The Prisoners of Stewartville by Shannon Felton is the new Sandra Brown and Heather Graham. Her writing style is similar to those favorite writers of mine.

The realities of what is written hit really hard with me. As that most of the stuff has happened in reality. This journey was a haunting reminder of what once was and what is now happening. Creepy and heartbreaking this story was well-written. I look forward to reading more by this talented debut novelist. The scenery and imaging are so vivid it’s insane! I felt instantly transported from my chair to the sad town of Stewartville. The horror found in the beginning only grows worse as the pages are turned. This is wonderful if one is into dark horror novels. Overall, I highly recommend this book to all readers.
