Here’s a different sort of tale from Mr. Shelsky, Ancient Enemies. Here, author Rob Shelsky departs from his usual sci-fi genres to give a story that is more a horror/fantasy one. Set in current times, in Sedona, Arizona, it is the story of two young men, very different in nature and background (one is a Native American and has had a rough life, while the other is your classic middle class, suburban sort), both stumbling on a strange secret. On a drive in the expanse of desert surrounding Sedona, they chance upon a cave. In it, is a mummy. And after they discover this, things change and not for the better. I don’t wish to give away more, but suffice it to say, this is a dark tale, involves elemental demons and much else, but with a slightly light touch to it. Seen through the eyes of a young adult, it shows how he views the world, and how he interprets events that follow.
You’ll enjoy Ancient Enemies. Although not as dark as some of Mr. Shelsky’s stories, it is fun and makes for a good read. Five stars for this baby!
