Soul of the Sun ~ Review

The Soul of the Sun
By Genevieve Crownson

The Soul of the Sun is an interesting book as it tells a story from several different perspectives and times.

When an unexpected act of violence ends one life and alters another, a series of events is set in motion that will affect generations.

Margaret's family is keeping a secret ~ a secret that goes back to ancient Greece, one that could prevent evil from destroying Earth. The only question is which of Margaret's descendants will fulfill this destiny. But evil is stalking them and the Watcher is determined to control this power or to destroy them all.

Told, mainly, from the viewpoints of Margaret, Emma, and the Watcher prepare to be taken on a journey through time as events come together as they were meant to. This is an epic battle of good verses evil.  But can evil ever truly be defeated?  This is a truth that Margaret and Emma must discover before they are destroyed.

This is an interesting story that you may need to read through a second time to fully grasp all the intricacies of the various times that are presented.  Overall this was a well-written story that pulls you into it.  And who can resist that appeal of the ability to travel through time?

I was provided a copy of this book in conjunction with this PUYB blog tour in exchange for my honest review.   


About the Book:
“The hands of time turn on the face of the sun. Only you can move them. If the Watcher controls the hands of the clock he can go anywhere, past or future-- and destroy our planet.”

Since the days of ancient Greece, the Argos dynasty has kept a secret, a mystery passed down through their descendants from generation to generation, in the hopes that the forces of good can stop the evil destruction of planet Earth.

Margaret Ingall is harboring that secret. Time is running out for the descendants of the Argos. They know a great healer and time traveler will be born of their blood. But the only person that knows whom they will call “the soul of the sun” is Margaret’s sister, Abigail. Before she can reveal the healer’s identity, disaster strikes…

Evil stalks them, watching and waiting to find out which member of her family has the ultimate power. Is it Margaret’s own child? Or her beloved granddaughter? Or even herself? Their only clue is a powerful protective amulet that will lead them all in a cat-and-mouse game to discover secrets as ancient as time.

If the Watcher discovers the truth before they do, all will be lost.

Fate, time and love weave together in their struggle to fulfill their destiny. Will Margaret’s fears sabotage her family’s protection? Can the healer accept her gifts in time? And once the soul of the sun is finally revealed, will it be too late?

Her power is incredible. The sacrifices required of her are immense.

Will it be enough to stop the Watcher?
