About this title

Synopsis:

Abe Carlson left the mountains years ago but he's never quite gotten them, or the way of life in which he was raised, out of his blood. Terrible nightmares are soon followed by a cryptic letter from his mother, who asks him to come back home. Knowing something terrible is about to unfold, Abe agrees. The decisions puts him right into the middle of an ancient battle between good and evil that is unfurling once more among the deep woods and rocky hills of his childhood, a battle similar to the one his father had fought years before. This time he wonders if goodness and light will have the strength to triumph as they did so many years ago. As Abe begins his journey home, on the mountain Silas Greene begins a journey of his own, lured into the deep woods along with many of his neighbors by an ancient spirit that baptizes them in blood and fire. Now bound to the spirit, Silas and his followers begin rebuilding an ancient church , intent on resurrecting the dark sacrifices and rituals of years past. Two men. Two churches. One of darkness and one of light. And only one shall triumph. Wilson is a gifted writer and in Ancient Eyes we see his talent shine. In places the writing is nothing less than beautiful, rhythmic and lyrical, pulling us deeper into the story with every passing page. He tells a story we've all heard before, the battle between good and evil, in a way that makes us wonder about the capacity for both deep within ourselves. He uses religion as the battle ground, but harkens back to older, deeper faiths, where God was a part of the land itself and Satan was more than just a mystical figure tempting us from the shadows.
