Finished It In Two Sittings

5 out of 5 stars

Well, I didn’t expect to finish this book in under 24 hours. I couldn’t put it down… I needed to know what was going to happen to Allison. Let me back up a second here. Allison is a… I guess a horror story. It’s a story about a woman who can hurt people (including breaking bones and worse) with her mind. She’s not sure how and she can’t really control it but it’s definitely a thing she can do.

The story starts with young Allison and the first time that we’re shown just how much power she has. It then morphs into a quick summary of what has happened to her over the last 35 years, settling in with 45 year old Allison. Little did I know, 45 year old Allison was just getting started.

The story flies by. I started it last night, and ended up listening to it on my lunch break today. I couldn’t wait to hear what was going to happen. I went into it assuming I knew where the story was going to go… but I didn’t. And I definitely didn’t see the ending coming.

I really enjoyed this one. It was the right length and had the right amount of detail in it to make it fun without bogging it down in details or over-explaining things.

This was not my first book by Sara Morsey and there’s a reason for that. She really helps move the story along and turns it from just a narration into a story. There were scenes where Allison was frantic and panicked and Morsey became that (without over-acting). She was a really great addition to this story. This was only my second book from Jeff Strand but it won’t be my last. I loved his storytelling and his ability to absolutly suck me in within a page or two.

Book Description:

Allison can break your bones with her mind, and she can’t control her power.

Now 45 years old, she’s spent her life trying to stay away from other people. But a random encounter with a couple on the street leaves her believing that she may have done something horrible. Something unforgivable.

Killer-for-hire Daxton and his girlfriend Maggie know the truth. Instead of easing Allison’s anguish, they come up with a cruel plan to take advantage of it. But with Allison’s abilities exposed, there may be a grisly body count very soon….

From its shocking opening to its sinister conclusion, Allison is Jeff Strand at his over-the-top best!
