The Girl from the Blood Coven, by Brian Moreland, is a short story that released today (July 2, 2013) for FREE as a prequel to Brian’s upcoming novella The Witching House, which will release August 6, 2013. If you’ve not read Brian’s work before, now is the perfect chance to try him out at no cost, which isn’t really a risk as he’s one of the best horror and supernatural writers on the planet. If you’ve read him, what are you waiting for? You know this is good!
It’s short because it’s a prequel, but it packs a punch and send the reader spiraling out of control to get their hands on The Witching House, which is really quite morbid within itself as since it isn’t available yet it just leaves you hanging there, without resolve and wanting more!! You’re caught holding your breath, between life or death….ok, maybe not that bad, but I was caught up in the story and ready to figure out the mystery!
Brian is the kind of writer that grabs you from the start. His writing is always crisp, his imagery perfection, his suspense on target, and his characters interesting. Going again in the direction of a serial killer plot in the short story, Brian wraps us up into a supernatural crime mystery. His serial killer may be either someone or something, I don’t know yet, but what I know is that it’s horrible. And I’m scared and creeped out.
By the time I am done reading about the Blevin’s Coven murder, where 25 people are horribly killed with one surviving witch that leads the detectives to the house in the middle of the Texas woods, I am ready to solve the murder and am fully invested in the story line. The short story won’t take you more than an hour to read, then you’ll probably re-read it again as you’ll crave more of Brian’s story as you wait to get your hands on The Witching House.
Brian ‘s mixture of crime, drama, suspense, horror, the supernatural, the occult, and some sort of history (this time fictional) always makes his stories jump off the page as if they should be on the big screen. The Girl from the Blood Coven is your ticket into a world of dark imaginings and it’s only just the beginning.
