Blood of Nanking is propulsive, intriguing and macabre, all wrapped in a daring narrative that explores one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century. I really enjoyed the author's research and attention to detail here. The way she unravels and dissects her anti-hero, Hagesawa, is nothing short of fascinating.
If you're a fan of Clive Barker and Mo Hayder, you should definitely pick this up. It's a seductive combination of horror and humanity. A true sucker punch of a read!
I am very much looking forward to read more speculative fiction from Antonna Seton.
