Wayward Son

For centuries it seems the devil has been using our own personal guilt to keep us bound in our own prisons. Things we have done in our past serve as countless reminders he uses to keep us from the forgiveness and freedom that is ours to enjoy.

In the novel, Wayward Son, by Tom Pollack along with Jim Alves and John Loftus, the three will take the reader into an unexpected journey through the history of time. Beginning with Amanda Jones, who is a gifted linguist who works for the Getty Museum having a huge history in archeological digs, she finds herself at the disposal of Juan Carlos once more. He has requested her presence in Italy at what is slated to be the biggest find since the Dead Sea Scrolls. Apparently a recent earthquake has created a crack in the earth surfaces that has revealed a set of bronze doors that only she can reach and decode with her knowledge of ancient languages.

What she isn't expecting is to gain the ultimate lesson in history since the beginning of time by unlocking the doors long buried since the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Now Amanda will journey through the biblical history with a discovery that she has found Cain, the reported child of Adam and Eve in the Genesis chapter of the Bible. Seeing history through his eyes, she gets an idea of what lies hidden behind the doors and just who will stop at nothing to make sure that she doesn't get out of the chamber alive.

I received Wayward Son compliments of Glass Road Public Relations for my honest review and LOVED it. Being a huge fan of not only biblical history but also world history, this book chroniciles the history of Cain's murder of his brother Abel and the guilt that has followed him and the curse he felt God has placed on his head since he was discovered. It was such a fantastic journey through history, I forgot I was reading a novel and was so completely immersed in the story as seen through the eyes of Cain. This is by far one of the most exceptional books I have had the pleasure to review and thus think it truly deserves 5 out of 5 stars. For anyone who loves biblical or world history, this is the perfect novel for you with a bit of Indiana Jones suspense action thrown in to keep you reading til the final page.
