Isolation by Travis Thrasher:Blogger Tour

Travis Thrasher has written a horror novel in the style of Steven King who was an important influence in Travis' writing. I must say that I couldn't put it down. It was one of the best page turners I have read in the Christian realm of suspense. The evil portrayed was pure darkness and if your constitution is fragile stay clear because this book could rock your world.

I started this book while sitting in my car in a Starbucks parking lot waiting for my sons to finish their karate class. The sky got dark and storm clouds gathered, thunder and lightning punctuated the words on the pages as I eagerly read the tale of a young, burnt out missionary family on leave from Papua New Guinea. I kept checking my mirrors to make sure nothing was going to jump out of the night and get me.

Back to the story. Strange and disturbing dreams haunt Stephanie Miller. Her husband James thinks that the house so generously offered to them in the mountains of North Carolina might afford them the rest and relaxation they so desperately need. Nothing could be further from the truth...
They have become targets of unmentionable evil.

This is a great read for anyone who likes scary stories. I do- however, I couldn't sleep with this book on my bedside table!!
