Review published on November 23, 2017.
I did really enjoy this book, even though I read it out of turn. It marries together different genres successfully, horror, mystery and the occult, all while the First World War is happening. The writing is superb and well researched and the story greatly told.
I really don’t want want to give anything away, as I know how it spoils it for me. Suffice to say, the story involve the Vatican, corruption, strong characters, anti-heroes, intrigue and blood!!!
Just please read it, the trilogy won’t disappoint.
