When Tess and Eliot stumble upon an ancient book hidden in a secret tunnel beneath the school library, they accidentally release a devil from his book-bound prison, and he’ll stop at nothing to stay free. He’ll manipulate all the ink in the library books to do his bidding, he’ll murder in the stacks, and he’ll bleed into every inch of Tess’s life until his freedom is permanent. Forced to work together, Tess and Eliot have to find a way to re-trap the devil before he kills everyone they know and love, including, increasingly, each other. And compared to what the devil has in store for them, school stress suddenly doesn’t seem so bad after all.
The Devil Makes ThreeFeatured
This was a slowly building read that creeps up on you and then does not let go. There are definitely some intense horror scenes, and the author can certainly paint an image! The characterizations were deep, and this would appeal to people who particularly enjoy character-driven reads. The story flips between Eliot and Tess's perspectives, which adds to their character building, relationship, and also provides relief from particularly disturbing scenes at times. This is definitely not a good choice for late at night, but it's a great spooky pick for YA horror fans.
With compelling and deep characters and supernatural horror, THE DEVIL MAKES THREE is a chilling and spooky read that is sure to enchant readers. Recommend for fans of THE RAVEN CYCLE, THE NATURE OF WITCHES, and THE DEAD AND THE DARK.
