Humanity is renowned for placing the blame for their most unspeakable actions in the palms of their "demons." It would seem that for every crime, every indecency there is a minion of the Underworld assigned to it. The lucky ones balance precariously on the edge of damnation, always managing at the last minute to halt their impending doom. The unlucky ones succumb entirely or, in Marcus Glenfield's case, find themselves following a much darker path than they ever could have imagined. After a strangely brutal twist of fate, Marcus becomes his own inner demon, that of the Demon of Regret. As he begins his new life as a tempter and collector of mortal souls, his path of damnation unfortunately crosses with that of Sonnellion, the Demon of Hatred, Cresil, the Demon of Slovenliness, Vetis, the Tempter of the Holy and finally Belial himself, the Prince of Wickedness. Through each of his interactions, Marcus gleans valuable insight into the purpose of his fellow demons within the greater hierarchy of existence, assisting his personal mission to collect the one soul that continues to preoccupy his every thought. However, will the wisdom of Hell's ancient minions be enough to save him from a deadly encounter with Belial or does Hell have another plan for Marcus altogether?
"Regret" by Gabrielle Faust is a dark and haunting work, crafted with mood and elegance. Ms. Faust is a talented storyteller, and not to be missed." - New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham
"Gabrielle Faust's Regret is just about perfect. It's a modern day cosmology, a demonic game of cat and mouse, and another winner from of horror's most accomplished voices. Treat yourself to Regret, and pain never felt so good. - Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead
