“…The writing is sublime, both ancient in feel but very understandable, and the richness of the characters leaps off the page.
There are genuine disturbing moments, the kind of dread that settles softly and you find yourself thinking about afterwards; the kind that buries deep. Much like the titular grimoire, the effect of which whispers through these tales, there are dark, compelling delights at work here.
I’ll finish with how fresh this collection feels, despite its historical settings, and one that makes you want to start over as you turn the last page, to discover the clues you might have missed.
One of my favourite reads of 2021!”
