Rambling Voices in My Head Review!

This is an interesting read.  Dr. DeBlassie III has an interesting and captivating way of applying the psychological elements into his writing.  I love the mental games played and the depth of characters he is able to create.  This is one story that will keep you reading and guessing what will happen next.  There are some amazing "creep" factors to this story and I'll be sure to recommend it to my friends.

I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that I absolutely love how the crows are used in this story.  This is one you must read for yourselves and I don't think you will be disappointed... at least not in the quality of the story.

Writer Wonderland Review!

"The Unholy by Paul DeBlassie is a work of the heart as well as fiction. This beautifully described novel shimmers with both mystery and promise. The first page sets the tone with a mammoth battle between good and evil. Claire witnesses her mother, representing the natural world and healing, defeated by a dark force.

As an adult, she both denies her heritage as a healer and is drawn to it. She discovers those closest to her could have the most to gain by her renouncing her legacy. The author reveals using Claire as his tool that all is not as it seems in organized religion. Often the very existence of such is to control the populace not for their greater good, but for a small portion’s benefit.

Mr. DeBlassie tackles this provocative topic with an ease of someone familiar with the material and not afraid to address it. I would have liked the novel to have been longer with more emphasis on Claire’s childhood. All the same, it is a stellar novel."

Nightmares, Howling, and the Cave!

Nightmares taking place in a cave are scary. Not infrequently howling comes out of the walls. Dreamers try to escape. The force of the nightmare, like hallways of hidden hands, pull them back into the dark realm of the cave. There is something here for you, the unconscious mind asserts. You must remain until you are able to see, to hear, to understand.

In The Unholy, medicine women, the transformative powers of feminine energy, know to listen to the deep psyche. People walking the path of healing and soul understand dreams, visions, synchronous events. They listen to their intuition. Those who know the power of inner feminine energy tap into the energy source of the medicine women in The Unholy. Thing is, to get the good stuff we need to be in the cave. And, in the cave is where the howling and nightmares happen!

To access what might be frightening inner wisdom we need depth. Reading helps to take us there. "Live daily" is phrase I use during book readings. Reading the horror within The Unholy takes us into the cave of the transpersonal unconscious mind. It is here that psychic stuff happens as we read. The mind is affected, questions, wonders, and is possibly transformed.

Transformations are shifts in attitude. What we once thought sacrosanct opens for consideration. The powers of feminine consciousness arise within us and speak mysteries. Maybe what we've held near and dear has been too external, they whisper. The howling in the cave, once we settle into the rhythm of story and reading, becomes whispers that beckon us into questions, wondering, and possible transformation.
