Look Out For … The Lovecraft Code by Peter Levenda

Look Out For … The Lovecraft Code by Peter Levenda

Think Hellraiser colliding with the Illuminati.”

Drawing on decades of experience, author and historian Peter Levenda turns to the novel as the best and perhaps only way to tell a story that has to be told – that hidden within the tales of America’s most iconic writer of gothic horror, H.P. Lovecraft, runs a vein of actual terror.

Gregory Angell, the present-day descendant of George Angell in Lovecraft’s “Call of Cthulhu,” is summoned by a nameless covert agency of the US government to retrieve a sacred book from the grasp of an Islamist terror network operating out of northern Iraq, in the land of the Yezidi. Practitioners of a monotheistic religion with mystical traditions, the Yezidi are all that’s left of an ancient sect that possessed the key to the origins of the human race and was in conflict with another, more ancient civilization from beyond the stars.

Why We’re Excited About This Book:

Touted as a collision of The Da Vinci Code and Lovecraft, the prospect of a rip roaring conspiracy theory adventure based in the always fascinating world of Cthulhu mythology has got to be worth a read. Think Hellraiser colliding with the Illuminati and imagine what sights Peter Levenda has to show us.

The Lovecraft Code is out on 23 February 2017 and is available from Amazon.

    It’s already out in the US. I’m about 3/4 through, and it’s really good. Reads like a high-concept thriller, but makes you think hard about what you “allow” into your reality. Also, quite the primer on Middle East culture. Pretty awesome.
