Crimson Souls

Crimson Souls - William Holden
DNF at 48%

I normally enjoy the author's works and I liked all books that I have already ready by William Holden, but this one unfortunately didn't work for me at all. I expected in the first place historical erotica in the style of his Thomas Newton series, but I what I got was rather an extended version of [b:Grave Desires|27073995|Grave Desires|William Holden|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1444490916s/27073995.jpg|47116183], that I liked as anthology, but that I wouldn't have picked up as a full-length novel. I'm just not a regular reader of the genre.

All in all, if you liked Grave Desires, a finalist of the 28th Lambda Award in the category gay erotica, or if you understand and appreciate the GAY EROTICA HORROR genre, you have to read it, because I don't know many authors who are active in this genre.
I just don't want this book ends up in the wrong hands.
