In an excellent new offering from author Michael Pang, In the Eyes of Madness: Declan Peters Chronicles Book One, readers will be treated to a highly original book that will keep them obsessively turning the pages from the very first words all the way through to the last. Follow the story of protagonist Declan Peters, as he struggles with the aftermath of his psychotic mother's actions. Determined as an adult to forge a relationship with his mom again, he takes a job at the institution where she lives, hopeful that he will learn more about the woman who brought him into the world. But what he finds isn't what he expected. In fact, what he finds leads him to question almost everything he has ever known, and throws him into a world of demonic possession and beings with tendencies he could never have imagined. Will Declan ever get what he came for? Will he even survive? You'll need to read the book to find out!
I very much enjoyed In the Eyes of Madness: Declan Peters Chronicles Book One. This book is full of twists and turns that even I, a prolific reader, didn't expect, and that is saying quite a lot. Author Michael Pang has done a fantastic job in creating characters, especially Declan, that his readers will relate to, connect with and care about. If that isn't a hallmark of a great author, I'm not sure what is. Any reader, young adult or not, that loves a unique book of paranormal fiction, or just an interesting work of fiction in general, should read this book. I highly recommend In the Eyes of Madness: Declan Peters Chronicles Book One, and I look forward to reading the next book in this very promising series by author Michael Pang, as soon as I possibly can.
Fast-paced action, the struggle to grow up under difficult circumstances, and the need to understand an incomprehensible truth drive this exciting paranormal story that keeps you anxiously turning the pages. Although there is a strong Christian focus, and what exorcism story doesn't have one, the basic premise of good versus evil crosses all lines and demands the commitment of like-minded persons for the benefit of all. In the Eyes of Madness: Declan Peters Chronicles Book 1 by Michael Pang is a tremendously interesting story with wonderful depth that leaves you breathless. The concept is great, the pace is right, and the story is strong and compelling. I look forward to the next volume(s)!

I rather enjoyed the meat of this story. When I first started reading, I found it to be a little dry. After I got further into the book, it became a roller coaster of a read that swept me away. There are Christian themes to the story, above and beyond what might be found in the typical paranormal thrillers I enjoy, which are more along the lines of the supernatural. You don't get bludgeoned with it though, and the author does a good job of portraying both sides of belief. I feel for Declan, trapped as he is with people trying to push their beliefs onto him. I think that's part of what made him one of my favourite characters.
I feel the author also did a good job portraying the fear and frustration of dealing with family members who have some sort of behavioural issue. That can be very scary, when a loved one's behaviour becomes erratic, and possibly violent. It can be hard to reconcile what you remember of how a person used to be with the totally different person they've become. The story is well worth reading. If you are a fan of the supernatural, or movies like The Exorcist, be sure to check out Michael Pang's In the Eyes of Madness! I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for the next one, and I'm looking forward to seeing Pang grow as a writer. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
