Evil Stalks the Night by Kathryn Meyer Griffith

. Thursday, July 12, 2012

Just finished reading Evil Stalks the Night the revised author's edition by Kathryn Meyer Griffith and loved it.

From the first paragraph Griffith sets a dark, spooky mood that carries throughout the entire book until the last page that reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe's stories. Evil Stalks the Night is a tale of monsters under the bed being real and nightmares coming to life in the woods out behind Sarah's, the heroine's, house.

The tale begins in the summer of 1960 when children begin disappearing and showing up dead in the nearby woods. Skip to years later and Sarah is an adult with a child of her own. All of her family is dead save her one brother and she lives far away from the little town where she lost everyone she loved.

She's a famous psychic who's cop husband has left her for another woman and is at crises point looking for a safe place to land in these hard times. Her only option is her grandmother's house back in the town were nightmares came true in the forest.

When she arrives back home the one bright spot is police detective Ben, who she is greatly attracted to if a little skittish of starting a new relationship. But even if Sarah doesn't want to start a relationship with another cop, she needs Ben's help as she fights the evil that awakens upon her return.

Now, I'm more of a classic romance sorta grrl but this story grabbed my attention and kept me emotionally invested and completely entertained without any slow or boring points. I definitely recommend this read to anyone who likes a scary story with a happily ever after ending.

Love, light, and laughter!
