I want a new story, a different installment, a new character, a change of scenery and score. How about a new producter and director as well? That night after Sheriff Wells takes me home with a good-ole-boy threat, I try to figure out my options. I torched option A, which was remaining quiet. I burt optioni B, which was telling someone I trust. Option C, the New option, is gathering my things and running away. Option D is doing nothing. Doing pretty much what everybody’s been telling me to do from my very first step into this tiny town.

Book: Gravestone: A Novel (Solitary Tales Series) by Travis Thrasher, David C. Cook Publishing, 2011

Genre: Suspense/Horror
Target Audience: Boys 17+
Subjects: Occult, Dating Relationships, Family Relationship, Spirit world (demons, etc.)
Summary: After her death he promises he will find the truth. But how can you find answers when you don’t know who, if anyone, can be trusted? Obviously not the pastor, the sheriff, the deputy, and probably not anyone related to him or working for those related to him, not even a friend. There are some answers out there; it’s just that they aren’t going to be to his liking.
Notes: This series is for those who like horror and suspense. The spiritual element is that in each book there is one character that knows at least some of the truth of the Gospel and shares it with the main character. But thus far into the series, real answers are not given. In this book the main character begins to “see” into the “spirit world”. He sees or hears things that no one else does. He starts getting told that not only is this town different from anywhere else, but he, himself, is different from anyone else. He has special powers/abilities to see into this spirit world and do unexplainable things. In this book the evil still prevails and appears to be more powerful than the truth of the Gospel. Also, of note is that at the end of this book there is a recommended playlist of a bunch of secular music songs.
Recommendation Scale: 1

Ephesians 6:1 - For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
