The small town of Refuge is the perfect hideaway for Patrick Lahm and the Freys. Nestled in the heart of Maine and miles away from the Kurtain Motel, Refuge promises both tranquility and ease of mind. The mundane routine of working in the local post office and buying groceries is all Patrick could hope for. For the first time in his life, things are finally looking up.But one can only escape from his sins for so long. Occasional nightmares, visions of the dead, and a priest hell-bound on confessions leave the survivors feeling that it is only a matter of time before the darkness catches up. With Jimmy by his side, Patrick watches as the walls of reality crumble around him, and he quickly realizes that there can be no rest for the sinful.No matter how far they run.
Patrick, Jimmy and his mom, barely escaped the Kurtain Motel with their lives and went on the run from the Sin eater. They found a tiny town called Refuge, and it seemed perfect for them. But nothing is as it seems and Patrick's normal life is about to come crashing down again!!
Now this was some seriously twisty read. The plot was awesome!!! We start with seeing Patrick having a good life. He is working in the Post Office and life is good, but the priest gives him the creeps and seems to be obsessed with getting people to "confess". Something about this seems very familiar to Patrick but he isn't sure what. Meanwhile we get glimpses back into the Kurtain Motel. Initially this is a little confusing but it starts to come together and you find your mind blown. I really didn't see that coming!!!
Again, we have the same characters with others thrown in, but this time it felt like we got more debt to them and got to know them a little better. They were more developed and I was able to become more invested in them. Plus I liked getting to know Jimmy more!! I was also so happy to see Patrick live a good, happy life. He has grown on me and I was rooting for him!!
In all, this was an awesome read. I loved the setting and how mysterious and intriguing Refuge and the people were. The twist was great too and I can not wait to see what happens next!!
Thom Bowers did a better job with this one because the majority of the story revolves around Patrick and Jimmy. He brought the characters and atmosphere to life and knows how to tell a creepy tale!
