Editorial Reviews


"An amazing read" from "a masterful storyteller." Five stars.
- Readers' Favorite

"It's hard to put the book down... The results are fascinating. If you aren't already running to get a copy of this extraordinary reading experience, then I have done you an injustice. But I'm still not giving the plot away. No more spoilers. You've got to read it to see for yourself."
- ESRA Magazine

"An unexpected mind-opener... a surprising amount of wit, and a good-sized cast of strong supporting characters. This highly original novel is likely to be controversial in the best of ways: provoking thought and discussion."
- Phil Jason, The Federation Star

"This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. The premise was different and the story was both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time... Totally loved the book and highly recommend it." 
- Embam, Amazon reviewer

"Grabbing you from the very first page, An Unexpected Afterlife takes you in unexpected directions, combining a page-turning mystery with discussion of one of the fundamental beliefs of Judaism." 
- Ellis Shuman, author of Valley of Thracians

"...a unique intriguing, and entertaining story. I really like the way Dan Sofer describes his flawed characters who also seem complex and complicated... the individuals, family, community, Jewish traditions, friends and hope. I also enjoyed the satire of their adventures. I would highly recommend this entertaining book and hope to read more in this series." 
Linda's Book Obsession

From the Author

The Final Redemption is here. What took so long?

According to Jewish traditions (based on the Old Testament), the End of Days will involve a Resurrection of the Dead, a Messiah King, an Ingathering of Exiles, a Rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem, a World War, great upheavals, and a very large banquet of fish (or, in the very least, a very large fish).

What if the Messianic Era began today?

The Dry Bones Society series serves up one possible scenario of how all that might pan out, along with healthy side helpings of romance and action, humor and adventure, as well as an introspective look at the State of Israel and, while we're at it, the state of humanity.
