After his childhood sweetheart is brutally killed and suspicion falls on him, Ig Parrish goes on a drinking binge and wakes up with horns on his head, hate in his heart, and an incredible new power which he uses in the name of vengeance.
Joe Hill (aka Joseph Hillstrom King) follows up his critically acclaimed debut fantasy thriller HEARTSHAPED BOX with another guttural blow. HORNS describes the most hellish hangover of all time--Ignatius Parrish wakes up after a night of drunken debauchery to find two horns growing from his skull. Once the fog clears from his brain, Ig realizes that, along with the ugly pointy pair, he now was some very bizarre and very potent powers. He wastes no time putting his powers to use: Ig has been mourning the violent death of his girlfriend Merrin for about a year, living under the suspicious eyes of his small New Hampshire town. But how, Ig has the ability to find whoever it was that ruined his life--and to get the revenge he has long wanted.
