Valley of the Shadow

Valley of the Shadow, Tom Pawlik, Tyndale House Publishers, Fiction/Suspense, 2009, 417 pages.

Here is Tyndale’s summary of Valley of the Shadow:

A shadowy world
between life and death
where your worst fears can become reality.

One man lingers on the threshold.

Another has escaped, but he didn’t come back alone.

And a third searches for answers
as his nightmares draw him back.

Sometimes to get to the truth,
you have to walk through the valley.

In my review (which you can read here) of the previous book in this series, Vanish, I mentioned that the book didn’t go to very many possible angles of the story. In this book, however, much more possibility is explored. Many, many things were unexpected. Also unlike the last book, the story ended in a very satisfying way. It also presents more opportunity to delve into the idea. The Christian themes of the book were pretty apparent, some being Heaven, faith, and prayer.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

  1. Wow...sounds creepy :P Do you think you could include a picture of the book cover next time? It might help readers visualize things...unless of course the book cover is really drab :P

    Nice review, by the way,
