One thought on “Deliver Us from Evil


  1. One of my favourite books The main character s development is chillingly charted from child to adult in a beautifully woven plot I have re read this book many times and will no doubt do so again.


  2. Originally published on my blog here in April 2003.Deliver Us From Evil, a historical horror novel, starts at the end of the Cromwellian Commonwealth in England, just before the restoration of the monarchy and the reign of Charles II Captain Foxe, an officer in the militia based at Salisbury, begins an investigation into a series of ritual murders at ancient monuments the cathedral and Stonehenge are the best known , and becomes convinced that they are connected to strange events in his home vil [...]


  3. It s been so long since I ve journeyed into the world of horror, that I devoured this book like some blood starved demon Actually, to be fair, this starts off pretty slow The first section, as the main characters are introduced and the murders begin to happen, was a bit of a tedious read and I found myself wondering whether this was the book I remembered reading years ago But once Robert s family has been killed and he falls in with Lightborn and Milady, the action really starts up.The story its [...]


  4. Appearing to be a Prequel to his Lord of the Dead Also called The Vampyre , this work furthers the realm Holland constructed with the pseudo fictional account of Byron s life Those who have read The vampyre may remember the enigmatic, yet evilly romantic Lovelace from Byron s travel to Turkey soon after his transformation, who is the main character of this work Holland churns out pseudo fictional storytelling, such as the Lord Rochester s attempt to kidnap Lady Elizabeth I think that was her na [...]


  5. Tom Holland is a master of literate historical horror and it is disappointing to see that GoodReads does not seem to include his 1996 book Supping With Panthers which is a wonderful romp through the dark side of late nineteenth century Imperial India The five stars are as much for this book as for Deliver Us From Evil which is set in the seventeenth century world of European witchcraft and black magic He tells a great story and his corpus is a continuing riff on the tropes of Gothic fiction and [...]


  6. A truly abysmal reading experience Putting the aside the hackneyed and derivative plot for a moment, the actual writing and editing, should there have been some, which frankly I doubt resulted in prose that reads like the worst cheap porn writing ever I don t mean erotic I mean clumsy sentences, dreadful grammar, feeble attempts at description I had to research the author, just to reassure myself that his work hadn t been written in another language and translated by a poorly featured computer p [...]


  7. The third in Holland s vampire series is the most ambitious, and I d say the best written, of the lot, although because it s set earlier than the others in this case, the English Civil War and the Restoration there is a sad lack of Lord Byron in it The Earl of Rochester essentially substitutes, and there s backstory on a key character from the first novel, not to mention a broad cross section of luminaries like John Milton, John Aubrey, John Dee lots of Johns and Rabbi Judah Loew I don t think t [...]


  8. Interesting romp through history with a different explanation for some well known events My only grouse is that the ending felt somewhat contrived, which to be fair, is a problem with many stories where the antagonist has been setup to be a nearly all powerful menace is that the means by which the defeat of that antagonist is encompassed frequently feels poorly done as was the case here.But other than that, the story was compelling and the characters were well drawn The twist to one major charac [...]


  9. Vamps, ghouls, demons, golems, the English Civil War and Lord Byron all mixed together in a literate yet scary swashbuckling romp has to be read to be believed over the top most of the way through, but tremendous fun



  10. Not a bad read, easy to put down tho still a page turner Very different take on the usual vampire novels His non fiction books are the best I have ever read Keep em comin mate


  11. A good reada mix of history and fantasy, easy to read, moves at a pace rider haggardIn Style ,a victorian adventure.
