Welcome to the Book Blog Tour of Hoodoo Sea by Rolf Hitzer!
The government of the United States of America is on the verge of startling the world. Billions of dollars had been invested in its space program. And now, the moment of truth had arrived. . .
Scott Reed is the man for the historic mission. He is the Wing Commander chosen by the elite brass at NASA. The assignment to test flight the first speed of light craft, held top secret, was about the shock the world. The risk? Utter and complete failure. The reward? Being a part of the greatest human accomplishment ever known to man.
Major James Harrow, second in command of the four person crew, despised his Wing Commander. Harrow was a proud and patriotic American. What was NASA thinking when they selected a Canadian to pilot the voyage? There was no comparison as to who was the better skilled aviator. This was his time, his moment. Major James Harrow was about to prove to everybody they were wrong to bypass him as Commander.
The weather conditions were perfect and lift-off for the test flight was textbook. The triumphant cheers from Mission Control in Houston were echoed all the way to Cape Canaveral. The silent fear of the first hurdle of the flight had been succumbed. All systems were go! That is, until the crew and SOLT-X1 entered the Bermuda Triangle. . .
Hoodoo Sea is an unusual read and full of unexpected plot twists. Like many other reviewers, I can honestly say that I did not expect the ending!
From the insight into the competitiveness and discipline of the NASA astronauts to the strange place where the astronauts find themselves, the book is never dull. Their unintended destination "The Land" seems like it may be an island back in time with the inhabitants living in caves and with minimal technology, but the mysterious properties of the place and the inhabitants keep you guessing.
While the book wasn't for me, I think that someone interested in Science Fiction and Christian fiction would better appreciate its strengths and enjoy it.
