The Chosen

The Chosen - Jay Hartlove, Gerald Bliss Jay Hartlove's "The Chosen" is a different sort of horror story. Antiques importer Charles Redmond is convinced he's being followed by a demon -- one of his clients. He goes to see a psychiatrist about the matter; she's a Voudoun/voodoo practitioner.Hartlove is a religious scholar by hobby, according to the bio at the back of the book. His scholarship shows as he brings elements of ancient Egyptian occult practices and Voudoun into the mix of a modern-day tale. Things are always just a little bit more than what they seem in this book, and the twists and turns left me a little breathless. I didn't want to put the book down!If you're looking for something that is not the typical vampire/werewolf tale that passes for horror these days, this is the book for you!
