Norton and her family return to Winterhaven, Kristin discovers she's the only one who can see them for what they truly are. The family isn't human. They feed on humans. Norton is aware that Kristin is the one person who can stop them - if she only knew how. But that's one secret Kristin Faraday hasn't learned Reviewed on Adventures in Trash: Or that the elements that keep them apart are explained by stuff that happens in the story?
Again, I can't tell you too much about this; the fun of seeing the authors' meticulous plot unfolding around you like a fantastically good piece of origami is just too good to ruin.

My wife and I are atheists, but our daughter wants to be baptised Catholic
It left me a little confused because I felt like giving up on it so many times but at the same time I really wanted to know what happened at the end. A lot goes on in this story and I got a spooky Stephen King vibe from it, which was funny because King got a mention at one point. The characters were well developed and diverse, the writing flowed like silk and the descriptions were vivid enough to place me right in the center of the story. Then it got to the end and I felt as if I'd been slapped around the head a few times with a deluge of information.
Suddenly it all seems like the entire book was a set up for a series, like a pilot episode of a show about to be filmed. So why the 4 stars?
Because if this is the pilot, I would certainly watch the series. Yes, by the end I was hooked on these characters and this story. I think this book it well worth taking a chance on. One person found this helpful. At first I didn't think there was anything going to come from this book When they say don't judge a book by it's cover, you shouldn't judge by it's title; I'm ready and willing to read the second book.
What a great book!
I really got engrossed in the plot and I'm looking forward to the next installment. The "monsters" aren't a unified "evil" but all have their own agendas which really adds to the plot twists.

Can't wait to see what happens next because this definitely isn't the end of the story. I'm looking forward to seeing the development of the secondary characters as they become the focus of the following books. I have to know what happens next!
An Atheist’s Daughter
Can abandonment restore faith? Are screams better than understanding and threats of damnation and hellfire better than the promise that God still loves them? Remember—as a Christian, you are an ambassador for God. This crucial moment may be the only chance you have to keep the door open.
Allow them to tell you how they arrived at their atheistic conclusions. You will never, ever change their mind by arguing from the Bible if they do not believe scripture to be inspired by God. After all, would you believe someone of a different faith if they attempted to convert you through their own holy book?

Instead, teach them how to read the Bible, rather than your interpretation of what the Bible means. Teach them how to find the truth for themselves—after all, all truth leads to God. Do this by showing your child how to interpret each verse. Have them look for who is speaking, who is being spoken to, the historical context, and the context of the verse within the overall Bible. This will eliminate many of the perceived inconsistencies and cruelties that seem, on the surface, to mar the Bible—this is the source of many conversions to atheism.
