  • Book Description: 

    The lack of faith Sam carried with him for years had never given him reason to pause, not even for a moment, until tragedy on a rain-slick road rearranged his life, and his son’s, permanently. As Sam drudges through life as a widower and single parent, concepts form that lead him to believe the tragedy of a few months prior may not have been an accident, but instead a design of fate he had somehow evaded.

    As everyday life revolves around him, Sam begins to experience ominous events pointing to the reality of what might have been… his own death. Eventually, Sam’s lack of faith is exchanged for fear as he concludes that it is not his life that is in jeopardy but quite possibly his soul. With guidance from a close friend of the family, Sam journeys south to a city known for its passion of the supernatural and occult. There he finds a more menacing presence that throws his being into chaos and threatens the very lives of the people around him.”

    My Thoughts:

    This was an interesting read. Somewhat reminiscent of The Sixth Sense, it revolves around a father and his son both experiencing a sixth sense. It touches on the supernatural, on faith or lack of faith in religion, loss, and re-learning how to live after a huge loss and finding out that you’ve been changed on an elemental inner level.

    I liked the story, the characters and the conflicts and resolution. Personally, I felt that the transitions from scene to scene could have used a bit of work and there were some small mistakes that could have been fixed with editing, but overall it didn’t affect the story much. (I’m just a nit-picker about that stuff). I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories that are similar to The Sixth Sense or is a fan of ghosts and the supernatural. It was a good read!
