Blind Sight by James H. Pence
My rating: 4.25/5.0
Blind Sight has been re-published this year along with the release of Terror By Night, a non-fiction book that is based on event and the aftermath and how one man was affected by a page from Blind Sight.
I'm glad it's been republished because that landed it on my doorstep to be reviewed and participate in a blog tour.
This is a story of one man and how he is affected by events in his past and events occurring in the present. When he is contacted by kids of a friend from college, he is drug into a life on the run to find the children's mother and to stop a cult that is slowly infiltrating the country.
I loved reading this from the different point of views. Thomas Kent, the main character, Dana, the girl who is being initiated in the cult, Sawyer Wynne, who created the cult, Michelle and Micah, the twins on the run from the cult and Justine the mother who escaped the cult. All point of views are great and contribute well to the story.
I like getting the story of the cult the most and how it was given in little pieces here and there, it was fascinating and well-plotted. The action story line with Thomas and the children was also well-done and I enjoyed watching how the various storylines intersected.
Not too contrived and full of action - this is a story to enjoy. Christianity is a part of it, but it's not preachy. It's just a man who was a Christian trying to make sense of things. It adds to the story and does not take away from it.
See my tour post for more information about the author and the book.
