About the Book:
A meteor strike plunges the world into darkness. A stranger to the village of Brigos Glen restores power and light, supplied by three businesses, known as “The Company,” located beyond the forbidden mountains. The stranger reveals a plan so the Brigons can maintain the power and share the light with outlying territories, which remain shrouded in darkness.
Now, seventy years later, The Company summons six Brigons, including the young engineer Sam Mitchell, to attend a conference in the mountains of the forbidden Outlands.
Responsible for compiling a report about Brigos Glen from his five companions, Sam learns how managers and villagers largely ignored the plan or compromised it to self-interest, forsaking their duty to share the light. They also took for granted The Company responsible for generating and transmitting the power.
In an ordeal fraught with failure, revelations, and judgment, Sam discovers the true identity behind The Company and learns the fate that may befall Brigos Glen . . . that is, unless he can stop it.
Once again, I've selected a book that caused me to branch out of my usual circle of reading and I experimented with a classic/allegory.
The Company is not written as an "end of the times" book nor does it explain end time prophecies as one might assume, but it does attempt to explain one God but a Father, one God but a Son and one God but a Spirit.
When I began reading this book, I had trouble getting into it. The first 20 pages were written more as a newspaper article, recording the events after that great meteor exploded into the planet. The dialogue beginning on page 21 helped move things along and got me interested. The book started of slow but towards the middle, the pace picked up and it began to intrigue me! Chuck Graham did a wonderful job writing this book. His writing is intelligent and proficient for sure.
If you are into the sci-fi genre, then you will enjoy read this book. I'd rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
