Sigils of the Old God
by J. P. Moore
Jamesport, Rhode Island, 1895 ...
Listen carefully. You may hear whispers of the city’s mysteries just below the howling of the wind through the rafters of the abandoned fish market. Odd creatures serve a witch in the haunted salt marshes. Sigils of ancient forgotten magic mark the cliff overlooking the bay. A ruined stone tower of unknown age stands in the square. Do not speak too loudly of these mysteries, lest the Old God send his servants to silence you.Fear Jacob, the most loyal and gifted of these assassins. He has killed many, from babbling ex-sailors who uncovered too many secrets in dark and faraway lands, to millionaires’ wives summering in mansions on the cliff and wandering one step too far into the occult.
But peer into Jacob’s eyes and you may see a hint of doubt. You may discover what you have suspected all along.
History is a lie.
The world is not what we think it is.
And, it is all about to come crashing to an end.
Jacob, an unholy assassin serving a shadowy wizard of the old god, finds himself reluctantly at the center of an ancient super-natural war that has been raging for eons, and which will seal the fate of humanity.
Sigils of the Old God is a genre bending adventure written by J. P. Moore. The author, Moore, has a richly detailed and innovative writing style. Moore affords intriguing charcters and an electrifing plot creating an engrossing and relishable read. The story is driven by mystery, intrigue and speaks to the dark side of humanity.
Contrastingly, there were times where I felt lost amid the lavish detail of Moore's story telling. I also felt as though the building of the plot and develpoment of the characters struggled to find footing but finds it path in the end. What is outstanding, however, is J. P. Moore's command of language, his expansive historical knowledge, and his unprecidented style.
I believe his ground-breaking writing will inspire many future writers and captivate countless fans of all genres. I look forward to J. P. Moore's future works with eager anticipation.

J. P. Moore lives and writes in southern New Jersey. Though his characters would feel right at home in the dark and mossy tracts of the Jersey Pine Barrens, the setting that he enjoys with his wife and three children is a long way from the worlds of his novels and stories. Moore's settings are on the brink. Their histories are lost, or misunderstood. Their futures are uncertain. All of the heroes are gone. Only the unlikely heroes are left.
