In “The Devil’s Lieutenant” Suzi Albracht weaves a tale of evil horror that made my skin crawl. With characters that jump off the page I was drawn into the story, following Jake Holyfield as he battles the malevolent forces that seek to destroy those he loves. In a story where good looks bad and bad looks good and shockers lay in almost every chapter, I couldn’t put the book down.
Starting with a horrifying and very gruesome killing Jake sets out investigating similar crimes. Meeting a strange and ethereal young girl at that first crime scene he is given a tool that will come in handy down the line. With dead bodies that have been dissolved into “globs” of fat and blood the story unwinds in growing tension. Interwoven in the story is the relationship between Jake and Bobby Holyfield and their childhood friend Max Wilson. Along with the mysterious Mikael Ruskoff, Jake battles the minions of the Devil himself. Filling out the story are the personal relationships of the characters; important relationships that carry the story forward neatly. Always terrifying and often heart-breaking, The Devil’s Lieutenant is a must read for horror fans.There are minor editing issues which in no way affect the story or my enjoyment in reading it.
Since this is book one of a collection I can hope my favorite characters will continue their war against evil in future editions.
I could almost feel the dark in Albrachts scenes. Her bits of light in the story make the dark all the more horrifying.
Of course when dealing with the devil or his lieutenant, the evil is going to be pervasive as mystery piles on top of mystery. Some scenes are horrifyingly graphic, but that is why we read horror.
Congratulations to Suzi Albracht for crafting another compelling horror mystery.
At first, I had to see the parallels with the ancient German legend of Dr Faust’s pact with the Devil. In return for his soul, Faust is given wishes by the Devil. Mephistopheles helps Faust achieve these goals.
In The Devil’s Lieutenant, Mephistopheles is replaced by Ivanovich, but this is where the stories diverge. Miss Albracht adds her own ingenuity to the original tale, making the story her own.
I found The Devil’s Lieutenant a real page-turner, with plenty of twists, turns and originality to keep me not only interested but fascinated.
It is difficult to talk about Miss Albracht’s treatment of this story without giving away too much, but I did like the twists concerning the serum, and the pills given to one of the main characters by a ‘young girl’.
Miss Albracht’s method of killing immortals is ingenious and ‘believable’.
I recommend The Devil’s Lieutenant to all aficionados of horror, black arts, and fantasy fiction genres.
The story is satisfying as it stands, although it does end rather abruptly, which only gives the reader the hope and expectation that there is a sequel waiting in the wings.
Full marks for The Devil’s Lieutenant and Miss Albracht.
