"I was captivated from the start by the stories inspired by Dante’s Inferno ... The author’s expertise in detailing for her readers brilliant imagery and rich words makes her book most fascinating. Indeed Ms. Penn has a penchant for the macabre ... be warned: you will be hooked in no time."5 star Amazon review
"JF Penn wields a very sharp quill. A vivid, perfected imagination combines with precise expression to jaw-dropping effect."5 start Amazon review
"Inspired by Dante's Inferno, this trio of short stories are dark, twisted and full of terror. Each story is linked but they are each full of their own unique dark imagery that lingers in your mind after you've finished reading. Excellently written tales that draw you in."5 star Amazon review
"A journey into the depths of darkness... These three stories are compactly written, but hold nothing back ... Entertaining and scary at the same time and the imagery is brilliant."5 star Amazon review
I always marvel how an author can write so few words in a story, yet provoke such wild and wonderful images - for me, the power lies in what is unsaid, leaving one's imagination run wild, with what the words are trying to show. Bravo.
Love the cover!
A real page-turner that I couldn’t put down. The imagery, the symbolism and the echoes of what the world could so easily turn into made this a thrilling read (that I probably shouldn’t have read before bedtime…).
Brilliantly crafted. I would have liked to read more than just three interlinking stories, though.
Trigger warning: violence, gore, death, allusions to rape, murder
