The Strange Man, Greg Mitchell, The Coming Evil - book one, Realms, Suspense, 2011, 292 pages.
My thoughts: For the second time reading this book, I noticed many great scenes that were added, and a lot of description. Mr. Mitchell is wondrous when it comes to showing rather than telling! The characters were well portrayed, despite needing a little more of Josalyn. *SPOILER ALERT* The character shift in Dras was realistic, in the way that Christ can change a person so suddenly, like Paul, for instance. *SPOILER ALERT*
Now for the horror part. I was reading it until I finished at 12:45 a.m. The suspense is nail biting, and you can’t help but read further. Very frequently I imagined it so vividly that I thought I was hearing scratching at my window.
Though there is quite a bit of gore, there are no inappropriate scenes or references. The book is very good in that regard. Realms chose well in publishing this book.
My rating: 5 stars
