Comments The Invasion of Heaven

  • Linda

    "But truth, answers, questions are all a part of our natures. They define our lives. Without them, life would be plain and unadorned."The Invasion of Heaven deals with the riddle of man's mind. It is the first hesitant step into a journey that ventures into the truly, truly unknown. You, yourself, toss this question about inside of your own head. Why am I here and what, for heaven's sake, is my real, bare-all purpose?Loche Newirth, a struggling psychologist, has received the news that one of his [...]


  • Pouting Always

    Loche Newirth is a psychologist whose patient has recently committed suicide. Newirth is consumed by feelings of guilt and questions what part he had to play in the death. At the same time he is being investigated for the death and he takes off, leaving behind his journal for his mentor Marcus Rearden to interpret. Rearden receives a painting from Newirth for safe keeping that he has been told not to look at and must read through Newirth's journal to track him down after he goes missing. As he r [...]

    The big deep heavy. Gods and giant eyeballs. One of the characters says, channeling the author, perhaps, "When I was very young I remember wanting to write stories, and I did. Composing in a way that brings a reader in and takes them on a journey." Loche Newirth is a painfully ordinary shrink, writing a little prose on the side, and doing his best to help his patients through their pain. Until one turns up dead and authorities believe he is responsible. Okay, so where does the giant eye come in? [...]

    I won this book in a drawing.An artist somehow paints pictures of the afterlife. After he commits suicide, school chums of his start to poke around and find a conspiracy to control the art.Almost Lovecraftian. I quite enjoyed it in that regard.


  • Sue

    I found myself captivated by how the author described things in the story. Here are a couple examples: The cell phone winked alive; She wore a sheer, grey-violet caftan that spilled over her body like a thin layer of evening-lit water. Wow! This book took a little longer than normal to read because I would pause so often and ponder on his words. The story line was something I have never read about before. I look forward to the next chapter in Loche's life and to really understand his gift.


  • Marla

    If you like sci-fi then this is a book for you. Strange, weird and interesting. It's really out there.I won this book through Giveaways


  • CL

    his book was not the normal genre of mystery that I read but it was a great read and the story has a way of drawing you in. If you enjoy a touch of the supernatural and art mysteries, then you will enjoy this book. Great Read. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this ARC.


  • Stacy

    I enjoyed reading this book. If you enjoy Dan Brown, art, and mysteries with a hint of the supernatural, you might like it too. The tenses switch back and forth between the present and the past to indicate when a diary is read, and that is a little difficult to get used to, but that's a minor point.I look forward to reading more.


  • Sarah

    I loved this book! It is smart, creative and has characters that make you love them. I found Keop's way of dealing with the subject matter to be very intelligent and unique. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good read. Looking forward to the next instalment!

    DNF at 10%I don’t like giving up on books so quickly, but The Invasion of Heaven just wasn’t for me. I was excited to receive this from NetGalley because the synopsis is intriguing. I thought I was going to love this and was hoping that I would. This had the potential of being a great story if it had been written differently.I didn’t like the execution. Some novels take a few extra pages of reading before you understand what’s going on, but it still happens pretty quickly. The story stru [...]


  • Tish

    I'm not giving this a rating as I gave up about 20% in. Other reviews lead me to believe that if you stick with it long enough, it turns out to be really good. However, my TBR list is already so long I'll never get through it and I figure an author needs to do something to capture my interest sooner rather than later. I will say that this book is certainly different!Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me an e-ARC of this book.


  • Ammie

    I didn't expect a mystery, but it was very interesting. I especially like some of the theological ideas that are explored via the characters in the book. It has a strange way of feeling "real". Definitely recommended.


  • Ella

    There are a lot of twists in the story and if you don't pay attention, then you'll get lost real quick! Read the rest of my review here: readingisawayoflife/


  • Miriam Sanchez

    I don't think I have ever read a book as original as this one. I thought it was pretty damn great! The twists and turns of the story kept me guessing right up until the end. And even then I was caught completely by surprise. I am almost desperate to continue this story, and cannot wait until I am able to read the next book! Great plot, great characters, great read!


  • ❀Aimee❀ Just one more page...

    This book is difficult for me to review and rate. I'm not going to rehash the description since it's easily accessible. The book had a rough start for me. The reader is dropped in the middle of the action within the mind of a character that is confused about what is going on. This was very disorienting for me and I kept trying to get a grasp on the plot. It did finally even out a bit. The story is told from a few POVs and told out of order, which doesn't aid the reader to form a coherent vision [...]


  • Elisa

    I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Will Dreamy Arts!Full disclosure: the author is from the Inland Northwest and lives in beautiful Coeur D'Alene, Idaho - my neck of the woods. This probably gave this novel an extra layer for me, as the descriptions of the Priest Lake area were even easier to picture and I laughed with some of the "that's Idaho for you" jokes. But it is so much more than that that made me award five stars to this excellent novel. I [...]


  • Sheri

    This book is totally WOW! A rollercoaster ride right from the beginning!! This is one of the best novels in all the thrillers/suspense/paranormal genres that I have read in a very long time. It's almost difficult to put into words how strongly this book affected me. A true page turner from the start that sucked me in and I had a difficult time putting it down. It is filled with surprises, turns, twists and honestly, the end blew me away.I highly recommend this book to lovers of suspense, thrille [...]


  • Diane Galloway

    I feel bad that I can't give this a bunch of stars, but I stopped reading it after about a third of the book. It's just moving too slow and I'm still not really sure about what's going on. I know it's about two men that find out they are brothers - they are supposedly gifted, one with his writing and one with his art. I think the "gods" use their gifts to feel human or something like that. There's a suicide - not really sure how that ties in. All in all, the book was just taking too long to get [...]

    Lately I have no patience for books that don't get to point in the 15%. It is written well, some parts are engrossing. But even after reaching a good 33% into the novel, it still didn't give much clues into the story. It was still building up. For now I give up. The slow pace didn't do for me, even with the very intriguing plot. Might pick it up later for leisure reading.


  • Judith Sanders

    Just finished it. It kept my interest and had some great twists and great character developement. I enjoyed it and now have started the "Leaves of Fire". Couldn't help it, gotta find out where this goes.


  • Lisa Autry

    WOW!An incredible book. The excitement and suspense will keep you riveted until the end. I highly recommend this book,but be warnedYou won't want to put it down!

    good story

    "'The truth is always the best answer.'He looked at me. His eyes were aged and tired, 'Is it? The truth is always *an* answer, but not always hopeful.'"______WOW - just, wow. This book was something unbelievable I found it because I was approved for an ARC of its sequel (Leaves of Fire) on NetGalley - the premise was so intriguing and unusual that I was immediately drawn to see where the book would go. This one did not disappoint. It's populated by madness, secrets, a HUGE freaky-factor, and wil [...]


  • Nathan Schmidt

    I received this book through First Reads, and I am grateful for the opportunity.This was a very intriguing and complex book, and its greatest strength is its exploration of the human psyche and emotional character. The struggles of the different characters to understand themselves and in the process the reality around them, for better or for worse, was very compelling, and you captured their emotional trauma well. I found the twists in the finale to be especially engaging and uniqueUnfortunatel [...]


  • Bonnie Keck

    Kindle Unlimited, the first book but not the 2nd, and the first one doesn't wrap things up in major ways so that is an issue of sorts along with couple others had with it. Actually wouldn't have read this on my own because part 1 being ku but not part 2 but won it in giveaway assume it's physical book and not ebook but may be so wanted to go ahead and take a look.Psychologist Loche Newirth becomes hunted when he sees a painting that opens a window onto the afterlife. An ancient order of men s [...]

    4.5 Stars. This book was on my Christmas list, but I ended up wining it with the giveaways (on my Birthday!). I'm a little conflicted about how to review it. I was really excited to read it and was highly anticipating it, which is always dangerous. The book starts out with events already in motion and you follow two characters as they search for Dr. Newirth. These two characters find a book seeming to be a journal written by Dr. Newirth which fills in the events leading up to when the book star [...]


  • Sandy Adams

    A difficult and confusing story.I found this book very hard to read - I tossed it aside more than once but the premise encouraged me to finish it in the hope it would somehow all make sense. There are lots of odd characters, a constant mixing of the time and who is good vs. who is on the side of evil. Is he or she mortal or immortal, real or imagined? Add to the hodgepodge it is the first in a series so no answers here. Two stars for an interesting idea, but no kudos for the writing style. A big [...]


  • Kristian

    I have loved the concept of this story line for awhile now. I was so excited when I won this book from a givaway. I had access to the second book and found it a bit confusing at first so whan this came in the mail I put the second book aside and jumped into it. It was not a "quick" read for me. I wanted to savor the story and make sure I knew exactly what was going on. So if you are planning a skimmed reading, I would not recommend this book. The ending surprised me although once I knew the end [...]


  • Charlotte

    I didn't read all of this one, so I'm giving it a neutral 3 stars. It's just moving too slow and I'm still not really sure about what's going on. I know it's about two men that find out they are brothers - they are supposedly gifted, one with his writing and one with his art. I think the "gods" use their gifts to feel human or something like that. There's a suicide that one of them feel responsible for - not really sure how that ties in. It seems to be told in multiple POVs and that was con fusi [...]
