Scott Weaver finds himself stuck in purgatory. He is given the task to heal people and leave purgatory within a stipulated time or forever remain there. Scott goes about fulfilling this task, but something happens to make him suddenly retract his decision. He decides to face eternal damnation than save his soul. What made him choose this dangerous path? Will Scott ever find a way to redeem his soul? Find out in this intriguing novel.

Healers was an intriguing book from start to finish. It was so exciting and captivating that I couldn't put it down once I started reading. I remembered needing to run some errands but suspended them till I was done reading. That was how much my attention was locked on the book.

The story was told from Scott's perspective. I saw the story build to a climax. Brooke Reynolds sure has a knack for intertwining surprising details in a story. For instance, when I read the part where Scott met Mark beaten up, I assumed that he would save Mark at once. However, I was utterly blown away by what transpired. Considering the flow of events, I expected the book to end in a certain way. The shocking twist at the end kept me frozen for a couple of seconds. Apologies for being cryptic; I wouldn't want to spoil the book for you. The suspense and unexpected twists and turns were the primary reasons I found this book exciting. The author made the story so unpredictable that I couldn't wait to see what happened next.

On a final note, there were a few minor errors in the book. However, they didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. I usually expect to encounter a plethora of mistakes in books of this kind. I was so happy to be disappointed. I commend the editors for a job well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and found no reason to fault it. Not only was it well written and professionally edited, but it was also a unique storyline, as I've never read a book with an exact plot. I would give it a rating of 4 out of 4 stars, as it was such an exciting and captivating book. I would recommend the book to lovers of thriller books; there's enough thrill to keep you turning the pages. It is not suitable for a younger audience due to some sex scenes and the heavy profanity.

Thank you for your review. This does sound like a unique storyline - I'm intrigued to find out why the main character chose damnation instead of heaven.

The title and the cover caught my attention. It appeared to be quite interesting, but the profanity is not appealing. As it contains a lot of twists and turns and unexpected events, I expect this book will be enjoyed by those that like Thrillers. Great review.
