The first serialized installment of of the book 3 in the Ravencrest Saga is coming soon.
WorExorcism
“Midnight. The witching hour. Watery echoes in an empty building. The grand indoor pool at Ravencrest Manor babbles and gurgles as chlorine-scented water pumps, flowing like cool blood in veins and arteries. The moon, full and high above the arched glass ceiling, shines its light into the cobalt pool, casting splintered rays across the water, picking up golden highlights as it hits the constellations, the planets, and their moons set into the bottom of the pool.
The statues surrounding the water are alive with moonlight and reflection. Poseidon, enthroned at one end, frowns over his Kingdom, alabaster eyes flickering with moonbeams. Across the long spanse of water, a jovial Dionysus is surrounded by his Maenads, who shimmer and shimmy in the moving glow of the moon.
Elsewhere, all along the blue-and-star-tiled floor bordering the plunge, marble sylphs and nymphs watch from the shadows. Where the pool narrows to a river, turning and weaving like a snake behind the main body of water, only to return again, a clutch of Muses titters at anyone brave enough to venture so far from the main room.
A phantasmic sound. A spring and thunk from the tall diving board that obscures the darkened dressing rooms beyond. Then a splash as someone dives in, and somehow, water explodes into the air. The sound ebbs and flows with movement.
But if no human ear is present to hear it, no eye to see it, can these sights and sounds be real? Or are they merely tricks of light and sound, magic courtesy of Mother Nature?
Something white and serpentine slithers and stirs beneath the water like glistening cold silk, there and gone again in an instant.
And then, music, faint but unmistakable, rises and echoes. Eddie Cantor. If You Knew Susie Like I Know Susie. Oh, oh what a girl.
Laughter. The sounds of a party, of voices, of glasses clinking.
A cloud passes before the moon, and the stage goes dark and silent but for the gurgle of water. No statue moves. The music is ended, if it was ever there at all. And then…
Chanting, soft and sinister, from somewhere nearby. An echo. Malignant minor-keyed singing – something reminiscent of the Dies Irae, but warped rather than tragic, disturbing rather than sorrowful. Day of Wrath and Doom Impending. We welcome your darkness; we bathe in your shadows.
The cloud passes, moonlight filters through the arched glass once more. The water is still now; there is nothing except, perhaps, the faint agonizing sound of a scream.”

A review of THE ANGEL ALEJANDRO at Anthony Avina’s:

Alejandro

“Sin and mankind’s misconceptions about the world at large play major themes in the supernatural thriller The Angel Alejandro by Alistair Cross. Exploring the world of temptations and the battle everyone faces within themselves when they give into their darkest desires, this incredible story showcases the ruthlessness that can reside in the best of us, and the strength it takes to push temptation aside to do what is right.

The first thing that grabbed me about this story was how similar the premise is to one of my favorite Stephen King stories, Needful Things. A charming salesman brings chaos and destruction to a small town, and must be battled by the forces of good within that very town. However this story is unique in that the overpowering threat of Gremory Jones and his followers is evenly matched by a powerful force for good working to help those few souls who see the cracks forming amongst the townspeople. The mysteries of the town’s descent, the arrival of Gremory Jones and the identity of Alejandro come colliding in the final moments of the book in a vicious and bloody battle between good and evil, and the small town of Prominence threatens to be destroyed forever by its own greed and sin.

The story and characters were very well drawn out throughout this story. Combining the best elements of authors like Stephen King and Dean Koontz, Alistair Cross showcases a unique talent for bringing to life the complex differences between people and showcase how supernatural or extraordinary events are handled by ordinary people. The characters are very relatable and the story itself flows smoothly, setting up the arch slowly and then zig-zagging at lightning speed as the action begins and the town begins to tear itself apart. The grammar was spot on and the imagery throughout the story is vivid, painting a picture that can easily be played across the recesses of the mind like a movie on a projector screen.

Overall this was a wonderful read. It had twists, shocking deaths and a fantastic ending that leaves the story for some characters open and brings a dramatic conclusion for others. This story highlights the incredible storytelling abilities of Alistair Cross, and he proves that he is one of the growing voices in the supernatural thriller genre.

A review of THE ANGEL ALEJANDRO:

“It’s hard to go wrong with anything by Alistair Cross, but The Angel Alejandro is a true stunner. Madison O’Riley is brought back from the brink of death by a mysterious, beautiful stranger who has no memory of who he is. In one of the most memorable (and funniest) scenes I’ve read in a long time, they settle on calling him Alejandro. As the unlikely (and adorable) pair set out to uncover Alejandro’s lost memories, another stranger comes to town, a salesman named Gremory Jones who, quite frankly, is the most terrifying fictional villain I’ve met since Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.

As the plot thickens (and by this I mean it just keeps getting more sick and twisted) the entire town of Prominence falls under an unholy influence that threatens to tear the community to pieces. I was open-mouthed and gasping as the townfolk went on their respective wicked warpaths. I haven’t seen such lunatic (and guiltily riveting) rampages since, well, ever.

Over all, The Angel Alejandro has everything I like in a good book and I rate it a 5 full stars based on plot (compelling), pacing and execution (both top-notch) lifelike characters (the kind you can really sink your teeth into and care about) and the kind of atmosphere that comes to life and fully pulls you into an intriguing new world. Easily one of my all-time favorites and I can see myself returning to it again and again. Recommended for anyone looking for an epic tale of good versus evil with a unique brand of romance and more than a little screaming mad terror along the way.

Fans of Stephen King will love Alistair Cross, and The Angel Alejandro is the perfect place to start.”

A review of The Angel Alejandro:

“At the core, The Angel Alejandro by Alistair Cross is about greed and lust and its effects when all restraints are removed. A true good versus evil story. The book is rather long (521 pages) and took longer than I thought to read. The reason for the slow read was not the speed of the plot, but I found myself totally absorbed in the story and wanted to go slower and savor all the details.

Alejandro is an angel that has been pulled into this world when Madison O’Riley fell from the roof of her home. He saved her life, yet he cannot remember who he is and strange things happen around him. He hears voices calling for help in his mind and when he responds to one such voice his powers are revealed to the entire world. There is an immediate media frenzy and everyone seems to want a piece of him, including another new comer in town, Gremory Jones.

Since Mr. Jones and his various associates have arrived in the small town of Prominence, to open a night club, there has been nothing but chaos. Their evil influence has taken hold in this normally sleepy, small town. The residents are rocked by one shocking event after another, each worse than the one before. With few exceptions, the entire town seems to have gone crazy.

Nick Grayson is the new chief of police and also a new arrival to Prominence. In all his years in law enforcement he has never seen the likes of what is happening. As a recovering alcoholic, his resolve is pushed to the breaking point as he deals with each new crisis and rising crime and murder rates. For law and order to be restored, Nick will have to learn to believe in things not of this world and seek the help of his new found friends.

This is a new take on angels and the devil for me. It made for an imaginative and fascinating read. I do want to issue a word of caution, the subject matter was dark and the details were graphic. Some readers might find it disturbing and I would not recommend this for younger readers. However, if you like urban fantasy and horror mixed with a tad of romance this is the book for you.”
