"A paranormal flair that is guaranteed to entice you from beginning to end!”

Mercedes Fabron, pragmatic wife and childless mother, has her hands full running her husband’s fashion shop while ignoring the uninvited ghosts that haunt her night and day. Only the spirit of her deceased daughter Danielle gives her comfort in her increasingly claustrophobic life.

In the darkness beyond life, something stirs. Out in the streets, mysterious deaths shock Paris. The newspapers speak of an unknown disease, the police speak of accidents. But when even the ghosts are scared to death, Mercedes suspects a far more sinister culprit.

One that could kill Danielle all over again. This time for good…

Behind the oppressive reality of abuse, depression and suicide, there is light on the edge of the darkness. The Devourer is a masterful psychological horror novel that goes beyond the classic paranormal genre.


“The psychological horror grabbed me and made me think about several issues: forgiveness, suicide, honor, guilt, love, hate, letting go, self-loathing and self-forgiveness.”

“The compelling plot captivated me from the very beginning, thanks to the well-written nature but also the incredible, fascinating characters the reader comes across. The characters are simply wonderful and very unique!”

On Amazon:

“It was a terrific read: thrilling, moving and rendering a view into the afterlife. I highly recommend it!”

“A marriage of broken dreams, a grieving mother, a murder and a glimpse into a world of which the citizens of Paris were mostly unaware. Nobody and nothing is as it seemed, and Chelser lead me to pity a monster and feel compassion for a beast.”

On Goodreads:

“The way Chelser describes the inhabtants of the spiritual world, the ghosts and other wandering souls, is different from anything I’ve read before.” – Karen
