About The Book

If you liked Caitlin Starling's The Luminous Dead and The Deep by Nick Cutter then you'll love this detective, horror, science fiction adventure.

Thirty-seven miners disappear without a trace within a Titanium mine, Hellweg’s Keep, deep within Zeta One, a moon orbiting the planet, Terra. When FBI agent Kendra Omen arrives via the spaceship Marietta, strange phenomenon begins to manifest…suicides, shadows a shade darker than the shadows they move within, disembodied whispers, and Kendra would swear she catches a glimpse of her own deceased daughter walking the dimly lit halls of Hellweg enterprises. But that’s impossible. Isn’t it? As evidence of occult practices at the mine emerges, Kendra realizes the answers they seek, and hopefully the thirty-seven miners, will only be found underground in the claustrophobic labyrinth of shafts and natural caverns within Hellweg’s Keep.

Raves and Reviews

Praise for previous books:

Bruised is a fast-paced, shiver-inducing tale. Holley has artfully crafted a story of terror with an undercurrent of romance.” Amity Hope, Best-selling author of Twisted.

“Holley crafts deep and meaningful relationships and then thrusts them into the depths of unmitigated madness and terror. You consistently get a double-gut-punch of romance and horror. Seven Cleopatra Hill does not disappoint.” Brandan Deneen, Best-selling author of Morbius: Blood Ties and The Chrysalis.

"Tethered to Darkness is a trip back in time, to the days when bookstores packed their turnstiles with paperback horror novels from the likes of Richard Laymon, Rick Hautala, and Shaun Hutson. A horror writer’s dream novel filled with dark imagery and supernatural tropes, readers are treated to a traditional premise that spins out unique characters confronting their terrors head on, expertly incorporated into a darkly imaginative tale that will keep you turning the pages well into the night.” Michael Laimo, author of Dead Souls and Deep in the Darkness.
