Together, they plan on killing a man who abducted Emily and held her captive for four days; a man Emily calls The Monster.

As each day passes by and their encounter with the man who abducted Emily approaches, Evan begins to understand how easy it is to slip into the mind of a monster.
How easy it is to become that monster... Neophyte is a dark novel with scenes of both a violent and sexual nature.
Using themes of fantasy, obsession, mortality and the supernatural, Eli Wilde and 'Anna DeVine join forces to create a sinister, chilling read.
