Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 48,650. Language: English. Published: September 6, 2011. Categories: Fiction » Fantasy » Paranormal, Fiction » Horror » Crime(4.20 from 5 reviews)
The enigmatic Red Tash has created a compelling, multi-layered - and fully nuanced - modern fairytale, full of pop reference and varied philosophical allusions. This Brilliant Darkness is smart, thrilling, funny and full of great characters tangled in the kind of small-town webs Stephen King revels in. Excellent writing from a writer to watch. One of the best new writers I've read in years. ~A.H.
