Paris, 1858. Mercedes Fabron, pragmatic wife and childless mother, has her hands full running her husband’s fashion shop while ignoring the uninvited ghosts haunting her night and day. Only the ghost of her young daughter Danielle helps her face this strange double-life.

But out in the streets, people are dying. The newspapers speak of an unknown disease, the police speak of accidents. Yet when Mercedes finds a dead man in her stairwell, she has every reason to suspect a more sinister and unnatural culprit. One that would kill Danielle all over again. And this time, it would be for good…

The Devourer is a paranormal psychological horror novel that goes beyond the classic paranormal genre. If you love tormented ghosts with all-too-real teeth, this book is for you!  


“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
