Halloween Nightmare
Dead Oaks Terrors Book 1
by Rena Marin & Skylar McKinzie
Genre:Thriller, Suspense 

Welcome to Dead Oaks.

The New Home of Fear!

Something strange is happening in the sleepy, little, town of Dead Oaks, N.C. Tales of disappearances, strange deaths, murder, and mayhem have been passed down through the town’s history and are now used as scary tales to keep local children behind locked doors at night. Still, it all continues. Whatever sinister force that has its claws into Dead Oaks is still there, and it wants nothing more than to claim the town as its own. 

Six Years Ago

Hikers, campers, and even locals had been disappearing around Dead Oaks Lake. Some claimed the ghost of a local man who went missing years before was the reason. During a neighborly camping get together, Tiffany Sellers vanished in the middle of the night. Mia Evans was the only witness. What she saw that night sent her family far from Dead Oaks in hopes of escaping the evil surrounding the town. 

Present Day

Mia, and her twin sister Tia have come back to their family’s cabin by the lake. Their hopes? To finally put the past behind them and reconnect with old friends for a Halloween bash to remember. As an unexpected snow storm strands the twins and their friends, they find themselves fighting to survive not only the storm but whatever is haunting the lake. Soon they realize, in Dead Oaks, sometimes the past should just stay buried.

Watching the dancing flames of the campfire, Caleb Rollins found himself filled with anticipation. This was the first night since the annual Rollins-Evans
camping tradition had started that his younger brother, Austin, and the Evans
twins, Mia and Tia, were being allowed to stay up and listen to ghost stories.

For years, his father had told stories to him and the twins’ parents. On more than one occasion, he had found himself too scared to sleep. He hoped tonight he would do the tradition honor.

Taking a seat by his girlfriend, Tiffany Sellers, he waited for everyone to
gather around. His brother was trying his best not to show any fear. The girls
were not trying nearly as hard. They were huddled close together, holding hands
near their mother.

Considering the three of them were only thirteen years old, hecould understand why. He popped a marshmallow on his stick and waited for his father to give him the signal to start. When he saw the wink, he leaned forward to begin.
