With this seed I do sow.
Seeds of evil do grow,
within my loins do they burrow.
For in the sowing of my oats.
A force took over to corrupt.
I did not get to say my goodbyes.
It smothered my soul in the blink of an eye.

by Nikki

The story of Holly being taken over by an entity during her pregnancy is a sad one. Her and her husband Richard didn’t seem to have a chance at fighting what was stealing their happiness and ruining their family.

I think that is the reason this read did not get more stars. It was hopeless. When Richard thought he could be strong, the witch would implant some images in his mind to cow him.

The descriptions were well done, but his execution is still off. Where were the twists and hills? We walked a predictable line to a predictable ending. There were no detours or unexpected hail-Mary’s. And having the baby name be Damien was lame.

Still, Tim is a good writer. I just expect more. I can see his work on the big screen like King. He just needs some hidden doorways and forks in the road.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.
