Because this tale is based on real events, this manuscript was cursed to keep the tale of real magic, real mystery, and real murder from being told. This is a fictionalized account based on one family’s incredible experience and the magical practices in Hispaniola and the United States. It is a tale of Santeria and Voodoo, and a book of great magical power, which if mishandled, could harm the user and spellbind the unwary. Such books are the Grand Grimoires of the Dominican Republic and their magic is contained by burying the book when not in use.
The wrong person inherits the power and distorts it for criminal purposes and human sacrifice. And there were those who said he could take the form of a black horse or a dog. When I turned this story into a novel, I was told, “This is such a common occurrence in Dominica, why would anyone even bother writing it down?”
Then he cursed this book. And every life touched upon by this villain, including my own, became spellbound.

Interesting in a weird sort of way. The ending left a lot to be desired as it didnt really leave anything resolved, but it was ok.
I fully realize that this world as we know it is full of evil. It has been,almost since the dawn of creation and I fully believe that since there is already more than enough of it existinwe do not need to be telling stories such as this that might encourage some of weaker nature to try and ecperiment in the dark arts. All that aside it was a well written book and moved right along. To read or not to read, that is the question.
