Powerful and Moving...

Wow! If I were to use just one word to describe Paralyzed that would be it. Anyone who checks out my reading list for the last 2 or 3 years would quickly see that I am a fan of Alana Terry's novels. And there is a good reason, she is an excellent and talented author. Paralyzed is definite proof of that.

Alana Terry has done the almost unthinkable, she has written a story with raw emotions of real people, not the usual glossy Christian image in suspense novels, but rather the real deal. Kennedy Stern has been through the wringer. She is still being emotionally tormented by either a sadistic killer or her own imagination. In the wake of the traumatic events of Unplanned, Kennedy struggles with making sense of what happened. She keeps thinking that because she is a Christian she should have everything together, pray, read the Bible, and everything will be all hunky-dory. But real life isn't like that, it's a messy, long road toward healing. I loved how Alana portrays Kennedy so realistically, she hasn't lost her faith but she struggles with understanding what God is doing and how He let it all happen.

Paralyzed is an emotion-rending story, totally immersing you in Kennedy's world, and is impossible to put down. It provokes the mind to think about the more difficult things, it tugs at the heart, and in many ways inspires the soul.

I do suggest reading Unplanned first because the suspense angles will make a lot more sense, and yes, there is plenty of heart-stopping action within the pages of Paralyzed.

This is a book you won't want to miss and a series that you'll be as interested as I am in seeing more adventures for Kennedy as she navigates the world of campus life.
