Publisher's summary

Once it takes hold, it never lets go...

Like an illness, fear spreads. Healthy minds are withered by paranoia. Can anything stop the contagion?

A peculiar tablet unearthed in a Middle Eastern ossuary provokes madness in those who encounter it. One by one, people come under the tablet's sway and are subjected to horrific visions and dreams. In time, the tablet's true purpose becomes clear: It is the harbinger of an eons-dead god whose reemergence will steep the world in terror and suffering. Having put the pieces together, two men race against the clock and attempt to disrupt the terrifying work of an ancient cult.

Wretchedness is a full-length novel of supernatural terror by Ambrose Ibsen.

BEST IBSEN YET

Any additional comments?

I cannot say enough good things about the work of Ambrose Ibsen. His stuff is just right up my ally - sophisticated and satisfying paranormal stories and "Wretchedness" was by far the best one yet! This story had several interweaving plot lines that made for a complex and interesting listen. Not only that, but the paranormal concept was one I hadn't come across before (which is pretty impressive seeing as almost every instance of "ghosts" has become a total cliche). I won't say anymore for fear of spoilers. I will say, though, that if you are even vaguely interested in paranormal stories, you should really give "Wretchedness" a shot - it's absolutely fantastic. Jake Urry is phenomenal, as always!
