Brother Sebastian is halfway up a mountain in Vermont, hell-bent on interrogating an old woman in a
shack, when he gets the order to abandon his quest for personal vengeance. He has to find a missing
Inquisitor, or, more likely, his remains. He’s reluctant, to say the least. Not only will he have to stop
chasing the best potential lead he’s had in years, this job—his first solo mission—will mean setting foot
in the grubby black hole of Providence, Rhode Island. And, somehow, it only gets worse…
If he’d known he would end up ass deep in witches, werewolves, and ogres, and that this mission
would jeopardize not only his sanity but also his immortal soul, he never would’ve answered the damn
“This book has succulent flesh and strong bones beneath”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Liza O’Connor
Debut author Lincoln Farish has written a fabulous story. While he calls it dark urban fantasy, I’m inclined to call it true horror. The protagonist of the story, Sebastian, was once just an ordinary fellow before a demonic monkey killed his wife in a gruesome manner. Since normal people don’t believe in creatures of evil, Sebastian was headed to prison for his wife’s murder if not for a secret sect of catholic priests who give their lives to keep the evil creatures of earth in check so normal people can go about with their happy lives. They invite Sebastian to become one of them. Given the choice of a life of prison, or the chance to revenge his wife’s death, he becomes Brother Sebastian, Junior Inquisitor.
I’ll admit, I don’t normally read or watch horror stories. They give me nightmares. But once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. Be warned, when reading, the normal wall between you and horror may cease to protect you. Unlike many tales where you know they cannot happen, Farish has created these creatures and situations with such detail that you may start to believe he’s right and they do exist, and you have just been blind to the truth. And that is when they creep into your sleep and give you nightmares.
If you are easily terrorized and fall into a well-written book too deeply, it’s best you don’t read this.
But if you are heavy reader of horror and dark urban fantasy and enjoy being terrorized, then this may become your favorite series ever. Pounce upon it and dig your teeth into this extraordinary treat. You will find plenty of succulent flesh and strong bones beneath. This story is as real as you get.
