Few things are as thrilling as finding a new writer whose talent for storytelling is obvious from page one. Well, meet Keven Newsome and prepare to be thrilled. If his chilling debut novel, Winter, doesn’t leave you breathless and wanting more, you better make sure you have a pulse. Well developed characters, an intriguing, fast-paced plot, top-notch craftsmanship— Winter (and Keven Newsome) delivers in spade.

A short take: this is an interesting but uneven book with a nontraditional protagonist and a blend of paranormal and spiritual warfare tropes. Winter’s an unusual character, and her “prophet” status is also interesting, if the implications aren’t explored as much as  I like.  It can be a bit edgy, and I’d think Christian readers who enjoy paranormal fiction would enjoy this as well.

Keven looks to be working on a sequel to this, and I’m interested to see in how it develops. Winter has potential to be a very strong character indeed.
