Completed in the months before Hurricane Rita sideswiped Houston, Violent Night follows 7 teens as they survive both a psychopathic nemesis and an the assault of a Category 5 hurricane. The Day of Reckoning grants the youths new lives on The Other Side, but leaves their youngest member behind in a dystopian Forsaken World where evil has the upper hand. Lightning is a gateway between worlds, allowing evil a chance to make the jump.
A fictional character in the novel, Leonard Ramblin, was based on Justice’s experiences during the time he lived in nearby Midland, from 1970-1974.
Kansas-based Heartland Reviews gave the book its best rating of five hearts; reviewer Marcia Schutte commented, The inevitable comparison is to the “Left Behind” series; do yourself a favor and read the gripping tale that is Violent Night instead.
