Product Description

Product Description

I bury myself in the city streets, to camouflage myself from society. It's reaching out to grasp at me, catch and kill me. These “devils” want to end my existence. I will survive, that is all I'm able to do. If they do come for me, I will have no choice but to counteract. I'm not running to keep myself protected. I'm running so that they don't find out what I truly 'em.

Take a look into the short story about the survival of one man against a group of hunters in this one long, scary, city night. By the end, the twist and turns will leave you wanting more!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great novella... 30 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading Killing Your Boss, I was expecting more of the same from DeSantis in Those Devils. The cover was similar, murky and mysterious, the title enticing and his previous book still fresh in my mind. Surely, this would be the same, right?


True, the novella is another excellent urban horror. Set in an everyday neighbourhood, where the Devils/Angels - depending on your POV - of the title rule the landscape, picking on the humans and torturing them for the hell of it, our hero has a bone to pick with the Devils since they raped and murdered the love of his life. Thus, he's hunted by them, seen as a threat. He is hunting them too, in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

It's this dynamic that makes Those Devils so intriguing. Who's good and who's bad? Who's right and who's wrong? Ambiguity is obvious and ever-present throughout and even though you can work out who is who quite early on, the doubt lingers. It makes you think, choose and then doubt your decision. When a novella, at a mere 50 pages, can do this, you know you're reading something different.

4* - A few grammar issues aside, this novella was very entertaining. I've read two DeSantis shorts now and so far, I'm very impressed. Those Devils isn't the simplest novella to read, what with its religious undertones and the dark fantasy aspect, but nonetheless it deserves to be read. If you like horror, this is worth a shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept Me Guessing 3 July 2014
By Leighann Darville - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This, although short, was a great story and perfect for anyone who wants a good quick read that doesn't seem all that quick.

Those Devils did something not much can do, it kept me guessing the whole time, which is something I truly enjoy but doesn't happen often.

A good short read that's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gifted Storyteller! 26 May 2014
By Stephen M. Collins - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy short stories that lend themselves toward a philosophical bent and commentary about human nature, and societies as they are now. Very easy read. You will pause often to reflect. A gifted storyteller.

5.0 out of 5 stars I won't deny that I loved this short tale. 14 Mar 2014
By Kitsune Reviews - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was just so different that I couldn't help but be engrossed and love the tale. The writer pulls you in and guides you though each bend and curve of this twisted tale till you are left with the jaw dropping end. Well done indeed.

I will be looking for more by this author as his style and his method of story telling just hooked me for life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read if you have a little down time. 24 Dec 2013
By Chris - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought Thoes Devils was a well written short story due to the fact nothing was drawn out and I felt there were no dull moments. It took me about an hour to read in case people want that info. It also has a nice ending that I felt was a bit of a surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars DeSantis' first short story hits the right strides. 1 Dec 2013
By Nick Pell - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
DeSantis' first published short story "Those Devils" does a good job maintaining suspense while driving the story forward. The story is told through two different perspectives, one through the eyes of an unnamed character and the other through those of the people hunting him. While the story is only 30 pages long, it contains a story told surprisingly well with a sold plot which drives forward until its interesting conclusion. I'd like to see some sort of expansion to this story with new characters but set in the same world.

Definitely check it out if you like sci-fi-esc stuff and DeSantis' other works.
