Genesis by Kristie Cook blog tour and GIVE AWAY!





From Author Kristie Cook’s Soul Savers blog:

GENESIS
A father who reveals his truth.
Twins who take different paths—one light, one dark.
Angels who have plans for them both
And Demons who do as well.
So the Earthly battle for souls ignites…

A tale that is over 2,000 years old, this is the story of the Amadis beginnings.


My Review:
I took my Kindle with me to read Genesis while we waiting in the ER to get my son checked for strep. Good news: He was negative for strep. Even better news: we were there for 3 hours and I got over half way done with this book.

Of course, by the time we got home, it was supper time, last minute homework and getting ready for the new week to start. At bedtime, I grabbed my light and headed to bed. I was going to finish this book before I went to sleep. I sure did too! It was so worth it. Although this book is not a full length book, it more than makes up for it in content! This book blew me away.

As always when you deal with multiple characters, it is a little confusing to keep them all straight. My brain kept trying to tie them back to Purpose and Promise and you CAN’T DO THAT! That is why this is called a PREQUEL but my brain could not accept that at first. But after only a short time, I had all the characters straight in my mind and an incredible world opened up.

With the title being GENESIS, you can imagine the setting of this book. It was a time of war, gods and goddess’, Christianity and constant struggle. This time was a world of chaos, fear and uncertainty.

We meet Andrew. He is an angel that has been assigned to watch over the human, Zoe. He has pledged to protect her with everything he has. When she is attacked by the very demons he is trying to rid the world of, he does the unthinkable. He saves her! He is punished by higher powers for disobeying orders. Instead of being cast out as a fallen angel and turned to a demon, he will live as a human man.

As a human, Andrew builds a life and family. The angel blood that ran gold in his veins created a special power in his future family. The result of his time on earth creates the Genesis of the Good on earth to battle the evil that is constantly trying to take over. Generations and generations of twins will be brought into this world as born leaders to fight for the good of the Amadis and the evil of the Daemoni. So starts the series of Good vs Evil.
