The Cult of Eden by Bill Halpin – Review | Blog Tour

A spine-chilling novel.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

Newlywed Will Battese finds himself homesick and overwhelmed after following his ambitious wife, Shannon, to New York City. When a surprise pregnancy shreds their already meager budget, Will drops out of college and settles for work at a low-end diner. There, a small act of kindness draws the attention of Victor Degas, a man with an unsettling presence and deformed eyes.

Unbeknownst to Will, Degas belongs to an ancient, sophisticated cult known as the Edens and believes Will to be the key to gaining otherworldly power. As the sun sets on Good Friday, Degas orchestrates a home invasion in which Will and his baby boy, Gideon, are kidnapped, leaving Shannon to join forces with an unreliable agent from the Roman Catholic Church. While Will struggles to save other innocents from the Eden parish below the city, Shannon discovers that the cult plans to use her family for an unimaginable demonic ritual, and that the Vatican may let it happen. With no one to trust but themselves, Shannon and Will must fight not only to survive, but to keep their humanity intact. THE CULT OF EDEN is the first volume in The Unrisen saga.

Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie – Review

A perfect read for October.

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

Suffer the Children presents a terrifying tale of apocalyptic fiction, as readers are introduced to Herod’s Syndrome, a devastating illness that suddenly and swiftly kills all young children across the globe.

Soon, they return from the grave… and ask for something unimaginable. Without that, they remain listless, vacant eyes staring at their parents. As soon as the children receive it, they become themselves again… But only for a short while.

As that commodity becomes scarce, the inevitable question for parents everywhere becomes: How far would you go to bring your child back?

Summary paraphrased from Goodreads.
