Goodreads reviewer says

Be careful what you wish for. Not because you just might get it, but because you may not have the stomach to fork over the price of that wish being granted.

Goodreads reviewer says

With The Devil’s Equinox, John Everson brings us back to that glorious time when over-the-top deviltry was fun. And fun it is!

Now, I do warn you that it’s gruesome. You’ve got sex, perversions of all kinds, and blood! If you aren’t into things that get…graphic…you might try a different book.

And, usually, I’m not really fond of main characters who get into a world of trouble by thinking with their ‘little heads’ rather than actual brains, but I liked this guy.

This one was a lot of fun!

Goodreads reviewer says

The Devil’s Equinox by John Everson brought back many a fond memory of my early teenage years. 

Dark, mysterious, brooding and kinky are my descriptive words for this little gem of a book. 

If you’re into the horror genre or are simply looking for something dark to read, this comes highly recommended. Not perfect, but it certainly gave me the escapism I needed for several days whilst reading it.

SciFi and Scary says

This book is full of blood and gore, and contains all kinds of potential triggers, for example: excessive violence, ritualistic sex, abuse, death, self-harm and kidnapping. It’s one of those books you read and think you won’t or shouldn’t enjoy, but you can’t really help it and you end up liking it anyway.

The book is written really well, there is great  imagery and the pages fly by. It is certainly a quick and entertaining read. I wasn’t surprised by any of the ‘plot twists’ however, I was just reading and waiting for them to happen. The longer they took to arise had me questioning whether or not I might have been wrong, but when they occurred I found myself nodding and saying ‘I knew it’. I didn’t find the book very scary at all, I found the sex and the expected ‘twists’ kept the fear away.


Well I hope that was enough to whet your appetite and click along to enter the giveaway!

About John Everson

John Everson is the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of nine novels of erotic horror and the macabre, including his latest, REDEMPTION, the conclusion to his demonic Curburide Chronicles trilogy begun in COVENANT. Other novels include the Fountain of Youth erotic thriller THE FAMILY TREE, the Bram Stoker Award-nominated tour de force NIGHTWHERE, the Bram Stoker Award-winner COVENANT, its sequel SACRIFICE and the standalone novels THE 13TH, SIREN, THE PUMPKIN MAN, and VIOLET EYES. He also is the author of four collections of short horror fiction, including his latest, SACRIFICING VIRGINS. John shares a deep purple den in Naperville, Illinois with a cockatoo and cockatiel, a disparate collection of fake skulls, twisted skeletal fairies, Alan Clark illustrations and a large stuffed Eeyore. There’s also a mounted Chinese fowling spider named Stoker, an ever-growing shelf of custom mix CDs and an acoustic guitar that he can’t really play but that his son likes to hear him beat on anyway. Sometimes his wife is surprised to find him shuffling through more public areas of the house, but it’s usually only to brew another cup of coffee. In order to avoid the onerous task of writing, he occasionally records pop-rock songs in a hidden home studio, experiments with the insatiable culinary joys of the jalapeno, designs book covers for a variety of small presses, loses hours in expanding an array of gardens and chases frequent excursions into the bizarre visual headspace of ’70s euro-horror DVDs with a shot of Makers Mark and a tall glass of Revolution Brewing’s Anti-Hero IPA
