Hi everyone! Today's Top Ten comes from Author Teal Haviland. She has her top ten scariest movies to watch around Halloween and info on her latest released book.
The world is in danger. Mankind is sinking deeper into darkness it cannot understand.
Demons are easily capturing souls as they lead men and women down dangerous paths from which there is no return, while Javan, one of the Fallen, seeks an ancient book and the power it promises. If he succeeds, humans — and the world as they know it — will be destroyed.
There is someone who is capable of stopping Javan . . .
If she discovers him in time.
Gabrielle is one of the most powerful angels ever created, her job one of the most important. She has come to Earth to learn more about humans and what influences them, and to fight evil she sees growing at an alarming rate. She soon finds herself carelessly distracted with one human in particular, however. Lucas Watkins holds a promise of peace and love for Gabrielle that she never believed she could have again.
As feelings between her and Lucas become more than she can deny, so do the dangers mounting against him. After discovering who Lucas is, and the choice he faces, she realizes Darkness will come for him through demons and fantastical beings he thought only existed in his imaginings — forcing fairytales to become his reality.
Caught between her new mortal ties and ancient immortal responsibilities, Gabrielle must race against what seems to be an ever-quickening clock to learn what she needs to know, protect Lucas, uncover Javan’s plan, and find a way to stop him and all who live in Shadows.
Things become more complex than she ever anticipated, her decisions more critical, and what begins as a quest for information rapidly places her in an even more crucial position within the longest and most important war ever waged.
Join Gabrielle and her allies in a story of love – past and present – fantastical beings, hidden realms, magic, fate, loss, and the fight of good versus evil.
Teal Haviland’s Top Ten Scariest Movies to Watch for Halloween
Scary movies used to be my thing. I say used to be, because either due to becoming so desensitized to being scared or because movies are more gore than scare nowadays, I don’t get scared by them anymore. That’s why most of the scary movies on my top ten list will be a bit older. Anyway . . . here it goes.
10 ~ The Amityville Horror (1979)
9 ~ The People Under the Stairs (1991)
8 ~ The Omen (1976)
7 ~ Salem’s Lot (1979)
6 ~ Rosemary’s Baby
5 ~ Candyman (1992)
4 ~ Ring (1998)
3 ~ Thirteen Ghosts
2 ~ The Evil Dead (1981)
1 ~ Exorcist (Yep . . . gave me nightmares for YEARS. Over thirty-one years later I refuse to ever watch it again, or even have it on in my home . . . ever. I can’t even stand to look at pictures of it, that’s how much it scared the bejeezus out of me.)
Teal Haviland grew up with a love for anything fantastical or outrageous. As a teen she spent much of her time writing poetry and children’s stories, but set it aside for two decades before allowing her passion for it to take root (or, as she describes, take over her life). After years of dreaming of worlds where fairies, angels, demons, and shape shifters (to name a few) exist, she finally decided to begin writing her stories down. Inception, book one in her series The Reaping Chronicles, is her first published novel. Nowadays she happily spends her writing time penning urban fantasy novels and is testing out her horror/suspense writing abilities. In addition to completing her debut series, Teal is also working on the first book in her second series, The Silver Rift, her first horror/suspense,Whispers of Stacey Glen, and several other works-in-progress.
Residing in Tennessee with her daughter and her four-legged friends, Teal enjoys photography, travel, reading, music, cooking, daydreaming, writing (of course), and above all spending time with her family and friends.
