WHERE IS JUSTINE BISHOP?
AND WHY DID SHE
ABANDON HER CHILDREN?
Thomas Kent is determined to find out. Asked to pick up a “package” at the airport by an old friend he barely remembers, Thomas is shocked when he finds two desperate children looking to him for help. As he's reluctantly drawn into the murderous plot of a ruthless cult, Thomas is forced to come face-to-face with his own tortuous guilt over the tragic loss of his family and faith. Why does the cult so desperately want the kids? Their mother, Justine Bishop, holds the key. He just has to find her . . . or die trying.
This was one intense edge-of-your-seat ride!
Unseen is action and adventure at its best, it really has everything it takes to keep you biting your nails from one page to the next. When I read it I couldn't seem to put the book down, I HAD to know what came next.
In some ways Unseen reminded me a bit of a Ted Dekker book. I really liked the stark sense of good and evil. The choice of standing by, minding your own business, and thus letting evil triumph, or sticking your neck out to do what deep down you know is right, even when it hurts and is dangerous. Another thing, very similar, that I liked was the sense that no matter how dark things appear good will triumph. Even when we have apparently lost God still has the victory, and sometimes we might get to see it.
This Book earned a 4 Bark rating.
Totally new to this author's books but I have to say that I am hooked good. I will definitely be interested in reading more of James Pence's books.
If you like what I would call thrillers, and this reader is enjoying them more and more, with plenty of daring and danger, I would highly recommend Unseen as your next read.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives Unseen by James Pence a 4 Bark rating.
