I really enjoyed this story! Poll has the ability to build real suspense and walk you through danger as if you are right there. Can't wait to get started on her next book!

Christian horror novel exhibiting spiritual warfare (4.0 out of 5 stars)
A novel about spiritual warfare executed in a colorful and zingy manner. The unseen battle manifests out of a legend into the physical. Fierce and gruesome demonic soul-hunting takes place, overcoming one person after another until... (sorry, no spoiler). This story of the supernatural genre with a dash of romance possesses a stronger bent toward horror. But fear not, there is hope. Although Ravens Cove set in Alaska is part of a series, it is also a fine standalone with a compact plot and rightfully satisfying conclusion.

“Bottom line: if you want a fun, Christian-fueled book where good triumphs over evil, then this is the series for you.”
“Raven's Cove, a great mystery by Mary Ann Poll. Avoid it when winds are gusting to hurricane speed outside. No extra creepiness needed.”
Welcome to the Devil’s playground otherwise known as Raven’s Cove. This serene little Alaskan town is known for its ravens and its friendly people but no one knows about the demons that lurk everywhere. The town hosts two Christian churches but one is the Devil’s and one is God’s. Each church leader has a role to play in the scary upcoming events. A murder is the first overt indication that something is very wrong in Raven’s Cove. This murder frightens the citizens despite the town’s legends and history of gory murders in a nearby ravine. Josiah Williams comes to town with a message that demons can and will destroy their town if they don’t fight. No one listens at first but after the second murder, he can’t be ignored. A small group including Josiah, Sheriff Bart, Kat Tovslosky, Grandma Bricken, FBI Agent Ken Melbourne and Pastor Paul will have to go to the very gates of Hell to save their town. This short novel is reminiscent of Stephen King’s earlier works. Well written and interesting, people will race through the story to see who survives this brush with evil.
