There’s so much to love about this novel.
I found Dineen’s debut novel really hard to put down. It moved along at great pace plus a series of well managed conflicts (yes, there a few) made me want to get to the next page quickly.
The main storyline is powerful and compelling. And then Dineen overlays a spiritual battle to intensify the drama. It’s this spiritual side that particularly grabbed me. Starting with Lexie’s spiritual gift (you’ll have to read the novel to find out what it is) which I discovered is Biblical, I was fascinated how Dineen seamlessly wove the spiritual in and out of the ‘natural’.
The depiction of evil, both in the form of subtle influence and violent interruption, was very believable. In addition, Dineen demonstrated how easy it is for us to deceive ourselves when we take our eyes of God. This self-deception isn’t necessarily caused by something evil, rather it’s a reflection of the fallen nature of our hearts.
I was often cheering for Lexie and the Holy Spirit as they battled each conflict.
A great debut novel that demonstrates the power of God’s grace and the faith the size of a mustard seed.
If you enjoy supernatural suspense powered by a beautiful love story, you’ll enjoy The Soul Saver.
