The Demon Guardian
Neil Davies, author

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

It all started with the sibilant, unintelligible whispering and the movement of shadows within shadows. For Dennis Parkes, it was a sign of his worsening mental health. That is, until the day it spoke clearly and told him what it wanted. Swanhild When amateur ghost hunters Jake Maxfield and Elton Hoggarth discovered the stone with the letters G and J engraved into it, they suspected they might have made a significant find, but because of the worsening weather, they are forced to abandon their amateur dig. They send their photos to a university contact, who confirms that they have indeed discovered something important. Gjallarbru Can this bridge be behind Dennis's situation? And does it explain the strange darkness that has settled over Ottmor Wood and the surrounding area? Or is something more sinister at work? And are Dennis's motley group of friends enough to beat back the darkness and save their hometown — and the world? "Neil Davies weaves Norse mythology and modern horror into a stunning tapestry of terror. You will never again enjoy the quiet of your own house." —Tom Deady, Bram Stoker Award winning author of HAVEN and WEEKEND GETAWAY
Reviews
Mallory A. Haws: The Haunted Reading Room Reviews

I found this novel engrossing from the first page, and I had no difficulty empathizing with quite a number of the characters {which does not always occur}. The plotting is taut and the theme quite intriguing (not to mention potentially apocalyptic!). In a tiny English community, laid back and quiet, a middle-aged man, unemployed, depressed, and overeating, begins to hear whispers. Sounds psychological, doesn't it? Not the case. His wife suddenly develops wild urges. Two endearing layabouts discover a mysterious carved stone in the local forest, and call in a university archaeologist with an abiding interest in mythology. Suddenly, all "Hel" breaks out, and I don't mean Hades. Think Norse mythology.

I read this page-turner in one sitting, racing through the pages because I was so caught up. Kudos to author Neil Davies!

The publisher generously provided a digital copy, at no cost or obligation. I opted to review.
