Our Review

‘Heathan James was the genesis of my soul’s reawakening…a soul not meant for peace, but one handcrafted for death and murder and blood and bones…Soulmates forged in fire, under the watchful gaze of Satan’s mocking eyes. Heathen. Ellis. Just a couple of sick fux.’

We have no words….literally we’re lost for words. Gobsmacked. Speechless. We cannot believe what we just read. Tillie Cole is quite simply a masterclass in her own right. We never quite know what we’re going to get when we pick up a new book from this Author as she can write absolutely anything and everything, but what we do know is that it will be incredible. And it was. It was horrific in its inference, which was an initial gut-wrenching hurdle. It was graphically gruesome in its retribution over which we truthfully rejoiced. It was a harrowing psychological fantasy of wondrous peculiarity.

‘My heart was severed completely, the two parts of its flesh repelling the other, trying to escape the rage and pain and fucking consuming darkness.’

Heathan James and Ellis Earnshaw meet when they’re very young in the gated house of horrors, filled with monsters hiding in the shadows at day, exerting their depravities and turpitude at night. Not a single one without the traits of unrestrained force and viciousness for self-pleasures. It was gut-wrenching and stomach turning but it was phenomenal in its -almost Brothers Grimm like- sinister fantastical qualities whilst playing out in fictional real life.

“The devil lie…And he will trick…And he will kill, and travel miles to get to the one who holds his fucked-up black heart in her palm. He’d kill anyone who hurt her, just to make her his. He would punish anyone who got in his way.” His eyes flared with something so dark it seemed to blot out the dim light of the lamp. “He will awaken, through blood, what lies dormant in her soul. The darkness that had lurked hidden for years, sleepily waiting for the time to strike. To be born.”

The story of Rabbit and Dolly’s vengeance was mind-blowing as it took us down the rabbit hole into a journey through Tillie Cole’s version of Alice in Wonderland. For us, it played out like a Tarrantino movie and we would love nothing more than to see these characters come to life on the big screen. It’s the writings of your darkest most horrific nightmare, but what an absolutely brilliant and compelling read, one which we were unable to put down. Bravo Tillie Cole for writing a story that felt like no other, for always stepping beyond where she went before. The mind is truly a curious, twisted and wonderful thing which has the ability to wield such power and magic, be it darkness in light or the embers of lights flickering in the darkness.

“Only Earl Grey will ever do.”

Synopsis

When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.
Tick Tock.
