It was an okay read.

What three words best describe Tom Stechschulte’s voice?

I had no complaints about Toms Stechschulte's narration. Seemed fitting for a mystery/crime solving type of story.


Any additional comments?

Well... I liked the book, and it was okay... I guess my crutch on this read, is that I've already read "This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank Peretti (amazing books!). Those two books put together amazing stories that balance the dark side AND the light side of Christianity (or lack of). I should add, I really like to read Christian fiction stories that encourage growth as a child of God - with the two prior Peretti books I felt warned and encouraged while reading. I walked away feeling better. Those two books I have recommended over and over again, every time I loan my copies out to friends, they come back raving just as much as I did.

On the other hand, "The Oath" is a mystery/crime story that really seemed to focus heavily on sin alone and paralleled a story of what happens to a community overtaken by sin. This isn't a book that left me wanting to tell my friends about. This books story-line although not terrible didn't seem as well written, and I missed the balance of encouragement of prayer that he included in the books I mentioned before. Although the story was okay, it left more of a feeling of doom and gloom through out the read.
