5 Exciting Upcoming Horror Books

The Fantasy Review‘s List of 5 Exciting Upcoming Horror Books in the Next Few Months.

Holly by Stephen King

Release Date: September 5

From the blurb:

Stephen King’s HOLLY marks the triumphant return of beloved King character Holly Gibney. Readers have witnessed Holly’s gradual transformation from a shy (but also brave and ethical) recluse in Mr Mercedes to Bill Hodges’s partner in Finders Keepers to a full-fledged, smart, and occasionally tough private detective in The Outsider. In King’s new novel, Holly is on her own, and up against a pair of unimaginably depraved and brilliantly disguised adversaries.

Black Sheep by Rachel Harrison

Release Date: September 19 (US) & January 23 (UK)

From the blurb:

Nobody has a “normal” family; but Vesper Wright’s is truly… something else. Vesper left home at eighteen and never looked back―mostly because she was told that leaving the staunchly religious community she grew up in meant she couldn’t return. But then an envelope arrives on her doorstep.

Rouge by Mona Awad

Release Date: September 12

From the blurb:

For as long as she can remember, Belle has been insidiously obsessed with her skin and skincare videos. When her estranged mother Noelle mysteriously dies, Belle finds herself back in Southern California, dealing with her mother’s considerable debts and grappling with lingering questions about her death.
