"A very exciting work of horror"
As a child, Jonathan was very spiritually inclined and
the private catholic school he attended only reinforced
that belief. He received the Eucharist and was moved to
have the blood and flesh of Christ in his system. When he
started to question the church doctrine, he started eating
his own flesh, a practice he continued into adulthood.
When he married he kept his fetish hidden from his wife but
eventually she discovered his dark secret.
Unwilling to obtain help he slowly ate his wife until
she died from her wounds. At that point in Jonathan's
life, Yakul (Satan) comes into his life to claim Jonathan
as one of his followers. Jonathan resists Yakuh's call
refusing to eat any more flesh but once the devil has his
hooks in you it is almost impossible to obtain freedom from
his influences. Jonathan tries fighting Yakul and his
minions every step of the way but the Devil has weapons in
his arsenal that strike at Jonathan's scarred soul.
Mary Ann Mitchell has written a very exciting horror
novel that is so scary it will force the reader to sleep
with the lights on. The novel starts out like a thriller
but quickly changes into the supernatural tale that fans of
both genres will want to read. This refreshingly occult
work is not ambrosia for the soul or faint of heart, but
instead Ambrosial Flesh is for those readers who relish a
frightening horror tale.
