Eric Larocca's newest novel Everything the Darkness Eats weaves cosmic horror with small town prejudice into a tale of creeping dread. Larocca never shies away from the gruesome or the traumatic and weaves these darkest parts alongside love. This Connecticut town is neither cozy nor warm, and is instead full of mysterious and bizarre disappearances, unrestrained bigotry and the dark effects of its most powerful resident Mr. Crowley. Interweaving two resident's attempts to uncover and stop the horror, Larocca forces his characters to reckon with what means the most to them and to what lengths they'll go for closure, revenge, and love. Perfect for fans of Clive Barker and other cosmic horror.
An insidious darkness threatens to devastate a rural New England village when occult forces are conjured and when bigotry is left unrestrained.After a recent string of disappearances in a small Connecticut town, a grieving widower with a grim secret is drawn into a dangerous ritual of dark magic by a powerful and mysterious older gentleman named Heart Crowley. Meanwhile, a member of local law enforcement tasked with uncovering the culprit responsible for the bizarre disappearances soon begins to learn of a current of unbridled hatred simmering beneath the guise of the town's idyllic community--a hatred that will eventually burst and forever change the lives of those who once found peace in the quiet town of Henley's Edge. From the Bram Stoker Award(R)-nominated author of the viral sensation, Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke, Everything the Darkness Eats is a haunting supernatural thriller from a new and exciting voice in genre fiction.
