    One thought on “Runes”

    1.

While I found it clever in "Final Quest" (written ca. 1979), I found it repetitive and recycled in "Runes" (written ca. 1982).Monaco's books are disturbing. There is a very dark energy in the writing, including torture, sexual deviations, and helpless characters controlled by othe [...]
