By Julie Ann Hacker
Genre: Horror, Spiritual/Religious Fiction
After stumbling upon a misguided trip into her horror-filled childhood in book #1, The Dead Dance Faster - Unsacred Awakening, the quagmire of secrecy and terror continues to unfold. Jael's mind boggles under the dense, manipulative charade of a reprobate, thriller religion. Spirit Breaker takes off where Unsacred Awakening's thrills twisted into a disquieted prologue of what's held within the pages of Spirit Breaker. The intensity of Jude's 'Screaming-Ego' lure has reached Jael revealing the seductive persuasion it wields as it continues to follow her through the next stage of her life.
Moving to Lousiana garners short-lived relief before Thomas Jude and Annalise hatch another conniving plan, which becomes seductively clear to the one closest to her, Shane--her partner, lover, and friend. Jael's thwarted back to Seven Hills, NY, the small town from which she escaped not long ago, and back to her childhood home, uncovering new lengths to which her divorced religion will go. 'DDF' (Dead Dance Faster) and 'Diversus' determinations were only the beginning. The war to keep Jael from freedom, to keep her reeling, to keep her mind imprisoned by fear, has established a battle for one coveted idol. And, the idol's priceless, the most precious--one she will not willingly give up--one to die for. Once she steps into this spiritual realm once again, she may never make it back home.
Allow Pastor Jude's shrouded mind bring to light hidden conjurings of life. Allow Jael's courage to break free and inspire you.
A saga filled with horror, mystery, suspense, drama, fear, diabolical wickedness, truth & love.
