For the second time reading this book, I noticed many great scenes that were added, and a lot of description. Mr. Mitchell is wondrous when it comes to showing rather than telling! The characters were well portrayed, despite needing a little more of Josalyn.

Now for the horror part. I was reading it until I finished at 12:45 a.m. The suspense is nail biting, and you can't help but read further. Very frequently I imagined it so vividly that I thought I was hearing scratching at my window.

Though there is quite a bit of gore, there are no inappropriate scenes or references. The book is very good in that regard. Realms chose well in publishing this book.

When a new author comes around, I sometimes have my doubts. Uh-oh! Is this person just one who wants to say he wrote a novel, or can he actually tell a story? All these thoughts blurred my mind concerning Greg Mitchell. But then I saw something that drew me to this story. Authors like Eric Wilson, Alton Gansky, and Mike Dellosso were lining up to praise the work of "The Strange Man." Well, I may not be an author, but let me get in line too! This was superb!

Welcome to Greensboro, home of Dras Weldon, who doesn't care about much, except his comic books and horror movies. He has a brother named Jeff, who is a Pastor, and who he never took very seriously. That is, until a stranger comes strolling into town and starts taking interest in his best friend, Rosalyn. And he isn't just a stranger, he's a strange man, and he's brought the power of Hell with him. After the disappearance of one girl, this strange man is looking for targets. Rosalyn happens to be it. And once Dras is confronted with the truth, he moves into action, and embraces a faith he thought worked only on Sunday mornings. Get ready for a battle, and get ready for something you aren't prepared for!

Frank Peretti is a legend, and I'm convinced that Greg Mitchell isn't all that far behind him. This took me less than a day to read, and I'm already starving for more! This was outstanding, and Greg Mitchell has impressed me! If there are authors out there who can do it better, then they'd better be ready to fire on all four cylinders to compare with Greg Mitchell's passion and tenacity. Oh, he also has a great sense of humor! I am more than ready to embrace what Greg Mitchell has to offer in the future. The question is, am I prepared?

Format: Paperback
This book reminds me of Frank Peretti's first couple of books, This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness. Spiritual warfare, demons, good and bad battling for the souls of men.

It is a little more creepy than Peretti's books, but in a good way. In this book, the demons actually appear to people and attack and chase them. The story is both suspenseful and humorous. The main character is a twenty-two year old young man who is nothing more than a drunk and an immature guy who still collects comic books and action figures. He becomes the central figure in the battle for his town.

I liked the author's writing style. He wrote very likable and believable characters into his story, and I was caught up quickly in their stories and battles. This was one of those books that once I started, I did not want to put it down.

Two complaints I have: The first is the ending - pretty abrupt, and leaves a lot hanging, though this is the first book in a trilogy, The Coming Evil, so I assume everything will be resolved in the next two books, so that is a mild complaint.

The big thing I had an issue with was theology. The main character, Dras, became a Christian at the age of nine. As an adult, he is a drunk, a lazy bum, and and more, yet is supposedly a Christian because of a conversion at the age of nine. I won't go into that a lot, but I do believe that theology does not line up with the Bible, and hope it isn't as blatant in the next two books. Other than that, I did thoroughly enjoy the book and recommend it, especially for those who enjoy Peretti's books.

Format: Paperback
The Strange Man is the first book in The Coming Evil Trilogy and also the first book I've read by Greg Mitchell, but it won't be the last! While it wasn't as scary as I had anticipated (I had heard it referred to as "Christian horror") there were a few suspenseful scenes - and that made me enjoy this book all the more!

I found Dras Weldon to be funny/silly - he was like a grown-up kid in the beginning of The Strange Man. I liked seeing how his character grew and in the end there was a shocker! One character I really liked was Dras's brother, Jeff. He was also the pastor of The Good Church of the Faithful (kind of a funny name for a church, I think).

I'd say Spiritual Battle was a major part of The Strange Man and I liked that! It was interesting to read about "The Bogeyman" and how powerful God's Word is - and important!

The Strange Man is an interesting read that I really enjoyed! The ending leaves me looking forward to reading the second book in Greg Mitchell's The Coming Evil Trilogy, Enemies of the Cross. I recommend The Strange Man if you enjoy a good novel with spiritual elements and some scary scenes.
