Dark Halo by Christopher Kokoski
genre: paranormal thriller
In a town besieged by shadowy, demonic forces, a father races against time to save his family.
Thirty-five-year old Landon Paddock has deserted his wife and daughter, abandoned his business, and secluded himself in his late parent’s southern Indiana ranch. But he’s barely lapsed into a drunken coma when a mysterious, winged stranger appears during a violent lightning storm, chasing him out into the maddening night with his estranged 15-year old daughter.
As layer after layer of reality is dissolved by a series of violent encounters, the only way to survive might be for Landon to band together with the family he destroyed to make one last stand against a sinister army of unthinkable magnitude.
About the Author
Christopher was born in Kansas, the son of an Army Ranger and Black Hawk pilot. He grew up in Kentucky and Germany, and graduated from Murray State University in 2002 with a degree in Organizational Communication. He spent the next three years laboring over his first book, Past Lives, while getting married to his college sweetheart, having a beautiful daughter, and more or less finding his stride in life.
He currently lives in Southern Indiana and works in Louisville, Kentucky as a national trainer. He has presented at local and national conferences on a wide spectrum of topics including communication, body language, cultural sensitivity and influence. Other notable activities include writing articles, short stories, novels and training materials for national and international audiences.
Christopher continues his passion and dedication to writing by working on additional novels, including a sequel to the Past Lives series. His most recent book is the standalone paranormal thriller, Dark Halo.
This book was intense, not in a bad way but in a grip the book with both hands and hold on tight. It was non-stop action from the first word to the last. After I finished this book it felt like I had run a marathon. The book is set in Small Town Indiana and the author does a really amazing job painting a picture of places and people and events. This book was so complex and wonderful and beautiful. It had demons, angels, mystery, and so much more. The cover art is amazing. The Characters are awesome. I look forward to reading this author again and highly recommend this book to anyone who is up for and action packed intense ride.
My Rating: 4 out of 5.
