Banquet for the Damned

Banquet for the Damned

Adam Nevill's debut novel of supernatural horror. Witchcraft and the legend of the Brown Man flourish in a small Scottish town.

Keep up to date with my latest news and updates.

As a ritual exercise in entrapment, both in the past and the present, a kind of hymn to how all our histories – vast and petty – constrain us, The House of Small Shadows is often nothing short of mesmerising.

The Guardian

Adam Nevill explores a primal modern phobia – the fear of dolls and puppets – and spirals off into an exploration of a long-forgotten English folk tradition that is eminently believable at the same time as it is horrifying. A wonderfully creepy and disturbing novel.

The Independent

His previous novel was the superb The Ritual, but with Last Days he's gone one better. This is riveting, and Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King.

The Guardian

The Ritual by Adam Nevill is a mind-twisting journey into the dark backwoods of terror. Deeply disturbing and absolutely riveting.

Jonathan Maberry, NY Times Bestselling author of DEAD OF NIGHT and THE KING OF PLAGUES

Apartment 16 is an impressive book, one that will make you think but not at the cost of neglecting the need to entertain, a demonstration of what the field of horror is capable of at its very best.
