1/2" stain on lower front cover, corners bumped, foxing.
Apparently a paperback original. A Magnum book.
"The anguished triple curse was as old as Evil itself . . . Born in that dark and magical past, breathing through the centuries, it burst now from the hideous lips of Fergus Trayle, hermit of Black Loch, thwarted in his lust for the beautiful maid servant of Sir Alistair Rathlaw -- The sun would blot out, a kelpie would return to Scotland -- and the Rathlaw clan would vanish from the earth!
Only The Guardians, vowing war against all the malignant forces of the supernatural, could aid Sir Alistair in his desperate plight. . . But not all their knowledge and power might avail them in that last terrible moment -- when an unspeakable Black Sabbath rite threatened exotic torture and death to the last young heir of a noble line!"
