Special Thanks to all of those who have read, rated, and reviewed "Blood of Eden". Many thanks to my writing mentor Mike Conley, for his passion, commitment and contribution to Blood of Eden. It started as an idea, which then developed into a screenplay that found its way to the bookshelves. Mike, thank you for making me a better writer, a better person, and a humble author. Blood of Eden is not just me... It's a team of friends, family, studio execs, lawyers and investors. Thank you to: David ...more

"Hunting Christ" is by far one of the most interesting, exciting, and amazing books I have ever read. It left me completely breathless, and longing for more. Even knowing the author plans sequels I don't believe they can come fast enough! I greatly anticipate the next installment of the trilogy. I found myself going back over some of the chapters, like an addict looking for more, perhaps just one small thing that I'd missed.

The characters in this novel are so real

Blood of Eden by Kenol Policard"Blood of Eden" by Ken Policard is a tale of the faithful and the fallen and of the wager between God and the devil that sets human existence in the unknowing hands of the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. The story blends the lives of people that - either, by fate or by providence - come together to track a serial killer that has been at large for 33 years. Leading the case is FBI Agent Mas, who staggers along a blind trail, lacking of clues and with a butchery of victims that began in the city o ...more

I started reading Blood of Eden, and then I had to put it aside because I had family staying with me from out of town. During the week I was away from the book, I kept thinking about it: What’s going to happen next? What does all of this mean? How will this story unfold? When my company left, I went straight back to Blood of Eden and didn’t let anything get in my way. I didn’t answer the phone or do much work of my own–the story kept me on the edge of my seat. History, suspense and religion all ...more

Blood of Eden. Ken Policard. I AM Publishing, 2011. 374 pages.
Thoughts on the relationship between God and Satan have most likely crossed the minds of many of us since the beginning of time. Blood of Eden, a first novel by Ken Policard touches on the complexities of that relationship in an interesting manner that brings to mind the interaction between God and Satan in the Book of Job from the Bible.
In the Book of Job, Satan inferred that the only reason Job was so faithful to God was because of

This novel as a religious thriller is magnificently written with universal appeal of all religions and races worldwide. From the beginning to the end the reader is captured by facts and fiction that Policard has seamlessly brought together. I found myself associating truths in my own life with parts of this novel. Many of the reviews I have read and others I have talked to about this novel have found the same associations, questioning facts in their own lives. There is more to this perception by ...more

This book has now been renamed to HUNTING CHRIST.

Ken Policard tells us at the beginning of this book that the story is based on a screenplay. It definitely has the feel of a screenplay with the nonstop action. Policard fills in the blanks with a wealth of description that brings this classic story of good and evil to life. And, though it occasionally meanders into a hint of cliche, the story surprises you with some unexpected developments.

Adapting a screenplay into a novel can't be an easy endea

Not a bad novel. Interesting concept. I am finding the numerous flashbacks to be disrupting, however. At times it is even difficult to know which time line the scene is in. I usually don't mind flashbacks, especially when they are important to the plot development, but in this case it seems every time I get engrossed in the story I get pulled out again. I am able to stick with it, and am determined to finish the book tonight. For me it has not been a quick read.

And now I have finished the novel

Absolutely magnificient. I was deeply captivated by this tale’s premise: Devil bets with God that if Jesus were born today, He wouldn’t sacrifice His Life for any human. Not being too religious I don’t have any strong convictions that would preclude me from loving or hating the book on principle, so I was able to enjoy it from a purely entertainment point of view. And what a great work of fiction this is.

The characters are strong, behave true to themselves throughout the book, while keeping the

New title "Hunting Christ". I just finished reading an amazing book. The book titled Hunting Christ by Kenol Policard. Interesting from start to finish. As I read I found myself picturing the characters in my head and found it difficult to put down. Each chapter leaves you begging for more. As you are reading you are being pulled into each scene as if you are there and just as you think you know what will happen there is a twist in the end that just leaves you waiting in anticipation for the ...more

Blood of Eden is a great read about the modern struggle between good and evil. In this epic bet made between god and the devil the battle is told in a unique way. Blood of Eden was originally a screenplay and it reads that way with the constant action. The timeline in the book is a little hard to follow at times because it jumps around without markers to signal the change. I can't wait to see the on screen version of this story. It should be a great watch.

I won this book from Goodreads First Reads!!

This book was pretty good. It was interesting and it kept you guessing at some parts.

This book is about how the devil and God make a bet. Jesus is sent back to earth and people are brought together to catch a murderer who has been killing people for 32 years. As the story unraveles it gets more interesting and more suspensful.

The story was interesting, but it was predictable. I had the ending figured out halfway through the book.
