Daughters unto Devils (Paperback)Amy Lukavics (author)
- In stock online
Sixteen-year-old Amanda Verner fears she is losing her mind. When her family move from their small mountain cabin to the vast prairie, Amanda hopes she can leave her haunting memories behind: of her sickly Ma giving birth to a terribly afflicted baby; of the cabin fever that claimed Amanda's sanity; of the boy who she has been meeting in secret. . .
But the Verners arrive on the prairie to find their new home soaked in blood. So much blood. And Amanda has heard stories - about men becoming unhinged and killing their families, about the land being tainted by wickedness.
With guilty secrets weighing down on her, Amanda can't be sure if the true evil lies in the land, or within her soul . . .
Perfect for fans of American Horror Story, Stephen King, Veronica Roth and The Others.

Amy Lukavics brings serious game to the horror genre with DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS. Deeply disturbing, truly riveting and highly recommended. -- Jonathan Maberry
Best read late at night in a tent with a trusted friend nearby. * Kirkus Review *
Scarier than plenty of adult horror I've read. Take Little House on the Prairie, add religious mania, rural isolation, demons, ghost babies, the scariest cabin in the woods of all time, and you've got yourself a book you really shouldn't read alone at night. * Book Riot *
You rarely find a book this creepy *and* well-told. I'm dying to read more books from Lukavics - 5 stars. * goodreads.com *
