Review by: L.M. Steel on May 29, 2013 :
Christian Sci fi?? I was unsure of what to expect, but what a thrilling story. Action packed from the very beginning with enough mystery and suspense to keep you hooked and turning the pages.

A town gripped in conspiracy and tyranny and now teenagers starting to understand they have superpowers accelerated by the towns governing company.



The names of course have biblical and mythological meanings: Lazarus , the hero, Pandora, unleashing all the terrible things she can find in people, Titan, the company acting over the town as a God like figure.

With all the action and sci-fi of comic book style superhero’s, the writer expertly and gently eases in the moral questions of faith and evolution and how peoples beliefs in the differing ideals motivate their belief in their place in society.

The back story which is essential is timely fed to us when we need to know it and how it affects the story at this point. It gives drive and essence to the actions and understandings our young heroes are facing in this tale of good versus evil, and deciding which side is actually which.

The character development was very well done. The main character incites a sympathy and identification in the reader, while keeping a dark and lonely hero, comparable to many comic book style heroes.



I highly recommend this book to any sci-fi and comic fan
