"Night Terror" Adult Fiction Book Review
Hey folks! Some of you may remember I reviewed another book by Jeff Gunhus back in June. Night Chill is the first title in this series and you can catch up by reading my review of it HERE. Book two in the series, Night Terror, is quickly approaching it's release date of October 1st. I loved the first book so much that I was super excited to be able to review this one in advance as well!
Night Terror picks up with the Tremont family 10 years after the first horrible accident in Prescott City, Maryland, where there was a massive cave-in at a nearby abandoned mine and many people went missing...Of course, there is always more than one side to any story. After so much time has passed, Jack Tremont figures the worst has passed for his family, especially his daughter Sarah. Unfortunately, he couldn't be more wrong.
While The Source and Nate Huckley may have been killed in the cave-in, there are still many fanatics out there who would kill Sarah Tremont, now 16, in a heartbeat to get just a little bit of her power. Jack can't help but wonder why one of these cultists, simply known as Mama D, is so hellbent on kidnapping his daughter when she hasn't even had her powers since the incident from 10 years ago. However, the bearer of bad news and the Tremonts' old friend, Joseph Lonetree, believes Sarah has been hiding her abilities this whole time, which her parents find out shortly after is true.
Things quickly escalate and the Tremonts find themselves looking for help in the unlikeliest of places and running out of time to save their daughter before Mama D and her gang get their hands on her. From top secret experiments to Native American shamans, this book will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you wondering what will happen next.
As I've mentioned before, Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors. Needless to say, Mr.Gunhus quickly became one of my new favorites after reading Night Chill. If you like good suspense and storylines that are a little "out there", you will love these novels as much as I do.
I have to admit, while I still enjoyed Night Terror, I felt more engaged in the first book. Maybe it was just because I was still learning about all the characters and what "makes them tick". However, I still can't wait to read the next book in the series (I'm assuming there is one by the way this one left off). Judging from the way Night Terror ended, it should be really good! Happy reading!
You can find Night Terror on Amazon and Goodreads.
