Saturday Christian Fiction Carnival: Thrill Me!

First of all, I was so excited that so many of you participated last week! I think we had a lot of fun, and it was so much fun to see all the different reasons we love Christian fiction. I only got name suggestions from one person...so be sure to send in your suggestions if you have some!

Ok, here's today's question:

Whether or not you celebrate Halloween, there's something about the shorter days and chilly air that makes one want to curl up with a scary book. The horror market for Christian fiction is growing in creativity and testing all sorts of boundaries. The suspense market is also very rich with many talented authors. So my question(s) for you is...what's the best Christian fiction horror or suspense novel that you've read? What book would you recommend to someone who wanted to try out these genres? What's a book in these genres you want to read but haven't yet?

To Participate please remember to do these things:
1) Make sure you leave a link to the specific post (permalink) in which you answer the question. That way, we can easily find your answer. I know some of you post multiple times daily and it can be frustrating for someone to try to find your answer if you just link to your general URL.

2) Please link back to THIS specific post in your post so that everyone can navigate easily back and forth to read each other's answers.

Here's my link: http://inspiritandtruths.blogspot.com/ Dummy me forgot about the carnival before I already had my Saturday post up, but I edited in just now the link back here and posted the answer to your question in the Free Spirit comments. (smile)

Good one today, Amy!

Great question! I honestly don't think I've read a Christian thriller, but I enjoy Christian suspense. My post is here: http://ramblings-n-writings.blogspot.com/2008/10/my-choice-of-suspense-fiction.html

Suggestion for a title for the carnival: "Faith, Friends, and Fiction" ??

Thanks for doing this!

Well, I've been through the blogs that have been posted so far and have discovered that I am way out of touch with what's current. And here I thought I was pretty much with it. LOL. Wonderful recommendations and oh my aching wallet!

Mine is up, I'm not a very experienced reader in this genre, but those are my thoughts. Also, just a reminder if any participants have a review they'd like featured in the Christian Book Carnival this Wednesday please stop by here http://quiverfullfamily.com/christian-book-carnival/ to submit your review!

Amy,

I loved Isolation by Travis Thrasher! It was an awesome read, and really creepy! I can't wait for his next book.

This was a fun question...

Lori said...

This is a tough one.

Ronnica said...

Okay, I'm a little late to participate, but a must-read Christian mystery/thriller is the Visitation by Frank Peretti. It's a little different as it has a lot of background into the characters, but that's what makes it so good.
