Simply exquisite, Creatures of Will and Temper is an exotic bloom of a fantasy novel. It is not only a wondrous homage to Wilde’s Dorian Gray, it stands in it’s own right as a literary work.
The novel centers around two sisters, Evagne and Dorina Gray. The younger Dorina yearns to be an art critic, to experience and explore the art world of London. Her vibrance makes Evagne’s taciturn stolidness seem all the more dull and unpalatable. Evagne has limited love of beauty and has been disappointed both in love and by her sister’s actions. Her only love is that of fencing, the physical pleasure of achievement. It is only natural that the connection that Dorina forms with the captivating and completely unconventional Lady Henry troubles her. Lady Henry is a diabolist whose focus is aesthetic enjoyment. Henry’s unconventional approach...
Three Days to Dead puts the demon in the "demon drink" days of prohibition. The Damned is a comic series where gangsters are as likely to be demons as humans, and souls are bought and sold as easily as back alley hooch (alcohol). It is a dangerous time and if you dance with the devil your life may be very short. The exception is Eddie. For him, death is not permanent. A gift, maybe, a curse, definitely.
The Damned volume 1 contains the complete Three Days Dead story arc. Eddie is revived in order to find out what happened to the demon in charge of finalizing the truce between Big Al's gang and a competing family. But something tells Eddie there is more at stake than the missing demon and the possibility of a gang war. Finding out what means Eddie must face his own demons, the most dangerous of the bunch.
