Publisher's Description

His Loneliness Will Soon Turn to Fear….
 
When Chris Buckley moves to Solitary, North Carolina, he faces the reality of his parents’ divorce, a school full of nameless faces—and Jocelyn Evans. Jocelyn is beautiful and mysterious enough to leave Chris speechless. But the more Jocelyn resists him, the more the two are drawn together.
 
Chris soon learns that Jocelyn has secrets as deep as the town itself. Secrets more terrifying than the bullies he faces in the locker room or his mother’s unexplained nightmares. He slowly begins to understand the horrific answers. The question is whether he can save Jocelyn in time.
 
This first book in the Solitary Tales series will take you from the cold halls of high school to the dark rooms of an abandoned cabin—and remind you what it means to believe in what you cannot see.

    My Review:

    Thrasher, as always, creates a story that you cannot help but fall in love with. He creates a world set apart, a word that cannot be escaped, and a world that will always be a part of you. I can't even begin to describe the feelings that arose from reading this novel; of mystery, madness, evil, darkness, derangement, and a fear that clutches at you just by continuing to read.

    Thrasher always puts out good material. No fluff or minced words, but solid characters, settings that are believable, and a final chapter that will leave you disturbed. I'm not certain that being disturbed is a good way to end a novel, but to Thrasher's credit, he is consistent with all of his work. I can't say I've ever walked away from one of his stories with a clear head mind and clean conscience. He makes me doubt that I am living a Godly life, and convicts me to greater heights.

    Thrasher forces me to think, to re-evaluate all that I know and believe. He examines the human condition at it's very heart, and he is a relentless hunter that always finds his mark. I would highly recommend this novel to young people of all ages, as it has a powerful message that will speak to readers everywhere.

    I almost didn't read this book as I have chosen to stop reading this genre altogether. At one time, I really felt these were interesting and very effective as I absolutely do believe in spiritual warfare. In fact, I have the entire collection of the leader in this field. However, I am finding it harder and harder to get past all the terror that dominates these novels to the truth of Christ who is the Light of the world.

    The main character in Solitary is believable and evokes much empathy in his role as an outsider in a new school. However, the evil is so heavy and so encompassing that one is weighed down by the darkness and oppression.

    In my opinion as the grandmother of a 13-year-old, this is not what I want her to read at this age (I note that the website lists this for 12-adult, very surprising to me as I read the book!); the horrific ending would, I am sure, traumatize her as it even shocked me. Although created, I am sure, from a gifted mind, I find this book depressing and frightfully sad-- not feelings I desire to have about fighting the evil in this world.

    When Chris Buckley's parents split, he sides with his mother, and they move to Solitary to live in his uncle's cabin. In the cabin, it appears that Chris's uncle walked out of his life without taking any of his possessions. At school, as the new kid, Chris attracts attention of girls and the resident bully, while strange things go on all over town. When he meets Jocelyn he looses his heart, but she suggests that things are not what they seem.

    This book is written from the point of view of a teen-aged boy, making it seem as if the reader falls into his life and thoughts. Chris is full of anger at his mother for her constant drinking and his father for his method of pushing his faith. Chris is definitely not someone who follows others easily. The gloom of the town hangs over the whole book, as Chris tries to find answers and save the girl. Interesting read, but definitely the first step in a series. There is no resolution of what Chris believes. This would be good choice for those who enjoyed Twilight, as the feeling is similar, but with a Christian bent.

    This book was terrible. Maybe for a 6th grader, but not for anyone older than that. I love fiction, all types, but I couldn't even finish this book. I hate books written in first person. Writing is so childish.
