Resurrect has been sitting on my desk for a few months, as I received a free copy from Litfuse Publicity Group and Monarch Books in exchange for an honest review, and I recently got around to reading it. The book is written by Commander David E. Stevens, a navy fighter pilot, and by the fighter jet on the book cover, I thought Resurrect might be a war novel, but I was completely wrong. I don't want to give away too many spoilers, so I'll leave the synopsis short.

Navy Commander Josh Logan is the main character in Resurrect and he is testing out a new fighter jet. After a malfunction, Logan quickly avoids crashing into civilians' homes, but ejects from the jet a few moments too late.

A year later, he awakes from coma, but he is now in a new enhanced body. A strange voice going by the name Jesse gives Josh a new mission - save the world from total destruction.

The plot of Resurrect was a complete surprise to me - a Six-Million Dollar Man has to save the world. It's not really original as it reminds of me of Captain America and the short-lived TV series Now and Again, but the book is well written with several twists-and-turns that gave a new spin to the premise. The author uses his Navy piloting background to navigate the main character, Josh, on his journey to save the world. Overall, I thought Resurrect was a fast action-packed thriller and I'm looking forward to reading book two in the series.
