Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Maia Peters knows more than she really cares to know about the paranormal, as the child of a famous husband and wife ghost hunting team, she has seen the paranormal up close and personal.  And she personally wants nothing to do with it.  She wants to make her own way in criminal justice, and forensic science and is paying her way through college to study those subjects.
A trip to an amusement park that is supposed to boast of paranormal activities, brings Maia the biggest surprise she has had in a long time.  She sees the spirit of a girl who she had helped observe and study the paranormal investigative techniques.  Maia does not know what is going on, but combining both her paranormal experience and her college studies experience she is determined to find out.
Delving deep into something that turns out to be much darker and more sinister that she imagined, Maia knows she has to rescue her friend, and to do it fast.
A fast paced moving book, you will not want to put this book down.  A Christian publisher with a story about the paranormal is not the norm in Christian fiction and the author is very assertive in pointing out that this book does not promote the paranormal. Nor do I promote the paranormal, I do believe, as the book pointed out, that ghosts are mentioned in the Bible, and while everything connected with paranormal activity, is not a demon it is influenced by demonic powers and activity.  That all being said  I enjoyed the story, it was a great story, wonderfully written and it was awesome to see the strong Christian in the story take a stand against the demonic forces at work.  A book worth reading! 347 pages $14.99 US 5 stars
