From the minds of multi-million selling suspense authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker comes House, an epic supernatural thriller that gives a new meaning to the phrase "haunted house". In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods. They seek refuge in an old house that's been vacated for years, or so they think.
They soon discover that others are dwelling in the lower level of the house, and they don't take kindly to visitors. With danger present in the house, they try to leave, but the house won't let them. Worse, they soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house. As they huddle around an old fireplace, a tin can falls through the chimney. Scrawled on its side is a message from the killer: He claims to have killed God and now demands more dead bodies. The characters come to realize that the house, while real, mirrors their own heart and soul, and unless each can defeat the evil within, the evil in the house will surely claim them. House is a modern tale that will have readers searching their own spiritual pulse long after they reach the last page.
- Interesting plot...but left me with a creepy feeling!!!
Interesting plot but It definitely didn't seem like a christian novel!!!! It had some very disturbing themes in it and seemed more like a horror novel!!!! If I remember correctly there were some mild cuss words and references to sex as well!!!! I struggled to find the real connection to God or Jesus...like in This present darkness or piercing the darkness....
I think this book should have a warning on it the way I have seen on a couple of other fiction books you have.
- A Mystery With A Twist
It took me a while to get use to the narrator's voice, but the storyline drew me in. I enjoy Peretti's writing, his imagination is entertaining.
- A Homerun for Peretti
“It has been a while since Peretti has published adult fiction, as he has been focusing on youth and nonfiction. Together, he and Dekker hit another grand slam. This is perhaps truest to the thriller genre out of Peretti's previous novels and it definitely delivers on nail biting suspense. The narrator does a fantastic job as well. Living up to his legacy, Dekker's trademark redemptive style shines through. I really enjoyed the way they were able to cleverly weave an emphasis on marriage fidelity and commitment, in an age when that is almost completely lost in popular authors. So here's both thumbs up for the dynamic duo. ”
