During the Great War, Tomas operated a devastating weapon - a flame projector that doused the enemy in liquid fire. Having left the battlefield a shattered man, he comes home to find yet more tragedy - his wife has died of flu. Haunted and broken, he dreams of fire. Alice Dartle is a talented clairvoyant. Her fiery nightmares are connected to the shell-shocked war veteran and widower. She believes she can bring peace to him and his wife's spirit. But the inferno that threatens to consume Tomas and Alice was set ablaze centuries ago by someone whose hatred transcended death itself...

Reviews

Praise for Brimstone "Full of charm and care, with light-hearted fun woven gently into compassionate renderings of sorrow and loss, Brimstone is equal parts affectionate romp and affecting story -- not least because, given the state of the world, it's good to read books in which hate is scarier than ghosts, love is stronger than hate, and witches simply refuse to burn." --NPR.org "Brimstone is at turns funny and unsettling, whimsical and dangerous, and makes for some great, eerie, historical fiction about a place in our own backyard."--The Daytona Beach News-Journalonline.com Praise for Cherie Priest and the Borden Dispatches "A remarkable novel, simultaneously beautiful and grotesque. It is at once a dark historical fantasy with roots buried deep in real-life horror and a supernatural thriller mixing Victorian drama and Lovecraftian myth. You won't be able to put it down."--Christopher Golden, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Maplecroft is dark and lyrical, haunting and brined in blood. It is as sharp as Lizzie Borden's axe--and Borden herself is a horror heroine bar none. Cherie Priest is our new queen of darkness."--Chuck Wendig, author of Zeroes "Chapelwood is devious, twisted and beautifully written. Cherie Priest is one of our very best authors of the fantastic. Brava!"--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Ghostwalkers "A wild, awesome page-turner....Priest has taken the real-life historical details of the Borden murders...and turned them into one of the best Lovecraftian stories I've ever read."--io9
