Sarah has a large family, seven kids in all, but life is only good for a short time before something evil appears in the woods near her home. Sarah has the ability to recognize it, although no one else does, because she comes from a long line of women with a gift, or curse. She is able to receive visions, which to her have been as much of a curse as a gift. The evil that moved into the woods seems to focus on Sarah's family, and she doesn't understand why, and even the visions that she has showing her the past, she is unable to understand and connect to her family until the very end. She is sure that the evil wants her and that to get rid of it, she would have to sacrifice herself. Evil Stalks the Night is a complex tale of unleashing evil and it following a person through lives, taking its revenge over and over again. Author Kathryn Meyer Griffith weaves a well developed and multilayered story that is complex and compelling.
While Evil Stalks the Night focuses on the evil and Sarah, there is also her brother, Jimmy, whom she is very close to that plays a big part in the story. The more the story goes on, the more you realize that Jimmy has more and more to do with the evil. Even her younger brother, Charlie, who had his own problems in life, turns out to be a help in death. The things you think about people aren't always what you think they are, and they surprise you in the end. Author Kathryn Meyer Griffith has written a detailed and well developed story. Although there is no sex in the book there are a number of deaths, and although they are not described in detail, they are inferred to be quite gory. Therefore I would recommend this to adult readers.
