Top Ten Tuesday – Titles that Feel Ominous

Today’s Topic:  Halloween Freebie

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I’m not much for scary in any form, especially in a story. So, for this week’s Halloween freebie, I decided to feature titles which sound ominous. Mainly because I love the word. Ominous. It sounds like exactly what it is. As do many of these titles.

The Curse of Misty Wayfair – This one takes place in a mental asylum and is next up on my TBR.

The Essence of Malice – The mysteries continue for Amory and Milo Ames when they investigate the death of famous parfumier.

The Wind Will Howl – Though this fierce sounding title doesn’t give any clue to the story within, I can tell you it’s an all or nothing type of case for our intrepid forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon.

Bear No Malice – I’m just going to borrow the tag line for this novel, because if it doesn’t intrigue you, then nothing I say will.  Great Expectations meets Grantchester in this story of love and lies, secrets and second chances, set in Edwardian England.

Capturing the Devil – If that title doesn’t scream “danger, Will Robinson, danger”, I don’t know what does. Can’t wait to read the finale to this fabulous series.

Hunting for Silence – Knowing Ambrose and Lilly as I do I can only imagine this fifth book in the series finds them running headlong after more dangerous adventure.

With this Curse – Curses are always ominous, aren’t they. But there is also a subdued but beautiful love story hidden in this gothic-lite tale.

Storm Rising – Ooh, another weather related title. I have yet to read this one, but I know I can count on Ronie Kendig to deliver another adreneline pumping, globe trotting military mystery.

Midnight on the River Grey – Love how this title twice hints at the dark brooding of this tale in using midnight and grey. It sounds rather haunting

Fanatically in Trouble – How much trouble is not just a little trouble, but a fanatic amount? Paisley, our former girl band-er turned event planner is about to find out when her nemesis returns and murder follows. (Don’t you just love the little skull and cross-bones on the cover?)

The Aftermath – Without any context, one has to wonder what terrible thing has happened? Having read this, I can tell you it involves both physical and personal trauma as well as a tornado.

The Darkest Summer – This just seems like an oxymoron which makes me wonder what terrible thing it alludes to. Not to mention it is billed as a re-telling of the myth of Hades and Persephone.
