I won Reset in a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for my honest review. This was the first time I have read anything by this author and I was blown away. The story begins in 1963 with Captain Will Barnes, USAF. He thinks he has had a dream and when he wakes up he finds himself in a straight jacket in a mental hospital. Last thing he remembers is working his shift in a missle silo in New York. Then we jump to present day with Staff Sergeant Michael Pritcher in the Tora Bora Mountains in Afghanistan. Michael's team is on a mission to capture of kill Taliban Terrorists. They follow the one that got away and Michael crawls into a crevice in the mountain. When he finds the terrorist he appears to be possessed by a floating orb. Michael and his partner Bug are soon having seizures. They get sent back to the U.S. for medical evaluation. The orb is captured and sent back with them. Major Legend Tyree is tasked with figuring out what it is. While this is happening journalist Josie Pritcher, wife of Michael, is interviewing Doomsday Prepper Will Barnes. The story is about all that Legend's team go through to try to figure out this alien technology. This book was very intense and kept me reading. I wanted to stay up all night. Author Brian Andrews really gives you something to think about as you read this book. I recommend this book and will be checking out additional works by this author.
We find ourselves with Michael Pitcher as he discovers something strange in a cave in Afghanistan that takes control of him. When Michael seems to recover from his ordeal in Afghanistan he is a completely different person and goes on the run. What is happening to Michael and what is the strange object that is found in the cave that affects all that it touches. I read Brian Andrews Tier One story and just loved it. When I saw Reset I was curious to see where he was going to take me with this story. You jump in right into a great mystery as you learn of a Captain in a straight jacket and in an asylum. It seems he almost started World War Three but he has no recollection of this. But at the end you learn that someone is controlling him. From there we have another man that has fallen under the control of something but we don’t know what. If this mind control issue was not enough we also have survivalists preparing for the next apocalypse. Can’t see how this fits together? Don’t worry, you will get sucked in and will see the big picture soon enough. But will you like how it ends. It sure makes you think. I loved this story. It has a great thrilling story with lots of action and the real touch of the military. If that was not enough, I loved the strong characters, especially the women. Give me a strong, intelligent woman and you have my full attention. This is a fantastic story and one I strongly recommend. You can’t go wrong with Reset, especially when it makes you think about the possibilities in the real world. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
