9781491021408: Nightmarish Sacrifice (Cardew)

Unpredictable. Symbolic. Mysterious. NIGHTMARISH SACRIFICE. A sinister nightmare repeats for the thirteenth time in a row. A sacrificed ghost is weeping on her own abandoned grave, disturbing Freya's dreams... and secret nightmares. A mask of invincibility is rising between a boy and the girl who loves him. Hypnotizing and intense, penetratingly gray as dead starless skies, Cardew's brutally beautiful eyes block his soul behind themselves like lurid mystifying mirrors that can flawlessly reflect others' feelings without showing any of his own... Assuming he ever had such. Nobody knows what hides behind his mask of a hero - least of all his lovely Freya, who lets her obsessions disguised as intuition lead her into his mesmerising labyrinth of insanity and love. When a million masks become the actor's face and they all explode in a single moment, what happens to his uncompromising pride? Best enemies can make the best of friends - but the worst of lovers. Unusual, tempting, and sinisterly beautiful, NIGHTMARISH SACRIFICE is written in a luxurious, excessive Gothic style, imaginatively elaborating on the invisible in its restlessly unpredictable story. At eleven o'clock in the graveyard, you can meet the truth in faces you haven't expected. But some truths are better off dead. And buried.

About the Author:

Obsessive suspense, abstraction, and gently sinister mystery tempting your mind into a chaos of thought-provoking wanderings... This is what you can expect from the novels written by SIMONA PANOVA. She can claim more experience in creative writing than expected given her age, since NIGHTMARISH SACRIFICE is her first published novel, but by far not the first one she ever wrote. Born in Bulgaria in 1992, Simona currently is a university student in the UK. As well as writing, she loves grim rainy weather, heavy metal music, and drawing, and has the curious habit of constantly driving the plot of her books into striking unexpected directions, equally appealing and appalling. NIGHTMARISH SACRIFICE is deeply steeped in her favourite ominous atmosphere of gloominess and romance, beautiful and horrifying at the same time. Her writing style is excessive and luxurious, playing on concepts and hidden secret symbols some of which remain a mystery... Even after the end of the book.
