Piercing the Veil by Guy Riessen Review Tour & #Giveaway

Piercing the Veil
by Guy Riessen
Genre: Horror, Supernatural Occult Thriller

What do flesh-eating cell phones, brain-enhancing tacos, and a real live dead foot have in common?
They're all tools in the destruction of our world, and a weapons-grade team of heavily-armed Miskatonic University nerds may be humanity’s last hope.

Something is ripping holes in the Veil of energy that separates our world from that of the ancient evils writhing just beyond what we think is reality. Time is running out for Professors Derrick LeStrand, Howard Strauss and their team of researchers as they race to hunt down a mysterious Frenchman who wields Necromantic Death Magic unlike anything they’ve seen before. 

Tearing open psychological wounds from Derrick’s past, the cabalistic sorcerer is gathering ancient icons of power to pierce the Veil and bring down the only thing shielding mankind from the relentless horrors beyond. 

If they fail, the only questions that will remain are who will live in servitude to the Great Old Ones and who will die…and who will supply Derrick with tacos? 

Set against the backdrop of a world where H.P. Lovecraft was not a fiction writer, but a Sweep, a special operative trained to protect the collective sanity of the human race with misinformative blends of fact and fiction … where the Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual is little more than a slightly skewed Audubon Field Guide, and the monster movies you grew up with are more documentary than not. 

It’s Nerdthulhu Lethal Weapon cranked to eleven.

Quirky, scary, filled with science fiction madness, some guts and gore, monsters and high-tech toys, PIERCING THE VEIL by Guy Riessen poses enough what-ifs to make one wonder, “WHAT IF?” Meet Derrick, Howard, Mary and Sarah and learn what truly makes a hero, and trust me, it isn’t those muscle-bound, over-the-top daredevils we often hear about! Brains, not brawn is a clear message through this quirky, yet horrific tale as geeks, brainiacs and tech nerds are the last remaining hope to save humanity from the evil that lies beyond ‘the Veil.’

A twisted sorcerer is gathering an army of evil from another plane, and has high hopes of overtaking humanity. Yep, total devastation and control. Enter the brainiacs from Miskatonic University who prove that superior intelligence is the key to saving the world. As these four risk life and limb, we can only follow long poised on the precipice of doom and trust me, it is one heck of a ride!

Humor, horror, and non-stop fascination in what lurks in the beyond, follow these team of unlikely heroes as they become the final defense for humanity!

Absolutely pure entertainment from start to finish as these four face evil with a quirky sense of style and raw sincerity to do the right thing, even as they trip over their own egos once in a while!

  1. I was just a little concerned about using a cell phone, but I'm thinking if I read this book I'll be too terrified to even pick it up! Sounds like a entertaining read!
