Good Intentions Book Review

“GOOD INTENTIONS” by D.N. Simmons is the first book in the “Dead War Series”. It is a fast paced, end of the world\”opps we screwed up scenario”. SciTech Labs was hired by the government to create a special serum that would not only cure every disease known to man, but also heal broken bones within seconds. This serum would create a super soldier. But the problem is that the lab was given 6 months to create the serum and the government was tight-lipped about its origin and base elements. As time was running out, the SciTech scientists think they may have found what they needed to complete the assignment, but something went wrong, way wrong and now something that was meant to help, just might put the humans race into extinction. Can the sole survivor of the SciTech incident help find a cure? And now instead of flesh eating zombies against the US Military, we add in vampires? Somebody has to find a way of saving the Human Race!

This was a fast-paced story about how sometimes good intentions just are not enough. Playing God had its consequences and at what price. The main characters (the ones who actually survive the epidemic) are in a race against time to help right their wrong before it becomes a global epidemic. It seems that nothing can stop the maddness. They need to find a cure or a way of containing the outbreak before all of humanity becomes extinct.

This was a great read (only around 180 pages). I enjoyed this so much that I passed this on to my 15 year-old son to read for an assignment in his English class. My only complaint (but it’s a good one) is that it ended so abruptly. Now I will be on pins and needles waiting for book #2 called “Desperate Times”. I hope it comes out soon, because this book was too good to put down and I didn’t want it to end.


by DN Simmons

SciTech Labs was handsomely commissioned by the United States Military to design a revolutionary serum that would create the ultimate soldier. If successful, the soldier would have an increase in endurance, strength, awareness and overall speed. They would become the true super soldier. That’s if everything went according to plan.

SciTech put its best scientists on the project and gave them a time limit to complete the job or else. With the pressure on and the stakes high, Vincent Masterson and his team put everything they had into the project. Everything was looking hopeful until an experiment went horribly wrong. The scientists mutated their specimen’s DNA, turning it into something monstrous. Now, life as we know it will never be the same.

As it stands, the only thing that can save the human race is one of the two things they should be running from.

Can the human race survive being caught in a bloody war between two vicious predators?
