From the Devil’s Throat to The Diablo Horror

Is the cost of one life worth the loss of another?

The Diablo Horror picks up where the Devil’s Throat ends. Demon Aka Manah has convinced Steven to make a deal with him to save the lives of his father, Roy, and dear friend Eliza. But Steven doesn’t move fast enough – so now Eliza is in the hospital near death, and will remain that way until Steven does his bidding. Steven cannot fulfill his obligation himself, and is bound to secrecy so he must be careful in obtaining the help he needs to see it through. Every step Steven takes, he has to jump through hoops, make promises, and pay heavily. Aka Manah prays on Steven’s vulnerability to save Eliza, but the cost is far beyond what he ever imagined. After Steven delivers, and Eliza is saved, he has no choice but to confess why he had to agree to Aka Manah’s deal. The aftermath of this experience is nothing less than catastrophic, but it is not over. Vohuman, another demon approaches Steven with a way to get even with Aka Manah. He tells Steven what Aka Mahan actually did, and offers the opportunity to get revenge. Can this demon be trusted? Does Steven have any choice? Who can Steven trust outside his small circle to make sure Vohuman will live up to his end of the bargain? Will this deal bring peace to all involved?

Once again the author fills the book with page turning excitement. Friends and enemies both old and new bring depth to a story line that will have you losing sleep to find out what is next. As said at the beginning of the review, Diablo Horror is a continuation of Devil’s Throat, but is strong enough to stand alone. All the books in the series can stand up to being read singularly, but, I cannot imagine why you would want to. The entire series is rich with fresh new ideas, scary plots, and exciting characters. Many authors writing an extensive series tend to repeat story lines, and get lazy with character development. You will not find that here! Before I read this book, I took the opportunity to re-read the entire series. It was definitely not a waste of time. I enjoyed them all even more this time around, and I was still excited to turn the page of The Diablo Horror! ( )
