Every time I get a new book from Guy, I’m excited but a little tense. “Can he keep up the story quality?” The answer, so far, has always been: Yes!
This one is no exception. You do need to read book one, “Journey Into The Deep”. This story assumes you understand the water world about which Guy is writing. It’s a water world inside the earth, completely separated from the exterior of the planet. It’s not much of a leap for those of us who have studied the fountains of the deep which broke forth helping to produce The Flood. But, the internal reality of the book quickly takes over and you find it very believable.
As Guy did in The Warrior Kind series, he has produced an outrageous but believable world in which to develop his characters. As usual, the leads are a strong man and a strong woman, who are both severely damaged by the world in many ways, thrown together by circumstance. They fight the possibility of a new relationship tooth and nail, but are converted by the work of the Holy Spirit. They each discover that the other is the mate chosen by God for them from before they were born. If you haven’t married that person, you’ll be entralled. If you have, like I have, these books are a glorious affirmation of the marriage you have been experiencing. This is true love, writ large and wonderful.
Because serial fornicators are not possible for good people in a truly righteous world, Guy needs to develop a new couple for every story. Is it a bit predictable? Of course. However, the action/adventure tale which goes with this excellent romance is outstanding, wild, and delightful. God has blessed us with Guy’s stories. They’re not for the timid. Guy is not afraid to tell the truth about sin and the results of it. Non-believers will love them also—if you give them a chance.
These are wonderful stories of love and edifying relationships with God
Of course, the bad guys are incredibly, but realistically evil. What a fun ride.
Yes, Guy gave me a review copy, but he knows I don’t pull any punches and he gave me no conditions. The only flaw is the need for an editor, but the stories are so much fun that this is a minor irritant. Plus, his writing gets better with every book. This is the 13th book he’s released if I am counting correctly—all in the past couple years. The Warrior Kind and Agents for Good series still have the first book in the series free.
