The truth is out there among the stars and so is the journey to thought-provoking enlightenment
D.K. Johnson has combined all the interesting and cool elements of space and ufology to deliver an original and satisfying tale that’ll make you believe. ‘Daniel James’ embarks on a journey from debunking the existence of extra-terrestrial life to belief as he witnesses an event that sets him on the path towards truth and revelations.
Being an astronomer and a man of rational science ‘Daniel’ has always viewed space and the wider cosmos with an objective logic, that is until one fateful night he finds himself in Joshua Tree National Park, injured and alone. Eventually he stumbles upon the company of two friendly strangers on a UFO pilgrimage.
“As he resigned himself to spending the night with his new companions, Daniel reluctantly settled in, rationalizing he might as well be the voice of reason for these strange men and their weird beliefs…”
After that night and following a mind blowing life-changing event, Daniel isn’t the same. His mind seems altered, his spirit is seemingly awakened and aware of what could actually be all around but just on a different plain or frequency. A weird kind of snapping sound seems to catch his attention every so often and his senses are seemingly improved. Something is trying to reach him and all of this eventually becomes a kind of enlightenment as Daniel sees things for what they really are.
Of course with these revelations comes the thought-provoking and ultimately revealing element of the government being involved and as they appear on the radar, the rabbit hole of the situation becomes apparent. Are we really alone? Are their forces in the shadows of government operating alongside these alien forces. Just what is the history with all of this? The answers and eventual twists make for some original and entertaining reading along with a well executed narration style full of rich description.
For anyone who is lightly interested in space or ufology will enjoy this one, I certainly did!
