Publisher's Summary

A search for answers. A horrifying infection. Enlightenment...or madness?

A rogue meteor storm brings a forgotten virus that decades ago left several people dying with "itchy voices in their heads." Brad and Cora are caught in the storm. One of them becomes infected.

Tracking the rogue storm is General Keller, a man warped from anguish over his own son's horrific fate, who will stop at nothing to discover what really happened.

As a breakthrough AI analyzes the infection, a startling discovery is made, proof of our origins - and evolution - lie within the infected.

As General Keller deploys all his resources to recover a sample - of storm debris, or anyone infected - Brad and Cora are thrust into his disturbed world and a deadly chase ensues.  

Will the discovery be lost forever? Will they survive?...or will the general capture them alive? 

Devel Django, a near-future thriller, whispers at the fundamental question of humankind - Where did we come from? - and gropes at the undefined space between science and religion. It is a unique tapestry woven with coarse threads of horror, hybrid metal synapses, and detailed with a fine, ancient brush from a long-lost palate of knowledge. 

Combining elements of Phillip K. Dick, Stephen King, and Matthew Mather, Devel Django is a thinking person's thriller.

Good start to the series

The story was a bit difficult to follow at times with multiple flashbacks and dream sequences, but ultimately it all made sense. Overall a very interesting concept and I really want to hear the next in the series to see where all this goes.

Narrator was good, character voices and accents were spot on.


Thanks for the opportunity to review this book which I received free at my request.

Unique and occasionally compelling...

I am somewhat ambivalent on this offering. Solid performance by JJohns and he does have some interesting material to work with. The story meandered a lot at times, and it clearly is setting up a series, which is fun but also left the story hanging.

I can recommend this with some reservations. I did receive this book for free from the author in exchange for this independent review.
