CSFF BLOG TOUR: Numb- John W. Otte | Book Review

CHRISTY AWARD FINALIST:
NUMB
BY
JOHN W. OTTE

*** Special THANK YOU to CSFF for my review copy.***

A CHRISTY AWARD FINALIST!!!

The 15th annual Christy Awards for excellence in Christian fiction will be presented June, 23 2014 in Atlanta.

The finalists were just announced last week & NUMB has been nominated for the VISIONARY category!!!

Even though Numb is up against two other books I loved….I’m so excited for author John W. Otte! Numb has definitely earned its place among the other nominees!!!

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Crusader is numb. He feels neither emotion nor pain, a divine gift that allows him to be the Ministrix’s best assassin.

Whether it’s heretics from within or heathens from without, Crusader is the sword in the True Church’s hand. And if he remains obedient to his superiors, he will be able to let go of his guilt.

But then he’s ordered to kill Isolda Westin. It shouldn’t be a problem. A target is a target. When Crusader sees Isolda’s image, though, something strange happens. He experiences a moment of panic, a wave of emotions–the first he’s felt in as long as he can remember.

In that moment, he realizes he can’t fulfill his mission. He can’t kill Isolda Westin, even if it means he’ll be condemned as an enemy of the Ministrix.

Soon Crusader and Isolda are on the run. Will they be able to learn why the Ministrix wants Isolda dead? Or will they both soon face the harsh justice of the “True Church”?

MY REVIEW:

WOW WOW WOW!!!!
I love this book! I cannot even begin to tell you….but I’ll try;)
Even though Crusader is a ruthless assassin, I still liked this character from the beginning. I suppose it’s knowing his motivation behind his actions. He thinks that by doing what the True Church tells him to do and killing those who are guilty of heresy or just plain evil, Crusader believes his acts of justice will free him from his own guilt.
This book is so full of action and edge of your seat suspense, as well as a bit of mystery. I love love love it! Absolutely one of my favorite reads this year!
The author does an awesome job of sinking readers into the story and once this one got a hold of me, I did not want to let go! I cared about these characters. I wanted Crusader to find the redemption he so desperately needed, yet was so blinded to.

*****5/5 STARS- 2014 FAVE; GET YOUR COPY NOW!*****

    1. Thanks for stopping by the blog John! Yes! I loved it:))) I couldn’t help thinking of the biblical character SAUL/PAUL when I think of Crusader. Such an awesome book in so many ways. Many blessings on your release & nomination:)))
