Passion, Horror, Fantasy, Mysticism, and the Occult

Every night thousands of terreiros (spirit rituals) take place throughout Brazil. Maggie Dalton takes a torturous path and risks her soul.

Tracked by Tonia, her maid, and far from her Michigan home, Maggie forges north to Salvador, Bahia, cradle of Brazilian spiritism. Tonia does battle for Maggie's soul. The knife turns. The knife always turns.   

Maggie wept because the priest was making her walk miles and years before he might permit her to stop and rest. A scarlet Saint George swam by; blue and green snakes slithered down the walls; the blood of Sebastian poured from wounds cloven like grins.

Professional Reviews

Startling Truth
Lucille Bellucci has caught the contrast of the misery and wealth of Brazil with a touch equal of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's works on Colombia. Bellucci cleverly writes of two struggling "gringos" caught up in the luxury and misery of daily life that characterizes Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, Bahia.

Movie Magic
It is riveting. The plot is intense; its seat-gripping quality skilfully leads the reader through scenes in which Americans ill-prepared for life in exotic Brazil struggle to realign their misplaced values.

A Glimpse Into the Shadowy Side of Brazilian Life
I was fascinated by the characters and the events in this book, and learned much about the layers of its social structure and its underground religion. Bellucci has written an exciting page-turner.
