Loved the story and how dark it was. Supernatural horror is right up in my favorite genres and this fit perfectly. The only reason that it did not get 5 stars was because the ending felt rushed. I would have loved to see the book go longer and really delve into the world more.

I'm a lawyer, a gamer, a dreamer, an aspiring author, and a lowly fool.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy hiking, travel, adventurous eating, searching for new craft beers, and sampling exotic teas.

I write because I love to, and I h
