Book Description

12 Mar 2013 Righteous Series Book 5

As the reluctant new leader of Blister Creek, Dr. Jacob Christianson dares to hope he finally has delivered his people from the brutal Kimball clan—until his adopted son Daniel begins suffering from terrifying visions. Jacob knows all too well the mental illness that plagues the Kimballs, Daniel’s biological family, fueling their thirst for vengeance and power. Desperate for answers, Jacob immerses himself in the history of Blister Creek, plumbing its blood-soaked origins for something—anything—to save his beloved son from the path of evil.

All the while, the fugitive Taylor Kimball Junior is gathering the tattered remnants of his family, rallying them for one final assault on Blister Creek. Driven by the same dark angel fighting for Daniel’s soul, Taylor Junior won’t stop until he claims his rightful place as the prophet of Blister Creek—and wipes the Christianson bloodline from the earth forever.

More About the Author

I've trekked across the Sahara on a camel, ridden an elephant through a tiger preserve in Southeast Asia, eaten fried guinea pig, and been licked on the head by a skunk. In a previous stage of life I programmed nuclear war simulations, smuggled refugees out of a war zone, and milked cobras for their venom. I speak Spanish and French and grew up in a religious community in the desert.

Another highly engaging and enjoyable read from this fifth book of the series, but I feel that the core story line that continues here after being visited and re-visited in the previous books is beginning to lose its credulity slightly and become rather stretched.

However, this book also began to weave the historical back story of Blister Creek into the tale, which I think will pave the way for a new plot direction for the future books in the series that are no doubt to come.
I particularly enjoyed this aspect of the story, and feel that the way the tale of the founding of Blister Creek was told and woven into the fabric of the current events of the book was both well written and flowed very naturally.

Like the preceding books, the characterization in this book is strong, the writing coherent and engaging, and it is generally very well written and edited. I would not hesitate to recommend this series to those who enjoy a good thriller/mystery, or anyone who is fascinated with the day to day fine details of life in a polygamous LDS sect-with a difference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angel or Hallucination? 6 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel does stand alone, but the writer makes frequent references to the events which have led to the present situations, so there is an assumption that the reader is aware of the history. To fully engage with this story you need to have read at least one of the earlier books. The author has created a religious fundamentalist group divided by historical discord which results in bloody actions and a refusal to move with the times. Throw into these internal tragedies the fact that the whole world is apparently being affected by some sort of super-volcanic activity and the scene is set for what might, or might not, be a precursor of the End of Days.... which presumably be continued into the next novel.... Although I have read a number of this series I still find it difficult to really care what happens to the characters. They are well-crafted, believable and Wallace has created some strong females, but ultimately I find I don't actually care all that much for them or their fates. That might be due to my experience of fundamentalist Christians and their intolerance.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anyone who likes crime stories will be enchanted with this series. Certainly is a refreshing read from main stream who done it's. Give it a whirl and I think like me you will read all the books back to back and put next release in October 2014 on the wish list.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Goings on at Blister Creek! 21 Nov 2013
By G. J. Oxley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the fifth book in 'The Righteous' series and Michael Wallace is still maintaining the standards he set in the earlier books. A bestseller in his native America, h deserves books deserve to shoot up the charts over here, too.

My verdict: Another page-turning, jaw-tightening thriller that will entertain and chill you!

2.0 out of 5 stars annoying, misogynicm, drivel 7 Aug 2013
By ratscat13 VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I started this book about five times to try to get to grips with it. If I wasn't in the Vine programme I wouldn't have bothered more than twice. This book is very poor.

The story is so disjointed as to render it impossible to follow. The characters are awful. The angel is pathetic, detsroying angel, only through boringpeople to destruction! Women are portaryed poorly and as child producers or sexual playthings.

Don't bother - there are much better angel fantasy books out there!
