I recently recieved a copy of this book (a link will follow this post) and would like to share my thoughts about it with you.
The first impression I got when looking at this book was that the front cover looked interesting, enough to make me flip the book over and take a look at the blurb on the back to see if I wanted to continue this journey with the book.
Thats where things got a little hairy. I like sci-fi-fantasy books, mystery books, christian romance (by that I mean romance books without the junk and garbage that is basically porn without pictures that is so prevalent today), and a few select suspense books. I say a few select because I have a very vivid imagination and alot of suspense/thriller books are scary to me! I might be a chicken, but if a book is going to be scary, I might read it. That is not to say that I dont enjoy scary parts in the book, but I don’t enjoy creepy books. Whew, now that that is said, I was not sure after reading the blurb on the back that I wanted to continue, but while it made me a little nervous to read it, it also piqued my curiousity just enough that I wanted to see where the adventure of reading this book would take me.
I am only a short ways into the book, and I am not disappointed that I decided to continue the reading.
More impressions of the book, are: The map in the front of the book was hard to distinguish and see what it was supposed to be. If I see a map, I want to be able to read it and see whats going on it in.
Next was: I LOVED walking into the middle of a conversation on the first page of the book. I have started writing my own book and have used that exact type of introduction, so that earned bonus points in my book.
To top all of that off, I was super excited to read a book by ANY Lawhead, but I am starting to really look forward to Ross Lawhead’s books.
I am looking forward to see where the rest of the book will take me, look for more posts to follow concerning the contents of the book.
As always, I am pretty sure that In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
