Jedd Altran, a computer programmer and longtime friend of the Boatweits, sacrificed his relationship with his wife and newborn son to keep a promise and find his goddaughter. He finds deliverance in Madelin's discovery and breaks her out of the facility where she's remained for thirteen years. Madelin was kidnapped and trained by a black-ops agency to use her rare abilities in Plane Shifting to become the perfect tool, manipulating the world and its varied realities. However, all memories of her training and her parents' gruesome murders have been erased, leaving her a fragile, empty shell. Each morning Madelin awakes to an Invisible Dawn and life holds no meaning for her, until she meets Jedd. Her new-found godfather becomes her beacon in tumultuous seas as they strive to find answers and allies.
On the run from the PASTOR agency's first trained shifter, an egotistical man with power hungry desires, Madelin and her godfather find their lives intertwined with Roger, a broke Cajun gambler, and Daniel, an ex-mercenary in search of redemption. Can they survive nature's mysteries and humanity's greed? Will they find salvation?

Weston Kincaid's debut novel blurs genre lines - trying to describe it is going to be a challenge! It starts off as science fiction, adds some fantasy elements and then makes a sharp turn into horror.
Jedd has spent 12 years searching for his goddaughter Madelin, who was taken by agents of PASTOR (Phantom Assassin Shifting Technology & Organized Reconnaissance) when she was just a child, because she had the ability to shift - that is, open rifts into one of the other infinite planes of reality. Daniel, who lives in a different plane, lives tormented by his past and running from members of Black Force, a mercenary company with whom he used to work. Roger, in the same plane, is a gambler who is down on his luck when Daniel finds him beaten half to death in an alley. Juno, from yet another plane, is a member of the Traditor family, who are extremely long-lived, strong and agile, but have trouble dealing with the sun and some . unusual dietary needs. These are the main protagonists in the book. Chasing after Madelin is "Father" Leodenin, a very strong shifter with PASTOR, and a company of soldiers led by Marlin. Once on Juno's plane, Leodenin teams up with Juno's brother, Lord Alain.
The book focuses on keeping Madelin safe, getting her away from PASTOR and coming up with a plan to try to save the rest of the unwilling "volunteers" taken by PASTOR. Along the way there are many battles, from bullets to hand-to-hand, and twists and turns galore to keep the reader on her or his toes.
I found the story exciting and engaging - I enjoyed it from start to finish. For a debut novel, this one is remarkably well-done, carefully plotted and the characters well-developed. There were some issues with abrupt transitions and changes in POV, but once you fell into the rhythm it was fairly easy to keep up with them. Fans of cross-genre thrillers, suspense, science fiction, fantasy <u>and</u> horror should all find something to love in this book.

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. ~Hazel O'Shea Written for the Juniper Grove BlogWas this review helpful?
