REVIEW: The Just Beyond by Mark Tucker

thejustbeyond

Publication Date: December 7, 2013
The death of his soul mate in a tragedy for which he blames himself leaves Michael Chandler broken and alone. The last thing he needs is for a terrifying apparition to appear with an ominous decree. But that’s only the first in a string of eerie occurrences that will throw his world into chaos and his life into escalating danger. Scared out of his mind, he will be framed for a murder, run afoul of police and a ruthless criminal, and flee by night across the country with a mysterious, enigmatic hitchhiker. In the thick of this maelstrom he’ll cross paths with an old flame, a beguiling vixen with her own life-and-death predicament that will force Michael into an impossible choice.

But Michael has something going for him – a secret that not even he knows. And when he stumbles onto an astounding metaphysical discovery, his dire straits and the mad universe around him begin to look very different.

Nice guys finish last? Wrong. Nice guys rock, with a hidden power their enemies can scarcely imagine. And Michael Chandler is about to become their poster child.

Review – 

I got the book from the author and Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock for an honest review. I give this book 4 Fangs. Michael is a self sacrificing do-gooder who goes out of his way to help others. With his share of loss in his life he still has faith in right and wrong and helping others. Unfortunately, in an effort to save a child he ends up going against a corrupt political candidate. Follow his story full of twist and turns and way to many chance encounters with people whom he doesn’t know but who know him. Mystery, paranormal and faith keep you wondering what will happen next.

 
I can’t say I have 1 favorite part because every single time he makes someone else’s day I fell in love with him a little more. But every time disaster strikes him I cried for him too.

While I found the book to be a little long, it was worth it to read the end. The Just Beyond is the start of a trilogy. However the next books aren't out yet but don't worry the ending sets you up for the next book without leaving you feeling as if your cut off drastically in the middle of the story. Independent reviewer Colette Wills

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
MARK

Once upon a time, Mark Tucker walked away from a perfectly good job in a Seattle corporate law office and moved to a picturesque beach town to pursue his creative dreams. In addition to writing fantasy and science fiction with encouraging success, he is a musician, songwriter, audio producer, and developer of computer games. He fancies himself a low-grade amateur scientist, hunting fossils and keeping current with developments in physics and cosmology, and counts among his dearest moments the first time he found the Andromeda galaxy with his telescope. He enjoys travel, the less scripted the better, and collects representative coffee mugs and Hard Rock Café City Tee shirts from the locales he visits. A collection of African and Polynesian tribal masks adorns the walls of his den. He delights in the beauty and temperament of the Hawaiian islands, and plans to settle on Kauai when circumstances permit.


Mark considers The Lord of the Rings the most satisfying fiction he has ever read, and holds writers Philip K. Dick and Jonathan Carroll in awe.


Mark’s incurable vices include a fanatical devotion to the band Genesis (to the point of sitting happily for two hours in shorts and sandals in the pouring rain for their reunion concert at the Hollywood Bowl) and an almost religious reverence for Batman. There may be therapy for this, but for Mark it is much too late.


All of Mark’s obsessions are creative. He plays guitar, keyboard, and most passionately drums, producing his own and other artists’ recordings in an elaborate home studio. He paints in acrylic and draws cartoons. He taught himself computer scripting, and can’t be bothered with food or sleep when piecing together a mod for the role-playing game Skyrim or creating an original world with RPG Maker. He loves playing games too, most fondly the Ultima series where ethical choices play a central role. But “making things” in any art form is what truly lights his fire.
