Book Review Tuesday on Wednesday

Life II by Scott Spotson    4 Stars

I enjoyed this book, especially the fact that it was unpredictable. When Max was given the opportunity to go back in time he had no idea what would change or how different his life would be. Through this long novel we saw how his choices affected those around him. Some remained friends no matter what. His emotions concerning the children he left behind were palpable. Interesting take on time travel.

Book Review Tuesday

I've posted a couple of reviews on Goodreads and Amazon in the last couple of weeks. In case you missed these:

Into the Dim (Into the Dim #1)

by Janet B. Taylor -- 5 stars

Hope doesn't know she comes from a long line of time travelers, and when she finds out, she also learns her presumed dead mother is alive but trapped in time. Her adventures with her new friends and a fascinating man are filled with references to actual history from the time of Queen Eleanor  of Aquitaine and Thomas Becket.

The book ends with enough threads dangling that this is sure to be a series. And sure enough the sequel is called Sparks of Light.

Just The Beginning (The Accidental Cannibal) by Dale Rutter

Although I didn't read the first book in the series, this could stand alone. Samuel is recruited by the king to join his soldiers. Soon after he and his family move to the capital, he's made a captain. Eventually he helps the king defeat his brother. The book could use some tightening.

I gave this one 4 stars, but it's really 3 and a half. I sent the author a pm explaining some of issues I saw, including grammatical errors.
