Originally I am from New Jersey – Central NJ to be exact and yes there is such a place even if North NJ and South NJ are always trying to claim us! When this book crossed my desk, I was interested. The tales of the Jersey Devil were vast during my teens and any trip near the Pine Barrens included the lore. You did not want to be stuck on a section of Pine Barrens road in the dark!
Author DiGerolamo presents a fun and light-hearted look at cousins trying to deal with the devil spawn. A great popcorn book – meaning you enjoy it while reading but it’s not quite a meal. This is the first book and a novella so my hope is that as the story develops, the reader gets enough about the characters to be able to make a connection and really get involved in the story. Meanwhile it was pleasurable entertainment!
From the creator of the Jersey Devil comic book comes a story about four cousins cursed by their ancestors, brought together by destiny and trying to keep South Jersey from going to Hell.
In 1732, Mother Leeds gave birth to the infamous Jersey Devil, which has roamed the Pine Barrens ever since.
Or so the story goes…
The truth is, Mother Leeds was a witch and opened the portals to Hell unleashing hundreds of devils into woods. But the villagers next door in Abe’s Hat noticed and formed a secret hunting society to track down the fiends and send them back to the Abyss. Their descendants continue the Hunt in secret to this day.
So grab your pork roll, put on your Piney Power hat and join the hunt, because the Galloway cousins are coming to save you whether you like it or not.
