A Messiahs Battle For The Human Realm is a young adult book written by an author named Roberto Torres Rivera.
I’m not quite sure what year the book is meant to take place in, but it’s clear that the people Rivera writes about are technologically advanced. A Messiahs Battle For The Human Realm is about exactly what it sounds like, a battle for the human realm and a fight for consciousness. The main character is a guy named John Christopher who seemingly has a happy life and a great family at the beginning. However, things change pretty abruptly when he is thrown into a world that is pretty much the polar opposite of his. He finds a mysterious land and it opens his eyes to what’s really going on in the world at the moment, things that no one else knows or notices. The novel is really about him coming to terms with the new knowledge he has found and preparing for the battle that is yet to come. He basically has to relearn everything he once knew. Long story short, he has to step up and be the change the people need, and help take down the controllers. He and a select group of people team up to battle these controllers and take back the conscious thinking that they have taken away. It’s worth noting that while having to manage all of this, he also has to deal with the fact that his dad died in a mysterious freak accident. While reading these pages, you get to watch as his world is slowly turned upside down and everything he once knew is forced to change.
I genuinely really enjoyed reading this book and actually read it all in one day. Once I started, I was determined to keep reading and to go along on the journey that the author has so greatly written. I found it completely entertaining, and packed full of both entertaining events and also a lot of factual information. I think it’s great because it takes something that we have, the technology, and expands on it. It really does make you think about what the world would be like if we were as advanced as the governors from the mysterious land. It’s a lot to rest upon John’s shoulders as he is truly responsible for a huge mission, an end goal per se, that is so much bigger than just him or the governors. Safe to say, John’s life will never be the same.
Like I stated before, the book definitely entices the reader into wanting to know more as it goes along. It is somewhat shorter than most novels that I’m used too. This isn’t a bad thing though as it makes it a great read for any free day. This book seems as though it would appeal to people who are interested in scientific or technical findings. It could also appeal to anyone who just finds it super interesting to imagine what the world would be like if we were way more advanced.
It is, however, a lot to process, so it really helped me to take a couple breaks throughout reading it so that I could process everything. The author provides a lot of technical and scientific information. This is great because it makes it the world seem even more realistic. It could be a slight problem for anyone who may have trouble understanding all of the facts that are provided. Also, there are a lot of characters introduced at one point. This may prove slightly tricky at first because the reader kind of has to keep track of who is who. These downsides don’t really have to be considered a downside though.
Overall, this is a wonderful book and it is extremely well written. I would rate it 4 out of 4 stars, as I think many others would love this book if they gave it a chance. It provides an extremely entertaining tale and provides you with a world that you may even wish you could be a part of. Considering the ending of the book, it appears this is the first in the series. I’m unaware of how many the author has written or intends to write, but I plan on reading the second book. I’m super curious what will happen in the second book and just have to know what’s going to happen next with John Christopher.
