Book Description:

With two powerful, opposing forces at war, one man is caught in the middle... Ever since childhood, Luke's nights have been plagued by nightmares centered around a beautiful woman and a malevolent monster. Despite the sleeplessness and debilitating dreams, Luke's life has been fairly normal-that is, until he learns that this beautiful woman is real. Even more bizarre? This woman has been dreaming about him as well. 

Suddenly Luke finds his world spiraling into an unknown realm when he discovers the profound link he has with this woman. Powerful forces have placed them in the center of a timeless battle between good and evil, and Luke finds himself facing enemies and friends who conspire to keep him from the truth-a truth that may end up costing him the woman he loves...and maybe even his life. If the woman of his dreams has turned out to be real, could the monster be real too? 

Thy Will Be Done is a refreshingly modern take on the age-old conflict between light and dark. With its memorable characters and whirlwind of a plot, this book promises to be an unforgettable experience.

Thy Will Be Done was not the book I was expecting at all. If appearances can be deceiving then the initial chapters of this book certainly proved it. Julie Fisher lulls her audience into a false sense of security by opening up with a classic star-crossed lovers tale that ultimately leads to an unhappy ending. However by the twelfth chapter I was thoroughly confused and unsure of where I, the reader, was being led.

It took me until exactly halfway through the book before the penny dropped. Normally I’m quite good at sniffing out the conclusion of the story, but Thy Will Be Done took me by surprise. I even slapped myself on the forehead when I realized the title of the book was a sassy clue.  As I continued to make my way through the chapters I happily discovered this book was much more than a typical story about reincarnated lovers bound to suffer all eternity without a happy ending. In fact no one was more delighted then I was when I realized there were supernatural forces at work and their interference was at times maddening.

With a sweet and compelling ending, Thy Will Be Done certainly proved to be deeper below the surface. If you like twists, supernatural lore and a novel that promises to bring to light the essence of freewill than this book is for you.

I gave Thy Will Be Done 3 out of 5 hearts.
