Hell Cat of the Holt (a novella): supernatural horror in the Shadow Fabric mythos by Mark Cassell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review: HELL CAT OF THE HOLT by Mark Cassell
Mark Cassell's constructed mythos is creatively imagined and original. He utilizes the concept of a veil between dimensions in a new way. He calls it the Shadow Fabric, a dimension which contains demons, shadows, and other entities. Demons whose physical form may be interred on this side, restrained by "containment stones," while their consciousness remain active on the other side.
HELL CAT OF THE HOLT focuses on a tiny English village of long history, seemingly ordinary on the surface. But a long set of containment stones and an influx of the Shadow Fabric brings increasing trouble and dangers.
