“In 1890s New Orleans, three unusual men cross paths: Reynard LaCroix, his lycanthropy in remission with a silver bullet lodged against his heart; Artémius Savoy, a lapsed secular priest keeping vigil over Reynard’s progress; and Mahonri Grant, a Mormon gunslinger on the run.
Brought together by murder, united in a common cause, they pursue an unholy creature to save a young woman’s life.
Their dangerous road leads to the dark jungles of Borneo, where awaits an abhorrent mansion in the wilderness. There they must confront a host of the undead…and face the demons within themselves.”
Welcome to Sugar and Scream’s reading recommendation corner! We’ve both avid readers so every so often we’ll throw something at you that we think you should give the time of day/night.
We read this years ago and it still sticks with us. House of Corruption harkens back to the gothic horror days that we just need more of. New Orleans, werewolves, mystery, what more does a ghoul need? That cover can get some major love too. ❤
The only shame here is that to date, this is still Erik Tavares’ only novel.
