Amanda G. Stevens: No Less Days

Kelly Bridgewater

David Galloway can’t die.

How many lifetimes can God expect one man to live? Over a century old, David Galloway isolates himself from the mortal humans who die or desert him by making a quiet life as a used bookstore owner in Northern Michigan. But then he spots a news article about a man who, like him, should be dead.

Daredevil celebrity Zachary Wilson walked away unscathed from what should have been a deadly fall. David tracks the man down, needing answers. Soon David discovers a close-knit group of individuals as old as he is who offer the sort of kinship and community he hasn’t experienced for decades—but at what cost?

David finds himself keeping secrets other than his own. . .protecting more than himself alone. He’ll have to decide what’s worth the most to him—security or community. When crimes come to light that are older than any mortal, he fears the pressure is more than he can stand. What does God require of him, and is David strong enough to see it through?

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed Amanda G. Stevens Haven Seekers series. With each consecutive edition to the series, I was more involved with each individual character and I couldn't wait to see where the series ended. Stevens grabbed my attention with the concept and delivered what she promised. So of course, when I heard she was writing a new novel No Less Days, I really couldn't wait to get my hand on a copy. Boy, am I glad that I did.

Stevens does a good job at creating stories of what if? What if Christianity had a bigger impact on the global scale? What if you couldn't die? She took No Less Days in a way I didn't see coming, but I throughly enjoyed it. She isn't afraid to talk about the dark issues in Christianity and throw it into a literal story. Her writing is excellent. I loved following David around in this story and watching him interact with his changing world.

The plot was definitely something I haven't read anywhere, and I do read ALOT, so this was a refreshing tale to enjoy. I got caught up in the story from the beginning, and I really didn't want to put the story down. I finished it one day. What a great ride! The plot is filled with twists and turns I didn't see coming. Stevens had me turning the pages quickly to wonder what was going to happen next.

I don't know if there is going to be more to the story as in a series, but I hope Stevens has more to this series up her sleeve because I would jump in line to read the rest of the stories.

Overall, No Less Days by Amanda G. Stevens is an unique story with fascinating characters filled with many unexpected turns. I recommend this novel to fans of James Rubart. Both authors touch on spiritual concepts in the normal world.

I received a complimentary copy of No Less Days by Amanda G. Stevens from Barbour Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 5 out 5 stars
