Format: Paperback
I picked up this book after reading a synopsis of it on another site, and I'm glad I did. I couldn't put it down after I started reading it. The basic plot is this: a man, Marduc Rouen, escapes the Inquisition in 13th century France(where heretics and witches are burned alive), but must watch his mother and friends die at the hands of the French monarchy. Disillusioned and angered at God, he is given an opportunity by the Devil to punish those responsible for the mass killings. Unfortunately, this opportunity comes with a price. In exhange for his vengeance, Marduc must surrender his soul and is turned into a
witch, forced to kill and each the flesh of those around him. This book traces his plight to escape the Devil, keep his horrible secret from others, and come to terms with his sudden immortality, and his desire for flesh. It covers 4 centuries and concludes with the Salem Witch trials in America. To say the least, it was an exhausting read. There's hardly a moment when something isn't happening. The above synopsis is only a portion of the book. The plot is much more complex. It's filled with vivid imagery, historical facts mixed with fiction, and great characters. It's very well written (almost poetic at times) and
researched. I've never heard of the author before, but he (or she) has a way with building suspense. During many scenes of tension, the scene is brilliantly played out, with each nuance and movement brought to life, the suspense drawn out to the point that it's almost as if you're in the scene, watching it happen. Be warned though, it's extremely violent and graphic, but I highly recommend it to anyone who likes historical/gothic horror stories. I can't wait to read more of this person's work.
