Wayward Son

The first novel in a series, the Wayward Son propels the reader back in time - all the way back to the days of Cain and Abel - and sends the reader on an epic adventure through the flood of Noah's time, through Egypt, Greece, China and Rome.  And it all begins with a powerful tremor that unearths an ancient secret buried in a fortified observatory buried near Italy's Mt. Vesuvius.  
You can go HERE to read the prologue and the first 12 chapters.  But, will be ordering the book!

The Wayward Son is a masterful blend of suspense, history, modern day drama and a very unique and fictionalized twist on the story of Cain from the Bible.  Pollack, Alves, and Loftus (the authors) do an amazing job of making you feel as if you are standing before the 30 feet high bronze doors with Amanda as she attempts to decipher the the combination of pictograms and texts written in Latin, Greek, Aramaic, Chinese and Hebrew.  When the doors open...well, you'll just have to read to find out!

The story does go back and forth between modern-day and the past; however, the writing is so well done that you just keep turning pages!  I thought the publishing move to have the typeset of the chapters covering modern day and chapters covering past events different was genius.  I can't wait to read the next installment of this series.

You can order the book by going HERE or from by going HERE.

Wayward Son was provided to me by Glass Road Publications for the purpose of review.

Happy Reading,
