Edgy Christian Fiction #1

                                                        


                                                              And the Beat Goes On

Edgy Christian Fiction , a topic and a genre that I have come to love and enjoy -that is in two ways -two separate genres bought together to create one heck of a good read. The first and main part is Christian Fiction - this means that in some way or another it contains references to Christianity and the second part - Edgy which basically means pushing the genre - Christian to the boundary line and over a bit , exploring more into the subject at a rate that others may be a bit wary of reading. It is the edgy content that makes the book exciting and gives readers a more thrilling experience.

Review - And The Beat Goes On - Tracy. L. Kraus - 2009

An Archaeologist is always an occupation that I have thought to be interesting and intriguing ,imagine digging through the earth to uncover amazing artifacts, relics of history. However, you would need to have a love of dirt to thoroughly enjoy the occupation and a love of being out in the heat as sometimes the digs can take hours , though it would be an easy way to get a nice tan. Whenever I see the words Archaeologist , it reminds me of the quote from the Mummy Movie "I may not be an Adventurer , I may not be an Archaeologist , but I'm a Librarian"- I love this and am going to get it printed on a Tshirt eventually due to being a librarian myself.
Whilst digging in the mountains of Zimbabwe in Africa , Canadian Archaeologist Mark Graham finds a set of bones that he believes are in fact dinosaur bones more to the point "fossilised remains of the Pterodactyls". However hoping to uncover more dinosaur bones , Mark and his team are surprised that in fact they have found what closely resembles gigantic human remains - bones of course.
As the story gets on , the bones are soon to be speculated as being those of a Nephilim , a pre-flood race of people whom were supposed to be descended from both Gods and Men ,like those on the movie Percy Jackson and Fallen starring the cute Paul Wesley aka Stefan from The Vampire Diaries.
Due to the Archaeologist's teams skepticism , they find that their dig site has been sabotaged which results in both their discoveries and lives in danger.
We read as Mark must discover who is at the bottom of this and figure out a way to safeguard his findings and even more his reputation in order to protect the bones and help back up evidence to solve the mystery behind the Nephilim.
