Welcome to my spot on the book tour for The Memories in Blood by Guy Cross. Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the invite. Read on for more info and my review.
From the notebook of Gregory Rook: “Sacramental power is born from extremes: obsession, desire, passion, pain, ecstasy, desecration… True holiness transcends morality…”

A stormy night; a hit and run and Stephen Porter unleashes a train of events that delivers him—and his family—into the clutches of a terrifying dark magician…
… whose magick works through the medium of blood – and the innocence of children.
Stealer of souls, shapeshifter devil, how can he be defeated?
The answer lies in the memories of Jonny Sorrell, a teenage boy who has no idea they form the key to ending Rook forever.
The question is, will he realise in time?
The Memories in Blood by Guy Cross caught my eye because of the description. This is my first read from this author, so I went in blind and was excited to check this one out. I’m happy to report, it was a good read!
The chapters were quite long, but the writing is great, which keeps the pacing fast. It was pretty easy for me to get into this and once I was hooked, it was hard to set it down.
The plot is rather dark, which I enjoyed. I liked the combination of thriller with a little horror. I was able to feel the fear and sadness when I was supposed to. I really enjoy Guy Cross’ writing. The imagery is fantastic and I felt myself completely absorbed when I was reading.
The Memories in Blood is a great psychological thriller. If that’s a genre you enjoy, check this one out.
Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the free review copy and tour invite. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Guy Cross has been painting and writing from ever since he can remember, leaving a career in teaching to pursue his true loves: writing, painting and making music. His writing is psychologically deep and very dark, reflecting his love of the arcane and occult. Gothic horror is his speciality.
