Review of The Father's Child

The Father's Child

The Father's Child
Mark Adair
Kindle Edition 2010

   John Truman is an introverted college student who just wants to hang out with his friends. Little does he know that he is connected to a 300 year old secret society, New Dawn, who has it's sights on ruling the world. John has no idea that the society has designed and made him. They are just waiting for the time to come to bring John into the fold. First, John's friend George, disappears. Then, John is kidnapped by what appears to be the drug cartel, or is it?
   John's best friend Paul, along with Susan and an FBI agent, go off in search of their friend. They are pulled deeper and deeper into the clutches of the New Dawn society. Will they be able to find John and save him or will they be recruited into the society's clutches?
   This is a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat and has you guessing until the very end. The storyline is quite good; but there were places where I was lost briefly because of the bouncing around of the characters that tell the story. There were instances where a chapter did not flow smoothly into the next. This caused some confusion for me. The story had twists and turns that are full of suspense. The author takes us into the minds of some true evil masterminds. This is not a book for a casual read. You must keep up with the storyline or you will most definitely be lost. John is a bit naive and can't see what is in front of his face. Paul is the kind of guy that women love to hate. He is a womanizer and sees them for one purpose. He is quite funny in his dialogue and thoughts and does have some crowning moments as the story progresses. All in all this is a fantastic story that takes the reader on a roller coaster ride. If you like action, adventure and thrills, I highly recommend this book.
   I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy for reading and reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to review.

I give The Father's Child 4 out of 5 stars


  1. Sounds like an interesting and involved read. I enjoyed your review.

  2. You write such good reviews. You never give away too much of the plot or attack books in a critical way, nor are you overly gushy. :-) I think others could learn a thing or two from you.
