A conspiracy theorist's dream 19 Sept. 2008
By Ravenskya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Conspirator's Odyssey - A.K. Kuykendall

The government is evil, they are sneaky, they are hiding things and we had all better beware. Starting in the future, and then leaping back and forth through the past, we follow Kalista Flaker, a special Ops soldier who has risen in rank due to her ferocious demeanor and obsessive nature. When she and her team are deliberately sent on a suicide mission, Kalista begins to dig into the nature of the government beast that has been controlling her for all of those years, and uncovers a disturbing truth. Determined to bring down the system and expose the lies, she makes it her mission to obtain proof of the vast conspiracy.

Kuykendall has a very distinct voice and an excellent writing style. For conspiracy theorists that border on obsessive, this book will be a goldmine. Beginning with the Area 51 cover up, to the Bay of Pigs, to the tragedy of 9/11, it almost feels as though the author was determined to cover every conspiracy known to man. The author has done their historical research, and much of this book does read as though you are in a history class, giving you almost too much background on events like the Bay of Pigs, or the History of different military groups. But the author weaves his own take on the events into the tale, giving the "truth behind the conspiracy" that he has invented, some times they are intriguing, other times they seem to go a bit overboard.

The opening of the book is a bit muddled in that we leap around in time so much that if you don't carefully read the dates at the top of the chapters, it will be easy to find yourself perplexed. When you get past the initial history lesson, and into the story of Kalista and her team, the book really gets moving. I flew through the middle of the book, which reads like a military espionage tale. I was a very happy reader until about the last 30 pages of the book, when the tale went a bit sideways in my mind. Truly, the Sci-fi aspect had been there from the beginning, we are reading about an alternate reality... the government has created a serum from alien DNA to create super soldiers... I bought it all, but when we came to the end my suspension of disbelief wouldn't stretch that far. I don't want to spoil it, but it seemed almost as if it was a throwaway ending that dumped way too many new conspiracies and sci-fi aspects on the reader out of nowhere.

Now I'm not saying that it's a bad ending, it just wasn't to my taste. I can probably name a handful of people who will absolutely love the ending of this book. Also the book leaves the ending open enough to imply that this may be the beginning of a series, following Kalista and her brother in their attempts to save mankind from ultimate destruction. I would be interested in reading additional entries in this series, the author's writing style is very fluid, and apart from a few lines that irked me this is a very well written book (on of my biggest pet peeves in reading is when siblings address each other as "Brother" or "Sister", I've never in my life heard anyone calling their sibling that).

Final summary: Though I would not recommend this book across the board, I would recommend it to the military/sci-fi crew and to the fans of conspiracy theories. If this becomes a series I can see this book developing a small but rabid fanbase.

Conspiracy Theory 12 Sept. 2011
By hardymeagan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I must say, this was NOT my type of book. While it was well written and intriguing, I just can't get into the whole "conspiracy theory" idea. At times, the book seemed hard to follow as their are so many things that have happened in the world I kept getting events and dates confused. For anyone that likes history or alternative answers to commonly asked questions, this is the book for you! I, personally, just couldn't get into it but that doesn't mean that people who enjoy this type of book won't love it because, like I said, it is very well written.

I gave it 3 stars not necessarily because I liked the book personally but because it was well written and interesting.
Conspiracy Theorists Dream 24 Sept. 2013
By Tafa Falaah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Conspirator's Odyssey: The Evolution of the Patron Saint was easy to follow, suspenseful, sci-fi, a little conspiracy, and historically accurate to what is going on. I now understand totally why people, when writing, make their stories character-driven, but I prefer all meat and always look for the truth hidden inside of everything. The perfect stories for me are the ones where everything is believable and nothing is made to feel outside the realm of possibility. I felt most of the story followed these guidelines. I'm very interested to see how the story is going to unfold on all the levels to bring it to the source." --Tafa Falaah
Conspiracy and Adventure with the element of Sci-fi. 30 Dec. 2013
By Book Readers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Book Readers Review
The plot of Conspirator’s Odyssey takes the reader through many eras’ of U.S.A history, conspiracy theories, military, sci-fi, and a little romance. This is an interesting story for those who love conspiracy. The author has obviously done his research into the historical events that are portrayed. He has added his own ideas to the conspiracy’s which could be believable for a few and somewhat ‘far-fetched’ for others. The storyline is complex and detailed, if not a bit confusing at the start. There is a great deal of moving from present to past. If you are not careful and take note of the dates heading the chapters, may easily loose the thread. Interestingly, the main character is a woman special Ops soldier, Kalista Flaker. She and her team are sent on a suicide mission by the government. She becomes obsessed with attempting to find out what is behind the government’s decision. Kalista uncovers disturbing events past and present.

None 13 Oct. 2013
By Sara Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Conspirator's Odyssy begins with a history lesson. The events of Roswell, NM and into Vietnam and JFK's assassination are well documented in this proposed theory of how and why these events helped forge the US as the premier superpower in the world.

What follows can best be described as conspiracy theory meets science fiction. Asking the reader to suspend belief beyond the usual conspiracy theory, the subject matter was well researched and the story well written.

The "present day" storyline was a bit more farfetched, but no less enjoyable. I enjoyed meeting the characters and truly look forward to investigating further with this author.
