Raven's Point by Melinda Metz

An ancient evil has reawakened on the small island of Raven's Point, eager to cause death and destruction as it did hundreds of years before.

Three teens--troubled basket-ball star Seth McFadden, driven Tavia Burrows, and shy Jane Romano--must battle the evil, armed with their knowledge of their home's violent past and with their newly-developed supernatural abilities.

About the Author

Melinda Metz has long been fascinated with the paranormal. She explored the world of aliens with her Roswell High series, entered the mind of a psychic girl in the Echoes (originally published as Fingerprints) series, and detailed the struggles of a group of teens with powers in Raven�s Point. She enjoyed having the chance to get up close and personal with vampires in Crave and Sacrifice, written with the fab Laura J. Burns. She was on the writing staff, along with Laura, of TV shows Roswell (based on her series) and 1-800-Missing.

Next up for Melinda and Laura is the YA thriller Sanctuary Bay coming from St. Martin�s Press in 2015. You can visit them on their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter @melindametz and @ljburns.

Melinda lives in Concord, North Carolina with her dog, Scully (named for the X-Files heroine, of course).

I found this book stuffed into a lonely crevice of my Junior High library about 5-6 years back. To be honest I wasn't really expecting anything amazing; my pickiness for a truely "good" book was nearly nonexistant back then. I judged many a book by it's cover. This one had been dressed with a cool-looking font, a color-coordination that matched my favorite hues, and most of all, the overall feeling of eeriness. I took it home not intending to read it, but rather to get my mom pissed for bringing home such a, as she would put it "demonic satan book, you better take it back tomorrow". Of course, as books usually did back then (which is not surprisingly why I love reading/writing to this day)this one took me by surprise. As young and naive as I was when the brief sensuality came into play, it was a book easy to understand and hard NOT to get attatched to the characters or chilling plot. Melinda Metz pieces the puzzle of Raven's Point together, weaving through each character's situation while at the same time distributing the evil that is poisoning the entire town & leading to the inevitable climax. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in tragedy, High School issues, flashbacks, dark themes, romance, hidden pasts & secrets.

I watch horror movies and laugh. I read Stephen King with a smile, but Raven's Point made me shiver. It is not the supernatural storyline (although that ties the novel together nicely) but the things that can, do, and have happened in real life that make you quiver. Read it...I dare you.

okay, okay. i know some people (other reviewers) found this book a bit shocking. and yes, it does have its moments. but i'm not recommending this book to impressionable 4 year olds. excellent storyline, a little romance...the rare bits of gore only add to the overall suspense. excellent. a real spooky read. read it like 8 times and it's still good.

I love horror and have a high tolerance for what makes me shover. I can't remember any book that's been able to do it accept this once. The novel has an entrancing supernatural element that holds it together, but it's the author's presentation of cruelties that can, do, and have happened in real life than send chill up your spine.

This book was nothing like Melinda Metz's wonderful Fingerprints and Roswell High series. It read like a bad RL Stine novel, had some really disgusting and depraved stuff in it, I felt sick reading it. I can't recommend this to anyone, not even fans of the author. The most sickening book I've read in years.
