Classic good versus evil!
Don't let the title or the cover art scare you away. This book definitely fits in the category of Christian fiction.
This is a must read novel by a new author. Although Scott classifies the book in the "horror" genre, I would classify it as a classic example of spiritual warfare. It shows the depth of depravity rampant in the world today and the struggles Christians have between satifying the flesh and living a spiritual life approved by God. Through his choice of characters, Scott shows that although we have sins in our lives, we can indeed overcome and become spiritual warriors for Christ. The characters are well-developed and believable. The heroes are ordinary people (for the most part) whom the reader can get behind by feeling their emotions and sharing in their struggles. The plot is fast-paced and keeps the reader wanting to stay up late at night to find out what happens next.
I place Scott Meade within the ranks of other Christian authors who write similar stories. If you enjoy books by Frank Peretti, add Scott Meade and "Twisted Christians" to your reading list.
Great book Scott! I hope there are many more to come.

Spiritual warfare described in fiction, or is it?
"Twisted Christians" was fantastically written. Character development is great. I was already interested when suddenly I was surprised, and then I couldn't stop turning the pages. This could make a great movie someday complete with musical sound track. The audio and video was already playing in my head as I was reading due to Scott Meade's artistic way of placing it there. For some this is great sci-fi paranormal fiction and for others it's a real depiction of the spirit world and spiritual warfare. No matter whether you believe or not, you will want to read Twisted Christians to find out what makes them twisted.

Glad I Took The Chance!
I have to be honest, when I bought this book, I did not really know what to expect. I don't typically read anything in this genre, as I usually stick to True Crime, Suspense or Thrillers. That being said, I decided to take a chance and I am glad that I did. The story was well thought out, well-written and left me hanging on every word; I did not want to put it down. The characters were all unique and I either liked them immediately or was intrigued by them, curious to see their roles develop.
It is one of those reads where there are no boring points; it was fascinating throughout the entire book. Though it was fiction, there were a lot of morals in the story that really made you stop and think. I could see this becoming a movie one day and hope that it does!
