Review of Otherworlders by Angela Cavanaugh

 

Okay as I said yesterday here is the review of The Otherworlders. I enjoyed it very much and the concept was cool! I just gobbled it. But now as I'm out of the book rush I think the rating I would give now is 4.5 stars but that is approximately five so...
  So check out below to know more about the book. I'm just doing this really fast as I've to do solve revise some math problems. I've a test tomorrow, wish me luck.
 And this cover is new one. At first when it changed to this one I was like okay but at that time I've not read the book but I love this cover now and I think it was good idea to change to this.



 

Title: Otherworlders


Author: Angela Cavanaugh

 


Genre: Sci-fi 

 

GR 

 

  Synopsis


When a virus threatens humanity with extinction, the desperate and dwindling number of uninfected seek refuge in a parallel universe. The technology is untested. The other universe is unprepared and one thing is made violently clear: they are not wanted.

As a weaponized, fatal virus mutates and threatens to kill all life forms on Earth, Special Agent Williams and the government conspires to send the healthy away. After space travel and going underground are ruled impossible, all that remains is the theoretical technology of an autistic savant: escaping to a parallel universe. But their arrival is met with suspicion and hatred. To evade persecution, experimentation, and to save their lives, the Otherworlders must find a way to escape, survive, and outwit Agent Williams murderous double.

My Review

OtherworldersOtherworlders by Angela Cavanaugh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is total amazeballs. I loved it. I've been wanting to read this book for quite a while and lol I've forgotten what it was about just that I've been wanting to read it. Finally! I read it, after reading the book I don't remember if I read the synopsis, I don't usually, I like to just go into books head on (my gut feeling is good, there are only few books I didn't like which I can count on my one hand). Wow the plot line is amazing. It is little sci-fi, a little dystopian, a few with political agenda and drama, oohhh a mixture I really enjoyed!
I liked how it took from multiple POV's in third person, from different set of groups and how is the situation there. Then the characters, there are like no main characters to save the day. The people become the main character when the occasion rises. And getting glimpses into heads of people whether it be protagonist or antagonist or normal people who may rise to occasion.
I liked the pace and the length of the novel; 428 pages ( I like big books). When I told my friend today about the book she was like she wants to read it lol! Hope it is a series.
An enjoyable hooking read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*****4.5*****
It was awesome! I enjoyed it very much. We always think what will happen if an A.I. being is created, would it be boon or the opposite. It's unknown we will never know until it happens. But that plot is on sideline. The main plot line is about Auto the A.I. and him coming in this world and adapting. I liked it and my fav was Auto bi. You will know why once you read it. And the book is free right now if you didn't know. So go check it out!

My Review

 

The Hunters (The Silverleaf Chronicles Book 3)The Hunters by Vincent Trigili
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked the book. I enjoyed adventure of Silverleaf and Kaylissa. How to hunt and be hunters, so the title. I like the book but it felt much like a filler book.
A good read for me. Got the ecopy in exchange of an honest review.

Yay! Today I though to do Wattpad Wednesday every Wednesday which you already guessed by name duh! If you didn't know, Wattpad had a hand in getting me addicted to reading and I usually read books from there. 

What is Wattpad?
It is a site where inspiring authors can post their stories and get opinions of other readers present there, in short. If you want to know more you can google and check it out. You should definitely check it out!

I love reading books there. There are so many amazing writers  and so many books which I've read and loved  have gotten published, it feels amazing! I mean it's like I've read that book and now it is published, Yay! I read it before you :P (just kidding, lol).

I'll be posting books I've read earlier which I've not shared here before and the books I've recently read and liked/loved. So lets get started (rubbing my hands).

The Quirky Tale of April Hale by demonicblackcat is one of my favorite book on Wattpad. I guess I read this a year or two years ago, don't remember but I always suggest my friends who I've gotten addicted to this site/app (Cheshire grin) this book. I love when my friends love a book I suggested (The feeling is just amazing). It is one of the book I love. It is quite cliché high school story with humor but an adorable story. April, as from the title is a quirky character. It's fun and quirky read. Check out the synopsis below cuz I don't remember much about it and may spoil it for you. Have to re-read it, which I'm looking forward to.

Synopsis


Self-proclaimed weirdo April Hale and the notorious troublemaker Ryder Black have been living side by side for more than ten years. Both never attempted to communicate with each other, but on the night Ryder Black is thrown out by his own father, he asks her a question that might change both of their lives:
“March, will you let me stay in your room?”

He even got her name wrong.

-

A coming of age story about loss, the wonders of falling in love, and ultimately, pretending to be normal. Get inside April's distorted and yet humorous perspective, and watch as her tale unfolds into a shocking finish.

Review: Zero Echo Shadow Prime by Peter Samet

I'm really lucky and happy I stumbled upon this book. This book is amazing! just Amazing. The writing is good and flowing and the fact it flowed smoothly when there was change in POV's. This is the first book of author Peter Samet, it had blown my mind and I can't wait to read his future works.

And I just noticed my review was 50th on Amazon US, and this being my 101th review on Goodreads. It's freaking cool!! lol.

Title: Zero Echo Shadow Prime

Author: Peter Samet

Genre: Sci-fi

GR 

  Synopsis

 

  CONSCIOUSNESS IS IN THE CODE

The year is 2045. 18-year-old Charlie Nobunaga creates the world’s first sentient AI and becomes an overnight sensation. But amid the red carpet galas and TV interviews, Charlie is diagnosed with cancer, and her promising future grinds to a halt.

To save her life, an ambitious tech company uploads Charlie’s mind into the body of a cutting-edge robot. The procedure is a success, but with a horrifying catch. They create additional clones for their own ends.

Charlie wakes up four times as four distinct entities: a robot named PRIME, a holographic assistant named SHADOW, a mysterious four-armed killer named ECHO, and the original dying human renamed ZERO. Separated and imprisoned, each version of Charlie begins an arduous journey alone. But their paths soon intersect in surprising ways as they retaliate against the people determined to destroy them.

ZERO ECHO SHADOW PRIME is the story of one young woman who splits into four…and fights to become whole again.

And I found the following amazing illustrations on author Peter Samets site







ZERO

the dying human
 


ECHO

a four-armed killer
 


SHADOW

PRIME

My Review




ZERO ECHO SHADOW PRIMEZERO ECHO SHADOW PRIME by Peter Samet
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*****4.5****
I loved the story!! I loved the title as well,actually that's what drew me in then the blurb and the cover; it's perfect!
The story hooked me from the beginning. And when Charlie saw how she could be save when she goes to place where the projects are working on, it reminded me of the scene from Resident Evil which got me more excited! (Cloning storage in the movie)
And I loved getting to know about different versions of Charlie. I love how a story comes together ;) (I love that quote, and I thought about it when I reached the near end of the book and tweaked it accordingly) Yes how all the things at first which felt wrong came together.
I highly recommend this book to sci-fi lovers. I'm looking forward to read next books in the series! I don't know about the next book but how things are, I'm excited with just thinking about it. And don't worry no cliffhanger but there always will be problems to solve.
Hope it doesn't take three years ( I read acknowledgements) *shrug* and author Peter Samet is working on the book.
Got the book in exchange of an honest review.

Review and Giveaway: The Last Gatekeeper by Katy Haye

23620919 

Title: The Last Gatekeeper

Author: Katy Haye

Genre: Fantasy 


GR 

  Synopsis

Zan knows she's different. Today she discovers why...

Zanzibar MacKenzie knows she’s a freak. She has EHS – electrical hypersensitivity – which leaves her trying to live a Stone Age life in the twenty-first century: no internet, no phone, no point really. Then Thanriel knocks on her door and the dull summer holiday becomes maybe too exciting. Zan discovers fairies and angels are real beings from other planets, she herself is half alien, and the future of life on Earth rests on her shoulders.

My Review 

The Last GatekeeperThe Last Gatekeeper by Katy Haye
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked the book. I liked the plot line of the story. I just couldn't connect with the main character Zanzibar, so I didn't feel her, like it felt she was to good to be true. The first half was okay. The romance between Thanriel and Zan felt like it was fast but I guess it may be because I didn't connect to the main character. But the story got more interesting when Cal and her crossed to Fane. It got more interesting and liked how it ended. And it seems there may be more books in the series which I would like to read cuz I do want to know what is life after saving the world. A one time read for me though.
