The Devil Crept In
This is an amazing read, thank you so much to Catherine (RedLaceReviews) for sending me this one.
I really enjoyed this. It’s one of those stories you just can’t put down. With every page I needed to see the next one to find out what happens next. It’s the true definition of a page turner. The mystery of what happened to Jude for the three days he is missing, the curious case of all the pets and then just what did happen to young Max Larson.
Deer Valley, Oregon, is a very dangerous place it would seem.
No one can seem to keep a pet, not of the uncaged variety anyway. They just keep running off into the night, cats and dogs, something keeps pulling them towards the woods and a creepy old abandoned house.
Jude Brighton, a young troubled boy, goes missing for three days. His cousin Stevie will stop at nothing to find him, Jude is his only real friend and ally. Stevie believes that something, not someone has taken Jude.
I really don’t want to say too much more about the story plot-wise as I feel I will give too much away. But what a ride it is.
It is a book of two stories, the intertwine very nicely all through and come together in a shocking conclusion. Everything about this book was perfect for me, the pacing, the characters, the plot with its twists and turns. The story is one which is very well thought out, you can tell the author has really sat down and planned all this out. There is a also a wonderful subtlety to it, the character of ‘Ras’ is underplayed on point. You come to know just who he is without hardly ever coming across him.
I would recommend this book to everyone. Seriously, check it out! Thank you Catherine for sharing this one with me, it really did strike a chord with me.
