Not Your Average Horror Read
Raven Miller is a powerful witch, born to a cruel mother who abused her father through sorcery and demonic magic. When Raven grows up, she’s determined to use her magic to fight injustice and protect the innocent. Travelling the country with her partner, the heinous terrorist Annie Sugarland, and their daughter, Raven becomes the ultimate avenging angel, until something more powerful begins the chase for her.
This book is for a very niche audience. Fans of graphic violence and horror will be comfortable reading this book. For the rest of us, not so much. The plot does not have a straightforward beginning, middle, and end narrative, but rather a collection of memories, flashbacks, dream sequences, and alternate realities. Even the writing style has a dream-like, or perhaps I should say nightmare-like, quality to it. The story and character motivation isn’t entirely clear. Think of this novel as an abstract painting. There’s meaning in it, you just have to find it.
Raven Miller Project will scare, startle, shock and repulse readers with its themes of war, death, and sorcery. If you’re looking for something new and unconventional in the horror genre, this might be the book for you.
