Blog Tour Review: The Tale of Raw Head & Bloody Bones by Jack Wolf

The Tale of Rawhead and Bloody Bones Book Cover

The year is 1751 and Tristan Hart, a precociously talented student of medicine is studying under the legendary Dr. William Hunter in London. Tristan is fascinated by the nature of pain and preventing it; the relationship between mind and matter and the existence of God. He is a product of the Enlightenment, a rational man on a quest to cut through darkness and superstition with the scientific method.
But that is just one side of Tristan. Tristan is also a psychopath and a deviant, obsessed with the nature of pain and causing it. A product of an age of faeries and goblins, gnomes and shape-shifters, he is on a quest to arouse the perfect scream and slay the much feared folk demon Raw Head.
