Publisher's Description

In the near future, fugitive Chase Sterling evades the transhuman life his creators intended him to lead. He connects with the Underground Church, confident his enhanced strength and intelligence make him the perfect guardian for those forced into a strange and secret existence. What could possibly go wrong? His unimpressed bodyguard is out to get him, his affection for a certain young woman may not be mutual, and a deceitful recruit accompanies Chase on a rescue mission . . . with plans to kidnap him. The leader of the underground is dying and the government is closing in. The super powers Chase relies on are switched off by an enemy he thought he had escaped. It's enough to make a transhuman give up. Will he find the courage to keep going before all humanity is lost?

    What an admirable undertaking such as this syfy story - it blows your mind - it is kind of like a view of how it would be in the end times when Christianity would be thought of as criminal - Christians would be in hiding - they will be hunted and when caught - killed - in this though you have Chase - who knows that this is the way this is happening and that he can help but some Christians in hiding don't believe he is for real - and that there is someone who has the ability to kill him - they have his killswitch to his cyborg brain and shut him down from saving humanity - he trusts in GOD to protect and save him - and listen ladies and gentlemen - shouldn't we all? so - what happens - does he die? is he able to save them? does someone get the killswitch? I think you all will be surprised ....you see this book is amazing at how it keeps you in suspense and on your toes and all the twists and turns,.....I received a copy of this book to read for an honest review

    Although not as captivating as the first book, Wake the Dead, Killswitch did offer its own list of merits.

    It centered mainly about the underground church and how Chase tried to insert himself in this strange life of people who are far different from the world he lived in.

    The Christianity portrayed in this book is strong, and at times it felt too strong for me. I did have a problem with the people thinking that lying was a sin. Remember Rahab and her blessing for her lie that protect God's people? Only the bearing of false witness aka lying to harm another is a sin. So that part kind of bothered me, especially when the theft of supplies wasn't frowned upon. (Of course the theft was needed to survive.)

    The narrative was at times jilted and I was left with filling in the blanks to obtain the picture needed. BUT that didn't keep me from reading. This story wasn't about the action or the underground church versus the WR. It was about Chase. And all about Chase.

    On that note, the book brought the deep impact of Chase's actions and reactions to his new world. The reader will see him evolve from a man who thought he could save the people, to a man who had it all taken from him (again), and finally to the man who surrendered to a higher power which gave him strength he never knew he had.

    I look forward to the next installment. I have to know what happens in Detroit! And I have to know the answers to the questions that Killswitch left me with.

    ***I received this book through NetGalley in exchange of an honest review***
