The Seer by Grant Palmquist In the summer of 1988 in Houston Texas Nick saw a demon. Soon Nick starts having nightmares, very terrifying. Then he starts to see things, demons and visions. But no one else can see them, and no one believes him.  When Sal Burke opens a candy store in Nicks town murders begin to happen, and the killer is named the "Pied Piper". Is it just a coincidence or does Sal have something to do with the killings? A fast paced thriller. Set in the 80's before everyone had cellphones and gadgets adds to the thrill of this story. I liked Nick and his friends, they were the quiet ones, the type that got bullied. But that doesn't stop Nick from being a modern day hero. I find that Young Adults as well as Adult readers will enjoy this thrilling, suspenseful horror story.
