Publisher's Summary

A devout secret society, a faithless courier, and a ruthless cult are about to face off over the fate of mankind and the power of God himself.

Meet Travis Rail, professional transporter of supernatural goods. Aside from his martial arts proficiency, skill behind the wheel, and solid track record of deliveries, what makes him qualified to do what he does is that he doesn't believe in the supernatural claims of his clients - which keeps him objective, honest, and detached.

Or so he thought.

When his latest client has him transport a chest containing something allegedly touched by Jesus, his world gets turned upside down. Not 20 minutes into the delivery the Rift show up - an underground cult hell-bent on collecting all of the treasures of God. However, it turns out that not only were they after the chest, they were after Travis as well.

Who exactly are the Rift? Why do they want him dead? And is what he's transporting truly of Jesus?

In his quest for answers, Travis is reluctantly thrust into another delivery, transporting yet another one of God's treasures. And the closer he gets to completing this delivery, the more he learns that what he's delivering might just be bigger than the package itself.

    Story
    "Mostly-solid first entry"

    I didn't realize when I picked up this book that it was written by an author I had just finished listening to in "Nightmares in Analog". I enjoyed that collection on the whole, so was even more excited to give this story a listen.

    I wasn't disappointed. This tale seems to be the first entry in a series about a transporter of holy goods who doesn't really buy into the fact that the goods are holy. Only, it's not that he believes in God, it's more like he believes that if there is a God, he pretty much sucks.

    With this background in place, the author begins to weave a sort of coming of age tale where we see our once-resentful protagonist learn to embrace the God he shunned. In doing so, he begins to accept gifts granted to him and learn what his purpose truly is.

    It's a decent mix of sci-fi/supernatural with a dash of religion. For those of you not religious (I'm not), don't worry: this book isn't preachy to the point of being annoying. For those of you who are, I don't believe the author crosses into anything blasphemous or offensive (though, as I said, I'm not religious, so take that into account).

    I did have a few qualms however. The story is told in the current first-person perspective. This is simlar to the tales in "Nightmares in Analog", but since this was a full-length novel, my personal annoyances with it were a bit more pronounced. The "stream of consciousness" style of writing can seem a bit meandering, repetitive and sometimes annoying. Not enough to ruin the story, but just enough to notice.

    Also, on the story front, our hero kept seeming to get himself in ridiculous situations only to need to be bailed out in some fashion. Sure the author was likely setting him up to fail so that he could excel once he embraces who he is, but I found myself wondering, more than once, why someone so pathetic was the focus of the story.

    The ending, of course, sets the stage for future stories which I think I'll check out. I'm cautiously optimistic on where this is headed.

    The narrator did a pretty decent job, though during conversations many of his voices (especially females) sounded too much like shouting for my tastes.

    I was provided this audio book for free in exchange for a fair review. My thoughts are my own.

    "Meh"

    Not sure what audience this was to appeal to ? Devout Christians unlikely as they holy are oddly portrayed, the agnostics? Not very convincing. Too many respective action sequences.

    Blah

    "capturing winding incline!"

    A well written story that is creative, visual, and draws the reader into the story. I love the consistent references to the "good" book's principles. A winding road of mystery filled with action that grabs the reader and takes you on an steady anticipated incline. Fools the reader's assumption. Strongly recommended!
    Great narration, distinctive voice inflection and great separation of emotion and timing.

    "An amazing read"

    This book was an amazing and easy read. If you like the DaVinci code you'll love this series. The best way to describe it is "The DaVinci code" meets "the maze runner". The book kept me interested the whole entire time. I can't wait for the next one in this series to come out.

    "A great ride!"

    This is a well paced tale. Well envisioned scenes tell the story of a dark hero. Plenty of action to enjoy. There is just enough humor to keep you in through the tension and moments of gore. It is a great escape that starts with a great escape.

    "Loved it!"

    The narrator for this book was a little flat, but the content and story more than make up for it! Suspenseful and thrilling it leaves me wanting to know what happens next! Kudos to the author!

    "Unsure how I feel about this one..."

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    So, I finished this book and, even after some reflection, I don't know how I feel about it. The story held my interest all the way through, and I thought the narration was decent. I just don't know how I felt about the religious aspects of this book. I legitimately find myself unsure of what else to say about this book... Some parts resonated with my own struggles with faith... but other parts felt like I was being beaten over the head with God... Anyway, if you are as disenfranchised with organized religion as I am, I'm not sure if you'd like this one. I gave it 4 stars for that very reason. It left me kind of thoughtful and it WAS entertaining... I know this probably isn't very helpful to people reading my review, but I strive to be honest in my reviews.

    Story
    "Interesting premise, but couldn't hold my interest"

    I have to admit that I am not a fan of the supernatural, but the allure that it somehow intertwined itself with Jesus and possibly some semblance of redemption (at least according to the synopsis) piqued my interest. Quite frankly, there did not seem to be enough of any of those three topics to determine what audience this work is best suited for. There is plenty of action and supernatural occurrences (i.e. a nemesis that seems to multiply), but they seem to be rather repetitive. As for the possible Christian content/connection, it was pretty marginal to say the least. Again, perhaps that was not the intent of the author, but if it was it really comes up short beyond the premise of good versus evil.

    All in all I found myself easily distracted while listening to this story and never had the urge to rewind to see what I missed. The seemingly never ending car chase and related confrontations as a result wore thin. As my heading stated, the premise for this story sounded interesting and maybe the books to follow will capitalize on that possibility. That being said; Book 1 of the Travis Rail Series just did not work for me.

    I will add that the narrator, Chris Rice, did a fine job in my opinion. A review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.
