When naïve, young Annabelle received her invitation to the Victorian masquerade ball, she could not resist the temptation. From childhood, she had always hidden her secret. While other little girls dreamt of their young princes, Annabelle yearned for something different, but also the same. She hoped this Halloween Night event would be her chance to unmask her true desire and find the girl she had been wanting.
Soon after her arrival at the party, Annabelle takes a few sips of bubbly champagne and begins to feel captivatingly welcomed. A woman named Trinity with deliciously red lips wearing a black mask quickly brings Annabelle to full attention. In no time, Trinity charms Annabelle onto a couch in a devil-may-care upstairs room where she seduces her into submission. Suddenly, a flash of lightening blacks out the room and Annabelle hears a bloodcurdling scream. Then, the shock of Trinity burying herself in between her thighs, the sting of long black nails in her creamy skin, and the violent clasping of fangs and those succulent red lips onto her center launch Annabelle into a nightmarish scene filled with horror and regret.
Macabre Delights is a rich story descended from the greatest works of gothic horror fiction. I enjoyed the story's classic, yet original plot line and Trinity's steamy seduction of Annabelle, of course. The plot also involves voyeurism and BDSM scenes. A touch of gore at the end makes this story a horror fiction fan's wet dream. Grant's mastery of prose packs power and purpose into every word, thereby giving Macabre Delights an appeal that will keep readers coming back.
This is a frightening Halloween read. I give Macabre Delights 5 / 5 stars.
