[Featured] Masquerading as a gentlemanly bachelor living in Victorian England, Joseph Redding is a fraud amongst the living. After splitting from his partner in unspeakable, underground crimes, he must now pay the price for disturbing the dead.
When a ghastly spectre reveals itself to him one night in hospital, he finds himself hurled into an abstract streak of mysteries and homicides that will begin to unravel his fictitious existence.

And it seems everyone is on to him...
So begins the sinister fate of Joseph Redding as he is lured down a one-way path of paranormal horror, of secrets, and wanton desire.

Wow! That was simply wonderful! :D It gives a nice glimpse of what to expect on the story :D I just love that rise and fall of the tone, it's like something sinister would suddenly come out XD

Writing Redding really rocks reeling readers (say five times fast)
As I'm now on a streak of binge-reading all Wattpad TBR books on my list, I'm going to be restarting this (because I stopped I think two chapters in because of *drumroll please* SCHOOL)...but before that I'd just like to say how happy I am that others appreciate Ben Barnes like I do~
Really stunning, it just makes me want to go on read and see and be in the world of Redding. Loved it.
You composed this?! Damn. That's amazing. I'm about to make everybody in my apartment listen haha.
