The Occultist’s Daughter

An ancient secret passed down since the dawn of time. A powerful Order sworn to protect it. One man’s vision: to reveal the truth and trigger the greatest evolutionary leap in human history. A dark force hellbent on stopping him. And then there’s Ryder and Sammy, two hapless college grads caught in the middle of it all.

The book uses Occultism in Los Angeles as background for a growing romance between a clueless midwest guy who followed his wanna-be-actor friend to LA and falls in love with a sophisticated cult priestress.

I originally bought this book for our wedding anniversary trip to Rochehault because Diablo 4 had just been released and I wanted to read something dark. Well, the book isn’t really dark. Quite the contrary, actually.

It’s a real page turner and probably the most entertaining book I’ve read in a long time. Definitely, my book of the year.

In the book, the occultist family’s corporation is named Alchymie Publishing, and the book’s publisher is also named Alchymie Publishing. Could all of this be true (please, be true)?

We’ve Reached The End

It started 15 years ago, maybe more, I’m not certain, but I remember buying the first book… It was in Brussels and we were about to have some time off at home. As usual, we were stockpiling cool stuff for our holidays and we purchased the first tome of The Walking Dead. Yesterday evening, I’ve finally read the last page of the last book. Now, I feel sad at the idea that there won’t be another book to purchase for our next holidays. On the other hand, I’m very happy with the end and I’m glad that Robert Kirkman could bring it to the conclusion that he wanted.

I gave up on the TV Show a few years ago. It was not good, too slow and over dramatic, but the comic books are amazing from the first page to the last. I’ll probably read them again, one of these days…

Also, the 16 books fit in a single Kallax cube. Coincidence? I think not.
