Product Description

"The third entry in the Murder Ballads and Whiskey series, REVELATIONS, is a punch to the gut that feels glorious."-Dale Herring, GEEKDOM OF GORE

Sometimes a battle between good and evil doesn't look much like the ones they show in movies.

The good guys don't always wear white, and they don't always walk away with the win.

And sometimes you're better off with the devil you know.

The last time Preston went down to the crossroads, his best friend died and he nearly lost his brother. But Old Scratch doesn't take kindly to fools, especially not those who come knocking at his front door. And before all is said and done, he's going to teach Preston a thing or two about what it really means to sacrifice.

Let Raw Dog Screaming Press author Jason Jack Miller take you to a place where love is forever even when death isn't, where magic doesn't have to be seen to be believed, where a song might be the only thing that saves your soul.

MURDER BALLADS AND WHISKEY is a unique, literary, blend of dark fiction, paranormal urban fantasy and horror. It's Appalachian Gothic, Alt.Magical.Realism, Hillbilly Horror. It's AMERICAN GODS meets JUSTIFIED. TRUE BLOOD with witches. It's Johnny Cash with a fistful of copperheads singing the devil right back to hell. THE REVELATIONS OF PRESTON BLACK is your ticket into a world where love can save your soul, where a song can change your destiny, and where evil still hides in the dark corners of the night.

Book Review: The Revelations of Preston Black by Jason Jack Miller

Blu Gilliand for FEARNET.COM

Jason Jack Miller continues his fascinating exploration of ancient Appalachian magic, the power of music, and the war for a man’s soul with The Revelations of Preston Black, the third book in his “Murder Ballads and Whiskey” series.

If you haven’t read the first two in that series, The Devil and Preston Black and Hellbender, I strongly urge that you do so. Revelations works just fine as a stand-alone novel, but the events covered here are deeply entwined in those first two books. You’ll appreciate what’s going on here more, and you’ll thank me for introducing you not to just one good book, but a whole trifecta.

The events of this book kick off when touring musician Preston Black, on stage with his creative partner and lover Katy Stefanic, references a deal with the devil. As we all know, demonic references span music history from the crossroads of Robert Johnson to the bat-biting antics of Ozzy Osbourne and up to present day. That they’ve been around for a while doesn’t make them any more popular with certain groups, however, and Black’s remark puts him and Katy both square in the crosshairs of a preachin’ man by the name of Elijah Clay Hicks. Hicks has an army of believers and the Good Word at his disposal, and he’s not afraid to wield them both in the name of righteousness.

Katy disappears, and Black, naturally, goes after her. But his hunt takes him far beyond the dirt roads of Mississippi and Alabama – he’s got to go a little darker, a little deeper, and he does just that in an absolutely riveting “baptism” scene that really kicks Revelations into overdrive. Black is soon joined on his mission by some unusual allies, including a trio of dead legends in Johnny Cash, John Lennon and Joe Strummer – men who speak to Black through their music (and, when time is of the essence, text messaging).
