The stars just are lined up for the end of the world in "Misaligned"

Amazon Link
While some people were watching Discovery Channel documentaries about Mayan calendars and planets aligning, others were out saving the destruction of the world from two alien races while dodging the CIA and the Illuminati.

Little did we know as we were watching the clock count down to doomsday, an unlikely pair would show up to try and save the day.  Travis Carter, a computer engineer (aka - hacker), and Tori, a high level Spiritual Leader for the Illuminati, meet quite by accident.  Fortuitous for the entire human race, they get along well enough to kill bad guys instead of each other.

Now we have the good guys, the many bad guys, and countdown to destruction set, I don't want to give too much away to cause a spoiler.  However, the fact that I am still on this planet to be typing this should give you some kind of indication of how things turned out.


"Misaligned" by Rodney L. Carlson is a short book that tries to tackle a large plot.  The idea of the plot was good, but there were certain points in the book that I couldn't suspend my disbelief.  I realize that is a requirement when reading fiction, but when a member of your "team" vanishes for days and the other members just kind of shrug their shoulders and give each other language lessons - I had a hard time picturing that really being the reaction most would have.

The book had many chapters, but some were literally only one page long on my Kindle, and the next chapter dealt with the same characters, setting, and time line.  This gave this book a kind of "disjointed" feel.

Overall, the story was a good short read.  If you are looking for something that you can devour in a day that is going to entertain you, then this book might be something to consider.
