Few believed Professor Coldwell could communicate with spirits. But in Scotland's oldest university town something has passed from darkness into light. Now, the young are being haunted by night terrors and those who are visited disappear. This is certainly not a place for outsiders, especially at night. So what chance do a rootless musician and burned-out explorer have of surviving their entanglement with an ageless supernatural evil and the ruthless cult that worships it? A chilling occult thriller from award-winning author Adam Nevill, Banquet for the Damned is both a homage to the great age of British ghost stories and a pacey modern tale of Devil worship and witchcraft.
Banquet for the Damned is the first novel from award-winning horror author Adam Nevill. It is perfect for fans of Stephen King and M R James.
About the Author
Adam Nevill was born in Birmingham, England, in 1969 and grew up in England and New Zealand. A graduate of the University of St Andrews Masters programme, he is the author of Banquet for the Damned, Apartment 16, The Ritual, Last Days and House of Small Shadows. He has twice won the August Derleth award for best horror novel. Banquet for the Damned was his first novel.
From the half-glimpsed manifestations that haunt the entire book to the pure visceral horror of the climax, from the understated menace that lurks under passages of dialogue to the lyrical terror we experience elsewhere, Nevill the novelist displays an impressive range of skills and effects -- Ramsey Campbell Incredibly accomplished and with a really neat and original monster at the heart of the story. It's a feast worth savouring * Shivers *
