The Vessels is an engaging work of fiction in the supernatural and thriller sub-genres and was penned by author Anna M. Elias. This is an exciting and conceptual work which concerns spirits in Limbo in the afterlife who wished to return to the earthly world for a shot at redemption. Four volunteers in North America join the VESSELS program in order for spirits to inhabit their bodies and take seven days to try to right their past wrongs. But when the spirit of a serial killer enters one such vessel with a very different plan in mind, the story takes a series of sharp and unexpected turns and a true race for survival begins.
Author Anna M. Elias has crafted a serial killer thriller novel like nothing I’ve ever read before. In the first instance, this is a unique conceptual premise, set up by including such powerful yet believable supernatural elements, and the realism put into the contextualization for the VESSELS program and its hidden facility in Reno makes you feel as though this is a real instance which could be happening today. On top of that, Elias develops strong characters that are fully realized: both the vessels themselves and the spirits who inhabit them are given deep emotional traits and stories which readers can relate to and empathize with. Combining this with a tense serial killer plot produces a high quality and unputdownable novel, and overall I would highly recommend The Vessels to any supernatural thriller fan looking for their next captivating read.
