Overview

When Marcus Glenfield committed suicide, he took his place among the Legions of Hell as the Demon of Regret. When he learns that the Prince of Wickedness, Belial, is planning to take his former fiancé, Brenda, as his consort, Marcus's newfound belief in a second chance is quickly shattered in a fit of all too human rage.

Incensed by the new demon's disrespectful hostility, Belial plunges Marcus into the deepest pits of Hell. But Lucifer has other plans for Marcus. For in the tormented lands of Purgatory, a strange and powerful uprising has gathered to form a new plane of existence--one that would break the ancient caste system of Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, Limbo and Earth, thwarting both God and Satan's permanency within the universe. Not only have these brash metaphysical pirates kidnapped the powerful child born of Brenda and Belial's union, they have also guided Marcus out of the prisons of Hell to their new realm.

When they promise Marcus freedom in return for his help, he realizes that he will have to choose a side. But can he find one that he can truly believe in?

"REVENGE is the perfect horror fantasy! It is beautifully written & amazingly evil." -- Michael Vampire, Vampires Everywhere!

"REVENGE is horror fantasy at its very best: magical, truly frightening, lyrical and sewn-through with a thread of hope. Gabrielle Faust & Solomon Schneider are two of the most exciting horror writers in the business." -- Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author, DUST & DECAY and DEAD OF NIGHT

Magazine - Rue Morgue
This clever and ambitious novel follows Marcus Glenfield who, after committing suicide, takes a grunt's position in Hell, harvesting souls for Lucifer as the Demon of Regret. Driven by an intricate and political plot line involving Marcus, his ex-girlfriend and a demonic love triangle, this novel is not a terrifying read but an inebriating, descriptive journey into the nether regions of dark fantasy. Addictive as, er, hell.

Meet the Author

Gabrielle Faust’s diverse talents have allowed her to pursue an eclectic career as an illustrator, speculative fiction author, and leading industry entertainment critic. Her first published collection of poetry, Before Icarus, After Achilles, was released in 2005. In 2008, Faust released From Deep Within the Earth, the first book from her post-apocalyptic vampire trilogy, Eternal Vigilance. In October of 2008, Gabrielle was the Guest of Honor at the “Queen of the Damned” Vampire Ball in New Orleans, an annual event produced by the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Fan Club. The second book in the trilogy, The Death of Illusions, was released in 2009, and Ms. Faust appeared as a Special Guest at the Endless Night Festival alongside author Charlaine Harris, where she was dubbed “New Orleans Vampire Royalty” at the “Tru Blood & Gold” Vampire Ball. Gabrielle’s second collection of poetry, Crossroads, was also released in 2009. In 2010, the third novel in the trilogy, Bound in Blood, was released and Ms. Faust appeared as a Special Author Guest at the “Memnoch: The Resurrection” Vampire Ball, as well as the New Orleans UnDeadCon.

Solomon Schneider is a neo-folk singer/songwriter and co-author of the novel Revenge with Gabrielle Faust. Born in Santa Barbara, California and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Schneider is obsessed with the concept of adventure and the odd manifestations of time and space it gives rise to. He is a philosopher with Ph.D. level training who left academia during the dissertation process, believing that his area of research had to be explored artistically rather than theoretically. At the end of 2010, he released his first album of adventure songs, Visceraline, and moved into his Buick Roadmaster station wagon to pursue a life of full-time touring. He joined forces with nationally acclaimed road-warrior poet Seth Walker, and, as a multi-instrumentalist, became a noteworthy presence on the spoken word scene. Playing cello, banjo and guitar, Solomon has been booked as a featured performer at Da Poetry Lounge in Los Angeles, The Green Mill in Chicago, the Nuyorican in New York City and Yale University. Schneider also works as a composer, arranger and producer.

A solid supernatural thriller with insights into action / consequence dynamics and fundamental interconnectedness of all things. Which it say it does a fine job of interweaving multiple sub stories into a whole to give the reader not only a panoramic view into the world created but many things to think about. In short a book you will only need to read once to get it but will want to read again and again.
