    Not really sure how to comment on this one While I do believe in the afterlife, you really need to have an open mind when reading this one Everyone s religious beliefs are different and so I m sure some are still shaking their heads With the visit to heaven and then the story line of the reincarnation I m sure we all havequestions than answers.

    First of, I want to extend my gratitude to the author, Glenn Maynard, for providing a soft copy for this story in exchange for an honest review.To be honest, this is actually the first time that I ve got to read a book from the author so I really don t know what to expect whether I m going to like it or not At first, he offered me to read and review the sequel of this book, the Wayward Soul, but I never read a sequel without starting with its first book even though the author already assured t First of, I want to extend my gratitude to the author, Glenn Maynard, for providing a soft copy for this story in exchange for an honest review.To be honest, this is actually the first time that I ve got to read a book from the author so I really don t know what to expect whether I m going to like it or not At first, he offered me to read and review the sequel of this book, the Wayward Soul, but I never read a sequel without starting with its first book even though the author already assured that it can be read standalone And I m a kind of person who never breaks her habits winkI admit when I first read the preview of this book, I was really intrigued to the highest level I ve read religious books before and stories that has heaven or even life after death, but this book isthan that Imagine, life after death and out of body experience in just one book plus the addition of hypnosis, and past life regression Isn t that intense And it was because of that, that it spiked my expectation too high that I m afraid it reached the rooftop in heaven lolDesert Son started with an out of body experience by Carter main male character after an accident he s been through which resulting the death of both his parents Considering the number of pages of this book, I really don t have any idea how s the author gonna end this story, because unfortunately for me, it started too slow that made this story too challenging for me to finish It only comprises of 188 pages with 25 chapters For normal circumstances, I could have finished it in just one sitting But to my dismay, it took me 3 days On its first few chapters, we we re introduced to Carter and should I say, was focused only to him about his life before and after the incident I m never a fan of descriptive stories so no wonder I didn t enjoyed it as much, but there are ofcourse readers that enjoy descriptive stories, and I m sure they would on the part of Carter s short journey to heaven.The story soon catches up and new characters were introduced Some of Carter s questions including mine were answered and all of those disheveled parts finally makes sense.For the story s plot, I admit that the author had it big time I love the idea of combining them all in just one book, though I admit that I wasn t that impressed at all on how it was written I m a sucker for suspense so I was really disappointed that I only had experienced a few of those in this story Also, I just think that there s some scenes that doesn t need to be added or seem a bit questionable, but overall it was still a good read.And for its characters, I applaud the author for making it brief yet understandable It s not that too overwhelming descriptive that will leave you gasping for breath, though I admit that I had some hard time imagining what the characters would look like in real person especially, Carter.Half of its contents started too slow but once you get on hold to it and pursue on reading, you will be rewarded with amazing discoveries and acquainted with intense revelations.Even if this book didn t provided me with what I ve expected, I m still open to read its sequel Why Because in a series, it isn t the first book that has its treasure, but it s in the next and the next and the next, until you reach the last of it.Rating 3 out of 5 stars Buy Desert Son Kindle Buy Desert Son Paperback To readof my reviews, book news and updates Main Blog Blushing GeekFacebook PageSubscribe to mailing list

    I love stories about out of body experiences, reincarnation, and life after death, which drew me to read DESERT SON Carter s out of body experience was a great start to the book for me I thought it was an interesting and unique way to introduce the character and give insight into his personality Unfortunately, I didn t connect with Carter like I wanted instead, I felt lukewarm towards him I was sad for his loss and loneliness as well as the disappointment he felt upon his return from the I love stories about out of body experiences, reincarnation, and life after death, which drew me to read DESERT SON Carter s out of body experience was a great start to the book for me I thought it was an interesting and unique way to introduce the character and give insight into his personality Unfortunately, I didn t connect with Carter like I wanted instead, I felt lukewarm towards him I was sad for his loss and loneliness as well as the disappointment he felt upon his return from the afterlife He was close with his parents and didn t have any other close relatives However, he never grieved his parents Was it because he was in shock Mired in anger From his memories, his parents seemed to be terrific and loving He did mention feeling guilt over his inability to cry, and that happens to many people so I can t really begrudge him that I understood his need to get away from Boston and the memories that were assaulting him It was as though he suddenly thought it wasimportant to find out whether his parents were really his biological parents or not I get wanting to know who you are, your roots, and all that, but grieving for me would come first It takesthan blood to be parents, and it sounded like his were good to him His sudden connection with Brenda made no sense She didn t strike me as trustworthy after all she s a complete stranger, so why would he trust anything she said How could he become so enad with someone he just met The story picked up when he stayed at the old man s Martin house, but even that was strange Why would a man let a stranger stay at his house But it was here where my interest picked up in learning how everything tied together There was still a lot behind the characters motivations and actions that I didn t understand
