Five Maidens on the Pentagram by J. Manfred Weichsel
When a satanic wizard runs the insane asylum, nobody believes the inmates, even when they're sane.
Jonah is entirely normal in every respect but one: whenever he's frightened he turns into his evil alter ego, Maldeus.
When Jonah discovers Maldeus is working with the asylum doctor to sacrifice women on a giant pentagram, he's thrust into the middle of a diabolic plot involving occult magic, invisible people, and a perverted, sex-crazed blue demon! Will he keep his wits about him as he pretends to be Maldeus and stop the rise of Satan?
If you love Gothic horror and sex farce, don’t miss this creepy, funny read!
Warning: Five Maidens on the Pentagram has weird sex, obscene nudity, vulgar jokes, appalling sadism, sickening violence, and blasphemous rites. It's wild!
Five Maidens reads like a Hardy Boys book, but for an entirely differently audience!
The story is an amped up take on Dr. Jekll and Mr. Hyde, where Hyde is trying to conjure Satan, and Jekyll is trying to stop him. This hyper-sexed thriller/horror was spawned in the depths of hell. It is chalked full of cliches and tropes, but it is a quick, fun read. I enjoyed it. It is my third book by J. Manfred Weichsel, and I would read anything he wrote
The devil is coming
Another weird and wonderful tale from this fabulous author.. I laughed a lot reading this the humour mixed with the twisted story had me diving through the pages.. Have you seen the awesome cover? It's a definite purchase for the bookshelf.
The birth of Satan is near!
I have tried to find the correct words to give this book the review that it deserves, but nothing I can come up with really portrays just how entertaining this book is and how much I absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves horror, satire, and maybe even bizarro. Five Maidens on the Pentagram is a story of a man who admits himself into a mental institutes for dissociative identity disorder and snowballs quickly into a race to save mankind from the Earthly birthing of Satan himself. Weichsel introduces a variety of flawed characters, from a homophobic serial rapist to a demon with major gender identity issues. Each character’s flaws are not downfalls however in this satire, as they are vital tools used to push the story along into its final act. The use of dry humor kept me interested almost as much as the story did. Without spoilers, the trope of double and triple crossing is used perfectly throughout the story as a way to link key events as well as a bit of comic relief. Five Maidens on the Pentagram deserves five out of five stars!
