A Very Human Mission is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Joel Weddington. This conceptual story takes place on Earth when a group of beings from another world wants to help this less advanced planet to succeed. In doing so, they bring Numan to Earth, but without the memories of his true heritage or mission. Growing up as baby Bradley in a poverty-stricken and abuse-riddled life, it is only on his journey to find a soulmate that our hero begins to realize there may be more in his future than he originally had planned.

Author Joel Weddington has crafted a very enjoyable science fiction work which will absolutely tick all of the boxes for fans of this niche of alien-human drama. I felt that Bradley/Numan was a very well developed central figure, with a believable sense of naivety, but also a great fighting spirit because of the tremendous trauma in his early life. This makes him a strong protagonist who is easy to root for and become inspired by, which gets readers really invested in his mission and true identity as the story progresses. I also found that the dialogue was particularly compelling, especially in the exposition of the concepts of the alien intentions, and of the enigmatic dimensional mentor who appears in the tale as a guide. Overall, I would certainly recommend A Very Human Mission for fans of dynamic and engaging science fiction adventure with well rounded and likable heroes.
