Publication Date: September 13, 2023
Ebook Page count: 144 pages



At eighty-four years old, widower and award-winning geneticist Bernie Crenshaw has reached the end of his life. Bernie gifts his only grandson, eighteen-year-old Inglewood high school senior Nova, his multimillion-dollar property located in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills.
Years after Bernie's death, Nova hosts a wild twenty-first birthday party weekend filled with alcohol, music, and OnlyFans web cameras. After a handful of eerie encounters in the surrounding Los Angeles forest, Nova's friends allege that his grandpa's cabin is the burial ground for people who disappeared during their childhood. 

The birthday weekend shifts from celebration to terror as the friends piece together that the man Nova knew as "Popsi" matches the profile of one of the most notorious wanted criminals in Los Angeles-"L.A. Love Hunter." 

Will Nova preserve the Crenshaw family's sadistic legacy, or will he choose the rare and valuable gift of friendship?



Forty-five years ago 

Eric had managed to slip out of bed and past Lennox’s quarters unheard. Under his arm, he carried a carved wooden chess set. He had gotten it for his seventh birthday last week, which he had spent alone with Lennox in front of the television.
Bernie had been away speaking at the ‘World Changer’ conference in Seattle, one of the largest media events in the county to celebrate black people making a difference in their respective industries. Bernie had won an award for excellence in biological sciences, specifically genetic sequencing research.
Eric was awestruck that his father was the same man spotlighted in news articles and photographed with Jimmy Carter and famous celebrities.

Eric had watched his father on television while opening his Christmas presents, all picked out by Lennox with ‘From Dad’ forged on the tags. He could identify his father’s writing and signature within a fraction of a second, but still, he accepted these gifts with the tags written by Lennox.

“Look what Daddy got me,” Eric said to his mother, Madeline, who was busy laughing on the phone.

Madeline shut the door.

Eric stood disappointed and motionless.


5 stars!

Vivid imagery and spine-tingling storytelling!

Grandpa’s Cabin, a new young adult horror novel by Ross Victory, is the perfect spine-tingling story to celebrate Halloween! While told using multiple timelines and points of view, the storytelling is clean and crisp and easy to follow to get your scare on. With engaging main characters and dark, suspenseful foreshadowing, I was quickly immersed in this modern horror story. 

Its vivid imagery sets this book apart and above others of its kind. The author has created bold descriptive snapshots that will linger in the mind’s eye of the reader, punctuating the emotions of the events as they unfold. Although relatively short in length, the book packs a lot into its compact size. 

I recommend GRANDPA’S CABIN to readers of young adult horror who are looking for something above the ordinary.
