Long-time readers of dark historical fantasy will appreciate the weaving together of mythology, occult, and religion, while younger readers and fans of HBO dramas, like True Blood, or urban fantasy, will be drawn to the twisted imagination, graphic action, and romantic tension.
A vampire novel with actual bite. ~The Kirkus Reviews
…A perfect blend of mystery, magic and myth. A grown-up Grimm’s fairy tale…emphasis on grim. ~Amazon Review
With Mr. Gavin’s video-game pedigree, I was expecting something aimed squarely at the 18-25 year old fanboy contingent; what I got in The Darkening Dream was something wholly unexpected: A period novel with a female protagonist, a crash-course on Judaism in the colonial years, and multi-layered series of plot arcs featuring a crazy cast of natural and supernatural characters populating 18th Century Colonial America. ~Amazon Review
About The Darkening Dream
1913, Salem, Massachusetts – Sarah Engelmann’s life is full of friends, books, and avoiding the pressure to choose a husband, until an ominous vision and the haunting call of an otherworldly trumpet shake her. When she stumbles across a gruesome corpse, she fears that her vision was more of a premonition. And when she sees the murdered boy moving through the crowd at an amusement park, Sarah is thrust into a dark battle she does not understand.
