Jerome and the Seraph
AUTHOR: robina williams
Brother Jerome slips in the graveyard, hitting his head with a thud. Later he finds himself in a rather strange place accompanied by a dear old friend that he knows is deceased. The situation is most abstruse as there are no cherubs, no angels, no fluffy clouds- none of his expectations of beyond; he soon accedes to his irreversible situation. His greatest surprise is the arrival of his beloved cat, Leo in the afterworld. Leo, who we learn is actually Quant, the cat/lion alter ego, it seems, can travel at will between the two worlds being both alive and dead.
Jerome's ingrained beliefs are challenged, as he learns the answers to life long spiritual questions. He comes face to face with the hound of Heaven as the trill of Pan's flute fills the air.
Brother Jerome and his cohorts, both living and dead are most enchanting characters. Full of human frailties and believable character flaws, they charm the reader with their humorous encounters and escapades.
The author makes reference to several nineteenth century paintings including St. Jerome in the Wilderness, adding a touch of refinement and artistic interest to the book. Amusing, entertaining and charming, Robina Williams has a winner with her bumbling friar and his amazing ginger.
The author lives in north- west England and has an M.A in Modern Languages. This book is the first in the Quantum cat series; she has finished her second book Angelos and is working on the third.
Highly recommended, this reviewer looks forward to the next book in the series. Shirley Roe, Allbooks Reviews.

This was one of those books you can't put down, with a cast of really likable characters and a simple easy going tale with no nasty stuff or violence.
It held my interest from start to finish ,I was sorry when it ended. This book is one of a set so you can have a break if you like and start another one. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

This starts so well with a friar being killed in an accident and then reaches the afterlife, the idea is good and would work well if there was a plot that lead anywhere, unfortunately after this very little happens, it is a well written story with the characters and locations being well described but the story could almost be the day by day story of dead and alive friars and a cat that that can talk to the dead. The other thing that I do not like is that this seems to be a serial, I don't mind series where books can be read as a standalone but this one just stops and probably continues in the next of the books. I will read the next one but only if it is a free download.

I'm glad it was a quick book to read and I didn't pay anything for it or it would have been a waste of time and money. If you have a Kindle, I definitely recommend getting the free chapter preview before paying for this book.

There are a lot of things going on, but there doesn't seem to be a sensible plot to the story, just a bunch of friars and some weird things in the afterlife. Many things that could be interesting plot points are introduced and then breezed over with the explanation that a particular character thought it was weird, but didn't want to explore it further and the subject is dropped forever. This means that nothing really happens and the reader thinks the book is going to go in one direction, but just doesn't go anywhere.

The book ends abruptly, so it would seem as if there might be more books in the future to tie things together. Unfortunately, this book was such a disappointment, I wouldn't bother reading any future books in the series to find out what happens.
