That’s right I was blessed to receive two books in the mail today for review.
The first one came from a website, Bloggingforbooks.com . They allow reviewers to register and pick the book that they want to read. They actually send you the physical book. That made me so happy. So out of like 5 books or so I picked:
I heard that this book was very good and I can’t believe that I own it now. I love the cover and I’m hoping to get to it this month. Here is the synopsis:
STEP INTO THE FOLD.
IT’S PERFECTLY SAFE.
The folks in Mike Erikson’s small New England town would say he’s just your average, everyday guy. And that’s exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he’s chosen isn’t much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he’s content with his quiet and peaceful existence.
That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve: far out in the California desert, a team of DARPA scientists has invented a device they affectionately call the Albuquerque Door. Using a cryptic computer equation and magnetic fields to “fold” dimensions, it shrinks distances so that a traveler can travel hundreds of feet with a single step.
The invention promises to make mankind’s dreams of teleportation a reality. And, the scientists insist, traveling through the Door is completely safe.
Yet evidence is mounting that this miraculous machine isn’t quite what it seems—and that its creators are harboring a dangerous secret.
As his investigations draw him deeper into the puzzle, Mike begins to fear there’s only one answer that makes sense. And if he’s right, it may only be a matter of time before the project destroys…everything.(Amazon)
Sounds good doesn’t it?
Ok so on to the next book. I remember asking for this one for review but it was awhile ago. So it was a very welcomed surprise that I received it.
The Automation: Vol. 1 of the Circo del Herrero Series (Volume 1)
The capital-A Automatons of Greco-Roman myth aren’t clockwork. Their design is much more divine. They’re more intricate than robots or androids or anything else mortal humans could invent. Their windup keys are their human Masters. They aren’t mindless; they have infinite storage space. And, because they have more than one form, they’re more versatile and portable than, say, your cell phone—and much more useful too. The only thing these god-forged beings share in common with those lowercase-A automatons is their pre-programmed existence. They have a function—a function Hephaestus put into place—a function that was questionable from the start…
I am so thankful to the authors and publishers that have sent me these books!!
