Publisher's Summary

H.P. Lovecraft is a starving, skeptical American writer of the weird and horrific, struggling to make ends meet in Connecticut.

Aleister Crowley is a famous British occultist focused on running his own magic organization, the O.T.O.

Though Crowley and Lovecraft's lives differ to a high degree, neither man is aware of the fate they share.

They’ll soon find out, in Dark Ripple.

Odd conversation between odd people

I got this book just because it was narrated by Rick Gregory and I have yet to find one of his books I didn't like. Never heard of Crowley and don't care for Lovecraft because I just couldn't get into him so I knew this book would be a tough one for me. Honestly I don't know what to say about it. I didn't dislike anything about it and it is very unique as it seemed more like a few conversations versus a full story. This really is just one of those books that you should dive into and decide if you love it or hate it. Pretty sure those are the only two responses to this.

Rick as always did a great job.

Interesting mix of fact and fiction

The writing was decent enough. What really interested me though were the biographical details of Lovecraft and Crowley. I feel ambivalence about using historical figures as fictional characters, but I can't deny that it makes for compelling reading when you know something about them.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

ummm....

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I honestly am at a loss for what to say about this book. It is very odd. It reads kind of like a biography, but not... The narration was good. It was really short, just under an hour, and I finished it in one sitting. That being said, I felt like I didn't see the point.

Huh..Scratching my head right now. 🤔

It took me a minute to figure out this odd story. A dark journey in the visionary mind of Lovecraft mixed with the dark supernatural practitioner Crawley isn't crazy enough. Add strange Indian, evil spirits and a quest for enlightenment and you've found your book. This story nearly drove me crazy trying to sort the reality, internal madness, and spiritual chaos going on in this book. I requested this book "not realizing exactly what I was getting into" in exchange for my honest review. Honestly, I felt the narration was the best part. I'm sure some of you will love it, but for me these characters were too all over the place. Maybe creating all that chaos was the point? I guess I missed it!

For Lovecraft fans!

If you're a fan of H.P. Lovecraft or Alistair Crowley, you'll enjoy this short story about how their paths intertwine. A strange Indian character reached out to each of them to reach enlightenment through Cthulhu. Definitely an unusual tale. Great narration by Rick Gregory!

Historical Bios mixed with the supernatural

If you are interested in learning about HP Lovecraft or Alistair Crowley, this book will definitely interest you. This is two short Bios that are tied together by a supernatural figure.
I did not find it scary, only unusual. Definitely stands out from the pack.

The narrator, Rick Gregory, did a great job as usual.
