An ancient sin. A long forgotten oath. A town with a deadly secret. Something evil is at work in Hyde River, an isolated mining town in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Under the cover of darkness, a predator strikes without warning--taking life in the most chilling and savage fashion. The community of Hyde River watches in terror as residents suddenly vanish. Yet, the more locals are pressed for information, the more they close ranks, sworn to secrecy by their forefathers' hidden sins. Only when Hyde River's secrets are exposed is the true extent of the danger fully revealed. What the town discovers is something far more deadly than anything they'd imagined. Something that doesn't just stalk its victims, but has the power to turn hearts black with decay as it slowly fills their souls with darkness.… (més)

Set in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, an isolated old mining town experiences several bizarre incidents for which biologist Steve Benson and deputy Sheriff Tracy Ellis seek answers. Suspenseful and spellbinding.

Hutch read this one first; then he enjoyed it so much he lent it to me. This is an amazing tale turning an average sinner's life into a horror story. It brings sin to your own back door, and you can feel it breathing fire down your neck. If you aren't a Christian before you read this book, you probably will be one afterwards. Rating - 5 stars due to amazing imagery, especially with the descriptions of the beast ( )

If this book were much shorter, it might have some chance of success. As is, though, the heavy-handed nature of the book, and the easy predictability of it all (from very early on), end up making it somewhat tedious, and far from frightening.

The plot of the work, and the downfalls/stereotypes of the respective characters, are so easily pinpointed and predicted early on that there's not much here to find compelling, aside from the short sections of narrative and the relatively fast-paced plot. Those things manage to drive the book forward for perhaps half of it, but at that point, it becomes obvious that the characters have little to no depth, and the book itself is written toward such a single and heavy-handed theme that there's just not much to be entertained by.

In the end, I didn't find this scary, or particularly interested once I realized where everything was going (around page 50 or 75, perhaps, of a 550 page novel). I won't be reading anymore of Peretti's writing. ( )

I have read a few of Peretti's and this one like others is very engaging and hard to put down. ( )

This book is the story of a town that is supposedly losing many citizens to a "dragon". Everyone living there is very superstitious. Obviously, the man investigating the disappearances is very skeptical of this theory. His job is made more difficult by the fact that the townspeople are very unwillingly to give him information. It is a supernatural/fantasy novel, with religious elements incorporated. If you liked other books by Frank Peretti or Ted Dekker, you may find this book interesting.

As usual, Frank Peretti solves the mystery by incorporating religion. However, I felt that this story did so rather clumsily. It didn't fit well with the plot line. Also, the main character did not undergo any extreme change throughout the course of the story.
Additionally, the supposed "oath" from the title was not talked about very often at all.

Overall, the entire book was kind of awkward and clumsy. The plot did flow nicely, but changes occurred very suddenly and some important details were unclear. It didn't really have a happy ending either, which was upsetting.

I have read several other Frank Peretti books, which I have greatly enjoyed. However, this one was not my favorite. ( )

It's been great doing things that make sense-basically. Moses only had two guys to hold up his arms-I've had four.
Thanks, guys."
