers on Amazon to the Brontė sisters, Edgar Allen Poe, Barbara Erskine and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karen Perkins' novels are filled with unflinching honesty and an acute understanding of human nature. She explores not only the depths of humanity, but the depths of human motivation behind the actions and pain people inflict upon each other, as well as the repercussions of these actions not only in the short term, but also the later generations who live with the implications of the past. Karen Perkins won the silver medal for European Fiction in the 2015 IPPY book awards, and her fiction has been at the top of bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, including #50 in the UK Kindle Store.
Nine-year-old Harry Sutcliff hates working at Rooks Mill and is forever in trouble for running away to the wide empty spaces of the moors - empty but for the song of the skylark, the antics of the rabbits, and the explorations of Emily Brontė. Bound together by their love of the moors, Emily and Harry develop a lasting friendship, but not everyone is happy about it - especially Martha, Harry's wife.
As Martha's jealous rages grow in ferocity, Harry does not realise the danger he is in. A hundred and fifty years later, this danger also threatens Verity and her new beau, William. Only time will tell if Verity and William have the strength to fight off the ghosts determined to shape their lives, or whether they will succumb to an age-old betrayal.
