Review: THE CULT OF OCASTA by Mark Allan Gunnells {The Final Limestone Story}

I only recently "discovered" this special author, but even the first reading convinced me not to miss anything he writes. Mr. Gunnells is not just prolific, he is both talented and accomplished.

In preparation for reviewing an advance copy of THE CULT OF OCASTA, I reread THE QUARRY, the first Limestone story, which I had read in March 2012. Although THE CULT OF OCASTA can certainly be read as a stand-alone, I recommend reading both books in order, to enjoy the full panorama the author brings to these stories.

At little Limestone College in Gaffney, South Carolina, Security Department Lieutenant Emilio Gambrell is a man with an overweening life purpose. Formerly a student at Limestone, the horrifying events of his freshman year forced Em to drop out and to join the college security force, his purpose to protect students, faculty, and staff from potential depredations of the "creature" chained far beneath Lake Limestone. Emilio knows from firsthand experience how dangerous is this entity, and when acolytes of it flock to Limestone College and to the community of Gaffney, determined to resurrect it, Emilio' s life purpose is honed to laser focus: to stop the creature' s rise, no matter the personal cost.
