"I couldn't put the book down and finished it within 24 hours!"
--Anais Chartschenko, author of Bright Needles and other poetry collections"
This book was so powerful I finished it in two days. If it hadn't been for the need to sleep, I would've finished it in one."
--Michael J. Elliott, author of Portraits of Dread and other horror books
"The deceptively delicate backdrop of the Victorian Era beautifully enhances this psychological rollercoaster ride of a book. Christie Stratos has produced another amazing thriller."
--Jessica Halsey, author of Lupercalia
"Perhaps the thing I love most about this book, besides the beautiful writing (which is every bit as elegant as it was in Anatomy of a Darkened Heart) is the uncertainty and originality of the plot. So much of what we read has become so predictable, but Locke and Keye really bucks that trend by delivering a story that defies expectations and keeps you guessing to the end."
--Travis West, author of What Was Left
"...a novel I highly recommend."
--Jason Greensides, author of The Distant Sound of Violence
"Each line was so carefully crafted, each character so well chosen and placed, it was like clockwork. Each tick of the clock, each turn of the page, took you deeper into the machinations and down a darkening road. The road became so dark I had no clue where it would end!"
--Rebecca Jonesy, author of Moss and Clay
