I finally got around to reading this book that has languished on my TBR. And I loved it!
About the Book
Three short stories inspired by Dante’s Inferno, linked by a book of human skin passed down through generations. On the edge of horror, thriller and the occult.
Sins of the Flesh: When the tortured and mutilated corpse of a wealthy author is discovered, the police officer sent to investigate finds a curious diary amongst the occult objects at the scene. Will he uncover the author’s secret at the ruined chapel, and can he pay the price that it demands?
Sins of Treachery: On the death of their Grandfather, twin brothers Simon and Gestas are left a map covered in alchemical symbols that could lead them to great wealth and power. But they find more than they expected in the frozen wastes of the Arctic north …
Sins of Violence: In a brutal post-apocalyptic world, a young girl is about to be taken to The Minotaur for a Blessing that will end her innocence. Can her sister gain access to the fortified city of Dis in time to stop the ritual and avenge her own lost youth?
Includes the Prologue of Desecration, a dark crime thriller, at the end of the book.
Check it out on Goodreads.
Love the cover!
A real page-turner that I couldn’t put down. The imagery, the symbolism and the echoes of what the world could so easily turn into made this a thrilling read (that I probably shouldn’t have read before bedtime…).
Brilliantly crafted. I would have liked to read more than just three interlinking stories, though.
Trigger warning: violence, gore, death, allusions to rape, murder
*I received an ARC from the author and this is my honest opinion.
