(3.7/5 Stars) Arklight: Operation Nightfall is an exhilarating, meticulously researched collision between the past and present. I still find myself stunned by how fast Myrick researched, wrote, and published this epic military/historical fiction novel(less than one year). The unique way that spiritual themes of faith and purpose are presented in this story make for an interesting and meaningful connection for the reader to experience. Though the book suffered from a few pacing issues and the occ ...more

Wow. This book blew me away.

It's been a long time since I've read a really, really good book, but this one definitely grabbed me. I love strong Christian novels, and this one is fantastic. With elements of classics like those by Dan Brown, mixed with the ever-popular Knights Templar legends, there wasn't much of a chance of me disliking this story.

Each chapter started with a scripture, guiding the reader in a clever way, eluding to what was coming

They say to not judge a book by its cover, but I initially became interested in reading “Arklight: Operation Nightfall” because the cover art looked brilliant. Happily, the story underneath the cover was brilliant too.

Told from third person perspective from the point of view of several different characters, “Arklight” takes place in both 2016 and 1943. In 2016, we meet Arklight’s covert Spear Team on a mission to capture a high-profile terrorist. In 1943, we’re introduced to an analogous militar

Arklight: Operation Nightfall. I saw this book being promoted by Booktasters on Twitter. The site connected me with the author and he was kind enough to give me a free PDF copy of his book.

I have been reading wayyy too many YA Lit. I wanted OUT (at least for a while) of the love triangles and lovey-dovey relationship themes that YA almost always falls into. I wanted something gripping, thought provoking and with cool and believable fight scenes. I I got all of that when reading Arklight: Operat

I have to say, when I started Arklight, I was a little overwhelmed. I grew up in a military family so the terminology and persona of the characters were familiar, but the plot surprised me. The author is a former Marine, so you know he knows his stuff! That's one thing I enjoyed, an actual service member writing a fictional novel. 

The characters development throughout the novel was fast but not too overwhelming. Each character had his own strengths, which is shown in excellent detail. You have J

This is a book that if you're interested in literature in War, you will find it that you can't keep the book down. Myrick has written a thriller. A perfect companion if you're travelling on a train or a long distance flight. I literally read through the book not minding all the distractions around.

The best part about this book is the magical intertwining of the present, the past and the future. This book heavily relies on Christian mythology developing in parallel with the storyline which will d

Excellent writing.

I'm not usually a fan of historical fiction, but this story kept me wanting more. The collision of present with past was so well written. I can't stand the wait for the next book.

To everything there must be a balance, to the forces of evil, there must rise a counterforce of good. The plans for an ultimate weapon have been uncovered, and there are those who drive for its completion, drive for a world of scientific supremacy and destroy all would dare obstruct, challenge, or stand against them. They are the dark, and Arklight is a force for God, defending the light. Rescuing the brilliant mathematician Professor Amaldi was just the beginning, coding and hidden messages in ...more

I am thankful to any who put pen to paper and write a book, a true story.

I could tell the effort the author took in writing this work, to me It felt like a Tom Clancy knock off with a bit of faith tossed in, if you the reader is into that idea great sometimes I am as well, I wish the author the best of luck with his books, He has one thing going for him he is writing

J.M. Myrick has a talent for description and well-constructed plot. Crafting a gripping action scene is a difficult task, but Operation Nightfall does it well.

The content is quite good but the writing style is quite mechanical.. I enjoyed the last part of the story but first part was quite slow..

Books, like movies are not many alike. Depending on the genre you may like it or not.
Still, both of them require quite a lot of work to put together.
Writing a book is not an easy task and not many have what it takes to do it.
J.M.Myrick has an interesting story to tell, I cannot deny that, and I can see it put together on the big screen.
For action movie fans it is a treat. But for a book, it needs a little more than just action.
The writing style feels like a police report, especially at the begin

Good writing with lots of action. .A bit heavy on the religious content for my likes, but an enjoyable read to be sure.
