At this rate, you’ll OD on sugar and sleep through October 31st!!! It means missing all the good reading you’ve won and our Daily Book Giveaway!
Yup, it’s that time again and today we have a zombie apocalypse!!! The dystopian future (what the heck does “dystopian” mean anyhow?) and human beings (nope, I don’t know any of those either!) are born without souls!!! You know, those things that make us cry when watching chick flicks and caption kitty pictures?!!! And why am I trying to explain this to you, oh, eater of brains and gummy worms?!!! Like you’d know anything about those things you suck out of people!!!! Anyway, this is the universe dreamed up by the awesome bestselling writer CEGE SMITH in TWISTED SOULS series!!! And the fantastic CEGE is offering THREE BOX SETS to you unworthy disciples!!! Fancy that!!! That’s FOUR (as in FOUR) stories to scare the crap out of you!!!!
Believe you me, it took some impressive footwork to get CEGE to kick in on the goods!!! In addition to writing about zombies, she rules over the Forest of Zombies!!!! Yes, I had to trek through the haunted woods and, man, was I glad I put in all that cardio at the local gym!!! I was doing fine until the heel on my Louboutins got stuck in the marsh!!! Why is there marshland, anyway? Marshmallows, sure!!! But actual land made out of mush?!!!! Completely unnecessary and it ruined a perfectly good pair of stiletto heels!!! Fortunately, CEGE heard my screams for help before any real damage was done!!! I’d brought along some Halloween treats for myself, but doled them out to the zombified undead to keep them distracted from human flesh!!! Damn, those guys loved M&Ms!!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Everyone loves a good origin tale. Cege's started when she was eight years old. She snuck out of bed late one night and into the living room to watch TV. Flipping through stations with the volume turned down low, she came across a rerun of a movie called The Exorcist. She was terrified yet mesmerized.
Cege wasn't unfamiliar with the idea of the battle between good and evil. She attended Catholic school in a small town in rural Wisconsin, and at the time knew the 'age appropriate' stories from the Bible. Nothing in those stories prepared her for the visual onslaught of watching the battle between the priests and the demon for the soul of the young Linda Blair. Cege was deeply disturbed by the movie, but nonetheless a seed was planted that night. That seed grew into a rampant fascination with all things supernatural.
Sleepovers turned into B-rated horror film marathons. Her library card was used to bring home piles of books about ghosts and vampires. She still isn't quite sure who she loved first, Stephen King or Freddy Krueger. By the time she was twelve, Cege took a turn at penning her own spooky tales. That love of things that go bump in the night and scare you to death has only grown stronger throughout the years.
The paranormal and supernatural take center stage in all of Cege's stories. Over the years, she has crafted her own origin stories about vampires (the Bloodtruth series), zombies (the Twisted Souls series), and ghosts, angels, and demons (the Shadows series). She's also taken on the folklore around the Fountain of Youth (the Immortal End series beginning with Ageless). There is something for every reader of the paranormal in Cege's books.

The complete Twisted Souls series is available in this box set collection:
The Soul Ripper (Twisted Souls #1)
In a post-apocalyptic world known as the Territory of Malm, infants are born soulless. With a hideous appearance and unquenchable hunger, they are kept out of sight until they are Chosen.
Long ago, the residents of Malm placed their faith in the Office of Souls to lead them and keep them safe after the human race was almost destroyed in the time known only as "Before". But someone long forgotten has other plans, and that means unleashing unspeakable evil into their world.
Soul Implantation Day 3675 starts out like any other, and follows the paths of six people who are destined to meet in the courtyard of the Fountain of Souls. They bear witness to a soul implantation ceremony gone terribly awry.
Not all of them will survive, and some will suffer a fate far worse than death.
*This novella was previously released under the title "The Soul Garden".*
Twisted Souls (Twisted Souls #2)
The epic collision of good and evil that began in The Soul Ripper (Twisted Souls #1)
continues in Twisted Souls (Twisted Souls #2), the second installment of Cege Smith's Twisted Soul series...
The survivors of Soul Implantation Day 3675 went into hiding as the rest of the Territory of Malm was ravaged by an old foe hell-bent on total domination of their world. As the focus settles on the last untouched outpost of humanity, Samuel, the new Head Master of the nearly annihilated Office of Souls, knows that something must be done in order to bring the human race back from the
brink of total extinction.
Samuel's secret weapon is Cameron, the last recipient of a soul from the Fountain of Souls. Cameron's destiny has set her on a path to face down the ultimate evil and hopefully save mankind. Time is against them as the survivors discover that nowhere is safe from their enemy's reach, and they must rejoin the outside world and fight before it is too late.
Soul Cycle (Twisted Souls #3)
The line between good and evil blurs even further in Soul Cycle (Twisted Souls #3), the
third installment of the Twisted Souls saga...
Cameron, Samuel, and Malcolm survived the trap in the Office of Souls compound. Their goal is to reach Outpost Alanstown where they know they will have to confront their enemy. But as their journey begins, an encounter with a group of bloodthirsty Soulless Ones separates the group on the outskirts of West End, the capital city of the Territory of Malm.
In the meantime, in Outpost Alanstown, Chim retrieves Marius from the edges of madness. Marius finds himself in the difficult position of helping Chim in order to help himself.
What no one knows is that someone has been behind the scenes pulling the strings like a skilled puppet master, and that person is someone they never expected.
Answers from the past must be found before Cameron and Samuel's true destinies can be revealed. The journey to the final battle is coming, but who will be there still remains a mystery.
A Soul to Settle (Twisted Souls #4)
A new evil rises as Samuel and Cameron race toward to Outpost Alanstown in the thrilling conclusion of the Twisted Souls series...
Facing a moral dilemma, Samuel realizes that everything he believed was right is wrong. He is confronted with the devastating truth that to save the Territory of Malm, he must first remove the stain of the treacherous legacy of the one who ruled before him.
Cameron teeters on the cusp of discovering her purpose. She's been a pawn in a game of control that spans since the time of Before. How that impacts her role in the upcoming battle between good and evil remains shrouded in mystery.
In Outpost Alanstown, Marius has embraced the darker side of his nature. Conscience be damned, he finds a reason to stand against Cameron and Samuel when they come because he can't see any alternative.
The time for the final battle has arrived.
