Intelligent Design: Revelations Review

Intelligent Design: Revelations

By J.M. Erickson 

Intelligent Design: Revelations is a science fiction novella that looks at the origins of our existence as a species, and our place in the universe. The story begins on the planet Mars during its apex where the balance between technology and nature is achieved. All is well until the Gemini planetoids between Mars and Jupiter fall out of their orbits and are set for a collision course. Master Architect Janus and his peers set forth a plan to not only preserve as much of their culture as possible, but the majority set out to find their Creator. Over six million years later on planet Earth, Lieutenant Colonel David Farrell is baffled by a conspiracy that not only cuts through the US's security as if it were non-existent, but also defies the laws of nature and the rules of science. FEMA Director Roberta Josephine Riesman's period of mourning her soul mate's sudden death is cut short by an assignment that requires her to spy on an old friend. Thrust in the middle of a mystery that involves the greatest natural disaster encountered by humans, Riesman discovers that the very core of human existence is about to be challenged. Earth is not prepared. Reluctantly, she is confronted with a choice – walk away to live in France with the memories of her paramour, or take the challenge to make a difference. 


Andrea Perez is on the verge of discovering how to bend light, when the head of NASA’s search for intelligent life division approaches her. He informs her that there has been evidence of something intelligent just out of sight behind the sun. The problem is every piece of data seems to disappear or become corrupt, along with each scientist working on it. This begins the first day of Perez’s new life where she also disappears from the human population, and world. She is taken to a world known as Terra, and spends the rest of her life there working on keeping the planet invisible to earthers.

I didn’t quite understand the first half of the book. There was a bit of technology talk that was over my head, and didn’t really keep me interested. At the halfway point was when it started getting interesting to me. I finally warmed up to Andrea when she became more comfortable on Terra. I was intrigued with the story as it seemed quite possible for all this to happen. Personally though, I don’t believe that there was no God, and that we are alien descendants.
