Dark Eyes, Deep Eyes

I received a copy of Dark Eyes, Deep Eyes by T. Neal Tarver from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
  Life, death, faith and hope paint paths to Heaven and Hell as two men find their way in modern-day San Antonio. College grad Nick doesn’t trust God. He wears a simple message across his heart: “God, you’re not welcome here.” Former pastor Wayne has a heart held hostage by his past failures and a feeling that he isn’t God’s man. When death’s specter burns both men’s names into its appointment book, each embarks on an amazing journey—one doused in dread, the other dripping with delight.
  This is a great book!  I've read a couple books about people going to Heaven, but never a book about someone going to Hell.  This book describes 2 men's journey after death - one to Heaven, the other to Hell.  The chapters rotate back and forth from each man's journey.  Wayne experiences the highs of Heaven while Nick experiences the depths of Hell.  Each chapter is so real it's like you're traveling with each of the men.  The one thing that I didn't see coming is how the Devil is described - "The Beautiful One".  When Nick finally sees the Devil it all makes sense.  I love how Nick finally sees that it's not what's on the outside that counts.
