Some secrets should stay buried…
Samantha Carver thought she could leave the past behind. After moving to a sleepy town on the Oregon coast, she thought she would finally be free of the darkness that has been plaguing her since she was a child.
When a girl at Samantha’s new high school is brutally murdered, the police suspect her cousin and best friend, Terry, of committing the gruesome act. But Sam knows what her family, the teachers, and the police don’t.
She knows that Terry didn’t kill the girl.
Because a demon did.
Samantha’s dark secret has returned from the grave to stalk her. And it’s come back with a vengeance.
Demon Resurrection is the first novel in the Samantha Carver Saga, and a refreshing twist on the zombie apocalypse genre. Unfortunately, I can’t really say more on that refreshing twist without giving away spoilers and I definately don’t want to do that! There was a lot of suspense in this story, with bits and pieces of information given out as the story progresses. At the beginning, Samantha’s past was a little murky with more questions than answers that explained her and how she came to be where she was. Those questions were by and large answered by the end, and the suspense in getting there was fun, There were a lot of unexpected little twists right to the end. And even though I guessed at the cliffhanger end, getting there was still enjoyable. It will be interesting how the next book in the series takes the cliffhanger and runs with it. This is a story with promise!
