and I needn't have bothered!
For the first 20% of the book nothing happened - except Ben bemoaning the fact that he was pathetic (which
he was!). I thought he must have some dreadful deformity, but it turned out he used to stammer a lot, but was o.k.
now. Then there was Maddie's father telling him "Don't put yourself down" and "God will look after you" over and over
again. I should have stopped reading then.
Eventually Ben and Maddie get taken to the Cult farm where they hope to find Ben's father. The Cult only had 6
members and "Father" Ebb. Ebb was insane and took sadistic pleasure in torturing people with the excuse that he
was "driving out Satan". There was a lot of graphic and gruesome torture which the pathetic Cult members went along
with - half because they were terrified of Ebb and the others because they were almost as mad as him.
There was a lot of repetition with Ebb having conversations with his long dead and hated mother, and him asking the
members about Satan, etc. and them all replying in turn "yes, Father .." At this point I skim-read to the end of the book
as I just wanted to learn how Ben and Maddie managed to escape. I don't mind a bit of violence in books but I thought
this was just OTT. At least it was free when I got it.
So in the story we meet Ben, who is asked for help by his father Geoff after being kidnapped by a dangerous cult and finding himself close to death. Ben is told not to ring the police because everyone one will die. Ben and his friend Maddie track down one of the cult members. Their only option to rescue George is to join the cult!
But the Sons and Daughters of Salvation are a group of unhinged, brainwashed people living under the spell of evil psychopath, Edward Ebb. When Ben and Maddie are initiated into the group, they pass into a world where only two choices exist: compliance or death. The odds are impossibly stacked against them. The question is, what the gruesome secret locked away in the Revelation Room?
I was gripped from the start to the very last page. I must admit I have a thing about stories with a church theme.This story is dark and warped with some added dark humor absolutely perfect if I do say so myself.
I love the fact that there isn't to many characters and there is plenty of character background. So we get to know the characters well and I am looking forward to reading more in the series. By the way Ed the cult leader is certainly one disturbing character.
If your looking for something dark and twisted this is the book for you, which I highly recommend giving it 4 stars.
The plot surrounds a religious cult, but unlike the more famous ones, this book is set in the UK, and it so refreshing to see this. Ben Whittle's dad is a private investigator, who goes missing while on a job trying to locate a client's daughter. She's become involved with the aforementioned cult.
Ben sets out to try and find him, along with his 'friend' Maddy. This is a love story in the making, and the author does a great job of teasing us. I can't wait to see if the hero gets the girl of his dreams.
Unfortunately, they both become victims of the cult themselves. The leader of it, Eb, is probably one of the most hateful baddies I've ever read. He's sick, sadistic, and quite frankly, as nutty as a fruitcake. I hated him from the first line of his opening scene. I mean really, really, despised him. And it sorta degenerated from there. The influence this monster had over the group actually scared me.
I won't go any deeper into the story than that, except to say it is absolutely brilliant. The characters are real, very well developed, and you will love or hate them. The pacing is perfect, with no slowdown at all. This will grip you from the first page and have you screaming for more at the last.
A rock solid five stars!
