138 Pages
Paranormal Romance/Gothic Romance
Rating: 4 Cups

This is an unusual horror tale told from the perspective of a beautiful young woman who endures ghastly abuses and unimaginable loss yet still manages to cling to sanity even under the most insane conditions and circumstances.  At its core is the great, eternal power struggle featuring demons and fallen angels.  Underlying it all, though, is the question if redemption is never possible, what point is there in an eternal existence?  I loved the gothic tone that is carried throughout the entire book, flawlessly. The story flowed very well with seamless transitions and believable dialogues. There was nothing ethereal about the dark movie playing in the recesses of my imagination as I rapidly clicked through the pages on my kindle; the images that were invoked in my mind were substantive, very well-formed and often gruesome.  This is truly an outstanding horror tale that provokes deeper thought even as it scares you out of your wits.
