After that night Bianca cannot remember the killer’s face.

Dark 2 and Point Horror Halloween:

Dark 2 was still another Scholastic Point Horror young adult thriller published in their line as a Point Horror Halloween special. It is now brought to you in time for Halloween by Cheops Books LLC.

In Dark 2 Bianca Winters thinks she has lost the love of her life, Doc Ernie McCollough. He used to be her medical advisor when she was recovering from the shock of witnessing a murder. Now she must try to cope all by herself while serving as the live-in nanny/permanent babysitter for St. Simons Island’s little heiress, Little Katie Shipley.

Suddenly there is a new man in town, Byron Kingsley, fresh from England. He begins to serve as her new medical advisor while she tries to recover her memory after the shock of the killing two years before while she was babysitting her charge. And he shows up just in time as the Island’s infamous criminal, Mike Fellini, tries to kidnap Little Katie and hold her for ransom.

But just as Bianca, Byron, Little Katie, and entourage are ready to flee to safety in England, a controversy breaks wide open about Byron Kingsley. Mysteries are associated with her new love as they lead to the horrendous, spine tingling conclusion to Dora Benley’s new young adult thriller.

If you liked Dark 2, you will enjoy other young adult thrillers by Dora Benley including Dark 3: Special Edition, Dark: A Trilogy, and Dark 1. You will also like Pool Party and The Surfer by Linda Cargill

Point Horror and Pool Party:

Another Scholastic Point Horror tale by Linda Cargill is Pool Party, published originally as part of the line. It is just perfect for Halloween.

Sharon’s party should have been perfect. The event of the year. After all, it was being held in the indoor/outdoor pool at her mother’s exclusive new hotel. It was definitely a party any senior would love to be invited to.

But somebody had invitations delivered before they were supposed to be mailed. And they went to all the people Sharon hardly knew. Even though things seemed kind of weird, Sharon decided to go with the flow. How bad could things be?

Sharon should never have believed that everything would be okay. She should have known that something was very, very wrong. Because now some of her guests might end up doing the dead man’s float — for real in this young adult murder thriller originally published by Scholastic USA in the Point Horror line. It was also published in a French edition, Lauberge Maudite. Now it is brought to you by Edward Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC.

Point Horror: The Surfer and Pool Party

As Halloween gets nearer and nearer, we think not only of Horror Week on Goodreads but of the old Scholastic Point Horror Line and its wonderfully scary books for teenagers and adults who like good, clean fun and big scares that make you scream. Cheops Books, LLC has republished several of these classic Point Horror titles by Linda Cargill such as The Surfer and Pool Party. Soon under her pen name, Dora Benley, we will be republishing Dark 1 and Dark 2, which were Point Horror titles in Great Britain.

Jessie had never seen her before. The beautiful girl who seemed to get a thrill out of surfing on a stormy sea. Maybe she’d been lucky in the past, but Jessie saw the girl’s luck run out. Jessie saw her drown.

So who’s the new girl in town? The one who doesn’t know who she is — or where she came from. The one who seems to cast a spell over everyone else she meets? Has the beautiful surfer come back from the dead? Or is it something else?

This young adult horror novel by Linda Cargill was originally published in the Scholastic USA Point Horror Line and the Scholastic UK Point Horror Line. It was also published by Cora Verlag in German as the Sea Witch. There was also an Italian edition. After selling 200,000 copies worldwide this bestselling novel is now available in a Kindle edition, published by Edward Ware Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC.

Nor does it matter what Edward’s American wife, Dora, says.

On November 1 Cheops Books LLC will publish Dark 1 by Dora Benley, the novel that was once part of the Scholastic Point Horror Series. Bianca Winters is babysitting Katie Shipley, the newborn heiress across the Street when one Friday night the lights go out and she hears the housekeeper screaming. She goes upstairs to confront an intruder and save the baby from her crib. The housekeeper falls to her death. From that night on Bianca cannot remember anything about that night, least of all the face of the murderer. But when her memory starts to come back two years later she gets the feeling he is waiting out there to kill her.
On November 8 Cheops Books LLC will publish Dark 2 by Dora Benley, the book that was once part of the Scholastic Point Horror Series. Bianca mourns for Doc, her medical advisor upon whom she came to depend until she found out that he was the murderer. But now there is a new face in town, Dr. Byron Kingsley from Great Britain. He seems to take Doc’s old place. But somebody is still after her and Little Katie. She must flee the country. But even that may not be good enough.
On November 15 Cheops Books LLC will publish Dark: A Trilogy, a collection of three young adult thriller novels in the Dark Series: Dark 1, Dark 2, and Dark 3: Special Edition. Teenager Bianca Winters had no idea what was in store for her in the next few years when she took on a babysitting assignment across the street with Little Katie Shipley. That night her whole life was to change forever as a killer roamed around in the dark upstairs. She had to save the baby while the housekeeper, Mrs. Ingersoll, fell to her death.
In the months that followed the murder, Bianca comes under the wing of her new medical advisor, Doc, who helps her recover from the horrible experience. She falls in love with the young man only to have doubt cast on his motives by circumstances that hint that he himself is the killer. When he goes on the run, she has to still believe in him somehow. How could she love a murderer?
Katie Shipley’s parents move to California and take Bianca with them as her live in babysitter. Bianca thinks that Doc is dead, killed trying to escape from the authorities. But then just as a strange older gentleman from England appears and tries to kidnap Little Katie, a young man who reminds her of the one she has lost materializes in her life again. He shows her what has really been going on all these years behind the scenes, why Mrs. Ingersoll was killed, and what the bad guys want with Little Katie. The trilogy ends with the biggest surprise ending of all time.

They’d better do something fast before Thomasina truly becomes Hitler’s daughter.
