Publisher's Summary

In the wink of an eye, as quick as a flea, the Devil he jumped from me to thee. And only when the Devil had gone, did I know that he and I'd been one....

Every autumn, John Pentecost returns to the farm where he grew up to help gather the sheep down from the moors for the winter. Very little changes in the Endlands, but this year, his grandfather - the Gaffer - has died, and John's new wife, Katherine, is accompanying him for the first time.

Each year, the Gaffer would redraw the boundary lines of the village, with pen and paper but also through the remembrance of tales and timeless communal rituals that keep the sheep safe from the Devil. But as the farmers of the Endlands bury the Gaffer and prepare to gather the sheep, they begin to wonder whether they've let the Devil in after all.

BORING!

Couldn’t even finish this one. Rambling on & on about nothing. I read 4 - 5 books a week on Audible. I’m have difficulty finding decent books in this new Plus Catalog. Take a PASS on this one. I hope this is helpful.

What a wonderful story. Take the highroad

Please listen to this book. Not only is the narrator an amazing lyrical and astute narrator, but the voice of the author easily transport you to the Highlands of Scotland where sheep get lost and so do souls as they are chased by the devil. It made me think about the things that I was told by my mother about her grandmother. Thank you and I appreciate your work please produce more.

If The Shepherd's Life had go dark and twisty.

4 1/2 stars. An interesting story set in rural England. It is subtle horror and closer to modern folklore. This isn't a face-paced story, more a slow and thoughtful burn. Devil's Day reminded me of James Rebanks' book The Shepherd's Life but gone dark and twisty.

Slow burning horror

How horror should be written. I’m glad to see an author take this approach and to execute it so well. I look forward to more of his writing. The performance was amazing as well.

Not really scary at all

I couldn't finish it. I really tried, but I was too bored. It just needed more to the plot to help me see where it was going.

Ending was a little flat

The story starts off pretty darn good, but there is this felling through the whole story that works you up to meet the devil. When the book ended I felt a little robbed. The story is well written and is very entertaining, but not the high level horror that I personally crave.

ZZZZZZZ

Performance is good. Story is boring as fork. 2 hours in and still wating for a plot to appear. With a title like Devils Day this book is like clickbait. Can't sleep? Here's your remedy.

Excellent!

I loved this book! It was beautifully written without sentimentality. It was honest without apology. The characters were real, flawed and complex. I loved how the Devil is accepted as the explanation for all the tragedies that occur in the community. I love that the community persists without question anyway. What a great story.

Anticlimactic

The author seemed to only take you to the edge of excitement but never fully jumped in. Just when i thout it was going to get good the author changed the subject and left you hanging and unsatisfied.
