Witches — necromancers — inappropriate table manners.
On the surface, the three-hundred-year-old town of Loon Lake looks as calm as water, but in secret, clans of magic users clash like hungry sharks.
Shy, first-year student Tonya isn't privy to her family's darkest secrets, but when her college campus is overrun by a deadly eating epidemic, only she can resist the hidden, mind-controlling entity behind it. Meanwhile, Tonya’s new friends, Priya, an installation artist, and Digital Ninjas Drake and Zain, want to create the creepiest art installation Loon Lake Cemetery will ever know. Too bad what’s lurking in the graveyard is a lot scarier than Priya’s giant animatronic spiders.
Untrained and overmatched by powerful conspirators, Tonya will need to develop magical abilities she never knew she had. Can she uncover the mystery behind the epidemic and save her town?
Winner of the coveted Watty Award, supernatural thriller Feeding Frenzy is a witch's brew of intrigue with a dollop of comedy, a teaspoon of romance, and a pinch of horror.
