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?
Visions abound, etched deep within our psyches. Depictions of Hell that have, over the centuries of conditioning and the dominant influence of Christianity in western culture and history, taught us from the youngest age to fear a wrathful god. To be cast for an eternity into a fiery torment without relief or salvation is one of the greatest horror stories ever told. But, how many of us know of Xibalba, the Hell of the Mayan culture? Or of Ah-Puch, the Mayan god of Death who presides over all who find themselves forever in this place? The Christian depictions of Hell pale in comparison, as you will find within the pages of this book. Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason take you on a terrifying guided tour of Xibalba. The rulers and denizens of this realm of endless, unrelenting Death have been resurrected by these two necromantic authors with such deeply disturbing clarity, that you are there, suffering the agonising torments of Dennis, Kelly, Alissa, Tyler, and their teacher Wes as they set out to meet with Wes’s mentor of archaeology, Professor Lipton. Lipton has made a discovery that will rewrite the history books, but as fate would have it, he has opened the portal to Xibalba and fallen victim to those who have been set free. What follows is a tale of the truest horror. Mayan Blue is Michelle and Melissa’s debut novel and after reading many of their short stories beforehand, it was clear that this was a masterpiece in the making. Stifling, claustrophobic terror and hopelessness seeps from every page, every word. This book is the truest definition of horror you can imagine, and written with such naturally terrifying description as to leave you feeling grateful that the Mayans have faded into obscurity and your sinful life will only condemn you to the playground version of the Christian Hell. Five stars doesn’t even begin to rate this tale. Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason – The Sisters of Slaughter – have arrived with a vengeance that will plunge the world of horror into its very own nightmare. One from which it may never recover.
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
