She wonders [...]
Good book. Didn't like the fact that a pastor was acting the way he was. Only thing I really found religious about the book were the Plagues. I'd recommend this book but not categorized as a religious reading.
Ten Plagues by Mary NealyWhat an incredible book. It is a suspense romance taking place in Chicago.

When Keren Is on a stake-out for a missing woman she sees Paul run up to the building and into the group of gang members. She has to wait on her partner before leaving her car, Mick O'Shea. When the building suddenly blows up Keren goes into action helping the kids outside and she sees [...]
The book felt really out of order. I was hoping things would get clarification but it never came. Didn't finish.
Ten Plagues is a new book from Mary Nealy the suspense pen name of Mary Connealy, a Christian Western Romance author. The book revolves around a series of murders by a serial killer that is working off the ten plagues that the bible features in Exodus. You may remember them from such films as The Reaping with Hilary Swank and The Prince of Egypt with Val Kilmer. I had received this book for review and I was hopeful for it. Although, as is seen from my affiliations in my sidebar, I am a Non-Belie [...]
Ten PlaguesTen Plagues by Mary Nealy. Published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. Received by Netgalley.As I've said before, I have been wanting to find Christian authors who write fiction that can tell the message of Jesus Christ through their story as well as serving up an excellent plot for readers to sink their teeth into. I received Ten Plagues by Mary Nealy through netgalley and wanted to see if Nealy could deliver what I was looking for. Sadly, this came up short for me.The story starts out wit [...]
Ten Plagues begins with Chicago PD detective Keren Collins following up a missing persons’ report. Juanita Lopez hasn’t been seen for a week, and Keren’s visit to a condemned tenement building blows up in her face – literally. Keren has the Biblical gift of discernment, the supernatural ability to sense good and evil spirits, a gift which can be both a blessing and a curse. Her gift tells her that there is evil surrounding the burning building, but that the man going in to rescue a teena [...]
Could not wait to be done with this one! And it wasn't the suspense that kept me going. I had to see just how bad it would get. I wasn't disappointed.First the writing. So much telling and not showing. The over use of the past perfect tense:pg 136 - She. him her best squinty gunslinger lookpg 337 - The smell of suffer was like brimstoneThen there were the "cleverly" written phrases 55 - She could see he'd been more prolific than a wheat field full of bunniespg 191 - Paul spent so many hours bein [...]
fallenoverbookreviewsI remember when I bought this book from the dollar store. The title of the book called me to pick it up and see what it was about, followed by me reading the back of the book. As soon as I saw the word serial killer I was like okay this has got to be good.So this is a Christian author who is writing about a serial killer who believes in killing people by the plagues that was sent about back in the day with God and Jesus. Now I have to say I was glad religion wasn't being cra [...]
This book had a more religious tone to it than I expected. None of the descriptions I read really pointed to this being a book about a real fight between good and evil and I never expected it to have as much to do with religion as it did. I am not religious so reading through this was hard. I looked at this book objectively, seeing it as a mystery/thriller with a serial killer. The idea behind the killer is pretty interesting. I don't think it's something that I've seen done before. I was really [...]
5 STARSWell it kept me on my toes guessing to the end. Looking back I can see some clues. I would be very interested to read more from Mary Nealy.Keren is not her full name. She is a detective and her partner is senior Shae.Keren is waiting in her car for her partner when she sees a man running up to gain members at a condemed building. Then everything goes crazy. A bomb was set off and the building is on fire. Keren tries to help get people away from the building.Reverend P or Paul lives at the [...]
What could be better than a crime novel set in Chicago? A lot of things of course, but this one was a pretty decent read. A killer is reenacting the plagues of Egypt in some creative murders, and it is up to a female Chicago detective to stop him. With some help from locals, and a special gift, Keren Collins must figure out what is next, and help stop a crazy person from terrorizing the city.The book starts a little flat, and it seems somewhat disjointed in some places, but overall, it wasn’t [...]

A serial killer is stalking Chicago, using the plagues of Exodus as his signature. Detective Keren Collins discovers the victims are connected to a ministry run by former police officer. This cop, Paul Morris, caused major problems for Keren early in her career, giving her plenty of reasons to be suspicious and hostile toward him.Author Mary Nealy does an excellent job incorporating the spiritual dimension into this suspense story. Demon possession and exorcism are shown in their true cost, with [...]
I own all Mary Nealy's books written under the name Mary Connealy. She writes Christian fiction about cowboys with humor. This one, too, is Christian fiction, but it's totally all serious.It drew me in from the very first line: "A cold chill of evil sletted through Keren Collins' veins."The book is about spiritual warfare in the natural world. Keren Collins operates in the gift of discernment and can feel evil spirits. She is a detective who also must operate in the real world.Someone is killing [...]
I rarely consider a book perfect, but this one is. It's one of the best romantic suspense titles I’ve read in years. The suspense is palpable, the characters unique, both differentiated and believable, and the romance is touching and realistic given the life-or-death circumstances in which the characters find themselves. Ten Plagues is well-crafted, with the right mix of dialogue vs. narrative. I could envision the various locales, from urban and populated to remote, where the action took plac [...]

Paul has problems with his anger and it's one of the reason's why he became a pastor, but throught the book he is conflicted between being a cop and a pastor.Overall Ten Plagues is nicely written and I love [...]
I did not enjoy the first chapter, but the rest of the book was great.I simply had a difficult time getting into the book. I enjoyed how the author had the characters have character flaws. I believe even heroes have flaws and characters in books should reflect inconsistencies within us all. The author's description of Keren's gift was too overstated at times and did not need as much explanation in my simple opinion.
I don't think it was the best book I've ever read, but it definitely kept my attention. The plot pretty easy to follow. And, being a Christian, it was cool to see the theology intertwined into a modern day type of story. All in all, it was the first book in awhile that made me anxious to turn the page and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a good solid story to pass the evenings.
I liked this book. However, there were a few things I didn't necessarily care for.I figured out who the killer was almost 200 pages before it was revealed in the book. It wasn't that difficult to figure out who it was which was kind of a disappointment.Also, the ending was a bit cheesy for my taste.
It was fulfilling & exciting; maybe a bit less action than our generations of minds look for in a "thriller," yet I thought it was an incredible portrayal of God's love & protection when Satan is on his feet & roaming.
A fair read, with some interesting ideas that could have been explored more or pushed further. The romance subplot was a liability.
A little heavy on the religious aspect of the story, but overall, a good suspenseful read!
Awesome book! Check out my review here: writingchristiannovelsspo
This book was not only suspenseful and thrilling but it was spiritual and up lifting. Great book loved it
I am always fascinated when authors incorporate bible with fiction. This book was suspenseful and well written. It had me guessing up to the very end as to "who dun it." Great book!
