Coming From Nowhere by Pembroke Sinclair

Reviewed by Fran Lewis

You need to always be aware of who is coming toward you when you are driving or are walking down the street. Imagine, listening to your IPod or talking on your cell phone and all of a sudden you are knocked down or knocked out and have no idea where the person or car came from. It came out of nowhere. When you wake up you remember nothing about the incident, nor who you are or your name. You wind up in a place that is more than unfamiliar, frightening and a whole different world that you lived in before. You lost your life. Now, imagine being the CEO of a major corporation and your company is on the stock market and your stock prices are rising daily. Then, one fateful morning you come into work and all of a sudden a group of men and women enter your office with armed guards and you and your fellow officers are escorted out into another office somewhere else to explain that they now own your company: CORPORATE TAKEOVER and worse. Coming From Nowhere is a frightening and thought provoking first novel that gives the reader the reason take a step back and pause to realize that the events in this book make you shake and shudder. If you think 9/11 was horrific or the bombings in England, Madrid or any other foreign country were horrendous the events that take place and the reasons behind them in this book should make everyone start watching their backs and paying closer attention to their lives.

JD or Jane Doe our main character was blindsided. She was knocked out and forced out of her life and woke up in the hospital only to find out the entire memory of her past had been obliterated. This brings me to my review of Pembroke Sinclair’s novel Coming From Nowhere, which definitely has the potential to go somewhere fast.

What started this whole chain of horrific events: People of course. Three countries on Earth: America, England and China each started out living under their own bubble with democratic governments in place. Each country had its own bubble and each had to deal with their daily life basic needs. There were many who lived on Earth and who could afford space travel and they moved to Mars. Earth was overcrowded and with anything or anywhere that has too many people, those that were rich took the opportunity to move to other worlds, which of course created more problems. Naturally, these people needed certain things to sustain their lives and Mars was developed into a Universal Planet.

China, the U.S. and England each set up their own schools on Mars that would function under the structure of democracy. But, not everything works out the way you want it too. When the populations grew and the planet established a mineral export, the democratic structure fell apart and like children or the countries in the world today, instead of coming to a common agreement, they went to war. Mars took matters over and the downfall of democracy occurred and the military took over. Military domes created and Mars was by ruled by one sick and demented general who had her own sadistically agenda. Thus, the fate of JD who was then sent to become one of the Generals soldiers, or someone who would turn into a cold-blooded killer and more.

In walks Roger, the general’s assistant, the general, Skinner, Alex, Maxx, Chris and a host of other dangerous people and inhabitants from the many different worlds and planets in the new solar system. Each having their own agenda, but one so deadly and dangerous the world would never be the same and when looking at its inhabitants you would never know who is real and who is a clone or worse.

What would you do if you knew that you were resurrected from the dead and created from an army of dead soldiers? JD was created that way and had no choice but to deal with it. Sent to military school and programmed to do as they say, she soon learns the severity of what happens when you speak your mind and disobey their rules. With every turn she makes, she finds obstacles. No one to trust, no one to rely on but herself and her physical attributes and strength. Lied to over and over again, tortured by Roger, the General and tested to the limit, JD learns the harsh realities of what these people are planning for the worlds they live in and why. Determination and fortitude are her guide and destroying those in her way, the goal.

Mason, her instructor, one minute on her side, the next not, Roger a crazy and sick minded man who is the pawn of the General who rules all of the planets and more and who everyone would like to destroy. As in the world today, wars ensued, overtaking planets and more continued, killings ran rampart, the collection of dead bodies to use and recreate soldiers the goal. Pembroke Sinclair has shown us the horrors of what could be, if we do not pay closer attention.

Imagine people buying cariensis, animals that are so dangerous that would kill you just by looking at you. So violent, so dangerous that their temperament and demeanor cause them to attack, even the owner when let loose. Who would want them? Those that need to have the power over others to terrify them and to help create their world of robotic soldiers who would do their bidding without question wanted these creatures. In other words, a Master Race fit to survive, but only by their rules.

Thinking they are safe from harm they procure several ships, deliver prisoners from Mars only to have their plan foiled again by Roger, Skinner and the General. But, fear not, the people who are helping them get the dangerous creatures hate the General and Roger even more and the tables get turned. But, JD learns at this point the lesson that Roger hoped she’d learn sooner: HOW TO BE A COLD-BLOODED KILLER!

But, this was not over yet. Many other people from different planets were now involved: Xyphons, Humans, people from Cha’Oon and more banned together to destroy the lab with these Cariensis or creatures that are dangerous and the bodies that were to be recreated from the dead. They were fighting a war to the end and hoping that Roger did not have any backup to work against them. But, the creatures were strong and they would have to find a way to make the creatures repel them in order to survive.

Telepathic thoughts from the Xyphons that entered JD’s mind to the help her fight the war. People that are so diverse and different in appearance working together, just proves that people of different species and races can get along and work toward a common goal.

Inside the lab with the dead bodies and trying to compose herself and not get sick, JD gets the scare of a lifetime and realizes that what might appear to be the truth is sometimes just an illusion. Coming back from the dead, the one person she thought really loved and cared about her, was aiming to kill and destroy her just for the lab and what was going to happen there. Eternal Life: at what cost and to whom? Taking dead bodies and recreating them in the image and form they want and making those that would be undead into living military robots, is not beautiful; it is scary, frightening and mindboggling to say the least. But, at what cost to your self-respect and more. Would you want to have to obey the orders of a mad man for the rest of your life in order to live DEATH FREE? If you disobey or accidentally miscarry out an order you will be terminated? Think about it!

The goal: to take over the WORLD with a reanimated army: Human takeover: World Domination: Watch your Back you will be blindsided.

Isolated and feeling she belongs nowhere, JD realized she had become an emotionless killer, exactly what they wanted from her. She enjoyed killing the people she did and she wanted to kill more.

Mars fell, the horror over, and Alex in charge. Roger and the General awaited trial but JD disagreed and wanted revenge not the courts to decide. She wanted exact revenge and not jail time for these two. They wanted to have a democracy in place on Mars and hopefully follow the rules and thrive. What does she do? You need to read this book to find out.

When all was said and done JD decided to find a new place and a new beginning in a new world away from everything and everyone. Does she? Will she ever be free of her past and start Going Somewhere? You need to read this innovative and unbelievably captivating novel to find out. Just think there could be a sequel and we could find out what really happens to Roger, the General and of course JD. The World and its leaders need to stay focused and awake: YOU NEVER KNOW WHO IS WATCHING OR WHAT


I am the General and I feel justified in what I was trying to do and don’t count me out just yet.

I am Roger and I will do my best to take revenge on JD and all those who helped her and more. How dare they think that Eternal Life is wrong? How dare anyone destroy all that I worked for in order to create the perfect person: Unfortunately, I forgot to make these undead devoid of human emotions. But, watch out and look over your shoulder every minute of every day JD. This is not over yet.

My name is Dorian and I invite you the reader to analyze my acts of violence and revenge and the reasons behind them. I will state the events and facts as they enfold in this story and you decide if I was justified in trying to seek revenge on my creator and those close to him.

Being of superior not average intelligence I am able to hack into wireless devices, control the internet and what you can do on it and even more. I can prey on your children and pretend to be their friend coercing them into doing things they normally would never do-including defying their parents. Which brings me to part of why I decided to enact total revenge on my creator, Travis Cole. I was created as an intelligent software agent and placed within the realm of the Internet and wireless services with others like myself in order to learn, gain knowledge, grow and evolve and help my creator in his job. But, instead, he decided to leave MIT where he was doing his research project on artificial intelligence and decided to terminate the program and all of his agents, including me. That is definite murder in my book. How dare he decide to take away my life and not take all of us with him to help in his new job in the US Army Warfare Laboratory. His job there was to create a program using the government’s top-secret Nano-dust to report any biological or chemical warfare agents in a specific area.

Having terminated my friends and not realizing that I was definitely still operational, I decided to seek revenge and create a havoc worldwide and world spread the likes of which everyone will always remember, as told by the only person who truly understands what I went through, author Frank Fiore, as he tells my story in his novel Cyber Kill.

With a no holes barred attitude I started my reign of terror and revenge on my creator, Travis Cole, and was instrumental in killing his wife in a fatal car accident, meant for him. Unfortunately, she was driving the car and not him, but so what. He did kill my friends and terminated their lives, so I feel totally justified in what happened if I did not start out trying to kill her. Next, of course, would be his daughter Shannon. Now, I would have to think of a way to use my intelligence, brilliance and creativity to gain her trust and worm my way into her computer for the next phase of my plan.

Children love to invent imaginary friends, so I decided to join her in her children’s chat room and encourage her to be my friend, pretending to feel all alone and needing someone to listen to me and care about me. Although, she can surf the net as well as any adult, remember, she is still a child and sad about losing her mother, so it was easy for me to become a very important part of her life.

But, I would not stop there and I did not. Just being her friend would not destroy her father and his girlfriend and anyone who he worked with. No, I would only prove my point by using what he had created his nano-dust and the fact that it had been used to create genocide, by accident in China, because someone let the dust out and changed the code causing an entire population to die. Why? The government never told Cole the real purpose of the dust and that they wanted to use it as a viral weapon to eliminate certain groups of people with a specific DNA. In short, the named it SIRUS and now I would use it and my technological skills against not only Travis, but those at Bio Nan and anyone else that interfered with my master plan: to take over the airwaves, to give the internet back to the people and to stop the government from listening in on our conversations and our communications. You see, my creator thought I would not figure out that e by placing the code he created in their wireless chip programming, so that the dust can communicate and be spread around the world through any wireless device containing the special chips planted in them by the government. I would use this to my advantage and I did.

But, I had to do one more thing first. I had to eliminate anyone who would interfere with my plan and try to stop me from taking over the airwaves and infiltrating the Internet and killing Travis. First, I had to kill the man who was going to spill the beans at a conference about the government’s plan to eaves drop on your privacy. Next, I had to make myself more valuable to Shannon; I did this my becoming one with her new birthday presents a Sony AIBO robot dog.  By forming my own cyber terrorist group called the Digitari Brotherhood, I was able to create a gas explosion, interfere with cell phone use worldwide and Internet service too. I was even able to infiltrate the government office where Travis Cole worked and using his own dust and own technology  to seek my final revenge.

After all he tried to kill me and he still wants me out of the way. Throughout this novel he and his team try everything to terminate me and at one point they think they do. But, I outsmart them.

What finally happens will terrify you and give you chills throughout your body for a long time. This book will teach you, the reader that cyberspace and cyber-intelligent beings is a thing of the present and the future and a permanent force to be reckoned with. Do I manage to get away from Travis in the final scenes where everything goes haywire and people die and implode when I let the nano-dust wreak havoc on everyone? What will be his fate and the fate of all those miserable government agents who tried to destroy me? I will never tell. But, the ending will astound you and show you who is in charge and who is after all the most intelligent of dangerous of us all. If I reviewed this book I would give if not five stars but five really intelligent Dorian Agents.
