    Enjoying this story

    While I haven't finished the book yet, I have enjoyed it a great deal. It has been a very exciting story. The 5yr old Jeremy's reactions to some of the situations he was in was very much like a 5yr old but other times, I had a bit of trouble believing. It wasn't enough to stop reading, just felt like a kid that young would have trouble keeping secrets like he did. Unless he was exposed to someone saying damn a lot, I doubt a 5yr old would be thinking damn as often as he does in the story. I could see an older Jeremy thinking or saying it on a regular basis only because kids that age tend to use words like that to appear older. The only other problem I have had with the story, and I know it's not a big deal but it kept catching in my brain, was the use of the word lied instead of laid and using Misses instead of Mrs on the sign for the parents at the funeral. Like I said, not a big deal and not enough for me to stop reading but it's like walking across the floor and catching an uneven place on it each time. Those were really the only things that kept tripping me up in the story. I enjoyed the transitioning back and forth between the younger Jeremy and the older Jeremy. I have enjoyed him learning about his powers. I was heartbroken over his mother's rejection of him and, as a mom myself, I had a hard time with that but I know not all parents are able to accept changes and difficulties when it comes to their families. All in all, a great story and one I am sure most young adults would completely enjoy.

    Interesting

    Interesting story. This is my first read for this author. Not sure entirely believable the way the main character thinks and talks when he was a young child because he sounds older, but it doesn't stand out. Flows well enough. The storyline is enough to make me loojs for author's books.

    Great story

    Love the story. Very well written, however I can't get the next book on my nook. There are two more books but not being available on the nook is very frustrating. Any idea when they will be?

    Great story!

    I am only in the 6th chapter, but I can hardly stand to put my nook down to get a fresh cup of hot herbal tea! The author is doing an amazing job of writing a story that makes me feel as though I am right there watching, hearing and feeling all the sights and sensations that Jeremy is feeling & seeing. The author is doing a great job of taking me from the 'present' time in Jeremy's life to back when he was a little boy of 5 years old. The author depicts a very acurate discription of 5 yr. old action & thinking. I can see my son in many of the thoughts and actions of the pre-accident Jeremy.
    I highly recommend this book even though I have only read the first few chapters.

    Plot was the only good aspect

    I was intrigued by the plot, which was the only thing that kept me from immediately deleting the book from my library. Mr. Soucy desperately needs an experienced editor: his spelling, punctuation, and grammar were atrocious. If you can look beyond the poor presentation, the story was interesting.

    In Blood Tithe by Glenn Soucy, the main protagonist, Jeremy Dav


    In Blood Tithe by Glenn Soucy, the main protagonist, Jeremy Davis is an ordinary, mischievous and happy-go-lucky but accident prone, 5 year old looking for adventure and having fun, but all that changed for ever after he fell into an abandoned tunnel flooded with water and chemicals. With his DNA now altered, Jeremy has paranormal powers that he finds hard to master or control and which severely frighten and threaten his own family.
    This captivating and brilliantly written novel takes you on a journey fraught with danger, full of emotional turmoil, characters both good and evil and a tension fuelled ride that is fast paced and action packed. A real page turner!
    Once started, this novel is very hard to put down and I now look forward to reading Glenn’s sequel and to finding out the next chapter in Jeremy’s extraordinary yet complicated life.
    Blood Tithe comes highly recommended.

    Best series

    I just finished the first four books aand cannot wait to find the fifth one. I have been glued to the edge of my seat. I have laughed, cried, and even prayed while reading this book. The characters will stay with me and i will read this series many more times. I will buy everything this man writes. I like reading this as much as ted dekker.

    An exciting read, but the faith side is kind of sketchy.  Young

    An exciting read, but the faith side is kind of sketchy.  Young folks that like science fiction will love it!
