My Review:
Night Chill by Jeff Gunhus is a dark tale of one family’s twisted journey through a nightmare of epic proportions as they become the victims of deceit, treachery and the quest for eternal life at any cost. Something is special about Sarah, one of Jack and Lauren’s young daughters and there are those who will stop at nothing to capture and use her for their nefarious purposes. What evil lurks in this small and seemingly quiet town? What demon has one crazed scientist unleashed and why does it want Sarah? Their nightmare began on a dark and stormy night, but how will it end?

Jeff Gunhus starts off fast and doesn't let up, from page one, I was baited, hooked and reeled in completely. Part mystery, part thriller, part sci-fi AND part paranormal, fast-paced, intense, what’s not to like? The characters were intense, detailed and their pain, terror and confusion felt real! I had to relax my death grip on my Kindle, I was that involved, hanging on every word, action and event as I was taken from an innocent car ride into the bowels of an underground scene from Hell. And the ending? It could have gone a couple of different ways without a doubt, but I have to say, I was not able to second guess the author, brilliant!

I received this review copy as part of the NIGHT CHILL Virtual Tour and Giveaway stopping at Tome Tender October 20, 2013.
