Blake’s unique voice, and, more importantly, his ability to transcend the “norm” finds the reader in familiar or unfamiliar, territory: themselves. Few can elicit such emotions or pluck the horror straight from our once red, but now darkened heart. Careful, readers, the horrors are far and away, and some are waiting for us to look in the mirror. A stellar debut from a wordsmith who’s career is destined to be a long one.
