    ~All about a young and conflicted pastor swept into a supernatural tornado of events after his ex-fiance is killed. As more deaths follow, it is evident how crucial Aidan (the pastor) really is in the mysterious set of events.~ I think many of us can relate to the main character, Aidan, and his struggles with faith. If not, then the depth of Aidan's personality should qualify him as relatable. I was surprised to see how much attention was given to the rest of the characters. Even if the book went long periods of time without any interaction from a certain character, you could still probably imagine what they were doing in their life from former details. In fact, so much detail was given, I was scared something bad was going to happen to every single one of them. I guess I've read too much of George R.R. Martin's work. I wasn't crazy about some of the dialogue, especially between Aidan and his college buddy who he spent time chatting with on the Internet, but I understand sometimes you have to have that interaction or else it would just be the main character talking to himself in his head for, like, five pages. There was also a pet peeve of all the other characters repeating for Aidan to "be careful" to the point where it was as annoying as a fly buzzing around my nose. One thing I cannot complain about, though--it was well-written! I loved the imagery and how effortlessly the words seemed to flow. It helped me to have a picture of the crime scenes in my mind as the characters went on this scavenger hunt of sorts. I wanted so badly to figure the mystery out with them (or before them). And I have to say...I love it when a book can give me goosebumps. I haven't read anything with even a hint of the supernatural or anything related to horror lately, but this book--a mixed genre of theology and suspense--really took me for a spin. *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
