Book Review: Humans Bow Down

Humans Bow Down by James Patterson and Emily Raymond

First things first, let me just say that I loved this book! I just finished reading it yesterday, but from the day I first cracked it, I could hardly put it down. It doesn’t hurt that James Patterson is one of my favorite authors and he kept me hooked from the beginning on this one.

What it’s about: Robots, humans, war. All things that make a thrilling adventure story worth reading. Humans live in filth and are treated like slaves and garbage. They’re seen as the worst part of the world simply because they carry diseases and can’t control their emotions. Many are killed or thrown into prison to rot. That brings us to Six, the main protagonist. She’s young with a heart filled with the desire to stand up against the Hu-Bots so her human kind can take its place back on the food chain. She fights against all odds with the unlikeliest of allies–a robot by the name of MikkyBo. This particular Hu-Bot happens to have a glitch that gives her human-like emotions and beliefs. These two team up and start a fight against the robot commanders that wish to wipe humanity off the face of the planet. A war is started and all Hell breaks loose in what used to be the city of Denver.

I give this one a solid four stars. The writing is great and they keep you interested from the get-go. I love the action sequences and the bits that left me on the edge of my seat. I know this is a Sci-Fi novel, but there were just a few parts that were less believable than I hoped for and also some things that could’ve been left out. (I’ll leave future readers of this book to judge for themselves, but this is my opinion.)

All in all, I’d recommend this read to any fan of robotic-humanoids who have taken over the world. A lover of Science Fiction will get a kick out of this one. I’d say it’s more for adults between the ages of 18-25, but any age range–except small children–could get into this one.

Anyways, you can check out the book for yourself and snag your own copy by clicking the link. Happy reading!

Book Review: The Plantation

Written by Stella Samiotou Fitzsimons

This is the first book in The Plantation series and it was a good one. I was hooked right off the bat and found it hard to put my kindle down at times. It starts out a bit slow, but once it picks up the pace it’s great. This was a quick read and I’d recommend it to anyone into the young adult, action/adventure, dystopian types of books.

It takes place in the future after an alien race takes over the planet. They enslave the human race (naturally) and put the teenagers in these prison camps called the Plantations. A few of the kids escape and join together in hopes of rising up against the aliens and win back the planet. They call themselves the Saviors.

Freya is the main character in this book and she believes that she has no special abilities to add to the Saviors. She isn’t as strong as the others but she isn’t one to stand down when there’s a fight coming along. She narrarates this story, telling all about the plantations and the family she was forced to leave behind. Her best friend, Finn, sticks by her side, telling her that one day they’ll be able to show their worth and fight against the aliens, hoping to make a difference. All fo the Saviors want more to join them and start a revolution to send the aliens back to the hell they came from.

Of course this book wouldn’t be as interesting if something bad didn’t happen to the heroes. They get forced from their camp and cornered down by the aliens. And this is where I must stop or else I will spoil the entire thing. I am most definitely not one to ruin a book by doing that.

So, I’ll leave you with a link to download your very own copy of The Plantation and enjoy it just as much as I have.

Book Review: Dead Girl

By: Mark Boss

This one got me hooked from the first page. It is sort of on the apocalyptic end of the fiction world. It starts out in our world: a warm, sunny, beautiful place where the grass is green and the flowers are bright. The main character, Dahlia, slips into a coma and wakes up in the Shadow world where her mind had sent her. This place is filled with disgusting monsters and horrifying creatures. Cannibals run around trying to kill everyone and everything. The whole place is run by this witch, or the Queen as she prefers to be called.

In order for Dahlia to get out of the Shadow World, she must conquer her monster. By her monster, I literally mean it is hers. She was sent into a coma because she has a brain tumor and the monster signifies that tumor, therefore she has to defeat it. In the process, she teams up with a group of other kids who are in a position similar to her own. They battle the Queen’s minions in order to survive and go through hell and back just to have a few more seconds of life in the Shadow World.

I won’t give away too much, but it has an open ending, meaning there is a sequel to this book. One which I am planning to purchase and read. I enjoyed this one, gave it 4 stars on Amazon. There were a few grammatical errors and some of the sentence structures didn’t read well-in my opinion. All in all, this was a good read and I’d recommend it to those who enjoy young adult-action/adventure-apocalyptic type fiction.

Book Review: The Conviction: Enacting Vigilante Justice

Written by John Mathews

Here is another great read by this amazing author. This is a suspenseful novella about the corruption that hides in the midst of our judicial system. You’ll follow four main characters; Nancy, John, Jeffrey, and Kevin as they are trapped inside an abandoned warehouse for what they thought was nothing more than a simple investment opportunity. All of them are lured there without knowledge of who all will be attending the meeting. All four of them know each other because Nancy was the prosecuting attorney for a case Jeffrey and Kevin were involved in where John was the defense attorney for an innocent man that was wrongfully accused.

The person that brought them to the warehouse wants them to pay for wronging the innocent man who is forced to serve a life sentence in prison. He demands that they do certain tasks (I will not give them away, naturally) and if they do not comply, then something horrible will happen to them. They are locked in the warehouse without cell phone service or any way of getting contact with the outside world at all.

This one is suspenseful and will keep you guessing to the very end. I am more than looking forward to reading anything else this new author writes in the future. You can check out this one by clicking the link below!

Book Review: Eldorado

By Jay Allan Storey

If you’re looking for an adventure/survival story, then this one is for you. There’s fighting and love while the characters on the brink of finding something that could possibly save a portion of the planet while facing death in the process. I live for these kinds of stories and this one kept me hooked.

It is based in future where mankind is stuck living basically in poverty. Gasoline is so hard to come by it’s practically extinct. You hit a gold mine if you found even a gallon of the stuff. So, when the teenaged boy, Danny, came across a miracle, he sought out to find it in hopes of hitting it rich. As with every awesome discovery, there is always someone else who wants to take it from you and kill you when you show them where it is. That’s where the bad guy Crack comes in and Danny has no choice but to run for his life. His brother, Richard, thinks he’s gone missing so he leaves his great job as a professor to search for him.

Richard is way out of his territory when he leaves the comfort of their small home and travels through bad territory after really bad territory, fighting many kinds of enemies, yet finding love as he searches for his only living family member. They face death and hardships. Sad times and bittersweet moments while they search high and low for the one and only person who holds the secret to finding the treasure of a lifetime.

This book was definitely interesting and well written. I was hooked right from the first page. Action and adventure tales are what I live for and this one is a must read. Recommended for anyone who wants a good survival read and wants to get lost in a book trying to find treasure.

Book Review: A Game of Greed and Deception

By John Mathews

This book kept me hooked right from the very beginning. A real page turner that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat through the entire thing. It’s mysterious, suspensful, dramatic, and did I mention gripping?

The book starts off with what you think is going to be a family getaway in a remote Colorado cabin resort with the main character, Stephen, his young wife, Tammy, and his daughter, Maria, setting off to the mountains during a very snowy blizzard up a mountain where no one can get to them very easily. They have a lovely dinner and everything seems like it’s going to be a great trip, until Tammy has her “beloved” husband fetch her a pack of cigarettes only to have him never return. Of course, she plays the worried wife, calls the cops after his disappearance, and acts all sorts of frantic in front of Maria. But, you learn certain things about this woman that will have you second guessing her every movement and motive.

It’s very hard to not give too much away about this one. If I say too much, I will ruin the entire thing. It really kept me guessing until the very end and I couldn’t put it down until I knew exactly what was going on. You’ll think one thing, then get proved wrong over and over and over again and I loved it! I recommend this to anyone with a taste for the mysterious and the suspense genres. You can check it out at the link below and as always, happy reading!

Book Review: Z2134

By Sean Platt and David Wright

This is the first book in a series of I believe 3 books. It is an apocalyptic tale which naturally caught my interest right off the bat and it is pretty similar to The Hunger Games, but I still enjoyed the read and will definitely be finishing the series.

It takes place in this city behind a wall that keeps its people safe from zombies. You’d think it would be awesome there, but according to some, the city sucks. There are so many rules and laws and if you disobey them, you get thrown in jail and wind up playing the Darwin Games. Some people create an underground society that goes against all of the city’s rules and helps people escape to a better place.

In the Darwin Games you fight against zombies and other prisoners until the very end and only one can survive to win a trip to the not so fabulous City 7. That’s where we find the Jonah Lovecraft who wins the games at the beginning, goes to what he thinks is this heaven on earth place, only to wind up a prisoner of a man he wronged in the past. Meanwhile, he daughter, Ana, gets into trouble on her own without meaning to and winds up getting a first class trip to play in the games as well. Jonah also has a son, Adam, who is this sweet kid that is kind of a loser in the group home where he lives. He ends up being at the wrong end of someone who tries taking advantage of him and things go really bad really fast for the boy.

I don’t want to give away too much, but I am totally looking forward to the next one in the series.

This book is filled with blood, guts, and gore. I loved how it wasn’t all about the girl finding her true love, although they sort of hint about a crush she has one boy, Liam. There’s action and suspense around every corner. This is truly a keep you on the edge of your seat kind of book. I recommend this to zombie lovers everywhere, just beware of the gory scenes. I’m not sure if die hard fans of The Hunger Games would enjoy it because of how similar it is to that series, but you never know. I loved The Hunger Games and I really enjoyed this read as well.

Anyways, you can pick up or download a copy of Z2134 at the link below.
Happy reading!

Book Review: Boy Swap by Kristina Springer

I went way out of my normal genre of the types of books I read. I normally stick to the action/adventure/never-happen-in-a-million-years type of books. Well, I read this book and it is clearly a young adult book, which I read plenty of YA books. The description of this book kind of got me and I was thinking maybe I should read something different than the norm and see how I like it. So, I downloaded this book, it was on a free thing on Amazon Kindle, so that was pretty awesome, and I gave it a try. I found this book to be funny, romantic, yet disappointing in some places.

Boy Swap is about just that. This group of extremely popular girls in high school start up this group called the Boy Swap Club, which is basically this made up thing where one chick gets to date whatever guy she wants to and it’s totally okay as long as you sign a contract and wear this wonderful pink scarf every day of the week. First off, all I could think is that I would never join a group like that in a million years because jealousy is not my strong point. But the main character, Brooke, joins and instantly hates the fact that her boyfriend is flirting with the preppy, popular girl who wants him.

The book goes on about Brooke dealing with the problems of having to share her boyfriend, a.k.a. the supposed love of her life, with another girl and he’s totally hiding his dates with the other girl which basically means he’s cheating on her. Brooke gets a little vindictive and goes for this other girl’s boyfriend only to have her “swap” attempt blow up in her face.

The ending was a little predictible, but it was nice, happy ending, and I can be a sucker for those. I love when the main character gets what they want, sometimes.

But, like I said, I went out of my normal genre of reading material, and found this YA-chick book to read. I’d recommend this book to teens and young adults whom I know would love reading about the drama of having a boyfriend that other girls are into. I thought this book was interesting and it did keep me hooked right from the beginning.

Review of Blackout by Madeleine Henry

I just finished reading this book called Blackout by Madeleine Henry and I was absolutely hooked right from the very beginning. First off, I admit I am a very slow reader which is a bit odd since I am a writer myself. But, with this book, it took me much less time to finish it than normal, mainly because I fell in love with it.

This is the first book of the Darkness Trilogy. You’ll follow Phoenix and Star on their journey of trying to keep their love. They live in an apocalyptic world with a wall, the Frontier, seperating them from the other half of the country. They live without power and things they would need to survive while the other half lives with all the power and then some. Still, Star and Phoenix manage to fall in love and be as happy as they can with the lives they’ve been given. Until they spot someone in the dark zone with a power source of their own and Phoenix has a strong desire to figure out how they got it.

Like I said, Phoenix and Star’s love is so strong and he will do anything for her. Including following her to the other side of the frontier in order to keep their love alive.

It gets pretty intense and will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire wild ride that is this book. I can’t give away too much and I really hope I didn’t with this review, but I highly recommend it for those of you that are into these apocalyptic types or just a different kind of love story. I’m looking forward to the next book in the trilogy and I expect great things from this author.
