“The story takes in occult ceremonies, witch-craft, the lingering of evil and violent deeds in geographical locations, cultural and anthropological superstitions, night-terrors and sleep paralysis, all set against the wonderfully, almost Gothic, backdrop of St. Andrews. Superficially, it could be a story straight from the original Hammer studios, yet the prose is beautiful and full of depth, and treats its subject matter with a depth and seriousness that never becomes po-faced. Of course, the pace can be leisurely and there are long passages where little seems to occur between the scenes of dread and outright horror, but these are so well written and informative (whether it’s giving background, historical information on the area, or simply developing the characters), that it is a joy to read.”
