This author is relatively new but has put out his third book recently, Celts and the Mad Goddess: The Deathless Chronicles I, which I just finished reading last week. Wow. I love this author. His previous two books, Deception of the Damned and The Priest of Orpagus, where wonderful novels that I enjoyed immensely. Then I sunk my teeth into Celts and the Mad Goddess. This is the first book in a planned series. It is action packed and historically accurate – something I love because I’m a bit of a history buff – and punctuated with plenty of myth, fantasy, and adventure. I posted reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads on all three of his books, but found one that I felt summed it up really well, so I’m posting it here:
I have read all three of P.C.Darkcliff’s books, and I loved them all, but this one is my favorite. Although set in a different time, the story itself is timely to what we are going through in the world today. Pandemia, the evil and manipulative Rat Queen, is determined to punish humans for what she perceives as their abuse of animals, and especially rats. She uses a troubled young woman, Rawena, as her tool to wreak havoc on the world with a plague. But there is so much more to this story. It’s a book of non-stop action, and many facets that weaves the story together into one heck of a ride. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up! – This was posted by reader (and author) Sharon Frame Gay.
It is worth the read. Spend a little for a Kindle version ($2.99 at the writing of this post) and enjoy a wonderful story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and fill you with surprises!
