5.0 out of 5 stars A Riveting Tale
By Gwendalyn A on December 5, 2020
This is a compelling spine tingling horror, with uniqueness that intertwines multiple genres. T. M. Tucker riveting tale that gives enough gore mixed with gaslamp fiction

Set in 18th century Jamaica and England, the story follows a young man Cyrus, who is half-caste, meaning of mixed nationality. His father is Joseph Cornishe, a plantation overseer and his mother is a slave girl named Lucy.
Privileged more than most, Cyrus is sent away to Savanna la Mar to learn a trade, he is apprenticed to a carpenter. He struggles under the bonds that are placed on him by those that hold power and sway. Being of mixed heritage, he neither excepted by those of color nor those that are caucasien.
The book is told in dual POV’s, that of Cyrus and Captain James Madden.
CaptainJames Madden narration is in a series of letters to his friend in England.
Maddern is on a dangerous mission in the West Indies.
Sent from Bristol England by Dr. Melchior Corll, He is tasked with searching out the black arts, and anything that is of the supernatural. Seeking all matter of darkness and ultimately the goal is to the link to immortality.

When a chance meeting with a girl named Rose who is six years apprenticeship under an elderly woman named Obi. Rose is gifted in the ways of Obeah Arts. Maddern with the aid of Rose may find what he has been searching for.
As the storyline unfolds Cyrus comes to learn that there is more to his bloodline than he could ever imagine.

T. M. Tucker delivers quite the atmospheric, entertaining, and unsettling read here that is high on suspense that had me totally invested in this story. This is one of those books that just pulls in and doesn’t let you go. Several key components makes this an extraordinary tale, the author uses traditional lycanthropy along with Obeah Arts. Obeah was used by the enslaved West Africans in the West Indies, and it is still practiced today in certain cultures. The writing is fluid and solid. The characters are well developed. Making this quite an enjoyable read, I am excited to read more works from this talented author.

“He knew well that real liberation came from the expansive on of the mind”
Cyrus

5.0 out of 5 stars Don’t read this review, read the book instead!
By Frank O’Connor on May 15, 2021
Although I generally prefer my historical homo-sapien-lupine fantasy-horror fiction to feature nothing stronger than a passable octoroon, Tucker's deft prose and cleanly elaborate plotting provide more than enough page turning lubricant to eliminate the squeaks of exquisitely specific, finely curated Victorian racist unease I'm struggling to overcome in my everyday life.

At turns surprising, amusing and thoughtful - I enjoyed myself too much to become tangled in self-spun webs of werewolf as race metaphor and ultimately fell in love with the believably barbiferous, bawdy, Barbary bombast and balefully brilliant bardsmanship bexhibited bin bis book.

A sail-filling voyage into a world of blood-curdling adventure and hair-clogged drains, backed up into a literary bath filled with visually evocative viscera and sanguine salience.
