Length: 139 pages

The small town of Refuge is the perfect hideaway for Patrick Lahm and the Freys. Nestled in the heart of Maine and miles away from the Kurtain Motel, Refuge promises both tranquility and ease of mind. The mundane routine of working in the local post office and buying groceries is all Patrick could hope for. For the first time in his life, things are finally looking up.

But one can only escape from his sins for so long. Occasional nightmares, visions of the dead and a priest hell-bound on confessions leave the survivors feeling that it is only a matter of time before the darkness catches up. With Jimmy by his side, Patrick watches as the walls of reality crumble around him, and he quickly realizes that there can be no rest for the sinful.

No matter how far they run.

    I bought the kindle version of the book and I must say I really enjoy the series. The story continues where it left off at Kurtain Motel, with Patrick Lahm and the Frey family, living their lives, however a beautiful twist to the story that makes it quite suspenseful. I really recommend people to read the series. Good thing I read it a bit late, this way I didn’t have to wait long for the third book to come out 😀

    A great sequel to the Kurtain Motel. Most of the characters are back which at first confused me but it all eventually came together. I wasn’t sure how the author could make this book better than Kurtain Motel, which I loved, but he succeeded. Now on to Purgatory…

    Review: REFUGE by A. I. Nasser(THE SIN #2)In my review of the first in this trilogy, KURTAIN MOTEL, I raved about how enjoyable and imaginative a story it is. REFUGE keeps the bar high. Those of our characters who escaped the Kurtain Motel find asylum and a settled home in Refuge, Maine, a seemingly pleasant small community where everything is just fine. Or is it?? With Rev. Clancy and his constant “confession” harping (he makes Sinclair Lewis’s Reverend Dr. Elmer Gantry look like an angel) and the commencement of unending revelations, protagonist Patrick Lahm and his cohorts remain on the edge of destruction. REFUGE continues the same heart-in-mouth thrill ride of KURTAIN MOTEL.

    I purchased and read this 2nd in series book in June, and given audiobook in September by Scare Street (THANK YOU) it is so much better to listen too. I love horror and ghosts stories. Loved the characters of Patrick, Jimmy and Connor, there is other old characters and couple of new ones. This book continues after Patrick, Jimmy and Tara escapes Kurtain Motel and decides to stay in quaint town of Refuge, Maine then terror starts after 6 mos. where you need to confess to your sins and Tara is taken. This book was suspenseful, scary, creepy and thrilling better than the Slaughter series. Recommend to anyone who enjoys horror/supernatural books, onto last book.

    Patrick, Jimmy and his mom, barely escaped the Kurtain Motel with their lives and went on the run from the Sin eater. They found a tiny town called Refuge, and it seemed perfect for them. But nothing is as it seems and Patrick’s normal life is about to come crashing down again!!Now this was some seriously twisty read. The plot was awesome!!! We start with seeing Patrick having a good life. He is working in the Post Office and life is good, but the priest gives him the creeps and seems to be obsessed with getting people to “confess”. Something about this seems very familiar to Patrick but he isn’t sure what. Meanwhile we get glimpses back into the Kurtain Motel. Initially this is a little confusing but it starts to come together and you find your mind blown. I really didn’t see that coming!!!Again, we have the same characters with others thrown in, but this time it felt like we got more debt to them and got to know them a little better. They were more developed and I was able to become more invested in them. Plus I liked getting to know Jimmy more!! I was also so happy to see Patrick live a good, happy life. He has grown on me and I was rooting for him!!In all, this was an awesome read. I loved the setting and how mysterious and intriguing Refuge and the people were. The twist was great too and I can not wait to see what happens next!!Thom Bowers did a better job with this one because the majority of the story revolves around Patrick and Jimmy. He brought the characters and atmosphere to life and knows how to tell a creepy tale!I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    I received this book as a gift from the publisher (Audiobook edition).Refuge is the second of three books in The Sin series and continues the story from Kurtain Motel. Patrick Lahm manages to escape from the Kurtain Motel and finds himself in the Town of Refuge. While he believes he is free and clear of the horrors he left behind, things begin to go south for him. He sees people in town that he clearly remembers seeing being killed at the motel. A hellfire and brimstone preacher in town has more power than he should have. Things just don’t add up.Along with Jimmy Frey, who also escaped the motel with his mother (or so we are led to believe), Patrick seeks answers and a way to escape from Refuge. As the story progresses, more secrets are revealed and we are soon taken on a wild ride with Patrick and Jimmy as they attempt their escape.I strongly suggest that you read this series in order. Otherwise there will be too much confusion. Refuge is every bit as creepy as Kurtain Motel and I can’t wait to begin the final chapter of this series.
