While the cover looks more like a Stephen King novel, I found it to be a refreshing change from some of the books I have read lately. No one was held captive, tortured and killed.
"Aaron Starks survived a near death experience when he was stabbed by an unknown assailant. All of his college roommates were suspects. However, investigators could turn up nothing to catch the attempted murderer.
Fifteen years later, Aaron is all grown up with a family. Things are going great until he starts experiencing strange blackouts and other paranormal visions. During the blackouts he still interacts with others, but he cannot remember anything he said or did. Doctors are unable to provide an answer. It is not until Aaron has an encounter with Ju'van, a local shaman, that he realizes what he needs to do. He is sent on a journey to meet up with all his old roommates to discover the truth on what really happened the night he was stabbed in the back."
The story shares an interesting take on mortality and had some interesting symbolism. It was very suspenseful and held my interest. A quick read with a surprise twist at the end.
This is actually a book I very well may go back and read again. After the "Oh....o.k.." ending, I want to reread it with that in mind.
(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
