Arden’s Bookclub Review
If you’ve been following along with me for a while, you know my typical reads involve
So, when Gary McPherson’s book was presented to me, I entered my reading it with a bit of trepidation. I wanted to do a review of it justice.
Y’all, I had a ball reading this book. Joshua got a little deeper into his thoughts at times than I preferred, but, to be fair, his world was rocked majorly by the actions of other characters in the book. I really enjoyed Harold and his development process throughout the journey of this book.

What I liked about his book:
The story was very promising, it was a good idea and unique. The characters were well written and interesting. You want to develop a bond with Harold and Joshua. The book did keep my attention to keep turning pages, I wanted to see what was going to happen next in the story.

Joshua and the Shadow of Death: The Berserker Series, Book 1 is a psychological thriller novel written by Gary McPherson. Dr. Joshua Zeev had given up his professional practice, friends
Gary McPherson’s conspiracy thriller novel, Joshua and the Shadow of Death: The Berserker Series, Book 1, was of particular interest to me for its focus on Berserker Syndrome and the efforts jointly made by Harold and his psychiatrist to help him learn to keep it under control. McPherson’s plot is ingenious, and his depiction of the relationship between Harold and Joshua is masterful. I especially enjoyed seeing how Joshua also comes of age, as it were, throughout the book and begins to develop a social persona that is separate from his lifelong commitment to his work. Both he and Harold are marvelous characters, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of them in the next book in the series. Joshua and the Shadow of Death: The Berserker Series, Book 1 is most highly recommended.
