    Rarely Happens

    It happens only on rare occasions but when it does my whole life seems to be put on hold. As I began reading this book my attention was taken hostage and I could not use it for anything other than consuming this book at once. Years ago I had done a study on Ephesians 6 and the armor of the believer, so I was familiar with the content in more ways than one actually. Having been through an evil day or two during my thirty-two years of knowing Christ on a personal level, I could relate to Dylan. I consumed the book in one reading, an entire night. I love the way the ends where frayed during their presentation and then one by one tied in neat little knots of completeness. Extremely intelligently written and thought out. My definition of a good Christian book is one that makes you search the scriptures and in turn draw closer to Christ, this meets that criteria. As soon as I read the last word I pressed the shop button on my Nook Simple Touch and purchased "Soul Hunter" the second in the series.

    Hard to Put Down

    I absolutely devoured this book. What I want to share is how much I enjoyed this book. I squeezed in reading while my husband took his contacts out before bed. Basically, if I could read When the Day of Evil Comes even for a moment, I did it. Truly I only put the book down in order to not be rude.

    The story introduces us to Dr. Dylan Foster who is a psychology professor at SMU. Dr. Foster sounds like the kind of woman I would have aspired to be when I was growing up. She is strong, well educated, beautiful, and has direction. Dylan's main flaw might be that she is a bit disconnected from those around her. She seems to have few close ties. Life may be slightly predictable and a bit boring for Dylan, but that changes rather quickly after an afternoon picnic with her colleagues at a lake.

    From a meeting with a strange and rather creepy individual, Dylan finds herself on a path to possible personal destruction. Her usually ordered life is slowly coming unraveled with her professional ethics being questioned and her very career being put in jeopardy. Worse still she seems to be under some sort of spiritual attack, and that is far more difficult to get ahead of when you are accustomed to an orderly life where the rules are usually followed and most things are easily explained.

    This story had plenty of edge and mystery to keep me reading. It contained characters that were entirely realistic and believable. This is a book that kept me actively engaged from the very first chapter. Seriously, I did not want to put this down. There were some questions in the story that kind of left things up to the reader, but that could be so you can find out more in the other books in the series.

    Melanie Wells took me on a very interesting ride that I enjoyed thoroughly. I look forward to reading the second book "Soul Hunter" this week, and if it is anything like the first, I will be devouring "My Soul To Keep" the week after.
