Ania Ahlborn - The ​Devil Crept In
An ​unforgettable horror novel from bestselling sensation Ania Ahlborn—hailed as a writer of “some of the most promising horror I’ve encountered in years” (_New York Times_bestselling author Seanan McGuire)—in which a small-town boy investigates the mysterious disappearance of his cousin and uncovers a terrifying secret kept hidden for years. Young Jude Brighton has been missing for three days, and while the search for him is in full swing in the small town of Deer Valley, Oregon, the locals are starting to lose hope. They’re well aware that the first forty-eight hours are critical and after that, the odds usually point to a worst-case scenario. And despite Stevie Clark’s youth, he knows that, too; he’s seen the cop shows. He knows what each ticking moment may mean for Jude, his cousin and best friend. That, and there was that boy, Max Larsen...the one from years ago, found dead after also disappearing under mysterious circumstances. And then there were the animals: pets gone missing out of yards. For years, the residents of Deer Valley have murmured about these unsolved crimes…and that a killer may still be lurking around their quiet town. Now, fear is reborn—and for Stevie, who is determined to find out what really happened to Jude, the awful truth may be too horrifying to imagine.

As drama builds among the friends, something lurks in the forest, watching the cabin, growing ever bolder as the snow falls…and hunger rises. After a blizzard leaves the group stranded, the true test of their love and loyalty begins as the hideous creatures outside close in, one bloody attack at a time. Now Ryan, Jane, and their friends must fight—tooth and nail, bullet and blade—for their lives. Or else surrender to unspeakable deaths in the darkened woods.

But years later, the bright new future he’s built suddenly turns pitch black, as something fiendishly familiar looms dead ahead.

So when he's promised exclusive access to notorious cult leader and death row inmate Jeffrey Halcomb, the opportunity is too good to pass up. Lucas leaves New York for the scene of the crime-a split-level farmhouse on the gray-sanded beach of Washington State-a house whose foundation is steeped in the blood of Halcomb's diviners; runaways who, thirty years prior, were drawn to his message of family, unity, and unconditional love. Lucas wants to tell the real story of Halcomb's faithful departed, but when Halcomb goes back on his promise of granting Lucas exclusive information on the case, he's left to put the story together on his own. Except he is not alone. For Jeffrey Halcomb promised his devout eternal life...and within these walls, they're far from dead.

Someone—or something—has other plans. Like Aaron, Holbrook House is but a shell of what it once was, a target for vandals and ghost hunters who have nicknamed it “the devil’s den.” Aaron doesn’t believe in the paranormal—at least, not until a strange boy begins following him wherever he goes. Plagued by violent dreams and disturbing visions, Aaron begins to wonder if he’s losing his mind.

Ania Ahlborn - The ​Neighbors
Andrew ​Morrison sacrificed everything—his childhood, his education, and the girl of his dreams—to look after his alcoholic mother. But enough is enough, and now he’s determined to get out and live his life. That means trading the home he grew up in for a rented room in the house of an old childhood friend—both of which are in sorry shape. The only thing worse than Drew’s squalid new digs and sullen new roommate is the envy he feels for the house next door: a picture-perfect suburban domicile straight out of Norman Rockwell, with a couple of happy householders to match. But the better acquainted he gets with his new neighbors—especially the sweet and sexy Harlow Ward—the more he suspects unspeakable darkness beyond the white picket fence. At the intersection of Blue Velvet and Basic Instinct lies The Neighbors, an insidiously entertaining tale of psychological suspense and mounting terror by the boldest new master of the form, Ania Ahlborn.

Ania Ahlborn - Vértestvérek
Az ​Appalache-hegység mélyén található egy ház, messze a civilizációtól. A Morrow család lakja, akik magányos, maguknak való emberek. Csak néha mennek be a legközelebbi városba, egyébként senkit nem zavarnak. S épp ezért senki nem megy hozzájuk kérdéseket feltenni, amikor eltűnik egy-egy fiatal lány. Pedig elég lenne csak felásni a környéküket, és Nyugat-Virginia állam legkegyetlenebb gyilkosai lepleződnének le. A tizenkilenc éves Michael is kötelességtudóan részt vesz családja erőszakos tevékenységében, de sosem lelte örömét benne. A fákon át visszhangzó sikolyoktól sokszor kirázza a hideg. Normális életre vágyik, és bízik benne, hogy egyszer meg is kapja... Mikor a szomszédos kisváros lemezboltjában találkozik Alice-szel, azonnal megigézi valami, és meglátja a kiutat. Egy pillanatra elfelejt minden szörnyűséget, ami az életét kísérte. Azonban a családja rögtön emlékezteti, hogy hol a helye. Ania Ahlborn regénye pokoli utazás az amerikai vidék kietlen zugaiba, ahol velejéig romlott emberek tesznek kimondhatatlan dolgokat. A _Vértestvérek_ nem csak az utóbbi évek egyik legsokkolóbb horrora, de egyben tanúbizonysága annak is, hogy a műfaj nem csak a férfi szerzőké.

A félelmük hirtelen valósággá válik, amikor Stevie, aki mindenáron ki akarja deríteni, mi történt Jude-dal, rádöbben a szörnyű igazságra.
