My daughter, like many girls her age, has an interest in R.L. Stine books. She desires to know more about the spiritual realm, and she wants to face her fears. Healthy desires, yes. Open to deception, absolutely.
Bill Myers "Forbidden Doors" books have been just what the Physician ordered. I've enjoyed Myers' adult novels, but I think his books for the younger set are even more entertaining. And, above all, they shed light on the biblical definitions of good and evil.
"The Deceived" is the second book we've read together. We liked the first book, but this one was even more riveting. This time, Myers lets one of his main characters, Rebecca, face the deception that's all around. She begins to succumb to the "logic" of reincarnation and hypnotism, mesmerized by the beguiling Maxwell Hunter. Her struggle is believable. Scary stuff. And, with the end of each chapter, my daughter was begging for more. In fact, she let her library book of R.L. Stine's sit abandoned on the table as we cruised through the pages of "The Deceived" to discover Rebecca's final outcome.
We've already obtained a copy of the third book, "The Spell." We can't wait to get started! Hello, Bill Myers. Goodbye, R.L. Stine!
