By Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Twenty years ago psychic Sarah Summers fled from the evil that lurked in the woods behind her childhood home after it killed most of her family, but a nasty divorce and financial hardships forced her back when nothing else could have. With her son, Jeremy, she returns to her grandmother's dilapidated house and tries to begin a new life. She meets a police detective, Ben, who falls for her, and she prays her fresh visions of bloodshed and death deep among the dark trees are not true. Then the murders begin again and Sarah is hurtled back into the familiar nightmare that has haunted her her whole life. The evil in the woods is awake again...and this time it wants her last remaining brother, Jim; her son...and her. With Ben and Jim's help can she defeat it this time...and live?
Between The Pages of this story is a fast-paced thriller that basically scared the wits out of me. I felt like I was experiencing the terror right along with Sarah. This was a well-rounded story told in the POV of Sarah, but I thought it added depth by bringing in a few other POV’s, including the Evil which was a surprising twist. There’s just something about Ms. Griffith’s covers that hook me and usually the first paragraph or two definitely draw me in. Kudos to Ms. Griffith for another story well done! I definitely recommend this book to all horror/suspense/thriller fans looking for a gripping, edge of your seat, and down right creepy read!
