Evil Eye: A Slasher Story by bestselling author April A. Taylor is a suspenseful horror story for classic horror fans everywhere. Taylor knows how to write eviscerating horror, the kind you may have grown up with and miss. This one isn't for the faint of heart, so this serves as fair warning. The action starts on page one and builds incredibly well from there. Six people are stuck on an island during a hurricane, and one of them yearns to kill the rest. What could go wrong? What would you do in this situation? Ask characters Annette, Chad, Heather, Spencer, and Kate.

This author delivers a good story, a plot that involves you all the way through and has you literally flipping the pages to find out what comes next for the characters, who don't really know each other at first but have to band together if they want to live. There are some graphic scenes, but this is what you expect in horror novels. What you don't expect are the scenes that humanize the characters and make you feel for them. The character development is obvious and intentional, and you don't get that in a lot of horror. Tension mounts with each passage, description, and dialogue exchange. Taylor confidently and expertly wraps a horror story within a survival story--perfect if you like both. If you're looking for horror that won't hold back, do yourself a favor and check out Evil Eye: A Slasher Story by April A. Taylor. It will become one of your horror favorites, and Taylor will quickly become one of your go-to horror writers.
