Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
For over a century, the wealthy and powerful Bogan family ruled Mungo County, South Carolina with an iron hand. They were doctors, lawyers, politicians, landowners, socialites, industrialists and businessmen. They werealso killers, bullies, rapists, sweatshop mill operators, bootleggers and gangsters, poisoners and devil-worshippers. Cross a Bogan and your fields, your barn or your house went up in smoke one night. Fight back and you got a bullet. The law was not merely helpless, the Bogans owned the law. Finally in 1946, the Bloody Bogan line came to an end in a final paroxysm of murder and suicide. Or so the people of Mungo County thought. Amy Anderson is a gentle and devoutly religious young woman, who suddenly learns that she has inherited a vast fortune and a large mansion in Mungo County. But with this sudden wealth comes the curse of the Bloody Bogans, not just a legacy of cruelty and violence and murder, but of satanic occult terror as well. A hundred and fifty years ago, in a shunned and eerie stand of Carolina pines, old Josh Bogan made a bargain with Something and founded the family's fortune.Now Amy Anderson has inherited that bargain and payment is due. Amy and her new husband must fight for their lives, their sanity, and their immortal souls in a house wherein lurks an evil that was old when time itself began.

Old dog does new tricks.
le 30 juillet 2013 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Young lady inherits an old house with an unsavory reputation. Nothing new here, or so one would think. Harold Covington takes a horror cliché and transforms it into something new, doing in 200 pages what Stephen King does in 600. Sex, death, redemption, ghosts and a demonic power drive the narrative, aided and abetted by an intriguing religious plot device that is all the more remarkable coming from a frankly irreligious author. You won't forget either Amy or the Bogan clan any time soon. Definitely not one to read alone in the dark.

quirky and cool
le 8 février 2002 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This oddity provides constant surprises. Beginning with a very standard and cliched plot - the heroine must return to claim her accursed homestead - it is full of enough biblical and fundamental Christian perspective to make me wonder whether it was from a religious publisher. Yet it manages to be pretty creepy, and the ending is a real surprise, in my opinion, given the initial tenor of the tale. Decently written, kept me turning pages through it's simple plot with scary episodes. A step above ordinary cheesy horror.

A Really Scary Book
le 15 mars 2001 - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Revelation 9" is a really scary book. As a supernatural novel it has overtones of Pet Sematary but much more Southern Gothic in style. In my opinion this is as good as anything Stephen King or Dean Koontz ever wrote, but it's nowhere near as long and digressive and boring as K & K's books have become. That's what happens when the big publishing companies pay their authors by the pound of manuscript they produce. "Revelation 9" is short, the story flows well, the characters are interesting and well drawn, The horror element may be a bit too heavy for some but it's made up for by the flow of the story. This seems to be the only ghost story Mr. Covington has written, judging by his list he's more interested in thrillers and historicals, but I hope he writes more in the supernatural genre.

Revelation 9 Freaked Me Out
le 25 février 2002 - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am amazed at how versatile a writer H. A. Covington is! The first book of his I read, given to me by a friend, was his beautiful love story "The Stars In Their Path", and then I read "Revelation 9" and find it's a totally freaky and chilling ghost story in the best Stephen King tradition! I am going to order the rest of Mr. Covington's books as well as copies of this one and "The Stars". I can see why they call him an "underground cult novelist"; I am well on the way to becoming a disciple myself.

A Real Goose Bumper
le 15 avril 2001 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Don't read this one in the dark, especially you gals. I tried reading it in bed and I ended up listening in apprehension for any strange creaks or footsteps in the house. Mr. Covington is as good as Stephen King or Dean Koontz or John Saul. He can really put supernatural fear on the printed page.
