Raven’s Peak by Lincoln Cole is a supernatural thriller that quickens your heartbeat and doesn’t stop building suspense until the final page. I was riveted by this book, because although these situations are typically seen as myth or religious “issues”, they were written so real and so raw that I felt this could happen in any town. Not only did that freak me out beyond belief, but it also entranced me so that I had to read to the very end.
When people in the small town of Raven’s Peak start to act peculiar, they call Abigail to help figure out what is going on. Abigail knows about supernatural things, and the townspeople trust her to help them as much as she can. She is a member of an Order that summons demons out of bodies, whether that be neighbors, friends, or strangers, and the people of Raven’s Peak need her to do her magic.
Haatim is a depressed young man who has just recently dropped out of college after some tragedies occurred in his life. He has been hired to follow Abigail because someone thinks she is going to murder them. Haatim has lost his faith in God after the death of his sister from cancer, and when Abigail and Haatim meet they form an interesting friendship. The bond that they acquire is valuable for both of them. The girl who has supernatural powers and can search out demons, and the boy who has no faith in anything in the world team up to sort out the issues in the small town.
This is definitely one of the more intricate yet simple supernatural books that I have read. It has believable characters, with real problems, but also holds mysterious secrets with in the pages. Not only does this book have a beautiful cover, but the story is captivating. I felt so entangled in the lives of these people, and watching what they go through was almost personal. I had a lot of fun reading this, I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
