“The Delirium of Negation“
by Victor Mahn
Review by Susan Reynolds
A well researched novel with regard to historical setting and character description. The weight of war on the men living in the jungle of Borneo is appreciated but there’s a scenario no one could anticipate. No man has the power to defeat the supernatural”
In the novel focus shifts mid way from the war setting to take you into a mystical world. A world where unlike victors in a human battle the gods in the interplay take no prisoners. The book has several Titans of evil perpetuating war, one fought in physical battle WWII. We are made aware the Japanese are an on going threat to the soldiers. Then in the latter part of the book there’s a moral war between man and gods.
The journey into the supernatural lures you in with graphic details of events. It all happens when a man dares to break strict societal codes. He failed to listen to what was expected of him by his parents and pays a price. Horrific violence is at its peak not where it’s expected. Not in the theatre of war but in another place and time in Nth India 1779. It’s a world of suspense where anything can happen and human life can be readily extinguished.
