Bachelor Mission by Jes Drew


About the Book:


Name of book: The Bachelor Missions

Author: Jes Drew

Genre: Christian speculative spy fiction

Release Date: February 18, 2017

The good-guys, the bad-guys, and the wild card- it’s the ultimate game of cloak and dagger…

Kristian Clark, private eye, thought his days as a special agent were behind him, but when he’s drafted into action, he finds himself reunited with his old team- and painful memories of why they broke up in the first place. But as he plunges into mission after mission- from a ‘holy heist’ to babysitting a young hacker to going undercover in a cult- Kristian find that everything he tried to leave behind is coming back to haunt him with a vengeance, and then some. First there’s the mysterious woman who knows more about Kristian- and his past- than makes sense while using science fiction weapons that don’t make sense period. Then there are the shady powers-that-be who are responsible for drafting him back into this world to satisfy their own nefarious agendas. It’s all Kristian can do to keep from being pulled into their games as he tries to figure out who to trust and what to fight for, even as the trap put in place to destroy him is set with a ticking clock.
When did espionage get so complicated?


My Thoughts:

This was by far one of the most uniquely written books I have read in a long time, maybe ever.  Written from Kristian Clarke’s perspective, his external voice made me think of Sargeant Joe Friday from Dragnet, his internal voice was pleasantly funny and snarky.  This story is a mystery, and that is used in the strongest sense.  There is A LOT going on, and since I see it is Book One, I am relieved that there is more to come, first because I’m looking forward to more and second, because I see there are a lot of loose ends, and unanswered questions, which I hope are answered throughout the series.In the spiritual aspect, it’s really very good.  In the beginning, the leading man is questioning God and Christianity.  Then after a time span, we see him again and he is convinced of God, and Christianity and salvation through Jesus Christ.  Also, there are some great quotes, such as: “So it’s not so much that you don’t believe in God; it’s that you don’t WANT to believe in Him.”  Touche  “When bad things like that happen, that’s so that people like me can have a chance to be a man and do justice.  God likes to give us a chance to do that before He has to put on the cloak of vengeance and take care of things personally, either in this life or the next.”

If you are prone to difficulty with the idea of demonic spirits manifesting in some form, you may have an issue with a part of it. Also, with the idea of anyone commanding them, that’s something we should ask God to do, according to the Bible. And there is reference to dead bodies, so if your squeamish, just a fair warning, just “bleep” over it.  The book is too good to pass by because of these issues.

Great job, I’m looking forward to the next one.
I had the great privilege of receiving this book, for which I am providing an honest review.

Guest Post from Jes Drew

I began writing at a very young age. I don’t think I even started school yet when I came out with my first children’s titles. The Swan Princess and Flamingo Queen was followed by a sequel The Duck Prince and Unicorn King (because I thought it was unfair that only the mom and sister had to go through transformations), and Julian and Juliette had many reprints- all carefully printed and illustrated by myself before moving to their final destination: safekeeping in my mom’s possession.

Years later, I resumed my writing craft near the end of elementary school with two series of chapter books I wrote and then read aloud to my family. However, it was not until I watched Marvel’s Avengers that I found my true muse (Captain America, obviously). The story was so enthralling, I could do nothing but pick up the pen and compose my first published trilogy: The Ninja and Hunter Series published when I was sixteen. This was followed by the tree books of The Howling Twenties two years later.

But, no longer a ‘young adult’ I’ve moved on beyond that genre to the next age group: New Adult. That genre infamously known for its many vices and sins. However, we as Christians are called to “Take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5b), and a genre targeted toward twenty-somethings should be no exception.

So this is my first release in the New Adult genre. Kristian Clark might be a secret-agent-turned-private-investigator-turned-secret-agent again, but he still deals with the same problems all twenty-somethings face: adapting to a career, longing for a soul mate, and searching for deeper meaning in all the noise. With a little intrigue and cool gadgets on the side because, well, he is a secret-agent-turned-private-investigator-turned-secret-agent after all.
