Day One

Former computer hacker turned journalist, John Hawke, sets out to start his work day like usual. He has a bit on his mind this one particular morning and a feeling he just can’t seem to shake. You see, he and his wife are going through a bit of a rough patch in their relationship and the distance between them is growing daily. Not to mention, their three-year-old son, Thomas, has autism and Robin is expecting their second child. She had serious complications in her first pregnancy and has already been put on medical restrictions early on with this second one. Let’s add to the issues that their next door neighbor is a crazy man who continually scares Robin and Thomas, so you have the perfect combination for high levels of stress for both Robin and John. But this one particular morning, things seem completely off. There’s a sour pit in his stomach and he doesn’t know why he’s feeling that way. That is, until he arrives at work and hell breaks loose. Bridges and tunnels have been destroyed, helicopters are falling out of the sky crashing and explosions are happening all over the place. New York City is under attack, but the even scarier part is the enemy is invisible. Who has set off these gruesome attacks? Does John survive long enough to make it back to his wife and son?

This was a fabulous book that I just couldn’t put down. Right from the start, Mr. Kenyon pulled me into his story and took me on the roller coaster ride of my life. I experienced so many emotions reading this action packed Sci-Fi story and I felt I was another character running around with John and the others who were fighting to stay alive. This is one story that pulls you in from the very beginning and keeps hold of you until the very last word you read. Numerous times I found myself holding my breath or having my heart pound in my chest from all the action going on. This is my first introduction into Mr. Kenyon’s writing style and if his other work is just as action packed as this one, I’m in for a real treat. Without a doubt, I highly recommend this novel and I eagerly look forward to reading more from this very talented author.

Book Blurb for Day One


In Nate Kenyon's Day One, scandal-plagued hacker journalist John Hawke is hot on the trail of the explosive story that might save his career. James Weller, the former CEO of giant technology company Eclipse, has founded a new start-up, and he’s agreed to let Hawke do a profile on him. Hawke knows something very big is in the works at Eclipse---and he wants to use the profile as a foot in the door to find out more.

After he arrives in Weller’s office in New York City, a seemingly normal day quickly turns into a nightmare as anything with an Internet connection begins to malfunction. Hawke receives a call from his frantic wife just before the phones go dead. Soon he and a small band of survivors are struggling for their very lives as they find themselves thrust into the middle of a war zone---with no obvious enemy in sight.

The bridges and tunnels have been destroyed. New York City is under attack from a deadly and brilliant enemy that can be anywhere and can occupy anything with a computer chip. Somehow Hawke must find a way back to his pregnant wife and young son. Their lives depend upon it . . . and so does the rest of the human race.
