Nocturnal Quotes: Maplecroft

Hi everyone!

It's time for yet another Nocturnal Quote! This week, a quote from Cherie Priest's new Lovecraftian horror struck me as particularly powerful so I decided to share it with you with a little help from the lovely lady behind Le Non Design.

So without further ado...

And here's a little something about the book:

Maplecroft (The Borden Dispatches #1)Author: Cherie Priest
Series: Borden Dispatches, #1
Released: September 2nd 2014
Publisher: Roc Trade
Length: 448 pages
Buy: Amazon

Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one....
The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny.

But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean’s depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness.
This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it. With an axe.

Thank you for stopping by. Until next time!
