Konn Lavery is a Canadian horror and dark fantasy writer who is known for his Mental Damnation series. The second book, Dream, reached the Edmonton Journal’s top five selling fictional books list.
I met Konn Lavery, the author of the Mental Damnation series, before I read Reality. I’ll admit, his elevator pitch game is strong, and I was really excited to dig into this horror fantasy book.
Blight of Exiles is book one in the Helix series. The action packed narrative will keep you reading for hours and have you picking up book 2 as soon as you’ve finished book 1.
I’ll start off by saying that I love anthologies. Collections of short stories are fantastic to have on your shelf for times when you have a few spare moments, but don’t quite want to sit down with a long novel. Being able to start and finish a story in one sitting is a wonderful gift, and Purgatorium is definitely one you’ll want to have on your shelf.
I found the plot to be intriguing, and there were definitely a lot of cliffhangers to keep me going—I was happy I was able to listen to it in large chunks because I didn’t have to wait to start the next chapter!
