And the reviews keep pouring in:

“[B]ring on the devils and make way for Milton.”
New York Times Book Review

This book is going to be big, and it’s going to be popular, and it absolutely deserves to be both of these things. You should buy it, and read it, and let it scare you stupid.”
National Post

“A chilling novel for readers who like their horror presented with literary flair.”
Fort Worth Star-Telegram (US)

“In the sly, creepy and often-horrific The Demonologist, Andrew Pyper knows how to get under the skin of even the most rational reader.”
The Columbus Dispatch (US)

“Proper creepy.”
Chatelaine Magazine

“With THE DEMONOLOGIST, Andrew Pyper has created a truly blood-curdling work that will have readers looking over their shoulders and on edge from beginning to end. Whereas other classics in the genre have focused on battling evil, this novel seeks to understand the very nature of evil from its origins. The fact that he is able to breathe life into the book’s plausibility creates an unsettling feeling and completely satisfying horror read without ever becoming clichéd in the process.”

“Taut, intelligent and utterly gripping…[The Demonologist] is a fascinating exploration of the darkest corners of the human psyche.”
-Raven Crime Reads

“* * * * [Four Stars]…Intense and satisfying.”

“The plot rarely flags and remains difficult to predict, twisting elegantly rather than through clear contrivances, and the Miltonic and biblical echoes add an extra layer to what is, at its heart, a dissection of depression and an argument for hope.”
Winnipeg Free Press
