The Occupied by Craig Parshall is a fun little read that makes you wonder about the people you pass on the street. And to be completely honest, not always in a good way.
Trevor Black has a gift. One he didn’t ask for but he is now using to his advantage, well if he can stay alive long enough to use it for good. He can smell a demon who is hiding in a human and because of that gift they are on the hunt for him. They involve him in a series of murders that lead back to his home town.
In some aspects this book was a bit creepy, but there was nothing about it that made me lose any sleep. But overall I really did enjoy this book. It wasn’t one I couldn’t lay down, but it did make me want to return to it every time. I wanted to know what was happening to Trevor and the murder mystery was a fun read and who the actual bad guy was. Craig did a good job hiding the answer to that puzzle. I had several guesses before I settled on who it was and why.
I think this is one of those books that older teens could easily read and it would be a great way to open discuss on things of the occult and how easily it is to fall down that path.
I am interested in what Craig next book in the Trevor Black series will be about.
