Rebecca Reviews ~ Invitation by Bill Myers, Frank E. Peretti, Angela Elwell Hunt, Alton Gansky + Goodreads Giveaway (20 Copies)

Published April 4th 2017 by Bethany House Publishers (first published June 1st 2015)

Four Bestselling Authors Team Up for Thrilling Supernatural Suspense 

Gathering four stories from four bestselling author friends, Invitation is the first collection in the ongoing Harbingers series. 

In "The Call" by Bill Myers, four strangers are drawn together to help a student at the mysterious Institute for Advanced Psychic Studies. His gifts are supposedly being honed to assist world leaders . . . but there are some very disturbing strings attached. Frank Peretti's "The Haunted" confronts a supernatural mystery, a case of murder, and an exploration into the darkness of the human heart, all centering around a mysterious house. 

In Angela Hunt's "The Sentinels," animals around the world are mysteriously dying. What could it mean? When the tragedy begins to touch Andi's dreams, she discovers a terrifying theory. "The Girl" by Alton Gansky is a gripping tale of a young barefoot girl found holding a scroll in the snowy Oregon mountains. She is sweet, innocent--apparently not of this world--and something wants to kill her.

Rebecca's Review
4 STARS!!! 
"But what if God has an enemy, and his time is running out? He could be feelin' the pressure, and be determined to destroy as much as he can in the short time he has left."

By definition, "harbingers" are heralds of things to come. Could the Almighty possibly use a once-priest-turned-atheist professor, a brilliant young professorial assistant, a cagey tattoo artist, and an over-sized athlete with a heart as big as his stature to deliver His message to all of creation? Together they seem to have formed an allegiance not all their own, as they inexplicably see and experience the supernatural in various forms, none of which are pleasant.

Four very talented authors have joined talents to write what is in their own words, " like a TV series. . . . Instead of the four of us writing one novella together . . there would be an overarching story line into which we'd plug our individual novellas, with each story written from our character's point of view."

And the result? A compilation of extraordinary, supernatural events introducing unforgettable characters who find themselves inserted into a game of survival that is nearly impossible to play. And as the great Sherlock Holmes once said, "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky have started something that I for one, hope that they finish. For what began as a story entirely outside of my comfort zone, gained momentum somewhere along the way, and I was grateful to have received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The above comments are entirely my own.

Rebecca is a graduate of Bryan College with a degree in Christian Education and is currently serving at the First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Gastonia, North Carolina as the Director of Children's Ministry. With nearly 28 years of experience in her field, she has had many opportunities to use her love of reading and writing in creative ways across the generations. A wife, mother of four "nearly" grown children, and grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren, Rebecca has been able to return to her love of reading and more recently reviewing, with a renewed passion for the "beauty of story".
