Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy? by Gaia B. Amman – Review by Emily Walsh

Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy?Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy?
By: Gaia B. Amman
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Linked: Can Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy? by Gaia B. Amman was an hooking, engaging, detailed driven read that me hooked from start to finish.

Not my first read from this author, so I knew going in I was in for something interesting, unique and well written. I was not disappointed. This book wasn’t like anything I have read before, and frankly I’m a little wordless in regards of what to write, to structured this review.

My head is all messy, and my heart a little crushed, yet full. This book was written in gray. There was no clear good or evil, making this sci-fi fantasy have an alarming realistic quality, it reflected how the world actually works, making is otherworldly read, relatable and connecting. The attention to detail was outstanding, and you can feel the passion that Gaia brings in mixing her bio background with her fresh original writing abilities. All of this is brought to life by well crafted multi layered characters, and an equally complex and engrossing plot.

This book is high quality and worth your time, energy, and money. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get lost and absorbed in this gem of a read.

Happy Reading

Britt Kelly’s life has blown up in her face. After her parents’ divorce, her family moves from the suburbs of Trebridge into her half-sister’s apartment in the projects. Britt must adjust to poverty, a new high school, and a step-mother who hates her and her younger brothers. But these aren’t Britt’s worst problems. She discovers she’s been drafted to help the Gargoyle Guardians of her city to fight the demons invading her city.

In the mage-fought Demon Wars, the minions of Prince Vetis have built a secret base in Trebridge behind the Kingscourt’s battle lines. Like most humans, Britt didn’t know demons existed before she was drafted to fight them with three new friends. Now she must fight against the evil that threatens her city.

As the demon forces grow, the Gargoyle Guardians of the city must teach the four teens to use enough “Grace” as a weapon to survive. Britt’s new problem: learning to control her magical powers…in spite of Gillen, the gargoyle leader, pissing her off with his fussy rules and demands.

A Northern California gal, M. K. Theodoratus has been intrigued by fantasy since she discovered comic books and the land of Oz. Some of my early favorites were A. Merritt, Andre Norton, and Fritz Lieber. She has traveled through many fantasy worlds since then.

When she’s not disappearing into other writer’s worlds, she’s creating her own alternative worlds — that of Andor where demons prey and that of the Far Isle Half-Elven where she explores the social and political implications of genetic drift on a hybrid elf/human people. Magic and mayhem are her favorite topics.

Wren thought things were bad when her boyfriend’s father tried to frame her for murder. But that was before a hostile army showed up at the city gates, ready to swallow Maradis whole. And before guild members began disappearing one by one–including the Confectioner’s Guild’s newest Gifted recruit.

Wren, suspecting the king is to blame for the disappearances, undertakes a dangerous investigation that sets her on a collision course with old and new enemies alike. Will she be able to find the missing guild members before tensions boil over into outright rebellion? Or are the guilds willing to go further than she ever realized to rid themselves of the king’s tyranny…

Don’t miss this thrilling Book 2 in the Confectioner Chronicles!

The Boss (Fire's Edge, #1)The Boss by Abigail Owen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Boss by Abigail Owen is a dragon shifter romance book. It is my first book like this and I found it to be really Interesting. I really enjoyed Delaneys strong and feisty personality. I loved how she actively pursued Finn even when he was fighting off his attractions and not wanting to just go with it. Overall I really liked the writing style and flow of the book. It was really easy to get lost in. All in all I would definitely read others by this author. 4 star rating.

The world was dark, the grid down—probably for good. No one knew why.

Raiders held the upper hand, combing the forests in search of what they needed. Weapons were in short supply, as was food and clean water.

Sandal had only known the reality of trying to stay one step ahead of danger. But when she met Jacob things changed. He was her lifeline, her one tether. And when they parted, her hope vanished along with him.

But that was then. Now she must find her way out of a world gone mad, or die trying.

About Nikki Broadwell

I was raised by fairies in a sylvan glade under a massive oak tree. My early life was spent wandering fields and woods searching for acorns and berries and staring at the cloud shadows racing across the landscape while listening to the whispers on the wind.

Magic and the mystical are alive and well in all my books. Celtic and Norse fantasy, time travel, murder mixed up with ghosts, humor and steamy romance, and a shapeshifting coyote, inhabit my 19 novels. If confused about where to begin–start with Moonstone, book 1 of Wolfmoon.

My books are not what you would call literature, and yet they are not mere entertainment either. They are unique–humorous at times, sad at times, and page-turners that take the reader into a world separate from this one. I do not write to market, I write from my heart.

I couldn’t stop writing if I tried–it is the heart and soul of me now. I am still astounded by how my characters lead me on, taking me down meandering paths where I hadn’t planned to go. The muse sits on my shoulder most days, and when she’s absent I flounder and realize I need a break. I love all things magic, including the Tarot, the runes, divination of all kinds, ghosts, clairvoyance, astral travel–you name it. Magic is all around us if only we open our eyes to it.

I lived in the Pacific Northwest for sixteen years before moving to the desert southwest with my husband, a cat and a dog. The move was hard because I left family behind, but Arizona is a wonderful place to be and the weather, at least in the winter, is delightful!

In my spare time I do yoga, hike, garden, and enjoy the bird and animal life that abound in the desert.
