But there is so much more to it than that. Gary Val Tenuta has crafted a remarkable, riveting story that is almost impossible to stop reading. This one doesn't just hook you in, it throttles you with a terrifying, plausible supernatural concept rooted in a fantastic inspiration and hurtles you along mercilessly with a breathless plot that just won't quit. On top of all that, the dialogue is as natural as it comes and every character is physically and emotionally developed to living, breathing perfection. I cared deeply for every one of these people (while rooting for Crowley's ultimate demise). There are dark secrets, startling revelations, personal sacrifices and an ending you won't see coming. Tenuta paces the book cleverly, alternating between protagonist and antagonist with rare skill, and achieves a level of tension that is unbearably delicious. If I may indulge in some review cliches, I'll add that this is one nail-biting, hair-raising, edge-of-your seat supernatural thriller that rivals the best I've ever read by Stephen King, Peter Straub, or Dean Koontz. Hell, Clive Barker would be proud of this one. Yes, it's that good.
Hungry for a supernatural thriller that'll rock your world? This is the one, folks. It passed my ultimate test for all books I consider fantastic reads: I wished I had written it myself and I was sorry to see it end. Enjoy!
The story weaves effortlessly back and forth between the work of the detectives and the FBI, and an enigmatic rock star and his death-metal band Mega Therion, as a serial killer unleashes an intense rage upon members of the priesthood. Demonic forces rise as practitioners of dark magick summon them forth. The story is descriptive, unforgiving, and disturbing, as it races along a perilous course to a shocking ending.
Ash: Return of the Beast will appeal to anyone with a fascination with the occult, the paranormal, murder mysteries and police procedurals. The colorful main characters, with deep secrets of their own, bring the reader along on a macabre journey that spirals outwards to all kinds of intriguing places. From rock 'n roll to the very depths of the underworld itself, Ash is a wild ride into a shadow world you won't soon forget. Brilliantly conceived and executed - I couldn't put it down!

Although I really Enjoyed Ezekiel Code, I think that this book about the return of Aleister Crowley is even better. Val Tenuta weaves an excellent tale based in part on reality. Crowley was a real person and deemed to be epitome of evil.
This is a great price for this book. I can't wait to see what Val Tenuta cooks up next.
The story centers around a death-metal musician named Rodney Duckworth. He’s compelled by something he cannot explain to purchase a large, crumbling mansion. Within its dark walls, he discovers he’s the heir to a very evil bloodline. The dead bodies mount and Detective Kane is assigned to the case. He is paired a detective who seem s far more at home among the pentacles and gargoyles than he is and we slowly begin to see there is far more here than meets the eye. As he struggles against the forces of darkness, ancient secrets are revealed that bring the novel to a shocking conclusion.
The narrative takes a different approach to the run-of-the-mill Satanist storyline. The action builds nicely and we are drawn into the web of evil and dark revelations as the story progresses. The narrative is rich with details on magic, mystical cycles, and ancient gods and goddesses. The relationship between Kane and Ravenwood felt uninspired and I never really felt a connection to any of the characters. This left the ending a bit flat (no spoilers here). The narrative structure is based around very specific segments of time, so pay close attention or the storyline can become confusing.Read more ›
