THE REDDENING REVIEWED. WHAT THE CRITICS THINK SO FAR.

By 2nd November 2019adam nevill, horror novel

We raise our horns and the red circle dances to offer thanks to these reviewers. I genuinely never really know how a book will be received until it is finished and published and out there. The Reddening took me two years to write and rewrite and another year to publish. Three years of my life, so these reviews and critiques are a wonderful confirmation:

Gingernuts of Horror:”Supernatural horror does not get much better than The Reddening. If you’re a fan of slow build-ups, heavy atmosphere, superb and intricate plotting, bloodletting and a novel which has a unique sense of time and place then you are going to love this quality story. 5/5.”

Hypnogoria: “A book that is powerfully visceral in all senses of the word, but it’s also fiercely intelligent – this is powerful, razor-sharp writing.”

Horror Bound: “”Nevill’s ability to set a mood and maintain that mood throughout a novel is what sets him apart from many of his contemporaries. It doesn’t take long to figure out you’re reading a Nevill book based solely on the descriptions of the setting and characters . . . Easily a strong 5/5 on this one.”

From Mother Horror: All the stars. This book, THE REDDENING by Adam Nevill gets all the stars from me because this is the kind of horror I want to read all of my days. This will definitely make my Best Books of 2019 list.

This is Horror: “The Reddening is an intense, chokehold of a novel. It grips from the start and holds you down as it makes you consume the horrors within.”

Steelrain Reviews: “Nevill does an immaculate job of describing the environments within these pages. It was easy for me to close my eyes and envision the cliffs, the paths, the caves of a country that I’ve never been to.” Steel Rain Reviews.

Anthony Watson, Dark Musings: “It’s the paciest book Adam has written, hurtling along, drawing the reader towards its horrifying climax. The writing throughout is of the highest quality, nothing is sacrificed to the momentum of the plot and the characters populating the story are perfectly drawn; real people facing an unreal situation. The use of location is particularly effective here, the eerie landscape of South Devon a character in itself.”

Patti’s Blogspot: “The Reddening is Nevill’s Devon Wickerman, and under his spell you might well, like me, shrivel into Edward Woodward hollering a heartfelt, yet impotent “Jesus. Jesus Christ!”
