Publisher's Summary

All they wanted was a child. They never expected this.

A childless couple. An adoption specialist. A little girl with a secret. A young boy with unimaginable powers. A scientist with an over-inflated ego. And an elderly psychic who knows the truth.

In the fall of 2002, Claire and Logan adopt five-year-old Samantha and welcome her into their home. But then strange and incredible things begin to happen. The Kellers are unwittingly pulled into an unfathomable world of deception, power, and suspense. They find themselves on the run from an unseen force, searching for answers while trying to stay alive. What they find waiting for them is both shocking and unforgettable.

Hated it

I expected something like a Dean Koontz novel, but storyline just veered off the rails.

Frankly, I found it terrible. Even in science fiction, there has to be a level of plausibility for the story to work. Things need to make sense and elements still need to fit together, even within the fantasy environment. You can’t just create a ridiculous premise and expect readers to get on board with fantastical storylines just because it’s sci-fi.

The characters had no depth, the interaction between the individuals was not natural, conversations were ludicrous at times (example: “I made an appointment with the doctor for 10 o’clock”, “in the morning?”, “no, at night, silly!”) and the developments of peoples’ concerns over matters was in hyper-drive.

I only made it to the end because I was not in the mood to read anything else.

Just awful!

The story is poorly written. The dialogue is stilted and the narration unnatural. Don’t waste your time or money.

Badly written, Badly Narrated

Do they even audition these narrator's This is one of the worst I've listened to. Probably not that bad of a book but writing is poor. The dialogue is very unnatural and preaching.
