Publisher's Summary

Winter Maessen didn't ask for the gift of prophecy. She's happy being a freak - but now everyone thinks she's crazy. Or evil.
Goths aren't all the same, you know. Some are Christians.... Christians to whom God sends visions. Students at her university are being attacked, and Winter knows there's more than flesh and blood at work. Her gift means she's the only one who can stop it - but at what price?
Winter has a five-star rating on Amazon and has received rave reviews. The target audience for this book fits nicely into the same target audience as the Twilight saga. However, the books are completely different. This book has a very distinct Christian worldview, but it is not preachy. Its genre has been described as Spiritual Thriller, Christian Horror, Gothic Thriller, and Paranormal.

What utter rubbish!!

What disappointed you about Winter?

Winter is a self absorbed individual with the personality of a 13 year old spoilt brat.


What was most disappointing about Keven Newsome’s story?

The story did not flow. It jumped all over the place. Sometimes the characters found themselves in situtations and the listener does not know how they managed to get there.


What didn’t you like about Lindsay Zana’s performance?

Really bad voice changes for various characters. Especially Winter's spoilt brat and Summer's blonde bimbo voices.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Extreme irritation.


Any additional comments?

I copy my audiobooks onto CD's but threw them straight into the dustbin after finishing the audiobook!! Music was also distrating and did not suit the story at all.

Great story for Christian suspense lovers

Winter is a new Christian, but she's not your ordinary Christian. First, she's Goth. Second, she's having strange moments of deja vu that lead to full-blown prophecies. There's someone out there, though, that desperately wants Winter and her gift out of the picture.

Well-paced and truly suspenseful, Winter has a rich setting and strong characters. The dual story line is woven together quite well, revealing bits of Winter's past along with present action.

The audio is not typical of most audiobook readings, from what I understand. I haven't actually listened to that many. This one, I know however, is read by a girl with an acting background. She has a voice that I thought matched very well with the character of Winter and brought a lot of emotion to the reading.

BTW--those who have given this book poor ratings due to Christian content--how about READ the description instead of griping about content that is CLEARLY labelled.
