Creston Mapes has quickly become one of my favorite Christian authors with his fast-paced, realistic, novels. Darkstar deeply touched me because of the open way in which author Mapes portrays the two main characters: one, a rock star who has everything but nothing, and the Christian young lady who prays for him for over a decade. The realism of the rock star and his life astounded me, and the evangelistic nature of this book has made it my favorite of his thus far - and believe me, I have a lot of favorites of his few books! Great job, Creston Mapes!

A thrill ride read about a drugged out millionaire rock star on trial for the murder of his psychic, and a Christian girl in Kansas who is praying for his soul. Must read.

Everett Lester and DeathStroke are musical superstars however fame and fortune are not as fulfilling as he thought that would be. He turns to drugs and alcohol to fill his emptiness and to Madam Endora Crystal, his personal psychic for spiritual guidance. Through Endora's guidance, Everett turns his back on Christianity and encourages his impressionable young fans to do likewise............. However, Everett soon finds himself on trial for the murder of Endora. He is depressed with no hope for the future. As he contemplates suicide his only regret is badly injuring a teen fan. The letter from Karen of Topeka, Kansas makes it clear she dislikes his music but prays for his soul. No one has ever cared what happened to him except when the music sold. More letters arrive and soon Everett begins to wonder why he crossed to the Other Side instead of turning to Jesus. Though he still faces the possibility of capital punishment, Everett is beginning to find solace with Jesus, but he wonders if it remains too late for him to give his lost soul to God.............. This is an interesting character study that showcases a lost soul who has fame and fortune yet feels empty. The beguiling story line shifts between Everett¿s present woes and his memories while she knows he needs Jesus to save his soul. Profanity and implied drug abuse add depth to the characterizations of Everett and the band, and the Jesus is where it¿s at message can feel heavy handed at times but fans of insightful modern day Christian fiction will want to read Creston Mapes¿ strong realistic tale of salvation............

Room 67 <p> The walls were green and the floor was wooden. A table and three chairs sat dangerously close to the door, and the bright green bed was crooked. A bowl with a can of peas sat on a shelf. The sink had a leak. The window was beautiful, and there was a veiw of the arena and the garden.
