Note: This book contains graphic violence, illicit drug use, non-consensual extreme sex, and potentially offensive material given the religious references.

In the drug lord controlled area know as “The Harbor”, biblical figures have been reincarnated. Immanuel, also known as El Cristo (Christ) is a young woman who has come to save those enslaved by an extremely addictive drug. She changes the lives of those she encounters – such as Pedro (Peter). However, her success negatively impacts drug traff

Truthfully, I’m not the hugest fan of vampire fiction. It’s not that I don’t like vampires..it’s because there is so much trash that passes for vampire fiction nowadays (i.e. Twilight, etc). So I was pleasantly surprised when I had the chance to read this book.

It’s sort of like Donald Goines writing a horror novel. It’s similar to Goines because of the detailed use of the urban/drug culture. The author seems knowledgeable in the subject unlike many horror/crime authors who stick drugs into the

Overall, I found this to be a great, rather grizzly book with a fine grasp of horror, modern culture and even a certain reverence. Rage blatantly gawks at the darker side of our modern world and draws certain biblical parallels...using vampires. He adeptly mixes our current youth venacular with graphic, brutal horror imagery, a respectable dark poetic prose and a decisive intelligence. This is an author I'd like to see more of. The violence, and sex references are raw, explicit and he just holds ...more

Sep 19, 2010 Nick Cato 'The Place in Between" review:

The three stories presented here are tied to an apocalyptic underground community known as The Harbor (two take place post, while the title tale goes down before all hell breaks loose).

In 'Blood and Bubblegum,' we're introduced to some seriously strange characters who are involved in an ever-growing organic narcotics trade, including protagonist
