A DARK SUSPENSE NOVEL

Evi Devil.

Yes, that’s really my name.

The irony is not lost on me.

I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.
Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.

And why would I want to?

One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be

4.5 “THUD” STARS

[image error]

This was a very good dark read and I find myself feeling ashamed that the only thing holding me back from the full 5 Stars on this that I’m guilty of wanting more of the inner working of Evi’s family life. I found them eerily interesting and would have liked more background on them.

Evi Devil is some heroine and her flip-flopping from a character that you want to protect and one that you are not too sure is completely innocent makes things very interesting. Evi seems

Evi Devil was lost in between her own memories. She often woke up from snippets of vision, not knowing which one the truth and which one was the fabrication of her mind. One thing for certain, her past was violent one. With the help of someone from her past, it was up to her to uncover the truth, no matter how dangerous and painful it could be.

Dark, Haunting & Hypnotic

DEVIL: is a standalone suspenseful, dark novel by Ker Dukey. This review is going to be a no frills review where I'm pretty much not even going to write up the review how I normally would, this is Evi's story and it's not a pretty story.

In the ‘Prologue' we’re introduced to twenty-one year old Evi sitting in her therapists office trying in vain to go back in her mind when she woke up outside of her house near death, aged 9, stabbed, losing a lot of blood

"If you stare so far into the darkness, maybe the darkness starts staring back at you."

Well, it was an unexpected read! When I started reading it I didn’t think I enjoy it this much! The story is about a twenty-one-year girl, Evi Devil! She thinks she lives in a lake house that inherited it from her parents that adopted her when she was nine years old. She doesn’t remember anything about her birth parents, so a therapist helps her to remember her repressed memories and let me tell y

Wow, did I enjoy this book! I have such a soft spot for the author's that created "Benny" from The Doll series, so naturally I just had to pick up this one from Ker Dukey. I have read a few other books of hers in the past, and I always know that when I read one of her books; I need to always expect the unexpected...and also expect a dark read! I definitely got both in the pages of "Devil."

Evi Devil is a character that is intriguing from the beginning. Through out the story I found that the more

"You are beautiful, Evi. But love doesn’t see with its eyes, hear with sound, feel with touch; it connects with its mind, and once it does, there’s no going back."

Ker Dukey tem o dom de me prender aos seus livros e com esse aqui não foi diferente.
Eu não consegui largar essa história, ela tem um suspense ótimo e a cada página eu me via mais curiosa e ansiosa pra saber logo o que aconteceu com a Evi.

i really liked the plot of this one, very dark and very twisty - unfortunately, what i didn't particularly like was the writing. it was often jerky and amateurish, and whereas it had nice turns of phrase here and there, it needed far more editing for it to run smoothly.

Evi would just like to know who she is, who was her familly and what happened. She lost memory at age nine because of great trauma. She has this dreams and doesn't know if they are real from her past or just dreams. She is sleepwalking (don't mention I know how it looks like if you have sleepwalker at home and belive me it doesn't have nothing with full moon) and half the time she doesn't know if she is dreaming or she is wake up.

Oh my geez....

That was a mind hump of epic proportions.

I don't even know what to say other than Ker Dukey once again takes us on a mind blowing ride with Evi. Her past is really really screwed up. Her present feels like an erotic blur. Luckily she doesn't remember the past, and has the water to calm her present. Will you read this book and help Evi remember her past? Does she actually want to remember it?

If you like dark suspenseful romance then I would absolutely read this story. It's full of t

It's been a while since I have read a Ker Dukey novel and I feel like I missed out! Her books are dark, dangerous, and filled with characters that cross the line between good and evil.

First off, this was a buddy read with my girl, Anonymous Girl. We will forever be reading dark novels together LOL. got to say, I love my dark, intense stories.

I think I should start with the flaws first before I give the good side of the review.

Ok so this book was just out of the ordinary. I've never heard of this author before but the blurb intrigued me. This book had me enthralled till the very end.

This is a story about Evi Devil told from her POV. She has no memory before 9 years old after sustaining a traumatic injury. We are taken on a journey as she struggles to recover what she has lost. Just to be clear, this book does not focus on amnesia but rather on her determination to remember. I will say this was one mindfuck of a book,

I loved Max. I felt so sorry for Evi and was so proud of how strong she was. These two are my favourite characters that I've read so far this year.

No clues about the story from me. You just gotta read it for yourself. The author had me thinking the story was gonna go one way and then bam it was going another way. The twists kept coming and had

I just love Ker Dukey's dark/thriller books so much. There are always crazy plot twists that has you on the edge of your seat. I didn't predict what was going on, or how the story would end. And that is just the way I like my dark and crazy books. I was hooked from start 'til end and couldn't wait to see what the hell was going on. What is real and what is not... You will have to read Devil to find out.

Evil Devil's life is caught in between life, dreams and nightmares. What is real may not be and what shouldn't be real is a horror show for Evi and her fragile mind.

Life has never been on Evi's side since the day she was born. The Devil family is exactly what their name stands for and they are the epitome of dark, evil, vile people.

As Evi's mind splinters between reality and nightmares, she finds her way to Max. A piece of her life that was real and pure

A wade through dark, murky waters. Twisted memories and darkness haunts the soil beneath her feet. This book will mess up your thoughts, just how I like it!!

I love unpredictable plots and I especially loved flawed, delusional characters. The pace is set with almost a vivid yet confusing dark event. I was instantly hooked from page one. The scrambling of brains and memories surfaced at pristine times, setting you up for false conclusions and a sense of dread. I wanted all the dirty details, no, I

If it's one thing I know, without a doubt, it's that Ker Dukey can bring a chill to your bones with her words.

Devil didn't turn out quite like I expected and it was brilliant! I pride myself on making the right guesses as to how the story will play out but there were times where I had it all wrong.

Devil is a magnificent psychological thriller that sucked me in from the very beginning. It was truly captivating.
