Borders of the Heart

Chris Fabry has written another masterpiece-Borders of the Heart.  He is one talented writer that always gives the reader a great story that has interesting characters, great story lines, God's redemption in the story.  This one is unique and extremely good.

J.D. is near Tuscon trying to forget painful memories in his past.  He is working on an organic farm and there is one rule-see an illegal and call Border Patrol.  He finds a girl-Maria, in the desert near death and the story begins.  He hides her out and then realizes there are evil people trying to kill her. They are beginning a cat and mouse chase.  They are not sure who is the killer and are just trying to stay alive.
J.D. has secrets that collide with Maria's past and how in saving her, he can save himself.

This story will hook you from the beginning and not let up till the final page. Great story with a love story intertwined and lots of with God's mercy and grace thrown in.  Very interesting ending and a book you will enjoy.  In fact, read all of Chris Fabry's books-you will not be disappointed.

Thank you Tyndale for sending me this book free just for my honest opinion.

Darkness Rising

Darkness Rising is the second book of the East Salem Trilogy and as the title suggests, it is truly a supernatural suspense book.  I am still trying to figure out if I liked it or not.  It was good is spots and in spots I felt lost.  This book continues the evil that lurks in East Salem except with a new twist.  Dani Harris is a forensic psychiatrist and Tommy Gunderson is a ex football player from the first book and they are romantically involved as this story continues. They are trying to uncover what is happening at the St. Adrian's Academy with strange events happening and a death. Dani and Tommy are given clues by an older lady who has researched  the supernatural forces at work in the town for generations. They must find out who and what is behind the evil and the battle of angels and demons come full force against each other throughout this story. When the unseen becomes  seen. faith is the only weapon strong enough to fight a battle of murder and betrayal and angels and demons.  More characters are enlisted to help this cause and a lot of science dealing with the brain, chemicals relating to autism and brain tumors left me completely in left field.  I found that part not very interesting and made the storyline drag for me.

The authors have researched the supernatural, angels and demons and crafted a supernatural suspense with a lot of historical parts woven in the story.  They did leave you hanging on the last page and now we have to wait a year till this storyline ends-bummer.
Thanks to Thomas Nelson for sending this book free of charge just for my honest opinion.
