Image Synopsis: When Gary’s girlfriend Joan vanishes, calls to her parents home yield only dead air. Her school records are gone. There is no longer any evidence that she even existed. Most disturbing of all is what Gary does find: a warning and a tantalizing clue, leading to a mysterious backward cult known as the Homesteders. Now Gary may be the next to disappear.

Now, I am a HUGE fan of horror. HUGE! I also totally love Bentley Little’s writing. Most of his books totally enthrall me by the end of the first chapter. This one took a bit longer.

I can’t really say that this book was horror. It was more of a mystery that involved a creepy cult. Having been a psych nurse for 20 years, and having worked closely with cult members in the past, most cults’ are creepy.

The characters are mostly realistic but not believable. How many college students are going to give up everything they have, including their lives, for a person they only  met a couple weeks ago?

So while it really took me awhile to totally get into the book, it was still for the most part a good read. You won’t find anything paranormal or supernatural, but you will get curious as to how it all ends.
