Reviews The spookiest treat for Halloween’s right here. 178 pages of dark, twisted & mysterious goings on. (Jonathan Ross)
Toula Mavridou-Messer has one of the most creative minds I have ever come across. In fact, her imagination knows no bounds! (LA Writers Center)
Just. WOW. What a unique book! I loved this! This was a horror book with a mystery and a twist! (Word Forward)
For those who like their humor black, satirical and with a Gothic twist this is a must read. Tongue in cheek all the way, the book is written in a style that satirizes the very language of Victorian, Gothic horror, paying a backhanded ‘homage’ to Dickens, Poe, Stoker and the Grimm brothers with a large dash of Washington Irving’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ and the epic Beowulf, (Grendel’s mother), thrown in. Gruesomely funny! (Sara Salyers)
If you enjoy dark, but easy to read mysteries, I definitely recommend Mortal End: A Simmering Pit Of Jiggery Pokery by Toula Mavridou-Messer. This will be a great Halloween read! (Ellen P. Lafleche-christian) 
Mortal End brings together some of the best aspects of Grimm’s Fairy Tales mixed with larger than life characters in a Tim Burton-esq way and adds a dash of sexual content and some great humour all wrapped up in a fantastic writing style. (WJ Thompson)
This is a fantastic read, Macabre and funny, witty and clever, no long journey should be attempted without it! The writer couples rich and vivid language with a superb plot that keeps you guessing. (Dominic Wolf) 
This is crime fiction like no other! Fairy tales for grown ups with just enough humour to see you through the dark. (Amanda Goldman)
This is Grimm in the best way – it’s a strange and twisted murder mystery. I enjoyed this book immensely. Wonderfully Dickensian names, completely twisted logic, weirdly gorgeous descriptions – it’s a totally bonkers dark fairy tale, with fantastic twists and turns and an unexpected ending. (Ally A)
A truly delicious dark tale well worth the read. (Johnny Kyriacou)
