Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Gothic Horror in a traditional sense is about transformation. It is not the horror of gore and gristle, but rather the unstoppable descent into madness or evil. The Decline and Fall of Rowland Graves is such a tale, and I wrote it to satisfy a need for understanding.

Rowland Graves appears as the villainous surgeon in The Devil's Luck, but I refuse to believe anyone is just a monster in a vacuum. How does a character like Graves--one so repulsive I had regular readers tell me they almost put The Devil's Luck down--become the person he is? He didn't come out of the womb that way. What happened?

So this story filled in the details for me as to how Rowland became the man he was when we find him at the beginning of The Devil's Luck. Chronologically, it's a prequel by about 25 years, though I've listed it as Book 2 in the series. I feel it's such a tragic note to open on, readers might assume all my work is as harrowing as this and not bother with the rest when, in fact, Rowland Graves might be the darkest tale I've put to paper. Though there is romance in it, this is a story for the morbidly curious, not for happy endings.

About the Author

Eris writes subversive romance for people who hate romance novels. She writes fiction in whatever genre suits the tale that needs telling: historical, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, or anything that bends a little askew from expectations. Her stories are the stomping grounds for bada** heroines, untamable alphas, a spectrum of sexuality and a serious disregard for convention. Sometimes light and humorous, often dark and intense, if you’re looking for a break from reality, Eris writes for you. When she’s not staying up until the wee hours writing, Eris also likes to read, annoy her cats and husband, and obsess about writing some more.
