If you are going to write about spiritual warfare, don’t hide God behind a veil.

The writing is excellent. I had trouble putting the book down. However, she needs to bring her key players together sooner and embellish her ending. After a long tantalizing build up, she ends the story abruptly and leaves a lot of loose ends.

What was most irritating was the fact that she was battling a demon with watered down Christianity. There is only one Christian character, Lacey. She runs into heavy problems in her own life before she even meets Tugger, but she doesn't pray? She never shares her faith with the most important person in her life, only children? Her church life seems shaky at best. Her faith really does not make an appearance until she meets Tugger about three quarters of the way through the story. She prays a prayer of protection over him when the demon attacks, but she never uses the strongest weapon in her arsenal, the only thing that will strike fear in the minions of hell, the name of Jesus Christ.

I would be willing to try another book by this author hoping that she’s not afraid to express some true Christian principles through her characters.
