How far will one woman go for the salvation of her beloved? Mercy Barlowe's love for Sarah brings down Hell when her puritanical father discovers them together - and has his own daughter burnt at the stake. But death is not the end. A monstrous cult of shapeshifters steal Sarah's soul as part of its twisted plans to resurrect an ancient evil. To defeat them, Mercy must take on a new form...She must become a werewolf!
"Filled with cold, black woods, barely human monstrosities, and moments of almost Conan-like action, it's a full-blood, teeth-bared comic that deserves your attention." - Ain't It Cool "Mooneyham was born to draw... The book looks amazing. For her part, Deering's story resists exploitation and presents a believably tragic romance." - Comic Book Resources "Deering and company twist and reconfigure the clichEs of the genre - from vampires, to werewolves to witches - shows they've done their homework... it's that passion that enables it to be so entrancing and readable, the way great horror works always are." - Comics Bulletin "Scary, Compelling, With Killer Art!" - Justin Jordan (Green Lantern) "Fun And Disturbing!" - Joshua Hale Fialkov (I, Vampire) "A True Horror Masterpiece, Not To Be Missed!" - Decapitated Dan, Comic Related "Anathema is a return to classic horror." - Geek Girl project "Smart, and romantic and tragic and brutal and beautiful all at once, a love song to the dark woods of horror, screamed from a mountaintop against a wide, white moon. Listen closely, and join in." - SFX
