Nightmare - eBook
Definitely not for youth or new believers
This is a first time to write a review, so please forgive me if it isn't done right. This was also a new author to me. It was more than just "cutting-edge", it was very creepy, and definitely not for a young person or new believer to read. It made me extremely interested in the paranormal, opened doors that should not have been opened in my mind and thinking. Maybe this is what the author meant to accomplish, and if that was the goal, he succeeded.

This book went beyond creepy, it actually sent chills down my arms and spine several times. I'm not sure if this was a good thing or not. One the one hand I think it was, because it tells me that the writing was great, but on the other hand it wasn't because of the content of ghosts and demons. I liked the characters and the reason why they were doing what they were doing, I thought the ending could have been done better, but that's just my personal opinion. It's a very quick read, lots of conversation that makes it go fast.

Maia Peters knows more than she really cares to know about the paranormal, as the child of a famous husband and wife ghost hunting team, she has seen the paranormal up close and personal. And she personally wants nothing to do with it. She wants to make her own way in criminal justice, and forensic science and is paying her way through college to study those subjects.
A trip to an amusement park that is supposed to boast of paranormal activities, brings Maia the biggest surprise she has had in a long time. She sees the spirit of a girl who she had helped observe and study the paranormal investigative techniques. Maia does not know what is going on, but combining both her paranormal experience and her college studies experience she is determined to find out.
Delving deep into something that turns out to be much darker and more sinister that she imagined, Maia knows she has to rescue her friend, and to do it fast.
A fast paced moving book, you will not want to put this book down. A Christian publisher with a story about the paranormal is not the norm in Christian fiction and the author is very assertive in pointing out that this book does not promote the paranormal. Nor do I promote the paranormal, I do believe, as the book pointed out, that ghosts are mentioned in the Bible, and while everything connected with paranormal activity, is not a demon it is influenced by demonic powers and activity. That all being said I enjoyed the story, it was a great story, wonderfully written and it was awesome to see the strong Christian in the story take a stand against the demonic forces at work. A book worth reading! 347 pages $14.99 US 5 stars

I have to be perfectly honest and tell you that if I would have encountered this book on a shelf at the bookstore or library, I likely would have judged the book by its cover and walked on by. Generally, I am not interested in paranormal books and I REALLY dont enjoy being spooked or freaked out so if I had gone with my first instinct, it would have been MY LOSS!!!If youre a roller coaster enthusiast, then youll understand what Im saying when I compare this book to strapping yourself in on the biggest roller coaster youve ever ridden. Imagine the frightening anticipation that comes with each clink as you slowly make your way up the long, ominous hill.Suddenly, you are falling and flying all at the same time and as much as you might want to get off of the terrorizing ride, at the same time you want to stay on. Does that make sense?I could not put this book down. I think at one point, the pages may have been smoking from me trying to read so fast!! LOL If you like suspense and Im talking nail-biting, hair-raising, on the edge of your seat hard-core suspense..this book is for you!See my full review at Cafe Lily Book Reviews.
