    1 thought on “H2O the Novel”

    1. After reading only only a couple of sentences of H2O I thought I would dislike it. The florid language just turned my stomach, but I pressed on and was rewarded with a story which grew more fascinating as I progressed and then went to hell in a handbasket. A full review can be found on my blog .As I progressed it became obvious this was Christian fiction and there was no mystery at allover what the protagonist was experiencing, but it as interested to note that it takes two guys to write a novel [...]

    2. This was a totally unexpected experience for me. I´ve never read a religious/spiritual based book before because I´m not much of a church person, but, this book has made me rethink my aproach to that spirituality, specially with Jesus. I can´t really describe what I´m feeling, but it´s wonderful.Thanks so much Austin Boyd and Brannon Hollingsworth, for introducing me to another kind of reading.(Read the book. It´s amazing.)

    3. I figured out what "speculative fiction" means.ing hard to review!! So, this 5 star rating is going to come with a lot of caveats and might still end up meandering into confusion. If so, be assured if you decide to read the book, it will all make sense - probably.First off, the book is undoubtably Christian, the message is strong even if the story seems somewhat harsh. The first few pages may make one wonder why they even picked the book up. It starts as uncomfortable reading. As the plot-line s [...]

    4. H20 is a deeply spiritual book without being "preachy." I enjoyed the imagery and being completely immersed in the mind of the lead character. There were parts of the book that hurt my heart and others that made me laugh. Having been raised in an extremely religious environment I can understand the feelings that Kate had about her past. Often coming from such a background if you ever leave you will find it hard and maybe even impossible to go back to even an image of that life. I find that I am [...]

    5. Rating: 4 1/2 stars!What would you do if you suddenly started having visions when you got wet? Visions so powerful you lost touch with the world for that amount of time. Would you avoid water at all costs - or learn to live with it?That is exactly what happened to Kate Pepper. She used to love getting wet, but when she suddenly starts having visions whenever she comes in contact with water, she finds herself fearing water and trying to avoid it at all costs. But how can you live without water? W [...]

    6. When I got a request to be friends with Hollingsworth, and entered his contest to receive a free book, I was not sure whether to be excited or not when I won. I had never heard of either of the authors before. His taste in books is similar to mine, and the cover looked intriguing, so I was hopeful. Finding out that Hollingsworth also designed games excited me because I was certain that a game designer would lead me on an adventure worth reading. After reading Boyd's author page, I understood tha [...]

    7. After reading this work, the first thought I have is: Mature. Not pornographic maturity. This book has the character, depth, solidity of a classic. The linguistic poise, beautiful depiction, and haunting plot masterfully weave two author's into one tale. Having read the first run of this book, I have come to delight in its refinement. It has matured, becoming a gem worthy of any reader, from nearly any age. I highly recommend it to those looking to be thrilled, chilled, surprised, and stunned by [...]

    8. I received a copy of H2O the Novel by Austin Boyd and Brannon Hollingsworth to read and review. I do not know where to begin, this book was incredible, I finished it a week ago and I am still thinking about it. I do not think I can do it justice in a review.First off, all the descriptions and blurbs I find for this book call it a “contemporary crossover women’s novel” guys do not let that keep you from reading it. Yes, the main character is a women dealing with a lot of issues women deal w [...]

    9. My first thought after finishing this book was WOW!! From the very first page right through to the end it kept me totally captivated & filled me with so many varying emotions. Anger at the way Kate is treated by Xavier, warmth at the way Andrea looks after her & happiness after she meets John. Although this book is a spiritual one it in no way tries to force religion onto you. I have no religious beliefs but i still really enjoyed it & i would highly recommend H20 to anyone with a pa [...]

    10. I don't really know if this contains spoilers, but I am going to hide it just in case.I feel like I should put a disclaimer on my review, but I am not really sure what it should be. The way I read this book was VERY much colored by my own experiences and my own beliefs, which I feel I should tell you have led me down a path that is mostly separate from religion. I will also tell you, that while I am not religious I do feel I have a fairly decent grasp on Christianity. I have read, and do know th [...]

    11. Wow! H2O is a powerful novel. It is the first of a series called The Eternal Elements by Austin Boyd and Brandon Hollingsworth. Kate, a high powered executive, begins to have visions whenever water touches her. Her boyfriend, Xavier, who is also her boss, begins to question if she is loyal to him. It seems as though she has these visions whenever there is a big event involving work. Kate is estranged from her parents and has only one friend. There is no one she can turn to and Xavier does not ca [...]

    12. I was really impressed with this book. I wasn't sure what to expect since I was not familiar with it prior to the author contacting me asking if I wanted to read and review it. First off look at that cover! SERIOUSLY!! It has to be one of the best covers I have seen in a long time. Although "packaging" doesn't change the inside product -- it definitely makes an impact -- and the cover of H20 made me WANT to read the book. My rating is probably around 3.5-3.75 stars. There were a few things that [...]

    13. MY REVIEWFirst of all I love the cover, it makes you want to know more about the book. So just as a great cover should do, this one draws you in.I don't really know why as it doesn't suggest so in the blurb, but I had thought this book would have some sort of paranormal elements to it didn't. For anyone that has read my review policy you will know I actually state I do not review religious books, however I asked one of the authors direct if I could review this book. I have to say its not the eas [...]

    14. H2O is an allegorical work of Christian fiction that I read in two sittings because it was so hard to put down! Kate, a successful business woman and sushi chef of growing renown, thinks she has everything she wants from life. Then she begins blacking out and having visions every time her skin comes into water, and her life begins to fall apart. After several serious accidents and seeking medical help to no avail, being rejected by her boyfriend/boss, Kate sinks into a serious depression, trappe [...]

    15. Kate Pepper has a high-stress job, a creepy megalomaniac boyfriend named Xavier, an addiction to dark roast coffee, and even more disturbing- disturbing and unpredictable visions that come out of nowhere, taking away not only her peace of mind, but in several instances, also hurting her greatly, almost to the point of near death. After Xavier and co-workers begin doubting her and making her question her own sanity, she realizes that all of these visions come to her when she's wet or in contact w [...]

    16. This was an odd story, but it was also edgy and different, which I liked. The imagery of the ultimate healing and the need to be cleansed from sin was pretty vivid. I loved how the heroine, Kate, couldn't get any more lost, and how she had to become broken in order to finally see the sad truth of her existence. The authors showed her misery at the top of her game as well as the misery she experienced during her all-time low. John was a great friend to her and probably the best example of Jesus i [...]

    17. H2O is riveting, edgy, and unabashedly raw. I was captivated from the start as Kate Pepper, a woman bent on control, fights to keep her stilettos firmly planted against the strengthening undertow of a buried secret. The story’s character development is sensational (you’ll love to hate Xavier, her heartless heartthrob boyfriend), and the progression of the water theme throughout the book is thoroughly gripping. I was truly impressed at how the authors (friends and brilliant novelists Austin B [...]

    18. I won this book from one of its authors, Brannon Hollingsworth. I was VERY impressed with this book. I immediately sympathized with it's main character, Kate Pepper and her struggles in the book. I detested Xavier,what a jerk! I was immediately taken in with her internet friend and how the story developed between the two of them. I am not the most religious person on the planet, and this book touches lightly on the subject but in a meaningful and though provoking way! I REALLY loved this book! I [...]

    19. I feel very fortunate to have won this books on the site. I had no idea what type of book H2O the Novel was when I began reading it. I was blown away by it! The Christian themed book is full of powerful images, deep and meaningful visions, and insights that can be both inspiring and somewhat troubling. Water and visionswho knew that the combination would make a fantastic read? I have recommended this book to my friends and I will continue to suggest it.

    20. This bookwhat can I say made me feel frustrated,burdened and absolutely filthy! Though towards the end I felt refreshed and new! I was captured by the ending of the book, so it's definitively a must read till the end type of sorts! Even though I didn't capture the idea in the beginning that this was a spiritual book by the end I understood and loved it! I hope more people read H2O!

    21. This is a wonderful book that you will be compelled to read from start to end without wanting to stop. It is unlike any inspirational or spiritual book I have read. The idea of water playing such an important role in the book was ingenious. It is a sensational debut for Brannon Hollingsworth and I look for more great reads to come from Mr Hollingsworth.

    22. This book is very different from my usual fare but I was approached by one of the authors to do a review. Kate Pepper is a successful business woman, working for a company that provides in-seat video screens with underlying apps for airlines. She is also carrying on an affair with her boss. The book opens with Kate preparing a Sushi dinner for people her boss has invited. As she puts her hands under water, she is hit with the first of many visions and blacks out. Her boss/lover is not very conce [...]

    23. I know I'm in the minority here, but this book was not what I expected. Given the title and what little I knew about the book, I thought the book was going to be about the visions, kind of like a minor paranormal-fantasy take but with a more realistic approach. I found that the book wasn't like that, but rather used these visions as a basis to preach christianity. Going in I was not aware that this was a Christian based book. If I had known that I probably would not have read it. I don't like bo [...]

    24. A few months ago author Austin Boyd visited my blog and encouraged me to read his latest release, promising that I wouldn't "go away thirsty" from it. Wow, was he right! "H2O" is a beautiful story full of descriptive imagery and eternal truths that came to life all over again as I turned the pages. Full of depth and honesty, you could see the care and craftsmanship that the authors poured into the story over a three-year writing period. This is a master of a novel!Kate Pepper is the Ice Queen. H [...]

    25. First, a big thank you to Brannon Hollingsworth who contacted me on and offered me a copy of this book in exchange for a review! He also personalized a message and autographed the book which I greatly appreciated!! :)I am always intrigued by a good "thriller" type plot from the Christian fiction genre. This is a market that is still somewhat sparse, so I'm always on the lookout. This book definitely fit the bill! Kate is a character that many, many women can relate to - Christian or not. In fac [...]

    26. Where to begin?? First of all, I'd like to thank Brannon Hollingsworth for giving me the opportunity to read this wonderful book. Second of all, H2O was so wonderful that I don't even have words to express how much I liked it. I'll give it a shot thoughARACTERS:Kate Pepper-A very likable, relatable heroine who seems to be getting deeper and deeper into trouble. She begins to have visions whenever water hits her. It seems like someone is trying to reach her, but who?? I found myself cheering for [...]

    27. I am super blessed reading the novel, and I can still feel the high (joy) from finishing the book- not because I finished it, but because of the story.H2O the Novel is highly gripping, metaphorical and brilliantly written. The idea behind touching water spark visions is truly unnatural but very unique and interesting. The way the words were woven and used phrase by phrase was very smart. It's deep, no doubt in that. Kate Peppers has it all- the brain, the beauty, the boyfriend, and the work, and [...]

    28. Where do I start? The best place is to begin with a thank you to Brannon for a copy of his book. I was immediately attracted to the title (my namesake) and the cover. The first kudos goes to the book designer. What a captivating cover for a novel. I love the imagery it brings to the experiencecely done.I feel somewhat obligated to gush all over this book b/c of the free copy I received. I will eliminate that pressure with an honest review. I always steer clear of all Christian Fiction, mainly du [...]

    29. My initial feeling about H2O was uncertainty - it is narrated by Kate Pepper, a 102-pound size 2 aerospace marketing executive and sushi chef who slices off part of her palm while catering a work-related dinner party hosted by her gorgeous but controlling boyfriend, Xavier. I'm not big on blood and I don't like controlling men in fiction or in real life, so this was not a promising start. But underneath the doubtful beginning there is the start of a puzzle, a mystery, about Kate's reactions to t [...]

    30. Thank you to Brannon Hollingsworth for the copy. Received for a honest review with no compensation provided. Kate is workaholic, driven to succeed and also dating her boss Xavier. While cleaning some fish for her special roll sushi she faints and ends up having visions. The visions don't stop since it happens to be triggered by water. She ends up missing important projects and presentations at work because her mind is occupied by her avoidance of water and her sheet determination for some answe [...]
