Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.
When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review, courtesy of Deal Sharing Aunt:
Visions of the Last Adam
by Rafael Garcia (Last Adam)
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Set against a surreal, modern-day backdrop, Visions of the Last Adam reveals that there are two Gods: the Father of Jesus and the Gentile God of Michael and his angels during the Second Roman Empire of the Technology Age.
Michael and his angels have kicked Satan and his angels out of heaven, becoming the Servants of God called the Elect, Predestine, or the Lost to battle the whoring hearts and eyes of humans on Earth. Satan, a control freak who wants all the best things in life, uses Quantum Mechanics to claim ownership of foreign lands. Jesus Christ captures the Gentile God as God the Son confronting oppression, bringing in the Word of God—through crystal-clear dreams—to rescue Servants of God when they take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, bringing a new type of resurrection of Jesus. Their goal? To create a new Jerusalem and provide a portal between the new heaven and the new Earth.
This book was a nice read for me because it centered on a few of the people in the Bible rather than everyone. It was easier for me to understand. The author talks about creating a new Jerusalem and making the world a different place. The end-times are seen through a whole new light. I really enjoyed chapter six and the information on the different seals. The author includes graphs, scripture and prayer to get his point across. I am giving this book a 4/5.

Here’s what another reviewer is saying:
If you have looked around the world lately, you may have noticed a somewhat looking towards the future or just plain yearning to get to Heaven. Many of us, can’t wait for the rapture to take place because of the weariness this world brings. There are so many situations and terrible calamities that its hard to keep up with sometimes. Rafael Garcia is new to the scene, he has taken the end times prophecy and written a somewhat fictitious claim on true to life events. This book is anything but boring but I’m sure the magnitude that will actually take place will far outweigh anything we could ever create in our own minds.
If you would like to take a peek into someone else’s view of what this Heavenly battle will look like than you are in for a treat! To learn more, please visit this link.
