Publisher's Description

Bizarre Encounter Initiates Extreme Spiritual Battle

Dylan Foster’s carefully constructed, orderly world begins to fray, thread by thread, the day the eyes of hell turn upon her. After a chance encounter with a creepy, sickly looking stranger, her days become punctuated with disturbing, inexplicable events. Desperate for answers, Dylan seeks not only to extricate herself from the nightmare, but to separate the spiritual from the earthly, friend from foe, angel from devil, good from evil. She’s smack in the eye of the battle with only God-issued spiritual armor and her own wits to protect her.

I saw the first fly alight on the edge of my plate during supper. This was no ordinary fly. It was huge. The size of a small Volkswagen. I could have painted daisies on it and sold rides to small children.

Hotter than the eyes of hell...

School is back in session, but for psychology professor Dylan Foster, the promise of a new semester is dying in the heat of the late Texas summer. First, there is the bizarre encounter with a ghastly pale stranger. Then her mother’s engagement ring turns up—the same ring that was buried with her mother two years before.

Soon, Dylan’s carefully ordered world is unraveling, one thread at a time. A former patient accuses her of impropriety, putting her career in jeopardy. A suicide plunges her deeper into shadow. Relationships with colleagues start to crumble. And then there are those flies in her house...

Dylan Foster is about to get a crash course in spiritual warfare—and a glimpse of her own small but significant role in a vast eternal conflict. But when the dust settles, will anything be left of her life as she knows it?

Story Behind the Book

The reality of spiritual warfare has long fascinated Melanie Wells. A practicing private counselor, she is energized by pondering the significance of seemingly mundane events, the importance of individual faithfulness, and the connection between the spiritual realm and the empirical world. She emphasizes these themes in her book, where the first scene came to her in a dream.

    ...I fail to understand how this novel honors Christ. The writing is excellent (much better than the writing of most Christian authors) and the story draws you in. BUT...in a VERY DARK way. If you're fascinated with demons and want to read about them then this book is for you. But I don't see much of a difference between the way the subject is presented here than in secular novels. I'm not a big fan of spending time reading about all things demonic so this book isn't/wasn't for me. I hope the author decides to use her considerable writing talent focusing elsewhere; perhaps choosing to show more of Jesus reflected in peoples' lives than on the demonic.

    No doubt about it, Melanie Wells is one talented writer. Her plots are original and well-thought-out, her descriptions vivid and compelling. Character development, however is very much lacking, and the pace of the novel is rapid-fire banter between characters, with a pronounced lack of depth. Dylan Foster, the heroine, is sarcastic and self-absorbed. Written in the first person, almost every page contains musing on her free-spirited nature, and details on her faults, as if they make her unique and humorous. Every third page, it seems, details her obsessive-compulsive need to clean her house and alphabetize her pantry. I found it very hard to like Dylan Foster, and her flippant, irreverent references to God throughout the novel had me cringeing. She bemoans her lack of self-discipline in spiritual matters, explaining that she rarely prays, reads the Bible, or has quiet time, because she is not really a checklist kind of person. She doesn't know how to get rid of a demon who is plaguing her, and this turns into a strange, twisted humor throughout the novels.

    I kept hoping this novel would get better, kept hoping each novel in the series would get better, and stuck with the novels because of that, despite putting each book down feeling slightly depressed and empty. Having finished the last one, tonight, I'm left with a bitter taste in my mouth, wondering, how exactly are these novels Christian? How exactly do these novels follow Christ? Multanomah Press, you failed to follow with these novels.

    Really enjoyed getting to know this character. Fun first person writing, engages the reader into the life of this woman. She is a Christian woman who understands she needs Christ but so often forgets or choses not to spend time with HIM. Only when life throws her an unexpected demon does she start turning to and relying on God. Please don't expect to be inspired or grown in your faith by reading this book. It is a fictional story, not a devotional. There are no bad words, sex, or vivd violence. Would have no problem letting my young teen boy read this book. Captured my interest, kept me reading. Starting the next in the series.

    My first novel by Melanie Wells will not be my last! The entire novel had such a conversational tone to it, you felt as though you were sharing a coffee with Dylan Foster while she shared her life! She was so likeable, self deprecating and genuine, it made her story even more appealing. The story itself...intense, suspenseful, a bit strange, but kept you wanting to find out what happens next! A fabulous read!
