About the Book

The Terrestrial “A dream brings a nightmare And a choice between two evils” The already troubled life of Josh was suddenly fouled by the specter of a ¨strange woman¨ that repeatedly haunts him during his sleep; eventually becoming much more terrifying than any possible nightmare. The development of the strange relationship takes the reader into the domains of ancient gods and the origins of the human race. The woman´s design is to engulf Josh in her desperate attempt to escape from an eternal existence. At the root of this spirit’s unrest, however, lie the machinations of another. At the other side of the Atlantic, an old gypsy woman unintentionally summons a second spirit while trying to resurrect her murdered son. This turns out to be an ancient enemy of the specter that haunts Josh. Now, the interaction between these two entities forces Josh into a world of foulness and death. Josh can only stop one with the help of the other, and either choice comes with devastating consequences. In the final struggle, the main character’s will to persevere against tremendous odds, as well as the way he handles the circumstances that threaten to sweep him into certain death will draw the reader into the story.
