Title: Occult Paranoia Reviewed by A. Anthony 05/15/2015 1:05 p.m. The old public perception of Satanism as a sacrificing, blood-ridden, pentagram-wielding religion—one that stays in the cover of the shadows—is still powerfully present in the mind. The chill we experience in contemplating occult activities is felt twofold in Nedelton’s novel through its two storylines: one concerning horror writer Aengus Adams, and the other the rather unlikeable Johan Jensen, a Norwegian ex-military man. Aengus must deal with his sudden initiation into the occult world by a possessed woman, which starts to unravel his life. Johan Jensen is faced with, after arrival in New York, dealings with a dangerous gangster—he is led into deranged areas that he couldn’t have possibly envisioned in his worst nightmares. The reader might wonder why they are suddenly presented with the storyline about Jensen, and may at first find it a disruption. However, they will find that the two storylines intersect in an unexpected way, making one look back and realize that the seemingly unrelated action of Jensen’s section was in fact necessary all along. The Last Omen is not short on bloodcurdling images that will satisfy the horror fan who seeks out gore. There is a scene depicting a meeting of Satanists, at which a black mass is performed, and there are several bloody, ritual killings that leave one uneasy and a little frightened. While Nedelton does succeed in writing descriptively, his syntax and writing style in general may leave some writers stumbling due to a lack of commas, and because of occasional, awkward turns of phrase. The plot sometimes struggles to assert itself, feeling a little bit incomplete and rather confusing. But because of Nedelton’s attention to macabre detail (which shows his promise as a writer in the horror genre), the book ended up being an okay one. All it needs are slight modifications to increase its narrative flow and clarity. I give “The Last Omen” 3 out of 5 stars. Until Next Time, A. Anthony
With his signature style for detail and that shadowy, suspenseful atmosphere, Steven Nedelton has dipped his pen into the world of the occult. With The Last Omen: Possessed, Mr. Nedelton also displays his ability to meld two seemingly separate plots into one, while neatly tying them together with a unique flourish as they create cross-hatches upon each other. After inheriting his uncle’s fortune, author C. Adams begins to have nightmares and hear the sounds of an intruder in his newly inherited home. With no evidence, perhaps his writer’s imagination is getting carried away? The death of a neighbor is no hallucination and the investigating detective claims Adams’ uncle was part of a dark occult group. Meanwhile he finds an intense attraction to a beautifully mysterious and successful woman, who his disbelief, says she is possessed by a demon, who is becoming crueler as it rears its evil head. Little did Adams know that the day his uncle died, his life would never be the same. A former foreign soldier, a trained specialist comes to America at the behest of his estranged wife, but something is off, nothing is as she said it was, there were no great job opportunities and no great wealth. Even the success of his in-laws has been exaggerated, as Johan comes to learn. When approached by a powerful and terrifying group to become their paid assassin, the money is too good to pass up, the work is easy with his marksman’s skills and just maybe he is helping rid the world of more evil. These two men cross paths when Johan walks in on a pagan ritual that Adams is “part of.” From this point on, these two men will enter into a world they never knew existed. The question is will they escape alive? Who can they trust to believe and help them? The answers may surprise you… Get ready to feel the chills traverse your spine, to hear noises and things that go bump in the night after entering the world Mr. Nedelton has created. Not for the faint of heart, expect to lose a few hours of reality as Steven Nedelton becomes your guide in the dark and sinister. You may want to sleep with the lights on for a night or two.
