"This is my first book by Ciana Stone. It is a well-written page-turner, full of unexpected twists, captivating, dark, and romantic. Did I mention chilling and INTENSE? Recommended Reading.."

The Boy in the Barn

"I have to say that every once in a while, I run across a book that leaves me speechless. This book is one of them. Ms. Stone proves once again that she can write in any genre and produce a winner. "

Their childhood was dominated by pain and fear. They escaped the darkness at first chance, but darkness is a beast that doesn't let go easily, and now it's found them. It will be a battle that will threaten their lives and souls. The time to fight is almost at hand and this time, they can't run.

*Warning for readers:  This book contains triggers of physical and psychological abuse, torture and murder., child abuse, child trafficking and sexual abuse. It is not for the faint of heart.  


Ciana began her adventures in publishing as a literary agent, a small press published author,  an art director for a small publisher and finally as an indie author and freelance book designer.

An avid reader, she has never called herself a fan of only one genre, although suspense thrillers do hold a special appeal.  


She's penned novels in romance, science fiction, paranormal  and sci-fi suspense thrillers and today is devoted to suspense thrillers, with a bit of a love story often included.

Behind the Rocking Horse

Book 1 in the Psychics & Serial Killers series


"This is a book that will stay with you long after the final word. Ciana Stone writes about a victim in a way that makes you wonder if she understands this level of fear.  And the monster who haunts the lives of the characters is shockingly real.  A brilliant tale you won't want to put down,  but definitely not for the faint of heard."

                                                      - Candid Book Reviews

She was seven when the monster came and when he left that night, he took with him Isabelle's happiness, sense of security and belief in a God who would protect little children.  He left her with a promise, one that she could never forget and one that filled her with terror.

"We're not done, you and I.  You're my special girl, Isabelle.  I'll be back for you."

For twenty-five years, she's feared that promise and his whispers in her mind.  She's run from it, tried to deny it, looked for ways to forget or overcome it, and now she's ready to admit that there's only one way to reclaim her life.

Destroy the monster.  Or die trying.
