INFESTATION: A Small Town Nightmare 2 by Tanya R. Taylor

INFESTATION: A Small Town Nightmare 2


Evil lurks in the most unlikely places.

The town of Bringham—once a peaceful, God-fearing community, suddenly and abruptly finds itself in a major crisis. Strange things are happening which defy logic even in the slightest sense of the word. Yet, one resident has seen the devastation before-hand and knows that if something isn't done quickly to eradicate the evil that is upon them, the town they know and love will be a distant, tragic memory.

What no one can possibly fathom is that the seemingly pious and good-natured may be the reason the darkness has found its way to Bringham in the first place.

As you pay close attention to this story, each episode will bring you closer and closer to the truth.

In this sequel, discover what else has been uncovered in this small town.

The Guru's Review: 

The following is what I included in the review of the previous instalment, episode 1 of Infestation, 
I am looking forward to Taylor introducing more of the spiritual side to this story, notably from a biblical worldview. So far, I am pleased with what I have read despite the fact that the only spiritual aspects are that the evil is demonic and a few references to living and treating people according to God’s standard as outlined in the Bible.
A very easy read with some promising plot lines laid down for further development. I am looking forward to seeing the horror elements developed and the countermeasures to deal with this, hopefully from a biblical worldview and perspective. Bring on the spiritual warfare!
Well, in this episode, the demonic oppression deepens, more murders, seven in one incident, and a new church which seems to be honest on the outside but is not as it seems  has Marie suspicious that this could be connected to the source of this 'infestation'. 

She also finds more clues from interviewing one of the perpetrators  of multiple murders from the previous episode. From  all these events, she is even more suspicious about what is the real cause of these heinous crimes that are taking over the town but Marie is not forthcoming yet and I can see that this will happen in the final episode. Towards the end of this short, the demonic events escalate with one of Amy's friends having a demonic experience with tangible physical results, and it this that makes Marie realise what is happening in Bingham is more serious than she thought. 

Taylor has included more biblical principles of discernment, asking for guidance through prayer, and not speaking out against God's appointed leaders without the leading of the Spirit. I did appreciate Taylor's depiction of Marie's vulnerability and struggle to carry out what God has appointed her to do. This is a very realistic depiction and one that I am sure most Christians can relate to. 

I was expecting more events of the estrangement of Marie's family in this episode, but it is not there. If this is not finalised in the final episode, I don't see what role it served in this entire story as it will remain unfinished with no connection to the plot. This short does not seem to be as action packed or involved as it predecessor and I wish it could have been. However, it was still a very enjoyable read and the suspense and intrigue builds as it takes you along for the ride. Personally, I would like each episode to be longer so more of the spiritual aspects could be more fleshed out. I can only hold out for the final episode to see what the icing on this cake is going to be like.

I am, however, really looking forward to everything coming to a head in this final episode with all being explained and wrapped up nicely. 

Strongly Recommended.
