ABOUT THE BOOK
He holds the power to make the young old and the old young again.
One night amid the tremors of death in the intensive care unit, Nurse Peggy Chandlar witnesses an incredible phenomenon that compels her to find out what really happened to Dr. Francis Anderson.
Ian Moore is pursued by those who would exploit his gift for their own selfish and destructive means. Hunted and threatened, he is forced to risk his life as time rapidly slips away. When the use of his powers gives Dr. Anderson new life, his years of hiding may have come to an end.
Haunted by the fear he will die before he can find someone worthy enough to possess the power of the gift, Ian sees only one solution. In a last, desperate attempt, he must risk a plan that will either bless or curse mankind forever.
This book was unlike anything I have ever read. How does an author even think to write about someone who can take age from one person and pass it on to another? It is mind boggling and mind blowing all at the same time. I like the way this man was presented in the first several chapters – kind of like Mr. Mysterious. Comes to do his transfusing (that’s a word, right!?) and then disappears. It added a fun layer to the story trying to figure out who it was and the reasoning behind it.
There was some romance in this book, but I have to be honest. I did not enjoy it. I won’t ruin the who and when, but it just didn’t feel natural to me. In fact, I really thought perhaps the girl would end up with a totally different character, and I was rooting for that. That being said, I don’t think this book needed a romantic storyline at all. I was actually enjoying the storyline without it. This is just my personal preference however. Some readers may find they really like the element.
Overall it was quite an interesting storyline that I would like to read more of in the future. It brings out the imaginative reader in me which I quite enjoyed. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
