C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Insignia
The earth is in the middle of WWIII in Insignia, the first entry in S. J. Kincaid's fast-paced sci-fi adventure trilogy perfect for fans of Ender's Game.

The planet's natural resources are almost gone, and war is being fought to control the assets of the solar system. The enemy is winning. The salvation may be Tom Raines. Tom doesn't seem like a hero. He's a short fourteen-year-old with bad skin. But he has the virtual-reality gaming skills that make him a phenom behind the controls of the battle drones.

As a new member of the Intrasolar Forces, Tom's life completely changes. Suddenly, he's someone important. He has new opportunities, friends, and a shot at having a girlfriend. But there's a price to pay. . . .

I agree! And 'pretty' people tend to influence others more. Heather also has her face working for her lol

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Hopefully picking this back up tomorrow. I got sick and was busy at a book festival the past couple of days, so that slowed me down. Should still finish up soon.

Also, I met S J Kincaid and she was great!


Christina | 4418 comments Oh wow!! That's good! Did you get her signature :D get well soon!


message 31: by C.P. (new) - rated it 4 stars

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Thanks!

Yes, I got the entire trilogy signed! She said if I had enjoyed Insignia enough to make it past the 150 pages of info dump then I would probably continue to like it. I didn't find it excessively info dumpy though.


Christina | 4418 comments Neither did I!
Wowow I'm so jealous!! :P maybe she'll come to Australia some day!


message 33: by C.P. (new) - rated it 4 stars

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Hopefully so! I mean, who wouldn't want to go to Aistralia!?

Once we finish this trilogy you should read The Diabolic; it was excellent!
