Thriller In The First Degree,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Eternity Falls (a Rick Macey Cyberthriller Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
If you like superheroes, action and good plot lines then this book is for you.
Although a fan of Marcher Lord Press books I was unsure what to expect from
Eternity Falls. The description sounded hokey to me so I figured it was a
grocery store rack book with little to offer. Was I ever wrong! In fact I liked
the book so much I ordered the sequel "The Tenth Crusader" before finishing this
Kirk has proven himself to be a wonderful storyteller and quite a good writer
(although his website hasn't been updated since the days when Al Gore first
invented the Internet). The story moves along at a good speed and for those rare
down-times it doesn't waste a bunch of words just for filler. There is a
sub-plot love story going on but I found it unbelievable (think unlikeable
Margot Kidder in Superman) along with its missionary dating philosophy. Overall
the book was exciting and fast paced. Lots of fun to read.
The question the book tackles is one we most likely will never have to deal with
but interesting to tackle just the same. If medical science progressed to the
point of allowing man to live as long as they would like, would that be a good
thing for us? What about our view of God and eternity? Would we lose our fear of
God and rely on man for our salvation? This and many questions are tackled but
it never gets preachy or long-winded.
With interesting and likeable characters, fast-paced storyline and interesting
dialogue Eternity Falls is a great read. Due to some sexual references and
violence I'd read it before giving to a teenager (unless your child is
government schooled then this would be nothing new). It's never overly graphic
and there is no fowl language.
So when is someone going to pick up the movie rights?

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let
me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those
who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book
because it's already given at the top of the home page. I find in doing so
too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.
