    Maia Peters knows more than she really cares to know about the paranormal, as the child of a famous husband and wife ghost hunting team, she has seen the paranormal up close and personal. And she personally wants nothing to do with it. She wants to make her own way in criminal justice, and forensic science and is paying her way through college to study those subjects.
    A trip to an amusement park that is supposed to boast of paranormal activities, brings Maia the biggest surprise she has had in a long time. She sees the spirit of a girl who she had helped observe and study the paranormal investigative techniques. Maia does not know what is going on, but combining both her paranormal experience and her college studies experience she is determined to find out.
    Delving deep into something that turns out to be much darker and more sinister that she imagined, Maia knows she has to rescue her friend, and to do it fast.
    A fast paced moving book, you will not want to put this book down. A Christian publisher with a story about the paranormal is not the norm in Christian fiction and the author is very assertive in pointing out that this book does not promote the paranormal. Nor do I promote the paranormal, I do believe, as the book pointed out, that ghosts are mentioned in the Bible, and while everything connected with paranormal activity, is not a demon it is influenced by demonic powers and activity. That all being said I enjoyed the story, it was a great story, wonderfully written and it was awesome to see the strong Christian in the story take a stand against the demonic forces at work. A book worth reading! 347 pages $14.99 US 5 stars

    Terrifying novel about ghost hunting will make you sleep with the lights on

    Nightmare by Robin Parrish is a terrifying look at the dark side of ghost hunters. Maia Peters is well-known as the daughter of famous paranormal investigators aka ghost hunters. She's tried to separate herself from the fame gained from their television show by enrolling in Columbia University for a career in law enforcement. She's tried to stay away from the hunt, but when wealthy and also famous fellow student Jordin Cole offers her an enormous sum to teach her how to investigate, Maia can't turn it down. The two young women visit several popular famous haunted spots, but the evidence they find is far more than the usual investigation would turn up. Eventually they part, but when Maia visits a haunted house tourist attraction, a ghost who looks exactly like Jordin says to her "The nightmare is coming." She's shaken by the experience, but even more so when Jordin's fiance shows up with the information that Jordin has been missing for weeks. Maia may be the only one who can find her, but when she is threatened herself, it becomes a fight for her life as well. After reading Parrish's previous novel, Offworld, I immediately added him to my must-read list. I didn't even read the blurb about this title before ordering it, because I knew anything from Parrish would be amazing, and this title more than lived up to my preconceptions. While some readers will be angry with him for not denouncing ghost-hunting more fervently, I think he raises some valid and fascinating points about the reality of ghosts in the world. He doesn't romanticize the hunt, anyone who wants to attempt it after reading Maia and Jordin's blood-curdling experiences is out of their mind! Parrish knows how to truly terrify. I couldn't sleep until finishing it, and even then had to turn on every light in the house to get to the bathroom! Parrish is a pioneer in Christian fiction, refusing to toe the line as to what the genre looks like while creating compelling and intriguing stories with fully fleshed characters. I hope this isn't the last we see of Maia Peters, along with Jordin, Derek and Pierre.
