Publisher's Description

Evelyn Barrett wants to die. As long as her daughter's murderer dies with her, she is ready to go. Why did this man--this stranger--destroy her family? Why has he not been brought to justice? Why is she forced to live a life of anger and grief? Amid a million questions she cannot answer, Evelyn knows one thing for sure: this murderer must be punished for his crime. Perhaps the harder lesson is this: the ultimate truth--of crime and verdict, of life and death--cannot be swayed by a mother's revenge. In this first book of a new, page-turning series, a woman will be brought to her limits before she finally recognizes the movement of the Holy Spirit and reconnects with the source of true peace.

Endorsements

"Wonderful analogies and language flourish in James’ start to her Lure of the Serpent series. Despite seeking vigilante justice, Evelyn has a vulnerability to her that is charming. Without a strong connection to God, hate and evil can overtake us. This is evident in the vicious cycle that perpetuates abuse spanning generations." - RT Book Reviews
"Crafted with the poetic precision of a master, Unholy Hunger will keep readers turning pages into the wee hours of the night. Not only has Heather James delivered a deeply emotional story, she has included tons of plot twists and well-researched details that will ring true for those who have endured the tragic loss of a loved one. No doubt, a legion of new fans will be eager to read more from this stellar debut author." ~Julie Cantrell--New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author of Into the Free
I’m not sure how Heather James blends such a chilling story with humor, heart-felt moments and even redemption, but she does it. What a ride! ~ Cindy Martinusen Coloma, bestselling author of twelve novels including Orchid House and Winter Passing.

    Mother's worst nightmare happens. The husband is a big lug who does almost nothing but try to get on with his life. The mother develops an ability, a special gift to find evil. Intriguing, tightly wound writing, but at times the realities with the gift just didn't seem believable enough. I would recommend it and it is a worthy read.

    Heather James in her new book, "Unholy Hunger" Book One in the Lure of the Serpent series published by Kregel Publications brings us into the life of Evelyn Barrett.

    From the back cover: Evelyn Barrett wants to die.

    Once a successful attorney, Evelyn is now taking a case that is far more personal: finding-and punishing-the man who killed her daughter. It's not the pleas of those around her or even the supernatural tingles that guide her next step. Following what she believes is the stench of evil, Evelyn searches for answers_and her own version of justice. Can the ultimate truth-of crime and retribution, of life and death-ever be swayed by a mother's revenge?

    I think there can be no great pain to a parent then to be told your child is dead. To find out the child was molested and murdered can only compound the grief. It must be heartbreaking for a parent to have to bury their child. I just cannot imagine their suffering. Evelyn Barret knows this suffering as her daughter was kidnapped, sexually molested and murdered and the police cannot find the murderer. So, once she works through her pain, Evelyn sets off to find her daughter's killer. This book is a thriller that also deals with the issues of kidnapping, molestation, and the murder of children. It also deals with parental grief and marital relations. I think Heather James is an extremely talented writer who really knows how to tell a story that will grab you and keep you flipping pages until you find out who did it. "Unholy Hunger"is a very exciting book that will keep you engrossed in the characters as Ms. James puts them through their paces. This is a wonderful series and I am glad I discovered Heather James. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series

    An excellent novel! Such an emotional story, I was drawn in right away and though I hated to turn the page I couldn't stop. I had to keep reading. A parents worst nightmare...your child is abducted. Evelyn, the mother, experiences a break down of sorts and the pain and anger grabs hold and won't let go. She wants revenge. Her marriage starts to unravel, she doesn't like who she's becoming. As I read I found myself getting angry, how in the world could someone harm children? I could feel Evelyn's pain.

    The author is so talented, the characters are intense, the plot, as horrible as it is, was compelling. This is a very well written suspense novel. 5 out of 5 stars!

    I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    A chilling tale with a spiritual twist

    I am thrilled to write about this debut novel by Heather James. It is always a privilege to review debuting authors. So without further ado, here is my review.

    Written in the first person viewpoint, we meet Evelyn Barrett as she talks about the first Eve and a piece of fruit. From that point forward it becomes a wild roller-coaster ride for Evelyn, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

    Heather chose a difficult subject to write about, sexual abuse and murder of young innocent children. Her main character, Evelyn, is a woman who tries to deal with the murder of her only child. It is how she deals with it that will make the reader continue to read this extremely suspenseful novel.

    Will she accomplish what she sets out to do? Will revenge fulfill her emptiness?

    Heather James has crafted a novel that will have have you turning the pages until you reach the last. An incredible, chilling tale with a spiritual twist that will have you looking at things differently, Unholy Hunger, is a winner for me.

    I look forward to reading the next one in this powerful series.

    Kregel Publications provided me with a free review copy for the purpose of writing this review.
