The palette of history and horror mingle in the hues of crimson blood and blackest death. The ghosts of the past mourn for lives unfinished, vengeance unfulfilled, and loves lost. The heart beats in a cacophony of anticipation and fear, echoing with the memory of those that once were, once danced, once believed. Hues of fear, of woe and dying, shades of death, of blood and shadow. Fallen women, queens, and angels. Angry men, ghosts, and devils. Life is woven in a tapestry of joy and sorrow; painted in the colors of pain, and triumph, and love. What artistry is found within the soul every man – some perfection, some wretched – painted words and pictures of things glorious and of things unspeakable.

Shades of Blood and Shadows by Angeline Hawkes is the second book in the New Voices of Horror series and represents an excellent short story collection from this Bram Stoker Award nominated writer. From ancient Mayans to the horrors at Chernobyl, she pulls you into the hearts and minds of fiendish creatures and tortured man. History offers up the wayward and monstrous in this collection of ghoulish hues.

Whispers about Shades of Blood and Shadow

“…every story is unique, and every story works. Angeline Hawke’s writing is sharp, elegant and satisfying in the most deliciously dark way.” – Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Zombie CSU and Patient Zero

“Angeline Hawkes writes with the fatalistic poetry of unstoppable history gone disturbingly wrong.” – John Everson, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Covenant, Sacrifice, and The 13th

“…Angeline Hawkes conducts an orchestra of creatures that are both bloody and sexy. You won’t forget this tour through historical horror; it’s sumptuous smorgasbord for beasts craving variety.” – Gregory Lamberson, author of Johnny Gruesome and Personal Demons
