7 reviews for The Insane God

  1. David Brin

    “A mystery, a terror, intervention and the Power of Love.”

    David Brin, author of The Postman and EARTH

  2. Kirkus Reviews

    “Sarah, specifically, is intriguingly complex, and her journey of self-discovery is profoundly moving. Nightmare on Elm Street meets The Stand.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  3. Darrold Wagner

    “Not only do we get to explore Good vs. Evil, LGBTQ+ issues, and insanity, but we finish with a rip-roaring action-packed battle. This book has it all.”

    Darrold Wagner, Amazon Vine Reviewer

  4. T. E. MacArthur

    “There are those who accept and those who reject Sarah’s transition – sometimes including Sarah herself. She is left with the question of how to bring the world into the truth and acceptance of its own danger when it barely accepts her truth and existence. This is an Urban Fantasy, right for the modern age, that will tug and yank you in all sorts of directions until you get to the last satisfying page.”

    T. E. MacArthur, author of A Place of Fog and Murder and The Skin Thieves

  5. Kathy Finfrock

    “The story has a little bit of everything. Science, fantasy, addresses issues about being transgender, early loss of parents, a bit of violence, and enough action to keep you turning the pages. One thing I liked about this story is that the “chosen one” was not the only teenager in the universe who can save the planet. I also like that, days after having finished reading the story, Sarah has stayed in my heart.”

    Kathy Finfrock, Best Book Club Now

  6. Wanda Firman-Cooper

    “If you want to read a book that will have you so engaged that you do not want to walk away, this would be it! Jay Hartlove has a gift that cannot be ignored.”

    Wanda Firman-Cooper, Write Your Own Story Reviews

  7. Jason Malcolm Stewart

    “In his usual hot-rails-to-perdition style, Hartlove makes this novel jump and spark in a way not many thriller authors are even attempting, much less executing with this level of flair.”

    Jason Malcolm Stewart, author of The Eyes of the Stars
