Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review: DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS by Amy Lukavics
An exceptionally well-plotted, tacitly woven and imaginative novel, DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS has much to recommend it, even to audiences other than its YA appeal. Ms. Lukavics is a fine author, creating a world all its spooky own, both the terrible mountain winter, and the autumn prairie stretching to the mysterious forest. The characters are well-fleshed, and the author's subtlety in cleverly building the very real horror is worthy of a writer many times published. In addition to the provision of terrors both otherworldly and human, the very real spectre of mental illness is a chord well-strummed. In this historical setting, it goes unrecognized in favor of possible demonic influence.
DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS is an engrossing novel with the power to linger long in the mind.
