HUSKER

“THIS IS TRULY ONE OF THE MOST TERRIFYING STORIES WE’VE EVER READ; AND WE’VE READ A LOT OF STEPHEN KING 🙂 – DARE WE SAY IT, BUT EVEN MR KING COULD LEARN A THING OR TWO FROM HUSKER – IT’S AS PSYCHOLOGICALLY CHILLING AS IT IS DESCRIPTIVELY.”

As a young teenager, running away after her mother died and never returning home, Jennifer Rollins’ fear of forfeiting her mind to the schizophrenia that took her mother has followed Jennifer throughout her life. Jennifer got some lucky breaks. She became a popular model, but her fears, and lifestyle in the fast lane finally take their toll.

As she reconnects with old friends and her beau from high school, Jennifer sees horrific images, hears terrifying things and is sure her worst fears are now manifesting. While grappling with her sanity, Jennifer is convinced the killer is coming for her after, hidden away in the attic of her childhood home, she discovers a connection to the murders from the distant past. When she takes it to the police, knowing her much publicized history they dismiss her. As the police believe they are closing in on the maniac, and Jennifer wrestles with her demons, neither have a clue of the true horror about to descend.

“…impressive extreme horror, justice coming straight from Hell, with several poetic licenses that mark the story with the most important of Johnson’s prints: REVENGE, VISCERA and love for all BROKEN SOULS.” TBM Horror

“Johnson has such a talent as a writer; everything is so visual and has a real cinematic texture to the description and flow. In that respect, it really is unlike most horrors or thrillers we’ve read… Earlier we mentioned about the authors intelligence in his writing, and this is heavily based in the way that, as a reader, you feel like you know where things are going (and feel rather clever in the process), only to have the rug pulled from under your feet and taken in a whole new direction. There’s nothing more refreshing or exciting than surprise and Johnson knows exactly how to use it!” – Dr. Who Online

“This is the second piece of work I have read from Marc Johnson, and he didn’t fail me… This is a must read, I didn’t know what was going to happen next! 5 stars.”

May I be 10000% sincere? I can’t ruin the book by explaining WHY it turns into paths that will bring you such a horrific delight, I just can tell you “Believe me, and check it out by yourself.””

And then try another horrifying read…

The “whodunit” facet of Legacy helps reshape the brutal visage of Red Riding Hood into the modern day. Lacing throughout this vicious mystery are secrets, a sense of duty, and the spice of betrayal demanding sacrifice and change.

The life of unsuspecting pregnant workaholic and afraid to fail Rebecca “Rose” Healy starts to unravel ferociously when unknown creatures savagely murder two friends. Rose’s life completely derails as she accidentally witnesses her father killed by a werewolf that has set a trap for him and his team, and she loses her baby. The family secret of werewolf hunting kept from her on the wishes of her dead mother is now out.

With many bloody clues left behind the authorities hone in on Rose, her aunt and the butler. The hunters have become the hunted. Rose’s aunt suspects a werewolf has infiltrated their ranks. Rose’s strong-willed aunt uses her sense of duty, family obligation and Rose’s fear of failure and disappointment to manipulate Rose into the family business. While Rose vigorously trains, and the family desperately try to identify the spy authorities grow more suspicious of their involvement in the gruesome murders.

As authorities close in, the family finds evidence against someone close to them and the final battle reveals a betrayal and the darkest secret of all forcing a gut wrenching choice.

“This is a fast paced really suspenseful book. It’s such a great new twist on a classic fairytale that will leave you shocked at the ending. I really hope that there will be a follow up book. This would make such a great series.”

“If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be without a shadow of a doubt, “shuddering”. Johnson knows how to keep you awake. Playing with dialogues, he makes you jump from one scene to another without giving you the option to stop, because… you don’t want to stop.”

About Author Marc W. Johnson:

My love of horror and science fiction in both the written word and movie began with my mother who loved them as well. It was instilled in my fragile psyche at the tender age of five although, I did not know it at the time. She took me in our Black Ford Fairlane to see Romero’s Night of the Living Dead at the local drive-in. To this day I remember cowering in the backseat asking “is it day yet, is it day yet?” Mom and I had some belly laughs about that for many years before the bell tolled and called her home. The nightmares eventually subsided and as my childhood moved on I found myself drawn to all things scary and scifi.  Luckily, she had books by Phillip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov and Harlan Ellison among many others just hanging around the house. I soon found the depraved minds of King and Koontz to my liking and of course other writers as well. It wasn’t long that I became a fan of Hammer Studios and actors like Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Vincent Price and the lists could go on. Suffice to say, I was hooked. In my teens I began to write short stories and poems, some of which I had updated and you can find in my first book “A Collection of Dark Short Stories and Poetry.” However, life happens and I had to put away such dreams, until after mom passed and found an old stained and tattered story of mine in a box in her garage, it was then that I felt the barest little warmth begin to surge within me. It took a while for me to understand what it was, it was mom letting me know I could still have my dream.
