Editorial Reviews


Amazing. Disturbing. Haunting. This is a book that I won't easily or soon forget. It and the author Matthew Williams has branded a part of my psyche with his dark and gripping and evocative tale unlike anything I've read.
It wasn't predictable,and I appreciated the originality, especially for being in a genre where so many books seem the same. This one had a fresh, distinctive flavor to it and very cool myth/legend behind the "what" the evil entity exactly is and how it came to be about.
The ending is freaking insane and leaves me very unsettled. And that's what made this book end perfectly! I'd definitely be interested in reading more from this talented author to see what other terrifying tricks he has up his sleeve. Highly recommend.

(5 stars) Marcella Gonzales--Goodreads

The writing is so good...strong and passionate and intelligent narrative that makes you really believe in the story and the characters. And I'm not easily impressed. Definitely shocked me on more than one occasion. And I'm not easily shocked.
Overall the plot had more depth and complexity than I anticipated, and the ending truly shocked me.Certainly worth a read, and I'm interested in reading more from Williams in the near future.

(4.5 stars) John Goldman--Barnes & Noble

Haunting and engrossing, this tale of centuries-old horror as told by author Matthew Williams will have you on the edge of your seat, hiding beneath the covers, and leave you wanting more.
Most of the horror I read feels contrived and frankly, not all that scary. But this book managed to really get inside my head and freak me out! The writing was top-quality - a good amount of details and lyrical prose that added to the scenery without weighing it down any.

(4 stars) Eliza Brown--Goodreads

Williams has a strong talent for really putting us inside the story and giving really complex and interesting history/backstory and events, and his attention to character detail.  The writing was great.The strong word choice and fluid prose makes it a very easy book to lose yourself in.  A great book that will stay with me for a long time. Can see fans of horror loving this one.
(5 stars) Cam Jones --Indie Book Reviewers

Crazy, twisted, paranormal mystery/thriller that will appeal to fans of the horror genre.

(4 stars) Laura Clarke--Barnes & Noble

There is so much mystery and intrigue and 'what the heck is happening here' that you can't help but want to keep reading more and more. At first it seems like it may just be a ghost story or a demon possession, but it's way more than that, and the whole story behind it is very cool and well-thought out.
Williams captures the creepy vibe of the setting and his subjects perfectly.

(4.5 stars) Layla Messing--Indie Book Reviewers

It is downright creepy and freaky and at times quite disturbing. So if you are into that ((which I totally am!)) then this is the book for you!
The way he uses language to create emotion and describe scenery is impressive, and the characters are believable and well developed with several interesting transitions.
(4 stars) Steph Coleman--Goodreads
