Steve Vernon presents --- Tatterdemon omnibus

Meet the author Steve Vernon.  

In my opinion a somewhat disturbed man, if you disagree then you apparently have not read his books

The Tatterdemon Omnibus: All three books of the Tatterdemon Trilogy in one whole collection
This book is not for the faint of heart. Explicit language, overly descriptive murder scenes etc is rife.
That said. The premise of the nook is not unique what is unique is the authors voice.
This, although a horror is also a satire on the human condition and the authors voice in how he brings some very unlikely dead and alive characters to life is absolutely amazing. Not a long book but I own the omnibus so I am delighted to get straight on to reading book two.
If you are at all squeamish then I say - stay away. If not this man has talent. Explore it.
Honestly this book needs a few pause breaks. I left the omnibus to read books in-between since the book itself got to be a bit too much.
The graphic nature. Small but consistent editing issues and some character names getting confused were still not enough to change my mind....this man can write but I honestly would advise the author to work in lighter, less satirical common every day scenes since this pace got too be too much for me and I am thinking the same would be true for other readers as well.

Book Description
All three volumes of the spine-chilling TATTERDEMON trilogy available in one single volume. 
In 1691 the town of Crossfall taught the witch Thessaly how to die. They beat her, they shot her, they hung her - but nothing worked. When they finally tried to bury her alive Thessaly set the field against them. The first man died as a gust of wind harrowed the meat from his bones. A root,flung like a dirty javelin, cut a second man down. Many more deaths followed. The Preacher Fell impaled the witch upon her very own broom but she dragged him down into the field to wait for three more centuries. 
Three hundred years later Maddy Harker will murder her bullying husband Vic. She will bury him in the field as she buried her abusive father years before that. The very same field where the revenant spirit of Thessaly Cross lies waiting. 
In three days Vic will rise again - a thing of dirt, bone and hatred. 
Men will call him the Tatterdemon. 
And hell - and Thessaly - will follow 
"The genre needs new blood and Steve Vernon is quite a transfusion." –Edward Lee, author of FLESH GOTHIC and CITY INFERNAL
