    1. Let me say first, if you're not Christian please don't let that put you off trying the novel. The book is told from what would be a Christian point of viewbut then so is Dracula. The book isn't preachy and I think you can probably read it without your viewpoint being shifted against your will. Oddly some Christians are annoyed with this book because it doesn't present down the line theology. It's pretty good story telling and I think if you give it a try you might enjoy it.Okay.good book. Let me [...]


    2. I struggled through this, to be honest. (view spoiler)[I thought I could forgive Dani (the heroine) for allowing those teenagers to go without any punishment for what they did. The part where they were drugged and such works up to a part after the murder of that young girl. They were not drugged then. But, hey, they are from the East Salem rich families, so that's fine.(hide spoiler)]I was hoping that this book would be a bit better. The best description would be: remember the horror films where [...]


    3. I have always liked books and movies that depict the battle between good and evil. Especially books that feature demons, angels and secret societies. Darkness Rising is the second book in the East Salem trilogy and it had me on edge the entire time. Evil is coming and its starting in East Salem Massachusetts. This tale left me breathless and afraid. I cannot wait for the final installment.This tale picks up right after book one ended. Forensic psychiatrist Dana Harris and football legend, turned [...]


    4. I almost stopped reading this after a third, but kept at it and felt overall it was a pretty good story, but the writing style is far from scintillating. It reads like a newspaper, tells you what happens and doesn't create tension or stimulate curiosity. So it was just OK for me and I already forgot most of what it was about.


    5. Amazing, creepy, thrilling, touching, and every bit as great as the first book, which is something I rarely say for a second book in a Series! I love Lis and the way she writes and I seriously can’t wait to delve into #3 soon!!!!


    6. Will evil win this battle?I felt I was reading a Frank Perretti novel ! Wiehl has done it again ! Renaissance painting "Garden of Earthly Delights" is on display at St Adrian's School. Dani and Tommy have been invited to the exhibition but have an ulterior motive : to locate and download files from Dr. Ghieri's computer, the school psychologist , in an effort to pursue what caused Amos Kasden to kill Julie Leonard. But the painting does draw intrigue as it was commissioned by a pagan cult. Dani [...]


    7. When I requested this book from NetGalley, the blurb did not make it clear this was the second book in a series. If I had seen that, I may not have selected it, as I hate coming into a story part-way through.There certainly were some aspects of the plot that needed prior knowledge; although, luckily many were explained enough you could get by with just the bare minimum. I do feel I might have acquired a better sense of the characters if I had read their earlier story though.That said, I still fo [...]


    8. My ThoughtsThis was excellent! I do love a tale about good versus evil. I did not realized when I pick this up that it is book two of a trilogy. I don’t feel that not reading book one had any impact on my enjoying the story. I definitely want to go back and read the first book now.I liked both Dani and Tommy. The seemed real, had flaws and sometimes struggled with their faith. The story was suspenseful and it was hard to put down - oh that I was one of those people who can read all night and s [...]


    9. I listened to the audio version of this book. I was not sure if I was going to like it or not because horror is not a genre I normally read. I loved every minute of it. When I got done listening to it I really was like I want more. Give me more. That rarely happens with me. Loved it loved itPosted on my blog at bookreviewsandwallpaperss


    10. Ok - the second in the series; imho- got even better. Rich with Native American, Norwegian, Druid, and Christian History, this one pulls you in quickly and doesn't let go! I really wish there were a screenplay for this series! Ok, it's going down for real! Spoilers ! So don't read ahead if you don't like them! Even though one of the Angels warn us that one of the group is going to betray Dani or Tommy, sob! It does happen. And to one of my favorite people. :( But in the end we find out via anoth [...]


    11. Dani Harris thought there wasn’t much left that could surprise her after serving as a forensic psychiatrist in East Salem. And Tommy Gunderson has faced few challenges in his life that he couldn’t overcome by either physical strength or his celebrity status. But as they race to uncover what’s really happening behind the high walls of St. Adrian’s Academy, it becomes clear that supernatural forces have been at work here for generations. And now their focus is on making sure Dani and Tommy [...]


    12. This book is about good versus evil from a Christian viewpoint. It is the second book in a trilogy that I was unaware of when I picked it up. But because I started in the middle of the tale I don’t feel disadvantaged. There were explanations given in this narrative that filled in what I missed from book one. This story is filled with thrilling moments. Diabolical believable attacks that will have you pause a moment and take a second thought before drinking one’s tap water among other things. [...]



    13. I really wanted to like the book but I just had a hard time with it. Parts of it just weren't flowing for me and I got lost a few times.



    14. I recently recieved an ARC copy of Darkness Rising the second book in the East Salem Trilogy by author Lis Wiehl. Of course, before reading the second book I headed to my local library to check out the first book of the trilogy, Waking Hours. I enjoyed the first book so much that I was glad that I had the second book waiting to be read immediately. In this book we again find the main characters of Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson. In addition, we also get more of some of the other characters that [...]


    15. In East Salem, all hope is fading from view. The entire city is being overwhelmed by evil. An evil so piercing, so dark, and so heavy it is hard to uncover the truth behind St. Adrian’s academy. Through turmoil, misery, and an indwelling, Tommy Gunderson and Dani Harris fight to stop the lurking evil. But will they make it in time?I loved “Waking Hours,” the first book in the East Salem Trilogy. So, when I saw that this book had come out, I was overjoyed. I could hardly wait to receive it. [...]

    17. Title: Darkness Rising (East Salem Trilogy #2)Author: Lis Wiehl with Pete NelsonPages: 320Year: 2012Publisher: Thomas Nelson Darkness Rising continues the dark journey begun in the first book, Waking Hours. The story picks up right where the first novel left off. The setting is still modern day and in the small town of East Salem. Most of the main characters return in this story and we are introduced to several new characters, who it seems will be appearing in the third installment as well, Fina [...]


    18. Darkness Rising is book 2 in Lis Wiehl and Pete Nelson’s East Salem series. The action begins where Waking Hours left off. Filled with demons, this supernatural thriller definitely registers high on the creepy meter. If you like scary this one is for you. If not, I’d give it a pass.Dani Harris, a forensic psychiatrist, and Tommy Gunderson, ex-football player turned PI, continue to investigate the bizarre murder that has rocked the quaint town of East Salem, New York. Evidence mounts up impli [...]


    19. Darkness Rising by Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson is the second book in a series called The East Salem Trilogy, which started off with Waking Hours (see that review on my blog at hookofabook.wordpress). I absolutely enjoyed the first book, Waking Hours, as you can read in that previous review. The cover was also awesome! She/He really built up the suspense, the crime, had me guessing, and the characters were well-developed. I was really excited to see how the story continued in the second book.Thoug [...]


    20. The East Salem series begun with "Waking Hours" continues in the second installment, "Darkness Rising". Forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris and private investigator Tommy Gunderson continue in their race to uncover the truth of what's happening behind the walls of St. Adrian's Academy. As they delve ever deeper into the mysteries surrounding the school, they discover that the truth is far more encompassing than they thought, revealing supernatural forces at work that have been spreading their infl [...]


    21. Darkness Rising is the middle book in Lis Wiehl and Pete Nelson’s East Salem trilogy. Dani Harris is a forensic psychiatrist who serves as a consultant for the district attorney’s office in East Salem, NY. Tommy Gunderson, her boyfriend and would-be private eye, is a retired pro football player and owner of a local gym. Having solved a murder committed by a student at St. Adrian’s boarding school, they are now investigating the school itself. St. Adrian’s is having an exhibition of paint [...]


    22. I would probably go 2.5 stars if that were an option. It was somewhere between OK and I liked it, and remain uncertain as to which better decribes my enjoyment of this book. In it's defense it took me noticably longer to read this than I normally do. I normally read a book in a day or two, and this was over two weeks. That disjointed reading could quite easily be why I enjoyed it less than Lis Wiehl's other works.Dani and Tommy are back to continue solving the mystery/crime/supernatural reasons [...]


    23. Review At: I Read, I Think, I ShareReview Date: 27 September 2012Review URL: littlemermybooks/2012/09/darkness-rising-east-salem-trilogy-2-bymlSummary:I like the first book in this series very much. The writer is very good at creating suspense making it a page turner. In this book 2 of the series, the story continues where Waking Hours left off. In my opinion, it's ok to read book 2 without reading book 1, but I would still recommend to read book 1 to have better understanding on the back ground [...]


    24. The East Salem series begun with Waking Hours continues in the second installment, Darkness Rising. Forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris and private investigator Tommy Gunderson continue in their race to uncover the truth of what's happening behind the walls of St. Adrian's Academy. As they delve ever deeper into the mysteries surrounding the school, they discover that the truth is far more encompassing than they thought, revealing supernatural forces at work that have been spreading their influenc [...]


    25. Having read the first book, WAKING HOURS, I have to admit I sort of held my breath as I approached DARKNESS RISING because the first book barely touched the supernatural elements, which was a smidge disappointing. But fears be quieted! This book had an awesome supernatural thread–and I’m still a bit embarrassed at how giddy I got at the appearance of Swiss Army knives. . .with attachments. I’ll never look at a pocketknife the same way (you’ll have to read it to get that).Also, I thorough [...]


    26. I remember when I read Waking Hours, the first book in this trilogy, how much I loved it and couldn't put it down until I reached the end. So I was super excited about reading Darkness Rising, but it just wasn't great like the first one was. The story was good, but there was just something about it that felt off and I didn't care fort sure if it was the way the angels and demons were described, as I'm pretty sure they're close to the same way they were in the first book. Even though this book wa [...]

    28. After thoroughly enjoying the first book, Waking Hours, in this trilogy, I looked forward to continuing the story of Dani, Tommy, and the evil that is lurking in East Salem.For a trilogy, Lis Wiehl had trouble writing a smooth transition from Waking Hours to Darkness Rising. The story of Dani and Tommy continues, but as details from book 1 are incorporated in, the reader gets lost. The transition "flashbacks" continue into the middle of the book which seems a bit much. If you plan on reading thi [...]
