Seed by Ania Ahlborn Is Scary
In Seed by Ania Ahlborn, Jack Winter totals his ancient Saturn when he veers abruptly to avoid something strange crossing the road in front of his car. The accident, even with his wife and two children upside down in the wreckage, was not as traumatic as the thing he saw in the road. The glimpse of the familiar animal eyes he’d recognized from when he was a boy in Georgia had chilled him to the bone. Jack had hoped and prayed the demon that had plagued him then would never find him in Louisiana. The demon from his childhood with soulless eyes and razor-sharp teeth was not a guardian angel at the scene of the accident. It had allowed him and his family to survive the crash only because it had more diabolical plans of revenge in store for them. Jack’s worst apprehensions of what would follow come true when Charlie, his six-year-old daughter, suddenly begins acting strange and has trouble sleeping much the same as he had years before.
The plot, crafted superbly by the author, has believable characters everyone can relate to. I turned the pages with such enthusiasm; I couldn’t believe it when I reached the spellbinding conclusion.
The most compelling thing about Seed is it not only purports to be scary, it is scary. As in The Omen, The Bad Seed, The Exorcist, Lord of the Flies, and others, kids do evil things in this book. Such actions by usually innocent characters are often disquieting to some readers, and even appalling and hard to read to stomach for some others. Thankfully, I enjoy all kinds of terror whether inflicted by old men, children. or elves.
Rest assured you will not find wussy ghosts in these pages. Seed has a demonic devil with serious as a heart attack bad intentions lives in the shadows, the closet, and under the bed in the Winters household.
Like Elvis, leaving the building in his prime, Seed by Ania Ahlborn truly leaves the reader wanting more. I look forward to reading and reviewing her other offerings with great anticipation.
