“Thomas Smith’s Something Stirs is everything a Christian horror story should be…and more. As an author in the same genre, I don’t scare easily but this one had me watching the shadows in my own home. With identifiable characters, great pacing, and chills that build as the story progresses, Something Stirs will be enjoyed by anyone looking for a good read. Consider me impressed. And scared!”
– Mike Dellosso, author of Darkness Follows, Frantic, and Rearview
Ben Chalmers is a successful novelist. His wife, Rachel, is a fledgling artist with a promising career, and their daughter Stacy is the joy of their life. His novels have made enough money for him to provide a dream home for his family. But there is a force at work in their lives. A dark, chilling, ruthless force that has become part of the very fabric of their new home.
A malevolent entity becomes trapped in the wood and stone of the house and it will do whatever it takes, to find a way to complete its bloody transference to our world.
Local Sheriff, Elizabeth Cantrell, and former pastor-turned-cabinetmaker, Jim Perry are drawn into the family’s life as the entity manipulates the house with devastating results. And it won’t stop until it gets what it wants. Even if it costs them their faith, their sanity, and their lives.
“Simply put, Something Stirs is scary. And good. And scary good. I made the mistake of picking this one up at about 2am to just thumb through a few chapters. Four hours later, the sun was rising and my heart rate was slowly returning to normal. Smith’s writing drew me in, held me there, and left me unable to do anything but finish the book…If you’ve read and enjoyed authors such as Frank Peretti, Travis Thrasher, or Mike Dellosso you’ll definitely enjoy Something Stirs.”
