From the beginning, I was invested in the storyline and the characters drew me into the vivid details of their lives. The further I was drawn into the book, I found elements horrific and others magical; only making me thirst for more. As soon as I finished it I recommended it to my friends and my husband began reading it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There’s more to this book than meets the eye. Everyone has their own monster to deal with, and once the mountain’s Frankenstein is let loose, the various characters in Devil’s Oven have to come face to face with them.Was this review helpful?

This book is rich on complex characters, and then ones you root for in the beginning aren’t the ones you’ll be rooting for in the end. The one constant in the story was Jolene, sent back from an earlier time to fix mistakes that she seems doomed to make over and over again. The story takes places against the backdrop of a small town strip club and the people who each have their own bizarre connection to it.
It next to impossible to sum up Devil’s Oven in a write-up, one MUST simply read it. It’s a wonderful noir mystery that asks as many questions as it answers, but that’s the beauty of Benedict’s writing. The reader is often left the come to their own conclusions about some of the more mysterious elements in the story. Sometimes, our own conclusions are scarier (or even sweeter) than the writer could ever imagine and that fits Devil’s Oven.
