Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Incarnate is a tale of the universal and timeless struggle between good and evil but presented via a rather unique approach, that of reincarnation. Utilizing historical fact as well as the Bible for reference, these authors weave a frightening tale of two forces fighting for the souls of mankind by fighting one another to the death throughout history. Home to one of the authors, the novel's present-day setting is north central Florida, mainly St. Augustine and Gainesville, and was well researched for the local area's history and relevancy to the plot. The storyline employs a character's novel, "The Journeyman Diaries," creating the concept of a story, or stories, within a story. Thus, the authors are able to bring little known facts to life for both the reader and the book's characters. This concept could easily (and ingeniously) lead the way to a sequel, if not a series. But, it is the intrigue and suspense of The Incarnate - and each narrative within - which impel the reader to continue at a breakneck pace to that last page! The concept, theme, plot, and characterizations are fascinating and will surely direct The Incarnate toward recognition, if not a movie. One downside of The Incarnate is that it is currently available in electronic format only. A publusher would serve the reading world well by printing a hard copy version soon.
