CSFF Blog Tour – “Beckon”

This month, the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy blog tour is reviewing Beckon by Tom Pawlik.

Due to end-of-the-year school craziness, I didn’t have time to actually read the book.  However, in the spirit of the blog tour, here’s some information:

Some things weren’t meant to be discovered. Three people are each drawn to the small town of Beckon, Wyoming. A young anthropologist researches a Native American legend and makes a terrifying discovery. An ex-cop investigating her cousin’s disappearance finds herself in grave peril. And an aging businessman is lured by the promise of a miracle. One by one they discover the town’s ghastly secret. The only question is . . . will any of them make it out alive? (From Amazon.com)

Sounds like a Christian horror in the bent of Mike Dellosso, Frank Peretti, or Ted Dekker.  However, don’t take my word for it–especially since I’ve only seen the book cover!
