Nightmare by Robin Parrish

Hi All,

From the same author that brought us Offworld, comes Nightmare! I am really exited to be reading this book. I can't give you a full review just yet. I have had some horrid headaches that are hindering my reading. But be assured, so far this is as good as Offworld! Nightmare has the same catching intruiging pace as I had been looking foward to. I belive that haunted houses are either fake, or have resident demons. That said, we are all haunted by something or someone unless we give that over to God. I am odd, I have been through so many "wild" things in my life that what scares others doesn't scare me always. The "Oh wow, that was a scary movie wasn't it?" is often a "No." from me. The things that are truly scary to me are knowing that I know people who are able to say "Lord Lord" but are not doing the will of the Father and are probably not going to make it to Heaven. How many of these demons of our past and daily lives will keep them from the reality of Jesus?

But back to Nightmare, the opening is just wonderful. Encouterning real demons is  never fun. If you do scare easily, read Nightmare with the lights on, in the sunshine.

The Nightmare is Coming...
Ghost Town is the hottest amusement park in the country, offering state-of-the-art chills and thrills involving the paranormal. The park's main ride is a haunted house that promises an encounter with a real ghost.

When Maia Peters visits during her senior year of college, she's not expecting to be impressed. Maia grew up as the only child of a pair of world-renowned "ghost hunters," so the paranormal is nothing new and to her most of the park is just Hollywood special effects. In fact, the ride feels pretty boring until the very end. There, a face appears from the mist. The face of Jordin Cole, a girl Maia knows who disappeared from campus a few months ago.

Convinced what she saw wasn't a hoax and desperate to find answers to Jordin's disappearance, Maia launches into a quest for answers. Joined by Jordin's boyfriend--a pastor's kid with very different ideas about paranormal and the spirit realm--Maia finds herself in a struggle against dangerous forces she never expected to confront on the edge of the spirit realm that try to keep the truth from emerging.
