I loved this book. It had me hooked in the first paragraph. Another reviewer complained that it took 6 chapters for the two stories to come together but that was what I enjoyed about it. Kept you guessing for a while. As soon as I vinished this book I ordered two more from this author and they were even better. As for the reviewer complaining about the religious viewpoint in the book, now you know how some people feel when they pay for a book because of all the good reviews and the book is nothing but explicit sex and four letter words.

This was an alright book. I would prefer more suspense. It should also be known it is very heavy on the Christianity input.

I love thrillers and this one did not disappoint! Mike Dellosso created characters that were very believable. People that you wanted to cheer on and tell them not to give up hope. The pace of the book was perfect - it kept you turning the pages, but did not give away any secrets too soon. Scream really starts out as two stories - and as the book progresses the two stories combine to make for a great ending! I especially loved the way the message of Christ was delivered without getting "pushy" or "in your face." This would be a great book for a non-believer or one right on the fence. It made me take a look at whether or not I was telling everyone that I knew about Christ's love and sacrifice - and sadly, that answer is no. So now I get to decide how I will change that!

Overall I enjoyed this book even though it was very predictable. I did not like that it took 6 chapters to bring the two story lines together. It kept bouncing back and forth and I was trying to figure out how they were connected. Once it was revealed (if you read alot of mysteries)it was predictable what would happen, but I did want to keep reading to see if I was right and the final message. I am glad this was a free book, I would have been very dissapointed if I had had to pay for it. The final message was so true and many of us need to wake up and listen, as we all take things for granted. ,

This book kept me wondering with each twist and turn. It took me a while to figure out how the stories and characters fit together which is what I like. Personally, I want to be kept guessing. I will read this author's work again, but book will be hard to top.

I thouroughly enjoyed this novel. As an avid mystery reader, I don't normally care too much for supernatural books, but I absolutely loved this book and plan to keep an eye out for other books by this auther.

A real page turner. I hated to put the book down during the day- but I had to work. There was one evening that the kids had cereal for dinner because I had to finish the book! The characters were interesting and the author conveyed their personal dilemmas, quirks and past well. The transitions in the story flowed well and kept me reading on. The ending was a surprise & I didn’t see it coming when the villain was revealed—total surprise for me. I will read more from Mr. Mike Dellosso.

Way to preachy for me. I felt as if the book had a "subliminal message" the entire time. After 4 chapters, I just couldnt take it anymore. Really disappointed, I was hoping for a scary read.
