Event: A Novel (Event Group Thrillers)

In the summer of 1947, an unidentified object crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. There were no survivors. Now it’s happened again. But this time, two creatures have emerged from the wreckage alive . . .
 
One is a small being that is kind and benevolent, brimming with intense emotion and intelligence. The other, however, is an animal of remarkable strength and power. It has been brought clandestinely to our world with one sole purpose: the total extinction of all life on Earth. It is called the Destroyer of Worlds.
 
Only the Event Group, the most secret agency in the history of the U.S. government, is prepared to wage battle against such a creature. The Event Group is a dedicated collection of the nation’s most brilliant men and women of science, philosophy and the military. Their difficult task: solving the mysteries of the past and uncovering the hidden truths behind the myths and legends propagated throughout world history. In doing so they protect America from past mistakes—and ensure that history’s errors will never be repeated.
 
An act of war that started in New Mexico decades ago, and was covered up by another far darker organization, has been discovered by the Group at the same time as the new and seemingly identical incident threatens to wipe out the Earth’s population. In the desert wastelands of the American Southwest, a battle is about to commence as the two creatures set out to fulfill their own destinies among the human race.
 
Led by the valiant Major Jack Collins, the Event Group wages total war in the heat-soaked sands of the desert landscape. Using the benevolent creature as an ally and resource, they combine forces with the powerful might of the U.S. military and prepare themselves for an epic battle against the most dangerous threat against human existence that history has ever seen.
 
Event tells of an epic struggle between two worlds. Author David Lynn Golemon has written a classic supernatural thriller, each page bringing human civilization closer to extinction, that proves a blistering roller-coaster ride of thrills and adventure.

A decent rehash of older stuff There are several reviewers here who want to tell us that this book is “right-wing”.I am here to tell you that it is NOT political in any sense. My feeling is that the reviewers in question take offense that the author is enamored with the US Military.No surprise there since he was a member!However, just because someone professes a “love of country” and puts forth a can do, do no wrong version of the military, that does not make it “right-wing”, any more than bashing the military would make it “left-wing”. You do not need a “balance” in everything people. There isn’t a need for a character to be against the military, it’s workings, ideas or people in this story.So, if you are on the fence about purchasing this book, DO NOT make the mistake of basing it on any political viewpoint you think you might find in this book…There isn’t any.Now, on to the book. I have read perhaps 1000 SciFi books in my life and this one rates right in the middle. I have read it before in many shapes and forms. The story is so familiar I cannot pinpoint exactly which story it reminds me of, but remind me.. it does.If you read a lot of sci-fi, you’ll feel the same.The problems….The clichés are abundant and by abundant I mean rampant.The sugary “insta-love” between a lead male and a secondary female, the “uber” soldiers the MacGyver nemesis from another nations ex-military “elite”, and most of all, the ridiculous nobility complex most of the characters seem to have…My biggest beef about the book is not the story itself, but the lack of “minds-eye”, meaning in many cases, you do not get a complete picture of the person, animal or thing the author is attempting to describe.We know all too well how they “feel”, we know little about how they look.The entire reason a “good book” is a “good book” is it’s ability to portray its characters, settings and situations in your mind. This book falls short.Are the monsters supposed to be mini Godzilla’s or what?I found it so hard to pinpoint who was who, who looked like what, who was speaking that at the end of the book, the wraps ups were lost on me.After the first 50 pages this book became my lunch break book and I finished it in 3 days. I liked it, I want to read the next one, but I won’t be paying for overnight delivery.

Enjoyable and fast-paced! “Event” hits the ground running from page one as it sets the stage explaining one of the great unsolved mysteries from the past century – the incident at Roswell, NM. Major Jack Collins is introduced early in the book as the new security boss of the Event Group, a covert military group that has the blessing of the White House to investigate unexplained myths and mysteries around the world. Collins is called in to head up the group that investigates a 2nd saucer crash within miles of the 1947 Roswell crash. The Event Group must act fast because they are up against another ultra-secret group who’s after the inhabitants and secrets that lie within the downed saucer.Author David Lynn Golemon, a former Special Ops himself, does a great job introducing the reader to many memorable characters. He takes his time developing the characters because “Event” is the first book in what will become a series about Collins and his cohorts. Golemon also displays his knowledge of tactics and weaponry throughout the book making the unimaginable almost believeable.The plot drags a little during the middle of the book, but certainly picks up speed as the Event Group goes on site to investigate the craft and finds an unexpected survivor who threatens all of human life. The gore and body count pile up as the book rockets to its anticipated climax.RECOMMENDED for all conspiracy buffs and those who enjoy alien invasion plots.

Fun & Fast Moving With Nasty Monsters From Outers Space! While I’m not a huge sci fi fan, this book was a great, fun, fast moving read. From the first chapter set outside Roswell in the 1940’s till the final battle versus the nasty man eating aliens, I was hooked. If you like thrillers or sci fi, check it out. Lots of great imagination in the story and some not so imaginary weapons, make for an interesting read.My only complaint (which kept me from giving this book five stars) was that I could pretty much pick out who the aliens WOULD NOT eat right away and since 90% of them made it, I thought that made that part of the story somewhat predictable.I DO look forward to more novels from this great new writer!
