The Fruit of the Fallen by J.C. Burnham is an intense story that leaves you breathless from the first word. The story starts off by introducing Dr. Jonathan Keats, a seemingly average man. It is when he is ambushed by a dying nun, and an infant thrust into his arms that his life takes a turn toward the extraordinary. From that moment he becomes a fugitive, accused of murder and kidnapping.

However it is the infant, a girl named Serenity, that is the stories main focus. Fast forwarding fifteen ye

I was blessed to receive this as a GoodReads First Read - free no less ans signed by the author. This book was much more than I expected. I was looking for a murder mystery and discovered so much more. Do not think of your genre - just enjoy the read! It may change your mind about many things, both real and unreal. Great read!

I really enjoyed this novel and going on Serenity's journey and also Jonathan's. I loved some of the characters in the novel and the details and how everything was played out.
First, let's talk about the characters. Serenity was a 15 year old teenage girl who was trying to figure out who and what she really was. She wasn't a kick butt heroine which is what all YA novels that are coming out seem to have, but she wasn't whiny all the time which I liked. Sometimes I though it could have given more

This book has taken me a LONG time to read. It was my first experience with Wattpad. Wattpad is a wonderful idea. But for people with eyes like mine, it is very difficult. The font is not adjustable. There is no text-to-speech to help me out. I should have spent the money and read it on Kindle but by the time I knew it was on Amazon I was about halfway through the book.

Then there is the story itself. I loved the nice quiet fun parts in the school. But most of the book was suspenseful and gave me
