The Master’s Apprentice: A Retelling of the Faust Legend Oliver Pötzsch

I finished this one about a month ago. It was a fascinating tale centered around two extremely dubious figures meeting one another. Faust meets a magician he later learns is diabolical Gilles de Rais, the practiced knight and faithful comrade to Joan of Arc, Gilles de Rais, was named Marshall of France at the period of only 25 yet his brilliant ascent was reflected by a horrendous fall. He is best recalled today as most likely one of the most debased and productive sequential executioners ever. We call them serial killers today. I won’t tell you the odd twist to the story.

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. I found an article on De Rais, this is why he’s such a diabolical figure in history. And we thought kidnappers were bad in our era. The man ran a ring of kidnapping children. https://bonjourfrombrittany.wordpress.com/2020/05/03/the-bloody-baron-of-brittany/
