Try Darkness

I am in love with a character in a book.

Ty Buchanan is not only brilliant, but he's human and he has a soft spot in his heart for a little six year old girl. Take a look at where he lives... with nuns at a convent. Not your typical convent, either. His neighbor is a priest who was falsely accused of abusing children and the Catholic church leaders wanted to shove him out of the way so they put him at this convent. Then there's Sister Mary, who has the sharpest elbows and a truly wonderful heart and a smart-alec mouth who also plays a mean game of basketball. Add two full cups of Sister Hildegard who does not seem to have a Christian heart at all, and you've got the ingredients for a masterful series.

James Scott Bell is literally in a class all his own. This series leaves you very satisfied, but also eager for the next offering. You can pick up this book independently of his first book, "Try Dying", but why miss out on another wonderful experience?

I highly recommend you start "Try Darkness" in the ver early evening, or maybe on a Saturday morning because you can't put it down. It's that good. It was extremely satisfying. There are none of the editing mistakes I've found in other books. There were none of the mistakes so often made by young authors that completely ruin the storyline flow, and no wonder because BEll is very experienced. Plus, there were a few really excellent turns of phrases that either make you smile or laugh out loud. It's a pleasure to tell you to run to the stores and pick up this book. There have been only a very few books that I've read in this Blog Tour thing that I've wanted to add to my own library. This one and "Try Dying" are two that have found spots on my shelves. I love finding Keepers.
