    An Excellent Thriller

    I picked this book up at a local library and I couldn't put it down!!!! The cover summary on the inside cover drew me in but Thomas Fahy's writting style kept my attention. This story begins with the main character, Allison's point of veiw and telling her mixed up life that practically ended when a cult leader tricked her parents and killed them five years earlier. She and five close friends killed the cult leader; Jacob, but the memories still haunt her, especially his prediction that all of them would die of their worst fear in five years. Now, her and her friends are reunited at a funeral for their close friend that died of his worst fear. The story mixes amazing characters with a keep you up at night plot. There is a little romance if you like that too!!! It may be a little disturbing to younger audiences, but teens will relish it and read it again and again I loved it and I hope that there is a sequel. KEEP WRITING THOMAS FAHY!!!!!!!!

    This is a really spooky book. The prologue had me scratching my head a bit, and I admit that I wasn't sure if I would like the rest of the novel. But it is undeniably creepy, and by the end of chapter one I was hooked. <BR/><BR/>There are no wasted scenes in this book. Even a ride that two characters take in a car is a chance for character development and flashbacks to flesh out the story. Piece by piece, the terrifying experience that these six kids shared is revealed through a well-crafted plot. <BR/><BR/>Five years ago, six kids were the only survivors of a fire that took the lives of the adult members of the brainwashing cult in which they lived. "In five years' time, your greatest fear will consume you. It will rob you of your last breath." This is the prophecy that they face today. They manage to escape the cult and try to move on with their lives, but cannot forget those ominous words spoken by their cult leader before his death. <BR/><BR/>Brought together again under mysterious circumstances, it becomes clear that some of the evil that haunted them from within the cult still runs free. One by one, the friends are killed, in increasingly gruesome ways, while those remaining try to desperately to find some answers and some peace. <BR/><BR/>With echoes of Edgar Allan Poe, the macabre, murderous details of the plot become a metaphor for these individuals to find control over their own lives, and to live their lives on their terms. The question is: will any of them live long enough to figure out how to do it? <BR/><BR/>The ending is satisfying, with enough details left open-ended to encourage a sequel. I fully expect to see this story on the big screen.

    The Unspoke by Thomas Fahy

    The Unspoken by Thomas Fahy is a thrilling, creepy, yet a great novel. The thought of "in five years time, your greatest fear will consume you and rob you of your last breath" as said in the book, is a scary thought that will get you consumed in the book. If you like books that keep you on the edge of your seat, you won't be able to put this great novel down.

    Message to our young people today

    Set in rural North Carolina, right in the middle of the ¿bible-belt¿ region, ¿The Unspoken¿ has a ring of truth to it. Six teenagers are brought back together five years after surviving a fire that destroyed the religious compound they lived in ¿ as well as all the adults that lived there. The six young adults are now afraid a prophecy that foretold their deaths is coming true. Thomas Fahy has written this book on a 12 year old and up level but it is very readable and entertaining for adults as well. The story also relays a serious message to our young people today¿ extreme religious fantasists that exert total control over people¿s lives are dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.
