Review! Jumper's Hope (Central Galactic Concordance #4) Carol Van Natta!
Jumper's Hope - Carol Van Natta Van Natta



Reunited lovers must outwit a ruthless government agent, or their rumored deaths will be real this time.

Two retired elite special forces veterans discover their battles aren't behind them after all. Someone considers them loose ends, and will stop at nothing to erase their knowledge of a secret government project. Their service left them both with wounds that will never heal. Do they still have what it takes to survive?

Kerzanna Nevarr's elite special forces days of wearing Jumper mech suits and piloting Citizen Protection Services' ships are long gone. The dark legacy of her service forced her to learn to live a quiet life. And she had to do so alone, without the lover who died before her eyes.


Jess Orowitz, veteran of CPS's secret spy organization, Kameleon Corps, made the mistake of trusting his superiors. He's paid a horrific price—fractured memories, constant headaches, and the death of the only woman he ever loved. Retirement on a quiet farming planet has kept him in an emotional deep freeze, but safe.


But now, Kerzanna is being hunted for reasons she can’t guess, and even more stunning, the man who helps her escape is Jess, her supposedly dead lover. For Jess, discovering Kerzanna is still alive is only the first of the lies and betrayal he uncovers.


Worst of all, their hunter is someone with CPS intel and lethal resources. Someone who believes the only obstacles standing in the way of success are one broken-down ex-Jumper and a fractured Kameleon.


Together, are they strong enough to escape death one more time?

Hang on for a desperate race for survival in the far reaches of deep space—get your copy of Jumper's Hope today!

The Smoke Jumper
The Smoke Jumper - Nicholas Evans

I usually only read mysteries so I was not sure if I would like this book. I was worried it would be too much of a romance. It romance parts are small though. The book kept my interest throughout. It is a pretty good story.


Connor and Ed met while training to be smoke jumpers. Even though they were very different they became close friends. When Ed met Julia he was love struck and told Connor all about how she was "the one." Later, when Connor was picking them up at the airport and he saw Julia he couldn't stop staring at her. As they spent time together he found it harder and harder to keep his mind off of her. He knew he couldn't fall in love with his best friend's girlfriend but he was. What he didn't realize was she was feeling the same way, although, she did still love Ed and tried to contain her feelings. Later, when a fire sprang up where Julia was camping with a group of troubled kids in the WAY program, they were called to jump. A girl had wandered away in the night and Julia and another one of the counselors was trying to follow her tracks. The fire was out of control though and they found themselves in the middle of a deadly situation. Ed, Connor, and another jumper leave to try to find them while the other jumpers stay to help fight the fire and prevent it from spreading.



There is a LOT more to this story and it isn't as flaky as it sounds in what I wrote.  I was having a hard time figuring out what to write without giving away too much.  


I also had the audio book, which was narrated by Luke Perry, and I was going to listen to that until I realize it was abridged.  It doesn't say anywhere on the package that it is abridged so I was angry.  I really didn't like Luke Perry's voice anyway,  He sounded like a 16 year old kid.  He talked in such low voice I couldn't hear with the volume full.  I ended up reading the book instead.

Star Jumper: Journal of a Cardboard Genius - Frank Asch

Alex wants to build a space ship to go to the other side of the galaxy, far far away from little brother Jonathan.  Using cardboard and junk he builds his space ship, space suit, and equipment.  Jonathan is sure Alex is building something for him.  When he finds out Alex is not, he is telling Mom.  Alex must find a way to defeat Jonathan's evil deeds. 


I laughed out loud at times.  This story is told in the first person point-of-view which makes is so much more funny because Alex is throwing asides at the reader through the whole book.  He is my kind of kid.  I could place myself in Alex's shoes and feel exactly as he was feeling.  I totally enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Old concept made new again...
Nightmare Escape (Dream Jumper, Book 1) - Greg Grunberg,Lucas Turnbloom,Lucas Turnbloom



In Dream Jumper: Nightmare Escape Ben learns that he has a gift. He can jump into the dream world and see other people’s dreams. When Kaylee (his not girlfriend), falls into sub-rem sleep and can’t wake up, Ben decides he must find a way to save her. While asleep, Ben meets Lewis, a mysterious rabbit who helps him fight evil forces in the dream world.


There are currently two books in the Dream Jumper series. The idea for this series came from a dream that author (and actor) Greg Grunberg’s son had. The drawings are bright and cinematic feeling. They match perfectly with the story’s sense of adventure and mystery.


I really enjoyed this one. The concept reminds me of the Freddy Kruger movies, but this is much tamer - meant for the younger set. Ben is a great character and I really like him. I will try to read the second book too. I also think I will suggest we add this to our elementary school library.

Dream Jumpers Book Review
Nightmare Escape (Dream Jumper, Book 1) - Greg Grunberg,Lucas Turnbloom,Lucas Turnbloom

I absolutely love the illustrations and the color in this graphic novel. It's bright, it's fun and a great adventure for all ages. The pictures match well with the writing and the writing bubbles flow easily and aren't hard to follow.


Ben hasn't slept well in ages. He keeps finding himself in dream's, more like nightmares that involve friends from his school. Then he finds that they aren't just his dreams -- he's jumping into other people's nightmares! It's up to him to save the day.


It is a bit cliche and cheesy but I think kids will dig this up. I know I did and will be recommending it to anyone looking for a fun adventure/fantasy story. Looking forward to the next one in the series.
