A Voice In The Night, written by Ernestine Dail was a good book about a teenage boy who is going camping with his friends but there's a robbery at the jewelery store across the street from where is mischievious friend works. I loved what a great influence Brian is to children and his friends. This book was a wonderful book also showing that you shouldn't judge people. Erika-Elizabeth Caswell, age 11

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite Brian Bradshaw, Josh Joplin, and Thomas Templeton –- a somewhat eclectic group of friends -- are camping at the Blackstone Cabin. One rainy night, Brian, who is sleeping on the sofa downstairs, is rudely disturbed by furious knocks on the door. A mysterious stranger frantically asks to be let into the cabin. Should he comply? A few days before, a stranger in a black suit kept appearing wherever Brian’s family was. Could he be the person who is knocking on the cabin’s door? A Voice in the Night is a suspense thriller by Ernestine Dail. I really love how Chapter One starts off. “Dark, rainy and ominous was the night”; this sentence is the opening epitome for this short but gripping suspense thriller. The prose is a mixture of literary, classic tone, and simplicity. Ernestine Dail clearly knows how to adequately change the tone of the writing as the story progresses. Flashbacks are clearly written which I appreciate very much –- sometimes writers lose control of this aspect and readers can be confused with the timeline of a story. A Voice in the Night also has a clear plot and the ending is tightly written with no flaw.  On the other hand, I wish the moral messages in the story could be a little more subtle. There are times when I feel A Voice in the Night dangerously edging towards cliches. Even so, this is only a small imperfection. Overall, a short and solid read.

This is marketed as a kid's book, but I am not sure what age I would put it in.  I have an 8 year old and based on the books that I have read with him in the last year, he would not have related to the language used in this one.  But if you move up to the tween or teens I am not sure if the storyline would keep their attention.   It starts out with a good premise and you think it is going to be this 'scary' story, but it fell flat for me.  There was a mystery in who the jewel thief really was, but the story just didn't flow for me.  I thought it would make a great outline for a teen book though.

A Voice In The Dark is a read for young teens. It takes a look at having a bad reputation, can lead to further mistrust and accusations. Even when your innocent. We have a young man named Brian who has what we would all want, the love of parents, faith, and a wonderful home life. Then we have Thomas, his home life has not been wonderful, actually, it has made him act up most of his life. His reputation is not a good one, and he has had some problems with the law. Brian has befriended Thomas, has he made a mistake? You will need to read this very short story to find out, just how much trouble our actions can bring us. Will Brian be sorry he ever even knew Thomas, or will things work out. The book only has 32 pages, and needs a bit more meat in it to keep your attention, there is a lot of potential here. I received this book through Pump Your Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

When I first got the book, I didn't really know what to expect. The cover image is simple yet it actually explains the scene of the main parts in the book. I believe that it is an appropriate cover. I loved the catchy first line. The language used was very descriptive. The first paragraph provided good foreshadowing, made me want to know what the incident at Blackstone Cabin was! The author also provided great background for the characters. The first chapter's ending was captivating and suspenseful. The song lyrics in chapter 2 was a nice touch, it made the competition sound more genuine. I think I enjoyed chapter 4 the most. Mr. Barrett could very easily be my favorite character in the story. I like how the story ran smoothly from one end to the other, and it covered the characters back stories well. I believe that it is relatable for readers of the same age as the protagonist, as most of the characters seem like real actual people we would meet in real life. Most of the family situations of the characters are common in real life as well. Overall it was a very easy, light read. There was no need to look at dictionaries just to get the full feel of the story. I enjoyed the language used, the characters, the plot, the style of writing - it kept me entertained throughout and I was able to finish it in one sitting.
