1.The Ritual : This novel is one of the most brilliant creations by Adam Nevill. The book was published in the year 2012 and eventually got an overall impressive review from numerous of his fans, followers, and other book critics. In fact, this novel also won several awards too.
The novel basically features a mind-twisting journey into the world of terror which is deeply disturbing & absolutely riveting. In fact, it’s a tale of a man’s ultimate survival story presented with a truly horrific realm.
Here, in the middle of a deep and dark Swedish forest, four lads are waiting to reunite and renew their earlier friendship through a little outdoor adventure. Now, they are on a mission of exploring an incredibly adventurous journey and they want to enjoy it to the fullest. While they have just started their journey, however, they will face a series of various peculiar incidents pretty soon. For example, initially, they come across a pretty strange site where someone (probably a hunter) has hung a dead animal body in the branches of a big tree. Is it some sort of warning? However, the four friends ignore this incident and proceed further.
Now, after a major storm, when the four buddies are all soaked and completely drained, they run into an old locked cabin which offers them an immediate shelter from the storm. But, here’s a twist; this cabin is a bit weird where the walls are filled with animal skulls & crosses. Now, inside it, they will find the macabre remains of old rites & pagan sacrifices; unidentifiable bones and ancient artifacts. In fact, this is a place of dark ritual & the home to a bestial presence which is still present in this ancient forest, and now they are the prey. Soon, the friends will disappear one by one! And, the story continues with an extremely well-developed sense of trepidation and fear.
The author cleverly combines the intense analysis of friendships with his unique descriptive writing style.

Overall, the novel is creepy, scary, interesting, and shocking at times & it surely engages the readers until the end!
