HE DEFEATED DEATH. WILL HE BEAT BUREAUCRACY?
Rooms at the Dry Bones Society are filling up as more and more Israelis leave their graves to rejoin the living. But not everyone is happy to see them.
When Moshe Karlin stands up for their rights, his quest for a brighter future leads through a minefield of treacherous politicians and brutal criminals. Will he usher in an era of peaceful Utopia or trigger a civil war?
Elsewhere in Jerusalem, a recovering prophet hides his apocalyptic delusions, a scientist unearths the shocking secret to peace in the Middle East, and a lovesick suicide bomber wanders the streets in search of his own personal redemption.
In the midst of it all, one chronic latecomer is on everyone’s mind—the Messiah!
An Accidental Messiah is the second novel in the award-winning, “highly original,” and “heartwarming” Dry Bones Society series.
If you enjoy page-turners sprinkled with mystery and adventure, humor and non-stop surprises, then you will love this romp in the Jewish legends of the Messiah and the Final Redemption.
The above taken from Goodreads. I have received this e-ARC in return for my honest review.
This is a continuation from An Unexpected Afterlife, the second book of The Dry Bones Society trilogy. I've thoroughly enjoyed the first one hence my expectation is much higher this time around. Still a page turner with many new characters flooding into the book, unfortunately, I did get lost this time. Thankfully, with the few main characters weaving in and out, I was able to grasp it and kinda enjoy it overall. It's truly thought provoking touching on politics, religion and science, Dan Sofer had definitely done a thorough research and made it so relatable especially with our current world political stigma.
Overall, it's an entertaining book which I can totally imagined it like watching a movie in the cinema. It's intriguing plots had me finishing it sooner than expected. There may be fillers here and there, sometimes predictable plots but it was enthralling nonetheless, fast paced yet with a straightforward prose. With such ending, can't wait to start on the last book, A Premature Apocalypse! Resurrection, Messiah, Restart... I sure hope it ends with a big bang!
