Then, there's the humor. I did LMAO frequently. The belladonna twist - that still tickles me and I finished the book a couple days ago. The humor, and the manipulation of the scarecrow symbol, made me think about that movie Pumpkinhead. You know that scene when you can see Pumpkinhead's tennis shoes? This story has intentional tennis shoes popping out all over the place, especially for people familiar with witchcraft and hoodoo or the horror genre.
This is a quick read, I think the page count is off slightly if it's for book 1 only. It contains quite a few different characters, all of which have different horrors going on in their life. Part of me was entertained by all the different characters and story lines, and part of me is wondering how and when they will connect. Overall entertaining and interesting read. Can't wait to read parts 2 and 3.
This series does need to be read in order. In book one we follow quite a few different characters, this book picks up where book one left off. The characters lives are starting to blend together, making it seem more cohesive, each one has different haunts that pull you into the story line. I am quite fascinated by this authors work. In the first book the characters aren't really tied together so you are left wondering how he is going to pull off this story line, but it is coming together quite nicely. If you are a horror fan this is definitely for you!!
This series does need to be read in order for complete understanding. The first book seemed like a lot of characters that did not blend completely. In book 2 the characters lives started mixing together and we gained complete comprehension of the story line. In book three we are blown out of the water by a fast paced, unique horror story. I think it is fantastic how the author used the characters to raise the bar on the horror level. Planting! I mean genius. Can't wait to read more from this author.
I heard that is was a great book and it would be right up my alley.
As soon as I started reading I was impressed, the momentum picked up the author was very descriptive I was like damn this is going to be an amazing book.
Then I was thrown a whole lot of characters. Now normally three or four different characters I have no problem with. But there were more than that and even though it all flowed together eventually at times I just seemed to be like okay wait what character are we dealing with now.
The story starts of with a witch and a preacher. And of course this witch has cursed the descendants of this preacher. As time has gone on there seems to be a curse on the small town of Crossfall and it all starts with one character and his actions.
Then we fast forward to Maddy. She is a wife to Vic who is very abusive and this time she has had enough of his mess. She ends up killing him and burying him in the field that the witch and preacher man lay along with the broom. And once Vic is buried he comes up from the ground known as Tatterdemon.
We have Wendy, the sheriff, deputy Earl, the mailman and the so called circus freak. They each have their own personal drama and skeleton's in their closet and it all comes together nicely as the story picks up and progresses. We watch how they all come back to life because of the Tatterdemon and their secrets slowly start coming to out.
The past has to come to the future to end the rein of terror that is being caused but will it stop?
The author did a great job with the graphic portions of the story and I found myself getting the shivers and going OMG what is going to happen next.
If you are looking for good horror, zombies then I suggest you get this book.
The issues I had with the book is one grammar. There was one or two spots that had the wrong type of grammar used.
Second the author used the wrong character name a couple of times.

Set within rural Nova Scotia, the story revolves around a witch that was murdered, and 300 years later, the evil within her soul flows through the town of Crossfall and affects many of its citizens with fatal and graphic results. Speaking of violence, the whole book is “splattered” with dismemberment, gunshots, brutality, and rape so it might not be for younger readers.
While the descriptive violence and swearing is common within the story, it’s well written and services to continue the story. More than once, I found myself chuckling over a particularity witty “one-liner”, or sarcastic bit of dialogue. I suspect Mr. Vernon has a “dry” sense of humour, I hope to share a drink with him someday and test that out.
If I’m to say anything negative about the story is that it didn’t read like rural Nova Scotia to me. It reminded me more of a prairie town, almost the set of “The Dukes of Hazard”, but that didn’t take anything away from my enjoyment.
In closing, if you’re looking for the PERFECT harvest time read, and with Halloween only a month away who isn’t, I suggest you grab yourself “The Tatterdemon”. I truly feel that this will be a story I come back too in future years when I want to read a tale of good vs. evil with, clever writing and buckets of blood!
My review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
