4.0 out of 5 stars I had to read this, July 26, 2011
By Dantalion Jones - See all my reviewsThis review is from: “Dantalion of the Goetia”: The legend is foretold, from the writings of the Ars Goetia, he who bears the name of Dantalion, hath fallen from grace. … who wears the mark of a demon… (Volume 1) (Paperback)

Because the book title contained my name I had to read it.
I was pleasantly surprised!

I would not normally go for the occult romance genre but like I said… had to read it.

The surprise in the book came with the twists in the characters, especially Rowan, the best friend of the main character.

The story is well crafted to take the reader on a gothic and heart pulling romp into a world that comes from an ancient book of magick “The Ars Goetia” (which is a real book, BTW).

I had a cross country trip on a plane and book offered me a great diversion for the trip.

Yes, Enjoyed it. Fully.

“Dantalion of the Goetia” is an action packed story of redemption and compassion. A real page turner, it captures the reader’s attention right away and never lets it go. You find yourself wondering what will happen next. I look forward to reading the continuation of the story.

Good and evil, love and hate are such absolutes in a non-absolute world. “Dantalion of the Goetia” is a novel following a young college girl with a curiosity in the occult who winds up releasing Dantalion, a fallen angel bound into an tome meant to seal him. Through seduction, author Tina M. E. weaves a unique story of love, corruption, redemption, and what it means in our search for something greater. “Dantalion of the Goetia” is a truly unique and fascinating read, very much recommended.

This review is from: “Dantalion of the Goetia”: The legend is foretold, from the writings of the Ars Goetia, he who bears the name of Dantalion, hath fallen from grace. … who wears the mark of a demon… (Volume 1) (Paperback)
I first saw Dantalion of the Goetia listed on Amazon.com, and as a reader of paranormal fantasy and romance novels, I tend to be very picky about what I invest my time in reading haha. My curiosity led me to read inside the book. I immediately was interested because I felt that there was something different about this book.

Once I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down. The author blended traces of paranormal fantasy with historical fiction based off an ancient grimoire called “The Goetia.” Dantalion falls from grace over the lust of a mortal girl named Lilith and is condemned as an Incubus demon – a shape shifter. He haunts a college girl named Laurel in her dreams who resembles his love Lilith.

The beginning of the story quotes:

“Dantalion’s lust was my obsession. His curse was mine alone to bear. Strange as it seemed, I welcomed it. Every night. Pain consumed me but at the same time, gave me something back, an empty reflection of the taste of immortality. His was the only voice I ever heard. He became an elixir pulsing through my blood. I could hear his breathing, beside me in the night. Sure as a scream, wearing the face of the angel of darkness…He who wears the mark of a demon…”

The author makes you feel like you’re inside the characters, thinking every thought, feeling every emotion. The love and obsession was a perfect balance without being over the top, but still makes you want more. The descriptive imagery throughout the book makes for one of my new top favorites. I fell in love with Dantalion and the other characters, making me want more of them. I would definitely recommend this book!

I absolutley loved this book! I was looking for something new and fresh to read, and this was it. It was hard trying to find a new good book to read, like a needle in a haystack ahaha. I’m glad I sumbled upon this here. I just adored the way the book was written, it had sort of a poetryesque feel to it. The story line was something I really haven’t seen in another book before too. It was refreshing to read a romance with a totally different setting. I can’t imagine the research it must have taken to get all the details down. It’s so specific and well thought up. I have to say that Dantalion is one of my new favorite fictional characters haha. The characters and their personalities really jumped out at me and were enjoyable to read about. The last chapter has to be my favorite though! I’m hoping to see more of this story in maybe a second book haha. I’ll be eagerly waiting to your next book! :)

    My favorite so far, Dantalion Of The Goetia: Taste The Obsession Of A Demon (Book 1) and The Summoning (Book 2) is a book like no other. I can’t stop reading and it captures my emotion like I am one of the characters of the book. The book 2 which is The Summoning has so many thrills you can’t miss it out. This is truly may favorite book so far.

    I first heard of Dantalion of the Goetia from a friend of the genre, I tend to be picky in my readings, but I have since refered multiple friend to check it out and have given as a gift to some friends.

    Fallen Angels, I can taste the obsessions of demons. Facebook friends, I know you too will love this book. Just don’t give away any information for those who have not read it yet. These writings will have you in awe. Tell me when you have read Dantalion of the Goetia so we may discuss. Can’t wait.

  6. Leah says:

    To be honest, I almost didn’t read this book. The topic of fallen angels seemed a bit too religious to me in theory, and i’m an atheist- but my friend kept telling me to read it, so I finally relented and gave it a go. I was pleasantly surprised.
    First: this is in no way a purely theological book. Nor do you have to be a believer to enjoy it, it stands up entirely on its own.
    Second: The genre is a mix- fantasy/paranormal (in the sense that Dantalion is a fallen angel). The foundation of the storyline is actually historical in context: a premonition in the Ars Goetia, which was the first section of of The Lesser Key of Solomon; a grimoire (book of magic) from the 17th century that was about the practice of Goetia. Goetia is a type of dark/occult magic that involved the evocation of lesser spirits, including demons, into visual form. Once visible, the practitioner would then attempt to bind the spirit/demon to them, and force it to do their will.

    I had hear some of these terms before I read the book, but I admit I had to do some research while reading it. The research itself did not seem like a chore at all- if anything, I liked the books even more b/c they introduced me into a whole new (and rather dark) branch of medieval history. While the origin of Goetia remains unproven, but tradition claims it was founded by King Solomon, who God had given control over spirits to for the building of the temple.
    The practice is very ritual-intensive, and in its heyday, one of the chief concerns and differences with it was that it didn’t ask for help, but rather, trapped and commanded it. Some of these demons and spirits trapped were still incredibly powerful, so the Goetia practitioner had to be extremely strong in their beliefs, and incorporated many safety tricks, if you will.

    In the books, Dantalion has fallen from grace and is forced to live out his time as a shape shifter/incubus as punishment. His fall from grace was falling n love with a mortal girl; by chance, a young college girl in modern times who has been playing around with the occult, bears a striking resemblance to the mortal woman Dantalion loved and fell for.
    After she releases him, a love tryst peppered with major consequences and some fairly intense danger & possibilities ensue. Both are faced with the consequences of their reality, and left to question what is really true, and what is pre-destined.

    I actually re-read the book after I had done some research on the various elements of it,b/c I felt like I might have missed something- all the pieces really fell into place for me the second time around, and I couldn’t put it down. I seriously missed my bus stop b/c I was so engrossed in it on my way home from work.

    Part historical, part occult, part reality, and part romance, the book defies being labeled as any one niche, and I loved that about it. This is the kind of book a guy or girl will equally enjoy, and it doesn’t follow the usual trappings of romance/occult novels.
    All in all, an excellent book, perfect for cozying up with on a snow day :) I just lent my copy to another friend, and she’s really liking it too. Would definitely recommend this, and i’m looking forward to reading more from the author.

  8. john mcleod says:

    Have to admit these are not my favorite books but when my wife had finished reading
    she asked me to give it a try. Wow, I’m really glad she did. The characters seemed so real and I found myself sort of caught up in their lives. I work with a group of school teachers who I know will enjoy these,if they haven’t already! Thanks for an enjoyable experience.

  9. Josh Lee says:

    HEY TINA M.E. i was just looking for books on amazon and happened to come across your books DANTALION OF THE GOETIA: TASTE THE OBSESSION OF A DEMON (BOOK 1)

    DANTALION OF THE GOETIA: THE SUMMONING (BOOK 2) and i thought they were awesome and could probally give us a new Twilight. Excellent work keep it up!

  10. Daniel Forrest says:

    The Danatalion of the Goetia is a poetic, well-written piece of art. The symbolism was fantastic, and each character had a fresh twist to their age-old stereotypes. Kudos to the author for having written such a deep masterpiece!

  11. John says:

    A very much different and appreciated change of pace. I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy these books but for the price I decided to give it ago. My opinion? Buy these books! They’re worth every penny! It’s a wonderful and enticing story that makes it impossible to put down. I can’t wait to see what comes out next.

  12. Debra Owens says:

    I love these types of novels, and can totally submerge myself into the story/plot.
    The Danatalion of the Goetia is probably one of the best I have read in quit a while. It is very entertaining, while exciting. It is mysterious, and the author is passionate about escaping from reality,and placing you right in the middle of the action. I give it a big thumbs up and will probably read it again!

  13. Laina says:

    Great read. Can’t wait to see more from you.

  14. Jinky says:
