To keep a promise and save his long-lost goddaughter, Madelin, computer programmer Jedd Altran sacrificed everything, including his wife and newborn son. Now, they must pass through worlds far different than their own to escape the clutches of government killers.

In a world where rare individuals have evolved, the government kidnaps specific children to study and utilize their abilities. Madelin has been imprisoned in such a facility for thirteen years and suffers from medically induced amnesia. Facing a hopeless future, haunted dreams, and an invisible past, each morning is an Invisible Dawn and life holds no meaning, until she meets Jedd. Her newly discovered godfather becomes her beacon in tumultuous seas as they strive to find answers and allies.

On the run from PASTOR Agency’s first trained shifter, an egotistical man with power hungry desires, Madelin and her godfather find their lives intertwined with a broke Cajun gambler, an ex-mercenary in search of redemption, and a rebellious Vampire.

Can they survive nature’s mysteries and humanity’s greed? Will they find salvation? Only a Darwinian victory will do, but even that may prove futile.

My Review:

Invisible Dawn by Weston Kincade is a thrilling and intricately written Sci-Fi novel. As soon as you open the book, you are thrown into the action! With every turn of the page you are brought further into a world of mysterious realms, amazing mental abilities, and an extreme government agency trying to contain it all. The main characters are riddled with personal demons, unable to escape the past but needing to forge through into the future. There is no time for regret. For stopping to look back will most likely get them killed. They have been brought together by fate and will battle whatever comes their way in order to stay together. In order to protect The Shifter.

Madelin is an extraordinary and uniquely gifted young woman. From a very young age she was sought after by an elite government agency known as PASTOR. They recognized her many talents and would stop at nothing to obtain her. With her family out-of-the-way, she is kidnapped by PASTOR and hidden away from the rest of the world. However, her godfather Jedd Altran has never given up hope of finding her. He has made saving Madelin his sole purpose, in his tragic and lonely life. With the help of two men, Daniel and Roger, Jedd is able to not only rescue is god-daughter but fulfill his role as her protector. Now with PASTOR tracking their every move and following closely behind, Madelin must search deep within herself to ignite, and harness the unbelievable powers that surge through her being.

This book is incredibly detailed, and at times it may feel like an overload of information. I do suggest reading this with limited distractions, because if your mind does happen to wander for a moment, you will feel as if you’ve missed an important piece of the story. There were some grammatical errors which, at times, took my attention away from the story, but did not take away from this being a very well written novel.

My Rating:

Happy Reading,

Hazel O’Shea
