Although I am a HUGE fan of John Edward's nonfiction books, I didn't have very high expectations for this book. I don't know why, and as it turns out, low expectations were highly unwarranted! This book was EXCELLENT. I was surprised by how action-packed it was; I could not put it down and in fact finished it in a couple of days (it is also a fairly quick read). There are several characters that get introduced one after the other and I was afraid I'd get confused, but I didn't. Everything was la ...more

Edward's psychic thriller fails to deliver much spiritual depth

John Edward's second novel, a supernatural thriller, is more "thriller" than "supernatural." Co-written by Natasha Stoynoff, Final Beginnings offers a quick beach read with a reasonably suspenseful story. However, I was disappointed by its lack of spiritual exploration.

Spiritual/metaphysical content: Low. Given John Edward's international reputation as a psychic medium and author of seven books, I expected a more substantial metaphy
I can easily see this book becoming a movie. It's got the action that so many people crave, plus illustrates how God can bring people together to create a miracle. The scenes in the end also show the other side, and that our loved ones are there and watching over us.

All I knew of John Edwards was 'Crossing Over', Pyschic Medium. As always, when I read something I keep an open mind. This novel was breathtakingly awesome. It takes the reader to levels that challenge the mind, not only in character outlays, but also in the unfoldment of the story. It is gripping and keeps you edgy whilst at the same time asking yourself "why?". As incarnate souls some do have a hard time coming to terms with death, crossing over, and receiving messages from the beyond the veil ...more

This is the second time I've read this book. I just can't get enough of the page-turning, life & death drama which unfolds in New York City. A disillusioned psychic, able to converse with those who have made the transition to the 'other side,' foretells all the chaos in advance, though no one believes her until it's too late. A genetics tycoon has built an empire, though it all comes crashing down - partially due to his genius son.

Having read (and loved) John's books "Crossing Over" and "One Last Time", I was intrigued to read his first attempt at fiction.

I was not disappointed! In fact I was surprised at how quickly I was drawn into the story and how embroiled I became in the lives and journey of each character!

I only hope the rumours of a sequel are true.

A thriling romance by one of the best known mediums of our time. Intense and with a lot os suspense, the story develops as we get to know the characters. An adventure where each will find a different outcome, and all will overcome their own limitations.

This novel has woven into the story psychic phenomenon. It's about a brilliant genetics researcher & his strange son, a police captain, a reporter, a psychic, a retired military man, etc. The story includes explosions and threats of them. It was an interesting story and I enjoyed it.

Validating, captivating, timely. Trust your gut instinct. My comments are limited- too close to home for now.

Not at all what I expected from John Edward, but a good thriller with a great premise.
