#Review: Exodus 2022 – Kenneth G. Bennett
An ordinary vacation soon turns out to be anything but for Joe Stanton. His mind is riddled with images he can’t explain. He hears a voice so sweet inside his head, yet he has no idea where it’s coming from. Though he’d like to believe that the phenomenon he’s experiencing is just a random occurrence, deep inside he knows it’s not.
As the voice grows stronger, Joe starts to see the images gain clarity within his mind. The unknown being knows exactly what it wants, and it’ll utilize Joe’s vulnerabilities to the fullest extent. At first, he starts to question his sanity. There has to be a suitable explanation for what he’s going through. Granted, he can’t quite make sense of it all just yet, but he’ll do everything possible to do just that.
As Joe’s life continues to spiral out of control, he soon realizes that everything isn’t happening at random. He’s become a vessel for the voice’s demands, and he’ll do everything possible to help in fulfilling it’s every wish. His life further changes when he comes face to face with the voice’s owner. What he’s going through is nothing he’s ever gone through before. A phenomenon he’ll make the most of.
When attempts on his life are made, Joe soon realizes that the situation is more involved than he knew. Others know about the visions he’s had, and are willing to circumvent any and all attempts to make sure The Exodus doesn’t happen. Though he knows he has the power to make things happen, he’s not exactly sure if he wants to do as he should. Mia obviously has an agenda, one she’s pulled him into. If he’s to succeed in getting to the bottom of things before all hell breaks, he’ll need to come to terms with Mia wants from him. The question is, how can he do that when he’s not exactly sure what he’s supposed to do in the first place?
A mind-boggling thriller, Exodus 2022 will definitely keep you guessing with every turn of the page. Kenneth has done a great job in putting together a world where the unexpected truly happens. Who knew that whales could be so intuitive and crafty in the hopes of achieving an end to their own means. He’s delivered a thought-provoking tale that truly leaves you wondering as to whether such ideas could take place in real life. This is a definite must-read, a book you won’t regret picking up!
Joe Stanton is in agony. Out of his mind over the death of his young daughter. Or so it seems.
Unable to contain his grief, Joe loses control in public, screaming his daughter’s name and causing a huge scene at a hotel on San Juan Island in Washington State. Thing is, Joe Stanton doesn’t have a daughter. Never did. And when the authorities arrive they blame the 28-year-old’s outburst on drugs.
What they don’t yet know is that others up and down the Pacific coast—from the Bering Sea to the Puget Sound—are suffering identical, always fatal mental breakdowns.
With the help of his girlfriend—the woman he loves and dreams of marrying—Joe struggles to unravel the meaning of the hallucination destroying his mind. As the couple begins to perceive its significance—and Joe’s role in a looming global calamity—they must also outwit a billionaire weapons contractor bent on exploiting Joe’s newfound understanding of the cosmos, and outlast the time bomb ticking in Joe’s brain.
