Welcome to the Seventh Terrace of Dante’s tower of Purgatory. Here, in darkness lit by a wall of flame, you will find souls enslaved by lust. Desire, curdled with madness and desperation.
Lust is a chameleon. Enough like love to be deadly. Enough like death to be beautiful. A lonely hunger, eternally burning in the shadow of what you want, but cannot quite have. From a pair of crazy-in-love criminals on a scavenger hunt at the outskirts of Hell, to a custodian working in a love doll brothel, to a sinister lingerie boutique behind a red door. This collection of dark tales will tempt you down a mere handful of the many paths leading to the wall of fire.
With wicked, box cutter-sharp prose, each of these transgressive tales drops wit and dark humour like candle wax. ~ P.J. Vernon, author of When you Find Me
