Impact by David E. Stevens
Author: David E. Stevens
Publisher: Lion Hudson
This is truly a combination of a unique storyteller with an equally one of a kind story! The novel has many components of various fields of study plus multiple genres, and it just kept getting better the further I progressed. What piqued my interest was the picture of an E-18 on the cover flying in mid-air with a comet apparently falling in the background. My father was in the Air Force and wanted to become a pilot; unfortunately, his hearing wasn’t quite where it needed to be. As a youngster on the back porch in the summers, my Dad would identify planes to me without even looking up most of the time based on what he heard.
When you add the title, Resurrect, with the cover photo, one has to wonder about this fiction’s contents. The further I read, the more surprised I was. One minute I would think I had an inkling of where the novel was heading, only to turn the page and see that the author threw in a curve that blew my theory out of the water! Commander David Stevens himself has Naval Flight and Operational experience, yet the amount of research done to bring a down-to-earth novel is breathtaking.
The story spans many different countries, jobs, relationships, governments, and private sector involvement, etc... It is hard to put into concise verbiage the entire explosive story that includes, but is not limited to, action, adventure, and mystery. Another characteristic is the mystery of trying to understand just where the lead male character is getting his information. Josh is preparing to take off on his last flight, having just been married for a year, when his life is abruptly changed. Josh isn’t sure there is a God and when he awakes he speaks with someone he names Jesse, but who is it really? Not only that, his looks and body are nowhere near what they were before his life changed. He can’t remember anything about himself, at first. Then, he begins to remember. What does he remember as time moves toward what Jesse refers to as the final two years?
Prepare yourself for more than you could ever imagine. I was so immersed in the story, time just flew by. The multitude of themes, genres, scenes, and more was just astounding to read and see how the author intertwined them. It has such a flavor and mystery for readers as well as the many questions the lead male character asks. It has a profound impact on the mind as well as the heart of the reader! Make time for this novel, and watch for future novels that will be continuing the story started here.
My rating is 5+ stars.
