Publisher's Summary

Sweet evil, come deliver us.

Gabriel has spent the last decade trying to forget his best friend, the first boy he ever loved: Jacob. Ripped away from each other in the midst of a family tragedy, Gabriel grieved for Jacob alone, surviving in their small religious town before finally breaking free to attend college, where they found new friends and relationships to pursue. To Gabriel, Jacob became a distant memory.

Until one fateful Halloween night, when the two are reunited, and Gabriel couldn’t be happier. Now, as adults, they can find the comfort and love that they desired in their adolescence. However, it doesn’t take long for Gabriel to realize that time apart has changed Jacob. The once confident and assured boy has grown into an isolated and obsessive adult. And the more Gabriel discovers about the man he loves, the clearer the danger becomes. 

When Jacob reveals to Gabriel his life’s work - his studies into the occult, demonic practices, and his ultimate desire to summon and communicate with Paimon, a King of Hell - Gabriel finds himself dragged into a world that they never asked to be a part of. But the further Gabriel goes, the more they realize that the demonic king is not the true threat and that evil has been beside them all along....

A twisted, supernatural thriller from the acclaimed and best-selling writer Mason Deaver about a love darkened by trauma and turned wicked by obsession.

Horror Takes a Backseat to Exposition

We can say how nice it is that this audiobook is very LGBT forward and presents trans individuals in a positive light (not something common in media, especially horror media) but the story is only 3 hours long and the only intrinsic horror is in the last 35 minutes. Where in it take 4 minutes for the horror to happen, and then we have 31 minutes of lamenting, more exposition, more flowery language about revenge, and then ultimately... the end. I feel like there is a lot cut from this story for time, because certain plot points come out of nowhere and it's very obvious where we go from exposition to 'okay now the story is kicking off'. The characters are very 2 dimensional and it's hard to feel for any of them when we don't get to know any of them really. I can appreciate seeing representation, but it needs to be done right. Don't just make a character gay for the sake of making them gay and then have their queerness be their entire personality. The one motivation in this book is demon summoning but I don't even feel like the character who wants that actually wants that it feels like it's something they were told to do and then 'boom they do it cause so and so said'.

I'd kick this story out of bed for eating crackers in a heartbeat. This is a great example of why drafting and having more than just your friends read your stuff is important.

I'm all about a short horror story...

But honestly that's all that this was. Short. Do I love that this is an LGBT+ forward story? Hell yes! But did I expect more? Absolutely! This felt like the opening credits to a 90s witch tv show... I finished the whole thing because it was short but thoroughly was unimpressed.

Ugh....

I'm sorry, I enjoyed absolutely nothing about this. The story was extremely corny and the narration was bad.

Ummm…

What a letdown. I read the plot and knew it could go either way. Unfortunately, the way it went was awful. The narration was among the worst I’ve ever listened to. If I’m being honest, a 1 star is being generous.

What a waste

If it wasn’t free I’d ask for a credit refund. Poor story with no character development. Save your time.

I'll never get that time back

Bad story and worse performance. I finished because I thought it had to get better. It did not, believe me.

Ehhhh

I feel like the book was too rushed. Too many things were left unanswered. How did Jacob get into demonology? How did his sister die? How does Alex even know where he lives? Was Jacob using Gabriel the whole time? How did he come to live in the same city as him? Did he seek him out? These are some of the many many questions I have.

And just like that, I'm into demon stories!!

Even since I read IWSATB, Mason Deaver is an auto-buy author for me. When I saw that they wrote a horror story I was SO excited cause it's really hard to find good horror stories and even harder to find good queer horror stories.

And of course Mason didn't disappoint. On the contrary, this was even better that I expected. I'm not a fan of the paranormal and that's a big part of the horror genre and the main reason I hardly ever find horror books that I enjoy.

This one though, it's so well done that made me want to read more books with demons!! Even if it's a short story, its characters are well written and developed! In just a few hours, Mason was able to awake my love for the occult, which was asleep for almost a decade now. And let me tell you, it woke up with a craving!!

So, if you are reading this, THANK YOU Mason for all those feelings and for filling a need I had forgotten I had.

Absolutely Superb

I did not know what to think as it started, I have loved masons work since I wish you all the best so kept an open mind and as i got into the story i found myself enjoying it more and more and the last 1 and a half hours was my absolute favourite. It was beautiful and i loved the narrator too. So glad I listened to this!!
