They call it the Radiance. No one knows where it comes from or what causes it—only that human intelligence is expanding at a startling rate.
When former Army Ranger Travis Walker is first asked to join the Radiant Project, a task force of scientists and military leaders, he declines. Yet when Travis’s brother, Cale, a wealthy and secretive industrialist, tells Travis the woman he always loved is in danger, he has no choice but to face whatever lies ahead.
Estranged brothers must race against time to find the source of the Radiance. Even more, they must find out how to stop it before it falls into the hands of those bent on worldwide destruction.
My Review:I received a copy of The Radiance for an honest review.
The Radiance follows two brothers Cale and Travis who join The Radiance Group in hopes of finding answers and saving the ones they care about. Both brothers are kick butt and they have many action packed scenes that really made this book work for me.
The Radiance is making the human race smarter and people are able to do things they never could before and nobody knows the cause.
The writing was interesting and easily readable although sometimes I felt like there could have been more dialogue and inner character monologue instead of description of things. Overall I didn’t really feel a connection to the writing.
The ending left on a bit of a cliffhanger note which was interesting. While I enjoyed the story I don’t think if there were to be a sequel that I would read it. I think my main problem with the story was my lack of connection to the characters. While they seemed great throughout the book I honestly didn’t really care what happened to them.
All in all the book was action packed and interesting, but it just wasn’t for me.
John Robinson has been married thirty-eight years to the finest woman on the planet, his wife Barb. The father of two grown sons and grandfather of two, he’s also the retired owner of a successful financial planning firm. John hopes to go into full-time writing someday; as the author of the popular Joe Box (and soon to be equally popular Cameron Bane) suspense series, he’s well on his way. He’s made some good friends in the publishing world, including writers Karen Ball, Brandilyn Collins, Alton Gansky, and Christy-award winner James Scott Bell, and all of them greatly—and graciously—shared their talents in helping John hone his craft. In addition to his writing John is a much in demand speaker and teacher, having taught fiction tracks for three years at a nationally-ranked writers conference just outside Santa Fe, New Mexico.
