Review: Jungle Green (The Balcom Dynasty Book 2) by Richard Dee
Jungle Green (The Balcom Dynasty Book 2) - Richard Dee

Independently published (6th June 2018)

 

ISBN: 978-1983052606

 

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis: 

TC is the wonder drug. Manufactured in secrecy on a remote planet at the edge of the galaxy, it makes worlds inhabitable; and Balcom Industrial lots of money. Then, suddenly, the people who need to take it to stay alive start to die! For Layla Balcom, fresh from wresting control of her father’s inheritance from those who would have destroyed it, the news is devastating. Can the drug be flawed? Or is something else going on?  

 

Review:

I very much enjoyed Ribbonworld, the first book in The Balcom Dynasty when I devoured it in virtually one sitting last year, so Jungle Green was an eagerly anticipated read for me. It was a real pleasure to catch up with Miles Goram again, the central character and unlikely hero of Ribbonworld.

 

The story piqued my curiosity from the off, the author laying a trail of breadcrumbs but there's no hand holding and leading you from one clue to the next; some things you need to work out for yourself! The plot is interesting and cast of characters varied and well rounded - some seemingly lovely, others hateful! 

 

Richard Dee has a wonderful way of weaving a way with words, he's a masterful storyteller and I suspect he doesn't even realise this. When I'm reading one of his books, regardless of genre, I'm utterly transfixed and lose all track of time. There could be a monsoon (or anything else) going on outside, I really wouldn't have the faintest idea! I am really pleased to see a prequel is forthcoming, I can't wait to read that!

This is a great continuation of the series. I liked this one a little bit more than the first book because I feel like it covers more ground and you learn more about the characters. I enjoyed the first book, but it kind of dragged at points with the whole Hopscotch pit stop. This one felt more continuous. There were still stops along the way, but they felt more relevant to the overall story. 

Great story. Can't wait to keep reading.

Rebecca's Redemption (Call to the Jungle Book 3) - Lee Carver

REBECCA’S REDEMPTION by Lee Carver

Have enjoyed the other books in this series although they are also stand alone books, love the locations and so much more.

Three things I like about a book: has a bit of romance, I have to learn something new and I have to be taken away. This book provides all 3!

This one starts out with Rebecca and she's arriving in the jungle to help as a missionary at the hospital center.

Dr. Ed is the main doctor when she arrives and he has two girls that live nearby. There are other nurses and one is hoping the doctor will pay attention to her now that his wife has been gone over a year.

Rebecca just does what she's told and tries to stay out of the nurses way, she wants no conflict.

What I liked about this book was it took me away from the very first page on the plane just about to land and I felt like it was me sitting there as I've experienced small plane travel.

Very descriptive details of the scenery and all the medical things done to patients. Like how they all get along so smooth. Especially liked how they get the things they need and the trips to other areas to enjoy themselves.

Love the books the children get and was so surprised when Rebecca was given a gift. Learned so much about the fauna and nature, animals and procedures.

Conflict does occur when an agency arrives to investigate and you wonder if they will shut the hospital down...

Loved hearing of the scriptures and how that helps Rebecca and Dr. Ed open up to each other about their pasts.

Thought this was the best out of the series but all are very good and so detailed and descriptive.

I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review

The Jungle Book (Disney The Jungle Book) - Walt Disney Company

 

Good book. A nice, simple summary of the film adaptation. Good illustrations. A bit wordy, but still easy to understand.
