Book 1 in the Resurrect Trilogy.

This book was very interesting in many ways, however, there were also aspects of it I did not appreciate or even like. 

It starts out with a Navy pilot, Josh, who choses to wait until the last possible moment to crash his disabled plane rather than allow his plane to hit a neighborhood. This makes you like this man right away. The next thing we find is that he's in a hospital and really not fully aware of what has been happening to him. When he finally does regain his conciousness, he doesn't look the same even though he feels like he's the same in his heart. He has been "re-built" by someone he refers to as Jesse. 

The entire book is like this. Things that couldn't possibly think of as happening in science, happen, and this is a definite apocalyptic thriller of giant preporations that takes the reader on one up and down ride after another. The story is full of military adventures and thrilling adventures, however, the characters are believable. 

There is also a back story between Josh and Elizabeth and their budding love for one another. Elizabeth's faith really shines through throughout the story in a very believable way and it's great to see how she affects others around her in a positive way.  

There is a Christian/Spiritual undertone to this story, however, there are sexual innuendoes and language that keep me from giving it 5 stars. I chose to read Christian fiction so that I don't have the innuendoes and language I would have in secular books.
The story is really excellent and the book is a definite page turner. If you like science fiction with huge doses of military background, you'll love this book. It's a thrilling story and the book leaves you wanting more.
