Pyper is a master architect of dread . . . Compulsive and nerve-jangling
'Prepare yourself for a sleepless night or two . . . smart, suspenseful and absolutely terrifying . . . Pyper has the unique ability to take us to the darkest places and convince us that the things we find there are not only entirely possible and real, but that we might just take some piece of them back with us once we close the cover and turn out the lights'
It's an uncommon novel that moves a reader, and a rare one that frightens them, but only the most extraordinary accomplish both at the same time. Enter The Damned, a tour de force that sinks sticky claws into the soft dark places in your psyche
As well-written as it is chill-inducing. The more terrifying and unnerving aspects of the novel - and there are many - are just as important as the human element. Damned scary
this reads like Blythe Spirit rewritten by Stephen King - a fabulously chilling combination
An intense and satisfying supernatural story . . . underlines Pyper's growing reputation as one of the most talented successors to the inimitable Stephen King - a reputation burnished by his 2014 bestseller THE DEMONOLOGIST
This book will keep sleep firmly at bay
Smart, inventive . . . this is what demons - living or otherwise, human or not - do best: they mesmerize, they seduce, they stop us in their tracks
