John Bowman's Cave: Dystopian Urban Fantasy Action Adventure: Archery, Spirituality And Redemption by Erron Adams

I think by the very long subtitle this was a book that doesn't easily slot into a genre. I found the action adventure part the most enjoyable and that's why it got 4 stars. Click on the picture to take you to Amazon.



I found it quite hard to place this novel; Adventure, Metaphysical or something else? I think this one doesn’t fit a niche. The writer maybe wanted to explore what happens to you if you die when you still have many unresolved issues with a loved one. (Did John die looking for his wife while looking for her after a fight?) This book poses as many questions as it answers, which is a good thing if you like your books to have a deeper meaning.
I found the parts I enjoyed the most were when John joined the tribe of the Rory. He learns their ways while remaining an outlander (Outsider) This universe the writer has created is a fascinating one, with different Tribes and well developed characters, and we set off on a cracking adventure trying to find a captured tribeswoman. Maybe the metaphysical was a bit over my head, but if you a lover of adventure you will still enjoy this book. Take from it what you want as it is well written, at times very poetic, but also some fast paced action.
