By Jeremy Robert Johnson & Alan M. Clark
"Using Alan M. Clark's gorgeously dark fantastique artwork to springboard the lush, compelling, often raw storyline forward, Johnson and Clark have created a unique literary atmosphere full of dread and wonder. This is a synergistic fusion of major talents that seethes with the black, beautiful energy of nightmares made real."—Tom Piccirilli, author of Headstone City and A Choir of Ill Children
"What makes Siren Promised such a towering achievement is the rare skill that both men possess to transform their personal experiences into a work of such visionary power. It's harrowing, it's horrific, it's moving, and it's mesmerizing."
“I have just one word for you – DAMN! [T]he authors make you live through it, rather than just read about it. The power of Clark and Johnson working together is in their ability to blur the lines in the tale and touch you where it counts. By the time I was done reading I was wondering about the purpose in my own life; they left me with an emptiness I didn’t even know existed.”
“Siren Promised is a page-turner. Johnson and Clark are masters of their crafts and have turned in a gripping, frightening piece of work that shows that real life, the people we know, and we ourselves can be more horrifying than any made-up monster or ghoul.” —Verbicide #13
“I don’t know if Mr. Johnson sold his soul to the devil to give him this gift for nightmare imagery, but by god, this guy can write… Siren Promised is a tale of addiction and legacy and rebirth. It is spontaneous and compelling. Dark, sordid characters, bound together like weaving vines of a bog rose. A haunting tale that will surprise you constantly. I recommend it highly.” —Cemetery Dance Weekly
