Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is my first book this author. 413 pages long. Each chapter is a few pages long. Each chapter jumps between the main characters of the story. Sort of reminds me of Stephen King. Mild sex scenes. Story is pretty interesting. A ex murderer who seeks redemption. A shy love sick cowboy., a demon infested sick kid and a cast of other characters you get to know very well. UFO's , Apostles, Ghosts, a bunch of gross murders. Yes it has a this and more. Going to read the next book by talented writer. Recommend for those in search of UFO's.
Combining aliens, the millenial fear that recently ran rampant, and cultic mania into a net of terror this book takes readers back to the turn of the millenium as the world waited on its ending. Livestock mutilations and satanic symbols send the residents of a small town into a battle between good and evil that may or may not have its origins on earth. Perhaps the most chilling aspect is the fact that none of the speculative horrors conjured up by the words are too unreal, much of what is written here has some basis in the newspapers.
