    1. UPDATE: 99 cents on Kindle US today 8-12-17Holy crap on a cracker! I put this book off for a long time because I had seen so many negative reviews when it first came out, but I'm sure glad I decided to start reading what I want because this book was down right creepy! ***SOME SPOILERS***Amanda Verner is secretly seeing a boy named Henry in the woods and you know what they are up to! Then when he finds out Amanda is pregnant he leaves her; she's thinking he is going to marry her. NOT! Amanda keep [...]

    2. This book was a disappointment. It was described as Little House on the Prairie meets Stephen King. Well, you can take both out of it, because it's neither scary nor fun. It bears little resemblance to my beloved Little House on the Prairie because the people in that series had common sense and the main character wasn't a whining little feather-brained twit.This book is not a horror. It's a psychological tale, which is to say, it is boring as fuck. Don't expect anything to happen. Don't expect a [...]

    3. So if in some twisted universe, a Laura Ingalls Wilder type accidentally got pregnant and moved onto a farm that may or may not be cursed, would she:a. abandon her home and force her sister to raise her child until she can return for itb. lose the baby and fear that it watches her from the woods with its dead eyesc. run for her life as Ma and Pa go crazy and chase everybody with pickaxesd. find a boy with a twisted smile who helps her battle the unknown forces and live happily ever after with hi [...]

    4. HEY, LOOK! I MADE A WALLPAPER OF THIS! Stop by the blog to download this and many more!I may or may not have pissed my pants after reading this book.Spoiler: I definitely did piss my pants after reading this book.Horror aficionados, come and meet your match (made in hell). After reading Rin Chupeco's Girl From the Well and The Suffering, I've been on a frenzy hunt for the next book that would tickle my scary bone and leave me trembling in the night. I'm not sure if you guys know, but I reli [...]

    5. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/3.5 Stars“I’m starting to believe that hell is everywhere.”This was a bit of a pleasant surprise.Amanda Verner’s family has always lived in mountain territory, but after a rough winter the previous year and the farmers all warning to prepare for an even worse one her father decides the family should relocate to the prairie. It is rumored that woods surround the area which will provide work for Pa in the form of furniture making and there's suppose [...]

    6. Flip me over with a spatula. This book did the very rare job of truly giving me the creeps. I mean, really and truly. Hairs on the back of my neck stood up, I had moments of forgetting to breathe and it was like a really bad idea to read it in the dark with the Kindle light turned down low. I had to keep cuddling my cats for comfort. This is one of those books that seems to start with a fairly low-key plot and energy, still very intriguing and interesting, not boring in anyway but I did NOT expe [...]

    7. Okay. It might be YA, but to me, it's horror all the way, baby.I may not care all that much about old-tyme american settlement, little house on the prairie - type fiction, but there's a goodly number of creepy frontier horror out there in the wide world, and I seem to be stumbling upon them a bit more in the last few years. As I was reading this one, I was reminded about how much I like my Rasputina collection, and a special little song in the Violent Femmes collection, too, but more than anythi [...]

    8. RATING FOR THE FIRST 3/4: Low 2 starsRATING FOR THE LAST 1/4: Solid 5 starsI am REALLY stuck between 3 and 4 for this.Until the AWESOME finale, it was actually more like 2.5 stars.I can't tell you how much I was anticipating this book. When I got an ARC, I whooped and danced and started reading it the minute it was in my little hands, expecting that I would have it finished within the night. It wasn't that long, I love horror, and Amy Lukavics seems like a really cool lady. So I was so excited f [...]

    9. Well there is one thing I can say about this book was short! Reading Amy Lukavics 'Daughters unto Devils' was one of the most disappointing reading experiences of my life. When a publisher walks up to you and says, 'You must read this! It's like Little House on the Prairie meets The Exorcist', expectations are naturally high. This book fell oh, so short.The characters were completely flat and two dimensional, and Lukavics' world building leaves a lot to be desired. Her language choices felt forc [...]

    10. Going into this I was expecting something magnificent, something horrifying and original but as I started it, instead I realized more than anything, this would more than likely just be an odd, unusual read and not at all creepy or scary. In fact it took me a very long time to really understand Amanda and even like her. I'm still not sure that I like her, but oh boy, did we get a good hard, long look inside the inner workings of her mind.*shudders* This read might have started with little interes [...]

    11. ★★★½Daughters Unto Devils is a standalone, young-adult story of horror written by Amy Lukavics. This title is her debut novel and I found it very promising. Although some parts felt a bit too simple at times for my personal taste, I thought Ms. Lukavics excelled at creating a creepy and dark atmosphere which I thoroughly enjoyed. By setting this story in the 1800's and isolating the characters from help when faced with a pretty constant threat of doom, my attention was easily held. Oh, sh [...]

    12. One of the perks of knowing the author is getting an early read! This book is utterly terrifying. UTTERLY. TERRIFYING.

    13. Okay, that was pretty creepy! I actually had to create a new GR shelf for this book. I have never read a YA horror novel before, and Daughters Unto Devils definitely sets the bar! I am seriously creeped out! Yes that was quite the scary story there!Amanda Verner has lived her entire life with her family in a mountain cabin. However after a horrible winter that left them traumatized to the brutal conditions of mountain living, her father takes the advice of Henry the post boy about moving to a pr [...]

    14. It’s late summer, the time of year when I read all the horror novels I can in anticipation of the fall rush. This one is definitely the scariest, the creepiest, the most riveting I’ve found this year. While it’s YA, it’s scarier than plenty of adult horror I’ve read. Take Little House on the Prairie, add religious mania, rural isolation, demons, ghost babies, the scariest cabin in the woods of all time, and you’ve got yourself a book you really shouldn’t read alone at night. — Je [...]

    15. I devoured this in two sittings, late at night and as soon as I woke up the next morning. I knew I'd love it after only the first few pages; the atmospheric, slow-building horror found its way under my skin, and though there were quite a few unsettling details in the beginning and first half, I was surprised to find myself afraid to walk the halls in the dark. This story about sisterhood and love and pure evil--not to mention old-fashioned husband/wife dynamics--builds to one of the most satisfy [...]

    16. "I'm starting to believe that hell is everywhere."Amy Lukavics breathes some eerie horror back into YA literature with her debut novel Daughters Unto Devils. And dang, is it a good debut. It is being coined "Little House on the Prairie meets Stephen King" which I feel is the best way to describe this dark little yarn.This historical story follows 16-year-old Amanda who lives with her family in a secluded house surrounded by woods. The only contact she's ever had with a boy her age is a messenger [...]

    17. داستان یه جو تیره و دارکی داشت که نویسنده تا پایان این جو رو حفظ کرد ، و از این جهت خیلی خوب بود.و معلومه ایده خوبی هم داشته و خوبم تونسته بپردازه داستانو ولی هیجان و کشش نداشت داستان.درواقع بنظرم پتانسیلش خیلی بالاتر از این پایان بود ، حداقل یه صد دویست صفحه دیگه هم میتونست بنو [...]

    18. I heard about this book from Gretchen McNeil and was instantly intrigued. This story is so creepy, it's delicious. The overall story is a bit of a slow burn. The setting and family life make for a very Oregon-Trail-like feel and it definitely adds to the atmosphere. By the time the last 1/4 of the book was unfolding, I was sitting straight up in my chair, turning the pages as fast as I could. Overall, it was a quick read with one hell of an ending. I'm still not entirely sure what happened in pa [...]

    19. This book is called Little House on the Prairie as written by Stephen King, and yes . . . yes it was. It was horrifying. It was grotesque. It was really, really scary. And it had a ton of potential, I can see why this debut book caught a publisher's eye, and I can see where Lukavics is definitely one to watch. I am not the hugest fan of horror, being as I am a big ol' chicken, but the premise of it really grabbed me. I did feel that some of the potential was not realized. The book is quite short [...]

    20. I have zero bad things to say about this book. A YA horror that doesn't skimp on creepiness or character development, with a plot that consistently raises the stakes and twists and turns in a way that feels completely organic. A lot of horror can feel like it's written around this huge climax that doesn't really deliver. Not so here.If you like horror but don't read Young Adult, you should make an exception. It's as good and as creepy as any adult horror novel.

    21. Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics4.25 stars“It was the land itself. It had been soured by an infection of constant panic, hate and fear.”Amanda Verner isn’t the same person she was before last winter. Before she saw something in the woods. Before her mother gave birth to her baby sister who was born deaf and blind. Before she met the boy that she meets in the woods. Now she’s pregnant with the boy’s child and she doesn’t know what to do. Her father has decided it’s time to leav [...]

    22. Sinfully good and devilishly terrifying – finally someone has written a real horror novel for young adults! If I could give it more than 5 Stars, I would!Read the rest of the review, here: memyshelfandi/2015/09/

    23. The thing about this book that reeled me in was the main character falling victim to cabin fever and how that event led to her losing her grip on sanity. Sounds intriguing, no? Unfortunately, this happens before the beginning of the book, and in order to build suspense, it is not revealed to us until mid-way through. It was a whole lot of waiting around for something to happen. Which could have been a device to make the whole "life in a cabin" type deal seem more realistic. Who am I to know?Ther [...]

    24. 4.5OH.DARK.GODDESSThis book was so good, so simple, creepy and dark. Now I wish I had bought it instead of just getting it from the library. I have a book test where I flip to page 69 and read, if it draws me in I buy it, if not I see if the library has it or I wait. There was so much talk about what a sinner the MC was that I wrinkled my nose and put it back on the shelf BUT I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN IT. Because the MC talking about what a sinner she is and the devil and how she is going to be punis [...]

    25. سه و نیمکتاب میتونست خیلی خیلی بهتر و هیجان‌انگیزتر باشهاین رو بر اساس 30-40 درصد پایانی کار میگم.به شدت تلخ بود فضای کار. از همون ابتدا این تلخی و سنگینی حس میشد. یک جوّ به شدت تلخ، تیره و سنگینو نویسنده تا انتها اون رو حفظ کرد، بهش تبریک میگمپرداخت کار خوب بود و ایده‌ی بسیار خوب [...]

    26. Wanted to keep up my tradition of reading horrors at night in the dark. I was expecting this to be like every other YA horror I've read and not be scared in the slightest. Yeah. I was wrong. Extremely creeped out right now.

    27. See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! My copy was an ARC I got from the publisher via NetGalley.Diversity Rating: 0 - What Diversity? Racial-Ethnic: 0QUILTBAG: 0Disability: 0Intersectionality: 0YA is in need of some good horror novels and Daughter Unto Devils is ready to answer that call and scare your clothes off this fall in a very nonromantic way. Also good for Thanksgiving if you're especially angry at crimes committed against Native Americans over the last six centuries or so. ANYWAY. Th [...]
