About the Book:

Ten years after her abduction and near-sacrifice to the Source, Sarah Tremont struggles to be a normal teenager. As much as she’s tried to suppress the power inside of her, it’s grown dangerously strong and has drawn the attention of those who want to possess her power for themselves.

The nightmare that she thought was long over starts again as powerful forces descend upon Prescott City to seek her out. With her parents and Joseph Lonetree’s help, Sarah must stand up to an evil much more powerful than the one she faced in the caves a decade earlier. But in the end, she discovers the greatest danger might come from the power living inside of her.

I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book for an honest review.

I really like Jeff Gunhus’ writing. I’ve read all of the Jack Templar books, which are middle grade/young adult books and I was excited about reading a couple of his adult books. Unfortunately, I ran out of time and was unable to read the first book in this series, Night Chill, at this time but I will definitely read it in the near future. Luckily, Night Terror stands on its own. Even though this is the second book in the series, Jeff Gunhus gives enough back story that I almost felt like I’d read the first book.

Night Terror starts out so horribly I just wanted to put it down and quit reading it but I couldn’t! It was intense and difficult to put down.

The characters are well developed and some of them are quite unique. It was interesting how the different characters with similar gifts used it in such different ways.

Night Terror is full of suspense and terror. It is not for those with a weak stomach but I liked it.

About the Author:

Jeff Gunhus is the author of both adult thrillers and the Middle Grade/YA series, The Templar Chronicles. The first book, Jack Templar Monster Hunter, was written in an effort to get his reluctant reader eleven-year old son excited about reading. It worked and a new series was born. His book Reaching Your Reluctant Reader has helped hundreds of parents create avid readers. As a father of five, he and his wife lead an active lifestyle simply trying to keep up with their kids. In rare moments of quiet, he can be found in the back of the City Dock Cafe in Annapolis working on his next novel.
