The Austin Paradox by Willaim R Leibowitz @MiracleManBook @iReadBookTours
The Austin Paradox - William Leibowitz

 

 
MY REVIEW
 
I LOVED Miracle Man, Book I, so I was very eager to begin The Austin Paradox, Book II, and I did, immediately. It’s a story of a superhero, but not one endowed with magical powers. He has a mind, a level of genius, never seen before.
 
This is where we find Robert James Austin’s mindset as we embark on a mission to save more lives.
 
There is a force of negativity and destruction in the universe. Highly efficient and infinitely resourceful, it empowers and leads. It gives diseases their resiliency, their tenacity, their propensity to reinvent themselves, resist treatments, regenerate and defensively mutate. It propels them.
 
Christine, his wife, just wants a normal life, and now she has it…or does she?
 
William R Leibowitz’s novels have a ring of truth to them, when dealing with Big Pharma and the government. So much of what he writes makes me angry, disgusted, and feeling helpless to do anything about it. I love when an author’s writing brings forth emotions that, at times, seem to overwhelm me. And if these books don’t open your eyes and scare the crap out of you, I don’t know what will.
 
I have dealt with the affects of the ‘don’t cure the disease, just treat the symptoms’, mentality of those who want more, more money, more control, more….How about you?
 
The main story, though, is about Robert James Austin and his desire to right the wrongs, all while fighting his personal demons. Robert believes that things should change and wants to help do it, by finding cures and making them accessible to everyone, not just those who can afford it. Man, oh man, if only his cures were real.
 
The Austin Pardox is different from The Miracle Man, but we are still learning about his genius, or now, it is his lack of it. His life is still in danger from himself, but also from outside forces who want him gone. The book may be different, but it is still just as intense.
 
A biological weapon, an apocalyptic Islamic caliphate…I wonder how everything will come together. I fear for the entire planet.
 
I know this is fiction, but I feel it could become all too real. Can we look at William R Leibowitz’s series as a warning?  Think about it. Who decides who lives and who dies? Who do you trust? The Austin Paradox left me hopeful and pissed off for The Miracle Man.
 
I didn’t rate this as high as The Miracle Man. It was a bit different, but I wonder, was it my mood? Did I get dogged down in the details? I wonder if, after reading The Miracle Man, I found The Austin Paradox more predictable. I don’t know, but I find the series to be a special series, and I would highly recommend it to everyone!

Greatest Genius In Human History – The Miracle Man by Willaim R Leibowitz @MiracleManBook @iR
Miracle Man - William Leibowitz
Hi and welcome to my first of two posts for the Miracle Man series. Today I will be sharing Miracle Man and Thursday, the 13th, I will be sharing The Austin Paradox, Miracle Man Book 2.
 
Miracle Man
 
MY REVIEW
 
The cover, those eyes, exciting, alluring, drawing me in, deeper and deeper…
 

WOW! My blood was boiling, my heart pounding, my palms sweating….well, you get the drift. Miracle Man is over the top fantabulous! Unputdownable!

 

OH NO. Here we go…

 

Isn’t there a government organization for everything?

 

The kid, 11 year old Bobby Austin…I hope the parents are suspicious about the Institute’s motivations, because I sure am!

 

As I write this review, I am watching Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon, and Robert James Austin makes me think of Sheldon. Intelligence off the charts and socially inept, in fact he becomes so engrossed in his work, he zones people out completely, drives himself past the brink of exhaustion. But is that all that’s going on?

I can see some badness coming his way. Nevertheless, I am loving this rollercoaster ride and you couldn’t pry the book out of my hands with a crowbar.

 

I believe our medical research leaves a lot to be desired and so does Robert. I believe Big Pharma is more interested in creating a treatment, than a cure. But, he is in the position to do something about it. Robert puts his life on the line for his beliefs. He is driven obsessed, he cannot stop until he finds the answer.

 

Joe, his mentor, is someone you have to meet for yourself. All I will say is…I love the man.

 

The writing is excellent and the story so intense, I keep forgetting Miracle Man is fiction. I want to put my arms around Robert and tell him it will be all right. Remember, he is only 11 years old, and I am watching him grow up.

 

I am trying real hard not to spoil anything, so I am scanning my notes for small nuggets that can convey how much I loved this story.

 

So thought provoking…So many questions come to mind…

 

Government conspiracies, Big Pharma, betrayal, inner demons, greed, entitlement, religion…

 

The characters…all are well developed and unique individuals in their own right. Some I loved and some I truly hated, detested, wanted to jump into the book and punch their lights out! I empathized with some, I wanted to bury some under the jail, but they are all pivotal to evoking emotions of sadness, rage, love, and hope, and have their place in the story.

 

I wondered how William R Liebowitz would wrap up Miracle Man. I had some ideas and he flirted with them, but took them even further than I envisioned. Way to go, William!

 

This is a must read for anyone that gives a damn about the world we live in! Let’s hope some genius reads this book and gets motivated.

 

The interview at the end left me feeling confused. What, if anything, can change the way business and research is done? I don’t have the answers, but I know something different needs to be done.

 

Thank goodness I have book II, The Austin Paradox. No waiting and I am beginning it now.

MY REVIEW

 

After I got over the brutal murder, I couldn’t help but laugh at Paul as he faces his day. He is definitely not a morning person and I can relate. Neither am I. I like that he wears sneakers with his suits. Makes sense to me. I laugh along with his police partners as they poke fun at him, like only true friends can do.

 

Nicole is just hanging out with her best friend, while the power is out due to a snowstorm, when her gift comes to light.

 

HE is pure evil. How does he choose his victims? I’ll leave that up to you to find out, but it is not what your run of the mill serial killer would he. He is brutal, savage. He is a real sicko.

 

Nicole’s ability is developing and she has no idea how intense it will get. She can feel the victim’s pain, live through their death. .I know she will get involved in the investigation and now I know how and why.

 

When Paul and Nicole meet, something zaps between them. Big surprise, right? (said sarcastically) I don’t mind knowing some of the story beforehand,, just as long as the author throws in a surprise or two. I love the scene where Nicole is getting dressed for their date. Simone is helping her and she does need the help. I love her BFF.

 

It’s easy to see how Carl, the reporter becomes involved. Investigating is not a nine to five, sit at your desk job. He goes out in the field. He wants to be a REAL reporter. He even dresses the part in a thrift store suit that makes me think of the film noir PI’s.

 

I love the dark, black as night thrillers and this qualifies. The murders are gruesome, grisly, overkill, mutilations beyond your imagination. Then…comes the autopsy description that takes it to another level of upchucking ugliness. The more grossness Perry Prete feeds me, the hungrier I get. BUT, I do like fun and smiles with my murder mysteries and he does supply that too, along with dialogue and easy banter between the characters.

 

Oh man, the hospital scene. Caught me by surprise, but Nicole is not afraid and I love it. NOW IT’S INTENSE…my thoughts run riot, I want to scream and yell, my heart beats a little faster, my eyes devour the words faster, the pace of the novel picks up, the suspense mounting.

 

The ending…..FANTASTIC.

Murder For Breakfast – Snatched by Alison Golden @alisonjgolden
Snatched (A Diana Hunter Mystery Book 2) - Alison Golden,Gabriella Zinnas

 

 

Here’s a glimpse of the Diana Hunter Mystery series. I fell in love with the covers.

Snatched (Diana Hunter #2)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The covers of the Diana Hunter Mystery series, blew me away and I knew I had to read Snatched by Alison Golden. This mystery novella was a quick and easy read.

 

Diana was a reporter and is now the editor for a crime magazine. It makes sense that she would know a lot about investigating and she gets the opportunity when a murder takes place right outside her balcony window.

 

She’s a bit snippy and snarky with the hunky Detective. And…we do have a friendly little critter, Max, who takes a liking to the Detective, so that’s a very good sign. Me thinks there may be some romance in the air.

 

The mystery is on the gruesome side and it does give me food for thought. Diana may present herself as a suspect by her actions, so that does keep the detective close…and closer. The writing caught my attention early. Even though the story is short, there is plenty of detail and action, whether danger or romance, to keep my interest throughout.

One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews
One Fell Sweep - Ilona Andrews

Loved it!

This series is fantastic! Each book has been a 5 star read for me (fingers crossed for book 4) . One Fell Sweep picks up a few days after Sweep in Peace. Dina is dealing with what she discovered in the previous book when she receives a message from her sister to rescue her from a very dangerous planet.

description

We get some great character interactions and developments in this one and some spaceship travel which was one of the things holding it back from feeling more like science fiction to me. Spaceships mean science fiction! The fantasy and sci-fi blend doesn’t suffer for this though.

With the Inn under siege and Dina protecting her guest, sometimes to her detriment, there are plenty of tense situations and action scenes. The love triangle (that I never felt was a love triangle really but a lot of people seem to) is resolved in a great way. I just love the ending so much!!!

It’s just great! A breath of fresh air in genre fiction.
