The Devil’s Tree is a YA horror story where we meet Kaitlyn, her boyfriend Hunter, Hunter’s best friend Dylan and Dylan’s girlfriend/Kaitlyn’s best friend Keisha.

Along with being small minded people, there are tales of the Devil’s Tree; a tree on the outskirts of town where several people have ...more

A twisted, barren tree stands on the outskirts of a small Texas town. The tree contains an ancient evil, a horror awaiting any who get too near. Kaitlyn Karly, a high-school girl ashamed of her trailer-park poverty, is among those who unwittingly approach the tree.

In her debut novel, author Susan McCauley tells a gripping and enjoyable tale. She portrays her characters in a believable and vivid way, capturing Kaitlyn’s teenage angst and young love along with her strong yearning for a

Although this book is technically for young adults, it is so maturely written that people of any age can enjoy it. I, myself read it in just a couple of days and was sorry when it ended- I wanted more! It is a fantastic horror story with haunting imagery- the tree itself will stand firmly rooted in your mind (pun intended) long after you finish the book. Add to that well-developed characters with human struggles and emotions, and you get a book that you won't be able to put down. This is a book ...more

I'm feeling a bit wishy washy with my review on The Devil's Tree. It was a pleasant enough horror story (not to be confused with the story being pleasant - it was not a good time for the characters at all.) The setup was good and the story kept my attention. It moved along at a comfortable pace. I kept the book at my side and read as much as I could during uninterrupted times during the day. I did want to see how this story would play out. I was not disappointed.

As a reader, I'm a lot older tha
