In the summer of 1986, Billy Collins is sent to his own personal Hell - summer camp. The remote Camp Genesis offers desperate parents a place to "straighten" out their gay teenagers with the help of the puritanical Katherine Creevey.
Besides the typical horsing around, campfire tales and summer games, the Genesis program forces gay and questioning teens into humiliating gender-based lessons. While Billy wants nothing more than to escape Camp Genesis, he can't help worrying that something even more sinister is hiding just out of sight.
Unknown to Billy, two campers were murdered three years ago. Just days after Billy and the new campers arrive, people start to go missing, and it's up to Billy and his new friend Jem to find out what's really going on. Is a maniac on the loose? Is history repeating itself? One thing's for sure - at Camp Genesis, you have to fight to survive...

About the Authors:
Elliot Arthur Cross: Hailing from New England, Elliot has always been a horror fan, be it film, books, or campfire tales. Some favorites include Scream, Sleepaway Camp and any cheesy horror anthology (why is it that some of the most fun stories are the shortest?). When he’s not writing horror (or watching Netflix), Elliot works in other genres like mystery, adult, and the supernatural.
Joshua Winning: Based in London, UK, Joshua spent his teenage years watching films he probably shouldn’t have and reading things his parents would deeply disapprove of. He often stayed up watching scare flicks on late-night TV and was transfixed by some of the best horror films of the 1980s (The Howling, Night Of The Creeps) as well as some of the worst (Howling II… What was that all about?). Joshua’s debut novel, dark fantasy Sentinel, was published by Peridot Press in 2014.

This was a great read! It was actually too quick that it left me wanting more or at least the next book in the series. This is the first book I have read by Elliot Arthur Cross and Joshua Winning but it wont be the last that is for sure! This book jumps right into the action in the first chapter. It reminded me of an 80's/early 90's horror flick, like Jason. It was a little different with the kids going to a "gay" camp to be "cured". One by one campers start to disappear and then they are found dead. It was scary, not too gruesome but definitely had me on the edge of my seat. Makes me wonder why I steered away from reading horror books lately. It was well written and the character development was great. I found you started to get to know a character or like them and than bam they are gone. I really never would have guessed the ending.
I give this a book a 5 out of 5 stars for being a edge of the seat, 80's horror film type read!
