Earthly Concerns By Xavier Axelson

Between love and loss, there is obligation…

It was a peaceful night when Barrett and his daughter were driving home… then something happened. Something sinister.

Between shadow and light, there is uncertainty…

Now the only person Barrett can turn to for help is Anson, a man gifted with psychic abilities beyond reason. But Anson is also his ex-boyfriend, a man whose heart he’d already broken.

If you can see, you have to help.

As Anson delves deeper into the circumstances surrounding Barrett’s accident, he begins to realize that he’s not only in a race against time, but in a battle against his own broken heart and the terrifying understanding that whatever has taken Barrett’s child is a force of evil beyond anything either man has ever encountered.

And between decision and consequences, there are… Earthly Concerns.

My Review:

There is no question about it, I really enjoy Xavier's books.  Earthly Concerns was no exception.  Anson has a special gift.  He is able to see the in between.  He is also able to see the past and the future.  It is a gift or a curse depending on what day it is.  So usually, its a curse.  His aunt has been his teacher throughout his life and reminds him of the responsibility of having such powers.  If  you can see, you must help.  The last person in the world he would have imagined asking him for help was his old lover Barret.  The one man who had broken his heart and shattered his dreams.

Barret has lost his daughter.  He can't come to terms with what he saw and what he knows, so his calls the only person that might be able to make since of it.  Anson was like a breath of fresh air, but Barret had yet to come to terms with his own sexuality.  He has many problems to overcome, and finally come to terms with his feelings for Anson.  Through this tragedy, can he patch up everything?

This book was an excellent short read.  It has a little bit of everything.  Lost love, tragedy, paranormal beings, and the hint at a second chance.  I must warn you about Xavier's books.  :)  They are quite emotional and are guaranteed to wring a response from you.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it for those who enjoy paranormal reads!
