This post is part of a book tour hosted by Novel Publicity.

Exodus 2022 by Kenneth G. Bennett 
Publisher: Booktrope
Publication date: 5/20/2014
Genre:  Science Fiction/Eco-Adventure Thriller/Fantasy

The story opens in the year 2022 at the Breakwater Motel on San Juan Island, off the coast of Washington State.  Protagonist Joe Stanton awakes in a state of panic, realizing his young daughter is missing from the room.  He is distraught and fears she is dead.  When the police are called in to investigate, readers learn that Joe is childless, and has in fact had an hallucination—the same hallucination that several other men recently experienced.  In the case of the other men, these visions quickly led to mental breakdowns and subsequent death. 

Joe and his girlfriend, Ella set out to discover the source of his debilitating mental condition and the compelling voice that is urging Joe to intercede in a looming environmental crisis.  In the course of seeking medical attention, Joe and Ella find themselves caught in the crosshairs of Sheldon Beck, an unscrupulous former soldier turned defense contractor, who hopes to capitalize on Joe's condition for his own personal gain. 

Against staggering odds, a race to save Joe’s life ensues, while the fate of life on planet earth as we know it hangs in the balance.  Can Joe and Ella outwit Beck and his henchmen?  Will imminent changes lead to disaster for humankind or a new beginning?   

Exodus 2022 is a fast-paced story driven by love, greed, and survival. Part thriller and part moral tale for our time, this highly imaginative novel is packed with action and rich in symbolism.  It is a classic battle between good and evil with enough twists and turns to keep readers on the edge of their seats to the very end. Its appeal transcends the science fiction genre.  Readers who like thrillers, and fans of James Patterson, Michael Crichton, and adventure authors will no doubt enjoy Exodus 2022.

About the AuthorKenneth G. Bennett is also the author of two young adult novels, THE GAIA WARS and BATTLE FOR CASCADIA.  A wilderness enthusiast who loves backpacking, skiing and kayaking, Ken lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and son and two hyperactive Australian Shepherds.
