    1. “Eli’s Coming” is the first in the Chasing The Night series, by Darcia Helle. This is a psychological/supernatural suspense novel. I have a great respect for this author, and have read all her books and am a huge fan. Darcia knows how to satisfy the reader; what the reader will accept as believable or not.When I was first introduced to Darcia, I remember what she wrote under her profile. “Words are my addiction. I love to read; fiction, nonfiction, cereal boxes, ingredient labels. If it [...]

    2. I'm a big fan of Darcia Helle's writing. This author really knows how to write books that keep you turning the pages. I have yet to read something by this author that has disappointed me and I think the key to that is that she always keeps surprising the reader with new and exciting ideas. With this book she surprised me again because it was not what I was expecting at all. It's a supernatural thriller with elements of fantasy and suspense. Even though she has written something that deviates fro [...]

    3. 4.5 starsEli Hayes has a secret, an ability like no other. As a descendant of the Native American Timucua, he has special powers. One in particular that others would kill for.

Could he, or should he, keep running from a past which haunts and threatens to destroy him? When he meets Amanda and they begin a relationship, something [...]

    4. 3.5 out of 5 starsReviewed on behalf of Rosie Amber's review teamI chose to read this book from the review team list because I had read another of Darcia Helle's books, underworld crime thriller Killing Instinct, and loved it. Eli's Coming, however, comes under the genre headings of supernatural/dark fantasy; I'd mistakenly thought it was a psychological thriller with a supernatural slant, but the fantasy side of it is the main element of the story. My error!Amanda becomes involved with the myst [...]

    5. What a surprising read for me, though not because of the author’s ability to create a good story. The first few pages revealed that her writing skills are excellent. The surprise was due to how much I enjoyed reading a novel in the dark fantasy genre. I loved the way she wove goodness and kindness into the darker aspects of this suspense-filled story. Helle was masterful in her creation of an intense, chilling atmosphere, one that resounded even more because of her insertion of mysterious aspe [...]

    11. The best aspect of this book was it’s compelling realism. The characters followed up plot twists with reasonably legitimate actions and…OK.Fine.It’s possible that the Native American Tribe with the inherited powers that allow them to manipulate people’s energy isn’t totally normal. But it’s set up so well! And this is a supernatural suspense sort of book, so you’ve got to have something.But in this book there is life beyond the supernatural suspense, you know, strangely like real l [...]
