When I saw Night Chill, I knew I wanted to read it. The cover, beckoned to me. I had to have it, so I sent a request that went to Mr. Jeff Gunhus directly. I am so happy he did because the book took me on a supernatural journey that compared to the greatest in horror-telling! The man can scare you!
Night Chill is about Jack Tremont and his family. Well no, that's not right. It's about a lot of people. Some very bad people. For reasons unknown, strangers are after Jack and Lauren's daughter, Sarah. And they aren't normal people. They're immortals... because they have a process called, "The Taking" and it has to do with killing young people, mostly girls. As Jack is dealing with a guilt-ridden past, he's trying to make a new life for his family when a stranger attempts to abduct his little girl while at a rest area during a thunderstorm. A supernatural game of cat and mouse ensues, leading Jack to think he's going insane, arrested for attempted murder and kidnapping!
Night Chill was a great read, with lots of action, hauntings and an ancient hellion from your darkest of dreams. The actions made you either an angry or heartbroken parent or a 'fraidy cat, cringing at the creaks and shadows of your home while reading in the middle of the night. It was awesome- just the sort of book I love reading! I don't believe it was horror, but there were some seriously horrific scenes, I tell you what! lol This book was like Poltergeist and Hannibal Lector combined! If you like scary, this is the story for you.
Now Night Terror is a continuation of Night Chill. The story carries on with the Tremont family in the same game, just different rules. This time Sarah has to be strong and battles against a similar foe by the name of Momma D. I have to admit, the mommy in me comes out whenever children are hurt in stories- the very beginning of this book has one of those scenes that tears at your core. Once you get past that, you're on to the action, as always.
In this book, Sarah's powers develop instead of going dormant and she learns to control them. The problem is, with every use, she leaves a sort of telekinetic trail for the hungry ones to follow, putting everyone in danger. Thankfully Lonetree and Sorenson are there, and they pack a wallop! I won't say anymore than that, but know this: Night Terror Is Good! You want these books on your bookshelf!
On to the next book! 📚
