Oh my. I don't know where to begin on this one. I absolutely adored it. It's one of those novels you like to go back and reread again numerous times. This was really really really good. I love how so much reality and fact is interwoven with the fiction and non-reality. Sometimes it's difficult to tell the two apart. Not to mention, I just ate the story up like it was coffee ice cream. It hooked me. Asher and Cheyenne's relationship tore me up, they so belong together. I can't wait to see what ha ...more

This is the fourth worst book I have read at this point in my literate life.

The author, in the first four chapters, manages to make a mockery of herself in every way available to an unusually nutty, child-beating fundie. She expresses--and, via a terrorism-wracked world more befitting of a conservative survivalist's fantasy than a modern-day description of the world--attempts to justify the most paranoid Islamophobia I have ever seen in a fictional work; praises herbal medicine to a highly risi

Started a bit rough (author's first novel), but definitely got a lot better the farther it went. The scary part is, it's a contemporary story about the near future describing a very possible state of affairs here in America. Because of my familiarity with the author's non-fiction work, I am confident that much research went into this fictional story, and it gives much food for thought and prayer. It is the first of a series, so I really am looking forward to the rest. Debi Pearl is a great story ...more

I really looked forward to reading this book, Debi Pearl's first novel, and was not disappointed. The story begins a little slowly while characters and the basic storyline are under development. Then it takes off, intertwining an engaging story with information on herbs and Biblical teaching. I am familiar with this author's non-fiction work and am thereby confident in the knowledge and research that went into the book. The ending took me by surprise. I look forward to the sequel.

I loved this book from the beginning to the end. How Debi weaves in the Scripture and the true facts of the Muslims is just amazing. And she included the recipe for the Herbal Berry Brew in the book (no it’s not the supernatural one:)). The little information boxes at the bottom of the pages were really interesting as well. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. I think Debi is an amazing author.

I did not like this book. In all honesty, I did not even get to the half-way point before I stopped reading. Maybe it's just not my kind of book - but it's too 'out there' for me. I don't enjoy graphic violence and evil in my reading material. I don't like swear words that are there just other symbols used for letters (come on, like I don't know what the words is??). If you are into fantastical conspiracy theories, then you might enjoy this. Not me.

It was okay. They say an author's first work of fiction is really a biography in disquise, which rings true in this book. It was kind of distracting to be able to pinpoint who Debi based her characters on from real life. Otherwise it was good. The story started out slow but started to move along after the second half. Given the choice, I would not read it again.

The word that kept coming to mind as I read this book was "odd." It was fairly well written and the story was interesting, if not believable... but it just had an odd feel to it. And I'm not sure that I agree with all the convictions of the author. I probably won't read the sequel.

Amateur writing where accented speech is always spelled out rather than alluded to and islamophobia is rampant. Lots of flat out creepiness when you realize that for the followers of this author, fiction and reality are extremely blurred.

Hard to put down kind of book and will keep you entertained. I only gave it two stars because it was too much like a novel. I don't think I will read any more in this series.

It was a decent first shot at a novel, but some things were over-developed while others (that needed to be more so) were under-developed. I look forward to the sequel.

This was an AMAZING book! It may be a little mature for younger readers though, because of some of the topics they deal with.
