I recently had the opportunity to read Devil Tree by Steve Vernon. Admittedly, it might not have been a book I would have picked up to read, but it would only have been due to the fact that it wasn't even on my radar. The blurb on reads just like this:The roots of evil run deeper than you can ever imagine.Lucas Sawyer and his wife Tamsen find themselves marooned in the heart of a mid-nineteenth century wilderness forest. They are rescued by Jonah Duvall, a mysterious woodsman abiding in this st [...]

And in time Lucas and Tamsen will discover a strange, gigantic tree that sits in the middle of t [...]

Recently, I joined a book review club on Facebook (Brutally Honest Book Club). Our first book to read and review was Steve Vernon’s The Devil Tree. I really wished we’d picked another book now that I’ve read this one. I’m not good at writing bad reviews, but I really could not connect with this story at all.First, let me start off with some positive aspects of The Devil Tree. The author has a very good grasp of descriptive words and phrases. I loved his use of similes and metaphors. The [...]

I totally enjoyed this novel. An interesting juxtaposition of rough-edged, alternative-history-frontier horror, Supernatural venues, three-dimensional characters (some of whom, like Duvall, were two dimensions of evil and one dimension of good), twisted plot convolutions, and absolutely wonderful descriptive imagery, “Devil Tree” inspired me to pause often and savor a lyricism, but also to race forward to “see what’s next!” There’s so many layers, so much concealment, rather like loo [...]

My very first novel-length e-book. Devil Tree is a historical horror and I would definitely call it a "thinking human" kind of story. Let me tell folks a bit about Devil TreeVIL TREE is a horror novel set in mid-nineteenth century North America. The novel opens with Lucas Sawyer and his wife Tamsen being cast from their raft into the twisting waters of the Greensnake River. They are rescued by Jonah Duvall, a woodsman dwelling in a strange hidden valley with his native wife Jezebel and her son C [...]

When I was 12, a friend of the family took me to see "The Deer Hunter". It was a fairly heavy film, but all I really remember is the scene during the main characters time in the river POW camp. Years later I watched the movie to see what I might have missed. It was still the Russian Roulette that stands out. As I read Devil Tree by Steve Vernon, I was struck by much of the same feelings.I am fairly intelligent (I would like to think)but there were moments when the story seemed to slip away from [...]

If you are a person who likes your horror fast-paced and in your face, this is not the book for you. It moves slowly and builds on atmosphere rather than gore, something that tends to annoy the less patient horror fan reared on zombies and splatterpunk. As a fan of both types of horror, I greatly enjoyed this read. It is far more in the vein of Poe than King, but I liked the heavy atmospheric style of fear and the characters were well developed. The mystery was never fully explained, but I like [...]

In a valley near a river int he wood near Indian territory lies a tree. A tree that sends out its roots throughout the valley and demands blood. It is in this valley that the godsman Lucas and his wife Tamsen find themselves wrecked and at the mercy of not just the man Jonah Duvall and his Indian bride Jezebel, but also at the mercy of the tree.I decided to dip my toe into magical realism with this book to see if I like it, and alas discovered I do not.The book itself is well written exploring s [...]

I will start this review by saying that had I not been reading it for a FB group review 1. I would not have picked it to read 2. I would have put it down long before the end.This book was just NOT for meI found nothing scary in it, other than I thought I needed to be high or drunk to read it and the endless meaninless describtions bored my socks off.I lost the plot a few chapters it nothing the 2 main men said made any sense to me the 2 main women just confused me and the describtion of sex and [...]

Just finished Devil Tree.This book is *evil*. Don't know what or how this body of work came into existence, but I think Steve went to some very dark places to bring it back into the light. Even then, it's a dark piece of horror fiction, extremely moody, and creepy as all hell. If this was a movie, it'd be one of those flicks where you would notice the absence of music, where the only sounds are those made by the characters, or things pulling themselves free of the earth, and where you might have [...]
