The Journeys of John and Julia: Genesis (Book #1)

The Journeys of John and Julia: Genesis (Book #1) - Aurelia This book was somewhat of an interesting read for me. I found myself somewhere in between really not liking it and being able to tolerate it. I think the part that made it tolerable for me was the fact that it was a really easy read.

The character development in this book is sub par at best. You get to know enough about John and Julia, but then there are a host of other characters that just don't get enough attention There is this group of 23 that you really only get to know the names of some of them. You get a gist of who's in charge of this big group, but there is next to no background on them for you to draw on. If the author did this on purpose then they accomplished their goal. It makes for a very frustrating read for me though. Some other reviewers may like that about the book, but I didn't like it at all.

The plot development was equally as sub par. I read through the entire first book and have no idea where this story is going. All I know is that there is some satellite going into space that this group of 23 is going to try and stop by using John and Julia in some way. Other than that there isn't much else going on. The entire first book was spent on getting Julia to believe that there may be such a thing as ghosts and spirits in the world. There was no action or build up that made you want to continue reading on to the next book.

It was mainly for these two reasons that I gave this book 1 star. It did nothing for me and I won't be reading on in this series. However, I would like to thank to author for sending me a copy for a review.
