This is the second volume of Peter Levenda’s Lovecraft Trilogy. Following The Lovecraft Code, Levenda here probes deeper into the mysteries of Professor Gregory Angell, Yezidi seeress Jamilia, and Detective Cuneo of post-Katrina New Orleans. All are fighting the nightmare denizens of a terror cell desperately seeking The Necronomicon, as well as a top secret US government intelligence agency.
This book will thrill ancient aliens fans, Lovecraft aficionados, all readers who enjoy well-crafted fiction. It is supported by genuine scholarship among occultists, terrorists, military leaders and intelligence agents. Based on the themes in H. P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror, this novel continues the earlier depiction of a struggle between two forces: not of Light versus Darkness—but of Us versus Them.
What secret is buried so deeply within human DNA that exposing its mysteries would serve only to undermine humanity’s most cherished institutions?
And what secret is encoded within an ancient book of magic that, once deciphered, would cause the eruption of a force so prehistoric that its earthly temples—once submerged beneath the seas—will rise to the surface once again?
From the Midwest Book Review:
Synopsis: Beginning with the harrowing experience of an alien abductee in a small New England town and continuing through a series of encounters with a renowned mathematician, mercenary geneticists, an international ring of pornographers, the human trafficking cult of the Islamic State, and practitioners of an arcane form of sexual occultism, “Dunwich” by Peter Levenda is a fascinating saga that follows the adventures of religion professor Gregory Angell as he attempts to discover a shocking secret encoded within an ancient book of magic that, once deciphered, will cause the eruption of a force so prehistoric that its earthly temples (once submerged beneath the seas) will rise to the surface again!
Critique:”Dunwich: A Novel” is based on the themes in H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Dunwich Horror” and is the continuation of Peter Levenda’s novel “The Lovecraft Code”. Esoteric, suspenseful, and horrifying, “Dunwich” is very highly recommended for community library and personal collections.
