Widdershins (Whyborne & Griffin #1) (book review)

Widdershins by Jordan L. Hawk

Published by CreateSpace, 2013

eBook, paperback, audio: 226 pages

Genre: gay; paranormal; horror; romance

Summary: Percival Endicott Whyborne is a reclusive, sexually repressed comparative philologist working in a museum in the fictional nineteenth-century New England city of Widdershins. When a strange book that appears to be written in cipher is connected with a recent murder, his services are employed by a private detective named Griffin Flaherty, who subsequently drags him out of his shell and into the heart of a dark and, possibly, supernatural mystery. Mummies, a brilliant lady egyptologist, necromancy, and a fledgling romance between the two male leads make this series debut a compelling read.

Thoughts: Widdershins blends romance with flavors of Lovecraftian horror to excellent effect. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing, and look forward to reading more of this series.
