Part of Summer Reading Goals
A Free Man of Color - Barbara Hambly
I first discovered Hambly by reading her fantasy. In fact, the book was Dragonsbane. But, I think her real love is historical fiction because her historical fiction is better. This was the first her historical fiction I read. It is the start of the Ben January series. 

Ben is a free man of color in recently US brought New Orleans. His mother was a field slave until a white man took an interest in her and brought and freed both her and her two children. The same man paid for Ben's education, both in New Orleans and Paris. Ben is both a skilled surgeon and a skilled piano player. When he returns to New Orleans after a long spell in Paris, he has to readjust to the various codes that he needs to live by. His mother and youngest sister are both prominent in planter society - his sister, Minou, is a mistress to a white planter. His other sister (full sister) is a voodoo priestess, a wife, and a mother. Needless to say, there is some family drama, in particular Ben's feeling that his mother loves her third child (the daughter of the white man who freed her) best.

The first book finds Ben in the midst of a murder mystery where is life is on the line, for better to accuses a black man of murder of a black woman than an white man or woman from society. He also interacts with one of the new American lawman, who somewhat to everyone surprise can read. 

In a later edition of the book or installment in the series, Hambly corrects what historical erros she made here. (Hambly has a degree in and has taught history). What is of note here is Hambly's use of code switching by the characters, the use of color to determine social standing (including shades of black, something that is not always dealt with) as well as women having to deal with a society that constructs them. And of course, the question of race and slavery. It is to Hambly's credit that she never goes the route of the trophe of good master, and even "good" masters are dismissed by Ben as not being moral because of owning another person or treating black people as less than human. 

Ben and his friend Hannibal might, might, be a bit too ahead of their time in being open minded, but both men's back stories do take this into account. Neither man is perfect, and in fact, Ben does wrestle somewhat with one or two reveals in the story. 

Personallly, I find Livia, Ben's mother, to be the most interesting character of all.

 

 

(This is part of my summer reading goals, which include re-reading and reading the whole series).

Download 100% Quality Applications at Zero Cost!

Computer software program, for both private and commercial enterprise use, can be costly and it's one of the first places in which human beings try to reduce corners, or discover alternatives. Sadly, the most normally-used approach is also the most risky one, and could land you in an entire lot of trouble, as well as destroying your pc and costing you lots of greenbacks in data recovery -- if it is even possible in the first vicinity. However cheer up! In this article, i'm going to expose you the way to have your cake and devour it too -- and it will be a better pleasant cake than you could ever purchase. Does that sound too right to be authentic? Examine on, and i'll prove it.

 

The wrong manner:

 

You know this one: all you need to do is ask your friend -- the only who is so top at locating the ones "cracked" programs on the net -- to burn you a CD... Ms office, word, some thing, he will be happy to oblige. In reality, he's simply located this great site in Eastern Europe it truly is were given the whole lot you have ever dreamed of. As is often the case with this type of "free" software program, there is a hidden fee -- and it simply might be more than you bargained for. For one issue, loads of the so-known as "cracked" software program includes viruses -- and nowadays, those are extra than just a prank. A good deal of it's miles distributed with the aid of organized criminal organizations that use the ones viruses to take over your computer and use it as a part of their 'bot-net', a network of computers that does some thing from sending junk mail to cracking financial institution safety -- all without your understanding. Of route, this makes your pc run extra slowly, takes up numerous your network bandwidth, and in all likelihood fills up your disk with incriminating fabric. Even supposing the "warez" you purchased did not include that sort of contamination, an unlawful or unregistered reproduction of business software program can typically be grew to become off, over the INTERNET, through the those who wrote it (instance: appearance up 'home windows genuine advantage angers Chinese' in Google.) believe having your computer shut down within the middle of a business day... Imagine all the computer systems for your enterprise doing so. No longer a great danger to take, right? You may argue this factor, but... Truly, you're legally and morally inside the incorrect whilst you try this. It's simply no longer a great function to be in, particularly in case you're looking to run a business.

 

The proper manner:

 

Welcome to the world of Free Downloader, in which the regulations are absolutely one of a kind.

Downloading software program? Sure -- however you do not should spend hours and hours attempting to find unique "warez d00ds" web sites; the people who write the software make it available proper at their web site. Loose. Yes, clearly unfastened. Free of felony tangles, and nearly constantly at 0 cost. Protection from viruses? Yep, got that. You notice, part of the open supply subculture is to make the code available at the side of each application -- and any programmer searching at the code would be capable of spot an epidemic and do away with it. Trouble solved. Need to provide copies away? Feel unfastened; in reality, it's encouraged. Whether you are the use of it individually or for business, you've got not anything to fear approximately: you are not breaking any legal guidelines. Sure, it's not lots of a problem for most people... But it is better to to be at the proper side than the wrong one. So, what form of software is available? There are tens of thousands of open supply packages to be had, for actually each utility you can consider.

 

Right here are my seven preferred software tools, listed with the aid of category:

 

Net browser: mozilla firefox -- probabilities are, you're already the use of it. It passed 500 million downloads lower back in 2008, and hasn't bogged down for the reason that. The general public truly call it "the arena's best browser".

Mail reader: mozilla thunderbird -- thunderbird offers a large function set, supporting all standard e mail protocols and extensions. It also has a integrated feed reader and spell checking, as well as an included usenet information reader, in addition to a massive number of "accessories" -- freely-downloadable software plugins to extend its functionality.

Office suite: openoffice -- consists of a word processor (creator), spreadsheet (calc), presentation software (galvanize), drawing and graphing device (draw), a device for creating equations and formulas (math), and a database, reporting and shape tool (base). Reads microsoft workplace files, too.

Photo editor: gnu picture manipulation software (the gimp) -- gimp has been in persistent development in view that 1995. It has powerful portray equipment, support for layers, channels, and filters, a couple of undo/redo, and editable textual content layers.

Cd/dvd burner: infrarecorder -- helps absolutely all one of a kind codecs including rewritable disc, multi-session disc and dual-layer dvds; audio cds can be created with just a few easy drag and drops. Other important functions encompass disc copying, audio cd ripping, iso era, and burning photos. To be had in more than 20 languages.

Media participant: vlc -- this is a bendy media player available for definitely any running machine along with portable/hand held computer systems. Vlc plays all of the common media codecs, each video and audio, in addition to dvds and modern day famous divx and mpeg4 films. Maximum streaming media is supported as properly, along with home windows
Media (wmv) and quicktime. Superior features include a skinnable gui and gambling media at once from iso files. Vlc is also available as a firefox plug-in and as an activex factor, making it simple to view any embedded video format through your browser.

Archiver: 7-zip -- 7-zip is an incredible document archiver that supports the subsequent formats for packing/unpacking: 7z, zip, gzip, bzip2 and tar -- and the subsequent for unpacking most effective: rar, cab, arj, lzh, chm, z, cpio, rpm and deb. It integrates well into the home windows shell (right click on menu). 7-zip is also available in 60 languages.

In short, open source software is loose, effective, reliable, and easily to be had. Strive Source -- and enjoy your new-located freedom!

Review: True North (True Born Trilogy #2) by L.E. Sterling
True North - L.E. Sterling

It’s not you…it’s your DNA. Abandoned by her family in Plague-ridden Dominion City, eighteen-year-old Lucy Fox has no choice but to rely upon the kindness of the True Borns, a renegade group of genetically enhanced humans, to save her twin sister, Margot. But Nolan Storm, their mysterious leader, has his own agenda. When Storm backtracks on his promise to rescue Margot, Lucy takes her fate into her own hands and sets off for Russia with her True Born bodyguard and maybe-something-more, the lethal yet beautiful Jared Price. In Russia, there’s been whispered rumors of Plague Cure. While Lucy fights her magnetic attraction to Jared, anxious that his loyalty to Storm will hurt her chances of finding her sister, they quickly discover that not all is as it appears…and discovering the secrets contained in the Fox sisters’ blood before they wind up dead is just the beginning. As they say in Dominion, sometimes it’s not you…it’s your DNA.

1 ½ ★

 

I really was hoping this series would get better but sadly I thought it got worse.

While in book one we still got some plot , this book most of it felt forced and as pages fillers. I couldn’t really connect to the story at all this book.

Lucy was just TSTL the entire book, and really it seemed like she kept thinking she is ever so smart and trying to outsmart people when she really was just dumb.  And that was her without having  Price around and with him. Omg there are no words.

If that is even possible he as even a bigger a$$ in this book and I didn’t think there was anything sexy about him. He was just creepy, controlling and over all a jacka$$.

I had to force myself to finish it which wad sad because I really wanted to like this series.

I rated it at 1 ½ ★ and with hat will not continue with the series.

Review: True Born (True Born Trilogy #1) by L.E. Sterling
True Born - L.E. Sterling

After the great Plague descended, the world population was decimated…and their genetics damaged beyond repair. The Lasters wait hopelessly for their genes to self-destruct. The Splicers pay for expensive treatments that might prolong their life. The plague-resistant True Borns are as mysterious as they are feared… And then there’s Lucy Fox and her identical twin sister, Margot. After endless tests, no one wants to reveal what they are. When Margot disappears, a desperate Lucy has no choice but to put her faith in the True Borns, led by the charismatic Nolan Storm and the beautiful but deadly Jared Price. As Lucy and the True Borns set out to rescue her sister, they stumble upon a vast conspiracy stretching from Dominion’s street preachers to shady Russian tycoons. But why target the Fox sisters? As they say in Dominion, it’s in the blood.

2 ½ ★

 

This was one of those books that I really wanted to love because it sounded different and great. In the end I wasn’t really sure if I like it or not. I liked the idea of the book and thought it would have been really great but just needed a bit more polishing up . I thought it was missing some world building because there is not much , we sorta just get thrown in and that’s it. Not much background or other explaining and it just felt a bit dull. Another turn off for me was the insta lust , really she saw him and pretty much lost other brain from that moment on , I should call it insta stupid instead of insta lust , because that is really what happened . And overall she was not the smartest person and always found the most iodic things to do and get herself and others in danger. And Jared Price, umm yeah I think he was supposed to be one of those “bad boy” alpha male but really just came over as an A&&hole and not in a good way. I rolled my eyes way to many times and other times I was just angry at him. He stalkerish and controlling and that relationship was not healthy at all in my eyes.

I will continue on to see if it gets better and I really hope it does, because I think the story has a lot of potential. Overall, I rate this book 2 ½ ★
