Regicide is a book I found interesting rather than gripping. There are elements of horror, but the underlying themes are guilt, darkness and death. We fear the dark because we cannot see where we are. We fear death because we cannot see what will happen. We fear what we have done during life because we see our own imperfections all too clearly.
