Extreme Prejudice: Imogene’s Message

When extreme religious fundamentalists known as the Phineas Priesthood led by Ezekiel Yates and his three cousins, target Xantara Pembroke because they believe she is a witch, they launch a major conflict between unworldly disciples of good and evil. This 60,000-word, action-packed thriller shows the twists and turns of both sides as they try to destroy or save the souls of earth. 

Xantara is a Guardian of Avebury Circle, an ancient monument near Stonehenge. For over three thousand years, wives of eight village families have performed ceremonies to heal local people, with power handed down from first daughter to first daughter. 

Xantara’s first daughter Imogene is “accidentally” killed on the Isle of Angels, and her father Braeden is distraught. Ezekiel persuades him to join him, to ensure his daughter’s home in heaven. The doctor quickly realizes he’s made a mistake, but it’s too late. 

Imogene is brought back to life by the Light Beings at Avebury Circle. Ezekiel’s family commit several atrocities in the name of God, and vow to destroy Imogene to stop her delivering a message from the Council of Elders. 
The fast-paced battle which follows pits the Phineas Priesthood against the Pembroke family, and the evil entities against the Light Beings. An explosion demolishing a church apparently wipes out the Priesthood. But did it, really? 
Will the world believe Imogene’s incredible message?

Imogene’s Message: by Australian author, Christine Sherborne is without a doubt EPIC! This is book one of the Imogene series, I enjoyed this book so much I already have started reading book II. Author Sherborne has an incredible talent for telling a story. At no time was there a chance to catch your breath. Roller Coaster doesn’t even come close to what a wild ride this first book is. Not only action packed but emotionally charged.

Xantara, is a Guardian of Avebury Circle, an ancient monument near Stonehenge. For over three thousand years, wives of eight village families have performed ceremonies to heal local people, with power handed down from first daughter to first daughter. However, a group of extreme fundamentalist have other plans for Xantara and her family, especially Imogene.Without giving away key plot elements, I have to say, all the characters are so three dimensional that they leap off the page. The action is fast and to the point, If you blink, the bad guys have taken you! Several times throughout the book, I found myself thinking, holy hell! That did not just happen! If you want to get into an amazing series, grab yourself a copy of Book one now! 5 Stars Indeed!

“Imogene’s Message” is a gripping thrill ride of religious extremism run horribly amok. Christine Sherbourne revives the ancient hysteria of witch-hunting when young Imogene is suspected of being a witch by the fanatical Phineas Priesthood. While this story is, first and foremost, an action-packed thriller, it also inspires the important questions of what separates constructive religious impulses from destructive ones; and how does a group of people who begin by contemplating their relationship with God end by committing and act of murder?Sherbourne takes us on a breathtaking and shocking adventure through worlds that we may not have known to exist, of both the earthly and ethereal kind. The characters are richly developed and the prose ferries between fast-paced and demonstrative in precisely the right places.This is a paranormal thriller that I’d put on par with some of Stephen King’s work, and it hits you right between the eyes with the force of a flying Malleus Maleficarum. If you are a fan of paranormal thrillers, this one belongs in your collection!

Imogene’s Message: A Thriller of Extreme PrejudiceI must admit that I have never read a thriller before, so this was my first experience with the genre. It was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. In one moment I was thinking, “Ooooh, how pretty!” And in the next I was being shocked and horrified by the events. Sherbrooke certainly pulled me into her world and sent me tumbling through the suspense of her characters lives.This is not a happily-ever-after book, not even a happily-for-now. She has set up a series here that will draw you in, keep you on your toes, and make you want to run to the sequel for more.

On a more scholarly note, I did a lot of research into animistic religions in graduate school, and for this book, Sherborne hits it on the head. She does an amazing job staying true to the beliefs and values of New Age religions. I only wish that she made more of an effort to offset the violence of the extremists with the goodness of the true believers in both the Christian and Muslim religions.
