    page turner!

    Sorcerer is well written, keeping you on the edge of your seat through out. The characters are full of life and you feel you really know them. Huggins shows you how the devil really works, and how his evil can work to penetrate the human mind.

    Fantastic

    After almost a quarter of a century as a Special Forces Officer and a police detective, Michael Thorn takes an early retirement to spend his time with his family. He buys a mansion in Cedar Ridge, Massachusetts thirty miles from Salem but on his very first night in their new home, Thorn hears a funny noise in the basement.------ When he knocks down the wall where the noise is coming from Thorn finds a skeleton with silver manacles around his hands and writing on them. When the police arrive the skeleton is missing. The local priest feels that something evil was here and soon they figure out that the skeleton was that of Jannes, the magician of Egypt defeated by Moses. The sorcerer made a pact eons ago with a demon of immense power and now that he is free, he intends to rule just like he did in Ancient Egypt. Priests, nuns, the Assassini warriors of the church and Thorn work together to defeat this evil but are the faith of God¿s warriors strong enough to defeat this undead sorcerer?------ This novel is a fantastic supernatural good vs. evil thriller in which the antagonist uses dark magic while the heroes counter with the power of prayer. Thorn is an amazing protagonist who calmly accepts the fact that he will have to fight a supernatural evil that has seen many civilizations rise and fall. There are plenty of battle scenes but the best part of SORCERER is the characters. The humans are very realistic and portrayed as ordinary people called to do something that could get them killed yet all are willing to do so in order that evil doesn¿t gain a stronger foothold on earth than it already has. James Byron Huggins¿ message to his readers, cleverly imbued in the storyline, is that with faith all things are possible----- Harriet Klausner

    I Also Recommend:

    "Sorcerer" is Chilling and Thrilling

    "Sorcerer" is another brilliant work of JBH. The story begins with M. Thorn, an ex detective looking to retire early and enjoy some much deserved time with his family. He buys an old Victorian mansion near Salem, MA thinking he's put in his time fighting, sacrificing and so on. Well, not to be. He & his family move in only to find the local people consider the house taboo and perilously haunted. It has a grisly history of its owners going missing and mysteriously winding up dead. So, Thorn is not long in finding that while there's no skeleton in the closet per se, he DOES find one in an ancient tomb in the basement. He calls the police only to bring them back to the cave,...w/ said skeleton gone. From their things quickly spiral into a mad race to stop this skeleton, (whom we discover to be Jannes, the formidable Sorcerer from Egypt who faced off against Moses eons past) and his dread followers from regaining their powers and destroying/enslaving mankind.
    The Sorcerer, for being and undead foe, actually is an amazingly well developed villain. Yes, he is the archetype in the sense that he weaves evil spells, kills people and relishes in terrifying his victims to death and so forth, but you also get inside his head, hearing his thoughts and seeing his recollections of his life, and it adds another dimension to his character. Thorn is interesting and likable as the unwilling hero. He has deep reservations about trusting an invisible God and it takes a secret society of warrior priests, the Assisni, showing up on his doorstep to help him fight the Sorcerer to get his faith going. The Assisni are formidable warriors and it's thrilling and inspiring to see them call upon God in prayer for the supernatural power to fight the Sorcerer and his undead followers. The battles are great, the messages of faith and the reality of evil and the factualness of sorcery and the real dangers it does present to mankind are tangible and drive the point home I think. As an ex Wiccan/satanic witch/psychic I'm glad that Huggins had the courage to address this very important issue. He shows that while dark magic is a reality and one that DOES still exist today, we can fight off satan's attacks in all their forms with the power of God because His power is greater. Anyways, this is a brilliant book. The characters are all complex and believable, the plot interesting and heart pounding, the tensions paramount. It has a chilling factor too, when the Sorcerer awakens and summons his followers. You SEE the powers of good and evil war against each other, and everything (the world) that is at stake. The warrior priests are brave, the head priest faithful and wise and the professor steady and insightful. They all play an important role, and the final confrontation between Thorn and the Sorcerer (and Thorn w/ his own doubts) is fantastic. Get this high adreniline read by JBH, this is for Christian and non-Christian alike.
