From the Back Cover
Welcome to Everville…
On a mountain high above the city, a door stands open onto the shores of another world, and there's not a soul below who'll not be changed by that fact.
Phoebe Cobb is about to leave her old life as a doctor's receptionist and go looking for her lost lover in the dream-seas of that world…
Tesla Bombeck, who knows what horrors lurk on the other side of that door, must solve the mysteries of the city's past if she is to keep the horrors from crossing the threshold…
And Harry D'Amour, who has tracked the ultimate evil across America, will find it conjuring atrocities in the sunlit streets of Everville…
'One of modern fiction's premier metaphysicians'
'Clive Barker is so good that I am literally tongue-tied'

I get the impression that the person who typed up the Kindle edition did not understand English.
Amazon - please have someone proof-read Kindle books before publication, otherwise you end up publishing a bastardised version of the author's work.
The Gearys and the Barbarosas are two legendary families who are interconnected in some strange and mysterious way. For years they have co-existed, but the ties that bind them are drawing closer, exposing old enmities and risking the likelihood of mutual destruction for both.
Apart from `The Hellbound Heart' I've never really read anything by Barker. For whatever reason, the scale and scope of his tomes led me to believe they were closer to fantasy than horror (and fantasy is not a genre I am particularly fond of). But `Galilee' really did blow my hardened and cynical - yet still white and cotton - socks off, proving a compulsive page turner that made me wish trains were late and tubes were cancelled so I'd have extra time to cram in even more of it in. Okay, the ending may have been a bit more abrupt than I'd have liked (although I am somewhat mollified to find that a sequel has been promised), but this epic and far dreaming storytelling at its best.

Interesting back story that could have been explored more.
Left me wanting more but perhaps not enough to read another.
