As a child, Jonathan was very spiritually inclined and the private catholic school he attended only reinforced that belief. He received the Eucharist and was moved to have the blood and flesh of Christ in his system. When he started to question the church doctrine, he started eating his own flesh, a practice he continued into adulthood. When he married he kept his fetish hidden from his wife but eventually she discovered his dark secret.
Unwilling to obtain help he slowly ate his wife until she died from her wounds. At that point in Jonathan’s life, Yakul (Satan) comes into his life to claim Jonathan as one of his followers. Jonathan resists Yakuh’s call refusing to eat any more flesh but once the devil has his hooks in you it is almost impossible to obtain freedom from his influences. Jonathan tries fighting Yakul and his minions every step of the way but the Devil has weapons in his arsenal that strike at Jonathan’s scarred soul.
Mary Ann Mitchell has written a very exciting horror novel that is so scary it will force the reader to sleep with the lights on. The novel starts out like a thriller but quickly changes into the supernatural tale that fans of both genres will want to read. This refreshingly occult work is not ambrosia for the soul or faint of heart, but instead Ambrosial Flesh is for those readers who relish a frightening horror tale.
