Ultimate Sacrifice by S. E. Green

Vickie has always lived a quiet, ordinary life in an equally quiet and ordinary small town. Yet one fateful night a child turns up dead in the woods behind her house in a ritualistic slaughter. Vickie and her family are suddenly thrown into a national spotlight. But as the investigation unfolds, she begins to realize her family isn’t so ordinary after all. Evil is inching closer to those she holds dear and Vickie isn't sure who she can ultimately trust.

It's always refreshing to end a genre-drought after a long period of abstinence. It's even more refreshing to end a genre-drought and be so completely swept away that I can't wait to read another just like it. It's true, it's been longer than I can recall since I've read a horror novel. And, I can't even explain it because I really love them. When I read the synopsis for Ultimate Sacrifice, it immediately called to me. And I'm so glad that I listened to my instincts on this one. The story starts out pretty eerily... You've got murder, intrigue, mystery, and a seemingly innocent protagonist. What could possibly go wrong? I can usually pick out the plot early on in a story but Green had me completely lost from the beginning. Every new turn was a delightful surprise. Want a happy ending? Try another read. Want something that'll challenge your mind and give you a good scary read? Then I suggest picking this up. It's the kind of story that'll stick with you for a while. It's the kind that I tend to dwell on for weeks because it's not a representation of something impossible. It's a look at the absolute most terrifying people and situations. Situations that, while the stuff of horror novels, it's plausible enough to linger in your thoughts. There's a strong female lead, wrapped up in a cast of creepy side-characters. I can't wait to pick up another Green novel. What a way to get in the Halloween mood!

This book was amazing! I picked it up to start reading at lunch last Friday, and had so much trouble putting it down to go back to work. It was so good that when I got home after work, I picked it back up and started reading as soon as I got home. I couldn't put it down! Instead of watching any tv that night, I sat and finished reading this book. In one day. The story is really the perfect set up for a horror movie, the kind that I always make sure to get to the theater to see whenever one comes out. Now, while because I do go see those movies a lot, I had an inkling of something happening like what ended up happening, I didn't see it going the way it did, so I was still sitting on the edge of my seat until we got to that part at the end, and finally I saw just where and how it was all going to go. And again, even though it went the way you'd probably expect a horror movie/book to go, the author kept you thinking you had to be wrong, that you were just expecting it because of your past experiences with those types of stories, as she threw out one red herring after another. A false lead here, more circumstantial evidence there, and then a backtrack as to why that couldn't be the answer, because something else was actually what had to have happened. Did those last two sentences confuse you? Good, because that is how on the edge you'll be while you read this story and try to do your own detective work to solve the mystery. If you like a book that is exactly like watching a good scary, horror movie, this is the book for you. It is out in perfect time for a scary Halloween read this year, and I hope that the movie rights get sold to this, so that I can one day see it on the big screen!

Well, this wasn’t what I was expecting, in a good way. Told from Vickie’s, seventeen years old, point of view, the story begins when her brother finds a little girl’s body in the woods by their house. It appears to be a ritualistic sacrifice. The family is under suspicion because of the close proximity of the murder and their connection to the girl. Hounded by and condemned in the press, Vickie digs deep, looking for something, anything, to clear her and her family. This story goes quickly. As Vickie gets desperate and does some stupid things to solve the murder, the more reckless she becomes. Her actions are believable. You know how you watch a movie and scoff when the character goes in the basement after hearing a strange noise. We are so sure nothing bad will happen to us that we often do go see. I could feel her frustration when people look at her strange. And her family has some deep, dark secrets. She thinks she knows them, but she doesn’t. Reminds me so much of a movie I watched a long time ago. Two couples are racing to get away from demon worshipers after coming across their sacrifice. Just like in that movie, I kept getting nigglings of something supernatural. Not just because of how the little girl was killed either. I also knew that the more Vickie stuck her nose into the investigation, the darker things would become. It was subtle to begin with. Then I started to get an idea where the author was taking me, and couldn’t wait to see if I was right. I knew what I wanted to happen. It’s horror, right. And I got it. A surreal ending.

What an unexpected twist this tale took for me as I definitely did not see it coming. I found this to be an exciting read with interesting characters and I read it all in one sitting. I was gripped by the death of a character right off the bat and I was held captive until the horrific end. The only reason I gave it four stars was because there were times when the story lagged and seemed to go off the beaten path. I still recommend this book. {I requested a copy for review purposes only and made no guarantee of a favorable review. The opinions contained within are unbiased and my own.}
