BEYOND DEATH by Deb McEwan – my review

on 31/01/2017

This book has been lying in my kindle reader for a while, because it is not the sort of read you just nibble on as a fun snack. With so much death as 2016 drew to a close, it seemed an appropriate topic to tackle.

I have to admit I had no idea what to expect ftom this story, but the premise seemed intriguing and the catchy beginning hooked me from the start. Writing about the paranormal is like dancing the thin line between poignant and unsubstantial, but author Deb McEwan certainly has important things to relay. Despite the afterlife topic and the element of ghost, angels and devils, the author manages not to turn this into a horror, but more a contemporary family drama. In fact, the horrible events in the book keep happening in the “real” life, not in the beyond. It felt gratifying to read how the villains are dealt with, although the author never makes it all peachy and nice, aware that the battle of evil vs. good is eternal.

Interesting plots and subplots which all intertwine and merge, clean writing and an uncommon premise will keep your interest throughout the story, especially if you like reading about angels and the afterlife. We all wonder what comes next, right?
