"Children of Blood and Bone"
Tomi Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her West African-inspired fantasy debut. Learn more
Senator Will Sullivan and his wife Gwen are a golden couple, facing a glorious future few Americans will ever know.
Now their most cherished dream is about to become reality--at a price too terrible to imagine
The child the Sullivans have long prayed for will soon be theirs, thanks to a special procedure performed at a confidential Dallas clinic. But the miracle of a small life growing within Gwen Sullivan has placed her husband's destiny and her own in the murderous hands of a dark messiah. A politician on the verge of greatness and the woman he cherishes have suddenly become the pawns in a conspiracy of staggering proportions, masterminded by a condemned psychopath who plans for his last act on earth to be the total enslavement and destruction of a powerful American family.
In and beyond the glare of the TV camera lights, the Sullivans' desperate battle for survival has begun--in a war of lies, coercion, treachery and terror that will spread from Death Row to the highest residence in the land.

Wesley Dean Theroux resides in prison where he runs his disciples via a computer. Wesley believes he is the messiah. His crew arrange for his semen to be artificially planted inside Gwen. The disciples kidnap Gwen and Wes' plan to impregnate her goes off without a hitch. Unable to obtain any help in rescuing his spouse from his so-called political friends, Will mounts his own rescue mission though it will cost him a vice presidential nomination and perhaps his life.
To be a TRUE BELIEVERS in this plot, readers will have to suspend all logic. First, one must accept the premise of a senator turning into a vigilante lone ranger. Second, one must ignore a death row inmate using a personal computer that has unlimited access. After those leaps and a few minor hops, the audience will enjoy an exciting thriller that will remind readers of The Omen (part 1). Doug Richardson provides a tension-packed thriller that fans who take pleasure in non-stop action will enjoy, but first they must learn to do the triple jump.
As an avid reader and a (screen/t.v.) writer for over twenty years "True Belivers" captured my attention totally. I couldn't put it down until I finished the last page.
It is a taut, suspenseful rollercoaster ride, filled with people and a political arena that are so well etched you're hooked from page one; pulled into lives that smack with such reality you forget that you're reading a book and become a voyeur watching characters grow and change as they reveal intimate moments.
It was like peeling a grape. Each layered chapter brought forth the bitter-sweetness of life and left you with an aftertaste for more long after the book is finished.
Filled with such subtlety and foreshadowing, the book demands a second read, so that one can catch the almost visceral nuances missed in the first enthralling pass.
