Spooky Swag for a Literary Halloween

“A black tide of perversity, violence, and lush writing. I loved it.” —Joe Hill. Debut author Jennifer Giesbrecht paints a darkly compelling revenge tale in The Monster of Elendhaven, a gothic fantasy about murder, a monster, and a magician who loves both. The city of Elendhaven sulks at the edge of the ocean. Wracked by plague, abandoned, stripped of industry and left to die. But some things don’t die easily. The monsters of Elendhaven will have their revenge, even if they have to burn the world to do it.
