Deadly Road - Tara Neideffer

Deadly Road -
Tara Neideffer
4 Stars
What happens when the dead seek revenge?

After a night out with friends turns bad, Lizzie drives home upset, exhausted, and a little tipsy. She ends up making a terrible mistake that leaves her with a dark, disturbing secret.

She is traumatized by what she's done and desperately wants to find a way to make amends with her wrong doing. She soon becomes surrounded by an evil she never knew could exist, and finds help from a dying woman in hospice.

This series of events make her realize that everything in life happens for a reason, and sometimes you have to search the darkness for the answers.
My Review:
Talk about hitting the ground running, Deadly Road started off with one of the most serious mistakes a person can ever make and a test of their morals. When the accident happened, knocking over Lizzie's once controlled world into a living nightmare the horror of her choice floods her dreams with savage wild coyotes and flickering ghosts.

Neiderffer had done a wonderful job bringing forth the terror of Lizzie's mind, having her question her reality as the images of the man she killed started to appear during her waking hours. It's a scary thought to really think about what you would do if you are put into her shoes, even after considering herself such a high morale person, to leave a body in the middle of the woods is a serious decision. Poor Lizzie panicked in the split moment that her world came unfolded and now she is tormented again and again for it. Even despite her faults Lizzie was a really likable and strong character.

For a bit i couldn't understand what the little girl had to do with the story, but obviously as the story progressed so did the truth behind the pair come into light. It was a very enjoyable read!
