..an intense novel, involving a protagonist with deep feelings and attitudes, who is hounded by mysterious and bloodcurdling forces.

Masterful, Exceptional, and Thought Provoking...It is cliche to say things like `page turner' and `I could not put this book down', however it is in fact true. I did in fact read it cover to cover in a single sitting....The quality of the writing is truly exceptional, the character development is masterful, and the subject matter startlingly thought provoking. --~~Bloggernews.net, December 28, 2009
