Review! Wretched (The Last Hero #2) Cara Crescent!

 

 

I am jumping ahead to the year 2263 A.D. to a perfect Utopian Earth (says who?) where Chief Donovan Reece his having a very bad day and it's only going to get worse before it gets better! Enjoy and don't forget to add WRETCHED the 2nd book in The Last Hero series by Cara Crescent to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

In 2263 A.D., the fighting between nations led to a single malevolent prime minister governing Earth—a perfect Utopia made possible by voiding the opposition and exiling the undesirables to another planet. A war changed all that. Five years later, there’s one last hope.

 

Chief Donovan Reese, once the leader of the largest rebellion in Earth’s history, has seen better days. Karma tends to be like that. Now a disfigured galactic bounty hunter with a gambling-addict for a business partner, and a band of wounded warriors as staff, it’s no real surprise when he’s taken captive by the Vladsets. Expecting to be killed, he’s shocked when the queen demands he wed her daughter instead. Suspicion is quick to follow. Why does the queen fear the tiny figure hidden beneath black shrouds? Why is the Intergalactic Alliance keen for the marriage to stand? And why, despite his war-weary heart, is he drawn to his mysterious bride?

 

In Vladnese, Celeka means Wretched. That’s how her queen mother sees her—how everyone does. That’s why she keeps herself shrouded. But it’s what she’s done to save her sister that makes her feel truly wretched. While unsure of the Chief she’s bound to, he’s her best chance of survival. Though, if he discovers what she did to save her sister, he might kill her himself.

 

Caught between one Queen’s struggle for power, the Intergalactic Alliance’s mechanisms, and their responsibilities to their respective worlds, they must risk everything for the chance to stay together. 

 

 

 

 

A single malevolent prime minister governs the Earth – a perfect Utopia made possible by voiding the opposition and exiling the undesirables to another planet. Five years later, there is only one hope. With the way his life is going Chief Donovan Reese has seen better days, so when he’s captured by the Vladsets it’s no surprise but he’s shocked when the queen demands he wed her daughter. Her name, Celeka, means Wretched and that’s how her queen mother and everyone else sees her. She may be unsure of the Chief she’s bound to, but he’s her best chance of survival and hopefully he won’t discover what she had to do to save her sister.

 

This post-apocalyptic world is a complex but intriguing one that keeps readers on their toes and glued to the pages. The characters are strong, stand out and easily grab the readers’ attention while they try to stay alive long enough to save their respective worlds. The chemistry between Donovan and Celeka sizzles with lots of heat and the passion is hot and steamy but the relationship is anything but easy which keeps turbulent, gut wrenching emotions flowing from every page.

 

This steady to fast paced plot is full of thrills, excitement and a whole lot of adversaries in a futuristic setting that includes an extremely different Earth, space travel and alien worlds. The author has created a very intriguing world that readers that readers can’t help but be fascinated by and the story contains some world shattering and stunning twist that ensures that readers can’t possible predict what might happen next.

The Wretched of the Earth
The Wretched of the Earth - Frantz Fanon,Richard Philcox,Homi K. Bhabha,Jean-Paul Sartre This was a very useful and relevant read. The message it conveys should provide the US with some insight as to why its policies in the Middle East may be backfiring while reminding nationalists that independence is merely the first step to building a nation, not the end goal. The discussion on national culture and mental disorders were very interesting in my view. My rating is lower than it might otherwise be for two reasons. The first is not the author's fault, though the second is. Prior to reading "The Wretched of the Earth," I had heard very positive reviews from academic and progressive texts. Fanon's book was invariably described as revolutionary or dangerous to the ruling class. This may have raised my expectations too much when I picked this one up. The first three chapters of the book, while interesting, were not revolutionary. I found myself nodding along to each point because I had previously read these conclusions by other authors (both before and after Fanon's time) or come to some of the same conclusions on my own. The second issue was the length of Fanon's arguments. His section on violence was overly repetitive and could have been handled in about half the page length without any loss of force. It seemed that the text was more concerned with the appearance of importance and superiority than with filling his text with substantive ideas. I would still recommend this to anyone interested in international relations or national politics, though it would not be my first recommendation.

What Really Grinds My Gears 5 - Rush Limbaugh Edition

 

I had planned on making What Really Grinds My Gears a daily post, but I've decided that in order for the posts not to get boring and for me to generate my hate with a passion, I'll be making it a post for every Friday or Saturday. 

 

I hate many people in this world. I'll be straight out about it. I'm not going to act like I like everyone or that I think everyone is "special" somehow. It just isn't fucking true. 

 

Recently I have been reminded of one such person in the wake of Robin Williams' untimely death.

 

Rush fucking-spews-trash-from-his-mouth-makes-Layton-want-to-vomit Limbaugh.

 

 

 

This man is disgusting, absolutely disgusting. 

 

After Robin Williams committed suicide, Limbaugh pretty much tried to say that being a liberal and having a liberal worldview was what killed him.

 

I know sounds stupid, right?

 

He was the same man in 2012 who said that The Dark Knight Rises was a politically charged film, and that Bane was named that because Mitt Romney once ran a company called Bain Capital.

 

I guess Limbaugh failed to realize that Bane was created in 1993 before Romney's presidential campaign.

 

 

This is the man who makes racist comments towards African Americans and talks consistently about their "reliance" on Welfare. A man who couldn't understand a black man who called into his radio show once, and told him to "take that bone out of your nose and call me back".

 

A man who criticized white americans for their drug abuse in 1995, and was investigated for his own in 2003. 

 

*************************************

 

A grade A+ dumb fuck and a wretched person.

Reading progress update: I've read 19%.
The Wretched - Victor Hugo

I've been reading Christine Donougher's translation of Les Mis on the Tube and I'm really enjoying it - it's clear, readable and a lot of fun. I'd missed how tense so much of Valjean's early story is, how well described his anxiety is, and how brilliantly paced and dramatic the scenes of "Valjean thinks about whether to do something" are, especially his deciding to steal the silver and to go to the court in Arras to turn himself in and save Champmathieu.

I'd just finished the trial last night, whipped through the super tense scenes where Valjean escapes from Javert, and was looking forward to What Happens Next!!! when:

Part Two: Cosette
Book One: Waterloo

 

nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
