Gothic Cavalcade, by A. F. Stewart, is a dark, scary story with twists full of magic and light. Coolly disturbing, it starts with a mysterious carnival and a frightened woman. But who is this “Mother” who sends Byron to tempt the stranger in? And what dark initiation awaits?
Clever misdirection keeps the reader guessing as Althea gets to know the Family. Their generosity clearly hides a secret, and dark fears loom. But love is blossoming too, against a backdrop of Althea’s own secrets. And choices can change the view.
I enjoyed this story’s short complex path and gentle hints of mythology. Filled with great characters, it presents a true masquerade and reveals surprising hope behind some of its masks.
Disclosure: I can’t remember how I got this ebook, but I do wish I’d read it sooner. I really enjoyed it.
