A baby is born to a poor village girl who has no means of raising the child. Out of pity, the elders of the family take the new born to the woods to let nature take its course. They misjudge the grief this causes and return to find the baby gone assuming the wolves had got there first. Breaking the news to the mother, she collapses with a broken heart. They took her child before she could even give the newborn a name. Weeks pass, and in an act of vengeance she curses the village and their descendents, and, feeling she can do no more, she dies of a broken heart and soul. But the dark powers that own the woods came across the crying newborn and take the child to their master. The child is raised amongst demons and the devil takes the newborn as his own. "One day you will return to do your mothers bidding, and seek your revenge. You have the armies of hell at your side, you can do whatever you like, the village and its people must pay for the way they treated you, and mercy is a sign of weakness." Generations pass and the legend is forgotten by some ignored by others, but the newborn has now grown and is ready to do what mother asked. As the revenge begins and escalates mother talks to her child through the body of one person and at last manages to name her baby. As the creature from hell walks the earth to punish and kill those who threw away a newborn like waste, a mother's love shines through. Deformed and hideous to look at, the only friends the creature has are its birth mother and the devil's army.

I had a few issues with this book. The basic premise is sound and the idea sort of works, but, sorry Nigel, I was not overly impressed with the way it was written. There are to my mind a few contextual errors, which I found annoying, bits of important info are rushed over and the use of descriptive language I found repetitive. The attempt at charatirisation don't really work and the speech between characters and their interaction doesn't feel real.Not terrible, but not too good.
