Preview — Demon Days by Richard Finney
While on vacation, journalist Sandy Travis and her fiance, Tom, are in a horrendous helicopter accident. Tom is seriously injured and has an N.D.E. (a Near Death Experience) where he sees a bright light and a figure who tells him that he must go back to the living because there's still more he must accomplish with his life. After Tom is revived, he tells Sandy that he beli...more
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 ...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.
World Building – This story takes place in modern times, and in various locations around the world. It is the “real world” so there is not a lot

Demon Days is a short novel about the beginning of the End of Days. We've seen this before, right? Not so fast...it 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 ...more
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 ...more
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, ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
