OMA - ONE MAN ARMY by Daniel J. Neumann

Llumina Press
Genre: Science Fiction
Rating: Very Good
ISBN: 1595264035, $10.95, 124 pp.

Well, what do we have here?. . . the product of a dynamically creative mind–Daniel Neumann’s–and I quote from the back cover:

"Growing up in the 31st century, Jack, Jennifer, Kevin, Geoffrey, and Harold have never know peace. A thirty-year war has so engulfed their lives, the very meaning of their existence is to be a well-trained weapon.

"With nearly infinite numbers, the Surculus threaten to annihilate the newly Unified Earth. The Celestial Guard deploys its latest weapon: the poweful One Man Army suit, of Project OMAHA.

"Through the eyes of five young soldiers, learn the meaning of the acronym. Face greed, deceit, and unexplainable events. Then discover why war is hell."

As a new, young writer, Daniel has considerable potential to be an extremely good writer . . . if he continues to hone his skills. He has a solid grasp on the basic fundamentals and a flare for creativity. (Daniel, pick up a copy of Stephen King’s On Writing - A Memoir of the Craft . . . you’ll love it!)

OMA - One Man Army is a good story and if you enjoy science fiction, I certainly can recommend it. Daniel Neumann has many interests and began writing in the 7th grade–short stories and movies. For his first published novel, I say . . . well done and keep writing!
