The old priory is a house built for the Church, but designed by Satan. In the house, nuns are drained of blood by things far worse than vampires and a virginal student is seduced by the perverse and haunted by things more terrifying than ghosts.
When Venetia Barlow began work at St. John's Priory, she expected a quiet summer of drudgery and boredom. But almost immediately she is haunted by lurid desires and visions of a city filled with monsters -monsters who know her name. Is the house really a place of meditation, or is it a temple of abominations? Venetia learns the truth when a long-dead priest gives her an unspeakable message direct from the howling, blood-drenched streets of Hell.

Wonderful, interesting dark fiction. A+ all of the way. Would read authors other works.
"Really good stuff"
This was a bit of a wild card download and for once It paid off. Good book, good writing, narrator is a bit gruff and takes a few minutes to get used to but is fine.
It is sort of a detective horror book and is pretty graphic in places, the first 20 mins are probably the worst. I really hope audible get the first two in this series. Give it a go, if you like the horror/supernatural or spooky genres you are probably going to like it.
