Review of Something Stirs
Something Stirs by Thomas Smith is a novel that follows fiction writer Ben Chalmers and his family as they move into a new house in the community of Pike’s Crossing. As Ben soon learns, mysterious happenings are afoot. Published by Taberah Press, this book will appeal to anyone interested in reading Christian horror, suspense, or thrillers.
Something Stirs will keep you turning, one page after the next, losing track of time and not caring. Keep in mind that because of the intense nature, you might not want to read this alone on a dark night.
Smith does a good job of developing his theme, and I liked the way how he addresses readers in an afterword. His characters are dynamic, which makes them believable. Also, the plot elements flow naturally.
Some of the characters struggled with the loss of a loved one. As my father is terminally ill, I readily identified with them. If you're looking for a suspenseful, fast-paced read, check out Something Stirs. *
And intense read, I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5. Just keep in mind, that if you don't like to read suspenseful/thrilling/scary stories, this may not be for you.
*Please note that I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review. However, I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
