The Runner Book Review

Book One
Michael Knight Series

SUMMARY:  Michael Knight had the perfect life - a perfect family, a perfect relationship and a perfect future.  He was to follow in his father's footsteps and preach the gospel to the nations.  But Michael has a secret ... that will take him from being a small-town preacher's kid to the heart of the big city.  Where everything seems golden, glittery and glamorous, he will obtain the opportunity of a lifetime and he will walk down the corridors of power, influence and wealth.  The whole world will be laid at his feet for the taking.  But at what cost?  Will he trade in all he has been for all he could become?
     A. Wayne Gill presents a breakthrough novel of suspense, intrigue and spiritual awakening.  You will be drawn into the lives of the characters as their worlds collide, forcing them to make decisions that will impact generations.  The Runner will grab you from its opening pages and will not let you go.
REVIEW:  This is a great book.  It moves at a great pace and the storyline is very interesting.   I like how the author did some fore-telling in a few key scenes.  They kept me trying to figure out how everything would work out, especially when things would get tense.  The only thing I had a problem with was when timelines with the main characters would cross.  It made it difficult to follow along at times.  But, that is the only problem I had.  I can't wait to read the future books in the series.
