    Fantastic, fast-paced read.

    Blind Sight is a very intriguing and fast-paced story, and I don't know why I've put off reading it for so long. It's about a about mind-control cults. Sounds scary and intimidating,eh? Well yes, it is a rather dark fiction.

    James H. Pierce brings you the story of Thomas Kent, a man who lost his will to continue living and move on after loosing his family.

    Thomas was disillusioned by the tragic loss of his family in an auto accident and he wants nothing more than just die. Without his family, life is just meaningless. He had lost the purpose to live until one day, he received a mysterious message and a voice from the past stir him to fight for his life and the lives of a family he doesn't know.

    Thomas found himself reluctantly drawn into the murderous plot of a dangerous cult that threatens to steal America's future. And as Thomas attempts to expose the cult, Thomas finds himself facing the past he had buried, and his anger towards God who had taken everything dear to him.

    Blind Sight is a very good book. I find it very intriguing and I couldn't let it down. And unlike many other Christian fiction, Blind Sight is not slow-paced, and made you ponder on a lot of things: Mainly the purpose of life, God's plan and allowing yourself to let go when it's necessary.

    Blind Sight address the grief of a man who had lost everything that matters to him, and also shows the reader that God always have the best plan for you, even if you think otherwise. All you need to do is let Him into your life, and He will show you the way.

    Generally, Blind Sight is a very good book to read on a rainy night, and I highly recommend this to those who felt as if God has abandoned them and for those who prefers fast-paced novels.

    I received this book free from Kathy Carlton Willis Communications. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

    A Real "Throat-Gripper" from Start to Finish

    When I'm not writing my own books, I'm reading a book by someone else--but there's never enough time. My reading stack is a mile high! But I've been taking it a bit slower this past week and actually had a chance to read at my leisure. Problem is, I picked up Blind Sight by James H. Pence--and forget leisure reading! The author had me on the first page--first paragraph, actually--and never let go right up to the last word. I read it in 24 hours! (And yes, I took a break to sleep.)

    Seriously, folks, if you want a really good read that'll hold your interest from start to finish, and leave you second-guessing and blindsided at every turn, this is the book for you! It's the first book I've read by this author, but it certainly won't be the last. Keep 'em coming, James!

    Blind Sight Helped Me See!

    New author James Pence captures readers into a thrilling adventure where a dangerous cult threatens America's future. Thomas Kent, angry with God and content to die, discovers himself pulled into action when a former college friend sends his two twin children at the threat of his own life. Drawing upon a promise from years ago, 9/20/42 becomes the dying cry of a man desperate for help with his children in their search for a mom living in hiding. When Thomas and mother, Justine, cross paths, life turns upside down as each page hurls readers through a tumult of dizzying circumstances. Assassins on the prowl, a presidential candidate's reputation at stake, and countless brainwashed converts force Thomas, Justine, and her children toward an unexpected ending that keeps everyone guessing. While such adrenaline-laced work should entice lovers of suspense, particularly suspense from a Christian perspective, those too young or searching for a flowery finish need not apply. Though Justine's children sometimes appear advanced for their age at points, the writing is extremely fresh, innovative, and 'moving,' just as the publisher promises. I would recommend Blind Sight to any fiction lover tired of formulaic adventures or hungry for an inspiring new author. But hold on tight, Blind Sight will open your eyes and help you see life in a whole new way.

    Excellent thriller

    At JFK Airport, Peter Bishop desperately tries to sneak his two young children on a plane heading to Dallas where he hopes a college crony can safely take them to their mother. Peter expects The Fellowship for World Renewal, a fast growing cult, to kill him as a traitor, which they do as he places a call to ¿Uncle¿ Tom Kent, leaving a death bed message: ¿save my children¿.<P> Tom does not understand the phone message or why Peter whom he had not spoken with in years, left it for him. Still he follows instructions to make a package pickup at the airport, but when he sees the package is two kids, he bolts as they remind him of his wife and children, who he killed in a vehicular accident. When he notices the twins in trouble, he helps them escape. Now he and the Bishops are fleeing for their lives as a powerful cult headed by a man expected to run for vice president chases after them. Their only hope is to find Peter¿s wife, hiding in the bayous of Louisiana from The Fellowship for World Renewal who declared her a traitor.<P> This is an exciting suspense thriller that moves rather quickly forward from the moment a panicked Peter places his kids on the plane until the final confrontation. The story line insures the audience understands the demons that eat at Tom and delight with the relationship between the twins. Though Michelle seems much older for her age and Micah handles his handicap with too much ease, fans will appreciate this taut thriller that emphasizes evil is disguised wearing the face of goodness.<P> Harriet Klausner
