“When a man of heavenly worth sins in Hell darkness shall reign on Earth”

A message from other side – an omen of the impending apocalypse. A message intended for one man and that man is the only one who can avert Armageddon, saving the soul of every man, woman and child on Earth – that man is Joe Costello. However, he is also the same man who could bring about the reign darkness.

Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy, Joe must battle his way through the nine circles of Hell – his escape being the only way to stop the end of the world. Not only will he face all manner of Hell’s demons, he will also face his own.

But he will not face this nightmare alone, as he is guided through each level by medium and ghost-whisperer, Layla Thorne.

Where the Darkness Reigns’ is the epic conclusion to ‘Within the Dark Places’ and ‘Where the Darkness Hides.’ If you haven’t read the first two books, here’s your chance…

There is a faceless danger lurking in the shadows — or are the shadows themselves the real threat…? Within the Dark Places is a rollercoaster ride of blood, sweat and tears, a novella that pays homage to horror movies of the late seventies and early eighties. The story follows a stag-party who find themselves stalked by a malevolent force that hides within the dark shadows of the forest. What the party hoped would be one hell of a night soon turns into a night from Hell…

“An enjoyable novella with believable characters and the right touch of goriness in the right places. I never knew what to expect next, which of course makes for a great story.”

Within the Dark Places is one of the more frightening books I have read this year and will certainly stay with me after I’ve closed the final page. Using the shadows as something to be feared is uncanny as it makes the familiar unfamiliar. Imagine a mixture between Harry Potter’s Dementors and those murderous shadows from that one episode of Doctor Who…”

“The author does a brilliant job of raising tension and ramping up the pace, leading to a genuinely creepy page-turner. The location is well realised and feels delightfully isolated, and the mysterious entity the plagues the protagonists from the shadows works perfectly.”

And then don’t miss the second book…

Just when you thought the thrill ride was over, prepare for round two! Where the Darkness Hides picks up immediately where Within the Dark Places ended — and, as tradition dictates for horror sequels, this time the body count is higher and the death scenes are even more brutal and terrifying.

The Shadowmen have returned. This time, they lay siege to Raven’s Peak police station, and amongst the hostages is Joe Costello. However, the Shadowmen are not the only threat; as Joe steps out of the shadows to do battle with the forces of evil once more, he finds something even more sinister lurking where the darkness hides.

“This book is like Assult on Precinct 13 with demons”

“A brilliant job the writer and I can’t wait to see what happens next because that’s one mother of a cliff hanger.”

“It came packed with terror, and didn’t disappoint. I would recommend this to avid readers, and horror fans alike. Don’t sleep on this one! In fact, never go to sleep again – who knows what’s out there, watching and waiting for its moment to be…”
