BOOK SPOTLIGHT & REVIEW: Sleeper Protocol By Kevin Ikenberry

Sleeper Protocol
By Kevin Ikenberry
Genre: Science Fiction
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing

Book Description

Kieran Roark awakens in a wheelchair, unable to remember anything. As part of a classified experiment, he will have one year to learn his identity and recover his memory, or he will be euthanized by the state.

Scientist Berkeley Bennett has one mission: manipulate Kieran’s emotions in an attempt to bring back his memory. But when she falls in love with him, she is forced to make a harrowing decision that may cost Kieran his life.

What Kieran knows could save Earth from a coming war. Whether he believes the future is worth saving is another matter. Racing across an unfamiliar world in a body he does not recall, Kieran needs to discover who he was and, more importantly, who he is.

My Review:

Sleeper Protocol is a brilliant and intense novel. This science fiction plot is based around a man who was put to sleep many years earlier and now is being brought back to life in a world foreign to him. A treacherous war has changed the world tremendously and he works towards remembering who he once was. I couldn’t have predicted the emotional bond between the man, known as Sleepy, and his brain protocol, Mally. Author Kevin Ikenberry has written a science fiction novel with some remarkable twists, love, and hope in an extremely bleak world. 5 stars!
