"Through me the way into the suffering city. Through me the way into the eternal pain. Through me the way through the Lost People." Prepare yourself, gentle reader, for within this book, the angel Obadiah and his reluctant demon guide travel the length and breadth of Hell's nine circles and commune with 25 souls as part of a census of the damned. Angeline Hawkes, co-author of Night Wraith, brings her prodigious talents to bear on these twisted tales of sin and depravity. Bear witness to the fate of those who indulge in violence, greed, and other deadly sins throughout history. Abandon all hope, you who enter here!


"Angeline Hawkes's… imagination seems to tend toward a Lovecraftian-meets-George Romero-in-a-dark-alley sensibility." —Robert Butterfield, Necropsy: The Review of Horror Fiction 

"Angeline Hawkes really knows her stuff. That she has gone this long so largely unsung and overlooked is more than a shame; it's a crime. Shades of Blood and Shadow is a collection of thirteen tales that prove well able to showcase a talent that is almost out of place in this day and age." —The Horror Fiction Review 

"Shades of Blood and Shadow is intelligent horror, which doesn't mean it sacrifices emotional punch. Angeline Hawkes knows when to go for the gut, the jugular, or the heart; she does it with restraint and timing. There is a sense of place and purpose in her writing. She strikes the right balance between the blood and the shadow." —Hellnotes
