The Coming is a sci-fi thriller written by author Dan Coffman. Shane Reid is a UFO skeptic and former professor at Northwestern University whose wife's and child's deaths lead him to early retirement and becoming a full-time UFO investigator. When UFO-logist Brad Shelton brings a coded message to Shane, potentially containing extraterrestrial information, Shane gets himself involved in a wild goose chase alongside a radical religious group and Drake Calder, head of the Alien Technologies Project at the NSA. Additionally, an unforeseen threat is about to destroy the earth and obliterate every single living being on the planet. Shane must now join forces with the NSA cryptography analyst Phoebe Brahman and do everything he can to prevent the catastrophe and save the human race from annihilation.
The Coming is a thought-provoking novel with an engaging plot that grabs your attention from the get-go and never lets it waver. Author Dan Coffman uses actual historical facts that blend seamlessly into the narrative, creating a mesmerizing experience for the reader. The plot moves at a blistering pace, and the characters have well thought out arcs. I especially enjoyed Shane and Phoebe's relationship. The scenes between the two of them and their interactions were my favorite portions of the book. I was also impressed by the well-researched use of historical facts by Coffman, as well as his ability to present a subtle and nuanced way to showcase the points of view of both sides of the UFO conspiracy theories. Overall, The Coming was a rewarding reading experience for me, and I would recommend it to sci-fi lovers.
