The Savior’s Game


The Savior’s Game (Daniel Byrne – 3) by Sean Chercover

Daniel Byrne is haunted by the future. Literally.

It happened to his uncle. It happened to the woman he loves. And now it’s happening to him.

It started as a voice only he could hear. Then he found himself visiting another world. A world both familiar and strange. A world inextricably linked to our own.

And the things he sees there, come true…here. It’s a power others are willing to kill for.

There’s no one Daniel can trust. Nowhere to hide. Chased across the globe by mysterious assassins, he struggles to decipher the visions plaguing him. Visions of miracles and massacres, conspiracy and catastrophe. And behind it all, a powerful adversary the likes of which we’ve never seen before.

One thing that’s clear: the universe is warning him of a cataclysmic change, an event that is either a bloody Armageddon or a shining new beginning. Daniel thinks he can see the answer—and maybe even change the outcome, before it’s too late.

But there’s a fine line between messiah and madman.

My Review

4 stars

Daniel Byrne is affected with Anomalous Information Transfer (AIT) and has been suffering from visions of the future and a coming apocalypse. He is trying to figure out these visions, what and where they are and if he can stop them. But as Daniel tries to stop his visions he is being chased across the world by some assassins that don’t want to change the course of the future. Daniel has no one to trust although he is going to do his best to stop the future that he keeps seeing.

Daniel is a former priest that has walked away from that profession. He has had his faith deeply shaken. In this book he is suffering from the visions that many others that have been affected by AIT have. He is kept on the run and it looks like he might not save the day no matter how hard he tries.

This is the first book in this series that I have read. Not having known that background I think this is an interesting story. It seems to be rough and almost like the author went off on a metaphysical rant that had me questioning this book. Over all it is an interesting read.

I admit that I had a peak at the other reviews for this book and it looks like the first two in the series (The Trinity Game and The Devil’s Game) are really good. I want to check them out to see what I have missed.

I received The Savior’s Game from the publisher for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
