The Silver Sphere By Michael Dadich Review

The Silver Sphere

By Michael Dadich

★★★★★

Shelby Pardow doesn’t have the easiest life, her father is abusive and her mother is long gone. Shelby uses the library as her escape, one day she is at one of the computer when she gets an incoming massage that reads: You Are Needed. She is soon transported to Azimuth where it turns out she is Kin to one of the six Aulic Assembly members who are imprisoned by an evil warlord. Shelby with the help of the other Kin will soon be thrust head first into a battle to stop Malefic once and for all.

The Silver Sphere

This is one of those novels that I just could not put down. From the beginning Michael Dadich displays a phenomenal ability to involve the reader into the storyline with an emotional entrance into the novel as Shelby’s father is tormenting her through to the transformation she undergoes as the story progresses. Not only does the author pull you in emotionally but he also creates some highly unique creatures as well as the setting of the book making each scene more fascinating than the next. I certainly had a lot of fun reviewing this book and I look forward to seeing what Michael Dadich will come up with next.

The Wedding Dress  (The Survivors Club Book One)

Ellie Keaton has just made my “Evil Evil Authors” list. Despite going into the novel with my “tough face” on and determined to read this short story without crying, I did not succeed. I made it through most of it till I hit the end and she did me in. This was a beautiful story of the love and loss that surrounds 9/11. Ellie Keaton managed to create a stunning story in a few short pages that will surely move you, if not you may want to visit a doctor. In the end this is one of those stories that are worth the short yet entertaining read. Not only is the story amazing but the author also donates 15% of the proceeds from this short story to Tuesdayschildren.org which helps children who were affected by 9/11.

Erroneous Talibani By Richard Asner Review

Erroneous Talibani

By Richard Asner

Greg Damet was recently recruited by the CIA, all he knows is that he must learn Farsi and learn some interrogation techniques. While he is in training he meets Jacquie and the two soon hit it off. On his first mission to Afghanistan Greg’s plane is shot down, leading him into a struggle just to survive.

In the footsteps of all great spy novels this book has it all, romance, intrigue, espionage, and tons of action. Greg Damet isn’t your usual spy, who is perfect in every way possible, he is much more relatable so in the end you can imagine yourself right by his side as he is beaten and he determinedly works his way back to the United States. Each moment you are captured in this struggle and have your fingers crossed that he will succeed. Richard Asner has turned out to be a phenomenal author not only bringing to life fascinating characters but also creating scenes that will surely keep you entertained. The only thing I have to point out about this book is that it is a bit dated; I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when Osama Bin Laden was brought into the picture. But then this just makes the novel so much more relatable because you know precisely who the author is talking about.

Robopocalypse By Daniel H. Wilson Review

Robopocalypse

By Daniel H. Wilson

This is the account of the Robot War, after a soldier comes across a “ROB” with the events leading up to and during the war stored within its memory. It started off slowly a few incidents here and there of robots acting oddly but this was only the beginning of what the robots are capable of as soon they begin to make their own concentration camps for humans, though humans still fight back they seem to be on the losing end. But what “Rob” never counted on was the fact that humans created robots.

Robopocalypse

My mother is always telling me “I brought you into this world, I can take you right back out.” Usually when I have done something to really drive her crazy, though I know this is a hollow threat, this novel reminds me of that saying. This is a thoroughly action packed novel and the author truly makes the robots creepier and creepier as the story goes along. In the end you are rooting for the robots to get their butts kicked. The story I loved the most was between Takeo Nomura and his robot, it is a beautiful story yet sad in the beginning as his coworkers played an evil trick on him, it almost made me cry. This is only the tip of the book there is no way I could do this novel justice with its many intertwining stories, it is first and foremost a war and that in itself is worth reading but the author brings to life a future world and characters who reside there that is absolutely fascinating.

Something Borrowed By Emily Griffin Review

Something Borrowed

By Emily Griffin

Rachel has spent her entire life catering to Darcy’s needs, and always coming in second to the high strung and gorgeous Darcy. Then on Rachel’s thirtieth birthday she drinks a bit too much and finds herself in bed with Darcy’s fiancé. Rachel knows it is wrong but soon she can’t help the feelings that have grown inside of her as she realizes she loves Dex.

 

For the first time someone has taken the “other woman’s” side and though it may be an interesting perspective she is still the other woman, and with that comes the stigma of “she is such an idiot.” Emily Griffin manages to create such an unlikable character in Darcy you can’t help but side with Rachel no matter how hard you try, and just when you start to sympathize with Darcy and think Rachel is indeed a bad person she pulls something out of her sleeve that will make you rethink taking Darcy’s side to begin with. This wasn’t a bad book, it was certainly well written, I think this is one of those books that will be torn between sections you will either love it or hate it no middle ground.
