Demon King: A Novel of Horror and Supernatural Suspense (The Bloodletter Chronicles Book 1)

by Erik Henry Vick

2019 Top Shelf Book Awards Suspense First Place Winner
Only three children survived the terrors of Oneka Falls, New York in 1979.

Each of them paid a terrible price and had to survive as best they could—wrapped in fantasy, the comfort of amnesia, or the silence of self-imposed isolation. Twenty-eight years later, they are drawn together to once again face the town's horrible secrets--the horde of demons infesting Oneka Falls.

But the strongest of the demons is the one who terrorized them as children…

Can they survive another confrontation with the Demon King?

Critical Acclaim for Demon King:
★★★★★ “Vick’s dark, tense thriller pits young kids—and their older selves—against a demonic evil and his twisted daughters in Upstate New York... Vick bounces the story line between eras effectively, and the tension never lets up. Stephen King fans will enjoy spotting the references that Vick sprinkles throughout in homage... [T]he thrills and horrors are engrossing.”--Publisher's Weekly
★★★★★ “While favorably compared to Stephen King’s IT––in particular––and King & Koontz in general, by hundreds of reviews, I found the novel just as close to Stranger Things...“--Robert W. Walker, TopShelf Reviews
★★★★★ “Vick’s (Errant Gods, 2017, etc.) supernatural horror story is evocative of Stephen King’s work in its use of a small-town setting and a gang of friends facing a powerful evil.”--Kirkus Reviews
★★★★★ “What do you get when you mix elements of fear, mystery, suspense, foreshadowing and a perfectly gripping plot? Give up? Well… if all of these elements are woven together in a seamless piece of writing, you will end up with one fantastic horror story! This is exactly the case with Erik Henry Vick’s novel, Demon King.”--Leonard Tillerman,
★★★★★ “Demon King is a novel that is impossible to put down. Gripping and intense are only two words to describe the effect of the story, but if horror is your pleasure, that is all you need to hear.
