Book two in The Dweller Series by David Estes
I’ve read a number of David’s books, I’ve reviewed them on Amazon, GoodReads and on my blog. I enjoy his style of writing, the new ideas he comes up with and the characters, but sadly this one fell a little short. Interestingly, the Dweller’s Series and his newer series The Country Saga start off seperate, but later join together. I haven’t really seen this done before, in all of my reading. The closest would be Lindsay Buroker’s cross over between The Emprorer’s Edge series and her Encrypted/Decrypted series in which the characters are in the same world with some minor cross over.
Synopsis: After rescuing her father and younger sister, Adele is forced to leave her family and Tristan behind to find her mother in the cruel and dangerous realm of the star dwellers.
Amidst blossoming feelings for Adele, Tristan must cast his feelings aside and let her find her own way amongst the star dwellers, while he accompanies Adele’s father to meet with the leaders of the moon dwellers and decide the fate of the Tri-Realms.
Will Adele be able to rescue her mother and make it back to the Moon Realm before the President and the sun dweller soldiers destroy her family?
Can Tristan convince the moon dweller puppets of the error of their ways?
Was Adele’s lost kiss with Tristan her one and only chance at love?
In her world there’s only one rule: Someone must die.
While I was thinking about what to write about on this blog post I was struck by the fact that I haven’t really talked about my up and coming reading. I mention the books once I’ve read them, I post a review, I might give a copy away, but for the most part all my information on books seems to be AFTER I’ve finished with them. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d introduce you to the next 10 books on my TBR list.
Goodreads has a fantastic little statistical section that shows you a number of cool stats about your reading, ranging from how many books you’ve read this year, or ever. Also, how many pages you’ve read by year, and the year of publication of the books you have read just to name a few. One of the really awesomely cool stats that I found shows you the most amount of books you’ve read by any one author. Here’s a few from my list.
Quickly hurtling into the spotlight of success…
David Estes (pictured down below) published his first book in 2011. The first book in the Evolution series (all three book covers are below), Angel Evolution very quickly grasps the reader and thrusts them into a very different take on angels and demons. This story is highlighted with some pretty believable and likeable characters and leaves you guessing as to what will happen.
Skip forward to book #2 – Demon Evolution and while I found this one not up to the same standards as the first one, it still kept my interest enough to pursue book #3. Archangel Evolution was a good closing book to the series, perhaps a little too good. You can find my review of #3 here.
I mentioned in my earlier post on my TBR list that the top 50 or so books are mostly taken up by indie authors. I thought I’d introduce you to a few of them here. I spent a bit of time earlier going through and reshuffling some of my books around to formulate my top 50. I had a number of books by the same authors all in a row, so I’ve now spread them out a bit to make sure I don’t get too bogged down by any one writing style.
Since I haven’t read any of these books yet, I can’t really tell you too much in-depth information about them, but I’ll fill you in with whatever I can. Continue reading
