Review: The Fetch, Whitcomb


When a person dies, their souls are escorted into heaven by what is known as a “Fetch”. Calder is one of these escorts, but when he sees a human he wants as his Squire, things start going wrong. First of all, the woman is married with children, second, Calder is now trapped in the body of a man, and third, he has broken his vows and caused a good deal of trouble in heaven, earth, and the world between.

The Fetch is an imaginative story full of impossible detail and excitement. It is a page-turner that will leave you hungry for more. I read it straight-through and I am positive other readers will find the story just as enthralling. The characters and story-line were well developed and draw you into the story right away. Whitcomb doesn’t even try to push beliefs onto any readers, but creates exciting new fictional ideas that make this book a good fantasy read. I strongly recommend this book to everyone: it is clean, imaginative, and all together an excellent book.
