Grand Masquerade: A Supernatural Suspense Novel

If you are familiar with X-Files, Lost, or Stephen King novels, you have probably heard of ley lines. Ley lines entered public consciousness in the 1920s after the book The Old Straight Track was written by Alfred Watkins. He noted that many ancient structures could have straight lines drawn between them. They took on a pseudoscience-feel in the 1960s when people began putting forward the idea that “earth energies” ran through ley lines. They have been a fascination for many since that time and form the basis of many supernatural stories since that time.
Grand Masquerade follows in this tradition by drawing on the powers of a ley line located in a dense Vermont forest protected by spiritual entities called the Others. The power of the ley line and Others work to together to throw a kink in the plans of a U.S. presidential candidate and a technology firm CEO to take over the townspeople with a mind control device.
The small-town sheriff and the tech executives son set out to put a stop to this evil plan. Both groups discover something they weren’t expecting in the forest.
The action is fast-paced and the supernatural aspects of the story add interest rather than a dues ex machina aspect to the plot. The characters are fun and interesting. Everything is falls into place to make this a really fun read. I would highly recommend picking up this novel.
