“Dubeau’s ability to build a sense of mystery and suspense is equal to that of authors at the top of the horror food chain...When it comes to literary darkness, it doesn’t get much darker than A God in the Shed, and it doesn’t get much better, either. Wow, just f***ing wow...If you add only one new author to your lexicon this year, J-F Dubeau is the one I’d recommend." ―Shane D. Keene, Horror Talk
"Complex characters, haunting imagery, and a touch of fantasy. This is the page-turner you’ve been looking for!” ―Barnes & Noble
“If you’re looking for some summer reading that is both unsettlingly gory and a fascinating supernatural mystery, you need to pick up A God in the Shed. Dubeau showcases his great imagination...this something readers need to experience for themselves.” ―Wicked Horror
"Move over True Detective. A rich, gothic story of murder and mystery, A God in The Shed is quite possibly one of the most enthralling novels I've read in the last ten years. Dubeau is a force to be reckoned with." ―Jerry Smith, Fangoria Magazine and Blumhouse.com
"A God in the Shed is a masterful work of mystery, a suspenseful cornucopia of carnage and terror." ―Ken Artuz, Founder and Editor of DecayMag
"An utterly terrifying atmospheric thriller, with A God in the Shed author, J.F. Dubeau rightfully creates a worthy space for himself next to the likes of Stephen King, Dan Simmons, Richard Laymon and others." ―Farid-ul-Haq, TheGeekiary.com
"It’s Stephen King’s It meets Jeepers Creepers...I’d definitely recommend A God in the Shed by J-F. Dubeau to readers of dark fantasy and of course horror. It’s a great mix of fresh and established concepts and could signal the arrival of a new bold voice in the world of fiction that makes you so scared you could pee you pants." ―Charlie Hopkins, Fantasy Faction
"This novel puts a wily, sometimes ghastly, twist on the “small-town conspiracy” genre, and what a secret this little village keeps, perhaps protecting humanity from the ultimate unspeakable evil." ―VOYA Magazine
“I rarely get creeped out by books, but there were scenes inside this that made my skin itch. A highly original novel and one I will remember for a long time.” ―Grim Reader Reviews

A GOD IN THE SHED is an incredibly complex novel, literary in format, stunning in execution. Simultaneously the story of individuals and families, a torn and battered community, legacies gone grievously wrong; of murders and suffering, of deaths and grief, this is also the story of a band of young boys, tautly connected, the day they discover the impossible really exists, and the horrendous, permanent (even eternal) consequences of that day and that discovery. This is a novel which captures readers, pinning their imaginations to observe the intrusion of other realities into our own.
What if all those stories were true?
The town of Saint-Ferdinand is a small village with a large problem: an ever growing list of people who have gone missing from its streets. When a decades long investigation ends in an arrest of a serial killer, the residents are relieved that their lives can return to normal. The only problem is that things don’t return to normal. Instead, something more horrible has been unleashed which very few people believe in and even fewer know how to deal with. Layers of secret societies and ancient magics stand between the village’s residents and safety.
Part horror, part dark urban fantasy, A God in the Shed is a thrilling adventure through the dark magic that lies just under the surface of our world. Dubeau paints a vivid picture of an idyllic small town ripped apart by supernatural forces. Compelling, relatable characters and dramatic, sometimes grotesque descriptions engross you in the lives of the people of Saint-Ferdinand. The perfect blend for both avid horror readers and non-horror fans alike.
Eagerly awaiting Book Two.
Rarely do I use the words disturbing, or unsettling when it comes to Horror. I'm jaded by years of it so not much scares me. This book is a remedy for that. Started creeping me out from page one and only intensified from there.
I knew this was going to be a bleak journey very early on when a child’s body is unearthed and nails are driven through the corpses eyes and feet! There is a method behind this madness, but events unfold slowly, and the first half of the book might leave you scratching your head as to what is really going on. Then, there is a collection of body parts discovered inside of numerous fridges outside the trailer of crazy local resident, Sam Finnegan! There are a lot of loose threads and unexplained occurrences early on in the book, however, patience is a virtue, and things do come together.
The book is told through different characters points of view and it works well. It is a stylistic choice used similarly by George R. R. Martin through his Song of Fire & Ice books and other writers as well. I like this a lot. You get to know the characters more by seeing things through their eyes. One of the most interesting people in the book is inspector Stephen Crowley (friend of Aleistair Crowley perhaps?!). Crowley has a dark past, as do most of the residents of the village of Saint-Ferdinand. It is his way or the high way, and when he arrests a suspected serial killer at the start of the book he finds himself unlocking the door to the villages past, to a world where darkness devours and decapitates. Crowley is a multi-layered character, a man with a short fuse, he has a slightly awkward relationship with his son and this causes much conflict later on. He is a difficult one to pin down, in one chapter I despise him, the next I didn’t mind him…weird. Sprightly teenager, Venus McKenzie is another character I really liked. A computer nerd, she makes the bizarre and dark discovery in her shed when she unknowingly traps an evil God (as you do!). I liked Venus’ bravery, especially when confronting and engaging with the thing in the shed. She is a smart girl, though not to the point of arrogance and I really did dig her fire. There are other characters too, though these two are perhaps the more prominent in the story, and the two whose chapters I enjoyed reading the most.
The claustrophobic small town feel is great and there is a seemingly endless darkness that shrouds the novel from start to finish. I rarely get creeped out by books, but there were scenes inside this that made my skin itch. A particular scene concerning Venus’ cat and the God in particular made me cringe and I was glad when it was over. I think this is a highly original novel and one I will remember for a long time. With great characters, stomach-churning scenes of gore and a God filled with nothing but hate, A God in the Shed is a horror fans wet dream. The pacing is pretty damn good from start to finish and I raced through this over the weekend. If I had one little criticism, it would be the ending, which felt a little anticlimactic after everything that preceded, though it didn’t spoil my overall enjoyment of the story enough for me to deduct more than half a star. I believe there is more to come in this series and you can sure as Hell sign me up!
4.5/5 decaying body parts from the Grim Reader.
