Overview

FIRST TIME IN PRINT FROM A THRILLING NEW VOICE IN MODERN SUSPENSE...

In the tradition of such Signet heavyweights as Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Bentley Little

This house has a terrifying history...

Once upon a time, a group of student radicals found a leader, and followed him beyond all reason.Years before that, in the same house, a prophet was visited by an angel, and followed it to a horrible end.

Now, history is repeating itself.

Peter Coulter ignored the strange rumors about the house-until things started changing. His sister, once outgoing and popular, is now secretive and self-destructive. His father is possessed by a sudden calling from God.And all of them have seen the long-haired stranger in the woods.The one who wants them to do such shameful things, and who beckons them too, to follow him.

    Incest, rape, drugs, and then it ends

    This author needs to seek some serious psychiatric treatment. Every female character is objectified, abused and demonized, which is one of the many reasons I do not care for the book. The story is just not that interesting. The ending fails to explain anything. It makes no sense. It has lots of violence, drugs and perversion, but lacks a solid plot. Its kind of like a b-list horror movie.

    Age of Consent

    This is the kind of book I really like to read ¿ completely engrossing, page turning, and often humorous entertainment wedded to beautifully crafted writing and daring intellectual inquiry. On the surface, it fits snugly into the haunted house genre. It tells the story of an unknowing (and superficially innocent) family moving to a small college town and a house with a murky past. But what happens after that is so offbeat that it takes you on a journey well beyond the genre. For one thing, the ghosts are not ordinary ghosts, but the hodgepodge remnants of misguided sixties radicals and 19th century utopian visionaries. They seduce the inhabitants of the house by praying upon their weaknesses ¿ a teenage girl¿s loneliness, a professorial father¿s ego mania, and a teenage boy¿s horniness and desire to fit in. The ghosts compel or try to compel the inhabitants to commit acts of violence and sexual sadomasochism. The historical and philosophical backdrop provides a framework to understand this ¿ how people can be manipulated by fear, longing, greed, perverted religious and/or political ideals to commit the unthinkable. Another sustaining metaphor of the story ¿ that adolescence can be just plain horrible and dangerous ¿ is treated with a lot of compassion. The characters are very well conceived. Many scenes are gorgeous. The language is beautiful and breathing. And despite the overall creepiness of the book, there are many instances of great humor.

    Age of Consent

    Drugs, Sex, Rock and Roll, depravity, good versus evil, revolution, God, youthful idealism, youthful stupidity ¿ what more can you ask for? This book is not only entertaining, it¿s very smart and incredibly well written. A lot of good laughs. Great characters, some very steamy sex scenes.
