Review – Guarding the Healer by Gabriel Beyers

I couldn’t put this one down until I had finished it.  Okay, well, two sessions.  As soon as I put something here I’ve got to go to Amazon and give it a thumbs up.

A haunting tale that starts with a run and doesn’t let up very much until it ends.  A tale of good and evil.  Written in a voice very reminiscent of Frank Peretti’s Piercing This Darkness.  Yes – that’s right angels.  And also conjures up memories of Ted Dekker’s Blessed Child.  That’s right a healer.  Not a very willing one either.

I won’t let loose any spoilers here.  But this is not a book for your run of the mill Ted Dekker tale.  It is horror gory and cusses like a sailor at times, but don’t we all?  That just adds to the human tension that a book like this would have to make to resonate with us normal Christians.

Silas Walker has to endure the severity of skepticism.  No one understands, of course it doesn’t help to be connected to an anti-healer that follows him everywhere reeking of destruction.

The scenes run together seamlessly, even when the scene is retold through the eyes of a different character.

You can get your copy at Amazon.  Follow the author on twitter!

SIDE NOTE: Don’t worry, it’s not an affiliate tag, Amazon has kicked me out of their little club because they don’t want to pay Arkansas Sales Tax.  Kinda leaves me between two giants with lots of money, and taking my pay check at every chance.

 

ANYWAY, I wasn’t going to climb on a soap box about Amazon.  This is a review about an awesome book.

Well done Gabriel, Looking forward to more.
