Today is my turn on the blog tour for this book.
A Chilling historical tale of lust, sorcery and devastating revenge
No female dares spurn the lecherous advances of Sir Henry Cruttendon, 17th Century England’s most reviled nobleman. To do so risks a retribution that would terrify the Devil himself.
But Elizabeth Fiennes is no ordinary woman, blessed with stunning beauty, intelligence and guile. Coming from an influential family, she believes she is safe.
What she doesn’t understand is that the Earl is determined to satisfy his lust and plans to use the wave of witch trials, fear and superstition sweeping the countryside to force her into his clutches.
And as he springs his malicious trap it triggers a chain of unholy events plunging hunter and prey into a maelstrom of deceit, terror and depravity – leaving them both staring into the face of true evil…
I’ve read this book in just one sitting. It is a gripping story which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Although short, this is a captivating story which is filled with jealousy, deceit and magic.
I have loved the setting for this book, Jay Raven has really created a clear picture with beautiful characters. There is a lot of potential for a follow up book from this one. I really hope Raven continues the story because I feel slightly invested now.
This differs from usual genre, but it has been a fantastic read which I have really enjoyed. I can’t wait to read more by this author.
Jay Raven is the author of Gothic chillers and historical horror reminding readers that the past is a dangerous place to venture, full of monsters and murderous men. He blames his fascination with vampires, witches and werewolves on the Hammer Horror films he watched as a teenager, but living in a creepy old house on the edge of a 500-acre wood may have something to do with it.
