What a great debut novel. This book had many great elements. The characters were believable with real problems and secrets. The writing was beautifully crafted and almost poetic. The metaphors placed you in the scene with brilliant imagery evoking all the senses. There were many chilling and heart rendering moments. From the first page I was hooked, sucked into a world of mystery, intrigue and an evil darkness. I absolutely loved this book with its many diverse characters who complemented one another with a story that twists and turns. It's hard to believe this is the first novel by Beverley Lee. I look forward to reading the next instalment. Congratulations Beverley on a beautifully written narrative.

The Making of Gabriel Davenport is the debut novel by British Author, Beverley Lee. If you like ghost, supernatural or fantasy stories, then this book is for you. I loved it.

It’s set in the English hillside town of Meadowford Bridge. The story opens with the first hints of evil skittering about the Davenport home. A fierce snowstorm descends on the village, causing isolation and tearing apart the lives of the Davenport family. At this stage, Gabriel is a baby.

The next time we see Gabriel he is a teenager. He lives with his mother, Beth, in a house for the supernaturally gifted. Beth’s sacrifice to protest her child during the snowstorm has left her a haunted woman.

Beverley Lee weaves a fast-paced, wonderfully written story that escalates with tension and impending terror.

As well as Gabriel and Beth, I loved the patriarchal figure of Carver and the protective Noah. Yet every character is strongly developed by Beverly Lee. We see this as Lee adds the layers of tension through the eyes of the inhabitants of the house.

I turned the last page hoping there was more, but I know I have the next book in Gabriel’s life to look forward to.

I recommend this book as a great read, with a strong narrative and characters you will love, and a lurking, primal evil that will leave you wanting to know what happens next.

‘The Making of Gabriel Davenport’ is the debut paranormal novel of British Author, Beverley Lee. Lee skilfully delivers a tense fast-paced ghost story with both humour and warmth.
This dark, supernatural story is perfect for lovers of fantasy, mystery, and ghost stories.
The story begins with a chilling snow storm where readers are introduced to the Davenport family. I was immediately drawn into the minutia of the Davenport’s lives and was completely taken with the characters of Beth and Stu Davenport. Gabriel was a perfectly adorable baby boy and I loved all the little details Lee included which only made the story more compelling and more real. Everyday life is suffused with the eerie and chilling ancient darkness of the skittering Aka Maga who is intent on destruction.
Lee skilfully weaves the story within a brooding atmosphere while unveiling a fascinating cast. I was taken with Carver and Noah and Clove, and of course, Gabriel Davenport. Lee’s ability to make the ordinary more than what is is, with her poetic prose is both admirable and courageous.
‘The Making of Gabriel Davenport’ has plenty of cliff hangers to keeps readers on the edges of their seats. The fine craftsmanship and poetic prose of Lee’s writing is to be commended. ‘The Making of Gabriel Davenport’ is highly recommended and I would love to see this on the big screen.

I love Dean Koontz books, so when I heard about Beverley Lee's The Making of Gabriel Davenport, I just had to read it! And I was not disappointed. Suspenseful, even scary at times, this debut novel is beautifully written. The characters, good and evil, each have traits we can relate to, therefore making them bizarrely likeable! Well done Beverley Lee! I cannot not wait to get my hands on Book 2 in this series.
