What would you do if all of a sudden you start to see children no one else can see?... Jake finds out his nephew has been taken by a serial killer. Are the children only he can see there to help him save his nephew?
It may not be for everyone, as it focuses on abortion and murder. As for me, it had me wondering. Definitely a page turner.
The characters are well written and draw you into their state of mind easily. The only hard part about the entire book was trying to decipher the dialogue of the youngest children. The author spelled it as the child would have actually said the words. The characters were flawed in a realistic way. I have to say that the only downfall to the book that I could find was that the ending seemed a little rushed. It was more like a quick tying up of loose ends rather than anything. However, the conclusion of the book was very much worth the ride to it.
This is one of those quick-to-read books that takes you on a wild ride through a bunch of twists and turns only to leave you with a good feeling toward the end. Without spoiling the entire book, I will simply say that I would have given it 3.5 stars because it was a good story that didn't drag things out or try to make itself seem larger than it truly was. Although I don't think it's one that I'll read over and over again, I definitely enjoyed it while I had it. If you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary to spend some time with, this is definitely the book to turn to!
It wasn't until the end of the book that I realized I had read my very first Christian Mystery! All I can say that this book make me feel so good and that I so identified with the main character, although I am a female. I would have lived his story, the way he did, if I found myself in a similar situation! I am obviously still awestruck by the twist and turns,which I never expected. Even though the reader catches on to what the children are about, you can't really guess the conclusion.
In closing, I highly recommend this book to any mystery fan! I now have to check out this author's other book. This one should definitely make the New York Times Bestseller list. I am surprised it only has 222 reviews, so far.
I could not really relate to Jenna's character. She was so sensitive that I was reminded of the character in Bedazzled when he wished to be the most sensitive man alive, or something of that sort. I wondered how she could walk down the street without falling apart. Thankfully, she was more of a minor character within the story.
I'm a little OCD about spelling, and normally I hate to read misspelled after misspelled words, but not in this case. The only places I noticed any words misspelled were during the toddler speak, and there was a clear purpose for that. It would have been unbelievable for toddlers to speak as an adult would. I'm guessing this is where some have a problem with misspelled words.
My problem with the story was the dialogue. I almost quit reading the story early on because it was so plain and pretty flat throughout the story, almost to the point of being boring. For that reason only I just couldn't rate it above a 3. If I had to do it over again, I would still read it.
Jake Paris is a normal, everyday guy until Abigail visits him. Abigail is a very old woman who seems consumed with her crazy message and gift of a white rose. The message is, “Be nice to the children.” He starts seeing little children everywhere, and apparently, he’s the only one who does. Is he as nutty as the old lady? What is going on? Then, Jake’s sister Holly finds out her little boy is being held by a serial killer. Jake and his friend Dan try to help her deal with it. Everything is further complicated by Holly’s drug habit, messages to her from the killer, and Jake’s recurring visions of little children.
The plot thickens as Holly is in contact with the serial killer, Jake is trying to figure out his own private mystery, and all the time, the fate of the little boy is uncertain. I promise this is a nail biter with a very strong message. Kudos, Mr. Hileman!
