Review of DEVIL'S ISLAND by Mark Lukens
DEVIL'S ISLAND is a delightfully scary book with lots of hauntings and terrors beyond hauntings. A small Caribbean island, deserted for a century, is the focus of first a corporate attempt to remodel the mansion into a resort, and second, of a billionaire filmmaker who allegedly wishes to film a documentary. But the Thornhill Manor is no ordinary abandoned residence, and the island is no ordinary island. Nicknamed “Devil's Island” by natives in the 19th century, after a brief period of residence by the Thornhills, the island harbors a force of prehistory, powerful and compelling.
The filmmaker, Nick Gorman, hires a motley crew of psychics and scientists to investigate Thornhill Manor over a 48-hour-period. What they encounter seems tailor-made to their particular fears, a factor which renders the story even more terrifying for the various characters and for the readers as well.
