After their beautiful yet brief bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force are forced to separate.

But Schuyler quickly discovers that everything she believed about the Gate to be wrong. Meanwhile, Jack makes the difficult decision to return to New York to face his twin and former bondmate, Mimi. But instead of a bitter reunion, he is faced with a choice for which there is no good option.

Mimi, with a most unexpected travel companion in Oliver Hazard-Perry, jets off to Egypt, too, to search for Kingsley Martin, her long lost love. With all roads leading to Hell, Mimi learns that not all love stories have happy endings. But she'll have to put her own feelings aside if she's going to save her crumbling Coven.

  1. Bitten by R.L. Stine - I just prefer my vampires to be romanticized - not turning into hairy bats.

  2. Hmmm...I think I would pick The Takers by R.W. Ridley. I don't know why but when I was reading this book I was by myself and it was dark and I freaked myself out and had to stop reading until the next morning :)

  3. Unwind by Neil Shusterman which has a very descriptive scene about a boy being surgically deconstructed for organ donation while he is still conscious and his not feeling it really doesn't make it any better.

  4. I would have to go with Feed by Mira Grant. It was scary to think of all the ways you could be at risk for getting the virus.

  5. Twisted of the Pretty Little Liar series. It's just so freaky and sickening and if it were real HORRIBLE!Haha I still love it anyway :)

  6. The Heart of War by Lisa Beth Darling, this scene only disturbed me the first time I read it because I wasn't exactly prepared for what I was reading.

    The hero's name is Aries and he went to get more info on a woman that was staying with him on his island (he's an exiled Olympian.)

    Anyway, trying to come straight to the point here. He found out that the woman was part of a church mission and was cruelly treated by an African overlord, after he found out about this he got revenge for the woman (Maggie) by killing the overlord and mounting his head on a pike.

    This particular scene wouldn't stay out of my head for a long while. This more to this but I'm trying not to gross anybody out so I'll just leave it at that.

    After that scene though the book is really good!

  7. Push by Sapphire. It really grossed me out, and I know the things that happened to the girl in the story do actually happen to real girls around the world. I would just rather read something that would cheer me up, than read something that would remind me of the world we are living in.

  8. I once tried to read The Tears of the Dragon by Stephen King. In it, he wrote about a jester that displeased this king in the begining of the story. The king was sick and threw up in the middle of yelling at the jester, then he smiled evily and told the jester to come lick it off the floor. I think that was one of the sickest things I have read. I couldn't continue the book after that. Sorry to everyone reading this that I had to say that so bluntly.

  9. The Riddles of Epsilon by Christine Morton Shaw used to creep me out so much. It's the poetry and the thriller-type mystery story that both appeals to me and terrifies me.

    Coraline by Neil Gaiman terrified me for the same reason.

    I think the most disturbing book that scared and grossed me out was Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott because it's so realistic and scary, and part of what makes it disturbing is the themes it covers (child abduction and rape) and the fact that they really are so very real.

    Sometimes I love Bentley Little's books, sometimes I don't. He's one of the best horror writers of the century ... BUT, in the book The Store it got so dark & depraved towards the end that I had to stop reading. I couldn't take that level of twistedness lol
    Never did finish reading it :P

  11. I just read The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor. Wow talk about extreme gore. He describes every bloody detail when they kill the zombies. Plus it is a really messed up book but in a good way. I love horror/gory books and movies!

  12. I don't read any horror and not too many books that are scary, but Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar had some truly horrible vampires in it that really freaked me out. I loved the book though, so it was in a good way.

  13. Not a horror book or anything but Want to Go Private? By Sarah Littman - oh my god it was scary to see how real the dangers of the internet are!

  14. I don't read very many scary stories. But I guess the most disturbing I've read is Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann. The end of the book gets quite intense.

  15. Don't remember the name, but it was part the cheerleader series from Fear Street, by R.L Stine. In it, someone puts rotting, putrid meat filled with maggots in the main character's bed. That image has scarred me for life. I don't sleep in my sheets anymore...

  16. I think the most disturbing thing I have read recently is Fallen by Lauren Kate. I'm usually not one to sit around complaining about how people write their characters, but Daniel is the most creepy love interest I've ever seen in a book, period. I simply did not like him. My apologies as I realize this is not exactly what you had in mind, but it's the closest I had since I don't tend to be scared easily by stories.

  17. I recently read "Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children"
    It wasn't scary, but it was kind of creepy...It really makes you think! :)

  19. I can only Recall two books that have ever truly freaked me out. The first was Sweet Valley Twins #100: If I Die Before I Wake. I was maybe in second grade when I read this book my mom brought home a huge box of Sweet Valley books for me and that was one of my faves but It gave me nightmares. The one that really messed with me was Ted Dekkers Th3e it was amazing but it messed with my over imaginative head

  20. I read this book called Bedbugs by Ben Winters that freaked me out! It had me itching and scratching and obsessive checking all of the furniture in my house for weeks. Especially since I hate bugs!

  21. I don't read ANY super scary/gross books if I can help it, I'm a huge chicken when it comes to getting scared! That being said, I've always attempted to start reading a Stephen King novel (I've attempted several!) but I never can get past like the first or second chapter :/!

  22. I recently read Bed Bugs and it literally made my skin crawl!

  23. I'm not easily scared by books, but I was disturbed by some of the scenes in Guilty Pleasures, as they were the first books like that I'd read.

  24. I have to say IT by Stephen King, spiders and clowns *shivers*

  25. I don't really get scared by books, but one that I did find disturbing was Swamplandia. Not a full paranormal book, but it was disturbing because of how the children grew up and the world that they grew up in. Crazy to think about!

  26. I think the book that freaked me the most was The Amittyville Horror and The Exorcist. The movies are scary but there is just something about the books and your imagination going wild that kicks'em up a notch.

  27. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan was the most disturbing for me. Riveting but very disturbing and something that I won't likely soon forget and I read that book about 2 years ago. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  28. The most disturbing book that I have ever read was Jenny Pox by JL Bryan. It was horrifying and I absolutely hated it. There is a second book, but I don't think I'll read it if it was anything like the first. It shouldn't be classified as a young adult novel. It's content is much more mature than that.

  29. The most disturbing books I have read are by John Saul. He writes psychological thrillers and he use real places for the settings -- several of them were set near me!!!!

  30. Hm, I don't think I've ever read any horror type of books before. But if I had to choose one, I don't think this is anywhere in that area, but the concept of a book that kinda appalled me was The Hunger Games because just the fact of punishing the districts by throwing kids into an arena and them having to kill off each other, it's terrible, but I do admit its a really good storyline (:

  34. The Devouring by Simom Holt. I will never look at December the same way again.

  35. Most disturbing book I have read is more of a memoir. The Unquiet Ghost by Adam Hochschild. I read this years ago and there are scenes in it that haven't left my brain yet. And it is worse because it is all true. Thanks again hon :)

  36. The Devouring series by Simon Holt. I don't even want to think about the fears they'd torment me with.

  37. The Taker by Alma Katsu. It was gross. Molestation, Manipulation, mind control and abuse. Yuck!

  38. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski freaked me out. It was my first time living by myself far from home and I kept feeling like creepy things were happening right outside my line of vision.

  39. Most books by Stephen King freak me out. I stoped reading him. I am equally freaked out by the fact that he actually comes up with this stuff. I wonder what truly goes on in his head!

  40. Reckless by Cornelia Funke scared me

    Into the Wild Nerd Yonder disgusted me. It is very "discriptive" in a way. but i loved it!
