Thomas Nelson Nightmare Academy, Volume #2, The Veritas Project

The Veritas Project is their code name--but only a handful of people know teens Elijah and Elisha Springfield have been covertly commissioned by the President to investigate strange mysteries that delve into the paranormal and supernatural. Their charge is to find out not only what happened, but why--the veritas (Latin for truth) behind the seemingly impossible phenomena.Welcome to their nightmare case . . . He was once a normal fifteen-year-old boy. But that teen and that life have become . . . nothing. His whole mind seems to have been erased.Now he only stares into space and whispers two ominous words . . . Nightmare Academy. And the only way to solve the case is for Elijah and Elisha to step inside his nightmare.

Review by Gretchen HoffmanA fifteen-year-old boy shows up along a highway interstate. He doesnt know his name, how to dress himself, and has no memory of whats happened to him. He simply repeats the words, Nightmare Academy.This is when teenage detectives Elijah and Elisha come into play. They go undercover as runaways where the boy and his friend were last seen before their disappearance. The twins are quickly headed on the right track, but things change when they too disappear. They investigate the going-ons but are unable to contact anyone from where they are. But once they find out whats really happening, will they have a chance to escape and save themselves?Peretti is a master storyteller with mystery novels, and this one is no exception. This book is a little darker than some of his other novels, and while its good, it is a bit creepy. I read this book when it first came out, and the one scene where Elijah quotes the Ten Commandments has stuck in my mind ever since. This is one of those books thats intriguing, discusses some deep ideas, and will stick in your mind long after youve read it. If youre a Peretti fan, have read book one in the series, or are into mysteries, this is one for you.

The Veritas Project is a must read!! Nightmare Academy was a book you could not put down. The first few pages of the book started out with an interst and story line you wanted to keep reading until you finish the book. I highly recommend !!!!

This book is written for teens. I am an adult and I couldn't put it down once I started to read it. Both of the books in this series keep you on the edge of your seat. This book though is one that you just can't stop reading until Elijah and Elisha and the Springfield's have solved the mystery.

This book had an interesting plot that provided several twists. The author does a great job in pulling you right into the story.The ending was intense and it was impossible to put the book down till I found out what happened.

This is one of my favorite books! It is very exciting and mysterious and it has a great message. It teaches the importance of the ten commandments and how horrible the world would be if there were no right or wrong. It's not too scary at all! At first I thought this book might be too scary, but my mom bought it for me because I decided that I'd give it a try. Now she is out shopping and she plans to buy me the Hangman's Curse soon. She also bought me Bill Myer's, Deadly Loyalty Collection (which is also awesome)! Anyway, this book is great, so I think you should get it!

This was a wonderfull book...Along with Hangman's curse, of course. It was filled with suspense, and the two main characters are very loveable. I can't wait for the next book in the Veritas project!

Frank Peretti is a very talented author and has proven that once again. After reading Hangman's Curse I couldn't wait until the next book in this series came out. When I got Nightmare Academy I was disappointed. A good read for teens but also for adults that need something to fill a little time. Next book please...
