The world of vampires takes an unexpected twist in The Dead Game: Book One of the Dead Game Series.
When I started reading The Dead Game, I was shown a dark scene with a family trying to escape a house, then it fades to black and returns with Linda moving to Oasis to start a new life away from New York City. It’s quite obvious that something isn’t right in Oasis, though, I’m not sure what, and I’m drawn into this world of bizarre events that make me want to know more about what is happening.
There are some very frightening scenes in The Dead Game that reminded me of the SAW movies. On top of that, there’s some steamy romance happening that made the characters real with their attractions and interactions. The suspense with what was going to happen next kept me turning the pages.
If you are looking for a well-written, gripping vampire story, this is a must-read.
I give The Dead Game 4 out of 5 Stars.
About The Dead Game
Linda Bennett moves from New York to Florida to live a quieter life. Life is peaceful until the dead body washes up onshore. She learns that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are typical for the coastal town.
Linda and her friends receive an invitation to a party at End House, a deserted house overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The group arrives, but no one is there to greet them. The house has a sinister life of its own where horror follows their every step. Traps, illusions, and revolving rooms add to their growing fear. A bloody skeleton sleeps in an upstairs’ bedroom, and body parts fall from the chimney into the living room’s fireplace. Wild animals escape their cages in the basement. The young residents flee for their lives.
They embark on a harrowing journey, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the evil game.

About Susanne Leist
A career in writing has been a giant leap for me. Accustomed to the number-crunching field of budgeting and the hectic commodity markets, I left my first career and M.B.A. in Finance behind to pursue my dream. I do not regret my foray into literature for one moment. Fellow authors helped me make my way through the competitive field. I write every day and even tried my hand at poetry. Don’t listen if someone tells you it’s too late to try something different. It is never too late to follow your heart.
I am working on my fourth book. A seaside town in Maine provides the backdrop for murder, mystery, and romance. Will this book become a series? I don’t know yet. But I’m eager to begin the journey.
