Soul Reader

Soul Reader by Gerard Webster lives up to its billing as a suspense novel. The plot was well written and engaging. While this is the second in the series I was able to understand what was happening in the story. I would like to read the first book as well and I recommend reading them in order. The characters were realistic and their interactions drew you into the story. Seeing the condition of one's soul can be a blessing and a curse as Ward discovers in the book. Christian aspects of this book are overtly Catholic and include Ward and Carrie's desire to live a more Christ-like life and the Christian works of some of the supporting characters. This is not a "fluffy" Christian fiction work. There are some worldly issues confronted by the characters. They all have fallen and been broken, but some are being impacted by Christ. The main theme was Ward's struggle to deal with his gift and his desire to protect those around him. This sends him on an adventure and through the process brings him to the place he has longed to be within himself. It is a well written book that I enjoyed and would recommend as a good fiction read.
