Call of the Tetromet (Southern Discomfort 7) by Ezekiel Kincaid
The year 1975. The town, Chapel HIll, North Carolina. Jack has just moved into an old farmhouse with a malevolent past. One the townsfolk dare not talk about. HIs only link to unearthing the mysteries is the local Pastor of the church sitting not too far from the house.
Dreams are had. Visions are seen. And books are discovered. Sometimes, the ancient darkness should be left shrouded and the old ones left undisturbed. Jack has no intention of letting such secrets stay buried. But at what cost? The darkness always seeks the curious soul.
Come, and let Ezekiel Kincaid take you by the hand and submerge you into a world of nightmare fuel. Full of foreboding atmosphere, visceral images to make your skin crawl, and a heartless ending, fans of Dagon, The Wickerman, and Midsomer will salivate over this Lovecraftian style story of folk horror.

Like I said in another review, I've been a fan of Ezekiel's Tetromet/Theodosia universe since I read his Dreadful Death book series. This particular story takes place before Tetromet Rising (Southern Discomfort 4) and has a totally different feel (another thing I admire about Kincaid is his ability to write in various styles). This one follows Jack, a man who moves into Theodosia's childhood home from the Dreadful Death series. Odd things begin to transpire and Jack feels a call from Theodosia and the Tetromet. He goes to talk to the local pastor and they begin to uncover the dark history of Theodosia and the ancient documents that first mention the Tetromet. Things take a wickedly dark turn and Jack becomes engrossed and absorbed with Theo and the Tetromet. No spoilers, so I won't give away the ending, but it seems like Kincaid is using this story to set up another main character in this universe. Highly recommend!
