    One thought on “Black Magic”

    1. I am not a very emotional person by nature, but I was quite thrilled with this book. Let me convey my thoughts as orderly and coherently as I can:Demons! Spells! Satanic rituals! Ultra-Gothic atmosphere! Papal corruption! Violent thunderstorms! Love triangles! Ghosts and witches! Medieval opulence! Gruesome violence! Good vs. evil! Comets! THE ANTICHRIST!Simply put, this book was nauseatingly grim, but awesome. Flat-out, straight-up awesome.

    2. Black Magic is set in the Middle Ages, but a specific time frame therein is not really specified. All of the characters of the novel are fictitious including the Popes & Emperors. But for all that, the writer paints a picture of 2 youths who are bound together, one of whom, Dirk Renswoude, has sworn allegiance to the Devil in return for worldly power, wealth & glory. The plot revolves how he and his sometime companion and friend, Theirry, go about getting it, using black magic. With Sata [...]

    3. E’ passato un po’ di tempo dall’ultima recensione, o meglio commento, ma eccomi di nuovo carica.Questa volta affronto un genere a me molto caro: il Romanzo Gotico.Perchè molto caro? Perchè adoro tutto quello che ha a che fare con l’esoterismo e mi intriga leggere romanzi pieni di mistero e magia.“Magia Nera“, pubblicato dalla Gargoyle Books, è un libro di appena 304 pagine dalla lettura piuttosto lenta.Adoro questa copertina grigia e quasi neutra, rende bene il tema di cui si va a [...]

    4. Black Magic begins with this ominous first line: 'In the large room of a house in a certain quiet city in Flanders, a man was guilding a devil'. That person is Dirk Renswoude, a craftsman and loner of noble birth who has been mistreated in some unspecified way by his family. He meets Thierry, a young scholar on his way to study at the university at Basle and they soon discover that they have a shared fascination with the black arts.However, Thierry is is initially cautious and afraid of blasphem [...]

    5. Toward the end of the novel I thought of Horatio’s “of deaths put on by cunning and forc’d cause; and…purposes mistook Fall’n on th’inventors heads.” That this summation could apply tells a reader that there’s much implausibility in the plot. That’s true of many Gothics (and melodramas) but when you add in [spoilers] a woman whose disguise as a man goes undetected for decades, the writer draws on earlier traditions. Despite this, the book is enjoyable. Nor do the sumptuous desc [...]

    6. I never thought a tale of the rise and fall of the Anti-Christ could fail to hold my interest, but there you go.

    7. Without a doubt this is the finest gothic novel I have ever read! (Full review will come later now I will just say WOW)

    8. Very good plot and well developed characters. The 'secret' is really well done! Holds the interest of the reader even after more than a century
