a haunting tale of historical horror
by Steve Vernon
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 strange valley with his wife Jezebel and thier son Cord. Brooding over all stands the Devil Tree - a huge evil jackpine that has summoned them to this valley to feed upon their collective emotions and their unnatural offspring. Part earth spirit, part elder demon - the tree is farming them.
The characters are bound in a tightening noose of of undeniable doom. As winter sets in they must face the tree's unholy fury in an utterly horrific finale.
DEVIL TREE is a story that will take you further into the heart of unimaginable horror.
Furthermore, DEVIL TREE is the darkest novel that I have EVER written.

"With Cronenberg-esque body terror, a Wendigo-type sub plot, and a wicked tree that would give the vegetation in the original EVIL DEAD a run for its money, DEVIL TREE is a best bet for horror fans tired of not being scared by horror fiction." - THE HORROR FICTION REVIEW
