Summary

An orphan girl. A hellish spirit. A fight for more than just her life.

When Del Lareaux leaves the St. Augustine orphanage, she is desperate to build a normal life for herself and Jimmy, the mentally handicapped boy she spent years protecting.

But when a hellish spirit is raised from the dark swamps of Louisiana, abominations of unimaginable horror begin to prey on the lost souls of New Orleans, and Del’s soul is the most coveted. 

When Del learns the truth of her secret heritage, she is faced with a choice: forego the gift she was born with for the normal life she dreams of, or embrace her birthright and the dark consequences that follow.

A Grimoire Dark is an exciting new style of suspense-horror novel. Threads of Stephen King and Edgar Allen Poe weave a nightmare veil through which dark elements of a Lovecraftian horror tale are glimpsed; for, to view them directly would be one's undoing.

Dark Indeed

The story starts slowly and some patience is required but rewarded as it all comes together. The writing is "rich" and can be appreciated on its own. The dark forces of the Gris Gris Man continue to grow in strength as our main protagonist Del comes to grips with who she is and what she is becoming. Finishing with an exciting battle of good vs. evil, all the strings get tied together. I highly recommend it! The narration is excellent with difficult Creole accents, a mentally challenged boy, disembodied spirits, and more.

Fascinating

Great story telling with a very intriguing storyline. Love you bridge analogy and the in depth of the research that was probly done on the background of the voodoo. Also the Edgar Allan Poe reference.

Poe-esque

Richly dark and darkly rich. Hoodoo and voodoo abound when the Gris Gris man comes to call.
