Jana Deleon uses imagery more than any other writing technique in her books. I believe she does this in order to grab the readers attention and to give them a clear understanding of whats really going on in the book, so that they don't walk away with unanswered questions. In the book sinister, she grabs the readers attention by giving them a sense of false hope on the suspenseful journey in order to figure what was really going on.
I really enjoyed reading the part two, to the Shaye Archer series because its that type of book were you don't wanna put it down, all you wanna do it read to the next chapter to figure out what happened in the previous one. The book engages the reader by painting an image in the readers head in order to make them feel though as if they are really there in the book with the characters.
The theme of the book is suspense. Throughout the book there is constant suspense to know what happens next. Jana Deleon did a good job in incorporating this theme into her book because when theres suspense, the readers bound to know happens next. The main question that i had wondered while reading this book, was whether or not Hustle was ever gonna see his friend Jinx again, but you'll have to read the book to find out.
