Project ELE by Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckels

Project ELE (ELE Series #1) (The ELE Series)I am redFrom the authors of the best selling Night Marchers Series, comes an all new apocalyptic series with a paranormal twist that is enjoyable for all ages.     

Millions have already died, and thousands more are perishing daily. As a last ditch effort to preserve the human race, the government implements Project ELE. With the earth heating at rapid speeds, all remaining survivors are forced to turn to F.E.M.A. shelters to wait out ELE’s wrath.

  Fifteen-year-old Willow Mosby’s life, as she knows it, ends the moment she walks through the shelter’s door. Willow has to quickly adapt to the new challenges that shelter life demands, the least of which includes making new friends, working a full time job and experiencing her first relationship.

Soon after making an interesting discovery, Willow and her friends start exhibiting strange abilities. Seeking answers, they embark on a mission to find out what these new abilities mean and whether they are a gift or a curse. This new adventure can send her world crashing down around her. The question is: Can Willow survive the fall?

I am rediscovering my love for science fiction and this book was one of the stories I chose to reignite my imagination and I am not disappointed. From the beginning, I was engrossed with the imaginative story this pair of authors laid out. Good job ladies!

Even though it is fantasy, the conspiracy theory in this book is believable. Too many people believe blindly will do anything to survive, even trust in a government that may not have their best at heart. The premise that a government could sequester 1000’s of people willingly by telling them it was for their own good, and even accept immunizations that could save their lives because they are TOLD it was the only way, is once again very believable.

I had to stifle my disappointment when I turned the page and the story was over – however, it left me greedily waiting for the next installment  I can not wait to see what the “real” story is.

The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson

The Gargoyle

The nameless and beautiful narrator of “The Gargoyle” is driving along a dark road when he is distracted by what seems to be a flight of arrows. He crashes into a ravine and wakes up in a burns ward, undergoing the tortures of the damned. His life is over – he is now a monster. But in fact it is only just beginning. One day, Marianne Engel, a wild and compelling sculptress of gargoyles, enters his life and tells him that they were once lovers in medieval Germany. In her telling, he was a badly burned mercenary and she was a nun and a scribe who nursed him back to health in the famed monastery of Engelthal. As she spins her tale, Scheherazade fashion, and relates equally mesmerizing stories of deathless love in Japan, Greenland, Italy and England, he finds himself drawn back to life – and, finally, to love.

A friend of mine recommended this book to me when it first came out. I had never heard of the author before but I took a chance and picked up a copy. From page one, I couldn’t put it down. For some reason parts of this book as stuck with me over the years and I have recommended it to many of my friends. I cant wait to see what the author publishes next.

Only time Will Tell, by Jillian Holmes

Only Time Will TellTo preserve eternal life, Sergeant Joshua Adams time travels from the future to gain the trust of geneticist Renee Bailey. But Renee won’t give up the formula for eternal life without a fight; she’s nearly as stubborn as he is. When an outside company threatens Renee’s life, Josh finds himself willing to risk his life to save her. But will he? Book I of the Time Series.

An Awesome story!

What an awesome story!!! While I am not a huge fantasy reader, I LOVE time-travel stories and this one was well written and believable. I also liked the story line combined with love story. I am not sure if the author plans on bringing together both characters again, but it would be cool to bring the heroine to the future so she can be with her soldier hero.
