The Darkness Holds Sway

is the first collection of short stories from Lord Buford Somerset as he emancipates himself from his hideous fate, portrayed in the novel Entwined.

Lord Somerset writes to hold on to his sanity and alleviate his woes, in the process giving us a peek into his frenzied and terrifying mind. Somerset touches the abyss and it seizes his hand, and he scribes away ten dark fantasies for the world to behold – tales where possession leads to mass murder, loss of love metamorphoses into insanity and eventually necrophilia, and where cannibalism is the apex of romantic love.
