I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Lauren is entrenched in the world of the ENL working to finish the microprocessor, saving Roxal and her planet, and defeating the PL. Having made the decision to walk away from her life and join ENL, Lauren has another opportunity to hook up with her ex on her own terms; well, once ENL approves it anyway.
With Lauren’s brief moments of independence, PL kidnaps her and from there it’s a fight that losing is fatal not only for Lauren but for planets Earth and Trebor.
Well written, Sharolyn Brown proves once again that her imagination and ability to captivate her audience is commanding. Building a strong plot line with details about characters and their roles can be daunting at times, but Brown is very proficient at storytelling making her clever with plot twists and turns, along with building strong connections with each character. Brown is a definite powerful and consummate story teller!
The story moved at a fast pace with ‘edge of your seat action’ throughout most of the book. There are twists totally unexpected!
I could not put this book down once I started reading it. I cannot wait to see where Brown takes her readers in book three! Excellent series!

Future World Rocks by Terry Tumbler was submitted to WordsAPlenty for an honest review.
Future Worlds by Terry Tumbler is a thrilling light-hearted read that will have you laughing. Take two scientists from a Nazi research lab who are hi-jacking a pod to escape the boredom of their research facility only to discover they are time traveling! They hook up with aliens with the ulterior motive of blending with the human race; then there are the MIB’s (Men in Black) who are faced with regulating the presence of alien life forms. There is a bit of science fiction and thriller/mystery involved as we sort through the good from the bad aliens.
Tumbler is a wildly imaginative writer who has the ability to engage readers with his quick wit and a sarcastic tongue that is endearing and hilarious. A science fiction space opera for all ages, Tumbler weaves a fantastic story with strong character development and plotlines. His world has something for everyone – mystery, science fiction, romance, comedy, and more. Tumbler keeps everything clear and focused, although there are a lot of characters he is detailed and vivid in his imagery that mixing them up is nearly impossible! The book is captivating!
WordsAPlenty highly recommends this book by Terry Tumbler as a must read! Guaranteed to make your day better.

I was given a copy of The Transmigrant by Kristi Saare Duarte in exchange for an honest review.
After a few pages, Duarte made me stop and think about everything I knew about Jesus and challenge it with: what if Jesus was just an ordinary, down-to-earth boy on a religious quest?
Duarte has taken the story of Jesus and woven it into a captivating story of Yeshua who leaves his home and future as a carpenter, setting out to cross the strict caste laws and become a rabbi. His love of God and his passion to share the Word of God is present in his day to day travels and struggles to find the inner peace and presence of mind that others before him had found – Lord Buddha, Krishna and the White Brahmins. Yeshua wants only to teach the word of a loving God but is challenged to wait patiently and teach only when he is deemed worthy and learns to only teach to those “more appropriate.” Yeshua breaks with tradition and begins teaching peasants and farmers and women.
The story of Yeshua mirrors the life of Jesus closely but with significant changes that are likely closer to reality than not; Duarte invites you to see the story of Jesus in a different light. Duarte’s telling of the story of Yeshua flows smoothly, weaving naturally in with stories from the Bible and history and reported experiences of Jesus. Duarte snags the imagination of her audience and challenges them. She encourages questions and further examination of one’s beliefs.
The life of Jesus is widely known but with her research of ancient scriptures and reported new findings by others, Duarte creates another version that could have happened. One that leaves room for thought.
Duarte’s writing style and vivid use of imagery captured me and held my attention. Her use of inner dialog allows the reader to experience the same questions and emotions as Yeshua. The reader cannot help but become enmeshed in his struggles and ultimate sacrifice. Her writing is calming and subtle – it is not forceful nor over powering. She simply offers a different scenario.
WordsAPlenty highly recommends this book with a five-star review; Duarte is an accomplished writer who questions and challenges the norm with a passion for other possibilities.
