Early praise for The Devil's Game:

The book reminded me a little of Demon by Tosca Lee. Overall, I liked it!
-Veronica Sternberg

Loved the book.
-Elizabeth Draper Guerrero

...reminded me of Frank Peretti's Monster. Both books do a great job of bringing the dangerous prowling lion to life. I wish there were more books along this vein to help us wake up to the battle all around us.
-Craig Hunsicker

If you are interested in Spiritual Warfare, this is the book for you.
-Cheryl Rowland

I was hooked from the first page. It really makes you think about the influence the devil can have in our lives, even he doesn't walk up and introduce himself. It also reminds us he can only influence us as much as our much stronger God allows.
-Tracie Rye

I just finished reading The Devil's Game. I am impressed, I loved it.
-Vanessa Winters

The Devil's Game leaves one to ponder to what extent Satan influences our daily lives and the lives of those around us. Scripture tells us that he is roaming around like a lion seeking those to devour and in this book, he does just that.
-Terrie A Steevens

I really enjoyed The Devil's Game. It pulled me in and kept me interested until the end.
-Cindy Heinrich Jimenez

I was drawn into the storyline and held there til the thrilling conclusion.
-Valerie Lloyd Wynn

Great story line and an enjoyable read.
-Nancy Rowaan-Newstead

I really enjoyed the storyline and was hooked until the very end. I think it rings true with life and our experience of the struggle between good and evil. I recommend this book!
-Sharina Kim

Wow! What a good read! I couldn't let it go until I was done!
-Ronell Stickling

The Devil's Game

Fresh out of Bible College, James Buchman has found a good life for himself as the pastor of a small church in rural upstate New York. The community has welcomed him and he loves the work. There is even a woman in his life now.

There is only one dark spot on this otherwise happy life--a man claiming to be the devil himself. For reasons James can’t begin to understand the devil has come to his little town of Harmony.

And now, people are getting sick under mysterious circumstances. Getting sick and dying. James’ friend falls victim to the same illness. And when the devil comes and tells James that he can make it all stop, if James leaves town, the young pastor is tempted to do it for the sake of the community.

What is the devil's plan? And more importantly, with God's help, can James stop it before it's too late? Find out now in The Devil's Game.

If you are a fan of Peretti, Lee, or Dekker, The Devil's Game is for you!

    Not since Stephen King or Frank Peretti have I come across such

    Not since Stephen King or Frank Peretti have I come across such an exceptional Christian Supernatural Suspense until I picked up Daniel Patterson's The Devil's Game. In fact if you asked Simon Paradis, Harmony's newest resident, he would tell you that you have lived yet until you have met him. Things are going to get a whole lot more interesting for the people in Harmony. What they don't realize is that their very souls are on the line and the last time, Simon came to town, every single person died who chose to stay and see if they could match wits with him.

    Reverend James Buchman at New Hope Church knows that the man in front of him wearing a long, black coat that is frayed at the edges, long hair and a black goatee with some gray in it, looks much older than he appears even though he can't put his finger on it. Simon Paradis seems to be able to charm his way into volunteering to help out all the people who are part of James church. Little do they really know what his true motives are. Not only is he able to control the thoughts of people he likes to call "weak-minded" but he has a sinister plot in mind if he can only get rid of Reverend Buchman.

    He knows that subtlety and patience go a long way to bring his plans to fulfillment and all he needs is to convince a few key players in town to do their part to keep Reverend Buchman busy trying to save some people while he begins his deadly game. All he was hoping for was for the Reverend to be willing to lay down his life for his flock or in a twist of fate, simply leave town and Simon will take care of the rest In fact his sinister past has decimated cities in the past, and he is looking to make Harmony his latest target. With Reverend Buchman have enough faith to beat the devil at his own game? Check this one out and see!

    For fans of Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker and Stephen King, you will definitely want to pick this one up. It's easy to get addicted to it and you can literally inhale this one in a matter of hours. This is a supernatural thriller that pits the devil against the pastor to see who will ultimately win in this spiritual battle for the town of Harmony. This is the first book in the Reverend Buchman Series and at this time is only available for eBook readers. This book is so well written because it engages you from the first chapter and before you know it, you're done. It does have a bit of a cliff hanger ending so you know that the battle continues and Simon is still on the loose. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and LOVE this genre, not to mention it's a Christian suspense thriller! I can't wait for more from Daniel Peterson.
