Titanborn has all the elements of a best seller! Between the corporate greed and rivalries, Bruno plants the seeds of a tale that is really as old as our species. It's the tale of right over wrong. It's the tale of the oppressed subjugating their oppressors. ¡Viva la Revolucion!
Into the Dark is the last book in the Legend of the Great Horse trilogy. As our journey with Meagan comes to a very unanticipated end, the story continues to capture the imagination and emotions as well, if not better than the first two books. The story is swarming with revelations, history, action and (finally) a bit of romance. We even get a glimpse into a very unappealing and suppressed possible future.
When I got back into the car tears started streaming down my face. The old woman I was paired with gently asked me what happened. I told her and she kindly comforted me. The rest of the day my mind was on that family. My mind kept replaying her words "We are invisible to the world".
Malcolm Graves lives by two rules: finish the job, and get paid. After thirty years as a Collector, chasing bounties and extinguishing rebellions throughout the solar system, Malcolm does what he's told, takes what he's earned, and leaves the questions to someone else--especially when it comes to the affairs of offworlders.
I would say it's "The Odyssey" of the wild west with a swashbuckling dandy narrating and a journey of prophecy and magical realism. Add a pile of depraved characters and stir.
The Alpha Centauri star system begins to collapse and the resulting gravitational waves reach our planet, creating strange phenomena around the globe, leaving the people who are affected by them wondering what in the world is going on. A scientist in an isolated observatory sees clues that tell him what is happening to the world may be bigger and more deadly than a few earthquakes and a few floating objects. Dr. Paulo Restrepo will have to race against time and the doubts of a world used to gravity behaving the same everywhere at every time. By the time he figures out the cause and what that means for the final approaching event, it might be too late, but he has to try.
That's the first step. To show that you are, indeed, aware.
In his swampy home, Solomon is looking for fun but nobody wants to play. The dragonflies tell him to buzz off, the storks get in a flap, and the hippo is downright huffy. But then somebody else starts making a ruckus . . . and for once it is NOT Solomon. Could it be the perfect pal for a lonely croc? Matching vibrant art with rollicking words, Scottish artist Catherine Rayner has created a funny, reassuring story about a rambunctious youngster who chases off the friends he's trying to make.
I think the ideal society would be one that doesn’t even need money, because people just share with each other (voluntarily, not because somebody’s forcing them to). A society where everyone is good and kind would not need many rules at all, so there could be a lot of flexibility and creativity and freedom. Of course, a society with all good people would be very easy to keep going: practically any government or economic system would work perfectly and fairly.
