    The Writing in the Stone ePUB ´ in theKindle Ï writing ebok, stone epub, The Writing kindle, in the epub, Writing in the download, The Writing in the Stone PDF25 starsI've thoroughly enjoyed Finkel's previous novels The Princess Who Wouldn't Come Home and The Last Resort Library but this is a very different kettle of fish I was excited to hear that he'd written a story based on his knowledge of ancient Assyria especially because I recently read and loved his Ark Before Noah history book The result however is rather unsettling very bleak and dark with scenes of extreme violence and a plot which only really makes sense when you've read the afterword The Exorcist a powerful priest diviner at the court of King Ashurbanipal finds his authority threatened by a mysterious fragment of text that he can't decipher To make matters alarming it has been written in stone rather than in clay an impossible feat which proves that it must be a divine message from the gods Thirsty for power the Exorcist will stop at nothing t

    The Writing in the Stone ePUB ´ in theKindle Ï writing ebok, stone epub, The Writing kindle, in the epub, Writing in the download, The Writing in the Stone PDFIt must be stressed that The Writing in The Stone is first and foremost a dark tale about black magic and unseen forces Approached as a horror novella it is an extremely atmospheric and often disturbing book which pulls off the difficult feat of 'selling' the dark arts in such a way that doesn't lead the story over into fantasy A scene in which the main character extracts information from a corpse is extremely chilling and stuck with me long after finishing It has a good strong dose of lingering imagery aided considerably by gorgeous and sinister illuminations Needless to say this is for a very different audience than Finkel's usual work
