BOOK REVIEW FROM GOODREADS.COM "CAPTIVATING!" 4 STARS:

Tormented by guilt after the death of his fiancé, John Timmons lives life in a fog, retreating to his mountain cabin after work. While out hiking, a reflection catches his eye and he spots a small object sitting on a log in a nearby river. After a torturous journey down a ravine, he retrieves the object. It is mostly unremarkable but is engraved with the strange phrase "Project Daf Yasfhat". From this moment forward, John's life and those around him are never the same.

Patrick Skelton's "The Device" is a gripping tale that captivates readers with very subtle science fiction elements. Like all good directors or story tellers, it is what Skelton doesn't tell you in the narrative that keeps the reader guessing where it is all leading. Who is the mysterious man that appears throughout all of John's life like a guardian angel? What really happened to John's biological parents? What is the unnatural affliction to sound John has? Most of all, what is the device?

"AN AMAZING READ!" The Caffeinated Diva Book Reviews

The Device is the debut novel by author Patrick Skelton, a dystopian/science fiction novel that I just couldn't put down. I am usually not a big science fiction fan because all too frequently the sci-fi aspects become the entire focus, overpowering the characters and their humanity, as well as overwhelming the story line. In The Device, the science fiction aspect enhances, rather than overpowers, the incredibly intriguing story.
