My Review

Terry does a good job of building suspense in this short novella. Those who have read the books featuring Kennedy Stern will be happy to find this one is from the viewpoint of free spirited Willow, Kennedy's college roommate. They will remember having read of this adventure in one of the novels featuring Kennedy. Willow tells her story of the terror while on a flight. It is almost like she is sitting across the table from us, sharing her memory of the experience with random interrupting thoughts.

Terry is not afraid to have her characters express opinions. Here, Willow gives us her mind on environmental issues and whether Christians have to vote for a certain kind of candidate or whether they can check the other guy's box.

I enjoyed this quick read (well under 100 pages). Willow delaying her telling of the actual suspenseful events seemed a little like dragging out the story. Other than that, a good novella for young adult or career age readers containing a clear spiritual message.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

I’m excited to share my new Turbulent Skies Christian Thriller novella series with all of you! The inspiration behind this series came when I was taking a flight a few years ago … and indulging in one of my favorite past times – people watching! As I looked at the various passengers around me, I started to wonder about their lives … and it was from that line of thinking this novella series was born!
I first wrote a book about a terrifying experience on board an airplane years earlier, (Turbulence, Book #5 in the Kennedy Stern series) and because many members of my amazing Readers’ Club had been asking me to write a book featuring Willow, one of their favorite characters from the Kennedy Stern series, it seemed fitting that Willow gets to be the star in the first of these novellas.
Terror in the Skies is Willow’s story. She’s a chic Alaskan college student, a free spirit who finds herself sharing a dorm room with a conservative Christian missionary kid. Willow first makes her appearance in the Kennedy Stern Christian suspense series, meaning that over a hundred thousand readers have met her!
I can’t tell you too much about this life-of-the-party aspiring actress (mostly because I don’t want to spoil anything for you if you happen to still be making your way through the Kennedy Stern books). But I can tell you she is the first main character in this six-book novella series that helps answer the question: “Who are you really sitting next to hundreds of feet up in the air?”
Maybe, like me, after reading this series, you’ll never look at your fellow passengers the same way!

I'm so glad you enjoyed Terror in the Skies. If you're interested in what happens to five other passengers on the same flight, the story continues with Refined by Fire.
