    Expert and impressive ghost tapestry

    One more time down into the basement and I'd follow Ms. Cavendish down any dark basement she cares to write about. Waking the Ancients (Book #2 of the Nemesis of the Gods trilogy) is another winner of gothic horror and extended, masterful dread. The tale follows characters introduced in the first book (before that book's events) and doubles down on what's going on in modern day, all taking place at the very haunted Villa Durnstein. Heroines are imminently rootable and Cavendish's villain of the trilogy, Dr. Quintillus, is extremely hissable in his quest (both while living and beyond the grave) to possess Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. Cavendish is weaving quite an impressive and epic tapestry in these books, effortlessly weaving back and forth through time, while never forgetting that these books are first and foremost horror tales. And no one writes better gothic horror than Cavendish. If blood and splatter isn't your bag, yet paranormal romance is too cutesy, give Cavendish's tales a read. But, really, if you love good writing, expert chills, and a well-woven plot with memorable characters, Cavendish's books are recommended for everyone. (Me? I can't wait for book #3 in the series because I really, REALLY want Quintilllus to get his comeuppance.)
