MESSENGER

A little bit of Hell has just come to Earth.
Would you like to become someone else? Well, someone else is about to become you. He will share your heart and your mind, he will seep into your body, he will feel all your ecstasy...

And then he will take you on a slaughterfest.

Occult rites. Ritualistic murder.

You have become possessed.
But not by a ghost.
Not by a demon.
It's something much worse.

Just as God has a messenger, so does the devil, and that messenger is here, now, in your town. He has a message to send...

The Messenger.

A diabolical novel of ultimate erotic horror...

Messenger was my first look into the works of Edward Lee, and I have to say that I am fairly impressed with him. I found out about him through Brian Keene's Urban Gothic, which was a tribute to Lee's work and was a very interesting novel in its own right. However, at times it felt like I was reading Laymon again, and not the good Laymon, but these moments were few in number.A small American town has fallen victim to a mysterious being that ensnares its victims to commit horrible crimes, even if they were the sweetest people in the world before it came to them. This being sets out to spread its message of the baser nature of how the world operates, causing a recently-widowed mother to fight it off with the help of a policeman and a seemingly showy professor.I have to say that I did not see the plot twist involving one of the main characters at the end of the novel at all, and I was genuinely surprised to say the least. At times the language and sex seem a bit too gratuitous for my tastes, but the plot itself manages to counterbalance it, as well as a strong female protagonist. I'm glad I was able to read this one first out of the books Lee has written. Very nicely done.read more
