Set in 2067, Captain Michael Dawn has been assigned an international troop for his next assignment. The next assignment is a deadly, top-secret mission, he and his team must scour the planet Xavier for the five ancient scrolls. Each of the scrolls are hidden deep in the territories that belong to five of the deadliest tribes in Xavier. As if this wasn’t enough for Captain Dawn to handle, one of his team members is the very attractive, Ashley Collins and he must decide whether he will risk his career in order to pursue a relationship with agent Collins.
From the start of the Prologue, this story entwines the reader in a fast-paced adventure. The Scrolls of Xavier gives readers a taste of what military life would be like on another planet. Though the story is gripping and intriguing, it is a very easy read. The ease of the writing makes it appear as a young adult book, but the graphic details and brutal scenes call for a more mature audience. There were a few diction errors, but they did not detract from the storyline.
I would recommend this book for fans of the Science Fiction genre, since it provides a unique twist on saving Earth.
