Publisher's Summary

Charlie Tristan Moore isn't a hero. She's a survivor. Already wrestling with the demons of her past, she is tested as never before when she arrives home one night to find herself under attack by three monstrous skinhounds straight out of a nightmare. Just as hope seems lost, she is saved by the sinister Man in Black, dressed in a long, dark coat that seems to possess a life of its own and wielding a black-bladed sword in his grisly red right hand.

But her rescue comes at a cost. The Man in Black, a diabolical Elder God, demands she become his Acolyte and embrace a dark magick she never knew she possessed. To ensure her obedience, he takes her friend and possible love, Daniel, in thrall as a hostage. Now she must join The Man in Black in his crusade to track down and destroy his fellow Elder Gods, supposedly to save humanity from being devoured for all eternity.

But is The Man in Black truly the lesser of two evils - or a menace far more treacherous than the eldritch horrors she's battling in his name?

The book may be fine but the narrator is not

I thought the book sounded interested and from the snippet I got, it is. The issue is that the narrator sounds too old, too cold and too formal for the young female protagonist and the gory descriptions within the book. This disconnect makes it hard to engage. I quit when the narrator made an eldrich abomination sound like it was talking through a mouth full of food. The No Sleep Podcast has plenty of similar stories told by believable and talented female narrators. I think they should have gotten one of them. Since they didn't, I recommend listening to that podcast over this. In a weird way, even male narrator McCloud Andrews would have been better because he can convey emotion, youth and horror well in his narration and female characters.

like a fanfiction written by a highschool student

Frustratingly insipid protagonist. Poor understanding of Lovecraft's mythos. Repetitive use of identical similes and cringey dialogue.

Pretty good

The narrator can't do male voices well, but that is my only complaint. The story is good.

At best Lovecraftian fan fiction

The plot is non-existent, the characters are lacking in depth and complexity, and the vilian(s) are mutilated forms of Lovecraft's antagonists. Reads like a teenagers fantasy of how they would be accepted into the rank and file of the Cthulhu mythos.

Lovecraftian horror not for me.

The bases of this book is from the author H.P. Lovecraft. “Lovecraftian horror is a subgenre of horror fiction that emphasizes the cosmic horror of the unknown (and in some cases, unknowable) more than gore or other elements of shock, though these may still be present. The hallmark of Lovecraft’s work is cosmicism: the sense that ordinary life is a thin shell over a reality which is so alien and abstract in comparison that merely contemplating it would damage the sanity of the ordinary person.”

Charlie Tristan Moore (the protagonist) is forced to be an Acolyte for the Lovecraft character, Nyarlathotep, he is an Elder God and Lord of Chaos. ***spoiler ***Charlie is able to see and interact with the veil. She acquired this from her maternal connection to Lovecraft. This ability drove Lovecraft mad (in this story only). Only a Lovecraft has this ability, which has to be activated.

Nyarlathotep as an elder god, does not like to share his toys. Humans are his and he is not finished playing with them. He needs to kill some other Elder Gods, because they have plans to eradicate humans from earth. This book is so steeped in the Lovecraftian universe that I have to research it to understand the nuances of the story. As a rule, I read for entertainment. If I was more familiar (discounting the narrator was horrendous) with that world, I would have enjoyed a modern version the Lovecraft universe As it was, I found it tedious.
