Closet - Giveaway

It seemed to be an innocent looking book that John picked up from the local bookstore, but late that night, as he read it in the secret of his closet, a creature emerged. Then with arms extended strangled the life out of him, leaving behind Megan and their baby Derek. But as Megan was leaving the house, two other forms attempted to kill her as well.

In the suspense thriller novel, Closet by Eric John Swanson, the readers are immediately taken into the innocent aspects of dabbling in what appears to be nothing more than a simple self help book intending to help the reader get their life back on track. What happens however is a door is opened into another dimension and with that the desire to capture the the baby who escaped so long ago along with anyone else they can seek to get their hands on.

This is an exceptional book that delves into the innocent things believers at times will pick up and attempt to use to help themselves get their lives moving in the direction they desire, instead of following in the path God wants for them. In this case, Derek is now grown with a wife and son of his own. Even though he has graduated from seminary quite awhile now, he can't seem to secure a job anywhere working for God. Not to mention that he has a son that has a severe learning disability, Derek finds himself constantly at odds with God wondering just when he is going to be able to support his family and questions his faith.

This is when evil strikes in the form of an old woman Derek meets on the sidewalk just outside his home who gives him look into his current future. When he grows suspicious of her visions, she vanishes leaving behind a self help book that will take him places he never expected to go.

I received this book compliments of Pump Up Your Book Tours and Eric John Swanson for my honest review. It got difficult to follow the story when Derek slips into the other dimension but if you stick to it, you learn some really valuable insight into the faith of the believer and what God's purpose is for us in life no matter how we view it. For those that love a bit of suspense and thrill to their reading, then this is the book for you! I personally rate this a 5 out of 5 stars because of the lessons it teaches throughout the book.
