"The Lord has appointed you to a special duty in these last days and given your life a unique purpose. Will you turn away from the myriad temptations of this wicked world and answer His righteous calling?"

The Walters family has just purchased the perfect home if only it weren't located in the small hick town of Harrington, Indiana, and if only it weren't haunted. David Walters is an atheist now, but his minister father taught him from a young age that Satan would one day deceive all mankind by pretending his demons were extra terrestrials. The day the Walters family moves in, they spot a flying saucer outside their new home. Things only get stranger from there. David Walters is about to learn what it means to be truly haunted, forcing him to confront his past, fight for his family, his soul, and his sanity.

This is the first of five chapters in THE BOOK OF DAVID, a serialized tale of terror from Robert Kent, author of ALL TOGETHER NOW: A ZOMBIE STORY and PIZZA DELIVERY.

 

 

Getting to chapter two took me longer than I hoped. The book is worth the wait and fortunately picks up right where chapter one leaves the reader.

In this one we get to see more of what is going on with Miriam. We get to see behind the scenes of staying in a house that is making her feel more and more unwanted. David is sadly occupied with work and is home less and less. Which just makes the fact that she’s in the house, by herself with her son, even more menacing. The creep factor was definitely raised quite a bit for chapter two. In chapter one I got to read about David and Miriam and got their backgrounds but now I’m getting more of what is going on in their present state of affairs and it is not pretty!

Nothing horrible has exactly happened yet. There are some really weird things going on but both of them are just starting to think they’re crazy. And of course they’re not going to talk to each other about the weird goings on because that would give life to the things and nobody wants that!

Miriam actually does talk to David but he has his own mess to deal with. Sadly, he doesn’t quite have time for her now. I’m more worried about that than the strange happenings around the house, although there is definitely some CREEPY poltergeist stuff happening all around Miriam. What’s worse is that they do not have any money to put into leaving because everything is in this creeptastic house! Whether they like it or not, they’re stuck.

This one was a lot faster than chapter one. There was a bit more about David’s past, mostly from a moment in church when he was saying the ending prayer. It seems like the plot ominously surrounds this one moment in time. Although it’s in a church and he starts seeing people and prophesying, it’s mysterious way it came about is what makes me the most curious.

So far these are worth the read. I’m having a fun time getting into this story. Onto chapter three!
