good morning every one

Good Sunday all , hope you are all having a great weekend. Today we are reviewing HEAVENLY
VISION by Koos Verkaik

                     BOOK BLURB
Nothing is what it seems, in this new, exciting Koos Verkaik novel…
It starts with the finding of an old manuscript hidden in an old atlas of the Cape of Good Hope, around the year 1745.
“Allart Vroom climbed down from the ship, and we stood ready to catch him,” wrote Captain Adriaen Kalf. “His clothes, his flesh, his bones pulverized in our hands. He formed a small heap of powder at our feet. Please, believe me—it is not, like someone suggested, the contents of broken hourglasses.”
Jan Glas, an Amsterdam publicist, reads about a machine that could cause the end of the entire world! Of course, he wants to find out the truth about the remarkable manuscript!
A long journey takes him to England and the USA.
A peculiar man crosses his path - Wesley Dunn, Raso Preacher, Center of the Heavenly Vision, Franks Knight, Florida, USA.
This man says that the world will be destroyed by ‘the Machine of Colton’, which is also mentioned in the manuscript that Jan found! Only a few people will survive – the true followers of the odd Mr. Wesley Dunn, and the Raso way of life!

Murder, mystery and intrigue will keep the reader guessing as to what is going on. Is the world coming to an end, and if so, who will survive?

                           MY REVIEW
  What can I say about a book the combines mystery , intrigue a machine that will destroy the world . An old manuscript . A quirky set of friends that are out to save the world. You have a  great read .
 It starts out in the Cape of Good Hope when an old manuscript and compass is found . Which is read by Jan Glas who goes on a mission to find the truth behind the manuscript . Which takes him from England to the states . In an attempt to find out the truth and find out if the world will end and who will survive .
    The author takes us on a fun filled ride that takes us from the past to the present seamlessly . The story takes us from The Cape of Good Hope to England and across the pond to the United States . You don't know what will happen from one moment to the next . You will be sitting on the edge of your seat as you read. Koos unique writing style will keep you reading . I read this book in one sitting . I just couldn't put it down . The mystery alone kept me reading and wanting more . I didn't want the book to end .
  The cast of characters are very unique and kind of quirky . From Jan a publicist and book dealer that stumbles across the manuscript that takes him on a fantastical journey . Where he meets some unusual characters that help him along his journey.  They are such quirky and actually somewhat lovable characters . You just don't know what they are up to and if they actually will survive . As you read you will shake your head at them sometimes .
  If you want a book that has unique story line and some quirky lovable characters. That is full of mystery and intrigue. This is the book for you . The author will take you on a mystical journey from the past to the present and back . So if you want an enjoyable book that will keep you reading well into the night . Give this book a chance , I don't think you will be disappointed .
