CSFF Blog Tour: Shade by John B. Olson

Not that anyone wants to hear this, but of course I'm still behind from my move throwing my entire life out of whack, therefore, I do not have a review for you, but plenty of info to make your mouth water for this book...

First off, this week is the Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Blog Tour for Shade written by John B. Olson, published by B&H. Ok, one, it's B&H therefore it's automatically a winner. *grin*

“You will not fear the terror of the night.” —Psalm 91
A monstrous waking nightmare is pursuing graduate student Hailey
Maniates across San Francisco to Golden Gate Park where she is
rescued by a towering homeless man. She seems able to read her
rescuer’s mind, but is it just a delusion? Doctors diagnose her as a
paranoid schizophrenic and attempt to prescribe away her alleged
hallucinations. But too many questions remain around Hailey and the
man who saved her. He appears to suffer from her same mental
condition and is convinced that some type of Gypsy vampire is trying
to kill them both.
Against reason, Hailey finds herself more and more attracted to this
strange man. But what if he is a fantasy? What if he is the monster?

The best review that I have seen comes from The Christian Manifesto and it definitely makes me eager to read it sooner rather than later.

Grad student Hailey Maniates is working late one night when someone or something attacks her. After barely escaping from her lab, she is rescued by a strange homeless man who vanishes into the night. Soon Hailey reunites with her rescuer and suddenly finds herself in the middle of a deadly game against an unimaginable evil. This story is fun and captivating, supported by strong characters and smart writing. Shade is a classic good vs. evil tale that is told in a fresh new way that will resonate with readers long after the end. [more...]
