It wasn't just that the writing is spectacular, although it is. Reminiscent of a modern-day Tolkein, the descriptions create an irresistible world that drags you in, ready or not. Silence. Flash. Gone.
It wasn't just that the adventure sweeps you right off your feet in a blend of technology and sword-fighting, art and music, love and crime, in a glorious thrill ride that never goes too far for you to suspend your disbelief.
It wasn't even that the plot bends your mind so that you're never quite steady, even on the last page, still thinking, "Wait, WHAT?!" and flipping back to the beginning to make sure you didn't miss something.
It's more than that.
There's a deeper tug to this wonderful first book in the Newirth Mythology. There are ideas, concepts in this book, feelings that are implied rather than stated, a Grand Something that's hard to put your finger on. Something that makes you need to reflect for a while when you've finished reading. Something that cracks open the part of you that was dusty and forgotten in your mind since you were ten or eleven years old. A yearning, an ambition toward a better self, a nobler purpose, a happier and more glorious expression of yourself.
I remember coming over a hilltop in my parents' car and seeing the ocean for the first time, when I was a child, and the way the vastness of it wrenched something open in me that would never quite close again.
Sometimes, that openness gets squished almost shut, that excitement and wonder over our possibilities as human beings, that glad curiosity over What It All Means. The mundane and difficult drudgeries of life squish it almost shut, and we shrug and call that "being an adult." We wonder why we feel so tired and flat inside, and we forget about that little crack, that tiny openness.
Then, if we're lucky, we stumble across a story like this, a story that reminds us life can be worth something, that beauty is worth fighting for, that our work, our place in the world can really matter.
That love changes everything.
According to the authors website, the sequel to this book is coming soon. I can't wait to read it... multiple times!
The Invasion of Heaven takes off in an instant and holds its pace throughout. A story full of mind bending ideas, suspense and betrayal. Thought provoking and intelligently creative.
It is my opinion that author, Michael Koep, accomplished something here that I have seen difficult for even seasoned authors to perfect. Being descriptive enough, but not overly so. What a finely tuned read. I was able to easily connect with the characters, experiencing the range of emotions right alongside them. Fear, anger, sympathy, confusion, doubt and even the butterflies of love and passion. Yet, he was not OVERLY wordy. I have often found myself reading too much filler, information I find useless, unnecessary. Not this time. I was pleased to find myself hooked on every word, not skimming or skipping sections like I often do.
I cannot wait for more! Bravo Michael B. Koep. Well done. :)
