The book is well researched in Celtic history and beliefs and thoroughly enjoyable to read. The tale itself is back and forth, and written well enough to keep you puzzled through to the end.
I have now read 3 books by this author in the last 2 weeks; and having read these I look forward to reading many more of the authors books . . .
If you enjoy horror and strong images of 'destruction' this is well worth reading . . .
After a team of archaeologists uncover an ancient underground sacrificial chamber filled with childrens skulls, the novel turns into a combination of supernatural slasher (with a body coutn well into the double figures - there's a very bloody death every 30 pages or so!) and mystery whodunnit as archaeologist Kim, along with a police officer, try to figure out who is commiting the grotesque murders, and what connection it has to the Druid relics found in the underground chamber.
Very compulsive reading, I read the second half of the book in one go because I just couldn't put it down.
Every time an animal was mentioned I was dreading reading on as I knew what was about to happen to the poor thing, I did in fact nearly put the book down and stop reading it, if you are an animal lover then this is definitely not a book that you want to read.
Other than these sections which I felt almost distracted your attention from the good story line the rest of the book is a great read personally I don't think I have the stomach for another one of the same authors books in case it contains as much animal cruelty.

Nothing new in this book I'm afraid. The same description of death by mutilation every 3rd chapter or so. How many times words like flayed, riven, crimson, spurt etc. can you find. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Colinh09
