REVIEW OF THE FIRST DEGREE BY DAVID WAYNE HILLERY
In The First Degree, Demetrius Adrien, a normal suburban father and husband, becomes a time and space-traveling hero when he is coerced into a dangerous mission by a mysterious race known as the Friendlanders. As Demetrius learns about the nature of humanity and the rest of the universe through intergalactic battles and martial arts, we also see how important the forces of God and family are in driving our lives.
About the Author-
The First Degree is the first published book by David Wayne Hillery, a structural engineer and bridge inspector in Texas. He holds a fourth-degree black belt in Taekwon-Do, which he has been studying since 1997, and enjoys Bible study.
I felt the book was bizarre but quite good. There were many unusual characters that kept me engaged. I especially liked Monty, the talking and flying Camry, who assisted Demetrius. At first I was unsure of what the title had to do with the plot of the story but halfway through I figured it out. So if you like a different type of Sci-Fi story this is the book for you.
