SANTA MUERTE + THE MISSING
by Cynthia Pelayo
In life, sometimes the only thing that can save you is death. Ariana Molina is a high school senior living in secret in Chicago, in hopes her father’s enemies do not find her. One day her father Reynaldo Molina, the lead federal investigator in Mexico targeting criminal organizations, arrives unexpectedly at her doorstep. After he is involved in a strange car accident that leaves one person dead, Ari begins to have visions of a veiled skeletal figure trying to lure her. Struggling with visions of gruesome ghosts in the day and night, Ari is soon stalked by Chicago street gang members suspicious of her real identity. When Ari discovers they are indeed members of Mexico’s most ruthless drug cartel who want her and her father dead, she has to make a choice to save their life and only Santa Muerte, the saint of death, can help her.
Ariana Molina has returned to Mexico, after discovering the existence of a half-sister who has been kidnapped along with a group of students. She’s in a race to save her sister from the Mexican drug cartel suspected of kidnapping and murdering thousands. Yet, during this trip back to Mexico Ari learns of her true connection to Santa Muerte, the Mexican saint of death. She must now decide whether to align herself with death, making a deal with the darkness to save the only living family member she has left, while also facing Mexico’s nameless, torturous rising criminal El Catrin.

As April winds down, I have two new titles up for pre-order. These should be shipping next week (along with the other April announcements: Blue Hell and Where the Devil Waits).
Welcome to Forest Grove. A nice place to visit. The perfect place to die.
As a teenager, Melanie Holden did what many others died trying to do. She killed Cryus Hoyt, the summer camp madman who terrorized the residents of Forest Grove. But now, years later, Melanie is haunted by persistent feelings that Hoyt isn’t dead.
So Melanie’s going back to where it all began. To face those fears and (hopefully) put those demons to bed. Only someone’s been waiting for her, and now the most sadistic mass murderer in the region has seemingly returned, stalking the streets in his infamous welder’s mask with an arsenal of cutlery by his side. As the bodies pile up and a decades-old crime is unearthed, the stage is set for one final confrontation between Final Girl and Masked Maniac.
No matter who wins, Forest Grove will never be the same.

After waking up in a hospital bed, paralyzed from the waist down, Charlie Snyder had no idea where life would take her. Dejected, broken, and permanently bound to a wheelchair, she believed her life was truly over. That is…until gravity no longer applied.
It started out slow. Floating from room to room. Menial tasks without assistance. When she decided to venture outside and take some real risks with her newfound ability, she rose above her own constraints to reveal a whole new world, and found other damaged individuals just like her to confide in.
But there are other things out there, waiting in the dark. Repulsive, secretive creatures that don’t want Charlie to touch the sky. And they’ll stop at nothing to keep her on the ground.
Only 50 copies! $70.

The new position makes him uncomfortable and, while he’s told there are numerous coworkers, they never seem to be around much when he’s there. When his best friend goes missing and his new supervisors show up at a party, Jake begins to dig deeper. All of the strange occurrences seem to connect to a discontinued role-playing game Jake owned as a child, Mage of the Hellmouth. It all leaves Jake wondering what secrets are hidden in the ice cream.
