Review: Helen's Daimones


36292681 Helen's Daimones (Dyscrasia Fiction #2)

Helen’s Daimones – the gateway novella for Dyscrasia Fiction. Helen and Sharon are orphans haunted by supernatural diseases, insects, and storms. They are your tour guides in this entry-way novella into Dyscrasia Fiction which explores the choices humans and their gods make as a disease corrupts their souls, shared blood and creative energies. In Helen’s Daimones, guardian angels are among the demons chasing the girls. When all appear grotesquely inhuman, which ones should they trust to save them?


Black Gate Magazine raves: “Lindberg is the real deal, a gifted writer with a strong command of language,” Joe Bonadonna

Foreword Clarion, 5/5 Stars: “[Lords of Dyscrasia] is highly recommended, though not for the faint of heart…” Reviewer Janine Stinson

Beauty in Ruins: “[Spawn of Dyscrasia is] as much a horror novel as it is a fantasy novel, but it’s in that clash of genres that Lindberg distinguishes himself. [Spawn of Dyscrasia is] a gorgeous, textured, intricately layered story.” — Reviewer Bob Milne


Review:  This book, where to start? I first heard about this series starting with Lords of Dyscrasia a few years ago, and long before my new found appreciation of horror, and apparently, weird fiction. Only recently have I started reading such stories, and I was reminded of this series. I was advised by the author to start here. While it didn't give much in way of getting to know the characters, it has a disgustingly brilliant world, full of strange magics, and sorcery. I loved how detailed and grotesque this world is, and am excited to know there are two more books in this series!
