I picked up Through the Fire by Shawn Grady from Amazon as I was looking through suspense books. I was impressed with the book and the story throughout the book. Firefighter Aidan O’Neill takes chances and risks that are starting to catch up with him. One of his reckless decisions results in the severe injury of a rookie firefighter and Aidan is placed on suspension. He takes off to Mexico and again ends up in a dangerous situation which results in his death.
After being revived, now he has a difficult time with fire, and this couldn’t have come at a worse time. With a serial arsonist on the loose, Aidan can’t explain why he is experiencing fear and it’s paralyzing him at the scene.
The plot continues and the fires end up being related to the fire that killed Aidan’s father. Aidan has to confront his fears and the reality of hell and a God who loves him. The story is written in the first person which was an interesting perspective. The plot was well thought out and I enjoyed not being able to figure out the ending. Overall this was a great read. The Christian message was there, but I wish it had been a little better spelled out. Still it is a great read and certainly worth the time.
