I was a little confused with the title itself. The first thing that popped out of my mind was the thing placed in orbit round the Earth collecting information. LOL! I’m not a fan of sci-fi or fantasy movie or novel but I find Lee Davidson’s The Satellite Trilogy, Part I, was amazing with a provoking storyline about Grant Bradley who died due to cancer. He has been chosen to become a Satellite whose job to watch over people experiencing tragedy in their life, and to help them getting back on track. The job of a Satellite is the equivalent to a guardian angel. This book is full of adventure as Grant struggles with his life as a Satellite.
I received this complimentary copy in order to review it. I feel that the writing style is quite acceptable, and easy to understand. The character may be a stubborn, and rule breaker person but I must say that he’s also a man with ardour. This is just the first book in this trilogy, and I am in love with the characters and storyline so far.
Frankly speaking, the storyline is more than a typical guardian angel as it involves the stages of being a Satellite, and Progression. I find myself reading dialogues as it doesn’t have paragraphs with full descriptions.
Overall, the book is good enough, and I enjoyed reading it though I find myself a bit blurred as I couldn’t imagine what’s the color of Grant’s shirt. Did he wear white robe as a Satellite?

Grant Bradley has just one little thing standing in the way of his happiness: Death.
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.
