Nephilim Genesis of Evil by Renee Pawlish
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Does Evil actually exist in our Universe? Rory Callahan believes it does, and he has both recent personal experience plus research to prove it. Struck by a New York City taxi just moments after seeing and hearing a sentient black fog hovering above traffic, the journalist researches other instances of a similar manifestation, and discovers a 19th bizarre event in a small Colorado mining town. Rory doesn’t know why he was targeted-but clearly, since the fog or mist entity addressed him, and then he was struck and injured-it does “know” him.
As he discovers in the history of little Taylor’s Crossing, Colorado, some hundred years ago a similar feature was spotted there-some townsfolk moved away, and survived; the rest of the townspeople completely disappeared. Now rebuilt as a tourist attraction venture, Rory takes up residence there hoping to discover the truth, whatever it may be!
This is a fascinating Supernatural novel, which will appeal to many types of readers with its magnetic plotting and easily empathetic characters. The settings are very well-described, and the suspense is taut, and escalated carefully to hook the reader and keep her attention riveted.
