Demon Summoned In 17th Century Courtyard Religious Site

STRATFORD, CT – APRIL 16, 2011 – Everyone has skeletons in the closet, though some refer to them as demons, clawing, controlling, obsessing.  Within a real life 17th century Courtyard turned religious site, among its mysterious Druid circle and rock-built altar, reveals the origin of local fiction author Tina M.E.’s gothic novel Dantalion of the Goetia.

The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Dept. of Interior and is considered by some “vaguely disturbing”, according to Elizabeth Mills Brown (1916-2008) Architectural Historian.

Dantalion, an immortal angel of God, has fallen from grace and is condemned as one of 72 demons of an ancient 17th century grimoire referred to as The Goetia meaning sorcerer or mage.  He seduces a mortal college girl and practitioner of the occult named Laurel, who summons his true demonic form in the Courtyard of the Undead, creating an unexplainable relationship of love, obsession, and redemption.   

The novel goes deeper than any typical gothic romance.  “Sometimes we face something so strong it blinds us, sometimes to the point of obsession, and there is strength in the human spirit to see us through,” says the author.

Excerpt from Dantalion of the Goetia...Chapter 1: The Fallen...

Some say even the fallen can reclaim their salvation.  His salvation

wore the face of a mortal girl.  I was the girl.  I did not yet now of

him, or his exile.  I was to welcome his presence.  And the pain it

brought.  I was to be tempted by the taste of immortality.  I bore the

resemblance of his woman, Lilith.  She was the reason for his fall

from grace.

You've seen the lure of the vampyre....now taste the obsession of a demon...

Chapter 2:  Evocation

His lust is my obsession.  His curse is mine alone to bear.  Strange as it seemed, I welcomed it.  Every night.  Pain consumed me but at the smae time, gave me something back...an empty reflection of the taste of immortality.  He is the only voice I ever hear...He is an elixir that pulses through my blood.  I hear his breathing, beside me in the darkness.  Sure as a scream, wearing the face of the angel of darkness....
