The Queen of Bones is one of those books that stay with you long after you finish that final page. My favourite book so far this year, Gregg Zimmerman has effectively destroyed civilisation as we know it with this riveting story. An extremely unlikely hero is presented here in young Sara Hill. She's one tough young woman, there's no denying that, but she is alone, the vulnerable age and gender of a 17 year old girl in a world overrun by lawless, violent "survivors" of the cataclysm which has struck the earth, and to make things more ridiculously hard for her, she is crippled with rheumatoid arthritis. But she has a secret that has kept her alive throughout the reoccurring 'sunthrobs', which assault the earth at regular intervals, killing anyone or anything unfortunate enough to be out in the open when they hit. Her naivete is consistent with that of a teenage girl, but at the same time, her tough 'take no s***' attitude is what gets her through the many trials and tribulations she has to face in her journey. Many times throughout the book, you forget she's just a young girl because the world Gregg has created here has made her grow up fast and way beyond her years. This 'secret', which you will have to discover for yourselves when you read this book, will be her salvation in a lot more ways than one. If you are a fan of dystopian, apocalyptic fiction and you bypass this book, rest assured, you are doing yourself a grave disservice. The Queen Of Bones is a book you NEED to read! Gregg Zimmerman is a powerful voice in the desolate realms of post apocalyptic Horror, and believe me, his is a name you will be hearing a lot more when this becomes a bestseller!
Eye love Horror. Werewolves in particular are my favourite creatures of the night-time world. Eye also love Metal...All types but mostly the darker, more extreme end of the spectrum. My involvement in the Black and Death Metal scene in Australia over the years is what first got me writing, in the form of lyrics for bands eye have been a part of. Now, long overdue, my writing has expanded to include short stories to chill your bones as well as my current baby, The Sacred Blade Of Profanity series, which begins with my debut novella, The Scarlett Curse. http://www.amazon.com/Scarlett-Curse-Sacred-Blade-Profanity/dp/1512323160/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1436116918&sr=8-2&keywords=The+Scarlett+Curse
The Scarlett Curse -
by Toneye Eyenot
The Scarlett Curse is book I in The Sacred Blade Of Profanity series, and my first foray into the published world of writing. An introductory novella of Dark Fantasy and Horror, it has been released through J. Ellington Ashton Press, and is available on Kindle and paperback on Amazon, and in paperback only, through Barnes & Noble, and Book Depository.
Another time…Place…Indeed, another reality akin to our own. The fates of many have fallen and will yet fall under the ethereal eye and insatiable bloodlust of The Sacred Blade Of Profanity. Scarlett’s centuries long struggle with The Blade Of Power begins to take its toll. Thousands have perished at the hands of Scarlett and The Sacred Blade, as will many thousands more in the centuries to follow…Or perhaps not?… An innocent child who unwittingly holds the secret to The Blades’ demise, just may change everything… But who will suffer most?
