Winter Maessen didn’t ask for the gift of prophecy. She’s happy being a freak – but now everyone thinks she’s crazy. Or evil. Goths aren’t all the same, you know. Some are Christians…
Christians to whom God sends visions.
Students at her university are being attacked, and Winter knows there’s more than flesh and blood at work. Her gift means she’s the only one who can stop it – but at what price?
Before I start, I should mention that I am a fussy reader. I regularly stop reading books if they do not hold my attention. Just recently I gave up on a hugely successful bestseller because the author could not hold my interest.
There was no chance of me losing interest in Winter. Newsome managed to hold the interest of a middle-aged dad with a story about a goth teenager. Using believable characters, perfect pacing, top-notch character development, and edge-of-the-seat plotting, he made sure I would follow this to the very end. And am I glad I did. This is the best ending I have read in many years. I had goose-bumps as I closed the book.
Keven Newsome is a born storyteller and I highly recommend Winter to anyone looking for a good read with a powerful Christian message.
An easy five stars.
