Rapture by Phillip W. Simpson Book Tour

I really enjoyed this book. The things that happened felt so real as if you were in the book also. I seriously thought that Phillip did a fabulous job, I felt every emption, I loved the action parts, the ending was amazing Sam seemed like someone that you would have on your team if something like that ever happened in real life.

The book was fast paced and I was left wanting more because I didn't want it to end. I was stunned by how much detail and information was put into the story especially because it was only 131 pages long. The Biblical and Fantasy parts of the book were really well written it was one of the reasons I wanted to read it and especially cause it got really great reviews!

I usually tend to read books about romance which are almost all written by women so this is like a breath of fresh air, kind of out of my comfort zone. I don't know what else to say about this book other than you definitely need to read it because you are going to love it as much as I did.

There were amazing twists in the book, the fight scenes were tremendous and well done. I'm sure everyone loves a good fight and Sam was a great character he put up a great fight, he wasn't going to give in for any reason. Considering that he was bleeding all over the place in those last couple of pages. Great story and plot that includes amazing characters. I give it 5 stars
