Book Blurb

Ever since Knox fell asleep and released Harold Herxhiemer’s spirit, the town of Fawnskin has never been the same, and probably never will again.

As Knox’s and Rallus’ relationship blossoms, a dark cloud begins to move into Fawnskin, a cloud from Knox’s past that threatens to rip him away from the man he so passionately loves. And those who were presumed silenced forever continue to walk, descending on Fawnskin and seeking their revenge.

What will happen to the citizens of this fair town? Will Rallus and Knox find the answers they seek, or will unseen forces hold the town in its grip and destroy everyone and everything in its wake?

First edition published by Amber Allure, December 2010.

Book Review

As fantastic as the first book, and a very worthy sequel, ‘Frenzied’ had me fascinated from page one. Even knowing a little better what to expect in terms of genre elements like ghosts, or dybbuks, that possess people, the story was still full of surprises. And that is almost as true the second time around – mainly because it’s been a few years since I read this story the first time. And if course there are surprises, you'll say, this was written by A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly, after all. And you'd be right.

I loved the revelations about Rallus and Knox (mainly Knox's past), and how their relationship grew. The mystery about the deaths at the old people's home continues to haunt them, as do some old and some very disquieting new enemies. But they stick it out together this time, and that made the whole “mess” more bearable for me.

The book is fast-paced, action-packed, carries several storylines, and makes it all come together in the end as well. As for the ending? I've got to warn you - you'll think it's all solved, but nothing could be further from the truth. The last few paragraphs almost knocked me over - and I can't wait for the third book! There’s going to be one, right? Right?

If you like unusual paranormal tales full of twists and turns, if you want to see the main characters struggle to deal with lots of surprises, and if you’re looking for a read that will keep you in suspense to the very end, then you will probably like this novella.
