    1. Evil never truly dies. It may sleep for centuries, only to reawaken when innocent souls least expect it. Yet, once such malevolence has made its mark - permeating the lives of modern people and filling their hearts with abject fear - it is always difficult to fully eradicate its touch; even among people who have never dreamed that the supernatural might actually exist.While on sabbatical somewhere in the south of France - in the beautifully remote village of Saint-Bertrand - medieval history pro [...]

    2. I picked this book up because the writer cited M.R. James as an influence. With definite echoes of 'Count Magnus' (alluded to in the acknowledgments), Rhodes weaves together a story in which perhaps none of the individual elements are totally original, but which does justice to its source material. A strong sense of atmosphere, rich characterisation, excellent pacing. Better still, a horror novel with a serious, measured conception of evil and a glimpse at an elemental battle between that evil a [...]

    3. This was entertaining in parts but it was kind of boring in others. It kind of reminded me of a Hammer film, except French. Good concept and the writing was fine, just slow.

    4. -Un mal terrible y prisionero durante años, queda libre… vaya, qué cosas pasan…- Género. Narrativa fantástica. Lo que nos cuenta. Mientras se cava un pozo para surtir de agua la residencia de la Costa Azul que han alquilado el profesor John McTell y su esposa Linden, una mansión construida a los pies de una montaña rematada por un antiguo castillo, se libera algo arcano y malvado, relacionado con unos templarios sacrílegos para más señas.¿Quiere saber más del libro, sin spoilers?

    5. Un terror muy clásico y simple. Sin pretensiones y narración correcta. Se lee muy brevemente al tener pocas páginas, es aquí te pillo y aquí te mato. La historia: una pareja se muda a un pueblo para su tranquilidad esperada que no encontrada. En el hay un ser recientemente despertado, que dará por saco a los habitantes y en especial a estos novios. Las escenas no son terroríficas, y realmente tiene poco de terror. No hay sangre, no hay sustos, no hay ambientación. Ideal para iniciarse en [...]

    6. I really liked those well paced horror story on a evil knights templar. The setting in France, the discovery of the hidden well. The acting characters were extremely well carved out. Reading the book was like watching a quite scary movie. I also liked the ending. An extremely tense and captivating book. A clear recommendation. 80s horror at its best!

    7. Next, After Lucifer 3/5 StarsI felt this book had a lot of potential. The story was really interesting, and well planned out. The big downside was the ending. It was very rushed, and most of the big events happened off camera so to speak. I'd be interested in reading more from this author in the future!

    8. A thick slice of 80s horror boom mass market fiction. Sexy, saucy, Monty Jamesy!Review:jayrothermel/2018

    9. Este libro no ofrece absolutamente nada nuevo al género del horror: ya saben, una vieja maldición que pesa sobre un lugar, descubrimientos accidentales, posesiones demoníacas, la lucha del bien contra el mal, etcétera sin embargo resulta bastante entretenido. Básicamente el libro trata acerca de un brujo templario que fue enterrado cerca de su fortaleza, pero que antes de morir, a través de sus artes negras, había conquistado el poder sobre la vida eterna. Entonces, varios siglos después [...]

    10. Should have been a short story. Written in 1987.The Prologue was good. Henri Taillou douses successfully for water and unearths a stone with some Latin writing on it. Despite premonitions, he excavates it, brings water to fill the pool in a house so he can rent it. His not-too-bright son is the only witness.Father Etien Boudrie has kept the local church for 23 years, where there is also a stone with some Latin writing on it, having to do with the ruins on the hill / mountain up behind the town, [...]

    11. Not bad. Creepy locale. Gruesome when it needs to be. Good for a few hours of entertainment. I wouldn't mind reading more from this author.

    12. This is not a deep book but there certainly is suspense. It's a page-turner. I'm not so sure, though, that a kiss would make it all go away . . .
