Product description

Review

"SORROW'S POINT was probably one of the most terrifying books I've ever read. The book is a page-turner, but definitely not for the faint of heart. There were a few chilling scenes that will leave me with nightmares for weeks." - Heather Wood, Book Chatter "SORROW'S POINT by Danielle DeVor is a new take on The Exorcist and for me a much better read. The author has invoked pure spine-tingling flesh-crawling terror from every chilling page." - Fantasy and Horror Author, Simon Okill "Move over, Stephen King. Danielle DeVor is on her way!" - YA Paranormal Romance Author, Katie O'Sullivan "Defrocked priest Jimmy Holiday's narrative voice is a strong blend of insightful, self-deprecating, and sincere." - Publisher's Weekly

About the Author

Named one of the Examiner's 2014 Women in Horror: 93 Horror Authors You Need to Read Right Now, Danielle DeVor has been spinning the spider webs, or rather, the keyboard for more frights and oddities. She spent her early years fantasizing about vampires and watching "Salem's Lot" far too many times. When not writing and reading about weird things, you will find her hanging out at the nearest coffee shop, enjoying a mocha frappuccino. http://www.danielledevor.com

I'll admit, this isn't the best-written book ever. BUT. Danielle DeVor kept me turning the pages to see how it would end and for me, I'd rather read a book that I want to keep reading rather than one that has flawless grammar. A lot of the reviews on Amazon US point out the grammatical errors, which can be easily fixed with another edit, and yes, a lot of the scenes do take place over meals in the kitchen, but I quite liked the contrast between the mundane everyday life in that room, and the supernatural events elsewhere in the house. The chopping and changing between 1950, Jimmy and Tabby gets a little off-putting, and Tabby's sections could have been streamlined through her own dialogue in Jimmy's sections, but that's a minor quibble. This is an enjoyable book that explores a decent horror house narrative.

Sorrow's Point by Danielle DeVor is a new take on The Exorcist and for me a much better read. The author has invoked pure spine-tingling flesh-crawling terror from every chilling page. This novel should be a movie and if I ever get a chance I will pitch it to the right people for this is beyond doubt a true classic horror masterpiece.
6 year old Lucy is apparently possessed by a demon. The house is the star here as the author describes every nuance of the edifice from the present to back in the 1950s. This gives added chills and I got goosebumps just writing this review. Of course the church dismissed all claims of possession so the family turn to a defrocked priest and his witch friend. Jimmy and Tabby are awesome characters who have to deal with some hair-raising stuff. Above all else, this book is an atmospheric horror classic that should be downloaded by all fans of this genre.
I cannot recommend this book enough, but I will do my humble best. Go buy it now!

Danielle Devor has done an amazing job with this book. It is very a very well written story. The author weaves a clever plot and brings the reader a huge mixture of emotions such as fear, anxiety, wonderment and complete shock.
An ex-priest, Jimmy Holiday has agreed to help a friend with his daughter who seems to be sick but they are not sure what the illness is really all about.
I was glued to the pages from the moment the Jimmy realized that this was much deeper than a simple illness. The house was haunted and July seemed to be completely under evil control.
This is a great book about exorcism and demons and everything that I like to read about. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested about forces beyond our understanding, and ways that might help the horrible control of those forces. It is a book that will keep you utterly intrigued. A MUST read!!!

Danielle DeVor is a veritable production line of writing. And boy can she write. This dark and horrifying story has all the elements of classic horror: a defrocked priest, a possessed child and a house with a terrible history. Devon takes these horror mainstays and makes them her own with clear, crisp prose and dazzling dialogue that genuinely sends a shiver down your spine. With touches of Wheatley and splashes of Herbert and King, Sorrow's Point announces a new and brilliant voice in horror writing. Now for the sequel…

The Author gifted a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Why did she forget to tell me how great this book was? She didn't tell me that I would loose two nights, that I would be tired at work, that my partner would be mad at me. This book is addicting. The atmospheres are scary and frightening and macabre but I couldn't stop reading. I felt it deep in my bones. Sometimes I stopped, took a deep breathe and tried to calm down. I felt as I couldn't escape Blackmoor castle, I had to stay there with Jimmy Holliday, Lucy, Will Anderson and Tabby feeling their pain, suffering with them. I had to go through the magic, the possessions, the violence and the tortures.
Sorrow's Point has a compelling plot, vivid characters. If you are a fan of this genre, you just can't miss it.
