It’s the 3rd week of the month again, which means it’s time for the CSFF Blog tour reviews. The book for March is “The Resurrection”, by Mike Duran.
So due to many events, including a road trip to Reno for a wedding and having guests from out of state, not to mention a lot of lost sleep (which I am now mentioning) I was not able to finish the book in time for a full review. I also missed out on an opportunity to get a review copy of next month’s book, so I will probably not be participating in the April tour.
However, I did read the 1st 1/3rd of March’s “The Resurrection”.
The beginning of the book was hard for me to get past, mostly because I thought the book would just be furthering the false idea that the miraculous gifts, those given to the apostles & to the people they passed them on to, have not yet passed into a thing of history. However I know that one does not have to believe that doctrine in order to write a fiction novel utilizing these gifts, so I read on.
As I read on I found that the book was slowly drawing me in. More and more mysterious elements are slowly added, and they gave me reason to try to guess what was coming next. The more I wonder, the further I’m being drawn into the book.
About 1/3 of the way into the book there seems to be a shift in the pace of the plot starting up. It appears like there is going to be more action happening, a few more mysteries, and some of the answers are finally beginning to be revealed. There are, however, plenty of questions to be answered.
I’m looking forward to finishing the book. However, considering some of the elements so far, I don’t know yet who I would or would not recommend the book to.
