It's no secret why Yeval is vanity printed, the horrendous writing and unbelievable dialogue assault your eyes on the very first page. I couldn't read more than ten pages a night due to the flat, awful characters and unnecessary details that were a complete waste of time. C.W. Schultz would take entire pages to talk about albums that the main character, Randy Mulray, would listen to, and then never mention them again.

Randy constantly throws slurs at people, calls women "Hot bitches," "Slutty who

I found Yeval used on Amazon after reading a list of the top ten horror books of the year on some website. To the person who composed that list, probably C.W. Schultz himself, May you burn for publishing such misleading information.

Upon receiving Yeval in the mail I immediately recognized it was a vanity pressed book (meaning it could not find a publisher so the author published copies himself and sold them). On the inner cover it reads, "Scott & Susan, It means a lot to me that you're reading

Yeval by C.W Schultz is a intresting read, but as we should note it is his first novel so we should take that into consideration. Yeval follows Randy, Depressed and down on himself for everything that has happened up to this point in his life. The story begins slowly and eventually you see the main aspiration of the novel. The story speaks about the "Seattle Slayer" and his various crimes to which Randy sees through his friend, Yeval and the "Dark Room".

C.W Schultz has no problem explaining in

A disturbing but gripping internal monologue

There’s something very alive and vivid about this set of messed-up characters. Randy as a narrator is, necessarily, almost completely unreliable, as he is bullied and tormented by a figure in his mind called Yeval, who Randy describes as being created by his own guilt over the death of his mother.

Randy’s voice jerks and despairs as his reality becomes less and less stable over the course of the novel. This lends a suspenseful and unpredictable mood

Review originally published on

I did not like this book at all. The main character has deep psychological issues and blames himself for the death of his mother, retardation of his younger brother and the distance of his father. As if that weren’t enough, there’s a monster in his head forcing him to witness how the ‘Steel Slayer’ brutally murders innocent people. And we get to see it all through Randy’s eyes. The author had warned me that I should read this
