Children of Paradise
One day an incident happens to changes Trina and her mother's lives forever. Trina is attacked by the community's gorilla named Adam. She was originally thought dead until she was brought back to life. Things don't get better for Trina. In fact all the extra attention makes Trina nervous. Then there is her mother, Joyce. She turned the "Preacher"s advances down and her life is awful. Trina and Joyce will escape with the one person they never expected help from...Adam.
If you are looking for a change from the normal world of vampires, zombies, werewolves, and other paranormal creatures then you need to check this book out. There is nothing scarier then a cult. As far as I am aware I have not met a vampire or werewolf but I know cults exist and therefore they are filled with mystery, evil, deceit, and tons of people put their faith in one person. Kind of like what our government could become. A Nazi communist government where we will all follow one person and be told how to act and what to do. I don't know about you but the thought of this is really scary.
The "Preacher" is not a in your face type of guy but everything he does, he does with a purpose. He is a monster. For me the one that really was the star of this book is Adam. He felt real, almost like a person with a thinking brain then just a gorilla. The pacing for this book is not a lot of action like I normally enjoy but what it lacked there it did make up for in the characters and the story.
