The classic edition of The Necro Device features previous content that was removed while under the publisher. In addition the original artwork was restored and modified with a darker twist to better represent the novel itself. Front and back matter has been re-added to the novel. It now contains the Acknowledgements, Preface, and Afterword from the author. The ebook and paperback both received desperately needed reformatting. This version of The Necro Device is the most pure to its original form and is now published through DarkGate.
A page-turner of darkest depth. Betrayal, fear, and layers of hidden agendas all play parts in this intense, pulse-pounding thriller.
The Necro Device came to me in a dream one night. I barely knew what the story was at the time other than it was about 5 brothers who all die. I left it at that and went on with my life. Over the years I kept having nightmares about the brothers and the story. They became so frequent and vivid that I had no choice but to sit down and write it or continue to live a life of nightmares. It was my first novel length story and it basically possessed me while I was writing it. I wrote day in and day out six days a week for almost eight months non-stop. But that was only the beginning. Between work, school, life, money, and everything else there is, I never had much time to get it completed, so for eight more years I slowly sculpted, revised, rewrote, and edited it so many times I was ready to throw my computer through the window. I can honestly say, it was the biggest project I ever completed. I learned a lot, and in the end, it was well worth every minute. I'd never take that learning experience back.
Mary and her husband, John, are offered a contract to restore the Mandiev mansion isolated in the barren flatland of eastern Colorado. Big pay and a getaway are what they desperately needed, and for John, it marked a new beginning. Unfortunately for Mary however, it was the beginning of the end of something far more sinister.
The mansion itself is under fire and part of a larger conflict between the estate holder and the community. It all began decades ago when the previous owners, the notorious Mandiev brothers, and hundreds of locals died in fatal accident. Now many wish to have the property destroyed while others are out for revenge. Mary wishes to avoid the conflict, but she finds herself caught within its center. Strange things begin to happen to her, and rumors, nightmares, and a mysterious man pay a heavy toll on her sanity. She descends into a darker world governed by betrayal and deception. Secrets lurk behind every façade, including her own. Long overdue, her destiny waits.
John and Mary Hilt are hired to restore the Mandiev mansion isolated between four surrounding towns. In the past, the Mandiev brothers had a fatal accident which killed hundreds of local citizens. The event marks the beginning of a device that will control its creator and affect the community for years to come. Mary will discover the madness that spawned from its awakening and unravel its deadly secrets. The Necro Device is a mind-melting, suspense thriller loaded with hidden agendas, twists, and a diabolical plot.
It all begins with a betrayal, a machine, and a darker intent... It has a purpose.
