 Vanish, Tom Pawlik, Suspense, Tyndale, 2008, 364 pages.

Here is Tyndale’s summary of the book:

"A white carpet of mist rolled up from the lake, curling around houses and cars as it crept up the dead-end street. Inside, tall, gaunt silhouettes moved along.
    The survivors looked up in terror. ‘They’re coming.’"

A powerful storm.

A small group of survivors, stranded in a deserted city.

An unsolvable mystery that threatens the very fabric of existence.

A mysterious boy who may hold the key.

When everything else has vanished

Only the truth remains.

    I have to say that this book was a little bit stranger than most. It’s creatures resemble those in Eoin Colfer’s The Supernaturalist, but with the ferocity and vulnerabilities of those in the movie I am Legend. The Christian perspective is not completely shown until the end. For this reason, do not assume this book is Christian in name only. Pawlik does not take the element of suspenseful imagery to very many angles, resulting in repeated incidents.

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
