"horror at its finest and most eerie -- so vivid it easily could become a movie."
When Prince Fresacas returned from the Crusades, he was
horrified to learn that much of the land he was to inherit
is in the hands of the evil Karth. Fresacas' father King
Haggert lost more land, but with the return of the prince
and the loyal vassals, they expect to regain that what was
taken from them. The fighting is fierce, but the Prince's
forces seem destined to win until Karth unleashes a magical
demon dog. King Haggert obtained the services of the same
sorcerer who trained Karth. He was given a supernatural
creature who would destroy the devilish canine. The
remains of both otherworldly creatures are sent to an
isolated spot in the New World.
In a modern American town, two firefighters hunting in the
woods come across an isolated grave with a cross in it.
They dig up the grave and open up the burlap bag containing
the devil dog's bones only to watch the remains transform
into something else that will make the serial killer that
is loose on the town look like a house pet.
This is horror at its finest and most eerie, a must read
for lovers of the genre as Nancy Gideon always thrills.
Fans of her vampire novels will love her move into true
genre horror. The transfer from medieval Europe to modern
day America is smooth and seamless as the reader obtains
two related books for the price of one novel that is so
vivid it easily could become a movie.
