Author Biography

Rob was perfectly happy as an IT executive until the universe rudely interrupted a meditation by strongly encouraging him to begin writing thrillers around life’s biggest questions: Where do we come from? What is consciousness? When do you sacrifice one to save another? Big questions need big stories it said. The universe didn’t provide a lot of direction. Challenge accepted.

In this plane of existence, Rob lives in Calgary, AB Canada with his wife and family.

The Last Miracle is a work of fiction in the suspense, intrigue, and supernatural thriller sub-genres, and was penned by author Robert W. Adams. This intriguing and tense novel follows protagonist Thea, who has always been plagued by persecution because she feels she has a talent for sensing things that others do not and being able to heal those around her. So when Thea sees a terrifying vision of the future brought about by the dark voice in her head, she needs to make a choice. What results is a novel about searching one’s soul deeply, standing up to darkness, and what all that means for the fate of the world around you.

Author Robert W. Adams has crafted a masterful work of suspense and psychological drama which will also tick the boxes for paranormal thriller fans: a rare and intriguing combination. One of the things which I really admired about this work was the way it kept a terrifying sense of realism despite some of the paranormal, supernatural, and questioning elements of the plot, and I felt this was largely achieved by such commitment to realistic thought, speech, and action in the characters. Thea is an empathetic soul whom we can root for, but more than this she is a complex figure with relatable vulnerabilities, and her strength really leaps off the page as she grows with the story. Overall, I would highly recommend The Last Miracle for anyone wanting to try an accomplished and complex work of thriller fiction with much to think over long after the cover is closed.

The Last Miracle by Robert W. Adams is the story of a young girl called Thea Johnson and her family. Thea is just 8 years old when she loses her mother to an illness. She isn’t surprised though because the voice in her head had already prepared her for death. However, her mother’s death proves to be a catalyst. Soon after her mother’s death, Thea begins to experience things that no one around her can. Even her brother Alex and her father Wayne cannot fully understand what she experiences. But the voice inside her is real and it has never led her astray. Soon, she will realize that everything happens for a reason, and sometimes it is not best for you, but it is for everyone else. When decisions have to be made, will Thea choose what is best for her or best for the rest of the world?

I love how Robert W. Adams paces his narrative. The pace seems to follow Thea's. It grows and picks up as Thea’s character develops. The narrative becomes fast as Thea gains more confidence and becomes more in sync with her ability. The Last Miracle is a little confusing in the beginning, but just seamlessly grows into this amazing story that made me stay glued until the end. Thea is surprisingly (yet satisfyingly) mature for her age. She understands she is different, and yet she never tries to hide her difference from the world. She faces the consequences of that like a champion. Her relationships with the people around her are innocent. From Rusty to her brother Alex, this little girl holds each relationship dear and basks in the effect. She just wants people who she loves to be happy and healthy. She is the little miracle of this story. The twists and turns the author introduces are satisfying and so cool. The climax shocked me. I did not see it coming and, boy, was it exhilarating. An all-rounder that packs a punch! This story is phenomenal!

The Last Miracle by Robert W. Adams will appeal to fans of paranormal and thrillers. When the story opens, eight-year-old Thea Johnson loses her mother, a painful experience for her. But something extraordinary is happening to her at the same time: there is a voice that speaks in her head. She hears and feels things that other people don’t — and that explains why she likes touching walls. The voice tells her that no one is going to believe her — her mom may believe her if she were still alive. But what this voice will reveal to her is even more troubling than any experience of tragedy, pain, and loss she has suffered. She sees a future world disintegrating because of mankind’s mindless actions. But there is a way out and it comes at great sacrifice. Will she accept it or watch the world spiral into chaos?

Robert W. Adams’ The Last Miracle is very entertaining and inspirational. It features a compelling young female protagonist with a unique gift. I loved how the author creates internal conflict in the character. It is not easy to have a gift that no one believes exists. And I can sense the pain and frustration in Thea. While she has to deal with school, relate to her ten-year-old brother and classmates that can be difficult at times, there is an inner world she also explores, a world that will soon collide with her physical reality. The writing is beautiful and the descriptions are strong. The dialogues in The Last Miracle as exciting and they enhance both the plot and character. This is a fast-paced, delightful story that also inspires readers to think about the world around them.
