The Descendant by Bob Freeman - Book Tour

By 3:00 AM , , , ,

Welcome to a blog tour that will bring you thrills and chills in the heart of the holiday season with the Descendant Blog Tour featuring the Occult Detective himself, Bob Freeman!

A supernatural thriller that readers of horror will also love, Descendant includes several original illustrations from Bob Freeman! The novel is interrelated with Bob’s short story collection First Born: Tales of the Liber Monstrorum, but can be read on its own.

A great opportunity to explore fascinating subject matter with a true expert who is a highly-respected lecturer on paranormal & supernatural topics!

About the author: Bob Freemanis an author, artist, and paranormal adventurer whose previous works include Shadows Over Somerset, Keepers of the Dead, and First Born.

A lifelong student of mythology, folklore, magic, and religion, Freeman has written numerous short stories, articles, and reviews for various online and print publications and is a respected lecturer on the occult and paranormal phenomena.

He lives in rural Indiana with his wife Kim and son Connor.

Book Synopsis for Descendant:  Descendant is a supernatural thriller filled with daring action, adventure, and artifice set against the backdrop of a very familiar world – but it is a world in which preternatural entities, clandestine magical orders, ancient bloodlines, and unholy alliances converge within the shadowed recesses of our darkest imaginings.

Federal Agents Selina Wolfe and Martin Crowe are called in to investigate a series of bizarre deaths in a small rural community. What first seems to be a misadventure involving black magic and satanic ritual soon takes on even more deleterious overtones, as the agents become embroiled in a plot by a sinister cabal intent on unleashing Hell on Earth.

If you found yourself stranded in any supernatural/horror story (or TV show or movie), which one would you prefer it to be, and why?

What a great question... I think, push come to shove, I would want to end up in Katherine Kurtz Adept stories.

Are you familiar?

Lammas Night (1983)
The Adept (1991) w/ Deborah Turner Harris
The Lodge of the Lynx (1992) w/ Deborah Turner Harris
The Templar Treasure (1993) w/ Deborah Turner Harris
Dagger Magic (1995) w/ Deborah Turner Harris
"Obligations" Tales of the Knights Templars (1995)
Death of an Adept (1996) w/ Deborah Turner Harris
"Restitution" On Crusade: More Tales of the Knights Templar (1998)

Excluding Lammas Night, the stories' main protagonist is a psychiatrist, Dr. Adam Sinclair, who is an occult detective of sorts, locked in a war of good versus evil as heir to magical powers and knowledge handed down from the ancients. The series is a terrific blend of historical fiction, occult thriller, and detective mysteries.

Kurtz (and Harris) masterfully construct a world not unlike our own, but populated by magical orders wielding white and black magic, in a mystical game of chess. Sinclair is erudite and resourceful, and the authors are quite knowledgeable about Freemasonry, ritual magic, and various psychic and magical practices that really make the books come alive, especially if you're well-versed in these sort of things.

It's positively criminal that these books are not more widely read and I can't recommend them highly enough.
