What others are saying about, “Voice in the Wilderness.”
How much power does one voice have? H.L Wegley has written an action-packed, politically terrifying, hair-raising thriller about the need to guard our freedoms–lest they be snatched away. An edge-of-your seat race to keep one man from taking over the United States–don’t miss it!
If you’re looking for a rich and creative adventure through a dystopian future in the heart of America’s powerbase, then Voice in the Wilderness will be a wild ride that you won’t forget anytime soon. Watching this duo tackle this massive mission, which stretched across the US in mesmerizing detail, from DC to Oregon, was such an enjoyable read….I would recommend it to anyone. KC and Brock, an insider who knows where the bodies are buried and her longtime protector and friend, must rise to this dangerous occasion to prevent the unthinkable from happening. Every scene seems essential, and there weren’t any sections that I found myself just “getting through”. I enjoyed it all – thoroughly, and I can’t wait to see where this series goes from here. Wegley has a sizable talent, to be sure.
The novel opens with tension. The main character, a freckle-faced, red haired beauty named K.C. Banning receives a text message from inside the White House that she’s being set up. She’s a techno-genius who works for the government. There’s one thing for certain, the author knows his technology.
As K.C. sets off across the country to get as far away from the beltway as she can, the author’s skill shines in painting a clear picture of the beauty of rural America.
K.C.’s childhood, Christian political-blogger friend, Brock Daniels, sees her image on a television news program and knows exactly where she will go to hide. Brock draws upon his deep faith and this sustains him. K.C. struggles with God, but as things get darker she begins to rely upon Him. Her fledgling faith is presented in a natural way. The author shapes a story sending both characters into what looks like will be their doom, but somehow there is hope. There is also a wonderful use of humor which lightened some of the more terrorizing moments.
Tension and very realistic factual descriptions of all aspects of this story make this a film waiting to be produced. A very fine, entertaining read.
Mr. Wegley is a talented writer, and he keeps the story moving right along while allowing us to cheer for the good guys and boo the villains. A definite page turner…not necessarily recommended for bedtime reading.
The author took present day events and exaggerated them into fearful possibilities where America nears becoming the dystopian U.S.A. As usual, Wegley delivers on excitement. I believe the author intends this to be a wake-up call to young people in the USA to use their talents and God’s wisdom to fight tyranny and evil wherever it shows its ugly head. I love the use of a special childhood relationship that grows into a forever love. This book is worth a read if you like thrillers, politics, or both, or even if you like a little romance. There’s something for everyone.
Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a large set of very unique/colorful characters to keep track of. This could also make another great dystopian movie, or mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
