About the author
Dino Simonetti hails from Winthrop Massachusetts, a small town jutting out into Boston Harbor. Simonetti lived out his first 28 years in this historical town and can recall stories about things that go bump in the night, passed down to him over the years.
He moved to another well-known and richly historical area, the city of Salem Massachusetts. It is in Salem, the seed for this story spawned. Starting out as a 'gross-me-out' joke with a friend, it evolved over the subsequent 21 years.
Each year, his imagination made the story line become more and more twisted and convoluted, until he put together a tale that will run into several parts and top the 3000 page mark.
This first installment, Blood Majik, lays the groundwork for the mystery, the horror, and the suspense all rabid horror enthusiasts will enjoy following, in the end, hopefully leaving them breathless.
Simonetti creates a concrete, believable world as a backdrop for the wild things that occur. He creates a consistent narrative voice and shows a talent for unfolding a plot in a way that is both exciting and organic.
Suspense is surprisingly difficult to write but he is able to pull it off.
There is a large cast of characters, which is always a challenge to manage, and he manages to keep them clear for the reader to follow; as he says it, everyone knows these types of people in everyday life.
His prose is smooth and easy to follow and his portrayal of a mid-size city and its inhabitants feels authentic. His writing creates its own world and he is able to convince the reader not that it DID happen but that it COULD happen.
Overall it will be an enjoyable read--
Keep the lights on for this one!!

Combine Krystyne's perilous curiosity with Jodi's relentless inveigles and together they make it happen. Hecate hears Krystyne's incants just outside the invisible but very much intact veil separating human kind from the demons of another universe.
