Horror & Occult, Literature & Fiction, Mystery & Suspense, Thriller & Psychological Thriller

The dark saga of Daemortis continues, as we follow twins, Claire and Carly Turnquist, in the midst of a falling out. After a rather nasty fight between the two, Claire encounters Daemortis face-to-face, and her world is forever changed. As a result she loses her sanity; hardly eating, hardly bathing, she becomes empty and devoid of life. She is then committed to Briorlight, an institution that houses kids and teens with mental disabilities and criminal records. There she meets Luke and Jasmine, who have also seen Daemortis prior to being institutionalized. Upon being committed though, she becomes interested in learning more about Daemortis, and if it has any weaknesses. She then learns Daemortis doesn’t take kindly to this, and warns her not to interfere. Along with plaguing nightmares of past victims, Claire isn’t fazed in the slightest, but becomes more convinced to keep searching for a way to stop it. However, she’ll soon learn of Daemortis’s true wrath, and what a terrifying place Purgatory really is.

A short while ago I read and reviewed a phenomenal book called Daemortis written by the insanely talented Lainey Miller, and I loved it book lovers! Daemortis is a thrilling and unique novel that captivated (as well as terrified!) me from start to finish and so I, of course, had to read the second book in the series! Daemortis: Purgatory is book two in this extraordinary saga and is a thrilling, exciting and action-packed novel that will have its readers turning the pages with haste into the early hours of the morning. As I began to read Daemortis: Purgatory, I immediately knew that this was going to be a fast-paced novel, and now that I have finished the story I can happily write that the book is just this! It is an intriguing horror/mystery thriller that captivated me with its heart-pounding moments and phenomenal literature courtesy of the author Lainey Miller.

Before I let you lovely readers know more about Daemortis: Purgatory I think it is only right that I first introduce you to the premise of book one by sharing a snippet from my Daemortis review!

“Daemortis is a thrilling book that is also terrifying, and in Daemortis the reader will be introduced to a haunting ‘ancient figure of myth and legend,’ Daemortis. Daemortis is an evil figure that takes children and keeps their souls for eternity, and when children start to disappear in a quaint town rapidly, it grabs the attention of the protagonist of the novel, Alyssa Grand. Alyssa begins to investigate the strange disappearances and when she learns that Daemortis is real and taking and hunting children, she will do everything to try and stop it. Will Alyssa be able to stop Daemortis before it is too late?”

Now how wonderful does Daemortis sound?! The sensational novel captivated me from beginning to end. Daemortis: Purgatory will introduce the reader to twins, Claire and Carly Turnquist and after a ‘nasty fight,’ Claire comes face to face with the dreaded Daemortis, and when she does, her life changes drastically. The encounter has caused Claire to lose her way, and a part of her mind and so she is soon committed to a mental institution, and it is here that the reader will meet many new and fascinating characters. In the mental institution, known as Briorlight, Claire will meet Luke and Jasmine, and these two have also met Daemortis and when the three talk with each other they start to think, does the Daemortis have any weakness? The reader will follow these characters, and many more on their journey to uncover and learn more about the infamous Daemortis and this book lovers is the premise of this sensational novel!

The story of Daemortis: Purgatory is a stellar one that had me intrigued from the very start. I love any story with a horror theme, so I knew from the beginning that Daemortis: Purgatory would deliver thanks to these themes and wow did it! From the start the reader is immediately thrust into the thick of the story, the reader will feel as if their breath has been knocked out of them by how fast the reader is pushed into the thick of the plot. I love this approach with a novel, especially if it is a thriller/mystery based one; what is the point in waiting for the action to start? None in my opinion so that is why I love how the excellent author Lainey Miller decided to throw her readers into the story; it made for an exhilarating read, one that I would recommend to all of you lovely readers!

Daemortis: Purgatory captured my attention immediately thanks to the fast-paced story, enigmatic characters, and thrilling plot. As I read Daemortis: Purgatory I was honestly in awe; it was like a present was being unwrapped before my eyes and the more the pages turned, the more excited I got for the finale.

Lainey Miller is a newly discovered author of mine, and I have to confess book lovers that I am kicking myself for not having found Miller’s work sooner! I am frustrated that I have not before because never before have I been so entertained with a mystery and horror novel!

Not only is Lainey Miller an outstanding writer for her ability to thrust her readers into the thick of the story, but she also is because she was able to describe all of the events that unravel perfectly. Every event and moment and even place is flawlessly described with a wealth of detail which in turn keeps the reader turning the pages.
