Publisher's Summary

Danni Morgan thought she knew fear, but she is about to find out what it is to be truly afraid.

Years ago, a young girl ran away from her childhood home and vowed never to go back. It was a place of fear, pain, and misery at the hands of an abusive father.

But now, her father is dead, and she is forced to break that vow and return home - to lay his body to rest and face up to the ghosts of her past.

However, Danni is about to learn that some ghosts are more real than others.

Something beyond her understanding waits for her there, lurking in the shadows. An evil that intends to kill her family and claim her very soul.

Experience supernatural horror in the vein of The Conjuring, Insidious, and the legendary Ghostwatch. The Demonic will get under your skin, send chills down your spine, and have you sleeping with the lights on!

refreshingly terrifying!!!!

Danni Morgan has returned to her childhood home where her mother left her and her father tortured and molested her.  Returning to bury her hated father, Danni brings her supportive husband and two children to her father’s funeral.  There she encounters a demonic evil so great and consuming that no one is safe from its touch.  No one and her life is about to change yet once again as she faces the demonic evil head on.

I expected this to be scary but the level of horror this audiobook induced is by far greater than any I have heard.  I couldn’t put it down!  It was refreshingly terrifying!!!!  If you enjoy horror – this is the book for you!

Lee Mountford built the suspense, horror and mind-numbing terror expertly.  When listening to the book and one begins to catch glimpses out of the corner of one's eye of something moving but nothing there … you know it’s truly a work of art!

Hannibal Hills performed the voices with skill.  His performance left one shuddering to one’s core when the demonic evil spoke.   He was spectacular!  His talent carried the terror beyond the pages and gave them a voice.

Dead Goat Equals No Go

Great horror story that gets going fairly quickly and continues on until the end. The beginning can be a little confusing but picks up and gets you to that haunt quick enough that you aren't waiting until the last 20 minutes of the story to get there. I think this is a blend of two fairly common horror stories but does them both quite well. It definitely has a Amityville Horror feel, as the house seems to want to possess family members and have them kill each other. It also has your basic demonic presence in the house, entities coming after the family willing to stop at nothing to unite them all in death. Mountford did a great job of blending these two together. On the plus side to a otherwise depressing and horror filled story, I would almost call this a coming of age tale for both Alex and Leia.
Hills does a great job narrating this story and the little snipets of ghost voice speckled throughout the story really added to the overall haunt. Make sure you stay tuned after the story for both a little bit of back story and two short stories from different authors.

Excellent Supernatural Horror

I really adored this book. Though, supernatural horror is my all time favorite genre! 'The Demonic' struck me as a new take on an Amityville type story turned on it's head. It's hard to describe what this book is about without giving away significant spoilers so instead I will just say that this is a paranormal horror novel worth reading if you are even vaguely interested in this kind of content. Lee Mountford wrote a tale that is packed full of surprises that truly kept me guesses throughout and Hannibal Hills delivers a fantastic performance (even when voicing demons!). I will be looking for more work by both the author and voice actor!

are you a freaking doctor JOHN?!?!

**I received this audiobook in exchange for a honest review**

ok, first off- Hannibal Hills (yes that's what audible says) did a GREAT job narrating this book. sexy accent and he does a good, creepy voice for the ghost. I like it! the recording was great, top quality.
This is the first thing I've read or listened to by Lee Mountford and wow! He just throws you right in and does not waste any time. The story is well written, flows easy and is creepy. In the audio version (don't know if it's in the other versions) Mr. Mountford includes a note about the story at the end. I won't spoil it for anyone but I'm so glad he did, it made the story even better. If you enjoy creepy ass ghost stories that don't waste any time getting to the good stuff, this one is for you.

Great ghost story!

Absolutely fabulous ghost demon story. Danni and her family go to her childhood home to bury her estranged and creepy father. She strives to let go of the past and move on, however staying in the house only serves to instill new fear. Strange things begin to happen and before the family knows it they are in a real life horror story. Excellent story with an excellent narrator. As an added bonus there are two short stories added on by different authors. I really enjoyed Raven Blackwood short! All recommended!

Woah! I didn't see that coming!

This book surprised me! While it sounded entertaining, I didn't expect to be so consumed in the story. I was stunned by the ending and honestly, I don't recall the last time an ending stunned me.
The narrator, Han Hills was superb! Seriously, he did the demonic voice and that first time, it actually scared me! Again, totally stunned! If you like paranormal with some horror and a bit of gore this is a great book. Most horror books go a bit cheesy but this one didn't. It creeped me out! Good job!!

The Demonic

I enjoyed this story. It sucked me in and I was actually surprised how fast it went. I had fun imagining the antagonists and loved how it ended. I thought Hannibal Hills did a fine job narrating it as well. The effect when the demons were speaking was a bit cheesy, but what are you gonna do?
The way it was playing out at first made me think of Amityville Horror or maybe a little Hell House, but it forged it's own path and I liked the stroll. My only real complaint about books like this is that the spirits/demons/ghosts/(insert paranormal entity here) like to toy with their food too much. The afterward and the short stories that followed the conclusion of the book were fun as well.

This book was given to me for free at my request for my voluntary and unbiased review.

Solid story and narration. Nicely done!

Reviews appear to be a bit mixed for this one. I listened to it on audio and really enjoyed it. I thought the story was well done and I thought Hannibal’s narration was spot on. Nice.

Loved it

This book was scary and well written. I was completely entertained and thought the narrator did a good job. If you like supernatural/horror stories, this is for you.

Also, stay tuned for more after the ending for a couple of very good bonuses!

A good new horror book

Family – father Jon, mother Danni, daughter Leah, son Alex – came to the old Danni’s house to bury her father. In the house, they were waited by some dark, cruel creature. This thing didn’t waste its time and started to terrorize them as soon as they arrived. In two days their lovely family was ruined to the ground.

I was bored for some time. We have a long start before the action started, but then all became in a high-speed movie. I can’t say that the plot is gripping, maybe because I’m so spoiled by many horror movies, but I like pictures that Lee has drawn in this book: pictures of the dead people, that thing, brave but scared children, lonely little town.

Characters are banal. Well, for such a book it’s totally okay, but don’t expect something unusual. They look like the typical family from any The Amityville Horror movie series. Nothing special.

About the environment, I lost it. Even though this book is based on a true story, it feels empty and lonely. Like if the whole surrounding world vanished and nothing left. In our focus only this poor family.

I don’t have too much to tell about this book. It was well enough; I was listening to it during the work time, sometimes it was, as I said, dull, sometimes it was very interesting. Until the very end, I was sure about the rating and my review, but the end changed my opinion about the book. In the end, everything happened so quickly, and there were plenty of unexpected moments. I satisfied.

The Demonic is one of the good new horror books for adults to read. At least, it worth listening time.

Hannibal Hills is a narrator of this book. I like how he managed to create a voice of a dark creature very much. That was chilling! The narration is clear, no problem with separating the characters. Good work!

A wonderful ghost story

Listened to this in my car on my daily commute, and I this one deginitely helped to keep me awake!

The story is well written and narrated, as I have come to expect from the excellent pairing of the writer and narrator (having previously listened to the just as excellent Horror In The Woods).

I would highly recommend this to any fan of the supernatural genre, as it is a great example of a classic ghost story.

A literary James Wan movie

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a classic haunting/ghost story. If you're looking for some classic literary horror fun, you could do a lot worse than The Demonic.

What did you like best about this story?

Mountford's writing is very cinematic. If you close your eyes whilst listening, you'll imagine you're in a James Wan movie.

Have you listened to any of Hannibal Hills’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not, but this one was pretty good.

Just awful

Amateurish, cliched, over-baked writing. Unimaginative characters with over the top, clunky dialogue. Zero chills. Predictable story line and devices (plot very close to other similar titles currently available). And the narration performance is just awful. The narrator is cursed with monotonous rhythym through the whole book and delivers dialogue with very little character or inspiration. Spare yourself.
