Henry D'Amour has been chasing demons for as long
as he can remember. His detective work has brought him
into numerous clashes with pure evil. The Hell Priest,
known to most as Pinhead, has been accumulating magic
powers and knowledge in secret. The only oppositions to
his power are his monastic order and Lucifer himself.
When D'Amour and the Hell Priest collide, there is no
stopping the incredible clash of wills. And when the
Devil gets his due, everyone's soul hangs in the balance.
When I finished THE SCARLET GOSPELS I was in
complete shock. I have read the work of Clive Barker
before. He remains one of my favorite writers to this
day. Never have I seen something like this. This book is
both fascinating and horrifying. The conclusion to the
Hellraiser series is more powerful and life-changing than
you can possibly imagine. There is little I can say in
the way of storyline, because it sprawls and eases along
like the giant road to Hell itself. It's a beautiful
journey, with some of the darkest and most striking prose
I've seen in a long time. There were things that made me
cry, and things that made me cry harder.
THE SCARLET GOSPELS is not a book for the faint
of faith. This book takes known Christian themes and
tropes and turns them right on their heads. It doesn't
encourage you to question your beliefs, but that didn't
stop me. I was thinking hard every time I finished a
chapter. It took me longer to read this book than
anything I've read in years. I had to keep stopping and
taking breaks because otherwise I would not have been
okay. This book really affects the reader and it hurts.
Reading THE SCARLET GOSPELS is an experience in itself.

The Scarlet Gospels takes readers back many years to
the early days of two of Barker's most iconic characters in
a battle of good and evil as old as time: The
long-beleaguered detective Harry D'Amour, investigator of
all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off
against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead,
the priest of hell. Barker devotees have been waiting
for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years,
and it’s everything they've begged for and more. Bloody,
terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers
alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale
that is The Scarlet Gospels. Barker's horror will
make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The
Gospels are coming. Are you ready?
