A quick review of Union Cross: Sacrifices by Aaron Harris.
From the Lamppost Publishing website:
Turner Johnson’s relationship with the Lord isn’t the problem. It’s his fourteen-year-old grandson, David, who can’t seem to make peace with God and deal with the many issues in his life. But when he unwittingly humiliates the most powerful young man in the city, David suddenly finds himself trapped . . . and in need of a miracle.
Carolyn Cross is content with living an empty life until God calls Walker the Prophet to convict her.
The Bowman twins are on their way to great success, but often find themselves serving their careers instead of the Lord.
This is the first in a series of three action-packed novels about incredible technology, superhuman abilities, and the Lord’s power to do anything through anyone.
Union Cross: Sacrifices by Aaron Harris is the first book in a series. I spent about an hour reading this little book. It was a good hour.
Sacrifices introduces a world where people have supernatural abilities and technology is super advanced. The world dynamics, especially “the Box,” are so fascinating. For instance, there’s a school all about kids building technological devices. David’s ability is particularly unique. And then, there’s Walker who could appear out of nowhere and disappear just as fast. If you blink, you might miss him!
The book deals with topics of God’s love, redemption, revenge, and what it really means to be a Christian–both in action and in spirit. It was an interesting ride, though too short. I wanted to know more about the characters and their motivations.
But I’m definitely interested in the sequel.
