The author cleverly weaves you into Adam’s frustrations and hope, dreams and nightmares and, by doing so, she has created a character for you to care for. I did not want this book to end!

5* Dark and Disturbing
 on 16 August 2016

Psychological horror/thriller stories are not my usual reading genre so I was well out of my comfort zone – but pleasantly surprised by the author’s vivid imagination and the twists and turns in this book. The unpredictability keeps the reader guessing throughout this tale of a disturbed child in a dysfunctional family as we follow his progress into manhood.

The book touches on the theme of childhood bullying and produces a creepy story in which Adam (and the reader) are never sure as to whether his terrifying nightmares are an escape from reality or the truth. It is a tale of mental collapse, recovery and sinister happenings, aided by a cast of well-drawn and believable people. Among them is Adam’s mother, whose swings between love, ambition and cruelty would unhinge any normal child – but Adam is not normal and he doesn’t fit in anywhere, not even within his own family.

The dark and disturbing story is all the more fascinating for being told through his somewhat warped viewpoint.

Adams cross is a dark psychological thriller, although Adam is evil in his way you are left hoping something good would happen to him. This is a great un-putdown-able read. I am hoping their will be a third book having read ‘Kane’s Cross’ I look forward to following them to America.

This is a well-crafted psychological thriller packed full of twists and turns in a plot that lingers in your subconscious long after you finish reading. You definitely want Adam to like you and be your friend! The characters are perfectly drawn and develop naturally along with the story line, which is unforced and captivating. The character of Adam has suffered and his internal struggles are revealed as you are drawn into his world and experiences. What I enjoyed the most was that the author pulled all the loose ends together for the reader in the end, something that sometimes is lacking in books of this genre. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

There aren’t many books which I’ve found so hard to put down, but this one went to bed with me, bathed with me and I even managed to cook and eat dinner while still reading it.
The story is creepy and horrifying at times, but set in a modern day normal lifestyle making it real and uncomfortable, loving and heart breaking.
The characterisation of the mother is brilliantly done. Such a complicated, mood swinging woman is often hard to pull off genuinely, but this author has not only nailed this realistically, she has also created perfect interaction with how the other characters respond it this woman. In particular her son, Adam, who the story is primarily about.
Without spoiling the plot, Adam is understandably messed up by his family life and strange tales and myths of his elders and ancestors. His world is full of secrets and dark places. He suffers much loss and mental strain not helped by visions and a very creepy talking doll!
I’d love to tell you more, but then you wouldn’t need to read what the future has waiting for Adam to deal with.

Adam’s Cross by Elizabeth Wixley is a highly original psychological horror that kept me glued to every page desperate to turn the next. I loved this book on so many levels – depth of character, childhood bullying, surviving a rough upbringing and then wow – adulthood revelations.
Look into the darkness of the human psyche, which lies behind Adam’s eyes. Adam as a child believes he is the perpetrator behind a number of mysterious deaths. Is Adam a child serial killer?
Surviving a chaotic childhood, he enters adulthood as a successful musician with a sublime talent, which mesmerises his audiences. Fearing the axe of his past is about to drop he begins to confront the traumatic shadows of his childhood, only to discover a far more sinister secret.
This psychological horror is an absolute must read and very highly recommended.

Wow! What a story. I couldn’t put this book down. The characters were fascinating and the story intriguing. It’s the sort of story, which sticks in your head a long time after you’ve put it down. It’s a haunting and compelling read. I shall now be reading this authors’ other books.

On the surface this book is a thrilling psychological mystery but as you get further into the story it deepens and darkens. The characters although dark and warped, were very convincing. Especially, Adam who was one of the most interesting characters I have ever read about. This book was a fast read and left me craving more. I would highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy dark, paranormal mysteries.

5* Original and Totally Different!

By Pizzazz Book Reviews on 5 Jan. 2015
I glanced at the first few pages and was absolutely hooked! I could not put this book down. I had to keep reading right to the end. This book was a surprise because it goes in directions that you can’t predict. It is almost as if you are looking through Adam’s eyes as a child and then as a young man. If you want to read something original and quite different then this is the book for you. I really hope the author writes a sequel! A stunning read Ms. Wixley!
