The murder was ugly. The killer was sure no one saw him. Someone did. In a horrifying vision, Chelsea Adams has relived the victims last moments. But who will believe her? Certainly not the police, who must rely on hard evidence. Nor her husband, who barely tolerates Chelseas newfound Christian faith. Besides, hes about to hire the man who Chelsea is certain is the killer to be a vice president in his company. Torn between what she knows and the burden of proof, Chelsea must follow Gods leading and trust him for protection. Meanwhile, the murderer is at liberty. And hes not about to take Chelseas involvement lying down.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thought provoking suspenseNovember 20, 2015bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I frequently see the headlines where a Christian has received a vision of what God is doing in the end days. We've heard of those Holy Spirit promptings to pray for someone or perhaps contact them. But what would you do if God gave you a vision of a murder?
Since Chelsea had become a Christian, God had been giving her visions. Her husband, not a Christian, had tolerated them but found them troubling. Then she had a vision that changed their lives.
Chelsea had gone out to dinner with her husband and a potential new hire for her husband's firm. She had a vision unlike any other during that dinner. She experienced the very terrors of a young woman being murdered. She vaguely sees the murderer, but not clearly enough to identify the man. When she returns from her trance-like state, the potential employee is staring at her. Chelsea sees the evil in his eyes.
She goes to the police but they are not very responsive. She identifies the area of the murder from her vision and decides to investigate it on her own. She does find the body. That is a terrifying experience for her but the terror has just begun.
This is a good thriller with lots of issues to think about. If we receive some insight from God, what is our responsibility? What if we get it wrong? Would God let us misinterpret a vision, even when it means harm to others? How do we relate a vision to unbelievers? If you're a Christian detective, as one character in the novel is, how do you react when you have a vision of a murder related to you? Just how much evidence should be required for a murder conviction?
The characters are well crafted. There is a good mixture of Christians and unbelievers and the tension between them is well presented, from marriage to police detectives. I highly recommend this novel to those who like thought provoking suspense.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through The Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Eyes of ElishaNovember 11, 2015Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Eyes of Elisha is the first installment of the Chelsea Adams Series. Right from page 1, I was hooked in the story. The book is full of mystery, suspense and action. I was kept guessing what would happen next and my attention was held until the end. I had this book read in no time, as I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read what happens in the next installment of the series.
Great book and I highly recommend it!
5 plus stars

Sharon A Lavy5 Stars Out Of 5March 18, 2008Sharon A LavyI met Brandilyn Collins at the 2007 ACFW Conference. (American Christian Fiction Writers) She was such a delightful lady I just had to buy one of her books. (Like I need an excuse to buy books.) I had to limit my purchases somehow so I chose books from authors I met at the conference.Before the conference I had checked out Brandilyn's blog, and read about the trauma she went through writing EYES OF ELISHA. So that's the book I bought. The cover looks rather spooky and while I love suspense and mystery, I don't do horror well. I put it on the back burner and read some of the other books first.Then one day I got brave and read this book. It's not horror after all. Sorry Brandilyn, now I know you have never been classified as a horror writer. To make a long story short, I'm now hooked on this dear ladies writing. No wonder her tag line is "Don't forget to breathe."If you like reading Iris Johanson's writing, you will love this book by Brandilyn Collins.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm fairly new to the Christian fiction market, Eyes of Elisha being my second CBA novel. (My first was Cast A Road Before Me, Book #1 in the Bradleyville Series - women's fiction. Published by Broadman & Holman.) I have now signed with Zondervan for four novels in a row -- Books #2 and #3 in the Bradleyville Series (#2 is titled Color the Sidewalk for Me), and two suspense novels, Eyes of Elisha and Dread Champion. Dread Champion features the same main character, Chelsea Adams, that you'll meet in Eyes of Elisha.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted to write a bang-up suspense with a strong message of God's power and His willingness to intervene in today's dangerous world.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? That God is all powerful and almighty. That, when it comes to this world, He is not a God who "lit it, then quit it," as one of the characters in Eyes of Elisha would say. That His perfect will must be played out through his imperfect servants, and as his vessels on earth, we need to keep our eyes on Him constantly -- especially when He moves in supernatural ways.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: As the reviewers/endorsers are saying, Eyes of Elisha is full of twists and turns. Hope you enjoy the ride!
