Bizarre Encounter Initiates Extreme Spiritual Battle

Dylan Foster’s carefully constructed, orderly world begins to fray, thread by thread, the day the eyes of hell turn upon her. After a chance encounter with a creepy, sickly looking stranger, her days become punctuated with disturbing, inexplicable events. Desperate for answers, Dylan seeks not only to extricate herself from the nightmare, but to separate the spiritual from the earthly, friend from foe, angel from devil, good from evil. She’s smack in the eye of the battle with only God-issued spiritual armor and her own wits to protect her.

I saw the first fly alight on the edge of my plate during supper. This was no ordinary fly. It was huge. The size of a small Volkswagen. I could have painted daisies on it and sold rides to small children.

Hotter than the eyes of hell...

School is back in session, but for psychology professor Dylan Foster, the promise of a new semester is dying in the heat of the late Texas summer. First, there is the bizarre encounter with a ghastly pale stranger. Then her mother’s engagement ring turns up—the same ring that was buried with her mother two years before.

Soon, Dylan’s carefully ordered world is unraveling, one thread at a time. A former patient accuses her of impropriety, putting her career in jeopardy. A suicide plunges her deeper into shadow. Relationships with colleagues start to crumble. And then there are those flies in her house...

Dylan Foster is about to get a crash course in spiritual warfare—and a glimpse of her own small but significant role in a vast eternal conflict. But when the dust settles, will anything be left of her life as she knows it?

Story Behind the Book

The reality of spiritual warfare has long fascinated Melanie Wells. A practicing private counselor, she is energized by pondering the significance of seemingly mundane events, the importance of individual faithfulness, and the connection between the spiritual realm and the empirical world. She emphasizes these themes in her book, where the first scene came to her in a dream.

About the Author:

Melanie Wells has been a private practice counselor since 1992. She is the founder and director of LifeWorks, a community of Christian therapists in Dallas , Texas . Her graduate degrees in counseling psychology and Biblical studies were earned at Our Lady of the Lake University , and Dallas Theological Seminary, respectively.

From AudioFile:

In this spiritual thriller, Dylan Foster, Texas psychology professor, grapples with the unknown when she encounters a pale, scarred man. When her mother's engagement ring, buried with her two years before, mysteriously reappears, Dylan begins a spiritual wrestling match she's unprepared for, but she quickly learns the rules. Tari Riggs's youthful, even delivery enhances Dylan's wry humor and gives a light tone to a serious subject. Riggs portrays biblical ideas without preaching by narrating them as integral to the plot. A years-old mystery, a mysterious suite in the Vendome, two inexplicable suicides, demon mischief, and spiritual warfare bring this fast-paced thriller to a satisfying conclusion.
