Reviewers gush about Saint Nellie!

The reviews from professionals reading Saint Nellie are trickling in, and these reviewers are hyped about the old one-eyed witch!

Jennifer Hass at readerviews.com (full text) says:

“I think the best way is to say right away that “Saint Nellie” is a horror filled dark novel – so horrible and disgusting it is downright spectacular. I haven’t read a horror novel this great in a very long time…maybe not ever… ”

“Saint Nellie is not only crude and full of racial violence but its portrayal is so “on point,” right down to the nastiest of Southern Baptists churches that people wouldn’t dare to admit exists in this world. Add a little black magic, a sweet mixed southern girl, her mother, and a witch and you’ve got one hell of a ride. I read until I was done. I could not put it down and I couldn’t even sleep that night. Saint Nellie is on point. This is what I call horror – 5 stars!”

Monica Davis, a prominent literary blogger writes:

“The one thing that let me down was the ending. Not because it wasn’t a good one but because I was hoping the story would continue and keep continuing…┬áThis seems to be this authors first published work and I will say right here and now that I will read anything that he releases in the future.”

What Readers are Saying About Saint Nellie

Check out what reviewers on Amazon.com think of Saint Nellie!

“Was not sure what to expect from this book but it drew me in and I got hooked! Interesting story line combined with religious fanaticism, highly unusual characters and demons make for a fascinating if somewhat violent read! Strongly recommended if you like to read something a bit different!”

“quite amazing!”

“Let me say that I devoured this book in less than 24 hours. Normally I don’t have the time to read so quickly, and even if I wanted to, some books just don’t flow that way. This one does and keeps you on the edge as well.”

“This is a great book and I strongly recommend it to all that may stumble on this diamond in the rough. 5 Stars and I can’t wait to see more from this Nashville native author in the future.”

“Captivating…got me out of a reading slump.”

“I was impressed with what seemed like a perfect ease of dialogue between the characters and felt very involved in theirs story. I look forward to more from this author…hopefully a sequel.”

Novel Description:

“Saint Nellie is a suspense novel that takes place in a small Southern town, where an undercurrent of chaotic violence lingers behind paranoid sneers and angry church sermons, bleeding into the lives of its residents as effortlessly as an afternoon iced tea.

Mia Taylor is a fifteen year-old spending a stifling Summer in Blackwell, Tennessee, trying her best to avoid standing out in a place where old ideas still have deep roots. However, what gnaws at the heart of Blackwell isn’t just a community struggling to escape a history of racial violence, but something equally destructive, otherworldly, and older than time immemorial. Something the residents speak of in hushed tones and with furtive glances. Tales of the town’s one-eyed “witch”, Nellie McGruder, bubble at the pit of the town’s consciousness, and rumors of the dark power wielded by the reclusive woman run rampant.

Now, tasked with reaching out to Nellie McGruder, Mia and her mother are forced to look deeply into the soul of Blackwell, and what they find will utterly terrify them.”
