Praise for The Devils You Know
"The Devils You Know is a must-read for fans of adventure horror. With plenty of creep and plenty of humor, plus some wicked origin lore, Atwood has crafted the perfect demonic fun-house ride. When can I go again?"
—Kendare Blake, New York Times bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns
"Creepy dolls? Check. Shameful secrets? Check. A sinister old house with a mind of its own? Check. I could keep listing The Devils You Know's enticing attributes all day long—ooh, can't forget suspense, compassion, and deliciously wicked humor—but at some point you'll just have to ignore me, pick up the book, and start reading. And once you do? Ha! Atwood's got you. You're trapped; you can't escape. Or, I should say, you won't want to."
—Christine Heppermann, author of Poisoned Apples and Ask Me How I Got Here
“With The Devils You Know, M.C. Atwood proves to be a master at plotting insidious twists and turns—a Breakfast Club horror for the 21st century, albeit one best savored during daylight hours.”
—S.A. Bodeen, author of The Gardener and The Compound
"A delicious cast of characters propels this cinematic thrill ride. M.C. Atwood’s voice is fresh, smart, bold, and witty—the perfect blend for a terrifying adventure in a legendary house of horrors. The Devils You Know will suck you in from the very first page and spit you out; you'll need a neck brace from its whiplash turns."
—Laurie Stolarz, bestselling author of Blue Is for Nightmares and Shutter
"Atwood debuts with a hefty serving of uncanny gore and alluring malevolence."

I found myself cringing though every time the villain spoke. The dialogue was just over the top and very cliched. He reminded me of a cartoon super villain - all that's missing is the twirling moustache gesture. Nonetheless, the story reminded me of several horror movie plots from the early 2000s. (Thirteen Ghosts and House on Haunted Hill)
I did waffle between three and four stars here for one simple reason. So. Much. Unnecessary. Vulgarity. It seems like every sentence Dylan says is laced with random cursing. At some places, it's very difficult to decipher the real message between the %%%muncher or douc%%$%$ in addition to all the usual four letter words. Ashley and Gretchen aren't any better. I don't mind cursing in books or real life to emphasis a serious point or for occasional shock value. What I do mind is the use of cursing in every exchange between the teenage characters - it's as if the author just couldn't figure out how to write engaging dialogue, so she used a crutch. Because the House, the creatures and the chase are so neat, I'm going with four stars.
