Wayward Son Review

Excuse the pun, but this review is way late.  I apologize for that, and here it is.  
ABOUT THE BOOK
Buried near Italy's Mount Vesuvius is a remarkable observatory containing artifacts dating to the earliest record of human events. Only one person-the Getty Museum's Amanda James-can unlock the mysterious doors that guard the chamber.

But once inside, Amanda is shocked to discover evidence left behind by a notorious biblical killer-who long ago wandered off the pages of history.  

The first novel of a series, WaywardSon takes the reader on an amazing voyage, where epic adventures in Egypt, Greece, China and Rome collide with modern-day intrigue and suspense.  


What a surprise this book was for me...totally unexpected.  The book follows Cain through an immortal life following God's curse (an interesting speculation, albeit one that I do not believe!)  He stows away on Noah's Ark and survives the great flood, then lives on through the decades.  We see Cain through various big events in history, which I found interesting.  I do like historical fiction.  I also like stories about archaeological discoveries, and this was quite a discovery!  
With quality writing, these authors deliver a unique story that is fun to read--remembering it is fiction.  The characters are well-developed, and the plot is fast-paced.  This book is the first in a series.  I wonder where the next one will take us!

I received this book from LeAnn Hambly and GlassRoads PR in exchange for my honest review.
