Book Review Express 5 Star Review Corner brings you Cain, Sins of the Father by Elias Raven. Have you checked out this phenomenal thriller? Check our our review below:
The Cain family has many secrets. The only son Elias, an alpha male and former rock star, has the “look” with a set of eyes and smile that will drop a girl’s panties at 10 yards. He is the heir apparent to the wealthiest family in the world and it’s now time for the transition of power. But some things never go as planned – especially for this family.
When Elias’ one true love Genevieve returns to his life, they start on a journey to unravel the twisted knot that has been laid before them. They enter the serpentine labyrinth of deceit and despair. Two worlds will collide and meet in the middle. Two men will vie for the love of one woman and to the victor will go her soul. There is no second place, and the very gates of heaven and hell will shake as these two gear up for the ultimate confrontation.
The distant past and the modern world will collide on a rocket ride of twisting emotions and imagery. Every story has a beginning, buckle up for this one.
I am not exactly sure what I was expecting when I bought this book. Going by the title I wasn’t sure if it was going to lean more towards the Bible story of Cain or something completely different. My friends were discussing how good it was but were giving me little details (I now know why). As I started reading the book, I soon learned I was reading a wonderful story with references to the Bible Story. The story took a bit of time to develop for me but once it did, I was captivated to the point I read into the wee hours of the morning and wouldn’t of stopped when; I did except I had to get a little sleep before work.
I don’t do spoilers and even sitting to write this review I have stopped and started several times because everything I want to say gives away more than I think is fair to a new reader. So I will say this book does have a good love story to it; both the love of family and that of a man and his lady. The book is a suspenseful thrilling tale as well. You follow the main character, Elias Cain, as he learns not only his families epic secrets but the dark well kept secret that will threaten everything Elias believed to be it the truth. Elias comes to terms with his family duty while trying to keep his family and lady safe. Again that is putting it very mildly but without spoiling this truly magnificent thrilling tale, it’s aptly put.
If I had to give one complaint it would be that it ended in a cliffhanger. I do HATE cliffhangers. However, this is one book when it ended, while I wanted to cuss the author for leaving me hanging, I understood his reason for doing so. Lucky for readers, Book 2 is due out soon. If you like suspense and thrilling storylines, this is the book for your. Well Done Mr. Raven and may I add my hat is off to you for an awesome 1st time book.
