Review: Taliesin

Taliesin (The Pendragon Cycle, #1)Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This book leaves you breathless! My sister, Nannie, recommended it. Since I’m always telling her of good books to read, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try one of her suggestions. Best idea ever! My sister is pure genius!

This retelling of Merlin is magical, spine-tingling, and I could gush on and on. This is only part 1 of the series, setting the stage for the birth of Merlin.

Review: Star Trek: Typhon Pact #3: Rough Beasts of Empire

Star Trek: Typhon Pact #3: Rough Beasts of EmpireStar Trek: Typhon Pact #3: Rough Beasts of Empire by David R. George

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Yes, believe it or not, I marked down a Star Trek novel as only 2 stars. I was not happy with this book at all. I understand the Star Trek universe is now screwed with the new game: Star Trek Online. It just seemed the majority of the book was backstory for STO.

Sisko was a complete disappointment. I used to love the guy. C’mon, what’s not to love…he punched Q!! Classic! He was a combination of Kirk and Picard. Now he’s leaving his wife and child because the Prophets don’t talk to him anymore. He won’t have any sort of friendship with his new crew. Is this Sisko a doppelganger? Hmmm.

I seriously hope better things are in store for DS9 and for the Star Trek universe. Otherwise, it’s going to make this Trekkie pretty annoyed!

BTW, did you ever think Kira would become a vedek? Nope, neither did I!

Review: The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life

The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your LifeThe 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life by Glenn Beck

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A simply amazing book. If you haven’t read it, please do. Nada political, it’s just about making a better you. Since none of us are perfect, I don’t see how anyone can object to making yourself better. I probably will have to reread this book in the near future to further solidify the concepts; a workbook should be included with it!
