The first installment of “The Chronicles of the Sons of None” by K.M. Paradice is a wild ride. You will definitely not be bored with the storyline as it moves rapidly from the throne room of heaven, to Jerusalem, Miami Beach and even the mythical city of Atlantis. The book is Christian Science Fiction at its best. If you are a fan of the LOST television series, you will enjoy reading this book.
The story follows Connor Bridges, a 21-year old photographer looking for fame and fortune but things change when he meets Joshua who leads him to his calling as the next “keeper” of the key. Connor must fight to keep the key away from the satanic forces seeking the power from possessing the key.
While the pace of the book was exciting, at times there were too many characters to keep track of. There were lots of children, relatives, angels and demonic forces to remember. There were places where I had to re-read some sections just to keep track of who was doing what. I was also a bit uncomfortable making angels with too many human characteristics and even a bumbling angel. I thought it humanized them too easily.
At 224 pages, the book was not difficult to finish and it was also broken up into sections which were easy to follow. You didn’t necessarily have to read the entire chapter if you didn’t have time but I promise you that you will read a lot further than you planned. This book is also designated as “book one” which means there will be a book two at some point. It would be great if they made this series into an audiobook.
