For Zack Allen, it was supposed to be a chance to get away and relax. A weekend camping trip with a small group of friends seemed like the perfect distraction from a messy personal life, but as Zack and his friends made their way to the camping ground at Drifter’s Folly Memorial Park, he couldn’t shake the feeling something was terribly wrong.
Zack should have listened to his gut, because he and his friends aren’t the only ones in the forest. Someone else is watching—someone with dark intentions. And he wants to play a game…

Come back in time with the first ARISEN prequel and live through the beginning of the end of the world… (Can be read as a stand-alone novel, an introduction to the series, or at any point while reading the main series.)
Tucked away in a high-tech Tactical Operations Center, inside an isolated safehouse in the Horn of Africa, sits Agency analyst Zack Altringham. He is Kenyan-born, Princeton-educated, badly burnt-out – and condemned by his language and cultural skills to a lifetime of fighting America’s shadow counter-terror wars.
But when another mystery epidemic breaks out, and terrifyingly quickly reaches a tipping point, chaos descends – and Zack and his team (including two former Team Six SEALs) are trapped between the millstones of the sick and the dying on one side, and heavily armed militias on the other. Soon their “safe” house is in flames, and their only remaining option is to get in their up-armored SUV and try to escape the imploding gravity well of the city, to the safety of the American military base in Djibouti. But by then, will there be anywhere safe left on Earth to escape to?

Praise for the author’s first collection of horror stories, ‘Some Will Not Sleep: Selected Horrors:
“Great storytelling, but across a wider palate and range of styles than you might have expected, leading to some delightfully unexpected visions and hellscapes.” Gingernuts of Horror

“In ‘Some Will Not Sleep’ nothing is sacred, nothing is safe, and goodness me, if you like horror fiction you’re going to absolutely love every damn minute.” Pop Mythology

“It isn’t often that I read a short story collection and enjoy every entry, but with this book I did.” The Grim Reader

“Modern storytelling … and old school terror. Very scary, highly recommended.” Jonathan Maberry, NYT bestselling author

“Nevill’s talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned.” Kirkus

On the night of her twenty-ninth birthday, Edrea is brutally murdered. She awakens in her San Francisco studio as a bloodthirsty vampire with no memory of her death. Now undead and with newfound immortal powers, she fights to hold onto her humanity in the face of great darkness. In a seemingly interconnected reality, her guilt-stricken mortal sister, Rena, embarks on a dangerous quest in search of Edrea, whom is believed is merely “missing.”
As they follow their individual roads through life and the un-death, Edrea and Rena learn not only that their sisterly bond is stronger than they thought, but also that their family shares a dark secret that connects both of them to a mysterious quantum world.
This not so ordinary vampire tale will draw you into a journey of love, loss and self-discovery, and intrigue you with a scientific and philosophical theme that will keep you wondering until the end … and maybe even after that.
“Reise delivers a horror filled with satisfying moments of drama and suspense, as well as a sisterly bond that elevates the story to another level … the truth found in the relationship between the two sisters, a sanctuary from the darkness that surrounds them and a glimpse of the beauty that we find in trust, in acceptance, in each other.” –IndieReader
“Poetic and melancholic, the novel is a cross between True Blood and Interview with the Vampire. This is a coming-of-age vampire tale complete with mystery, romance and suspense that will surely entertain fans of the genre.” –The US Review Of Books
“From the dank and rugged northern California coastline to the vibrant San Francisco club scene, Leah Reise has created a vibrant and surrealistic world and populated it with relatable characters. Her rookie novel features a sisterly love story, darkly passionate vampires, and rivalries between ancient blood thirsty factions. Freshly undead, Edrea is smart, sexy, and fiercely protective of her baby sister, a girl who looks for and finds trouble behind every iron gate.” –City To Country Magazine
“What I love about this story, first, is the author’s ability with description. Reise has a gift for painting the scene without over-telling, and still offering enough detail to allow for vivid imagery. … second … that much of it takes place in Sonoma County locations. Reise doesn’t disappoint, taking her characters to Bodega Bay and Santa Rosa, though much of the story is set in San Francisco. … third … how large a role family plays in The Beauty in Darkness. There are definite themes that take place from both Edrea’s old and new life, which I’ll let you find out on your own to avoid any spoilers. All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys supernatural and vampire fantasy.” –The Press Democrat
