The Entity of Camp Devils Lake by Anthony Robert Lee Jr. Gurule is a book for horror fans, an engrossing read that will keep you awake through the night without noticing the sweat dripping from your forehead. In 2008, a group of high school students sets out on a two-week excursion to Camp Devils Lake, but what started as an exciting event quickly turns into horror, a suspenseful story with a labyrinthine plot, exploring the proverbial struggle between good and evil. When a little boy gets killed, Rodger starts an investigation, and quickly finds out that it isn’t about human beings, because the group is faced with an entity that could be out to feed on their souls. Readers will follow Rodger and a compelling cast of both mortal and supernatural characters as they become embroiled in a fight for survival, for revenge, and freedom. Can these mortals find the tools to defeat an evil as powerful as this one? It is for the reader to find out.

Anthony Robert Lee Jr. Gurule has written a story that will grip fans of horror by the heart. It is suspenseful and contains powerful elements of mystery as well. The setting is well-developed, plunging readers into a world where anything can go wrong at any moment, and a lot of things do go wrong. The characters are real and the author has a gift for making readers believe his story, making them feel as though they were part of the plot. The story is action-packed, emotionally intense, and featuring a dramatic conflict. The Entity of Camp Devils Lake is a well-crafted horror story that leaves you with goose bumps even after you have turned over the last page. The characters will haunt you.


This book is awesome! The character of the little baby is crazy cool and the image of a baby with sharp teeth and black eyes looking at a grown man saying look at my teeth look at my teeth is amazing! The child in the book appears several times and is unique and different from other characters. If this were going to be a movie. I would watch it because it is different and new! The concept and the action sequences in the book are mind boggling. Anthony your book rocks!


This is a really good book! It's really scary, my favorite character is The baby that bears no mark because he is really scary. The action is cool and the story is strong. The plot is intense and the characters fit the parts well. Buy this book it is awesome!!!!! It would make a great movie as well!!!!!

Horror gore man

I think this book is really good in the terms of all the action and suspense as the main character Roger is pulled into a whirlwind of terror, shock, emotional ties to his family and the evil plot the entity has in store for Rodger. The book is an all out good vs evil book with twists and turns at every angle. How would you feel if the powers of the unknown were lurking in every aspect of your life. The author turns Murphy's law into "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong". In this book it does and their is a twisted sense of humor with the main character as he becomes fed up with the main characters in the book.


The book is horrible in the fact that it is so good. I could not put it down as the story started to unfold in the end. The sequences of repetition helps the reader stay focused and works to the readers ability. It is almost as if the author wrote the book for an ADHD person to stay focused on the action, suspense, love, resentment, political, and overall a really good story about faith, religion, biases and the person gets to distinguish their own biases towards the whole subject of religion. I thought the book was better than good! The characters will haunt you, but leave you with a sense of wow!!

The book is really well written. It has a sense of mystery and suspense. The internal battles of Rodger and the evil characters as their stories are unfolded. The evil done unto another, and the consequences of the evil were extreme it turned these lost children into the monsters they are in the book. The cruelness of the world is extreme and the way the author portrays their stories is good. Well done! Hands down five stars and it is well deserved.

Boom boom pow

Wow! Wow! Wow! Have never read a book as sick as this one. The author man has a twisted sense of gore. The characters all signify the meaning of terror. The characters were in my dreams! Do not read this book at night! You will stay up thinking and noticing every little bump in the night. Scared but great for horror fans! Awesome job man!


The description and imagery throughout several passages were captivating, the picture of gore and chaos that the author paints left a lasting image in the readers mind even after the book was put down. The outward story was really a great read, but getting to search for and discern through the underlying themes the main character deals with through out his experience was an added bonus that allowed me to honestly say that this book will remain a part of my collection for a long time to come.
