ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
An unwed (and unwanted) teen pregnancy with two possible fathers. Abusive relationships. Drug and alcohol addiction. Rape and molestation. The struggle to understand grace, forgiveness, and free will versus predestination. The Judas Ride hits the road running in the opening pages, where Sonia and Xavier argue explosively about whether Sonia should have their unborn child and about who the father is: Xavier, a struggling Christian, or Vader, an abusive and abused drug dealer. As the pages turn, readers continue to meet a hodgepodge of troubled teens and eclectic characters, including Pastor Manny, a quirky immigrant pastor infatuated with John Wayne. Pastor Manny desires to help the tortured souls in his community but finds that it takes more than unconditional love to reach them. Secrets literally kill in The Judas Ride, an edgy, in-your-your face Christian novel that boldly explores the struggles of modern-day young people.

I posted a review last week. I have a lot of thoughts about this book and I tend to be blunt in my reviews regardless if the author is a Christian or not. I would hope that the review I've written is read for it's intended purpose and not as a personal attack on the author. I don't know this author and I'm not one to slam others since I'm an author myself, but this book truly needs an overhaul to be readable. If I said anything other than how I truly saw it I would lose credibility with people who read my reviews. The concept of the story is good but the delivery and a lot of other things left a lot to be desired. I would not recommend this book for many reasons.
