Davis Summerfield thought he was retired and living the good life, that was before he had to accept an offer he wasn’t at liberty to refuse. Interplay, a secret government agency wants him to head up their space exploration/research department. Not cooperating was not in his best interest. Not knowing what his position as head of the department entails, he is surprised when he finds out it includes an exploration mission to outer space. During the mission, he has his first encounter with the strange ships. Just before their craft, Algenon I, is pulled into the black hole, the unknown ship comes in between them and stops them from being sucked in. Why did they help? Who are they?
Davis soon learns there is an infiltrator inside Interplay, which places him in an uncomfortable position. He must find out who it is and report them to his superior, but can he trust them? With contacts from his past life, he begins an investigation of his own which only puts him in danger. What is Interplay’s role? How far will they go to keep their secrets?
Along with his staff, he discovers the missing link in the human DNA. Only, he can’t tell anyone. Who would believe him anyway? What he found would change how the inhabitants of Earth would view themselves, and they probably wouldn’t be able to handle it anyway.
The answer to the lifelong mystery only leads Davis to find out other shocking truths that Interplay are hiding…conspiracy, kidnapping, murder. Davis joins the underground rebels to stop Interplay and help keep the group safe inside their protected facility. Outside, a battle ensues over planet Earth. Thousands have already died. Is Earth’s total annihilation going to be the outcome?
Davis discovers his true destiny from a Zarion spiritual leader who comes to him, and he must now face the biggest challenge of his life. He must help save mankind. The clock is ticking, and the countdown has begun. Will he be able to convince them to trust him in time or is their survival doomed?
A unique blend of science fiction and religion
The Zarion: Saving Mankind had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.
This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. There are attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a fascinating journey!
It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!
I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from J.E. Grace in the future. I would definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me.
