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.

The book pulls you in from the start. I know when books are really good because I don't want to put them down until I finished them. This became one of those books. The main character, Thomas Kent, is heartbroken almost to the point of being paralyzed after his wife and 2 kids are killed in a car accident. All of the sudden he is thrust into a deadly situation where he is trying to keep two 10-year old twins alive until he can find their mother. Oh, and while he's at it, taking down a ruthless, powerful cult that the twins family was ensnared in would be an added bonus. While reading the book, you get an inside look into a cult - how it got started, how it brainwashes people to believe it's agenda, and what it's endgame is. It's really pretty terrifying to think this kind of cult could exist in our world. On the flip side, it's so encouraging to see how God's love and Jesus's gift of salvation could penetrate even the deepest Satanic, cultist influence. And when more than one Christian band together, they can bring down the giant by using God's strength and guidance. The action in the novel is very fast-paced. The whole story takes place over 5 days and has many twist, turns and narrow escapes. But the theme of Christ drawing people to himself is prevalent throughout the book - both in Thomas Kent's life and in the lives of the twins and their mother. The book is easy to read and would be a great weekend read for the adventurer in your life.

Do not read Blind Sight before you go to bed if you have a specific bed time. You will NOT want to put it down. At least that is how I felt. That was refreshing. The story had characters I liked and characters I hated. Each one was realistically drawn out and all seemed to fully react and act the way one might expect. The story starts off with a bang and keeps you curious through out. It is definitely an easy read, because it does not lose steam! The story was told through several of the characters although the main plot is centered around Thomas Kent's efforts in helping this family. I was enthralled by the workings of the cult. It was pretty creepy how things operated, and although I know this was a book, I am also aware that there are specific ways to make a person fold under pressure and totally weaken them. It is also an amazing story of how power can corrupt, and how a painful past if not faced and resolved can be so very damaging. Obviously there is a religious element and struggle in the novel. It lent the message clear for me that God has a plan and we are probably not always going to know what it is. The important thing is to know He is there. Blind Sight is a book that is not only entertaining, but it reminded me that God doesn't guarantee an easy life, but He will always be there. I don't have a star rating, but I would give this a 4.25 star rating if I did. The main thing for me is whether I would recommend this book to others, and the answer is YES. Definitely!

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!

A reprint of a book from 2003, this book was featured in the book Terror by Night, which I reviewed also, this book is a suspenseful, mystery. A exciting book about a cult, trying to move their leader into a high position in the government, they (the cult) are on a search for one of the leaders who defected and who is trying her best to bring them down. Her husband, who was left behind in the cult, makes arrangements to send their children to an old college friend, convinced that he was in danger of being killed by the cult. Knowing that his friend Thomas Kent, would do the best he could for the kids, he was very careful, but was still spotted by the followers of the cult and killed. Thomas Kent, who was facing his own demons and troubles from his past was not sure he could take care of the children. However after he saw how determined someone seemed to be to grab them, he put aside his fears, eventually making peace with his past, and helped the children find their mom. An adventure from the first word to the last, you will not have a chance to be bored by this book. I as a mystery lover would love to see more books from this author. 402 pages $9.99 US 4 star rating.

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.

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¿.

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.

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.
