When Major David Allan’s C-5 jumbo jet goes down in the Iraqi desert in 2003, he is the only survivor. Three months later, David awakes from a coma at the Walter Reed Medical Center – his wife, Sherry, at his side. But nothing is how David remembers it; the hospital staff calls him “Lieutenant,” Sherry appears to be much younger, and every soldier television footage focuses on Desert Storm. Then he comes to the stark realization that he was back in the year 1991.With the years rewound, can David, as a military intelligence officer, be able to affect world events like Somalia in ‘93, Oklahoma City in ‘95, or New York on 9/11? Will he even dare to alter history—and if so, what will be the consequences? Find out in, Eternal Eye.
About the Author
AL M. Scott (1958-) is the son of a Baltimore police officer-turned-missionary jungle pilot. While growing up, he and his family traveled across the USA and South America for ten years while attending thirteen different schools. A retired Army veteran, he is the founder of PTSIO (Post Traumatic Stress In Order) and currently in the process of creating a publishing company for veterans and their families to share their stories. Scott's first book, (originally titled "Stone in a Sling: A Soldier's Journey"), is an autobiography about his twenty-five year Army career (1980-2005) that included four deployments to the Middle East and a Bronze Star Award for actions in Iraq. He has written a paranormal thriller, "Eternal Eye," about a soldier, Major David Allan, heading back to the USA from Balad, Iraq when the plane he is on is shot down. As the only survivor, he awakes from a three-month coma...in the year 1991. In this novella, Major Allan realizes that historic events have not altered in any way. Besides correctly predicting destruction from Hurricane Andrew in '92, and a failed operation in Somalia in '93, he devises a plan to prevent the Oklahoma City bombings in '95 and later, the 9/11 terror. Can he do so without implicating himself or setting the course of history into an unpredictable outcome? Scott has also has written the "Military Men & Women" series, beginning with "Love in the House of War," a romantic thriller set in war-torn Afghanistan, and the sequel, "Flame in Paradise (September 1, 2015 release)." Currently, Scott is writing the third in the series, "Girl with the Green Beret."
Though I found this book informative and interesting, it was sadly not for me. I tried to connect with the story and it's main character David--but for me, the pace was rather slow and I found it difficult to become absorbed into the storytelling. I do, however, feel that fans of military and war books, will enjoy this book. I recommended giving it a try. Though it wasn't for me, it doesn't mean its not for you. :)
