Occultist leaders at Saint Adrian’s school are in league with an East Salem pharmaceutical company. Together they’ve developed a drug that acts as a time-bomb in children, attacking and killing the prefrontal cortex—the moral center of the brain—

It started much better than the second book and I hoped the things that ruined it wouldn't be here. Although it is toned down, it is still occasionally preachy, but I don't mind since I knew what I am getting into beforehand. It doesn't have anything to do with the rating.

The bad guys are still all non-Americans, but some other nations are allowed to have a couple of good guys. Only few, mind you. The bad guys issues was one of the things that was so glaring in the second book. Here it goes as

This book was an odd mix of genres. It was Urban Fantasy/Paranormal/ChristianFiction all on the main page.

I liked this. There was a lot of different things going on so the pace was set. For being Christian Fiction it wasn't at all preachy and it had a sweet ending. Also with it being Christian Fiction, there was a strong showing of characters who possessed a moral compass. I haven't read the first two book, but I will get to them.

As Christians know, spiritual warfare is all too real. This book does an excellent job of portraying the age-old battle between good and evil.

Where do I begin with this?! Sci-Fi, Suspense, Drama with a little bit of Love thrown in made this for a Hard to put down read.

Loved how it mirrored The Passage except it was more about Identical Twins and why a medication only works one twin and not the other. The storyline was similar to the passage minus the flu expidenic (Fans of The Passage will know what I'm talking about with this)

I'm a fan of Lis's now and can't wait to read more books by her in the future!!

I'm a little sorry to go to 3 stars for this book. I liked the opening 2 books of the trilogy better than this one. It's not that I dislike it, I just don't like it as well.

Now, why? Well, let me say that there are undoubtedly people who will not dislike what drove me a little crazy. The entire series has had a romance story running along with the "supernatural" storyline. I never really thought it overwhelmed the story. HOWEVER in this volume it did come close. For me...Now note, that's "for

An exciting conclusion to this series

St. Adrian's Academy is a source for evil . The world's leaders send their sons to be educated but the students are corrupted to do evil as they are tempted with power and riches, and helped along by the powerful drugs they are given. Satan and his evil forces are using the students to implement a master plan of poisoning the waterways around the world - the ultimate chemical weapon of mass destruction.

I was waiting, almost panting for this book! The East Salem trilogy holds you in suspense and really had me wondering who would survive the battle between good and evil. Well researched, and fast paced with delicious characters, the Lis Wiehl/Pete Nelson author combination is lightning in a bottle. The spiritual overtones are well done and the visual description of 'the angel/demon' war brought me to tears. Read these books in order - you don't want to miss a detail! These should be a film ...more

Just ok. Not as suspenseful as the first two books, and it was kind of confusing to keep track of some people the last half of the book. This book didn't flow well, and felt forced in parts. Sorry.

Loved loved loved this series. Sadly I'm at the end of book 3. But I've Loved These characters and the story and everything that went into this series. Would really love to see another adventure here but if it doesn't happen this was a really good set to read and an awesome story conclusion.

Fatal Tide continues the action and wild ride of Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson began in the first two books, Waking Hours and Darkness Rising. I recommend the other two books be read first so the reader will know what is going on. All the main characters return in this installment with Tommy’s bad puns, his aunt Ruth’s many guns and librarian smarts and Dani’s no nonsense logic.

Finally, the last installment of the East Salem series is here. I was so excited when I know it's coming out and couldn't resist myself to get the book immediately. And similar to the 1st and 2nd installment of the series, Lis Wiehl together with Pete Nelson did not fail to surprise me with more suspense and excitement in

While the series has been more plot driven than character, the author has given us a colorful cast of heroes. Danni has spunk and is fearless and Tommy is unbending in his faith. Their romance continues to deepen and their faith in each other never waivers. Cassandra, Tommy’s ex really shows development in this third novel, and I was impressed with her involvement. A student from St. Adrian’s becomes an ally. I liked Reese, even if he wasn’t fully fleshed out. They draw others into their inner ...more

Gripping suspense, supernatural battles between angels and demons, and intriguing characters make "Fatal Tide" a strong addition to the "East Salem" series. Tommy and Dani return to continue their fight against the evil that has infiltrated the town of East Salem. Their relationship continues to grow in leaps and bounds, and the thread of romance in this novel is sure to please many readers. As with the prior novels in the series, I greatly enjoyed the witty dialogue that sparks between Tommy ...more

Fatal Tide is the final book in the East Salem series. The race against the forces of evil that began in Waking Hours and increased in Darkness Rising, takes on a greater urgency as Satanic forces make a last push to wreak mayhem on the world. But the team headed by Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson are determined not to let evil have its way.

I really liked the time frame for this series. The first book, Waking Hours begins at October, taking advantage of all the creepiness of Halloween. Darkness

The three books in this series have been my favorite books that Lis Wiehl has written. They have also been the most Christian, so that may play into why I like them the best. Of the three books in this series, this one was the best and most exciting, in my opinion.

The authors brought back the same characters from the other two books, and in this book the stakes are higher and the danger more prevalent.

I took me a few pages to remember what had happened in the last book, but I quickly got

This book is another fast paced thriller full of suspense that will keep you wondering what will happen next. This book shows us how Satan works in our world today and how he wants to destroy everything good that God has made. Like Dani and Tommy we are constantly faced with evil in our daily lives but we must rely on God to see us through.

Fatal Tide is an outstanding ending to the trilogy. I liked it better than any of the other books. Tommy and Dani have resolved their differences and their

So sad to come to the end of a trilogy. Great book! Great series!

Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson have written another top-seller! East Salem Trilogy began with Waking Hours #1 and continued with Darkness Rising #2. The story picks up on December 20th; George Gardener and Julian Villanegre are escorting Reese, a young man home from St. Adrian's, to England at Tommy Gunderson's wishes.


The evil that has taken over St. Adrian's Academy is seeping out into the world. Dani and Tommy continue to battle the
