Disclosure: I purchased The Damned by Andrew Pyper in the fall of 2015 at an Authors’ conference sponsored by the publisher, Simon & Schuster. I do not know this author personally, but I briefly communicated with him about this book or several other subjects while I purchased a signed copy. The comments that follow are my own personal opinion. I received NO compensation of any kind, or from any one, to provide this review.
This book sat on my shelf for quite a while before I actually picked it up to read it. The Damned is a psychological thriller/horror novel. I enjoyed it very much and found I was unable to stop reading. I finished it in one day. The premise of the story is unique, and at no point was the conclusion obvious. Though probably not for every reader, this was an excellent story. I would definitely read his other books. Recommended to those who enjoy psychological horror.
