Review: Dawn of Destiny (Epic #1) by:Lee Stephen

Dawn of Destiny (Epic, #1)
About the Book:
Some men go to war for the glory. Some men go to war to escape. For Scott Remington, war is entirely different. It is a belief. It is a calling. It is a destiny. Leaving everything behind-his fiancée, his future, his life-he embarks on a mission of faith into a battle he can barely understand. This is his story. This is his war. This is only the beginning.

About the Author:
Born and raised in Cajun country, Lee Stephen spent his childhood paddling pirogues through the marshes of South Louisiana. When he wasn't catching bullfrogs or playing with alligators in the bathtub (both true), he was escaping to the world of the imagination, creating worlds in his mind filled with strange creatures and epic journeys. This hasn't stopped.

Now a resident of Luling, Louisiana, Lee spends time every day delving into the world of Epic, the science-fiction series that has come to define him as a writer and producer. Alongside his wife, Lindsey, their son, Levi, and their dog, Jake, Lee has made it a mission to create a series that is unique in its genre--one unafraid to address the human condition while staying grounded in elements of faith.

In addition to writing, Lee works full-time for the Department of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness. He has also spent time as a church deacon, guitar hobbyist, and New Orleans Saints season ticket holder. He is a graduate of Louisiana College in Pineville.

My Review:
 Scott Remington was trained for war. Having left behind his life and his fiancé, he steps out onto the battle ground. With aliens all around ready to destroy any human in sight, Scott must confide in the small band of soldiers around him.

 The story begins with Scott arriving at his banker, meeting a few men there that will feel more like brothers to him. Upon meeting their advisor, they realize that this isn't going to be any ordinary training. As training begins, the war with the aliens worsen and it becomes crucial that this group of soldiers hurry off the battlefield.  Everything seemed to be running along quite smoothly until they saw what they were up against and that changed it all. Some things just can't be unseen.

 The author did a wonderful job describing in detail the premise of the book as well as the entire story. It wasn't hard to imagine, o the author conveyed his words vey well! Great book!
