Kurzbeschreibung

Is it possible to undo a pact with the Devil?

A businessman makes a deal with a satanic clergymen, and has his daughter baptised into Satan's church. Twenty-one years later, provided she is still a virgin, she is destined to be the centrepiece of a hideous satanic ritual.

Molly Fountain, a tough-minded Englishwoman who worked for the British Intelligence during the war, has retreated to her French cottage to write. Next door she finds a new, mysterious neighbour, an intriguing young girl named Christina.

Why did the solitary girl leave her rented house only for short walks at night? Why was she so frightened? Why did animals shrink away from her? Molly and her son are determined to save Christina from the clutches of what promises to be a fate worse than death.

"One of the most popular storytellers of the century." - The Telegraph

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Tale of Satanic Sacrifice Thwarted. 26. Mai 2008
Von New Age of Barbarism - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
_To the Devil a Daughter_, first published in 1953 and made available here by Wordsworth Editions Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural, is an occult suspense novel by British novelist Dennis Wheatley that features themes of black magic and Satanism. Dennis Wheatley (1897 - 1977) was a British novelist who is perhaps best known for his occult thriller novels. Wheatley was a defender of British royalty, the empire, and the class system and an opponent of Communism and his novels feature protagonists who adhere to that particular point of view. In some respects, this novel is a sequel to the novel _The Devil Rides Out_ (1934), although it contains a different cast of characters and occurs after the Second World War had been fought. The events surrounding the black magician Mocata as played out in _The Devil Rides Out_ are mentioned in this novel in passing. The novel makes reference to British spycraft following the Second World War and the continuing threat of Bolshevism and Soviet Communism. Wheatley's novels feature themes of black magic and Satanism which Wheatley was to write about after encountering figures such as Aleister Crowley and the Reverend Montague Summers. While the name of Crowley is mentioned in passing in this novel (noting some trouble Crowley encountered while in Paris), it is the Reverend Montague Summers who Wheatley met that provides the foundation for the central villain of this novel. Montague Summers appeared in the garb of a Restoration bishop and frequently wrote on themes of the occult and witchcraft from a Roman Catholic perspective. While Wheatley and Summers had a falling out over a rare book that Summers wanted Wheatley to purchase, Summers nevertheless provides the inspiration for the fictional Canon Copley-Syle. Concerning Wheatley, he was religious and held towards belief in Christianity though his belief was slightly unorthodox in that he believed in reincarnation. When asked about black magic, Wheatley would always reply "Don't meddle!", indicating his opinion that one should avoid tampering with such forces of darkness.

This novel begins with Molly Fountain, a writer of mysteries and spy thrillers and believed by some to be the beautiful spy Molly Polloffski, living in the French Rivierra where she encounters the young girl who goes by the name Christina (whose real name is Ellen Beddows). Christina has been sent to live there to hide from some men who want to get her by her father. In addition, Christina exhibits certain strange behaviors in that during the night-time she becomes someone other than herself and animals shy away from her. Molly's son John decides to take Christina out and learns of her strange behaviors while out gambling one night. While there they encounter the Canon Copley-Syle who Christina knew from her home in England. Christina is subsequently kidnapped by the Marquis de Grasse and his son Count Jules, smugglers who seek to send her back to England. Together with Colonel Verney (known as "C.B."), a friend of Molly, John seeks to re-capture Christina. In order to escape the grasp of the Marquis, John must give Christina a ring in order to pretend that they are engaged and in that manner helps prevent the demonic forces from overtaking her. Meanwhile, in England it turns out that Christina's father Mr. Beddows is a very wealthy man who has made a vile pact with the Canon to obtain his riches. C.B. visits the Canon and encounters his diabolical laboratory, featuring the dread humonculous, as it is revealed that Copley-Syle is a practitioner of Satanism. Ultimately it is revealed that he seeks Christina to sacrifice as a virgin on her twenty-first birthday. Together with C.B. and Beddows (who has been a life-long Satanist but recently has a change of heart), John must rescue Christina from a "cave of bats" where she is to be sacrificed by Canon Copley-Syle, the chief Satanist, and his band of Satanists.

This novel is extremely enjoyable for all those who enjoy the novels of Dennis Wheatley. Throughout the novel, Wheatley offers an interplay of the forces of light and darkness played out through action scenes. Wheatley further reveals much occult knowledge in the doings of Copley-Syle. Further, this novel offers a warning to those who would dabble in Satanism against the forces of light.

3.0 von 5 Sternen different from the film 31. Oktober 2014
Von Seth Hexx - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I liked the fact that the Christopher Lee/Honour Blackman/Denholm Elliot/Natasia Kinski film is very different from the book. I worry, though, that Wheatley's books may be formulaic, this book did not differ much in pace or plot from The Devil Rides Out. I'll write more after I've read more. I loved that film, though. I think it was the last of the Hammer Studios films. Gets me all misty-eyed.
