Fresh out of Bible college, James Buchman has found a good life for himself as the pastor of a small church in rural upstate New York. But beyond the joy of new friends and young love lurks a deadly secret. When inexplicable events leave innocent souls teetering on the edge of destruction, James can't help but wonder if the congregation's mysterious newcomer may somehow be responsible. Faced with a force of pure, malevolent evil, is James' faith and courage enough to vanquish darkness? One thing is certain - darker times are coming.

A must read. What an in depth story about the power of prayer and reliance on our great God! It's a perfect example of how the devil walks among us as the deceiver. The characters come to life in this audio book to where I felt I was in the story. I would relate this book to those such as Frank Peretti's "This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness".
This was an interesting read. It held my attention all the way through. I liked that it was billed as a Christian thriller and it actually gave credit to God for the power that defeated satan. I will definitely check out the rest of this series.
This seems like a good effort by a novice writer. Author should have shelved it and done a rewrite later because the idea is a good one, but writing is very weak. Went into too much detail about stuff that didn't matter to the story. I kept thinking that a better writer could have made this a really good read. The characters were predictable & the story had no surprises or anything to make this page-turner. I would have returned it but I had already just done so with 2 books. I regret the purchase. I almost wish writers would do re-writes *after* listening to their stories being read. The narrator was so-so & can only work with the writing. I literally cringed when the other pastor was introduced. His first words were something like "Well, bless mah soul!" and I felt like I was listening to an imitation of Butterfly McQueen. Ugh.
