Book Description

An amiable corporate manager by day and a matchmaker whenever he can get around to it, Calvin Newsome's new dream job falls into his lap when he's recruited by a secret worldwide organization whose agents use uncanny abilities to empower and influence everyday downtrodden individuals. Disaster strikes, however, when an elaborate scheme leaves Calvin as a prime murder suspect...and his new employer is presumably to blame.

With the authorities on his heels and his life left in ruin, Calvin uses his new powers to blend in until a journey for freedom becomes a quest for peace. As the agency's rival organization threatens the security of all of earth's inhabitants, he teams up with unlikely allies and battles surprising enemies hellbent on unleashing their power in a twisted version of justice, innocent lives be damned.

Review

"...a fast-paced exploration of corruption and abuse of power...an exciting story packed with twists, disasters and suspense." -- In Potentia

"The love story is complicated and emotional, not just lust-driven and superficial." -- Julia Edits

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart-Pounding Suspense July 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ultimate power corrupts ultimately. That's the overriding theme that, of course, the hero bucks. Harrison weaves a great tale of intrigue. I didn't know who to trust, and that kept the story suspenseful in all the best ways. The whole premise that people could shape shift and move things telekinetically in order to help people turn their lives around is awesome. Who wouldn't want to be able to do that? And yet we see that even do-gooders can be warped by power or greed.

I loved the hero, Calvin. Once I got past his willingness to jump into the Agency with so few questions asked (like Will Smith in Men in Black), I really liked who he became.

The only reason it's missing a star for me is that some of the inner monologues got a bit long. I saw another review that complained that there wasn't enough back story. That's nuts. If anything, I didn't need as much. But that said, I still kept turning the pages to find out what would happen next. I found the action resolution at the end very satisfying, but he left a few loose ends that I hope get tied up in the sequel--which I will definitely be buying!

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting read! March 26, 2012
By JLC125
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not your average conspiracy theory novel! I was easily drawn in to the story, which has enough twists to keep it fresh and intriguing, but not too many to make it hard to keep up. The main character is relatable without being cliche, and the details of his life and personality are revealed with excellent timing throughout the novel. I was very impressed with Guy Harrison's debut novel, and I can't wait to read the next one! He is a clever and creative author developing his style and finding his voice, while providing an exciting read. Loved the story, love the cover, it fits the novel perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good story March 23, 2013
By JaxonD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I gave up. Then I came back and I am glad. Good story. Good Character Development. It is reminiscent of a TV show I think. But it is a fun read. SciFi, Mystery, excellent job by this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars UFR Reviews Agents of Change July 9, 2012
Format:Paperback
For me I felt like this book started off a little bit on the slower side of things, which is one of my pet peeves in books, but there was one thing about this book that I think helped with this. The author has a pretty good sense of humor in the beginning of the book, so even though it starts off a little bit on the slow side the humor within the beginning helps distract you from the slower pace. And I always like a little bit of humor in my books, so that was kind of nice for me.

I think that the idea behind the organization that Calvin is recruited by will appeal to a lot of people, and they will find it interesting. The Agency basically does things to help people who are going through hard times in their life, which kind of feels a little like Pay it Forward to me. But in the times that we are, with a lot of people going through hard times, I can see how the idea of an Agency like this existing could be appealing to people.

While there are a lot of concepts in the book that I think are interesting I am not sure there was enough done with them to make them truly work within the book itself. I think the first problem I had with the book was the powers you get from being a part of the Agency. I felt like the powers could have been interesting if they made more sense within the context of the Agency, but the powers often had a way of overshadowing everything else, and the backstory behind them in connection with the Agency wasn't really strong enough to support it.

I felt like there were also a lot of problems with the secondary characters. I don't think any of the characters beside Calvin were designed to be likable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Read March 4, 2012
By RG3
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Agents of Change is a well conceived novel that is both compelling and comprised of a bevy of unforeseen twists and turns. As a casual reader I was most impressed by the rich character development and often found myself rooting for some of its characters.

Great Read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Read... July 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I really like the book cover picture. "Karma has a new face," is the perfect quote for this book's cover. Also, the pages feel thicker, like card stock. I'm guessing it's just my copy, but I've never had a book with pages this thick before. I really like the physical appearance and feel of the book.

After reading the first two chapters, you realize from the book's title that things will change. The story has a lot of excitement. Calvin Newsome (a.k.a. Kevin Stewart) is the main character who gets recruited onto the team, Agents of Influence.

Several times I was cracking up laughing as I was reading. Some were the obvious set-ups such as "a la Don King". Some were just normal statements that you can read, understand, and know are just simply true. "It's old, it's dirty, and most of it's patrons fit that description." Or, "Name me one woman who doesn't care for Denzel." I love a book with a good story line that can literally make me laugh out loud while reading.

Overall, I like the story. I have a teenage son who is now starting to read it also. It's nice when we can both read the same books, and talk about them after.
