ArcPoint Traveller by John Wozniak is a brilliant story set against the vivid backdrop of a desert world two centuries from now. After the world has suffered the worst of apocalyptic changes, a small group of people tries to find solace in the heart of the Mojave Desert, a place secure from the evil plaguing the world. The huge question is: Can they create everything they want? In a community where rules are vital to the survival of its inhabitants, a young boy has to go beyond the limits to find love. Will he be able to succeed in escaping the guards, and what about the evil that lurks in the outside world?

ArcPoint Traveller is Book One in a series, a seductively powerful opening to a series that will be enjoyed by many readers. John Wozniak starts the story with moving descriptions, and readers are immediately introduced to one of the most compelling characters in the story, Arcon. With skill and ingenuity, the author weaves a variety of themes into this breathtaking story, including love, religion, faith, and the ultimate power of community. The language is very beautiful and the author uses it to paint a landscape that is as symbolic as it is meaningful. The plot is strong, laced with many surprises. The shifts in plot lines and the backstory are skillfully used to create suspense and longing for more in readers. Arcon is my favorite character, solid, with a daring will and an unstoppable sense of adventure. Wozniak is one of those writers to watch closely; his work will hugely entertain and instruct readers.

Arcon’s great-grandfather decides it’s time to follow God’s plan and make a different life for himself, his family, and his friends as well. They create their own world where they can follow their own way of life in a sacred place. But Arcon doesn’t want to stay in this place and is determined to travel through the forbidden lands until he can find Elaina, the girl he’s never met but somehow knows is going to be the key to everything. Learning about the beginning of his world, however, is the only way to truly understand what’s happening now and just what it means for the future, for Arcon, Elaina, and everyone else in both of their worlds in ArcPoint Traveller.

ArcPoint Traveller by John Wozniak is definitely interesting, whether you’re a religious person or not. It has a lot of basis in understanding God and following His plan, but it’s also about following your own heart, and the story is full of adventure. There’s always a lot going on and the characters are interesting to follow. You find yourself wanting to know even more about them at every turn. The writing was great and really kept you in the story. You want them to succeed, to come together, and to finally accomplish everything that they are working towards - not to mention being drawn in by the story of how it all comes together, leading Arcon on the biggest adventure he’s ever tried to undertake.

ArcPoint Traveller (Book One) by John Wozniak is a well written Christian fiction with a unique story line, set mainly in the Mojave desert during the 23rd century. The story follows Arcon, a member of a community of people who have been living in seclusion since the early 21st century, as he tries to escape the community and find love. The other main character of the story is Elaina, a woman who helps rescue lost travelers and who assists Arcon in his escape attempt. The story is broken up with flashbacks to the 21st century when the facility and the community were set up, as well as the reasons behind the creation of the community. ArcPoint Traveller by John Wozniak would be of interest to those who enjoy love stories, dangerous escapes, and Christian literature.

Move over Tarzan - there is a new tree climber in the jungle! Arcon was by far my favorite character; he had this naïve nature and a determined belief that there is more in the world for him than a community with a declining population. ArcPoint Traveller switches between multiple character perspectives to allow the reader to learn how the story is progressing for each character. John Wozniak includes the perspectives of the main characters, Arcon and Elaina, as well as the perspectives of some characters from the 21st century (flashbacks). The way that John Wozniak wrote about the community made it truly seem like its own ideal world in the past, and like a beautiful prison during the present day. At the end of the book I was left with a sense of excitement that there will be a further installment!
