The Book Of Kindly Deaths by Eldritch Black Blog Tour and Giveaway!


When twelve-year old Eliza Winter finds a secret room in her missing grandfather’s sprawling, Gothic house, her safe, sheltered life is blown apart. Inside, below a stained glass window where moonlight shines no matter the time of day, sits The Book of Kindly Deaths.

In defiance of her controlling mother, who has always forbidden her to read anything strange or imaginary, Eliza takes the book. As night sets in, Eliza reads one haunting story after another. And the further she journeys inside the book, the more the boundaries between our world and a shadowy land of monsters and forbidden places begin to blur.

When the strange, crooked man from the book arrives on the doorstep claiming to be a rare book collector and demanding entry into the house, Eliza’s world is turned upside down. To escape him she must dive all the way into the spine-tingling world of The Book of Kindly Deaths to save her grandfather-and write an end to the nightmare she’s caught inside.


Excerpt :

At first glance Eliza thought he looked quite normal. A teenager, maybe two or three years older than she. He wore a dark-blue hood above his long black coat, the darkness of his garments in stark contrast to his chalk-white face.

As he glanced at Eliza, she tried to avoid the glare from his eyes, which were so green that she thought it had to be a trick of the light. Nut-brown sparks danced at their centers, hypnotizing her until he opened his mouth and displayed two long fangs nestling amongst his teeth.

Eliza stepped away.

“What can I get you?” Mr. Barrow asked. If he felt any sense of danger from the boy, he didn’t show it.

“I need something to take for the road. Food, no drink. What do you have?”

“How about dirge dust? I have a couple of bags. Not the tastiest of things, but remarkably filling.”

“I’ll take it.” The boy turned to Eliza. “You don’t need to cower, girl. I won’t bite you. Humans aren’t to my taste.”

Eliza shook her head. “I’m not frightened of you.”

The boy smiled, a hollow gesture. “Of course you’re not.” She turned away from him and gazed across the bar.

Anywhere but at those piercing green eyes.
