    An exciting look into the bureaucracies of the government and the possibility of human annihilation. This book does a great job of creating characters from different walks of life who are brought together to save the world. Along the way, the struggle between science and creation is discussed time and again.

    Resurrect is a thrill ride from start to finish. I don’t know how I am going to wait until the next book in the series comes out! I loved the combination of science and technology along with faith and beliefs. I am really interested to see how the rest of the series will play out. I had a hard time putting this book down and found myself putting off other activities so I could find out how it would end. The research that had to have gone into this book is staggering since it was so detailed. One of my favorite parts is one one of the characters (I don’t want to give any spoilers) describes the sunset on the horizon from a jet plane. I felt as if I could see it myself.
    I became deeply invested in the characters and how they were thinking.

    I would recommend to this exhilarating novel to anyone who enjoys military, fighter planes, adventures, and action. Men especially would benefit from from reading this action filled novel and they would be sucked into the action from the very first page. Josh Logan is a likeable gentleman that captures every woman’s fantasy. And every man would want to be him! So women would also enjoy reading this new series. I would also recommend this to teenagers, who are into science fiction and they like the heroes who are trying to save the world. David E. Stevens is a brilliant writer who knows how to demonstrate and explain the story in vast details. I can’t wait to see how the other two novels in the series turn out! If you’re looking for a new series to dive into, then this book is for you!

    One of the greatest adventure stories I have ever read, and it is just the first of a trilogy. I can hardly wait until I get my hands of the second and third books. This book had me from page one. Once you begin this book, be prepared to get hooked (seriously I finished book in a couple of readings!). I urge all that enjoy great adventure novels to read this book and you will see what I mean. Course you will have to wait for books 2 and 3 to finish the tale, as this is the first book of the triology! Good reading to all!

    Stephens writes an action-packed thriller, and that’s exactly why I liked it. This isn’t your average Cliffhanger, though, and Josh Logan isn’t Stallone. With a totally new body and a mysterious voice that only he can hear to guide him through this mission, there’s definitely an element of the Twilight Zone in this story. As it progresses, however, the story takes on a more prophetic and less out there tone.

    I highly enjoyed this book. I liked the secrecy behind who helped Logan out, the real science scattered throughout the book, and, above all, the action scenes; because I’ve always enjoyed books and movies more if they have a lot of action. I would give this book four and a half stars out of five.(Written by my 16 year-old son)

I loved the vivid details of the settings throughout the book. David Stevens has a way of writing that it feels as though he has written you into the story along with the rest of his characters. And speaking of details, you can very well tell that the author’s research for this book was intense and detailed.

  • If you’re at all interested in the navy or fighter jets, if you enjoy watching movies about the apocalypse or the good guy having to save the world despite impossible odds – you’ll love this book. I’m not into fighter jets but I love a good “Mission Impossible” storyline, and this book hit all the right buttons.

    Though some of the jargon was a little hard to follow for an unmilitary, unscience girl like me – I loved the storyline, absolutely enjoyed the characters and was reading as fast as I could to find out what happened. From the first page to the last, I was hooked.

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.

    When this title arrived in our house, my teenaged son saw the book and took off with it to enjoy it before I had a chance to crack open the pages and enjoy the ‘new book’ experience. The next morning he brought it back, said he’d read the entire book the day (and night) before and wanted to know when the next book in the series would be released. So, I took that as anyone with a love of good science fiction and adventure stories (genres that son #1 really likes) will enjoy this title. It isn’t that often that he also asks when the author will have another book out.

    I was immediately drawn into this story and it was more than I expected! I initially thought it would be a story just about war and being in the Navy, but it deals with relationships, and everyday life as well. Josh is a great main character, but I think Elizabeth has to be my favorite character throughout the story. The interactions between the characters and the choices they are faced with kept me turning the pages and eagerly waiting to see what would happen next.

    What an exciting book with a fascinating premise. In fact, a teenager asked me today what I was reading, and just telling him the summary really made even him raise his eyebrows. If you like science, science fiction, and technology, this for you. The author even throws a romance in for good measure, and there are still questions as the story concludes. After all, this is a trilogy. The author has to leave something for you to bring you back!

    The book is so full of suspense that I was actually tense as I read it. I really don’t like scary stories that could possibly happen. This was one of them, but I couldn’t help but love it. One thing I want to mention is that I wouldn’t have expected to like this book simply based on the cover. I know, I know, don’t judge a book by its cover but I can’t help it. This book will definitely appeal to the conspiracy-theory guys on your Christmas list, but I think the ladies will equally love it.

    The cover of this book really got me excited. My stepdad was a part of the Vietnam war and I had a feeling he knew what the plane was. He told me it was an “E-18” and why it was used. The clouds are vivid and capturing… I knew I would like this book without opening the pages. Sometimes you just know, ya know? Turns out I was right! I sat down and read this in one sitting. Stevens’ writing can’t be forgotten. There is vivid detail in every page. He paints the picture of every scene like I was there as well. The main character – Josh – is a great guy who wants to do his best for everyone. He is brave and the characteristic hero.
