Advance Book Review: Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish

Jane Powell has been bullied and abused by her father as far back as she can remember, but Jane sees what she terms, “her angel”, a ghostly apparition she believes protects her. When downtrodden Jane finds herself in a job where her boss is abominable she finally makes use of this avenging angel, but everything has a price, can Jane withstand the cost of her wishes?

I loved this dark horror novella, which is well paced and well written. I was immediately absorbed into this read and became sympathetic to Jane’s woes. Jane narrates the story and is a solid three dimensional character in literary terms. The horror element in the book is creepy, but for me the ending was just a little too tame, otherwise I would have awarded it the full five stars. I have not felt this excited by a horror since reading Susan Hill. I look forward to reading more from this hugely talented author.

Dark Avenging Angel will be released on Kindle on 4th August 2015.
