I turned around, Viscount D'Alessio stood ten feet in front of me. The
hairs on the back of my neck rose. My body froze and my heart beat
against my chest.
“Fancy meeting you here,” he said with a malicious smile.
“What do you want?” My voice cracked. I felt perspiration forming on my forehead.
opportunity to chat with you, become better acquainted.” His smile
widened, making his teeth more obvious, as he stepped toward me. I
looked around and saw no one. I turned and ran, but I hadn't gone ten
strides when I found him in front of me.
won't save you, and your precious little tart isn't here to rescue
you.” He grabbed my throat before I could take a step, holding me off
the ground. “It's time to have the dinner I promised myself the last
time we met.”
pulled me into the bushes when I heard a voice shout, “Stop. Police.
Neither of you move.” A large man walked towards us. In his left hand he
held his police shield. With his right he pointed a large revolver at
a bother.” The Viscount tossed me into the bushes. “I'll take care of
you next. Make a move and your death will be slow and excruciating.” He

Lisa Manetti's, The Gentling Box, combines excellent writing with a
terrific horror tale. The reader is immediately drawn into a dark world
where the sun never shines, and the sense of menace never ends. Ms.
Manetti demonstrates that horror exists within the human mind and soul
to a greater degree than in any zombie novel. Imre, the protagonist,
finds himself in a seemingly endless tunnel of horror controlled by his
mother-in-law, the sorceress Anyeta. He is continually
forced to choose between the lesser of evils, and takes the reader on a
journey none of us would ever want to experience. This novel is not for
the faint of heart, and it is not a good idea to read this tale before
you go to sleep.
The Devils Spectacles is not
really a full-blown horror story but rather a cautionary tale about what
happens when you deal with the devil. Sometimes we are better off not
seeing things we are not meant to see. A good read.
