Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They reside in the darkest of places. They come in any number of horrifying shapes and sizes. They are spoken of only in whispers. They are the demons that terrorize our species--images of ultimate evil that exist in every society. Evil in Our Midst provides a chilling glimpse of fifty dark angels, each of which represents a culture's greatest fears. Every chapter opens with a story that shares the legend of a demon, and then provides fascinating information on the culture that, in many cases, perpetuates this belief. You'll learn about the Ligahoo, a Caribbean werewolf who lives off the blood of its prey; the Windigo, who wanders the frigid woods of North America, paralyzing victims with its death-haunted screams; and Mexico's La Llorona, the Weeping Woman who causes madness and death. Evil in Our Midst presents neither ancient mythology nor mere folklore. Rather, it is a portal into the reality of living in a world of demons. For those who believe in these creatures, it gives reason to fear the unknown in a world where brutal death may be waiting around the next bend. For those who do not believe in demons, this book provides terrifying reading for a stormy night.
