About the Book

Joe Stanton is in agony. Out of his mind over the death of his young daughter. Or so it seems. Unable to contain his grief, Joe loses control in public, screaming his daughter’s name and causing a huge scene at a hotel on San Juan Island in Washington State. Thing is, Joe Stanton doesn’t have a daughter. Never did. And when the authorities arrive they blame the 28-year-old’s outburst on drugs. What they don’t yet know is that others up and down the Pacific coast—from the Bering Seato the Puget Sound—are suffering identical, always fatal mental breakdowns. With the help of his girlfriend—the woman he loves and dreams of marrying—Joe struggles to unravel the meaning of the hallucination destroying his mind. As the couple begins to perceive its significance—and Joe’s role in a looming global calamity—they must also outwit a billionaire weapons contractor bent on exploiting Joe’s newfound understanding of the cosmos, and outlast the time bomb ticking in Joe’s brain.

When I started this book, I thought it would be what I refer to as a “boy book,” meaning that it is an actioney type book that goes into hyper-scientific or technical detail (think Tom Clancy) but tending to put less emphasis on depth of character development.  I tend to not enjoy these books quite as much as others, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case with this book.  Bennett moves the story along, with just the right amount of technical detail, action, and good character development.  I really liked Joe’s girlfriend, and the overall themes of the book (connection between humans and the natural world, the fate of our world, etc) were enjoyable.  The book moves quickly and there is no “down time.”  It is very well-written, and I highly recommend it to action and sci-fi fans.

Subliminal Messiah + Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card {Book Review & Giveaway}

* I was provided with a free ecopy of The Subliminal Messiah in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Whew – this book is INTENSE.  It was dark.  It was sooo honest.  So in that respect, it wasn’t necessarily an easy book to read.  This is definitely a thinking book – I don’t really even know what genre I would put it in.  I think my favorite part about this book was the constant wrestling between destiny, and whether I would want to know my own.  This book is definitely gritty – for me it was not a quick read- I definitely digested in small bites!

About the book: “I have nothing to look forward to. Eighteen years old and every vision I’ve ever had, every memory of the future; they’ve nearly all become real memories now. What you would call the past.” Ezekiel, eighteen and clairvoyant, knows the end is coming. He’s been expecting it for years. But with mere weeks to go, he may have finally met his savior. Her name is Mona, and she filled his visions long before she walked into his life. The question is — why?
