Book Review: Satellite (The Satellite Trilogy Part 1) by Lee Davidson
I received a free ebook copy to review.
Satellite (The Satellite Trilogy Part 1)
by Lee Davidson
Grant Bradley was never meant to survive cancer or live happily ever after with his fiancée, Tate. Before he was born, his destiny to become a guardian angel was decided by the life-planning Schedulers.
Despite having what his new peers deem as a great position in the afterlife, living in utopia with a merciless mentor and looking after strangers doesn’t change the way Grant feels about losing out on his life with Tate. Refusing to accept his destiny, he finds a way to visit his lost love. However, keeping their connection alive and, most importantly, secret, will end up costing Grant more than he could ever imagine.
Written in a style that appeals to young men and women alike, Satellite, The Satellite Trilogy, Part I has a broad likability that will reach any fans of the sci-fi, fantasy genre's recent outings. The 2012 ABNA calls this fantasy "captivating" and "an epic love story." Inspired by the idea that everything happens for a reason and that even the most tragic of deaths can be instrumental in forming the future of the living, this novel delivers surprising depth behind its charming exterior.

I am in love with Satellite and can't wait to read books 2 and 3! There's so much I love about this book. I love the idea of guardian angels, in this book they are called Satellites. I love the idea of everyone's life and death being decided by Scheduler's before you're even born. I love that Satellites help Tragedies, people who have had a tragedy in their life's, stay on their scheduled path. I love that each Satellite has their own unique personality. I love the characters! I love that Grant is so in love with Tate he refuses to let her go even though he is dead and she is still living. The story started off slow for me and I wasn't sure I would like it but as I kept reading I fell more and more in love with the story. Some things were pretty predictable but there were other things that completely surprised me. I loved it, 5 star book!

About the author:
Lee lives in Missouri with her husband, three sons, a neurotic puppy, and an alley cat. She received a BFA with a Graphic Design emphasis from Lindenwood University. Her on-the-clock time is spent as the designer for one of Missouri's top billboard companies and also as a "night and weekend" abstract painter. Her poetry has been incorporated in her freelance art and displayed and sold in local galleries.
Lee's passion for creative writing is as strong as her passion for art. The idea for Satellite came around the time of her third son and was equally unexpected. In a testosterone filled household, Lee needed an outlet to maintain her sanity that required less clean up than painting. Writing The Satellite Trilogy became the outlet she needed. Her desire to create interesting, relatable characters grows stronger everyday.
Satellite, Lee's first novel, was selected as a quarter-finalist in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest.
