About the Book: Can a ghost haunt more than your home? Can a Bigfoot track more than footprints?

Aubrey Taylor’s cozy life in the subdued, Appalachian town of Lake Julian had never been exceptional. Shouldered by his lifelong friends, Buzz Reiselstein and Rodriqa Auerbach, he quietly endured the thrashings of a persistent pack of pesky bullies, which included the most-feared kid in school, Magnos Strumgarten, and his own obnoxiously, well-accomplished brother, Gaetan. Comfortable in his humdrum niche of the absolutely average, Aubrey never pushed back…

…until fate dug a little too deep, and the unseen darkness of unspoken places stole his mediocrity.

When spurious specters and elusive mountain men battle for a tomb of Watchers, buried in ages past, only those who choose to search beyond the surface feel the grip of the ancients’ revenge. Unusual disappearances, a colorful cadre of insightful townsfolk and a whirlwind of blunders and mishaps exposes the struggling forces that transform Aubrey and his friends into more than spectators amidst the oldest war of all.

Prepare to see the unseen as you’ve never seen it before.

The Last Seer and the Tomb of Enoch is Ashland Menshouse’s debut novel. This adventure blend of science fiction and spiritual fantasy explores the stifling angst and carefree joy of adolescence in a world torn between tradition and the post-modern march of progress.

Ages: 12 and up

Pages: 440

  1. I appreciatae the inclustion of bullying in the book. Aubrey and his friends seem like most of the rest of us, everyday people who don’t really want to cause problems. Then, something happens that changes that focus and we (Aubrey) respond back to the bully. Very timely and very important!

  5. This sounds really interesting. I had thought about writing a book that as the except says blends “science-fiction and spiritual fantasy”, Bible characters in a fantasy setting. But hopefully in a respectful way. I’m glad it says for 12 and up because the description was written in a very sophisticated way that I had to reread some parts to understand what it was saying.

  8. My daughter would enjoy this book she is into sify and fantasy books, the good thing about her liking this type of book is that I enjoy them just as much and it gives us something to discuss with each other. My son who is younger is starting to enjoy this type of book as well.
