About the book (Goodreads):
Four Bestselling Authors Team Up for Thrilling Supernatural Suspense - Gathering four stories from four bestselling author friends, Invitation is the first collection in the ongoing Harbingers series. 

In "The Call" by Bill Myers, four strangers are drawn together to help a student at the mysterious Institute for Advanced Psychic Studies. His gifts are supposedly being honed to assist world leaders . . . but there are some very disturbing strings attached. 

Frank Peretti's "The Haunted" confronts a supernatural mystery, a case of murder, and an exploration into the darkness of the human heart, all centering around a mysterious house. 

In Angela Hunt's "The Sentinels," animals around the world are mysteriously dying. What could it mean? When the tragedy begins to touch Andi's dreams, she discovers a terrifying theory. 

"The Girl" by Alton Gansky is a gripping tale of a young barefoot girl found holding a scroll in the snowy Oregon mountains. She is sweet, innocent--apparently not of this world--and something wants to kill her.

My Thoughts:
This was unlike any other collection of novellas I've ever read. In this case, each novella builds on the previous one. Each one was told in first person. 

I was captivated immediately with this book. I've read books by these authors before, so I knew their writing styles. What I didn't expect to happen was that I was pulled completely into the book. The characters moved seamlessly from one novella to another. I cannot wait for the next installment of this series to come out. 

I received this book for free from the publisher for the purpose of providing my opinion. I was not compensated in any way for this book. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of Bill Myers, Angela Hunt, Frank Peretti, Alton Gansky, suspense

Rating - 5 stars
