Danny Orchard wrote a bestselling memoir about his near-death experience in a fire that claimed the life of his twin sister, Ashleigh, but despite the resulting fame and fortune he’s never been able to enjoy his second chance at life. Ash won’t let him.

In life, Danny’s charming and magnetic twin had been a budding psychopath who privately terrorized her family—and death hasn’t changed her wicked ways. Ash has haunted Danny for twenty years and now, just when he’s met the love of his life and has a chance at real happiness, she wants more than ever to punish him for being alive—so she sets her sights on Danny’s new wife and stepson.

Danny knows what Ash really wants is him, and he’s prepared to sacrifice himself in order to save the ones he loves. The question is: will he make it back this time?


Well I'll be damned...It's not often that a book spooks me to the point where I actually want to sleep with the lights on. I knew I was creating a recipe for disaster when taking this book to bed with me, but it was just so damn good that I couldn't put it down.

Andrew Pyper made a fan in me when I finished The Demonologist. An equally as terrifying novel. When I had the opportunity to read his newest, I didn't hesitate one instant. Was it horrible of me to have had low expectations? I only had them because I was almost certain he couldn't blow me me away the same way he did with The Demonologist...But I was so very wrong! He blew me away alright, even thought I will now have nightmares until my 30's, it was totally worth it!

The Damned wastes no time painting the dark, vivid world of Danny Orchard, his upbringing and relationship with his twin sister. Pyper has proven himself to be an expert on possession. Ashley, a clear sociopath and lacking a soul is one of the creepiest book characters I have come across. She dies(no spoiler, clear in the synopsis) and from then on, torments Danny throughout his adult life.

Riveting, terrifying and will have you on the very edge of your seat till the very end. The Damned  will keep you up until the wee hours of the morning. Not only from reading, but from being to scared to close your eyes...But like I said, totally worth it!

Move over Stephen King, there is a new king of horror emerging!

  1. Oh my, I love horror fiction but am a bit of a wimp when it comes to them. However, I can't help but pick them up! This sounds terrifying for sure, and if I ever crave for something like it, I'd be sure to keep this in mind. That cover alone.....
