This book Embryo Five -Silver Girl is a little different than the other five, somehow it seems a little darker, a little sadder, than the other four. The story begins with the murder of an actress friend of Jill’s and David’s, one Jody Merrill. Jody had touched David and Jill. Her sad life before she became an actress had drawn her to the warmth and family life that David, Jill, Jesse and the other interns had. David and Jill are devastated at her lost and strive to help the police find her murderer.
This book has a solid story and an interesting plot which pulls the reader along at a satisfying pace. The reader is captivated by the young family of David, Jill and the miracle child Jesse as he grows and blossoms and by the gripping twists and turns as we solve the murder right alongside of Jill and David. A very satiating read in the simply brilliant Embryo series by J. A. Schneider.
Jesse the baby that was grown and farmed in a fake womb is about to celebrate his birthday with a big conference and party with doctor’s coming from aJesse the baby that was grown and farmed in a fake womb is about to celebrate his birthday with a big conference and party with doctor’s coming from around the world. Jill and David are not happy about it, but they know scientifically necessary to parade Jesse in front of the world before they can celebrate his birthday in their little family. The reader sees more of Jesse’s development. Their hospital jobs as doctors bring them in to the sphere of a killer. ‘The Couple killer’ sees David and Jill and wants to best them. He taunts David and the police with ‘Catch me’. What follows is a cat and mouse game between the illusive killer and David and Jill. The attention to detail and the medical jargon that the author uses make this story a book worth reading. An action packed thriller that keeps you glued to the pages as you wonder how far this killer will go to achieve his twisted mind’s ends. A very enjoyable read. ...more

The hard drive and other operatives lead Fox and Parris to a newer bigger threat on America. But who and what their motives are is the biggest surprise for the agents, who must try to stop them before they kill again this time on American soil. One of the criticisms I had of Russell Brooks’ first book in this series, which the character of Doctor Nita Parris needed fleshing out and you learn more about Nita’s background in this book and this makes the book more satisfying. Russell Brooks took the time to research and it shows in every loving, action detail. The weapons are believable and even scary. I enjoyed reading this page turner and would recommend this book to those who enjoy a rich story with love scenes, combat and fight scenes as well written dialogue and passages. ...more

Ridley Fox is an agent with the CIA; his worlds collide as he is sent to investigate the consortium Arms of Ares who is also responsible for the deathRidley Fox is an agent with the CIA; his worlds collide as he is sent to investigate the consortium Arms of Ares who is also responsible for the death of his fiancée. Arms of Ares has weaponized a deadly virus that if unleashed could end the world. Misinformed and hoodwinked at every turn Ridley must use all his abilities and intelligence to decipher the truth and save the world. Russell Brooks has created an action packed book that begins and ends with conflict. The book is well researched as details seem to ring too true. Reading the book the reader can imagine all of this happening especially given the recent Ebola news and how that is spreading. Mr. Brooks does keep the reader in suspense; the fight and confrontation scenes are detailed in such a way that I could picture them all and seemed very authentic. I also liked the selection of names and the villain’s names specifically, but I would have liked more information on Doctor Nita Parris and a little more delving into her character so I could have understood her better. A very enjoyable action thriller as someone who enjoys reading ‘Jack Reacher’ books and the ‘Bourne’ books I think readers who like those books would enjoy this one. ...more
Unravelled is the story of a couple Edward and Ann Jamieson and their relationship and how it is impacted by twoBook Review -Unravelled by M. K. Tod
Unravelled is the story of a couple Edward and Ann Jamieson and their relationship and how it is impacted by two world wars. The author delves into both husband and wife’s reactions to difficult conditions and distance war can bring to a marriage. The writer has done a lot of research and it shows with the attention to small details about the husband’s jobs in the wars and other character’s occupation’s descriptions. Reading about war is often fraught with tears for the reader, due to the carnage done in the two world wars and this book is no exception as the reader gets to experience the war through the writer’s character’s eyes. While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I felt the book could be divided into two parts. The writer could have started with Edward participating in in World War 1 and it’s aftermath on the main character afterwards and then the second book starting with World War II and how it affected the couple. Anyone who enjoys character rich and historically accurate world war books will enjoy this novel. This manuscript shows the gritty underside of war and how it affects not only soldiers, but those left behind and how we struggle to make sense of it all, while still trying to maintain relationships in a crumbling world.
