Of Mud and Clay: Book One of Light into Exile, by G. Wayne Jeffreys, is a well written, fast paced, science fiction mystery. The characters are unique and vivid. The storyline, keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Some questions are answered and some are not, leaving the reader in anticipation of the next book in the series.
G. Wayne Jeffreys novel kept me riveted throughout the story. There are many theological questions, a little romance, and violence scattered throughout the novel as the story unfolds.
Personally, I loved it! Of Mud and Clay is a great read. I recommend it to all mystery, science fiction, and theology lovers.
