Bookworm David knows the difference between fantasy and reality…until he meets Alex.

Orphan and loner David Greene has always found solace in the dark romance written by his great-grandmother. The book and a crumbling old house on the edge of town are all that remains of his ancestry and the family he never knew. But when David meets Alex, the new owner of the house, his world spins out of control.

Alex is every bit of man and mystery David could have conjured in his wildest erotic dreams, and he is drawn into a strange romance where weirdness becomes the norm. He even begins to sense the spirit of Vincent, the novel's mysterious anti-hero, who issues a warning about the dangers of involving himself with Alex.

As Alex begins to manoeuvre and manipulate David's empty life, the question soon becomes not who is Alex, but what is Alex? And once the truth is out David discovers that the fictional world of his great-grandmother's novel was never quite so fictional after all.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of blood play.

Ash Penn

I've written stories about men loving men for as long as I can remember. In the days before computers and the internet, I used to hide my stories away convinced there was no market for women who wrote gay male fiction. Fast forward a few years (okay, quite a few years) and there's not only a market, but a whole empire out there for writers like me. I'm thrilled to be able to contribute my stories and take pride in what I write.

Many of my characters enjoy making my life as difficult as possible by refusing to take the easy pathway to love. They prefer to swagger through the undergrowth and laugh at me as I point at my story outline and demand they get back on the route I painstakingly mapped out.

Lately I've discovered it's far easier to let them dictate what happens and when, although I do get my revenge when it comes to giving them an undesirable trait or two to contend with. My characters are as flawed as their love lives, but they will usually find a kind of imperfect perfection in each other by the time I type 'The End'.

I loved the character of David, going from a shy, sexually inexperienced young man to...well, a young man who definitely becomes more aware of his sexuality and the control he has over others who desire...

Ash Penn - Interview for End of the Line

Where did the idea come from for the book being a portal to another world?


The Dark Love series is set in our world, it’s just that there’s a division between human and demon. They exist just beyond the human perception of them. End of the Line is told from the point of view of a man who has no idea the paranormal exists. Although David absorbs himself in fiction, he’s very cynical of the unknown. David is very short-sighted, and it takes someone like Alex to open his eyes to this alterative world. I also wanted to write about both worlds for different perspectives, and a series is the ideal way to do so…
