Walker's Vale

In his debut novel, John J. Zelenski combines the elements of such seasoned suspense writers like Stephen King, Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti to unleash upon his readers a novel in which good faces off against evil in the spiritual realm. This is why these types of books and movies linger in our minds because deep inside us all we know that this exists but we try and pretend that it doesn't for our sakes.

Walker's Vale is the novel that combines a small family that moves to Walker's Vale, Pennsylvania looking for a fresh start and a slower pace at life, but they received more than they ever bargained for. James Cooper is looking to begin a new life and having more time for his autistic daughter, Liza while they fix up the home they just built down the road from the local church. They just didn't expect to find all kinds of unexplained things happening in their home before they truly got settled from the strange taped designs that appear on Liza's bedroom walls to the creepy Pastor that shows up unannounced with a warning for the family. Only then do the strange circumstances escalate that pits man's old adversary, pure evil against the very holiness of God and all for the battle of one little girl.

Picture all the elements you need to make this one work, small uninhabited home with an evil past, a meddling pastor, and the dark woods in a small town, sets the stage for a showdown in the heavenly realms that leads to definite hauntings in the Cooper household from Liza's glowing doll she doesn't want to leave behind, to things lying buried in the dark woods at the edge of the property. This is truly a spiritual warfare novel that will definitely leave you with a lasting impression. Warning: You may want to read this before dark or at least with the light on and someone with you.

I received Walker's Vale by John J. Zelenski compliments of the author for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside for a free copy of this novel and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. This is the second book by this author with The Journal of Ezekiel Walker written as a prequel to the pastor we meet in this novel. We get the back story in that one of what possess the pastor's passion to help the Cooper family even though they don't see it as that at first. I venture to say I read this one before the Journal of Ezekiel Walker and wish I would have read them in that order instead. My only complaint if you could call it that would be I wish it was so much longer. At 134 pages, I wanted triple that for this novel and hope, fingers crossed, that we will see another one soon by this author. I would rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and literally inhaled it in one dark night. Won't make that mistake again!
