As you may know from either reading or having seen my books, I’m a big fan of the time travel genre. When I saw that my blogging friend, John Howell, had written a book with time travel as part of the plot, I couldn’t resist. But, John’s book isn’t just about time travel. It’s so much more than just time travel
James began a road trip alone in his 1956 Oldsmobile. He stops for a hitchhiker only to discover she is his childhood sweetheart, Sam, who disappeared seventeen years before.
The pair visit a number of times and places and are witness to a number of historical events. The rules dictate that they do no harm to the time continuum. Trying to be careful, they inadvertently come to the attention of Lucifer who would love to have their souls as his subjects. They also find a threat to human survival and desperately need to put in place the fix necessary to save mankind.
The question becomes, will James find his eternal home in grace or lose the battle with Satan for his immortal soul and the future of human life with it? If you like time-travel, adventure, mystery, justice, and the supernatural, this story is for you.
That’s the summary from Amazon, and let me tell you, a lot goes on in this book. There’s surprises almost every time you turn the page. I had several moments where I thought to myself, “I can’t believe that just happened” and then on the next page something even crazier would happen. John Howell’s Eternal Road is a ride I thoroughly enjoyed. Here’s an even more interesting aside: I finished this book four days ago. James quest to find his eternal home ends in a certain location, which turns out to be exactly where my siblings and I are going tomorrow to spread my father’s ashes, making that his eternal home too. Mind blown.
