The Ojanox II: Ashes to Ashes

Daemon Manx


"The Ojanox is Phenomenal! There's a new voice in horror, and his name is Daemon Manx. Felissa Rose, Actress/Producer/Scream Queen - Sleepaway Camp, Return to Sleepaway Camp, Silent Night, Zombie Night, and many more


The year is 1979. A small New York town prepares to welcome the fall season in all the expected ways: young children bicker and boast over Halloween costumes, secret lovers meet in clandestine corners, and a tortured soul plots wicked deeds. All the while, hidden just out of view, patient and hungry... an ancient evil lurks.


Welcome to Garrett Grove, an unassuming community nestled within the foothills of the Watchung Mountains. The very definition of "Everytown, USA", it is a largely self-contained municipality, most of the residents on a first-name basis. An almost postcard-perfect location.


Scream in the Dark was only the beginning. Ashes to Ashes resumes where Book I left off.


Dr. Ethan Ziegler believes the mysterious outbreak has been contained and the people of Garrett Grove have nothing to worry about. However, an ill-fated traffic fatality leads to a gruesome discovery, leaving Sheriff Carl Primrose and Medical Examiner Burt Lively even more concerned about the deadly infection.


With increasing occurrences of random violence and a rash of absenteeism reported in the town's schools and businesses, it becomes apparent that something terrible is taking place.


Meanwhile, on the side of the mountain, an excavation team has unwittingly released a darkness back into the world.


Ashes to Ashes is the second installment in The Ojanox series. It's a fast-paced, old school creature feature meets cosmic horror story, with an underlying coming of age element, full of in-depth character development, suspense, and terror.


"Written with beautifully descriptive scenes, The Ojanox places you directly into the quaint, small town of Garrett Grove during the Halloween season where everything is pleasant...until it isn't. An ancient, dark entity is accidently excavated and escapes into the world with chilling results. The Ojanox is a fresh, original, plot-driven page turner that I couldn't put down. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to Part Two of this excellent series." - Jeani Rector, Editor of The Horror Zine


"In The Ojanox, Daemon Manx creates a community and cast of characters you feel like you know personally, like you've known them all your life. And when you lose one of those characters, you've lost one of your own. Manx makes you care and makes you hurt. The Ojanox is a masterclass on characterization." Patrick C. Harrison III, Author of 100% Match and Grandpappy
