Joseph Finley is a writer of historical fantasy fiction. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife, daughter, and two rescue dogs. He also posts regularly at Fresh-scraped Vellum (fresh-scrapedvellum.blogspot.com), a blog devoted to historical and fantasy fiction. God saw fit to make him Irish, at least in part, so he comes honestly by his fondness for the Irish and their medieval monks. Enoch's Device is his debut novel.

From the first few pages, I was hooked. It starts out as a traditional historical fiction (because of the 10th century monks, it reminded me of "Pillars of the Earth"), but along with the main character, Ciaran, you soon realize that things are not always what they seem. Monks, Biblical mystery, myths and legends, and even a minor love storyline--this book really had it all!
It's a wonderful stand-alone novel, but also sets up for a sequel/series!
The descriptions are so vivid that I found myself visualizing the scenes as if they were in a movie - one with outstanding visual effects. In fact, I think this would make a great movie, although, because of its length, a lot of the book would have to be cut out.
I'm watching for more from Joseph Finley.
As the story developed, I found myself drawn to the descriptions of historical places and events, Finley really brought them alive for me and I felt like I was there watching history.
A good book, strongly recommend.
