Point of Impact

When Dallas Church ran full speed to the point of impact, his only goal was to help anyone he could. He did not know or care that being so close to the meteor would change him so drastically. In the year that followed, Dallas would be hailed as a hero, the rookie cop who risked everything to save others, then persecuted and outcast as a monster when the real effects of his exposure to the meteor became clear.

Fortunately, Dallas is recruited by an organization promising to use his newly evolved talents to provide security for others. As the team forms, Dallas and his new colleagues must learn to trust each other and to accept their diversity.

Dallas soon discovers his power is linked to a greater evil. As he sacrifices everything to save a child, he learns that these events, and he himself, are not what he had believed.

What Readers Are Saying

The reviews are in – people are clamoring for Point of Impact!

Point of Impact is an outstanding and enthralling debut into the world of Dallas Church. R.J. Riggs does an excellent job of weaving heroism and tragedy in a refreshing way. The characters are interesting, yet developed in a way that they feel real. One of the best books I have read in years. I look forward to reading more from this author.


Amazon Review

Offering an easy blend of genres, expect a story woven with seeming influences from fights with a Dungeons & Dragons flair, the comic excitement of Marvel, touches of horror reminding me of Dean Koontz, and the strategic development aligned with Tom Clancy-esque political thrillers.
