The Ark: A Novel by Boyd Morrison [Book Review]



The Ark: A Novel by Boyd Morrison is a fascinating adventure with intriguing characters and a epic quest that will have you turning the pages faster than ever before. I picked this up after getting the The Roswell Conspiracy off of Amazon on a Daily Deal and since I like to begin a series in order, I decided to give The Ark: A Novel a shot. I have to admit I was really surprised with how well this book was written and I couldn't put it down. There is a lot of fast-paced action, twists and turns, a completely new view (for me, anyways) on Noah's Ark, and the characters are great.

Archaeologist Dilara Kenner is contacted by an old family friend with information regarding her father who has been missing for several years. This meeting is the beginning of a wild ride that spans from Seattle, WA to Turkey and everywhere in between. Although the story starts with Kenner, the main focus is on Tyler Locke, former Army combat engineer and current engineer at Gordian, and his best friend Grant Westfield who served with Locke and is currently an electrical engineer at Gordian as well. The purpose of these characters coming together and flying all over the world? To stop the destruction of the world's population and find Noah's Ark of course!

The ideas, places, events, and characters are so real that you feel like you are a part of the adventure too. Reading the Afterword, Morrison explains a lot about the ideas used in the book and how they are real or used in the story. Morrison's blend of reality versus imaginary is extremely well done and helps to make the story move in a very believable direction that a reader can immerse in. It would make for a great movie too!
