Mystery, darkness, evil forces and death follow Mariutza from the shelter of Louisana's swamps into the dizzying brightness of the city lights. Mari must seek out the one person whom she believes can overcome the evil and solve the mysteries surrounding her grandfather's death before she becomes the next victim.
Powers is the followup to John B. Olson's Shade. The first book introduced the mysterious people, "The Standing" who battle against evil forces determined to destroy them. Powers continues that story, introducing new characters and mysteries which lead readers down a new dark path.
If you enjoy mystery and intrigue and authors like Peretti and Decker, you will love this new book by John Olson. If you recognize Olson's name from my book picks before -- you're very observant! I thoroughly enjoyed another two-book set written by Olson and Randy Ingermanson, Oxygen and The Fifth Man. You can read more about those books on this earlier blog post.
