A Travis Thrasher novel is always a surprise to me, because you never really know what kind of story youre going to get. In his previous novels he has tried his hand at suspense, romance, drama, and even adventure and Im always amazed at his storytelling ability. When I heard he was taking a stab (pun intended) at the horror genre I could not wait to see the result. Once again, Travis Thrasher has exceeded my expectations and found a way to awe me. Isolation is everything I wanted it to be: frightening, suspenseful, mysterious, and ultimately inspiring. While this story portrays strong spiritual truth throughout, Thrasher never holds back with the terror and fear that plagues the Miller family. Indeed, many of the more memorable scenes are exceedingly creepy and disturbing, making the overall message of hope and light that much more powerful. I dont know if Travis Thrasher intends to settle on one particular genre, but I think he has found his niche with Isolation. Not only will this book scare you (and I mean scare you), but it will also challenge your faith and remind you of the all encompassing power of the love of our Savior. This guy only gets better with each new offering and this latest tale might just be his best yet.
