The Annihilation of Foreverland: A Science Fiction Thriller by Tony Bertauski
The Annihilation of Foreverland - Tony Bertauski

The Annihilation of Foreverland: A Science Fiction Thriller by Tony Bertauski is a gripping thriller.

 

"When kids awake on an island, they’re told there was an accident. Before they can go home, they will visit Foreverland, an alternate reality that will heal their minds."

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review. I gave it four stars.

Lethargy, a Princess and the Pea story by Sonya Writes
Lethargy - a Princess and the Pea story ... Lethargy - a Princess and the Pea story (Fairy Tales Retold) - Sonya Writes

Lethargy, a Princess and the Pea story by Sonya Writes is a different take on an older fairy tale.

 

"Nicholas is ready for marriage and tired of his mother sending away princesses for the silliest of reasons. So when he learns that Princess Penelope has a rare allergy to peas, he comes up with a plan..."

 

Penelope is going only at the urging of her mother for a good marriage match for the benefit of the family. She's not thrilled about either Queen Ophira or Prince Nicholas.

 

I gave it four stars.

Hunt for the Horseman by Gita V. Reddy
Hunt For The Horseman - Gita V. Reddy

I received a complimentary Kindle copy of Hunt for the Horseman by Gita V. Reddy in a LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for a fair review.

 

I gave this book four stars.

 

Sandy goes to the palace Amrita Mahal to visit her large family.

 

There were 150 people visiting there.

 

"Sandy nodded and Megha continued, 'A piece of advice. Do what they say but be what you are.'"

 

"Uday complained to his mother and she cajoled Surya, “Son, by hiding your toy you are depriving yourself of so much fun. Why don’t you share it with your brother?”

 

Surya only smiled and said, “Mother, this is fun. Great fun.”

 

The Hunt for the Horseman began as a game between two brothers where one hid the horseman from the other. It became a family tradition to look for it.

 

"You know us, and you mustn’t count your own family. How much of the family history do you know?” Megha asked.

 

“We are all descendents of King Ravi Shankar. He had two sons, Surya Bhanu and Uday Bhanu. Surya was the one who hid the horseman.”

 

“Right,” said Megha. “Uday Bhanu had three sons. The first two are no more. His youngest son alone survives.

 

His name is Pratap Bhanu and he is the head of our family. We no longer have a kingdom but everyone calls him Rajah Sahib.” He is eighty five.

 

The hunt for the year was cancelled because there were so many people there and it would bother the older people.

 

Sandy discovered the palace was being sold.

Guardian: Where a Dream Is Challenged "A World War 2 Airplane Who Decides To Never Give Up" by Greer Alexis Bacon
Guardian: Where a Dream Is Challenged - Greer Alexis Bacon,TD Smartgrouph

Guardian: Where a Dream Is Challenged "A World War 2 Airplane Who Decides To Never Give Up" by Greer Alexis Bacon is an impressive children's and middle grade story. I found it inspiring and believe it encourages belief in self and hope. Because my favorite little boy liked it, I gave it five stars.

 

Guardian was in an airplane junkyard. "She was a proud little airplane. She believed that she wasn't scrap, only in need of a little care. Always focusing on her dream, Guardian never stopped believing that she would fly again. The rest of the airplanes laughed whenever she spoke of being like new again, and flying at higher heights, and faster speeds."

 

I received a complimentary copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review.
