The story of Nat Davy and how he never let the bastards grind him down ★★★★
If you’re after unnerving historical fiction that comes wrapped in a big ol’ bow, then let me introduce you to the Queen of Gothic Spooks, Laura Purcell.
Now, this is a story all about how Will’s life got flipped upside down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, and I’ll tell you all about how he found a woman in the ocean and became her rescuer on multiple occasions in a town called Hokitika.
He was a rich boy. She ran an inn. Can I make it any more obvious? 🎶 ★★★
Roaring 20s, but make it Shanghai. Throw in some monsters, murder and a blood feud and you’ve got the perfect book.
Hook this book into my veins because it gave me life.
Want to dip your toe into horror? Like a bit of gore with your historical fiction. This is for you ★★★✯☆
A sumptuous insight into Chinese folklore, ancient superstition and the afterlife.
