Ebook on Amazon - Ash: The Return of the Beast, by Gary Val Tenuta, review by ellen george








It has been a long time since I have written a review. I have published one book, and am 3/4 way through with my BIG novel, but I have read several books that just needed reviewing. I shall review Lila Pinord's excellent new book soon, but this is time to talk about another scary book...


Imagine if you will...

A misunderstood magician or evil occult genius? named Aleister Crowley. The British Press indeed called him 'The Wickedest Man In The World." He died in 1947, and was cremated and placed in in an urn and sealed. His remains remained (pun intended, sorry) a mystery until present day. But in the meantime, ah, unsettling things happen to tenents of the house...until Rodney Duckworth, rock super-star took the house.

Murders, gruesome murders, also described by Mr. Tenuta, are happening, and Seattle Police Detective Brian Kane gets on the case. An FBI agent, Rowena Ravenwood, appears and aids Kane in what seems to be murders of occult origin. Rowena is an expert on the occult, and they find this is somehow connected to Crowley's ashes...but how??

Mr. Tenuta, who wrote the wonderful The Ezekiel Code, scares the reader at every turn of the page. I read just before I go to bed. I had to change that habit! Mr. Tenuta also is great at his research, and occult knowledge, and that's what makes this ebook so magnificently scary and excellent.

You cannot fathom the ending until the last page; this is not a book for the faint of heart. It is graphic. It is fillied with magick, it is at times drawing one into the evil, but it it pardon my speech, one hell of a book.
And this is one book to be scared for!

One comment for Mr. Tenuta - please do not take so long between books!!

Amazing read!!
