Gary McMahon has crafted a satisfying, self-contained story which works on several levels. It’s a smart, fast-paced action-adventure. It’s a heist-gone-wrong romp where the bad guys (and some of the good guys) get a gruesome comeuppance. It’s an exploration of maturity, of accepting the responsibilities of adulthood. It’s an occult conspiracy a la Aleister Crowley or Dennis Wheatley.
So mash up The Long Good Friday and Rosemary’s Baby and… well, you’re close. But Reaping the Dark tells its own tale.

There's more thoughts about it here:

But overall Reaping The Dark was a thoroughly enjoyable read. It doesn’t demand the commitment of a full-length novel but proved more satisfying than most short stories. In retrospect, I’m not entirely certain that all aspects of the plot hold up when you go back and think them through… but while I was in the moment I was having too good a time to really care.
I’ll be adding Gary McMahon to my list of enjoyable authors.

7/10
