    Midwest Book Review -- Mayra Calvani

    Salem, 1692. At the Magistrate¿s House, a young red-headed woman named Patience Gladstone is in trial for witchcraft. Among the present is a mysterious tall blond stranger whose gaze seems keenly fixed on an amulet which rests on the table of evidence¿an exceptional-looking crystal that holds the ¿blemish¿ of a perfectly five-pointed star within it¿ the same star which, to the people¿s horror, marks the skin of Patience Gladstone behind her ear. The atmosphere of tension rises at the trial when another figure appears, at least seven feet tall and as broad as two men standing abreast, his face as hideous as that of a demon from hell. As the demon lunges himself against the tall blond stranger, panic spreads among the crowd, the sheriff raises his flintlock, and a thunderous explosion is heard. Immediately after this scene the reader is transported to the old town cemetery, year 1992. Crystal Donovan, a young journalist for the Salem Gazette, is at a turning point in her life. At her grandmother¿s burial, she is given a strange crystal amulet which she is told she must guard with her life. She is also urged to remember and recite an old poem her grandmother taught year years ago. Crystal¿s mind is plagued with haunting, troubling questions. What does the poem mean? Why is the star on the amulet so similar to her own birthmark? Does her full name¿Crystal Patience Gladstone Donovan, have something to do with it? What, in fact, is her mission, and why does it seem so imminent? As Crystal searches for these answers, an exciting series of events follow¿a horrible murder, running from demons, being transported back in time and then forward into the future. A different array of interesting characters¿including Crystal¿s dog, an adorable Doberman who maintains his important role throughout the book¿non-stop action and plot twists will keep readers turning those pages late into the night. Witch hunters, demons, malfunctioning time machines, evil scientists and bloodthirsty creatures from the future¿ In the midst of so much adversity, will Crystal fulfil her destiny? The Demon Plague combines horror, time travel and science fiction to create a thrilling ride that will leave demanding readers satisfied and even breathless. The author has interwoven the past, present and future beautifully. The characters are engaging and believable and the dialogue sparkles with genuineness. Scenes are kept short and the writing focuses on narrative and dialogue, keeping descriptions to a minimum to ad to the fast-pace, thrilling effect. Yet the author manages to create a fully imaginable world, one which is vividly visualised. For those who have always found the Salem¿s witch trials fascinating, this book certainly ads a new original twist to the story. An exciting, entertaining, well-worth read.

    A REALLY FUN READ!!!

    I liked everything about this book. The time travel is written in a way that it seems possible, the pace is non-stop and the characters are distinctive, believable and likable. The plot has more twists than a pretzel and it's all tied together in a surprise ending that I found extremely satisfying. My only complaint is that when I finished I wanted more! I think the Demon Plague would make a great movie.

    The Demon Plague Is Contagious Reading

    Having been fortunate enough to have read an advance copy of The Demon Plague, I was pulled right into the pages by the fast moving plot and very believable characters. This is a terrific read and I could not turn the pages fast enough. I enjoyed the rapid pace, the breath-holding suspense, and the non-stop entertainment. When Christal, Ba Tuti, and Crystal's Doberman, Max, traveled back and forth through time on a wild chase in search for a lost amulet and a strange creature, I could see the scenes so vividly, it seemed as if I was watching a movie. Wonderful, descriptive writing throughout. I loved this book and highly recommend it to all.
