I enjoyed parts of this story and other parts just yanked my chain. I enjoyed that there were horsemen with different powers and each had to be trained to come into their power by a Helper. That way we could grow with Jacob as he developed into the warrior he was to become.There were some things in this book that I just couldn't wrap my head around. Land of Nod ... really? Isn't that something out of a Narnia book? I am dying, I see the light, I accept God, now I am almost omnipotent. Angels are like the servants of God, so humans are better off because they have a soul? Hmmmmmmm.I will give a little slack to the author, as this is her first novel. Good idea, good story, good beginning.
