". . . an entertaining addition to the genre of occult fiction." -- Kirkus Reviews
Unwilling warrior Mercy O'Connor finds herself compelled to battle a malevolent warlock intent on apocalyptic chaos. Inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, this funny occult thriller finds Mercy on the campus of Miskatonic University, grappling with mastering the fine points of brutal magic known as formulae. In addition, she is beset by political correctness, scheming administrators and her own doubts and insecurities.
Aided by a country and western-loving Zulu security guard, young Mercy must adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. Can she outwit a cunning university president and violent student activists? Will Mercy muster the strength to halt a diabolical sorcerer intent on unleashing ghastly creatures upon our planet? It's pass/fail for Mercy O'Connor with the fate of Earth as prize.
