I don't want to give any spoilers so I'm going to make the review as vague as possible while still trying to convey exactly how awesome this book really was.

To be completely honest I did find the beginning to be slightly slow and there are a few parts at the beginning where the dialogue seems a little awkward. There is some stuff you have to get through to really dive into the actual story head first. But once you really get into it the action and story line is fast paced.

The book just sucks you

Things were going great for journalist Sandy Travis until a romantic Hawaiian vacation. While on a scenic tour their helicopter crashes resulting in Tom having a near death experience. That event changes Tom into someone Sandy cannot recognize. He is convinced that during his experience he heard the words of God. She is skeptical. Work is also leading her into bizarre situations all pointing her to people who are acting dangerously erratic and who have also had the same experience as Tom. Sandy

Father Olsen has traveled to Har Megiddo to seek information on an ancient text that has been discovered – one that has prophecies regarding the End Times: The Demon Days. He brings this information to Sandy Travis, who works for a news show in New York City called 24/7. Sandy brushes him off; she is a logical person and does not believe in metaphysical nonsense such as this. Besides, she has enough problems of her own – she and her fiancé Tom Hansen have just returned from a vacation in Hawaii ...more

I was actually sent the second book DEMON DAYS – Angel of Light by Richard Finney & DL Snell for review and since this was a prequel (or the start) of the story the authors were kind enough to include it for me. I have not read the second book yet. This review is of Demon Days by Richard Finney & DL Snell.

First, I want to thank the authors for providing a copy of this book for me to read and review.

Demon Days is a short novel about the beginning of the End of Days. We've seen this before, right? Not so is put together so differently than all the other books out there about the Apocalypse.

The main character is a journalist who gets caught up in a supernatural plot soon after a helicopter accident in which her fiance experiences a NDE (Near Death Experience). the plot involves the Middle

I received a free copy of this book through a Good Reads First Read giveaway. Thanks!

Even though, at first glance, this is a type of book I would normally gravitate towards (thriller with religious overtones), I was somewhat reluctant to start this title. As listed, this is a special edition of 'Demon Days'. It has the first book, 'Demon Days' itself and then its sequel 'Angel of Light'.

I'm glad I gritted my teeth and took the plunge, because, as it turns out, there was gritting of the teeth inv

“Do you really truly know how crazy this sounds? Because that would make me feel a whole lot better? “
I wanted a fast-paced thriller that I could read on an airplane flight across country. “Demon Days” was certainly the book to answer the bell. I cracked it open on my lap top… had to wait until the plane took off to continue… then read the entire book before we landed. And that is a compliment because flight was a “Red Eye.”
Rather than sleeping I got involved with Sandy Travis and her boyfriend,

Review: Never have I read a book so full of intriguing plot changes that can keep you guessing ‘til the very end. Finney and Snell have the kind of collaborating ability that writing teams everywhere only wish they could have. This dual novel scared me! The simple fact that this story could hold even an inkling of truth is p

Demon Days follows a reporter's quest to figure out why her fiance has changed so much since a near-death experience . What she discovers is a plot that reads like a mix of The Omen and The Exorcist.

The writing is good and the dialogue is informative without being intrusive. The plot is also decent and it has a few truly creepy moments. The issue that I had (in part, I'm sure, because this is the first in a series) was that things took a bit too long to get going. The action and how things advan

I've read the Demon Days Special Edition and I must have more. This saga has great potential. I anxiously await the next book. This book is fantastic.

Richard Finney and D. L. Snell, Demon Days (Ape Entertainment, 2009)

Messrs. Finney (The Chimes Before Midnight) and Snell (Roses of Blood on Barbed Wire Vines, viz. review 2Jun2010) turn in this slim novel, the first in a series (the second novel of which, Angel of Light, has already been released). There's not a great deal here you haven't seen before, but the authors throw in some interesting twists and adopt the globe-hopping tactic of keeping the reader interested with fun descriptions of, l

This supernatural political thriller is really more of a set-up for what it to follow in a separate book than a complete novel in and of itself. Still, "Demon Days" is a gripping read with an intriguing central premise: that those people who suffer near death experiences and "see God" are actually encountering a different entity altogether. The story moves at a lightning pace, which is perhaps understandable, since there is not much in the way of descriptive narration, character development, or ...more

The scene in the church with the old ladies and the church pews was awesome, I could 'see' it. Great description without being too too much. But maybe I missed something, or the politics threw me, I don't know. It was a little too jumpy/murky in spots. This is a pretty good horror thriller though.

Badly written and badly edited. I gave up a few chapters in as I couldn't concentrate on the plot. Boo.
