Ravenmocker is a fast-paced, historically accurate, horror novel about an ancient Cherokee demon reawakened and set loose upon today's world with dreadful results. |
The most brutal serial killer the FBI has ever encountered is murdering descendents of a particular Cherokee tribe. As the number of bizarre killings spread across the Southern United States, authorities are clueless. Their tribal search leads them to Steven Waters and his cousin, Morgan Roberts. Morgan, recently discharged from the Army under questionable circumstances, is reluctantly drawn into the situation. He is forced to confront the very things he most fears: his past, his heritage and returning to his mountain home. The last great tribal shaman tells Morgan the killer is an inhuman demon, a "Ravenmocker," one of the most horrible beings from ancient Cherokee legend. Once, perhaps still, these powerful beings roamed the high mountain peaks and valleys of the Appalachians, preying on the people who could do little to stop them. Morgan's infirm hold on modern logic and science makes it difficult for him to accept such ideas. He is forced to choose between what he knows to be real in his mind and what his heritage suggests could be real in his heart. It's left to Morgan and Steven to stop the killings before they become victims themselves.
