I have read all of Frank Peretti books. This is the first of his books that I have listened too. He is my favorite Christian Fiction writter and this novel was his best. Having the author narrate was a very special bonus.
I loved the comments at the end. They made me understand the deeper meaning of the story. I've never read anything like that. The voice - I had to get used to it. It didn't make Mandy's voice sound like a girl's. That's why I'm giving it a four star.
everything was awesome style the plot the mystery it was all very intriguing thanks mr. Perritti
I found this novel to be rather slow moving and odd. The story line unfolds slowly, which is fine to build interest and suspense but it felt belabored. The story line that develops between an older man and very young (sort of) woman is strange. If a person has an interest in magic, that might be a draw, but it did not build an interest in me as someone who does not enjoy magic-type entertainment. The reading was good, except the woman's voices which came across as childish. It's still not clear to me exactly what happened to bring about the resolution at the end, but it wasn't worth going back to tease out. Clean storyline, which I appreciate, but I had a hard time getting on board with this one.
Sci-fi story of a romance that defies time, mystery, death, and conspiracy, brought me to tears as it so aptly describes the love between my own husband and myself. A thrilling mystery with a surprise twist and ending, I deem this one of my favorite love stories of "all time".
I absolutely love this book. When I started listening to the book, I was so enraptured in the storytelling and the characters that within a day and a half I finished. Frank Peretti has always struck me as a very talented fiction novelist, but I always thought that he was exclusively stuck in the realm of thriller/semi-horror novels. I was completely, and pleasantly taken by surprise as he injected a love story, magic, and other previously untouched themes into this book. picking a favorite moment in this book would be a disservice to the completeness of the story. I very highly recommend anybody seeking a good fiction novel, whether Christian or otherwise, to buy the hardback or audio version of this book and truly enjoy Frank Peretti at his finest.
The love between Dane and Mandy was very engaging, but it felt like Peretti was forcing a Christian message on to the story just to have it there even though it didn't really fit. His early novels ("This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness") dealt with Christian themes like spiritual warfare. So there the Christian message made sense but this was primarily a sci-fi love story. It was still a good story. He is a great story teller.
