    This was an excellent dark thriller. It pulled me in from the beginning and the characters were so well developed. I like the fact that he did it bit by bit. Although it was a bit predictable, it was written very smoothly and fluently. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes good vs. evil books.

    I received a free copy of this ebook from Librarything member giveaway and my review was unsolicited.  This is the second Grant Palmquist book I have read and again was very impressed.  I am a avid reader of horror novels and have found Grant Palmquist to be an excellent writer in the genre.  This book made me feel like I was going to the darker areas of my mind.  I really liked the story line and the character development.  In short this book was about a seventeen year old boy who has been invisible his whole life. His parents are very over productive and don't allow him to do anything! But Norman rebels and is befriended by Zach a fellow classmate that is very popular with the ladies. Zach goes on and becomes a bad influence on Norman and Norman finds himself struggling to decide how far into Zach's dark world he wants to go.  This book made me feel disturbed inside in a good way like some of Jack Ketchum's books!  I highly recommend this book and look forward to more books by Mr. Palmquist.

    Superbly written book with many layers.

    WOW. I could NOT put this book down! This new author has a fresh, unique voice. The quality of writing is simply outstanding. The story is compelling and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Although the main characters are teens, this is not a "teen" novel by any means. The themes explored are dark and forbidden, and Palmquist does not shy away from edgy topics and uncomfortable truths about murder and the will to power. The amazing thing about this book is the many layers it contains -- you only need to look below the surface of the gripping plot to see many themes explored, such as isolation, loneliness, one's place in ever-changing and confusing world, and the nature of God and the church. Other themes, such as dynamics between the sexes, are more subtle, and show a superb understanding of the nuances within relationships. This book is also a biting social commentary -- few books I have read bring to light the uncomfortable truth about our conformist society and how the drive to fit in at all costs can destructive to one's soul. On the other hand, is the alternative, total anarchy and the will to power, any better? Read this book and find out for yourself!
