An absolutely intriguing read! Eric Wilson has the uncanny ability to anticipate his readers' assumptions and then pull the rug out from under them. The result is a uniquely thought-provoking adventure. Wilson takes real events from the real world and manages to discuss them in an intelligent way, without watering down the message of the gospel. Entertaining? Yes. Deeply spiritual? Absolutely. An excellent book for seekers and seasoned Christians alike.
Eric Wilson had me hooked from the start with this fast paced suspense novel. Just when I thought I had it all worked out, Wilson threw in another twist. When asked about his reason for writing his current series of books based on the five senses, Wilson says: Each book follows one of the five senses opened in a supernatural way. We live in a physical world that numbs our senses to the spiritual. I wanted to merge the two worlds in a thought-provoking way.And merge them he does! Thought-provoking? Absolutely! I dare you to come away from reading this book without it impacting you or opening your senses to Gods hidden workings.Designed as standalone novels, it is not necessary to read his first, Dark to Mortal Eyes, before reading Expiration Date, although the books are connected through tie-ins and recurring characters.Eric Wilson has proved himself as an author to watch out for, if his first two books are anything to go by. He masterfully blends together unforgettable characters, plots and subplots that wont let you go. Expiration Date is a novel you dont want to miss.
What if by touching someone you could know when they would die? In EXPIRATION DATE, Clay Ryker suddenly finds himself in just that position, and hes not sure if its a blessing or a curse. In this second book of Eric Wilsons unofficial Senses series, he deftly spins a tale of intrigue while presenting the story of a man whose life is flipping out of control. Having read Erics previous sight book, DARK TO MORTAL EYES, I wasnt sure if hed be able to produce a touch novel of the same quality. He did. Although starting a bit slower than EYES, I wasnt disappointed. And I love the way Eric intersperses history and lore (this time about Russia and the Romanovs) into his stories, right along with the supernatural element were starting to expect in a Wilson thriller.Many of the threads introduced in DARK TO MORTAL EYES are woven through EXPIRATION DATE, as are some of my favorite characters (Josee & Sgt. Turney, for example). By the time I was halfway through the book I started having fun Eureka! moments as pieces of the puzzle missing from EYES fell into place in this novel. However, Eric leaves much room for the continuation of the saga in future stories. So if you havent read DARK TO MORTAL EYES, Id suggest picking it up too as youll have a richer experience if you read the books in order, but EXPIRATION DATE can also stand alone. Excellent book! I cant wait for the next one.
