Review: The Adventures of JoJo Smith

Blurb

25453921This is a light-hearted and amusing fantasy about a young man who is accidentally transported to an alien world. It is a medieval world and the magician who pulled him from his own was only practicing! Jojo is frightened out of his wits and finds himself in the middle of a needle match between the magician and the King’s henchman. As the magician ignores his pleas to reverse the spell and send him back Jojo looks for a way to force the issue. This is out of character for the normally happy-go- lucky Jojo, who usually just drifts through life. He comes up with the idea of making a revolution and dethroning the King. He finds allies to help him and the plan swings into motion. Of course, everything goes wrong from the start.

Review

I received the book from the author for an honest review.

Well I think it’s pretty interesting and it’s fun too that’s a plus, the only thing in my particular case and maybe it’s just because i’m not accustomed are a little bit the slang and maybe the pace.

Now the good things, the plot is pretty interesting as well as the characters, secially jojo and shadlow it is pretty hilarious the way everything is set with them. they have a complicated relation.

Without giving too much, I think you should read the book if you like medieval setting and time traveling schemes.

Review: Last Life

Blurb

32294015Noah Cage is a cybernetic supersoldier, a war hero and a man on his fifth and final life. He’s a Lifer, an enhanced warrior. Repaired, rebuilt and improved after four lifetimes of soldiering. With each death comes further modification and enhancement, although at the loss of yet another piece of his dwindling humanity. Cage is thrust into the debacle of the Third Martian War. One that sees every man in his unit killed, including his best friend Rob Romero. After long years of imprisonment, he returns home to Earth, but it is not what it once was. The planet is slowly decaying after decades of mismanagement and corruption. He wants nothing more than to speak with Rose Romero, the widow of his best friend. Instead, he receives a hostile welcome and quickly falls foul of the law.

It is the beginning of a long, gruelling chase that takes him and Rose Romero back to Mars. A planet filled with memories of old battles, and the graveyard of so many soldiers from Earth. Noah finds himself thrust into the middle of a conspiracy between two great powers. Hunted by soldiers from Earth, and by the Martian corporate militias, he is close to the end. Until he encounters the Mars resistance. Men and women who want nothing more than their freedom and the means to exist on the hostile and barren world. It is the beginning of the fightback. Although sometimes, even five lives is not enough.

Last Life is the first book in the brand new military science fiction series set in the warring colonies of the Solar System. The series is a collaboration between acclaimed science fiction author Michael G. Thomas and bestselling military fiction author Eric Meyer.

the narration was impeccable I liked it a lot, I needed like a few minutes to accustom myself to the narrator but who doesn’t with a new one, but the voices were accurate and the pace was good. the story was so strong and well done I really liked that since I have been draw to military warfare lately and this one was so interesting and for me almost plausible and all. my favorite character in voice and personality was noah cage he was so cool and crazy absolutely loved him but damn what a hard bone he is on everyone’s jaws. if you like warfare tales this one is the one you should pick up

Review: The Sword of Agrippa

Blurb

THE SWORD OF AGRIPPA. Antioch.

22635582A rogue scientist’s search for dark energy collides with forces intent on preserving the old ways. Powerful oligarchs control science and religion.

Roy Swenson, banned from the US, hits Prague on a quest for energy which will transform the world and lead to a new tech revolution, a new renaissance.

He is forced to continue his research in Eastern Europe. From Prague he sets the stage for the next battle. One he hopes to win.

His experiments with DMT, pineal glands and the properties of a strange new substance (graphene) propel him into the spotlight, and the pressures build. The war begins.

Mainstream industrial, political and religious leaders view him as a threat, not a joke. Dark energy could disrupt humanity’s view of everything.

Roy’s dreams take him to Egypt as a young Roman soldier, Marcus Agrippa. He falls for Samia, an Egyptian slave priestess. In the secret chambers of the Great Library, she guides him through mysteries political and cosmic.

Dreams power Roy/Agrippa through devastating events and sacrifices. Join his quest.

Travel from Prague in 2020 to the Great Library of Alexandria in 48 BC, on a journey linking ancient scrolls, dark energy sensors, majestic temples, and torch-lit torture chambers.

Review

It was an interesting book, a little too technical for me, I can recommend it for people that likes very structured writing.

The writing is very specific and realistic and the future it portray is an interesting one where science seems to have reach its peak and some people want or are aware that everything around them is evolving even more.

for me as I said it was a little too heavy but it was very interesting the way the narrative tells you how everything have changed in a period of time and what have this done to people, a very cool addition on any sci fi lover shelf.

Descansos y enfermos

Bueno como sabrán he estado un poco enferma últimamente, pero ahí voy anoche pensé que me moría de la tos pero me puse vick vaporub y tome un jarabe para la tos y tabcin y ahí voy como mejorando, usualmente o siempre te dicen que no te auto mediques pero si funciona y no son antibióticos no creo que me vaya a pasar nada grave espero.

También como todos en mi casa andan así trajeron vitamina c para chupar así que ojala ya pronto me mejoro con eso y puedo ser libre de este resfriado que me dio ahora, porque primero tenía una infección en la garganta y me recetaron varias cosas bien caras la verdad pero supongo que aun me hacen efecto porque el antibiótico es hasta el 24 de este mes así que seguiré con eso e intentaré no mojarme ni nada y la tabcin y compañía creo que me ayudaran a quitarme el resfriado loco que cargo ahora.

Ahora no todo es malo, ayer en mi círculo de lectura del trabajo me gane la mala hora de Gabriel García Márquez (foto en el instagram), así que tengo más libritos que leer por ese lado vamos bien. Y en donde estoy trabajando ahora ya encontré dos libro más que quiero comprar, jajaja una siempre peca cuando se trata de libros, y bueno sin leer no me quedo, siempre hay algo nuevo e interesante que leer o ver.

Trataré de descansar bastante y por ahí les digo como me fue con todo esto que me ando tomando para cuidarme el resfriado.

Reseña

Este la verdad lo que no me gusto fue el como estaba escrito, la verdad era super lento y al final tuve que recurrir a que alguien me dijera la historia porque ya no soportaba seguir leyendo ese tipo de narración. Ahora para la gente que le gusta el detalle excesivo bueno definitivamente entonces deberían leer este libro porque detalles le sobran.
