Three friends set out to find casks of 150-year-old brandy at the bottom of a South Carolina river, not knowing that they’ve walked right into the clutches of a growing evil in the ghost town of Summerville.
“Going above and beyond the call of duty, “Suckage” delivers the full package: blood, guts, and love. With thoroughly developed characters, intriguing narration, and moral commentary, Neal creates a self-aware and refreshingly frank story likely to appeal to a variety of readers.”
“Rotgut by DT Neal was a rather frightening story… Neal gets right inside the host to realistically let you know what’s happening. Chilling to say the least!”
“D. T. Neal’s “The Wolf and the Crow” seems to be part of a larger story, in which a tyrant called the Manticore has imposed harsh laws on the people. That’s not a complaint; if this one is part of a bigger story arc, I’d like to see more about this character. Farys is a hedgeknight who rescues a woman accused of being a witch by choosing to take on the Manticore’s champion in single combat. The fight scene in this one was especially well choreographed.”
“Neal is a compelling and imaginative storyteller whose tales are richly evocative and leave the reader wondering about the story well after it’s read.”

“As an author who has written a book about a giant sea creature, I take my hat off to Neal – this guy takes us all to school in showing what it would be like to be trapped somewhere remote by something with a monstrous size, appetite and intelligence. Great work… and now to see what else he’s got!”
