The BookViral Review:

Dark Fantasy Horror seems steeped in mediocrity with too many copycat plots and a lack of originality so it’s always refreshing to review something a little different and with the intriguing title “The Fourth Tier” Fawn certainly delivers. Creating such a vivid sense of time and place that you truly feel transported to his underworld setting.

Deliciously dark, Fawn gives us an intriguing plot as he brings his characters to life with vivid prose and quick-fire staccato dialogue that ensures the pace rarely falters whilst impressing with his ability to make familiar generic materials fresh.

This starts with characters that pleasingly don’t conform to genre tropes. From Fawn’s protagonist Hespatia to characters like Shae, Demba and Nyeusi to beasts like Crypto they quickly get their hooks into you as a maelstrom of action and suspense lead us to the ever-darkening depths of the Fourth Tier.

As his narrative gains pace deaths are frequent and Fawn’s Fourth Tier oozes with gloomy, Lovecraftian aesthetics as he nimbly sidesteps the cliché traps many Dark Fantasy authors fall back on.

Dark Fantasy Horror is a genre defined by technique with the best authors taking their readers on visceral, pulp-infused thrill rides and on this level Fawn delivers in spades as he skillfully orchestrates his diverse cast towards a satisfyingly gripping climax.

Sure to be enjoyed by Dark Fantasy Horror fans and beyond The Fourth Tier is highly recommended!

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
