Smashwords book reviews by Ann B. Keller

  • Absence of Faith on March 09, 2009

    There are some stories that haunt you long after you close the cover - Absence of Faith is one of them. Some of the inhabitants of Ocean Village suddenly have horrible hallucinations and near death experiences. Their red, burned skin and terrible symptoms confuse and frighten the entire town and many are certain they’ve literally been to Hell and back again. Law enforcement is baffled and a group of Satanists takes advantage of their momentary confusion, paving the way for the third Anti-Christ, Kyle Mabus. Finally, detectives and well-meaning citizens unite, exposing the coven and eliminating their threat to the peaceful townspeople. Unfortunately, Kyle Mabus escapes a fiery death, surviving to spread fear, pain and destruction elsewhere. All of the time I was reading this book, I kept thinking about what an incredible movie it would make. The special effects wizards would have a field day with this! Like Poltergeist, Absence of Faith lingers on in the uncertain recesses of my mind, a dark black shadow in a quiet corner of my thoughts. Was it real? Could such a thrilling but monstrous tale really occur? I wonder. Ann B. Keller President of Kodron Productions, Inc. Author/Screenwriter

    Delightful. I certainly appreciated this unique group of poems written from the perspective of an avid gardener. Filled with humor, I read these in a single sitting, chuckling all of the way. A delight for the reader searching for something a little different.
