    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book


    I have become a big fan of Kathryn Meyer Griffith. I read one book, becoming hooked on her writing. I am glad that she has decided to re-release her older books. She has, I am sure, acquired new fans.

    This book starts in 1960 in or near the woods, spanning 20 years and ending in or near the woods. I have a healthy respect for the noises that I hear in the woods at the back of our property after reading this book.

    In Evil Stalks the Night, we are drawn into the story of Sarah, her brother James and the rest of the family. Like most small towns across the United States, Suncrest is no different than most small towns except for one small detail. Evil lives in the woods and demands human blood. Drawing the local children in, killing them, they disappear most times without so much a trace.

    One by one the evil that lurks about takes Sarah’s family from her. Sarah finds help in her grandmother but not soon enough as she is old and dies before Sarah can get the answers that she needs. Sarah is a psychic, knowing things that most adults tend to not want to believe. After all she is only a young girl. The town felt that her family was strange and somehow at the root of the evil.

    As the evil takes her family one by one, Sarah and James are the only ones that survive. They both move away to live their own lives and get away from the evil that has haunted them all their lives. But can one ever really forget? As much as they tried to lead normal lives (what exactly is normal with what they have gone through) they couldn’t get away from the evil as it seemed to follow them only to draw them back to where it all started.

    Sarah finds her way back to Suncrest after a divorce leaves her penniless. She packs up thinking to move into the house she inherited from her grandmother. Off she goes with her son Jeremy and the help of her brother James.  All she wants is to start a new life.

    Not wanting to give too much away I will let you pick up this chillingly frightful book. I know I haven’t been this scared while reading a book in a long time. You may not want to go out by the woods alone at night after reading Evil Stalks the Night. So pick up your copy and be prepared for the evil that draws you in not wanting to let you go. See if Sarah, her brother James, her son Jeremy and her new friend in town Ben are able to defeat the Evil that Stalks the Night.

    I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good horror stories. This is ranked right up there with some of those scary horror stories by Stephen King.

    'Evil Stalks the Night' is a fast paced thrill ride that follows

    'Evil Stalks the Night' is a fast paced thrill ride that follows the life of Sarah, a psychic who comes to learn there is real evil living in the woods by her childhood home. After moving away, she is forced to return to her grandmother's home and to the haunted woods that have claimed so many children's lives. Will she be able to stop the spirit that is terrorizing the forest before it's too late?

    I found this novel to be well written with a great pace. It flowed easily and the story seemed to tell itself, which made it hard to put down. The possibility of a scary evil being killing children in the woods is told with just the right amount of description that it seems plausible - which scares and thrills the reader. I was drawn in from the very first chapter and couldn't wait to figure out what was happening in the woods and how the novel was going to end. I loved the psychic and the supernatural/paranormal aspects to the story - I thought that the author did a great job with inserted them believably into the narrative. Finally, I felt that the storyline was done in such a way that it kept me at the edge of my seat - waiting to see what was going to happen next. I recommend this for readers who love paranormal/supernatural fiction and for those who want a creepy and thrilling read.

    Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
