Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s tons of focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!
Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below or make sure you link back to this post so I can check it out and add you down below!
→ Note: If you want to participate, but haven’t read many standalone’s, feel free to create a post featuring a standalone on your TBR, or one you want to read. The books you feature can be standalone books that look/sound good to you! It’s not a requirement to use only books you’ve read.
SEEING EVIL by Jason Parent
Fate in plain sight.
Major Crimes Detective Samantha Reilly prefers to work alone—she’s seen as a maverick, and she still struggles privately with the death of her partner. The only person who ever sees her softer side is Michael Turcotte, a teenager she’s known since she rescued him eleven years ago from the aftermath of his parents’ murder-suicide.
In foster care since his parents’ death, Michael is a loner who tries to fly under the bullies’ radar, but a violent assault triggers a disturbing ability to view people’s dark futures. No one believes his first vision means anything, though—not even Sam Reilly. When reality mimics his prediction, however, Sam isn’t the only one to take notice. A strange girl named Tessa Masterson asks Michael about her future, and what he sees sends him back to Sam—is Tessa victim or perpetrator?
Tessa’s tangled secrets draw Michael and Sam inexorably into a deadly conflict. Sam relies on Michael, but his only advantage is the visions he never asked for. As they track a cold and calculating killer, one misstep could turn the hunters into prey.
Seeing Evil is one of those books that you keep thinking about long after you’ve finished it. Filled with gory horror, suspense, grit, and twisted ass characters, this book will have you on the edge of your seat… jumping at every little sound you hear. This story is literally amazing. I love when a horror novel is done right, and Parent did an outstanding job with this one. After reading this, he has become one of my faves, and I’m looking forward to his new releases coming out soon! I rated this book five stars, because it absolutely deserves it… and if you wanna read a well-done horror novel, I recommend this one a thousand percent! Go. Read. This. Now!
