DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
She devoted her life to studying demons. She never knew one of them was studying her.
As a child, Kayla’s sister tried to scare her by showing her a horror movie about demons. Instead, it grew into a fascination, and then a career. Kayla now travels around the globe studying demonology and possession beliefs from every culture imaginable. Though enriching, her career has convinced her beyond a shadow of a doubt that demons aren’t real. Until she meets Elisa Watkins.
Elisa’s possession is like nothing Kayla has ever seen before…and she’s seen everything. Kayla tries to believe that Elisa is simply faking for attention, a bid for her fifteen minutes of fame, but Kayla’s convictions start to waver the more time she spends in Elisa’s presence. Elisa knows things about Kayla’s past that she couldn’t possibly be able to know. And then there’s that haunting violin song…
Shaken to her core, Kayla is desperate to find answers. But this demon, if he is real, might not be the deadliest threat that Kayla is facing...
This novel was unique and unlike anything else I've read before. It appealed to everyone's natural fascination with subjects like possession and demonology and presented it in a really interesting way. It's clear the author is very knowledgeable and has done their research. There was enough action and suspense to keep me turning the pages and eager to see what happened next. I would highly recommend this book and encourage anyone looking for something new to read to pick it up!
If you’re looking for a novel that will pull you into its world and not let you go, then this is the book for you. I could not put it down and even started dreaming about it. Just when I thought I knew how Kayla’s story would end, I was completely shocked and was shown just how wrong I was. I swear I read the last few chapters with my jaw permanently down. It’s smart, romantic, engaging, witty, and surprising. The best combination in my opinion.
