I found this book a real page turner, that had me hooked from the start. I couldn’t put it down. I would highly recommend it and give it 5 stars.
Gage, our hero, is an exile in his own land, abandoned on a military mission by his own country. He is rescued by a priest and an archeologist, who smuggle him back into the states and who helps him see a different way of life. Then a secret society kills the priest and Gage must take up the guns that he had forsworn, to protect those most dear and near to him.
Can Gage come out of retirement and take on some of the best assassins in the world? Can he save his friends? Can he stop a great evil from taking place? You will have to read The Reckoning to find out.
What I discovered was that it is not wise to assume things about a novel you've never read. Let me put it as simply as I possibly can. Huggins redefines the entire Christian-Thriller genre... And then some.
I couldn't put the book down. I couldn't even take time out for meals. This is without doubt the greatest and most fascinating piece of modern fiction I've come across in a good long while. If you have any interest in books at all you owe it to yourself to buy this one!
nothing has enchanted me quite so much as this delightfully penned story of intrigue. With a plausible plot, obviously
well-researched espionage and combat techniques, and realistic characterizations, I was completely drawn into a believable scenario, and read
well into the night for the first week or so. Suddenly, I found myself allowing just one chapter at bedtime, and I
realized this "rationing" reflected the immense pleasure of savoring every paragraph. James Byron Huggins is the only
contemporary author of the thrilling adventure genre who can truly be called an "author" in the best sense of the title.
Every sentence is beautifully assembled, and each phrase turned in a lovingly constructed way. From his description
of the twilight sky to the probing of the minds and hearts of the characters, to the narration of nocturnal subterfuge,
every word falls perfectly into place. This is literature at its best. I thoroughly enjoyed this exciting adventure
from the comfort of my fireside, and I look forward to starting in on "Leviathan" next. With "Cain" on the way, I
will certainly enjoy the rest of this winter. I only trust Mr. Huggins will be a long-lived and prolific writer -- his
is a God-given talent that must find expression. His first endeavor, "A Wolf Story," was an excellent offering in the
tradition of "Watership Down" and is recommended for anyone with a heart for our furry friends. Thank you, Mr. Huggins.
