Editorial Reviews

Cherie Priest
"...the themes are big and the peril is honestly engaging. By and large this is a wonderful specimen of the genre-well worth reading under the covers with a flashlight"
C.S. Pothitt
"Using Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles and Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights as a starting point, and tales of the Dartmoor beast, which still make it into British newspapers, as inspiration, Burke crafted a moody, thrilling tale set in a foggy, stark land riddled with quicksand and bogs."
Don D'Ammassa
"Burke evokes the creepy atmosphere beautifully and the gory scenes are done with as much taste as is possible under the circumstances. Grady is an interesting protagonist whose adventures should capture the attention of most readers who enjoy a touch of the grotesque. I've enjoyed several of the author's short stories in the past and am happy to say that he is no slouch at novel length either."
Gav ****
"Very atmospheric, great characters, fabulous old fashioned classic Hammer Horror style English gothica at it’s best, and above all else, easily the best new horror novel I’ve had the pleasure of reading in ages."
