Solaris Seethes

I received a free book from Online Book Club in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Solaris Seethes is a book about the anger and heartbreak of being betrayed by someone you trusted. It is much more than that though. Janet McNulty artfully twists themes of friendship and purpose into this action-packed, sci-fi novel.

Rynah is from the planet Lanyr. She comes in late to work because the love of her life, Klanor, had proposed to her that morning. Little does she know that it was all a ploy and his real purpose is to his hands on the crystal that she is guarding. That day he makes his move stealing the crystal and destroying Lanyr. Now Rynah, with the help of her spaceship Solaris, has to recruit four humans from the primitive Terra Sector to help her find the rest of the crystals and stop Klanor. Together they embark on a quest following an ancient prophecy that Rynah had always thought meant nothing.

Gifts from Heaven

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Gifts from Heaven by  James Stuart Bell is a book about miraculous answers to prayer. Time and time again God amazes us with his solutions to our problems.

This book is set up as a series of short stories by various authors who tell how God performed miracles in their lives. From changing three-valved hearts into four-valved ones to mysterious nurses who can’t be seen on the security footage, there is no end to the surprises God has up his sleeve.

I enjoyed this book. I loved how it kept surprising me with the new ways God fixes problems. My only problem is that the e-book quality of this book is bad. Some of the stories had the whole first page cut out. I was able to understand what had happened from context, but I would have liked to read the first part of the story. All in all, I would recommend this book just not in e-book form.

The Aeneid

mpbooks: Today on mpbooks we have a very special segment for you. I have my top reporter, Maya Papaya, coming live from The Trojan War. Over to you, Maya.

(awkward delay as you wait for Maya to hear you)

Papaya: Thank you. I am here live from the Trojan War. I have a soldier her with me to tell us what’s going on. What’s your name sir?

soldier: My name is Patroclus.

Papaya: So, Patroclus, what’s going one here today? What’s with all the commotion?

Patroclus: What do you live in a hole? It was a  trick! They’re all over the  place!

Papaya: What was a  trick? Who are all over the place?

Patroclus: The Greeks! They tricked us with that stupid horse of theirs. We brought it into the city and then they crawled out and attacked.

Papaya: Crawled  out of where?

Patroclus: Crawled out of the horse! You’re not even listening to me! I’m through talking with you.

(Patroclus storms off)

Papaya: Well that was weird and uninformative. Over to you… Wait! I think I see Aeneas! And he’s coming this way! Aeneas! Aeneas! A word please?

Aeneas: Sorry can’t talk I need to find my wife.

random roman soldier: He accidentally left his wife back in the city. He’s going back to look for her.

Papaya: And you are?

soldier: I’m his father, Anchises.

Papaya: Can you tell me what’s going on here?

Anchises: Sure. The Greeks got into Troy and now we’re all running for our lives.

Papaya: I know that…

Anchises: Look there’s Aeneas. Maybe he can answer your questions. Aeneas! This lady wants a word with you!

Aeneas: Yes?

Papaya: Did you find your wife?

Aeneas: She’s dead.

Papaya: Oh  I’m so…

Aeneas: It’s okay. I saw her spirit. She told me to find a new Troy.

Papaya: And on that weird note we will end out. Over to you mpbooks.
