Publisher's Summary

CBA best-selling author Travis Thrasher delivers powerful truths in this chilling tale reminiscent of a Stephen King or Frank Peretti novel.

After tragedy in Papua, New Guinea, a missionary couple returns to America and begins drifting apart from each other and from God. When their family moves into a Smoky Mountains retreat, they can't imagine the terror that awaits.

Scary Read!

I'm only through the first part of this book but wow, it's on the same par as Stephen King. It appears to have religious undertones, and I'm not a religious person, still the book is terrific. And the narrator makes it all worthwhile! Read this one.

The characters suffrer. So does the reader.

Missionaries, man and wife and two children, move into a creepy house in the mountains. The house rivals the Amityville Horror. The whole thing starts to fall down around them, with scary stuff and bloody rooms and murder and six feet of snow. It's obvious they should band together and take some action. But she won't tell him what she's experiencing out of fear she's crazy and doesn't want him to know. He won't tell her what he's experiencing out of fear he'll drive her deeper into the psychosis she doesn't know he knows about
Instead, they whine and pray constantly. She cries and worries about going crazy, while he curses God and feels guilty. They are truly a pathetic pair.

The writing is mediocre. The author knows a few phrases which he uses to describe just about everything. The characters are unsympathetic and passive, waiting for God to save them from a situation they got into with their eyes wide open. They escape in the end (with God's help, of course). I only hope they haven't survived to become a sequel.
