Dawn of Destiny is a sci-fi novel about alien invasion set in the future. Although this genre has been done countless times before, Lee Stephen brings a fresh look on what is expected from the men and women defending the earth against such impossible odds. Stephen keeps the reader on edge wondering if our new recruits have what it takes to make it to the next battle.
The aliens, although technologically superior and lethal, are at times made to look… well incompetent. Even our defenders seem at times to lack basic military tactical training. Nevertheless, such is the real world at times.
Although this book is the first in a series, it doesn't have a cliffhanger ending. Rather, it ends satisfactorily even though there are plot threads that will continue in the next book. I'm looking forward to Outlaw Trigger: Epic #2 to see what strategy these men will employ and why there are aliens that want to invade the Earth.
Lee Stephen has a good feel for when a twist in the story is required to keep the reader on edge. I recommend this book for those who enjoy a good sci-fi novel occasionally. However, for the experienced reader it may fall on familiar grounds too often.
This book is also available in audiobook format with full cast and cinematic sound effects. I will be posting my review of the audiobook on March 30. Look out for it.

Now a resident of Luling, Louisiana, Lee spends time every day delving into the world of Epic, the science-fiction series that has come to define him as a writer and producer. Alongside his wife, Lindsey, their son, Levi, and their dog, Jake, Lee has made it a mission to create a series that is unique in its genre—one unafraid to address the human condition while staying grounded in elements of faith.
In addition to writing, Lee works full-time for the Department of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness. He has also spent time as a church deacon, guitar hobbyist, and New Orleans Saints season ticket holder. He is a graduate of Louisiana College in Pineville.
