Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples.

Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.
Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty.
Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due.

HORNS: It's moving, sad, often funny, redemptive, and filled with hope.

Review:

I've read it a few times over the years and each time I come out of the experience having a completely new interpretation. Out of everything he's written, from his numerous short stories to his novels to his comics, it's Horns I always circle back to. (Tor.com)

Horns was a terrific read which helps to bolster Joe Hill's already high status in my personal pantheon of storytellers/writers. (SFF World)

After you've watched the movie, I'd whole heartedly recommend checking out the novel, its well worth the read. (Pissed off Geek)

An instant classic, Horns commands the reader's attention from the first page to the last and serves as an excellent starting point for Joe Hill virgins. I, for one, can't wait to see the film adaptation, despite the fact that the Ig in my head bears no resemblance to Daniel Radcliffe. This is a must-read, if you haven't already, and well worth a revisit if you have. (Reader Dad)

On the whole, I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone. It is wretched, witty, and enthralling. The writing is clever and masterful, despite the few faults I had. I think that if you are of a sensitive or conservative disposition, it might not be the book for you. It is a tragic love story, a murder mystery, and a supernatural fantasy with a dash of theological satire to sweeten the deal. (The Eloquent Page)

Joe Hill digs beneath the surface of civility to expose the brutal and savage sides of human nature. The result is an excellent read, full of dark wit and disturbing revelations. (WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY)

Horns is pretty damn awesome. I have read my fair share of supernatural trhillers over the years but with Horns Joe Hill introduces something not seen before, it's not a complete embodient of the devil but holds in the lines. A perfect story that will creep you out and play with your emotions. And at the heart of it all yes a love story, gone wrong. (The Book Plank)

A dark, funny 21st century fairytale - and a devilishly good one too. (Ian Berriman SFX)

A tale of sexual jealousy, the redemptive power of love and the loss of adolescent innocent, congealed into a parable about the soul's need demands for revenge. An original take on the half-glimpsed mystery of the human heart. (Neil Norman THE DAILY EXPRESS)

On the level of a horror thriller, Horns is a compelling read. What makes it exceptional is Hill's psychological insight as he dramatises Ig's plight, Tourenau's egotism and Merrin's heartbreaking dilemma. As an examination of the forces of good and evil, and all the shades in between, Horns is a remarkable achievement. (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN)

Book Description:
