Gabriel Woods' The Golden Age Dawns is a high voltage page turner from start to finish. From Ireland and the UK, Amsterdam, Spain and the Sudan the story weaves a marvelous cocktail of impressive characters and their plight as they are recruited by the Protectors of the Light to assist in the battle for Earth. It is a journey of self discovery and personal commitment to a higher power and a call to arms to aid a greater cause then their own.
The age old tale of the forces of light battling the forces of darkness with humanity caught in the middle is brought to life in such a way that captivates the reader from the get go.
The authors characters are rich in scope both the good and the bad. Plot after plot and twist after twist brings the two forces together in a head on clash one to save and evolve humanity and the other to subjugate and control or ultimately destroy humanity.
The Golden Age Dawns is a hyperdimensional action thriller that magically assists the reader to experience the vibrational difference between good and evil. Gabriel Woods shows in graphic detail the remarkable difference of character that each of us has a choice to align with.
He show's the extraordinary difference between those who chose to live with love in their hearts and to perceive the world of darkness that exists for those who do not.
I can't wait for the sequel.

The Golden Age Dawns is book one of a trilogy exploring the societies across Europe that are crumbling under disease and destruction that have been spread to the continent by unseen and evil forces. Life on earth is not as people believe it to be. A fierce unseen cosmic battle is taking place between two great alien powers and the human race is caught in the middle.
Woods has told an interesting and compelling story. It’s fast paced with plenty of action that pulls the reader in to see what will happen next. The story contains multiple characters and each has been selected to fulfil their destined path to help in saving or destroying the human race. Developing multiple characters can be difficult and can prevent connection to the emotional and thought process of the individual however Woods has created wonderful and interesting back stories to each of the very different main characters. Additionally as this is only book one of three, this book provides the introduction to the characters which will see developed more as the story unfolds.
An aspect I loved about The Golden Age Dawns is the setting of various scenes around ancient sites of the world whether in Ireland, United Kingdom or Africa. This instils all sorts of imaginings of what these sites might have once been used for by powerful alien races.
Overall it is an interesting and enjoyable read and sets the pace for the following instalments to come.
