Distorton by Terri Blackstock

"Distortion", is fast paced and intriguing. You can never go wrong with Terri Blackstock. She is one of my favorites for a suspenseful read. A few of my favorite series from Blackstock are, The Cape Refuge Series, The Restoration Series, and Newpointe 911. She writes fascinating. She has the gift to pull the reader in within the first few sentences. I often wonder while writing does she sit in a dark room with creepy music playing. Her stories take the reader on a journey of unexpected twists and turns. I've never been disappointed by Terri Blackstock. 

With her newest addition to the Moonlighters Series, "Distortion", keeps you turning pages. She writes with such depth and you don't know what is unfolding in the next pages. That's why her reads are unputdownables. Once you begin reading you're addicted. I started reading this last night and literally devoured it with a few hours. 

The first in the series is, "Truth Stained Lies", which I enjoyed immensely. You don't have to read the first in this series to enjoy this read. But as with any of Blackstock's series, it's always a huge benefit to the reader to begin with the first. By first reading, "Truth Stained Lies", you will have a greater understanding of the characters and the story-line. 

There have been deaths in the family. Murders to be exact and now this family is turned upside down once again as evil finds a way into their lives. The main character is Juliet Cole. It's just a normal kind of day. She and her husband are helping her sister move and something goes horribly wrong. The story escalates from there. Oh, the consequences that touch us from the actions of others. 

Throughout this story you will find the good guys and the villains. Sometimes it's hard to tell who is on which side. The lines get blurred and truth is questioned. As the truth is uncovered there is more and more to try to understand. But as we see, one cannot understand evil. Distortion is a great title. One of the characters in this story leads a double life. I found myself asking just how one could live this way, but as we see, in a distorted world it's sometimes easy to get sucked into a life that exceeds our entire belief system.

Okay, remember when I said it would be beneficial to read the first in the series? This novel leaves the reader hanging a bit. We don't really have all the answers as to why things happened the way they did. As with reading other series penned by Blackstock, I can only imagine she will catch us up when the third book is released. 

I LOVED this read and I highly recommend it. Get ready. It's a fast paced ride!
