Overview

Too dark for science and too evil for theology, but some secrets refuse to stay hidden.

Postgraduate student Harry Chesterton uncovers a trail of dark science that leads to the old monastery above the Welsh town of Aberystwyth.

With bodies beneath the cafe, residents oozing puss from puncture marks on their necks, and the disappearance of the University Chaplain, Chesterton's research into post-mortem consciousness is about to leap off the page.

The Memoirs of Harry Chesterton were found by the author in an attic flat in Eastbourne along with Chesterton's final letter before crossing over into the world of Thanatos.

Thanatos Rising constitutes the first volume of memoirs which recounts Chesterton's perilous investigations in Aberystwyth up until the time of his first disappearance.

This supernatural tale unfolds in the town of Aberystwyth as graduate student Harry Chesterton searches for the elusive Otto Blightley in his quest to substantiate his thesis research. He gets much more than he bargained for! This novella is compelling and fast-paced with unexpected twists and turns as Prior takes us beneath the seemingly harmless facade of Aberystwyth to reveal that not everything is as it seems. Prior's voice and tone is at once engaging, suspenseful and exciting. Although the somewhat liberal use of Welsh slang and academic-speak can sometimes leave the reader reaching for the dictionary, the writing is breathless, animated and fresh. As the story unfolds, it engages the reader very quickly. A very easy read and well-written, it is perhaps a bit too short. At times I craved more detail and explanation. Yet, despite the minimal character development, the story works extraordinarily well. Still, this tale could easily be fleshed out to a 200-300 paged novel. I would love to see what further magic Prior could work with that much additional space devoted to this story!
