I am over the moon to be joining in with Mark Tilbury’s The Revelation Room blog tour! 🙂
Many thanks to Sarah Hardy, at Bloodhound Books, for the invitation to take part.
(written 24th May)
Having read the outstanding book, The Abattoir of Dreams by Mark Tilbury (The Abattoir of Dreams by Mark Tilbury @MTilburyAuthor @Bloodhoundbook #BlogTour #BookReview #AuthorInterview), fairly recently, I was very much looking forward to reading his other books and I haven’t been disappointed by The Revelation Room. This is the first in the Ben Whittle series and was re-launched by Bloodhound books on 25th May.
If you haven’t read this book already, then I highly recommend that you do, if you like a good psychological thriller.
Mark Tilbury seems to have a knack for creating seriously disturbing, psychopathic characters who make my skin crawl and who I could quite gladly punch in the face repeatedly (and I’m not a violent person, honestly!). Edward Ebb is one of those characters. He is a particularly sick character. I can’t abide people who cause pain and suffering to others and claim they are doing so in the name of Jesus. It makes me so angry! Ebb is the leader of a cult called The Sons and Daughters of Salvation and claims to help people rid themselves of sin and live to serve Jesus, when in fact he is a control freak with serious Mummy issues who thrives on causing pain whilst contradicting everything he preaches to others.
When Ben’s father is captured, whilst trying to trace a missing girl, believed to have joined the cult, Ben’s only option to rescue his father and the girl is to join the cult himself. Nothing could prepare him for the things he would witness there and what he would be subjected to. Will any of them make it out alive?
I know this is fiction, but It’s scary to think that there are these kinds of cults, and individuals, existing in the real world, brainwashing vulnerable people in to committing evil. It’s just terrifying.
The Revelation Room is another brilliantly written book. Mark Tilbury’s writing just flows perfectly making it easy to read, despite the not so pleasant subject matter and often gruesome descriptions. An excellent start to a new series.
Mark Tilbury is now one of my favourite authors and I’ve already started Book 2 in this series, The Eyes Of The Accused. I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it, but you’ll find out during the blog tour 🙂
Many thanks to the author, publisher and Sarah Hardy, at Bloodhound Books, for my ARC and for inviting me to be a part of the blog tour.

Ben Whittle’s father, a private investigator, has been taken captive by a cult whilst investigating the case of a missing girl. When Ben receives a desperate call from his father asking for help he is drawn into a dark underground world.
As Ben retraces the last known steps of the missing girl he discovers his only option left is to join the cult and rescue his father from the inside.
The leader of the cult, Edward Ebb, is a psychopathic egocentric who uses his position to control his small group of followers in The Sons and Daughters of Salvation. When he initiates Ben into the group it soon becomes apparent how sick and twisted Ebb is.
Ben must find his father and the missing girl, but the odds are stacked against him and time is running out.
Can Ben rescue his father and the girl and escape with his life? And what is the gruesome secret concealed in the Revelation Room?
The Revelation Room is the first in a new series of psychological mystery thrillers.

About the author…..
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
After serving in the Royal Navy and raising his two daughters after being widowed, Mark finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused.
He’s always had a keen interest in writing, and is extremely proud to have his third novel, The Abattoir of Dreams, published, and The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused re-launched, by Bloodhound Books.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found trying and failing to master blues guitar, and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.
