Dont Judge a Book by it's cover story...

*Protected by the dark of night, Jaimie Piper runs. But is anywhere safe when Evil is hunting you?

She’s just a twelve year-old girl, bumped around between foster homes and relegated to school classes for challenged kids, those lagging in their test scores or with behavioral issues. But her real problem is that she can sense something the other kids can’t—something dark. Something compelling her to run for her life.

All Crockett Grey wants is to mark the anniversary of his daughter’s death alone.

But when his student Jaimie comes to him, terrified, her need for protection collides with his grief, and a tangled web of bizarre events sends them both spiraling toward destruction.

Crockett’s one hope of getting his life back is to uncover the mysterious secrets of Jaimie’s past and her strange gift. It isn’t long before his discoveries lead him to a darker conspiracy, secrets guarded by the highest seat of power in the world—the Vatican.*

They say dont' judge a book by it's cover. All too true in this case. From what I read about this book, I was expecting a Peretti-esque book. Not so.

The first few pages drew me in. I felt the plight of the main characters. However, as it continued I found myself having a harder time getting into it. It proved to me, to be less Christian thriller; and more of a pointed expose of the Catholic faith.

Perhaps if I had been able to sit down & read it at one shot, I would have been less confused, and more drawn into the story.

Either way, If you get a chance, give it a shot. Just know that it might not be at all what you expect.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
