Unsatisfied with the ancient grimoires, the Magus made his own. Unsatisfied with the ancient demons, the Magus made Beatrysel. She was a creature of love. But there is no love without hate, no light without darkness, no loyalty without betrayal. And demons are greedy for flesh.
BEATRYSEL is a story of power and hubris, jealousy, love, and magick. Murder and sacrifice. It is a modern Faust set in the American Northwest where the cold winter rain melts the barriers between what is real and what is more real. It is a battle between power-hungry magicians, serial killers and jilted dying lovers.
BEATRYSEL might be called a supernatural occult thriller or a horror. Or a love story. It takes place in modern day Portland Oregon and follows the recovery of Julian Cormac, the magus who went too far. It’s a love story become horror as the creature created to be the personification of love itself is ripped away and pressed into service by more malignant magicks.
Thriller buffs, paranormal enthusiasts, horror readers, and fans of the occult will all find much to like in BEATRYSEL as will anyone who has ever had love go bad. BEATRYSEL is akin to some of John Saul’s supernatural thrillers in tenor and mood. Thematically, it echoes Frankenstein and Faust. The pages chill the reader while drawing them into dreamlike visions of shifting psychological realities described by modern occult philosophy. It is a thriller where a detective hunts a serial killer whose motives and means are beyond anything she can understand. It is the story of a magician who let it loose. It is a story of love in its many terrifying forms.
