    1 thought on “Devil's Oven”

    1. “The darkness – it’s all around you,” she said. “You’re going to let it in.”DEVILS OVEN is kind of a modern day take on Frankenstein with a delicate twist of innocence and ignorance. The monsters of Benedict’s third novel don’t conform to the stereotype, more often than not masquerading as normal people with their motives a true reflection of the evil that lurks within.Ivy is a lonesome and hopelessly lovable character who stumbles upon the hacked pieces of a man in a nearby ha [...]

    2. This was my first horror novel in a while, and it's an injustice to Devil's Oven to term it only horror--it's actually far more than that. From the opening scene the story and its characters sucked me in. I read the entire book in several sittings. The sense of place is very real and evokes memories of early Stephen King. Benedict creates an insular little world in Devil's Oven and, by the time I was a third into the book, I felt like I lived there. Her writing is to die for: beautiful prose tha [...]

    3. I am a huge fan of Laura's. I got to meet her at Thrillerfest a few years ago where I picked up a copy of her book Isabella Moon and fell in love with her voice and style. Devil's Oven went beyond the expectation I have when I pick up one of her books.This book is written with a wit that is so unique. The story is seamless. The characters literally jump off the page. I don't want to get too much into the story and spoil anything. If you like to sit on the edge of your seat, loosing yourself in a [...]

    4. Devil's Oven was a twisted read into the lives of some very "touched" characters. The whole magnetism towards the Devil's Oven was compelling. Each character had their own need to be near or stay on the Devil's Oven. Sometimes it was comfort but mostly it was a morbid compulsion. I liked the way Laura chiseled each character. It made you want to know each motive and follow their bloody steps. The Devil's Oven is a read that will entice you to turn the page and dare you to read further.

    5. This was a good story to read during the month of October. It was a different take on the frankenstein theme that was disturbing and unusual. When Ivy, the lonely seamstress, finds the dismembered parts of a murder victim, she decides to put him back together. What ensues afterwards is truly frightening. An enjoyable Halloween read.

    6. Needs a Tad MoreInteresting cross between Frankenstein and Pinocchio as a shy mountain girl sews the dismembered body parts of man back together and reanimates him with a drop of her blood so that she can have a friend/lover of her own. Of course things don't go well as he starts killing off town folk. The author then injects his opposite into the story, setting up good vs evil. Unfortunately the author never explains how the mountain nourishes our Jolene through several incarnations. What is th [...]

    7. Laura Benedict's Devil's Oven makes an unknown Appalachian mountain a major character and driving force in the elegiac novel of love gone wrong. Ivy Luttrell lives a lonely life as a seamstress in the shadow of the mountain. Longing for a man to love, she often walks the trails at night. On one such walk, she finds a dismembered body of a man who had been beautiful in life. She stitches him back together in a takeoff on Frankenstein. And like Frankenstein, the man comes to life only to become a [...]

    8.

    9. Noir murder mystery storytelling at it's best. There are lots of twists and turns in Devil's Oven, and of course, many questions, but by the end, the true heroes are given their due. Even though questions remain, it isn't difficult to feel satisfied after reading this book. A good story, good characters and a good mystery.
