When a brother and sister's home explodes, they go on the run to escape death from the hands of a psychopathic businessman in the thrilling supernatural novel, Unnatural Descendant by Kate Porter. When he was five, Dylan watched his guardian die from a gunshot wound while trying to protect him from bad men. Even though there was someone dangerous chasing the small boy, Travis Brody and Janey Carmichael adopted Dylan. During the next sixteen years, they changed their names and taught Dylan and his younger sister Tina how to protect themselves. One night, when Dylan came home from college for Thanksgiving, he and fifteen-year-old Tina were on their way to Walmart when their home exploded, killing their parents. Immediately their Uncle Jack called them and told them to run. Relying on what their parents and Uncle Jack had taught them over the years, Dylan and Tina left town. However, when they picked up the papers their father left them in a safety deposit box, they discovered Dylan's history is more mysterious and extraordinary than they knew. Shocked by what he learns, Dylan realizes they are in more danger than he believed. Is he strong enough to protect Tina from those who wish to terminate them? Or will they be the final victims in a cover-up?

Unnatural Descendant by Kate Porter is a suspenseful and electrifying thriller centered around the immoral acts of power-hungry men and an ancient religious artifact. Skillfully written, it is an exciting, unputdownable book that includes engaging protagonists, psychopathic villains, and supernatural essence. The blending of religious artifacts, scientific technology, and supernatural elements creates a thrilling novel worthy of the best-selling authors Michael Crichton, Dan Brown, and James Rollins. From the very beginning, a sense of apprehension, urgency, and intensity permeates the story as Dylan uncovers the truth about his parentage and struggles to discern who he can trust. It is a breathtaking novel, and I recommend it to those who love to read action-packed thrillers.
