    I found Jude to be a compelling, thought-provoking read. The desire for political power by billionaire Jude Asher clashes with his twin brother Tom’s lack of interest in any aspirations that throw him into the public eye. A suspenseful atmosphere permeates the story through the mysterious forces that seem to further Jude’s efforts.
    Some scenes were a bit slow in moving the story forward, but for the most part, I felt drawn into the action, wondering when or if Jude’s efforts would be foiled. 
    Characterization was well done. I especially enjoyed some of the psychological introspection revealed in Tom’s character as he expressed concern for his brother, yet harbored a reluctance to get involved with his political aspirations. His cavalier attitude toward his incredible wealth gives him a much more humanitarian minded world view than that of his twin brother.
    I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy books that deal with political figures and the wielding of power, as well as those who appreciate a well thought out story with a hint of spiritual warfare.
    Thank you to David C Cook for providing this ebook copy.

    Well, what can I say??

    I gave this book a 5* rating because I know there those who like these kind of books... I didn't like it because there were too many long winded explinations about things that I just couldn't wrap my mind around... boring book to me...
