Book Mini Review: Messenger by Edward Lee

A little bit of Hell has just come to earth.
Would you like to become someone else? Well, someone else is about to become you. He will share your heart and your mind, he will seep into your body, he will feel all your ecstacy...And then he will take you on a slaughterfest.

Occult rites. Ritualistic murder.You have become possessed. But not by a ghost. Not by a demon. It's something much worse.Just as God has a messenger, so does the devil, and that messenger is here, now, in your town. He has a message to send...

My Review:
Now this was a much better offering from Edward Lee. A postal worker opens up a package addressed to the depot, which is an unusual thing and when he opens it he becomes infected, going on an immediate killing spree in the neighbourhood. Now years later to meet demand, the old depot is reopening and something lurks inside waiting to possess again...

This book has the sex, violent and horror that you expect in an Edward Lee story. The big difference here is that there is also a good story to tie it in together, with plenty of tension and a few twists. There is decent character development as well which is a bonus though not required in this type of horror novel.

    1. It's one of the few Edward Lee books that I actually liked. It had a good story in it.

  2. This sounds like a creepy and gritty book, not sure if it for me, as I am now a fan of horror books. I am happy you enjoyed it!

    1. It made up for ploughing through a pile of Edward Lee books that I didn't like!
