Now, with that said, I first saw the cover of this book last year and knew that I would read it one day. I had no idea what the Trojan Project was or how good the story might be, only that I was drawn to the cover. Over the past months, I learned more about the author and read a couple of the reviews. I purchased the book and it sat on my TBR list for quite a while.
Finally, the book came up to read. I immediately was drawn into the story from the first page. Page after page I read and did not want to put the book down, but I had no choice. The story did not escape my memory and I was drawn back again and again to finish the book. I had to know what would happen. I read the book from cover to cover in a week, which is very fast for me. That alone should attest to the powerful nature of the story.
The story is suspenseful and the characters are described well as were their surroundings. I felt I knew all the main characters. As Sara, Andy, and the kids made a mad dash to London, I felt as if I were there with them. I found myself tense with every close call. And Pete and Josh? They were quite lucky. I won’t spoil it for you. You’ll need to read it for yourself.
This story is easy to read and hard to put down. I am pleased to give the story five stars and I highly recommend it to anyone, young and old, man or woman alike.
Sarah had planned to be at a friends house for the night and her two daughters were to stay with a neighbor until her husband Pete returned to pick them up. He and three of his field workers had gone up to Top Meadow to check on Pete's sheep herd. But, unknown to Pete, his daughter Jose came down with a sore throat and Sarah decided to stay home with her children.
Sarah had tried to call Pete to tell him that she was with the children but couldn't get through. The only sound coming through her cell phone was static. Apparently the hills were blocking the signal. Sarah wasn't that concerned knowing that Laura would tell Pete that the kids were with her at home. But as the hours passed, Sarah started to worry about Pete absence. It was getting late and he always called when knew he would be delayed. As she stood outside their home watching for his headlights to come up the road, she noticed a strange light hovering over the valley. As the light died out a green mist rolled in. Fear rose in Sarah as she stood watching. Everything was so still and quiet. Nothing was moving, not even the cows in the field. As Sarah's fears increased she went in to check on her sleeping daughters. They had slept through the whole phenomenon but to ease some of her worry and fear she decided to spend the night in their room. Surely, by the time morning came, Pete would be in their own room sound asleep.
The next morning Pete was still missing. Sarah phoned her friends and neighbor in hopes that someone would know something about, not just Pete, but also the lights from the night before. But her calls were unanswered. In hopes of finding someone to ease her fears for Pete, she loads the girls into her car and headed down to the valley. She hadn't gone far when she runs across Dave. Dave had been with Pete the day before and informs her that Pete, as well as everyone else from the valley, is dead. While telling her his story, Sarah started noticing that his flesh was melting from his body. His dying words to her is a warning to not touch anything nor anyone.
In Sarah's attempt to find someone to help her and explain what has happened she drives to the next town to speak with the police there. Andy, the young constable on duty, actually believes she has lost her mind as she describes what she has seen. But when his superior comes in and hears about the death of Dave, who is one of his best friends, he heads to the valley to check it out for himself. As Sarah and Andy wait for his return, the military show up with full protective suits and weapons. And when they asked for Sarah by name, something tells Andy that he should take Sarah's story seriously. He also fears for her safety with these men and tells the Sergeant that Sarah had gone back to her home and that the woman and children there with him are his own wife and kids. As the military unit leaves, he convinces Sarah that their life in in danger and they must leave immediately before they come back.
Follow Sarah and Andy as they are chased by the military all the way to London. See what happens when two unexpected people show up in London after surviving the light and mist. And find out exactly what The Trojan Project really is, who created it and why.
When I was a child, my family moved to Utah. I remember two nights that a neighbor came to warn us of the lights in the sky. The first night she knocked on our door around midnight. She was yelling and crying, trying to tell us there was a burning ball of light in the sky. The next night she came to tell us there was a burning rod of fire in the sky. Both nights we all went outside to see these lights for ourselves. And both nights we saw exactly what she saw. I can remember being scared but I couldn't take my eyes off the lights as they moved across the sky. Later we were told the lights were experimental air crafts being tested by the military. I never really believed that story, but after reading The Trojan Project, I think I believe it now .
Great book. It will make you stop and wonder what really goes on behind our backs and how much is covered up forever.
As stated in some prior reviews, the plot is pretty thin. There are no surprises or plot twists. But because of the suspenseful writing and drama, I found the story engaging enough that I was drawn along until the end. The best part was in the cave with Pete and Josh while they tried to find their way out by following the sheep.
And with the mixture of an abundance of rich characters throughout the story, it kept the reading fresh. We all know someone who talks endlessly about nothing. Sigh!! I thought the end was fitting with Colin the lorry driver. He, who never has an adventure.
It’s also terrifying to think there might be a country with this type of weapon in their arsenal. Shudder!!
And here is what takes away from the story. There’s a mannerism that Thornton uses excessively as a sign of frustration or anger. It became annoying. I can see one person doing it as a habit, but not every character. It’s the slamming of fists or hands on desks, tables and steering wheels. I also found a handful of proofreading errors.
I recommend this book for a suspenseful romp through the English countryside and parts of London. I give my 4 feathers.
