Their was alo of exitment.Their was so many detailes.But i think she rushed to the end.In the biggining to middle she put so much information in the end she rushed to finish i think. It is about Preacher (a pastor in the Vietnam era, he was a medic in the war and was injured..sent home, he finds his calling in preaching to the masses) This was possibly quite the controversial book back in its day, as it does not say nice things about the preaching for money concept (Oral Roberts, the Bakers, Jerry Falwell and the like) A quick read and quite enjoyable. This book is eminently readable, and the insights into yet another big time “business” world are worth pondering. I really enjoyed this book, but it could get a little boring at times. Spellbinders is set around John Hawthorne High School, a fictional high school in Salem, Massachusetts, where magic is accepted as a fact. Refresh and try again. My daughter wanted me to read this and I'm glad I did. I probably already mentioned in a review of a different Harold Robbins book on this website that my parents had many of his books around the house when I was growing up. It goes without saying that I am glad for the sequels because I finished it saying "What?". To see what your friends thought of this book, [ [s], Horror, Weird Fiction, and Slasher Justice in ‘The Only Good Indians’.

The Salem witches drag Kim away from the party before the police arrive, and explain the secret history of the witch families of Salem. I felt like there was a lot of potential, but the story never really figured out the pacing. Kim and Foley, a seer, make contact with a ghost, who tells them to apologise to the Pillar. Another good read. We’d love your help. Kind of a scary book but one that gripped my attention. Back in Salem, Chad has resurrected his girlfriend and has Kim's friends trapped within one of their own spells. The problem was the repeatedness of his importance. Along the way, Kim realises that witches have been dying in unusual circumstances, where their powers backfired and killed them. The main characters of this young adult, fantasy story are Thea Harman, Eric Ross. The whole book read like a concept for a film, like the author knew they were writing a book for want of having it become a phenomenon.

So much of what was going on could have been made much more interesting by fleshing out the story itself. In the hard-hitting works of Harold Robbins, even the sacred isn't sacred. The whole book read like a concept for a film, like the author knew they were writing a book for want of having it become a phenomenon. Fresh off the success of her World Fantasy Award–winning novel Witchmark comes a standalone romantic fantasy from author C.L. Magical energy shoots out of the remains of the Pillar and Kim and Foley find themselves in a white space where a line of corpses are guarded by flying skeletons.

On the night of the party, they secretly guard her against all forms of magical attack. They're all over the airwaves-the televangelists-promising eternal salvation for an earthly price. Again, you get the feeling that it was written specifically to become a movie but the storytelling aspects were so flat that I couldn't imagine the story while reading. Kinda reminded me of ParaNorma. Certain families can work certain kinds of magic. The premise certainly seemed interesting enough, but sadly it just wasn't all that well written. It was difficult to remember all the characters, but all in all I don't regret reading it. Não será dos melhores de Robbins, mas é um bom thriller, desta vez focando os bastidores da mediatização da religião nos EUA nos anos 70, fenómeno a que ainda hoje assistimos na Europa, por vezes de modo mais discreto...outros tempos, as mesma motivações, contudo.
