New Release: THE HATCH

hatch-400x600dpi72THE HATCH
(stand-alone sequel to “Waiting Out Winter”)

Nick Kontis and his remaining family members have survived winter—have outlived the threat of deadly infected flies—and are heading toward presumed safety. They quickly find all exit points blocked, the perimeter burned, and learn the flies were only the beginning, as Mother Nature has stepped in to correct mankind’s mistakes.

Her weapon of choice: spiders.

With thick webs covering the spring landscape, and lack of any communication leaving them on their own to guess whether or not the spiders are as lethal as the flies they’re eating, they make a new plan. Fleeing in a new direction they run into another party of survivors. And what was once a breakdown of society becomes an exercise in rebuilding.

They’ll need to find common ground and bond with the others, before winter arrives again. Before the spiders declare victory…

Jenny Schultz wakes trapped in a pitch-black basement with no recollection of how she got there. With no
outside stimuli, Jenny naturally turns inward and
revisits her guilt-ridden past, desperate to figure out which wronged person would be angry enough, evil enough, to do this to her.

She must survive her own demons, and then time itself when she finds remnants of previous captives-a plate, a tooth, a bone. Scratched hashmarks in the stone walls around her, leave her to wonder what happens next.

What happens after six days?

“This is one HELL of macabre, psychological mystery.Owen has a terrifying talent for pushing the reader’s buttons, one right after another, until you’re trapped in the same lightless, inescapable cloak of HORROR as the main character. One of the most suspenseful books I’ve read in long time, and a stellar debut.”
~ Edward Lee, author of HOUSE INFERNAL, BRIDES OF THE IMPALER and more…

“Kelli Owen has pulled off a kind of dark magic with this book and done so with an assurance rarely seen in a first novel.  She’s made us care deeply about a flawed character completely alone in the dark, a scary one-character play peopled with everyone she’s close to…which is no mean feat for any magician.  And the ending packs a hell of a wallop.”
~Jack Ketchum, author of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, OFF SEASON, THE WOMAN and more…
