“the powers of the heavens shall be shaken”
The Rogue by Lee W. Brainard is the first book in the Planets Shaken series. This story is so good. I wish the second book were available to follow the story through. Not being a science nerd, it took me a while to get into the story, but once I did the book was very hard to put down. And then to have it end like it did, wow! It’s going to be a hard wait to see what happens.
Irina is a rookie scientist who discovers a very large comet that is on it’s way to Mars. When she reports it to her supervisor, he take the information and almost claims it as his. When the government finds out she has knowledge of the comet, they start investigating her. She knows she has to get this information to someone so she mails it to a former classmate, just prior to being taken into custody. Anyone who has knowledge of the comet and talks about it, gets taken to the FEMA area, they lose all their belongings and never see their families or friends again.
Ariele receives a mysterious package in the mail that contains information about a very large comet that could destroy the world. She starts researching and using the telescope at her job to get more information. When her research is finished, she reports her findings to her supervisor, who has to report her to the FBI. After being questioned by the FBI, she meets with a colleague and he tells her she has to run to save her life. Her colleague starts getting followed by the FBI, he also goes on the run.
I really enjoyed this book, it gives a different look at the end of the world than most of the books I have read in the past. Using Biblical prophecy, the author writes a fascinating story based on the Gospel of Luke 21:26. What stands out to me is how smart the characters are. As well as how far they will go to stand up for what they believe in. This story is full of action and suspense. I think anyone who enjoys a good thriller, will enjoy this story.
I received a copy of this book from the author through BookCrash. This is my honest review.
