Editorial Reviews

Review

"Psychologically compelling and full of depth, intelligent, beautifully written, literary but easily accessible, Anatomy of a Darkened Heart may well begin a new era of dark Victorian-era fiction." - Jason Greensides, author of The Distant Sound of Violence

"The attention to detail in this book must be highlighted. Textures, symbolism, and words. Every word is placed where it has to be placed and sometimes a sentence can make you shiver or gasp." - J.D. Estrada, author of Only Human and many other works

"Christie Stratos' writing is fantastic, it pokes and prods the psychological buttons of the reader to illicit the emotions felt by the characters. " - The Scary Reviews

"I was absolutely and totally addicted to this book from the very first sentence to the last. Whenever I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it and dying to know what was going to happen." - Amie Irene Winters, author of Strange Luck
