Dark secrets shared …
Dark spells invoked …
Death desired and
death defied …

This gothic exploration of human capacity for evil and the purpose of existence should be read to an alternative music soundtrack.

by Andrew Sneddon

A 5-star rating and review from a reader on

"Not for the fainthearted

This book is POWERFUL - two unflinchingly honest tales that build upon the raw strength of human endurance. Sneddon has a way of grabbing his words and punching them into shape. Very impressive. I look forward to seeing more from him." - EBAB, 15 April 2013.
