Chris Buckley and his mother moved to Solitary, North Carolina after his parents separated over the issue of his father’s faith. In the first book, Chris’s life is shattered when his new girlfriend is murdered in a ritualistic killing by a group he believes is made up of the town leaders. Every moment he feels watched. When he turns to an old friend, someone manipulates her, forcing her to leave.
The creepy factor increases in this installment to Thrasher’s Solitary Tales, but this is definitely a bridge book with no resolution in sight. As Chris attempts to find answers, the frustration level increases. The book is scary and interesting, but since it does not have much closure, it lags a little. I would definitely recommend it for Christians who enjoy the Twilight series.
