Book Description

The epic and outstanding debut novel, Rise of an Angel.

In Indonesia, in the year 2180, Sergeant Jonathan Iveron discovered a strange, ancient artifact deep inside the enemy's base. And yet even stranger still, the artifact responded to him like it was somehow waiting for his arrival. The artifact saved his life and then gave him powers similar to the 'Angel units', who were newly-evolved beings that now roamed the Earth, named for their angel-like powers.

Little did he know that behind the artifact was a dark plot to overthrow his country. Now Jonathan is caught in the middle of a dark conspiracy and he must fight to save his own life and save his nation from being overrun by the unseen enemies. Will he make it? Or will the Dark Ones succeed in taking his life?

Rise of an Angel is an astounding and action-packed sci-fi adventure book, with a storyline that will pull you in immediately and immerse yourself in its hyper-realistic descriptions. The book is a potent and intriguing mix of action, sci-fi and fantasy, and of East and West that is quite unlike any book out there, since it is based in the country of Indonesia, 170 years in the future. The story revolves around the adventure of Jonathan Iveron as he travels around the exotic archipelago of Indonesia in the future and trying to understand the mysteries of an ancient and powerful artifact.

The book have received rave reviews from it readers:

‘I was really moved by the descriptive world that the author created. I thought that Oscar Simanjuntak redefined modern literature as we know it. The story just seemed to cling onto my sub-conscious mind. It was as if I was magically transported to ‘Waterloo Street’. I thought the script was a virtual manifestation of what a SLAM/BANG thrill ride truly should be. After I had read through the first few initial pages, I found myself developing a ravenous appetite for more.’
• Zac Knight, English teacher at the Wallstreet Institute.

‘Outstanding details in the action, really pleases the readers and encourages them to spend their time to read on. Extraordinary detail that, without fail, makes the readers imagine all of the scene and enthralling actions. Brilliant!’
• Nikko Wahyudhi, College student.

‘For me, some of the best writing was the description of environment and feeling.’
• Steve Huntley, Consultant Risk Manager.

‘An epic story of finding self-identity, bonding, relationship, friendship and fighting treachery. All wrapped up in an exotic scenery of wild life in futuristic Indonesia combined with the latest technology you’ve never dream of.’
• David, English Literature Student, University of Indonesia.

‘For this script that I have read, my impression is that it’s really good and brilliant. I think I really admire the character of Adam who is a father who really loves his family. The story is filled with tremendous action and with high technological effects, which makes this an exciting story. I like the story-line which is full of action and the author is also very imaginative.’
• Siska, College Student.

‘This is a mysterious script/story. A seemingly normal man’s life (at the beginning) turns into an action-packed sci-fi mystery/adventure. The main characters are very believable and easy to relate to. The script has a compelling story-line, the fact that the initial setting is of a common suburban neighborhood makes it even more believable.’
• Sophie Hudson, English teacher at Wallstreet Institute.

'Great stuff on the whole! You will be pulled in and hooked
immediately by the descriptions in this story. The chapters are
