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.
Frank Peretti leads the reader in this dance. A well paced adventure with multiple surprises. Though far reaching fantasy, the story seems plausible.
All written stories must end. This journey, I wanted to continue. Great book.
Totally wierd story. Had some trouble with Peretti 's portrayal of the female characters. Still trying to get my mind around the ending. Peretti is a great story teller.
Listening to this was more work than pleasure. It's a toned down Harlequin romance novel encountering science fiction. It has countless hours of anti-climactic, cliffhanger type vignettes. The author states that it's really about the Holy Spirit and Christ's love, etc., however the only sequence involving serious prayer is when a group of atheists, agnostics and materialistic non-believers say a prayer with two "Christians" for a successful Vegas show. In fact, one of the main "Christian" characters uses his money to set himself up in what sounds to be an extravagant, multi-million dollar mansion, complete with a full-time servant. Nice, Frank!
Something really Christian in nature.
I think all characters acted fundamentally the same. They were all motivated by self interest even at the detriment of others.
I would isolate the main storyline to make it a 10 minute read.
No a Peretti style as one could expect, but all the more fun to listen and to and see how it boggles your mind as to what kind of outcome there could be. Magic, Sci-Fi, Love, Crime, Thriller would be my summery. Enjoy the book!
