Wow, I don't have enough words to express my feelings. This is by far the best book I've ever read. I learned so much from this outstanding book. The characters of Matthew Mills and John Doe are very intriguing and the message of love throughout the book completely transformed my life. Honestly, my love with my family, my Jesus and with myself has taken a new turn after reading this book. The story melted my heart... the struggles, the faith, the emotions, the inspiration... this book is a unique blend of amazing feelings that took me into another world - a world full of love, happiness, hope and care. I smiled, I cried, I laughed... I enjoyed reading each and every page of this wonderful book. I recommend this great book to everyone out there. Thank you so much Nate; it's a great gift!
I can't thank you enough for encouraging me.

Nate Allen’s ‘Death is not the End, Daddy’ is an incredible work of art. To be honest, I was a little unsure how I would respond to this book at first, but as I began to read each page I found that I couldn’t put it down. This book embraced my imagination and captured my heart. The level of complexity is absolutely intriguing and can be quite addicting at times to follow but well worth the read. ‘Death is Not the End, Daddy’ draws you in with the struggle of redemption, the mystery of forgiveness and the incredible wonder that the gift of love can bring to light.

There are many different aspects of this book that the reader can, and will, connect with. Some will be encouraged by the message of love that this book shares both in the lives of Matthew Mills and John Doe, who are the two main characters. Others will connect with the depth Mr. Allen brings to the table as he defines each character and how they intertwine with each other throughout the book. Still others will connect with the message of faith in the midst of struggle and how each character changes by the end. Personally, I connected with the resolve of Matthew Mills and the struggle he faced with building a relationship with both his wife and his daughter. I was reminded of how important it is to ensure we as husbands and fathers work to build those relationships with our loved ones, just as Jesus longs to build that relationship with all of us.

This book is a testament of how the love of Christ can change the heart of any man or woman. In the same respect though, it doesn’t throw it in the reader's face. It is a rare gem indeed and I was truly blessed by the outcome of this wonderful little fiction novel. I very rarely recommend any books but this one is one that I am honored to review and recommend to anyone who will listen.

“Death is Not the End, Daddy” is a book that’s equal parts suspense and redemption—it’s at times heartbreaking, as its characters struggle with faith, hope, and despair.

The book alternates perspectives between “John Doe” and a man named Matt—John was abused as a child by his father, and his only companion and comfort was Teddy, a stuffed bear. But Teddy has a strange and dark power over John, and compels him not only to hurt himself, but others, especially children. Matt is a loving father and husband; he and his wife are struggling with the aftermath of a miscarriage, which has shaken their faith in God. They will face the greatest test of all when John takes their daughter, Marcy…but abducting Marcy will also spark a deep change in John, as well….

This book should appeal to a wide range of readers—those who like suspense novels will enjoy the tension created by Marcy’s abduction and by Matt’s search for her, while those who enjoy books centered in faith will like how Matt and Janet seek Jesus and try to grow closer to him (though at times it’s a hard struggle for both of them, in their own separate ways). There is some thematic subject matter here that’s a little hard to read from an emotional standpoint, but it’s not gratuitous and is important to the plot. I also liked how neither Matt nor John is a black-and-white character—though John has done despicable things, he has a backstory that makes him complex and even sympathetic in how he is controlled by evil and yearns for the light. Matt, on the other hand, is a man who has a good heart but struggles to remain positive and focused on that goodness.

I’d recommend this novel to readers who like faith-based fiction about struggle and redemption, and to readers who like suspense novels.

Review by: CloverHogan on May 25, 2015 :
Death is not the End, Daddy, is a revolutionary piece of fiction that expands far beyond the Christian market. An intricately layered and adventure-packed novel, Nate Allen’s beautifully crafted writing will have you gripping the edge of your seat from page one, as you are sucked into the minds of artfully crafted characters.

Despite being a devout reader, it’s unusual for me to invest in a non-commercial or ‘undiscovered’ book. However, after Allen’s work was recommended by three different friends, I decided to take the plunge. I couldn’t be happier with my choice. The novel was an absolute pleasure to read, and I was able to experience a personal and tender exploration of religious conceptuality.

5 Stars—an Absolute Recommend!

So this book kind of took me by surprise. It causes you to feel so many different things. I'll be honest I'm not an avid reader and I usually have trouble actually getting into most books. This was not one of them. I couldn't stop reading. It has everything your looking for. Suspense, redemption, love. Death is not the end, daddy really has the potential to help people. To understand how you'll have to read it. I promise you won't regret it.
