This is a YA book that sounded intriguing I really liked Anna Dressed in Blood so figured I d read another YA book instead of moving on to something deeper This story is about Bryan who feels so guilty over what happened to his brother, Adam, that he can t move on with his life His parents are lost in their own misery so are no longer interested in life or the son that lived through the terror that day.Bryan meets up with a couple of other boys who have also seen the Dark Man and together they t [...]

It s just a game, isn t it Like one of those skipping rhymes, chants for little kids A rhyme that predicts how you ll die But anyway It s just a rhyme But not for Bryan His brother went missing, when playing this game, and Bryan saw the Dark Man who took Adam away Then Bryan finds two boys who lost someone, apparently to The Dark Man Somehow the children of the town are going missing and the Devil s Footsteps chant is somehow tying it all together.An original idea Creepy chants aren t common in [...]
Bryan was only ten years old when older brother Adam dissapeared The police questioned him for hours afterward, trying to get him to give details on the Dark Man who he said had taken Adam, but Bryan knew even then that the Dark Man was far than a single human man he was the embodiment of all nightmares, and he had stolen away his brother.Now, five years later, Bryan has been reliving the moment when Adam was stolen away in his dreams He is friendless and alone, with parents who have drifted a [...]
My first impression of this book was that it was surprisingly and conveniently easy to get into I was hooked from the start That s a huge plus for me It s exceedingly easy to become lost in the portrayed world, and take you from reality Also a huge plus for me I appreciated how strongly the boys felt against the Dark Man and their town How passionately they wanted people to stop turning a blind eye to the fact that children are disappearing, and their bravery for doing something about it.The Dev [...]
I have been wanting to read this book for who knows how many years, and I finally did I was not disappointed This is a horror story but it is not gory, or slashery It is the kind of horror that creeps up on you, like flicking off a light at one end of the hallway and feeling the need to run when you are halfway to the other side, like the moment you consciously realize that you are home alone in a house that is almost always full of people there is a sense of wrongness You don t notice how scare [...]
Darkness Wolves The Forest Buried secrets Death Impalement on a meat hook Abandoned houses Isolation Seeing loved ones tortured Being chased Threatening strangers Parental abandonment Limbs bursting from the earth to drag you under Clowns Okay, the clown only gets a passing mention, and there were no snakes or spiders But this book still felt a bit like a laundry list of fears, most touched on too briefly to really instill any terror in the reader And the denouement with the steps was pretty pre [...]
This book definitely captured my attention It was a very quick read with a fairly good adrenaline rush Kind of scary, kind of not, I thought the storyline was very good, and I was pleased with the ending.
Mi era venuta una fissa cos allucinante con questo libro che, per mesi, sono andata in giro canticchiando la poesia su cui si fonda tutta la trama E credendoci anche S , macabro, lo so.
Book was a quick read I really enjoyed it A good book to read around Halloween It was like reading a scary movie.
Was good, not great The story automatically took off on first page, no build up Think of the movie IT because it s basically like thatbut something else sinister than Penny Wise the clown
This book was great, one of my favourite books I ve ever read
i really loved the poem But over all it was a good book, i liked it
1 I chose this book for a few reasons, one being that I enjoy scary books Another reason is that I needed one IR book, and this book and its cover stood out to me in the library.2 This book is about a boy named Bryan, who loses his brother at a young age His brother s name was Adam, and he suddenly disappeared with the evil Dark Man one day while they were playing in the forest Five years after Adam s disappearance, Bryan meets up with two other boys who have lost people to the Dark Man, and th [...]
C un pedofilo che rapisce e uccide piccole vittime innocenti ma gli adulti del paese, coloro che dovrebbero vegliare sui bambini, fingono di non vedere Chiudono gli occhi e si voltano dall altra parte, lasciando che l Uomo Nero porti le sue prede nel bosco.Bryan, il protagonista, decide di mettere fine a tutto questo e inizia con gli amici un avventura che cambier per sempre le loro vite.Questo libro non un libro per bambini, un romanzo che d i brividi, fa riflettere e mette a nudo la fanciullez [...]
Una lettura veloce in cui si ha per l impressione che l autore sia rimasto troppo in superficie Il lettore viene catapultato fin da subito dentro il contesto spaventoso di Redford, ma per spaventare davvero ci vuole lentezza il senso di inquietudine deve svilupparsi pagina dopo pagina, dettaglio dopo dettaglio In compenso il finale mi piaciuto.
This books is Stephen King s IT basically completely copied but for children.
Bryan was 10 when his brother, Adam, just disappeared That was five years ago, and now Bryan is the only one who seems to remember what happened Until he meets two others with their own unsolved mysteries It seems that Adam isn t the first to disappear Someone or something is after the kids in their neighborhood The adults can t hear it, and they can t see it or feel it but the kids can And it all comes back to the skipping rhyme that every child in town knows by heart and the Dark Man who hau [...]
I liked this book because it was never boring, it was always full of activity.

PaperBackSwap is a wonderful website and it s where I was able to get this book I tend to pile the whole of my Want list onto that website just in case one may pop up It s a good place for horror and I have to say I was pleased with what I read in DEVIL S FOOTSTEPS.Bryan is having a really hard time with life seeing how he still hasn t coped with his older brother s disappearance five years previous His parents aren t helping since they re locked in their own world of melancholia and pay him lit [...]
