A very good first attempt

I enjoyed reading this book. Initial drafts will always have some issues that can be corrected during revisions. But the plot and the setting (meant for young children) was quite engaging and there is enough tension in the narrative to keep the reader moving on to the next chapter.
I look forward to reading the revised version of this story.

Ready for publication

I tend not to focus on the genre. If the characters are believable and the setting realistic, the rest takes care of itself. And from the very first chapters of this novel, I knew the way the characters and the world I was getting into worked.
Barry has a great sense of timing and sinks the hooks in at just the right times, as he does with how the mystery is gradually unraveled.
I don't see why this should not be a published book already. I am lucky to have gotten in early and be able to read it for free.

A page-turner

What I liked best about this book is how smoothly the prose flows. I almost flew through the opening chapters. The story unraveled in episodes and never veered into dullness. The plot kept me guessing until almost the very end after which, I could not wait to get to the end to find out how things end. Definitely a fun read.

Masterful handling of a difficult topic

The reason I started reading this book after reading the blurb is because I wanted to see how the author dealt with such a loaded topic. I was not disappointed. It asks a very simple question: what would happen if the second-coming were to come to pass during your life? Would you be a believer or a skeptic?
It would have been very easy to push too far when writing about such a delicate topic, but that is not the case here. What I loved best about this book is that the author does not give in to preaching or proselytizing, or the opposite. Jaio, the 'prophet', is more interested in talking to and empathizing with and guiding the world. Instead of making miracles happen. There is nothing grandiloquence in the pages of this book. What we have instead are surprisingly diverse, yet familiar cast of characters and most of their character-arcs are beautifully written.
I enjoyed reading this. And once my to-read list gets smaller, I will come back and read more from the author.
