Dead SoulsJ. Lincoln Fenn
A deal with the devil = one hell of a ride. "Whether you call it grisly horror or macabre fiction, this book is one of the scariest and best to come down the pike in ages. The characters are difficult but compelling, and the writing is seamless. The narrative twists and turns are reminiscent of Dean Koontz or Stephen King at their finest. This story is horribly, horrifyingly awesome." —Publishers Weekly
