Tears for the Departed

303 pages4 hours


Whatever battles monsters should take care
not to become a monster too, for if you stare
long enough into the abyss, the abyss stares into you.

Beyond Good and Evil – Friedrich Nietzsche

Renee Swann’s innocence was shattered in the Altinoma Valley, but she and her family survived. She believes she’s endured the most horrific circumstances imaginable, but she’s wrong. Now, nine years later, with a busy life and a good job in New York, Renee feels a growing uneasiness as the horrors of her past give way to a chilling new nightmare...and there’s nowhere to hide. Can she survive the horror that took root long ago once more, or will this ultimate exploitation and degradation destroy her?

Follow the triumphs and tragedies of the Swann family in the first novel of this series. Valley of Tears is now available through Melange Books. Look for the trilogy’s conclusion in And the Heavens Wept, coming soon.
