Night Terror By Jeff Gunhus
Sequel to the Amazon Bestseller, Night Chill.
Ten years after her abduction and near-sacrifice to the Source, Sarah Tremont struggles to be a normal teenager. As much as she’s tried to suppress the power inside of her, it’s grown dangerously strong and has drawn the attention of those who want to possess her power for themselves.
The nightmare that she thought was long over starts again as powerful forces descend upon Prescott City to seek her out. With her parents and Joseph Lonetree’s help, Sarah must stand up to an evil much more powerful than the one she faced in the caves a decade earlier. But in the end, she discovers the greatest danger might come from the power living inside of her.

Night Terror is the follow up to one of my favorite horror books, Night Chill.
In the very beginning we follow a few news articles about what has happened since Night Chill, how Lonetree is MIA and there is a manhunt for both him and Sorenson. They went missing (with good reason) and they are wanted.
Then we jump in to today, 10 years later, the anniversary is on us and Jeff pulls no punches with dumping us right in the middle of the horror show. I was quite creeped out right from the beginning. This however is separate (at this point) from the Tremonts, but knowing Jeff’s writing, somehow it is all going to come together and when it is all said I done, I will be wishing I didn’t read it in the dark.
Oh but what better time to settle in with an amazing horror story?
Amazing it was. We are back with the Tremonts. Sarah is now 16 and whatever happened to her down with the source, whatever power she got, it’s stronger. She hasn’t let on to her parents that this is going on and she has been dealing with this on her own since she awoke in the hospital after she was shot.
I’m not going to go any deeper because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I have to say I loved this in a holy crap that was freaking crazy kind of way. I really like that we got to know Lonetree more. There was a part in the beginning where Lonetree said that he has been like his name since his brother died, a lone tree, except unlike a tree he doesn’t get to put down roots. He’s a fugitive on the run and to many days in one place makes him antsy. There is more to him that that as watch how his relationship with Sorenson started. I really like his character.
May I offer a tidbit of advice do not eat while you are reading any of Mama D’s scenes or an early scene of Lauren in the lab.
That didn’t work out to well for me.
All in all, another absolutely amazing book (where Iowa is mentioned! that always makes me smile) from Jeff Gunhus! I am a loyal fan and will never miss another book he picks out.
If you are brave enough, if you can handle horror that is both the actual gore written on the pages along with the perfect imagery for your mind to go off on your own tangent wondering what horrors are coming next, this is the book for you. That is one thing I love about Jeff’s writing, yes – it is gory and that is creepy to read, but the fear that your own mind races to create along side the written word, that is talent. It’s an excellent mix of both.
Thank you so much for my copy of Night Terror!
Now pardon me as I go check under my bed and in my closet for things that the locks on the doors won’t keep out.
