Only She Could Free the President from a Sorcerer's Spell! Raven has been convicted of the murder of Peter Morgan and is serving a life sentence, when she is visited by Magbertius the evil sorcerer in his guise as Peter Johnson. He tells her that he is going to become the emperor of the world and wants her to be his empress. She tell him to get lost and is threatened by him. But, she is also visited by Jack Grant Deputy Director of Homeland Security. He makes a deal to arrange for her and her new-found friend Annie B to get released from prison if she will help him on a case. Grant tells her that since the president's new advisor, Nicholas Machevelli, has been appointed, the president has been acting strangely, proposing bills contrary to his beliefs, taking more power to himself and declaring war on a friendly nation. The agent wants Raven to find out how this Machevelli is controlling the president. Soon Raven finds she is up to her neck in a deadly plot involving demons, rival sorcerers, secret agents, murderous politicians and The Necronomicon. As Raven parries magic and follows up clues, her path leads to an isolated mansion on a remote island. There she will face dangers and challenges greater than any before, with the fate of the world resting on her very unlikely survival.
A word from Joe Vadalma to REB readers:
"If you are a fan of H.P. Lovecraft like me, haven't you ever wondered exactly what was in the book entitled The Necronomicon? I know I have. In addition, there were these references to the Cult of Cthulhu, a name impossible to pronounce. Of course, the fun of it is to speculate and wonder, and not know for sure. Of course, as an author of fantasy, science-fiction and dark fantasy, I could not help attempting to imitate the master. What fun it was to write The Laws of Magic which takes some of the elements I used in my other novels, such as witchcraft and the occult and mix in a little Lovecraftian lore. In the Laws of Magic, a detective, called in by a mysterious young woman to solve the case of a missing professor, finds himself transported by the Necronomicon into a fantastic underground other-dimensional world where he menaced by Lovecraftian and other monsters and nightmarish creatures."
