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.
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!
