A Review: The Oath

There is a monster hiding out in the small city of Hyde River. It is not as quiet and stealthy as it once was. It is killing more and more people, and when it kills Steve's brother, he is determined to find out just exactly what kind of creature it is and capture it. But the citizens of Hyde River do not take kindly to having their secrets exposed, and this monster is not merely a physical being. Will Steve be able to find his answers without being killed or succombing to the darkness in this town and in his heart?

I loved this book! It was the first book by Frank Peretti I have read besides the children's books,  Hangman's Curse and Nightmare Academy (great reads!) and House, co-authored with Ted Dekker. This story really made me think about sin and its deadliness. Peretti is able to talk about deep, spiritual things in an intriguing, thrilling, and suspenseful way. But be warned: this story is a thriller. It has twists and turns and a few graphic parts. It didn't give me nightmares or anything like that, but I would still suggest not to read it at mealtimes or bedtime. It wasn't dark, just suspensful. It was an awesome read, and I highly recommend it!
