Editorial Reviews


Not your typical horror story."This is not your typical horror story. This might be more of a love storywithin a horror setting. Without giving anything away there are twomoments in the book where I felt raw emotions for the characters plightand these were very loving moments in the book. There are variousdepictions of love and loss throughout the book and they are heartfeltmoments that left me wanting more of these backstories. The other moment at the end of the book truly tugged at my heartstrings.Ienjoyed the idea of older gentlemen as the main characters of the book.Your heroes stumble through old age fighting to save the life of aninnocent. This is not your typical horror story, so throw all yourexpectations out the window because what you will find is a tale ofheroism, love, compassion and heart." A unique and thrilling horror story "Maledicus is the right hand man to Caligula, Emperor of the RomanEmpire, and they are equally despicable, inhumane and outright evil.Maledicus has plans, great plans, whereby he will ascend to the topposition of Emperor but he underestimates the incumbent, Caligula, andhis many eyes and ears. Maledicus never achieves his aspirations and isdispatched to the afterlife in an unpleasant and painful way.

Inthe non world between Heaven and Hell, Maledicus lurks. He is notreconciled to his unnatural death and believes his chance to aspire togreatness will come. He sets about manipulating events and circumstances to achieve his ultimate goals of greatness.

Meanwhile, time hasmoved on and in the 21st century, three elderly and retired men,Roosevelt, Sam and Jeremy, have formed a ghost-investigating group, with the occasional help and support from Roosevelt's nephew, ex-US Marine,Patrick. They have all suffered personal losses and this is a great wayfor them to keep themselves mental and physically active and to indulgein an interest in ghosts and the supernatural. When their InvestigativeParanormal Society ("IPS") gets its first really legitimate case, theyfind themselves up against an on-going evil that refuses to die. Can the IPS go up against an ancient and expanding evil and expect anythingother than untimely deaths?

I enjoyed the characters ofRoosevelt, Sam, Jeremy and Patrick and learning about their individuallosses and life experiences, all of which weave together into the fabric of this well planned story.

The idea behind this book is freshand clever and the ending was superb. I was really impressed by theauthor's unique and thrilling ending"
