Book Review: Savior by Anthony Caplan

18 Apr

cover11small-200x300Title: Savior

Author: Anthony Caplan

Genre: Suspense

Publication Date: April 18, 2014

Description (from Goodreads):

A father and son stumble into the secret world of the Santos Muertos, a crime cartel bent on global domination. The son must find his father and keep the secret of the Chocomal, the ancient Mayan code underlying the creation of matter in the universe, from falling into the wrong hands. A story of sacrifice and love set in a contemporary, dystopian America.

Review:

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

This is a difficult review to write because this book has some really good qualities but I had a couple issues with it. After reading the first chapter, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to get through the book; however, after the first chapter it got much better and I’m glad I stuck with it. I do suggest the use of quotation marks in the author’s next novel, though. The lack of quotation marks makes the story much more difficult to follow.

The main characters were likable. I felt sorry for Al and Ricky who continued to mourn the loss of their wife and mother. I was impressed, though, at how quickly Ricky grew up and stepped up when he needed to.

The story got a little slow toward the end but overall it was a good read and I’d read it again (with quotation marks).
