Sundial - Catriona Ward 

You can't escape what's in your blood... All Rob wanted was a normal life. She almost got it, too: a husband, two kids, a nice house in the suburbs. Far from her childhood home, Sundial, hidden deep in the wild Mojave Desert. But beneath the veneer, Rob is terrified for her oldest daughter, Callie, who collects tiny bones and whispers to imaginary friends. Rob sees a darkness in Callie, one that reminds her too much of the family she left behind. Running from her past has led her directly back to it--what's buried at Sundial could never stay a secret forever, and Rob must risk one last trip out there to protect her family, and her future.

Motherthing - Ainslie Hoggarth

Abby Lamb has done it. She's found the Great Good in her husband Ralph, and together they will start a family and put all the darkness in her childhood to rest. But then the Lambs move in with Ralph's mother Laura, whose depression has made it impossible for her to live on her own. She's venomous and cruel, especially to Abby, who has a complicated understanding of motherhood given the way her own (now estranged) mother raised her. When Laura takes her own life, her ghost starts to haunt Abby and Ralph in very different ways. Ralph is plunged into depression, and Abby is being terrorized by a force intent on taking everything she loves away from her. With everything on the line, Abby must make the ultimate sacrifice in order to prove her adoration to Ralph and break Laura's hold on the family for good.

The Ravenous Dead - Darcy Coates 

When Keira woke in a strange forest, she remembered only two things: she can see ghosts, and frightening, mask-wearing men were hunting her. She thought she would be forever haunted, but now, with the help of unexpected new allies, she's coming into her own. Yet the dead still whisper to Keira at night, and soon she'll be faced with an insatiable darkness-a powerful ghost fueled by rage and a dreadful, dangerous hunger that can never be quenched



The Big Dark Sky - Dean Koontz

Drawn to a Montana homestead and to a strange childhood companion she'd long forgotten, Joanna Chase and others converge on this remote ranch where a madman lurks with a vision to save the future through murder, forcing them all to come together to save themselves--and humanity.
