I was thrilled, and humbled, to find this latest review of my retelling of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. Dog-Eared Daydreams reviewed A Face without a Heart here and the reviewer had this to say:
"The author's storytelling is above reproach, refusing to shy away from Wilde's version and his own vision of what I feel could be a modern-day classic of its own. I was beyond gratified that Reed chose to stick with the direction Wilde's story went because giving this a happily-ever-alternative would have been literary sacrilege, at least in my own humble opinion. If there's one book I hope you'll read right away, it's A Face Without a Heart. Five-plus stars. ♥"

A modern-day and thought-provoking retelling of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray that esteemed horror magazine Fangoria called “…a book that is brutally honest with its reader and doesn’t flinch in the areas where Wilde had to look away…. A rarity: a really well-done update that’s as good as its source material.”
A beautiful young man bargains his soul away to remain young and handsome forever, while his holographic portrait mirrors his aging and decay and reflects every sin and each nightmarish step deeper into depravity… even cold-blooded murder. Prepare yourself for a compelling tour of the darkest sides of greed, lust, addiction, and violence.
