It’s the mid-21st century when Sergeant First Class Grant Justice is killed during an ambush on an enemy tank column.
Six hundred years later, his body is retrieved from the frozen, arctic lake where he perished. Re-animated by a team of scientists, Grant awakens to a civilization that has abolished war. A civilization that has outlawed violence and cherishes Peace above all else. A civilization that has been enslaved by an alien race called the Minith.
Grant is humankind’s final hope against the alien menace. He must be… the Peace Warrior.
One of all time SiFi authors is Andre Norton, who I consider to be world class.
That is before read Steve L. Hawk's first book about Grave Justin. I could not but it down, and went on to read all three. It is a A+ novel and series.
Keep up the outstanding writing Mr. Hawk.
While I truly hated the beginning of this book, emphasizing with the horror way too much, I understood the necessity of the contrast between old ways & new. I understand the necessity for standing up against evil in whatever form it appears. I've never understood the necessity for losing thousands & thousands of men for a temporary victory of a few acres of land. Nor do I believe in the necessity for following orders clearly designed for mass cruelty or rank advancement. However, you dealt with mr.blue much more kindly than I wanted to! At the least, he'd have had his mouth taped shut & paid for the action that costs three lives.
The concept of this story felt plausible & the direction we have been going in past years feels like we could wash the very life from our peoples. Sure I'd rather no mother lose her son to war, but to not provide for the necessity of war is an error we will pay for even as things are now. It simply isn't possible to live in total peace. I believe in a creator. I believe He gave us the ability to choose life or death. I believe He chose to do that rather than have puppets. And I believe we are always going to run into others who choose poorly & selfishly as well as run up against the laws of nature we can't always be protected from. Your story demonstrated that. You depicted a character who was strong enough to deny the cruelty of others and not be bitter. And you showed that sometimes our choices are very hard but worth it. Thanks for your hard work. Thanks for an entertaining but thought provoking premise. I would like to read more.
