Book Review: Rebekka Moon by Michele Spence

Blurb: The Branch: a quiet place, a sleepy Nebraska town, a place where nothing had happened - not for decades. Until it began...
First it was the children - their "innocent" pranks, their "childish" cruelties, transformed overnight into unspeakable acts of torture, madness, and sudden, hideous death.
Then it was more...much more. The town was swept into a current of irresistible evil...a tide of darkness that swirled around the solitary figure of a frail sixteen year old girl.
Could she control their bodies? Possess their minds? Could anyone grasp her secret and stop...Rebekka Moon

I give it 3 stars.

My review:

This book reminded of something Stephen King would write. It wasn't as good as a King book, though. Sometimes the transitions between scenes were too abrupt and occasional random head hopping left me confused about whose POV I was reading a few times. Still, it's not a bad book. The parts where the story is told from the title character's point of view were eerie. I think the writer did a fine job of carrying the reader into the mind of a sociopathic teenaged girl. If you like Stephen King, you might want to give this one a try.
