"Comparable to Stephen King’s Gunslinger sequence (which is referenced in the novel) in terms of genre-blending originality and sheer creative courage, Vick’s latest is a page-turning storytelling tour de force." -- Blueink Review
"An audacious novel with a hero that braves both mythical creatures and a disability." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Delivering an amalgamation of everything that is universally loved by fantasy readers Vick has the enviable ability to engage our dreams and lust for far flung adventure by creating highly original storylines that really resonate with his readers. And he does so here by tapping into the rich literary vein of Viking myth and folklore to deliver a narrative that’s both original and highly entertaining, but it’s in protagonist Hank Jensen that Vick really hits his home run." -- BookViral
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.
Hank Jenson is a broken man. His health is ruined—along with his peace of mind. A pair of psychopaths called the Bristol Butchers destroyed his fifteen-year career as one of New York’s best criminal profilers. Health in ruins, his failure to catch them is a constant source of pain. His only respite is his family and when they disappear, Hank decides his time for doing nothing is over. He renews his pursuit, and the Butchers lead him to dark, desolate places that shake his beliefs. Along the way, Hank faces mythical beings and ancient evils.
The Bristol Butchers stole his career, his health, his peace of mind. All he wants to do is return the favor.
