If you’re looking for enviable prose and a smoldering plot set in steamy Victorian London, and you enjoy supernatural mysteries with a touch of romance and a splash of blood, I’d highly recommend this book to you! The scenes are so visceral and eerie, the effect is at times almost claustrophobic, a testament to Olson’s carefully crafted prose. Prepare to be transported by The Half Killed!
As a writer, this is one of those books that can make me jealous with the author's ability to paint such a clear picture with words, and I don't say that lightly.
The Half Killed will seduce you. It will whisper and draw you gently into its pages. Before you know it you're in its clutches. This isn't a wonton sexual seduction, all about the eyes and desire. No, this is the kind that entices your mind, playing on your emotions of safety and fear, telling you its going to be all-right while you know for a certainty something evil lurks around the corner but you can't help but trust and follow into the shadows. It is a dark, intimate, and immersive Victorian horror story that will keep you turning pages.
