Publisher's Summary

Ruby is the most violently disturbed patient ever admitted to Drummersgate Asylum, high on the bleak moors of northern England. With no improvement after two years, Dr. Jack McGowan finally decides to take a risk and hypnotizes her - with terrifying consequences.
A horrific dark force is now unleashed on the entire medical team, as each in turn attempts to unlock Ruby's shocking and sinister past. Who is this girl? And how did she manage to survive such unimaginable evil? Set in a desolate ex-mining village, where secrets are tightly kept and intruders hounded out, their questions soon lead to a haunted mill, the heart of darkness, and the father of lies.

EXORCIST MEETS CYBIL

absolutely loved this story. scary as hell. had a very hard time sleeping after reading it. I'm a Texan and the English accent took a little while to get used to, but I found it made the story more evil and creepy. highly recommend. ready for book 2.

A merely 'ok' read

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I will start by saying that the authors style of writing was fantastic. I enjoyed the mental pictures she painted throughout the story. Having said that, I did not thoroughly enjoy the book. I am a HUGE horror book fan, and I did not find this story terrifying in the slightest. I felt only slightly entertained at most. The ending was a little hurried and sort of confusing almost forcing you to read the second book, which unfortunately, I will not be doing.

What was most disappointing about S. E. England’s story?

The most disappointing thing about this story was the inability to satisfy my twisted need for horror. She constantly moved from one character to the next, and after a while it left you wondering if the poor girl (Ruby) had actually been the one going through all of this.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was amazing. I did not find her narrating too fast or anything, and, I found her accent amazing. Her demon voice was definitely spooky haha

Was Father of Lies worth the listening time?

Overall, I don't think this is worth the listen. This book is mediocre at best.

This is my idea of scary!

I adore the kind of horrors that I can believe are possible. This was one such tale and I'm keenly awaiting the release of the second in the series; so much so, I've pre-ordered it. Not something I do often.

Avoid

Couldn't listen to this as the narrators accents are truly abysmal. Turned it off after a few mins. Can I have my money back please?

Wow!!

Simply amazing and the build up was perfect. It took a while though to get used to the author's writing style. It was a bit hard to follow in the start, switching back and forth between present, a year ago, two years ago, many many years ago. But it was all worth it.
