Clegg is another author that can make you believe that hell can and does come to earth, this time in the vast subterranean passages under Manhattan. The man that loves Naomi must find her in spite of witchcraft and a a creature known only as "The Serpent" has escaped its bounds at last.

This book had been in my TBR pile for some time. Finally got around to reading it. Not bad horror novel about witches and a fantastical Forbidden City under NYC. Some parts seemed to drag however.

This is one of Douglass Clegg's less horrific books. It was an enjoyable read with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting.

Naomi Faulkner and Jake Richmond were childhood friends who grew up in Virginia's backcountry. They shared love, happiness, and a terrible secret -- until the day Naomi disappeared. As an adult, Jake moves to Manhattan, marries, has a child, and then gets divorced. Unbeknownst to him, Naomi is also in Manhattan, leading a life filled with sadness and despair. By the time Jake discovers that Naomi is living nearby, she is dead, having thrown herself in front of a subway train. Dead, but not exactly gone.

In Greenwich Village, a middle-aged woman named Maddy discovers that some sort of witches' holocaust took place on the land beneath her brownstone, which is undergoing extensive renovations. The exposed graves contain some gruesome artifacts and a centuries-old diary that belonged to a woman named Naomi. The diary reveals the terrible truth about this Naomi's life and death and provides a key to a formidable power. When Maddy succumbs to her curiosity and delves deeper into the diary's secrets, it leads her far underground to a vast maze of tunnels beneath the Manhattan streets. Also drawn there, by what seems to be the ghost of the modern-day Naomi, is Jake. Awaiting them is a dark and evil force that is about to break free of its bonds and wreak terror on the world. For Maddy and Jake, the stakes couldn't be any higher -- they must risk more than just their lives if they hope to emerge triumphant.

Clegg's spectacular depiction of New York as a vast Gothic mansion filled with haunted souls gives [Naomi] its formidable power
