    One thought on “Theodora's Descent”

    1. This book is a stand alone novel, it contains triggers and there is a warning as to what they are at the beginning of the book.Theodora is a young noblewoman who has inherited her aunts estate in the countryside. As a child, she stayed there and remembers hearing strange voices trying to lure her from her bed. As an adult, her adventurous nature gets the better of her and she is lured into the depths of the house that she now occupies. Lured into a hellish city below the earths surface, Theodora [...]

    2. This story is like Alice in Wonderland on some serious drugs. Thia goes down a hole from hell with death all around. Tar'kul is the one who pulls her from grasp of the pale ones. He tells her to stay with him. He has set up a "home" for her with food of sorts so she can eat. She is soon to see his eyes are not what they seem and he he is more alien than human in his appearance. But he speaks to her in her mind. He tells her to stay with him and she will be safe. The others called to her and now [...]

    3. Holy cow! What a wonderfully told edge of your the seat story. Theodora hears the call in her dreams and has to answer. Will she get out or will she fall into the dark forever! The story is extremely well written and the characters will make your skin itch and wonder what really goes bump in the night.

    4. This book is crazy. Mad! I say that in only the most positive of ways, however. Its fresh and original while clearly drawing on a wealth of literary inspiration. Beyond the obvious HP Lovecraft inspiration that should be apparent to any horror fan these days, (though not always the obvious, fresh takes on Lovecraft's less known Dreamworlds content seem to seep in) shades of Alice in Wonderland are prominent. A murky tale of a young woman getting lost in a realm beyond her understanding where the [...]

    5. Theodora's Descent is a about a young woman and her journey into the unknown. The book was very well written and I love the original idea for the story. It was different and well thought out.Theodora unique but still relatable. My favorite part of the book was how the writer made me feel as if I was there with the scenery descriptions. However despite all these good things I couldn't connect with the book. Some of the events in the book jarred me out of the flow and kept me from totally enjoying [...]

    6. Phenomenal.The Keeps have expertly portrayed, a very deranged world.It is uniquely demented.So surreal.I Loved it.Now I am paraphrasing a friend here, when I say, the whole book had a feverish nightmare quality to it.It was so encompassing that I didn't even miss the (view spoiler)[abundant sex scenes, (hide spoiler)] that I've always associated with the Keep's work.Amazing.

    7. Liked a lot. It keep me reading two days in a row.Yes, I was squirming on my chair thinking "this is too much" but kept reading.Theodora's Descent is like a nightmare of so many things that one can't guess what is going to happen.I love Paranormal.I receives a free copy of this book for an honest review

    8. A dark, twisted tale that hooks you from the first page. Theodora discovers a world of monsters under the ground and ventures into it. Can she survive this nightmarish land?

    9. Dante’s Inferno and Hieronymus Bosch - that’s what this book was. I have to admit that I didn’t pick it at first. Prolific as they are, I’ve never read these authors before, and to be honest, I never have any idea what Ingrid Hall is going to throw at me next (hurrah! I love surprises!), so I really had no idea what to expect, and no pre-conceived notions. Theodora’s Descent started out as a pretty staid gothic novel. Can I say boring? It started out pretty boring. Ho-hum. A young woma [...]

    10. This book was just not for me at all. I sort of didn't realize I was embarking on a Horror/Romance/Erotica novel. I just thought it was a Horror novel, welp I was um wrong. That particular genre of horror just isn't my thing but aside from that I tried to just take on the book as I would any other but I was so confused during the first 7 chapters I didn't get if the main character was actually asleep or awake. I thought she was dreaming and then the description made it seem that it wasn't a drea [...]

    11. 3.5 StarsTheodora is a strong and independant woman, willing to live the way she chooses and not what society dictates. But when Theodora inherited her great-aunts manor, everything she knows about life and reality is tested. As Theodora feels a pull from a force unknown, she questions everything and slowly realizes that the pull she feels is very real and is calling to her. Can she resist what she feels is dark or will she succumb to it's will?I was immediately drawn into this tale of darkness [...]

    12. One really strange book. It reminded me of Alice In Wonderland, but not for children. At times it got boring with so much of the same thing, running, trying to stay safe. Then something really weird would happen. And trust me .weird is not nearly a strong enough word.

    13. I cannot describe what happens without giving away what must only be experienced. Think: ALICE IN WONDERLAND; Alfred Hitchcock style and you will understand and yes, there is a 'happy ever after' ending. Fantastic story!

    14. It definitely falls under the "what did I just read" category, with a good ending, so I enjoyed the book. It's definitely weird though. :-)
