This is a really entertaining supernatural fantasy/horror novel, the combination of young protagonists, vampires, demons and a rural English setting making it read a little like Phil Rickman doing Buffy. The action moves along at a good pace and there are some nicely creepy moments. It never gets out and and out scary, playing more to the dark fantasy side of things, with supernatural characters as sympathetic as the human ones at times.
It definitely feels like the first book in a series, setting things up nicely for future stories, but that doesn’t stop it being a satisfying read in its own right.… (lisätietoja)

I assumed this would be a regular run of the mill ghost story in a haunted house but it turned out to be oh, so much more. I like well written horror novels that rely more on character development and atmosphere rather than just blood and gore. I also like folktales with elves, fairies, and the unseen.
The way that Beverley Lee weaves the words she writes to create an eerie other worldly scene is exquisite. I just love the way she tells her story. It is more of a brooding slow build of a novel. I really wish there could be a sequel to this book because I just loved the idea that this book was based on and would love to learn a bit more about the unseen world in it.… (lisätietoja)

The intriguing title stirred my initial interest in this supernatural fantasy/horror story. A couple of chapters in I got that jolt you feel when a story reels you in and I was desperate to find out what would happen next to the Davenport family, especially Gabriel, the titular character. Early on the story elicited that delicious sense of dread when you know something wicked is coming the characters’ way.

With well drawn characters, a plot full of secrets and dark turns and oodles of atmosphere, due to the author's excellent descriptive powers, I was thoroughly entertained. The use of multiple points of view can sometimes be a difficult thing to master in a debut but this author used them to full advantage to keep up a thrill-inducing pace. Judicious reveals and a rising sense of menace kept me glued to the story right through to the very end. Bravo to Beverly Lee!… (lisätietoja)

A delightful little origin story taking advantage of the historic atmosphere of spooky England.
Looking forward to read, where Gabriel Davenport is going next.
