They are twenty-something misfits...society's castoffs...urban strays looking for thrill. Something cheap, anything to get them through the night. Only their music is different. Sleepwalking on caffeine, nicotine, and drugs, they wait out the dawn in death-rock clubs and shadowy back alleys.
Into their midst comes the enigmatic Spyder. A patron saint of the aliented and lost, she invites them into her mesmerizing world of ritual and ceremony, blood and fire... a realm of vengeful gods, of exiled spirits harboring the dark secrets of Hell -- and the darker secrets of Heaven. Is she their guardian angel, forcing them to face their greatest fears even as she battles to save their ravaged souls? Or a much more terrifying force sent not to redeem but to destroy?
Somewhere between sanity and madness lies the shocking, vivid imagination of this extraordinary new writer. A novel unlike anything you have ever read, Silk will change the texture of modern horror forever.
