I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received.

I want to start with my LOVE for this cover. It is what caught my attention originally when I was asked to be part of this blog tour. It says so much and, at the same time, leaves you wanting to know more.

This book is the perfect sequel to Night Chill and I absolutely loved it. Where the other book had me a little frustrated and confused at first, this one immediately had

This is the second book in the Night Chill series. It has been 10 years since Sarah Tremont was abducted. Sarah tells her parents that she does not remember a thing about the Source and the many deaths that took place. This is a lie! Sarah remembers every last detail of what happened that night. Sarah has usual powers and they are growing stronger everyday. The nightmare that Sarah believed was once over, is beginning again. There is an evil woman who is coming to steal Sarah powers. The evil ...more

Night Terror is the follow up to one of my favorite horror books, Night Chill.

In the very beginning we follow a few news articles about what has happened since Night Chill, how Lonetree is MIA and there is a manhunt for both him and Sorenson. They went missing (with good reason) and they are wanted.

Then we jump in to today, 10 years later, the anniversary is on us and Jeff pulls no punches with dumping us right in the middle of the horror show. I was quite creeped out right from the beginning.

Spoiler alert – Book II of the trilogy

Book I Night Chills. See my review here.

Night Terror starts out with a gruesome and horrifying description of Charlie’s death, making me prepare myself for a frightening and terrifying ride into the unknown evil. I am really looking forward to getting my scare on.

I was surprised at the horrible action from the very beginning, but I rubbed my hands with wicked glee and a gleam in my eye. I want to be terrified, hanging on every work, rapidly turning pages,

Now Night Terror is a continuation of Night Chill. The story carries on with the Tremont family in the same game, just different rules. This time Sarah has to be strong and battles against a similar foe by the name of Momma D. I have to admit, the mommy in me comes out whenever children are hurt in stories- the very beginning of this book has one of those scenes that tears at your core. Once you get past that, you're on to the action, as always.

In this book, Sarah's powers develop instead of

Gunhus is phenomenal

Ok, so, first book was amazing, just to put that out there. With that said, I was enthralled night terror. I couldn't put it down. Somehow Gunhus made it more terrifying, more gruesome, and more evil. Not sure how, but he did it, and if I could give this book 6 stars out of 5 I would. Hoping to see a third book!
Reminiscent of Stephen King's _Dr. Sleep_, this sequel to _Night Chill_ is a worthy addition to the story. _Night Terror_ returns us to the lives of the Tremont family. It's been ten years since the events in the caves beneath Prescott City. Sarah Tremont has grown up, and her powers have grown exponentially. Her parents, unaware of those psychic powers, learn from Joseph Lonetree and his pal Sorenson that Sarah has been targeted for death from a group of sadistic child killers who wish to take ...more

I have to say this series completely shocked me. I wasn't expecting a whole lot but the twists and turns of both caught me off guard. Wonderful imagery awesome character development and the native American folklore and legend just really set it apart from other horror books i have read.

Had a hard time putting this down! And I'm hopeful that this is not the last in the series. The end suggested there may be room for a third book?

Oh yes.

If you like the supernatural and some gory details and a fast moving story line you should read this (book one first). Loved it.

The second in this series, and it seems as though there might be a third one coming out one day. This was a great horror story, a little too much blood and guts and gore than I am used to but not so much that it ruined the book for me. I recommend this book for fans of horror.

I received a copy of this book as part of the Xpresso Book Tours Blog Tour.

A lot of times I am skeptical going into a second book with the same characters and the same basic situation. I somehow feel from the beginning that I’m going to be disappointed, especially if I really loved the first book. Thankfully I wasn’t at all disappointed!

Ten years have passed between Night Chill and Night Terror. Little Sarah Tremont is now sixteen years old and the entire Tremont family is trying to put the

A decade ago, the residents of Prescott City, Maryland experienced a minor earthquake - as the result of a massive mine collapse and an expansive sinkhole that opened up in the area. Several people had died in the limestone cave-in, and their loved ones still mourned their deaths. At least, this was the official version of what happened.

However, for a select few members of community, the reality of what actually happened so long ago still haunts them. Sixteen-year-old Sarah Tremont and her

Absolutely loved the start of this! It jumps right in! Unlike normal I even read the foreword from Jeff Gunhus (I'm not sure why I don't normally read these but I think I like to keep all ideas of the book for after I read the book so as to not give ANY spoilers) and Jeff had mentioned that this was a book that his wife would not read. I read the first so I know how gruesome Jeff's mind can be but this intrigued me even more than normal. Maybe because I'm a bit crazy and I really like reading ...more

The sequel to Night Chill is just as disturbing, maybe even a little more so. Night Terror takes us ten years into future, after the event that rocked the little town of Prescott to its core. All the key players are there. In this book we hear much more from Sarah, the girl with the gifts. The ‘source’ from the caves turns out not be as gone as we thought and a new group of monsters enter the scene. The source has even stronger allies now, and will stop at nothing to get to Sarah.

The book begins by cleverly recapping the events of the previous book via newspaper articles. Ten years have passed and Jack Tremont still lives in Prescott City with his wife Lauren and their daughter Sarah, who can't remember any of the events from ten years ago - or so her parents think. Their oldest daughter, Becky, is in boarding school trying to deal with her own bad memories. Jack and Lauren realize Sarah still has her powers and her memories, on the same day that their old friend Joseph ...more

Greetings, children! It is I, the slowest reader in the universe. Back again for another review (ignore the fact that this is my first review.)

I received this book in a GoodReads giveaway in February of this year, I wasn't kidding about being a slow reader.

But I digress.

To begin, I must admit that I hadn't actually read the first book in the series, Night Chill, however due to the quality of Jeff Gunhus's writing I plan on going back to read it.

Eventually. (Still a slow reader)

Y'know when you're watching a movie and the intense part kicks in. That's when you hear a 'dun-dun-dun' sound. That's the exact sound that went through my mind at the end of this book.
This book left things wide open for another one, but I don't know if i can handle anymore of Huckley. It would have to be outrageous and unheard of to keep my interest much longer. I just feel like he has terrorized enough. Maybe if the story focused on Daniel instead of Sarah, I might be up for more. I think it

It is ten years later and the local newspaper marks the anniversary with a memorial article of those lost in what the town views as a simple cave in. Not only are emotions and memories stirred up within the family of those lost and affected by what really happened in the underground caves, but we find that an evil paranormal entity has just been waiting for Sarah to grow stronger and is now stirring as well.

This is an excellent follow up to Gunhus's Night Chill book. It is just as eerie,

I received a digital copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

"As I've mentioned before, Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors. Needless to say, Mr.Gunhus quickly became one of my new favorites after reading Night Chill. If you like good suspense and storylines that are a little "out there", you will love these novels as much as I do.

I have to admit, while I still enjoyed Night Terror, I felt more engaged in the first book. Maybe it was just because I was still learning

The beginning pace of this book was better than the first one. I loved the first book, but it was easy to put down until about halfway through. This one however grabbed my attention right way. It can be hard for me to find and enjoy true horror books, but this series was great. I like how it was somewhat left open for another book, too. I'm going to have to check out more books from Mr. Gunhus now. Hopefully they are just as good. I was really able to visualize a lot with this book. Not sure if ...more

Even better than the first!

It's not often that I'll say that I like a sequel better than the original, but I liked this even better than Night Chill. I felt the characters were even more developed (as they should be in a sequel), the plot was more engaging, and the villains were more scary and believable. I hope there is going to be a third in this saga because I have really grown to like these characters, especially Lonetree, and I'd like to see what will happen to them next.

Loved this book. Lone tree is my favorite character and Sorenson is hilarious! I loved how he joked about the way Lonetree shot up Jacks house like it was no biggie. If I didn't have to read for college I could have easily finished this book in one day just sadly not the time. If the author comes out with a third book in this little series I'll be for sure and getting it regardless of school work load! Would love a lot more on Lonetree and give the guy a gf :)

Worth the Read

Usually the original story is always the best, whether it be from books or movies. But this was just as enjoyable as the first. That is certainly good news, for the way this book ended, another installment could conceivably be being worked on as I type this. If so, it's going to have to be really good as to keep the reader from saying "oy vay". Anyway bottom line is this, if you enjoyed the first, you'll enjoy the second. Happy reading!

Another great novel from this author. The journey for this tormented family carries on and supply's lots of twists and turns. Evil seems to be everywhere but a fight to the end proves this family can get through pretty much anything especially with the help of a couple of friends. I'm hoping Sarah, her parents and Lone-tree will embark on a new adventure in the near future

Good 2 book series

I enjoyed the characters and the twists and turns. Some of the descriptions of the battles between good and evil left me a little confused as to why particular strategies worked. Would like to see the characters of Sarah and Daniel's relationship evolve maybe a third book?
