Unto the Beast

“Captivating…” – Associated Press

The world is at war … and the machinations of evil are on the rise once more…

1945. Nazi Germany.

The world has been at war for six years, and not for the first time in this century a watchful eye is focused on the movements of the Germany army.

But unseen, another battle is being waged.

An eternal battle, a terrifying force, far larger than the men involved.

We travel back in time, to an era when future terror is only the twisted dream of a young man.

But when strange rites are freshly performed, a secret gateway slowly opens…

The world may not be ready now or in the future for the power and horror that lies beyond.

But they do not know – this force has been here for generations…

Travelling further in time, we find a medieval world beset by a terrible power. Where a beast awakens from its ancient slumber and steps through the gates to create hell on earth.

And in 1945 in Nazi Germany, a man named Adolf Hitler evokes this hell once more…

Unto the Beast is a chilling, powerful saga of speculative fiction and time travel following the savage rule of a man called Hitler — and how his unnatural obsessions sprang not only from a vicious heart, but from a dark and supernatural past.
