It’s a curious thing, vengeance: the idea of healing by someone else’s suffering. Never resolved, revenge resurfaces, demanding more; deeper wounds and added anguish … all failing to fill the bottomless pit where your heart was.
Karieth is a Gothic Mystery-thriller, based on the 16th Century Welsh myth of the Cyhyraeth. It begins with a feverish nightmare; the brutal slaying of a young innocent woman … dead but refusing to die.
Driven by vengeance, Karieth can become any woman, at any time, or her own horrific apparition This suspenseful and gripping tale moves forward three-hundred years to the murky back streets of Victorian London.
In Karieth, the author confronts the power of imagination, the gulf between love and hatred, the desire for revenge and the need for compassion. Karieth’s mystery is finally revealed in one of the most unique and thrilling endings in literature.
