Hey everyone!  Today I have a review for Methuselah Project: S.O.S by Rick Barry!  I tried really, really hard to avoid the temptation of signing up for this tour because I was really busy, but I ended up caving -- and I'm super grateful I did, because I found a new series to follow!  This book is fantastic, and I'll get into my thoughts more after a little bit of information about the author and the book itself.  


Rick Barry is the author of Methuselah Project: S.O.S., The Methuselah Project, Gunner's Run, Kiriath's Quest, plus over 200 published articles and fiction stories. In addition to being a World War II buff, he has visited Eastern Europe over 50 times in connection with Christian ministries. He holds a degree in foreign languages and speaks Russian. Visit Rick at his website,, or at, or on Twitter (@WriterRickBarry).


Born in the final days of Nazi Germany, an underground organization is alive, growing, and manipulating events in our world today …

The survivor of a secret German experiment in 1943, Roger Greene possesses a unique physiology. To this day, his body remains youthful and heals quickly. In exchange for information about the mysterious Heritage Organization that Roger once escaped, the CIA has given him a new identity and pulled strings to get him into the modern U.S. Air Force.

Now, Roger’s main thrills are serving his country in an F-35 and spending time with Katherine, the love of his life. Suddenly, the CIA shows up and drops a bombshell—evidence that Sophie, the woman who Roger believed had died helping him escape, is alive. The Heritage Organization is holding her and others prisoner in an unknown location.

Honor-bound to rescue the woman who risked her life for him, Roger accepts temporary duties with the CIA. But just when the mission is already straining his relationship with Katherine, Roger becomes a murder suspect. A fugitive, he continues the mission to find Sophie alone. What he discovers lands this pilot deep inside a shadowy network intent on world domination.

Will Roger’s faith carry him through this quest—or will those tracking him succeed in snuffing out his long life once and for all?

A sensational standalone story, Rick Barry’s sequel to The Methuselah Project launches you into an unforgettable journey through danger, suspense, hope, and love—an experience that will keep you turning pages well into the night!



When the synopsis says this book will keep readers turning pages long into the night, it means it.  I was fascinated by the prose, the ease with which the plot developed (and thickened), and I had an absolute blast reading it.  If you're a fan of Marvel, you'll want to read this book.  It's an interesting and very original Christian twist on superhuman capabilities a-la Captain America (and then some; and more believable as well!)  The book was fast-paced and held my interest very easily.  I did stumble a little bit with reading one early chapter, but I think that's largely because this is the second book in a series and I hadn't read the first one yet! It was still pretty easy to follow.  Now that I've read this one, I'm definitely going to pick up the first book as well.  The way the story blended sci-fi with reality was flawless.  The plot was fast-paced through the entire novel, right to the very end. 

Overall, this book really made my nerdy heart happy and I'm glad I took the opportunity to read it!  I'm definitely looking forward to subsequent novels by Barry, hopefully in the Methuselah Project vein!  

What's your favorite Marvel character?  Do you enjoy WWII era fiction? (Or characters from the WWII era?)
