With their marriage in shambles after the devastating loss of their son, Kevin and Amy Kessecker take a trip to a private island to spend a long weekend with friends to salvage their relationship. Unbeknownst to them, something has followed. Soon, the group of friends find themselves pitted against an unstoppable killer with impossible abilities. It will take everything they have to survive the night. Miles from nowhere. No place to hide. Hunted by a deranged killer. Don't call the cops; they will never make it in time. Leap of Faith is a sequel to the Amazon #1 bestseller "Lamb of God."
Plot/Idea: Leap of Faith starts off with a bang—and a terrifying death in the opening pages—and never lets up. The action is constant, but conveyed in a natural way that forges suspense at every turn.
Prose: The prose is concise, polished, and chilling in all the right places, with perfectly crafted dialogue and crisp descriptions that set the scene while leaving readers reeling with vivid imagery.
Originality: The storyline has familiar elements, but the delivery of the novel’s horror scenes and tension buildup is startlingly original, making Leap of Faith easily stand out.
Character/Execution: The cast is large, but the authors render each character in arresting detail. The main protagonists are relatable, with powerful emotions that drive their actions throughout the story, and the supporting characters are equally memorable.
