The story is well written and definitely can have a reader on edge due to the paranormal activity. Brandon Massey is an amazing paranormal writer. He has a way of creating a story with lively character and he makes you wonder if the story and the events could be real. The characters are strong-willed and courageous. The story has an unexpected plot twist that doesn’t let the action sag at any point. The author included moments that played mind tricks with the characters and a few times I was even wondering what was real. The three days did seem to go by very slow. Len and Olivia didn’t take Dr. Laveaux’s threat very seriously. Time was ticking the first two days in slow motion but as the deadline approached it seems the story picked up pace and the ending rushed.

As the count for the days go by, Dr. Laveaux’s antics increased. This unputdownable tale combines style and suspense. You may need to sleep with a nightlight after reading this terrifying thriller. I enjoyed that the author didn’t overwhelm the story with love and romance. I did like that the couple was up against perilous danger and their marriage bond was strengthened. The author did a wonderful job of creating a believable couple complete with flaws and past emotions that Dr. Laveaux plays on. I wanted things to work out for Len and Olivia but I also felt sorry for how Dr. Laveaux lost his house. Yes he is the horrible bad guy and he’s seeking revenge on all who had a part in taking his home.

The novel is spectacularly paced and gives a full story. A reader can’t go wrong with adding this diverting story to their paranormal reading list.
