"Freaking. Amazing. This book hooked me immediately and never let go. This is a story of darkness and revenge broken into two parts. Part One felt like the movie Memento and Part Two felt like the movie Scarface. Incredible." --Nico Bell, Sci-Fi & Scary
is a blood-feuled bullet train roaring through the criminal underworld. It's a manic story of loss and revenge that starts at a sprint and never slows down." -- John C. Foster, author of Mister White
"Magic! Manifest Recall
is an uppercut of a novella that is sure to loosen a few teeth." --Adrian Shotbolt, The Grim Reader Reviews
grabs you by the scruff of the neck from word one and doesn't let go. It's fast paced, bad people doing bad things to other bad people. I gobbled it down in two nights. You should, too. Highly recommended!" -- John F.D. Taff, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of The End in All Beginnings
is the literary equivalent of a vicious kick in the nether regions. It s powerfully written and will knock the stuffing out of the most hardened horror freak." --Tony Jones, Gingernuts of Horror
