The world of magic is unified by a single truth: "The arts have tainted you."
For one man--a man corrupted by power and driven by a lust to kill--the price of his pursuits for power has become both a reason and a means of destroying lives. As this madman quickly discovers, the potential for murder and maiming are almost infinite when a flick of the wrist or a blink of an eye can rip flesh and snap bones, and the creative means of slaughtering innocents is a blood-red and limitless sky.
With fragmented thoughts and distorted truths festering in the twisted mind of this magical maniac, a sadistic killing spree ensues. As his campaign of carnage takes its toll on a family there seems to be no end to the bloodshed in sight…
… until he finds himself bathed in a Crimson Shadow.
I received this book from the author to give an honest review. ~WaAr~
There is a reason they call Nathan Squiers the Literary Prince of Darkness! His books are a no hold back horror type read. I have read a previous book by Nathan and loved it.
Magic Murder is a short story, where the main character pretty much kills people using magic. By the way he hates Puppies! But loves ducks hahaha. That part right there had me laughing. Who doesn't love puppies? Obviously Jeremy does not. Magic Murder is a very sick and twisted book to read and by sick and twisted I am mean AWESOME! It kind of reminded me of a slasher film only in writing.
I love how Nathan doesn't hold back in his book with the language or the gruesome parts! It was a fantastic read that took me 15 minutes to read. Will definitely be reading more from him in the future.
My Rating: 5 wine glasses
