Risen by [Trant, Eric]

Bound by a death-debt to his hunchback master, Alberto discovers a door the miners call Porta dell’Inferno, the Door to Hell, deep within the sulfur mines. When he learns the demon-angel of his dreams stalks the caverns beyond the door, Alberto realizes a strange fate has lured him and his brother to the gates leading to the underworld.

About the Author:

Eric Trant Head Shot

Eric resides in Dallas, TX with his wife and children, where he writes and manages his own business. His writing combines literary characterization with supernatural elements, all the while engaging the reader’s senses with constant movement and vivid settings. His books are designed to be one-sitters, meaning they can and should be read in one (or a few) sittings, owing to the fast-paced nature of the writing.

 

You can visit Eric at http://www.EricTrant.com, or see his blog at DiggingWithTheWorms.blogspot.com.
Review:

This is the third novel by author Eric Trant that I’ve had the pleasure to read. Risen did not disappoint! If you enjoy truly good story telling with a supernatural element, then Eric Trant is the author for you. He also manages to beautifully weave spiritual undertones into the story, which are subtle, but essential to the plot. I can’t imagine the amount of research that must have went into this book but it allowed him to paint a picture…stunning, terrifying visuals… that will haunt your dreams, for sure
