Overview

The Cambion by Paul W Nielsen

On a trip to Gettysburg, Dr. Beth Carmichael and her husband, Casey, uncover much more than Civil War history. Beth discovers a connection to a past life when she encounters the ghost of her young son, killed by the cruel mistress of an orphanage. Both the ghost of the small boy and the demon who killed him follow the couple home. The beautifully wicked succubus targets Beth's husband in a bid for his soul.

Beth and Geraldine Knight, a paranormal researcher, determine their only hope of saving them all is to destroy the demon. Unfortunately, one of the ingredients necessary to solve their problem is impossible to obtain - unless Beth is willing to do some very gruesome "collecting" from the morgue.

On the trail of a horrific murder, Police Sergeant Mark Stoner is in close pursuit when Beth and Geraldine finally confront the Queen of all succubi, Nahema. The shocking triple-twist ending leaves the reader wanting more, but hoping the nightmare is over. Is it?

The shocking triple-twist ending leaves the reader wanting more, but hoping the nightmare is over. Is it? Review: Paul W. Nielsen has written a page turning novel of paranormal horror. His inclusion of emergency room terms is short and no way distracting. The dialogue was natural, while the story itself kept a perfect pace for suspense. The characters are well developed and are easy for the audience to identify with and “root for.” The tale contained several twists that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Overall it is a well written novel that fans of horror will enjoy.

Just finished reading this fast-paced book. the story is almost believable until the end which becomes somewhat sci-fi. However, the last page really makes you sit back and say, 'WHEEEW'. After reading The Cambion I'll think twice before taking a ghost tour.

It's hard to fight evil when it seems that it comes in phantom form! What I enjoyed about this book was the paranormal. Completely different from a lot of books that I've read and really incredible way to bring a supernatural being to life. I'm not sure I totally loved the characters though. As someone that prefers analytical thinking I would think that Beth would also have a hard time accepting the weird crap that is going on around her. It is kind of in her face but it is all just so weird and she doesn't take the time to stop and study it as a doctor (I think) would. She just completely accepts all this strange crap. She grew on me but it took a while. And then her husband is very strange. He starts not technically flirting but flirting with his work friend and I just wanted to smack him! I mean come on... But that portion is just a little bit, once he starts seeing these strange things himself he starts to support Beth even though the stuff is really just crazy. All in all, I enjoyed the plot. The way Nahema was introduced was fascinating and I thought she was a great villain. She's totally evil and you don't find that in a lot of books lately. REALLY enjoyed the ending! In short: Fun, easy horror. You have to just take some of it with a grain of salt or the entire plot will be ruined. Just go with it and trust the author. 3.5/5 Received from the author for an honest review

Paul Nielsen is quite the storyteller. His novel, The Cambion, is a good read for anyone bored with the run-of-the-mill novel. You will forget you are reading and instead feel as if you are sitting in a movie theater. From the first sentence, "He sensed her." you are caught in the suspense. Just remember to leave the light on when you go to bed. Jan Marquart, CEO and Founder of About the Author Network.

Dr. Beth Carmichael and her husband Casey move to rural West Virginia where she's an ER doctor and he's a lawyer. Beth isn't a fan of country life or it's ways. Beth encounters much superstition and drug use. Beth and Casey take a trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to visit the battlefields and a haunted orphanage. Little did either Beth or Casey realize how much this trip will change their lives forever. Beth can't shake the feel that she's been here before to which Casey blows off. The return home brings even more strangeness to their lives. Casey sees an incredibly beautiful woman seducing him but thinks that it's only a dream. Beth believes spirit of little boy is haunting the house. Beth turns to experts Dr. Henry Parry and Dr. Geraldine Knight for help. Did Beth really live in the past? Are Casey's dreams real? How can Dr. Parry and Dr. Knight help? Your answers await you in The Cambion. I was completely surprised by this book. The mix of paranormal and history is a truly unique combination. Beth is such a wonderful character. She changes so much through out the course of the book. I was most surprised by Casey however. He didn't strike me as the type of person to sacrifice himself for someone he loves. At first I thought of him as selfish and uncaring but my opinion of him evolve over the course of the book. I can almost picture a sequel to this book yet that's up to the author not me. I look forward to my next reading adventure by this author.

Anyone know what a Cambion is??? Get ready to find out, but bring your good luck talismans and be warned, you are about to take a walk on the dark side, beyond the veil of death…(cue the organ). Accomplished ER physician Beth Carmichael and her husband have moved from the chaos of the big city to a small, southern town where women are “hon” and men are good ole boys, wink, wink. The old home they are restoring has the usual creaks and groans, but the townsfolk say its haunted with a restless spirit trying to move on, trapped for reasons unknown. To understand the history of their new home, the couple visits historical Gettysburg where relics from its troubled past are on display. What captures their attention is an old photograph of a woman and her family, because that woman looks exactly like Beth and she feels a connection to the little boy in the picture, as ifs she knows him. Could he be the ghost who haunts their home? What does he want? When sensual nightmares become all too real for Beth’s husband, there is reason to believe there is more than one entity haunting them. What plans does this demon have? What is her connection to the house, the Carmichaels? How can Beth save her family? Is Beth really the re-incarnated soul of a woman from long ago? How can a well-educated twenty-first century woman come to grips with the spiritual unknown and defeat it? Dare she believe in potions and superstition? The Cambion by Paul W. Nielson, an ER physician, himself, threads his knowledge of medicine into the life of his main character, Beth and then tosses her into the unknown with a flourish! He ratchets the suspense up with every page, and it never ends as more characters come along to create more chaos, including a suspicious detective after an unknown killer who has mutilated and disemboweled their victims, who have a connection to Beth. This ride through the unknown isn’t all darkness and gloom, Paul Nielson has peppered love, hope and caring into his tale, along with some heat-pounding ER action, the spirit of a young boy and that of his mother, proving that love soul deep is ageless, but can it conquer the demons of Hell? If you like intrigue laced with the unknown, some paranormal fantasy and a cast of characters that run the gamut of personalities and intent, I highly recommend , for a well-written, well thought out tale that may have you listening a little closer to those “normal” sounds a house makes. I received this copy from Paul W. Nielson in exchange for my honest review.
