Dark City Media praises REVENGE

Another stellar review has come in for REVENGE! This time the deeply appreciated praise comes from Kelly M. Smith on DarkMedia.com. Here is an excerpt:

“REVENGE is horror fantasy unlike.anything you will ever read, as you learn that Shakespeare was on the right track when he asked Horatio is there was more than Heaven and Earth in his philosophy. The reader of this novel finds out there is a whole lot more: Purgatory, Hell and its Legions, the Archangels’ quarters just outside Heaven’s Gates and a mysterious King and Queen wanting to create a plane of existence all their own.”

Thank you so very much Kelly and DarkMedia.com! To read the full review CLICK HERE. You still have a chance to pick up a copy of REVENGE at half price via the Barking Rain Press website by using the code “BRP1YR” at checkout. This offer is good through the end of the month. You can also purchase an autographed edition here on Gabrielle Faust’s personal site by visiting the STORE section (CLICK HERE).

Thank you, again! XOV””VOX

Hell Notes praises REVENGE

A new review for REVENGE has been posted on HellNotes.com and it’s a stellar one! Thank you so much to Rick Amortis for his high praise of our work! We are deeply touched. :)

“Revenge is crafted with literary prose that differs dramatically from much of contemporary commercial horror fiction of today. It is evident many authors get swept away with appealing to the masses in simplistic form. From a marketing perspective it makes perfect sense. The more intrigued readers will be the more books will sell. It is refreshing to see an author embrace an artistic form throwing caution to the wind without compromising artistic integrity. Make no mistake about it however one will not breeze through Revenge in an afternoon or two like a Stephen King novel or perhaps Dean Koontz. Faust and Solomon’s prose beckons the imagination, savouring each passage of dialogue, action and exposition until you’re begging for more.”

REVENGE praised by the Tomb of Dark Delights

Another excellent review arrived this morning from the Tomb of Dark Delights!

“This is a lavishly written, deeply involving novel that references world legend, religion and lore plotted at breakneck speed, hooking the reader in the jaws of the narrative from page one.” — The Tomb of Dark Delights

Read the full review here: http://www.countgore.com/gore/tomb.htm

Just a minor detail to note, though, is that the plot summary they wrote is a bit wrong. Minor detail. ;) You can read the actual summary here on our home page: http://www.revengenovel.com/

Rue Morgue magazine reviews REVENGE

The April edition of Rue Morgue magazine hit stands yesterday. In it The Grim Reader column on page 49 reviewer Jessa Sobczuk called REVENGE a “clever and ambitious novel” and goes on to say, “Driven by an intricate and political plotline involving Marcus, his ex-girlfriend and a demonic love triangle, this novel is not a terrifying read but an inebriating descriptive journey into the nether regions of dark fantasy. Addictive as, er, hell.” We could not be happier to hear that REVENGE has the approval of Rue Morgue magazine! Thank you so much to Jessa Sobuczuk for the review!


DarkEva’s Dark Delights praises REVENGE

Another fabulous review of REVENGE has surfaced today! This one hails from the book review site Darkeva’s Dark Delights. Here is a small excerpt:

“I’ve never encountered a text so moving and philosophical that it gives you a whole different reading experience. In other words, when I was reading Revenge, I was so deeply immersed and engaged in the act of reading, that I forgot it was a novel. However, it’s also an incredibly thought-provoking novel written in a very luxurious style–luxurious not only in the sense that the descriptions are opulent and savoury, but also in the sense that one feels richer while reading the book.”

A great many thanks to Darkeva for this review! We are thrilled you loved the book. XOV””VOX
