Black Magic: a Tale of the Rise and Fall of the Antichrist


Read by Cynthia Brooks

(4.4 stars; 78 reviews)

Witches, spells, ghosts, pacts with the Devil, occult rituals, love triangles, popes and the Anti-Christ are some of the ingredients of this chilling early horror work (set in the middle-ages) by Marjorie Bowen that some consider to be the ultimate Gothic Novel. With enough suspenseful plot twists and turns to keep most listeners on edge guessing till the very end. (Summary by kadath) (10 hr 37 min)

I had never heard of Marjorie Bowen - but I was attracted to this book because of the title.I thoroughly enjoyed the story even though some of the dialogue was a bit clunky at times. I do hope Librivox will do more of Marjorie Bowen's novels.


(3 stars)

Had a hard time getting into story. had to give up after 6 chapters. Redeeming factor was it was fairly well read.

Wow I was surprised at what a great yarn this turned out to be!!
