Synopsis from Amazon.com:
“David Ray killed eight students and then turned the gun on himself. He thought the shooting and suicide would fix his world. It didn’t. The massacre threw Tanner Khan and the other survivors into chaos.
Twenty years later, Tanner and his fellow classmates reluctantly agree to hold a reunion to lay the past to rest. Although they suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, they come back to their hometown and reunite in the defunct school building. Old flames are rekindled, fears are ignited, and their lives are about to explode in a whirlwind of memories, haunted by the spirit of David Ray.
Once they’re inside the school, they discover that a dark entity has joined them. It has come to collect a debt, long overdue, and someone has to pay. Will Tanner and his classmates overcome their fears, putting the pieces of their lives back together, or will they be consumed by their worst nightmare?”
Let me say right off, I liked this book, it kept me clicking the next button on my Kindle from beginning to end. The paranormal aspect was an interesting way to cover a difficult subject, school violence. I liked the characters, all of whom seemed real to me. The only issue I had with this book was towards the end it started taking more of a religious tone than I was comfortable with, I checked the page numbers to make sure I hadn’t been fooled into starting a book that then turned into Christian Lit halfway through, it didn’t. I have nothing against Christian Lit but it does have a habit of starting out strong and then turning off onto another road, often times leaving me feeling like I’d been tricked.
I’m looking forward to reading more books by Mr. Bennington. I would give this Kindle read a strong 4.5 stars out of 5.Book Review-Reunion by Jeff Bennington
