In the Name of Science
Dr. Jenesis DeBruehl once hoped that her scientific research would have positive ramifications for humanity, only to have her work twisted by the evil Dr. Eric Paulson and used to torture innocents.
Seven years later she finally has her own lab again, despite her checkered past. Kincaid “Kin” Gregory is a Morphate, one of the people mutated by Paulson. Now running the lab that Jenesis is joining, Kin is surprised by the lust he feels for the human woman. While Jenesis struggles with her guilt over the role she played in Kincaid’s mutation, he encourages her to use him as her personal test subject. No limitations. With Kin’s body all hers, Jenesis is about to make a whole new kind of discovery . . .
In the name of paranormal readers everywhere…
The Science of Pleasure is a thrilling and fascinating read that brings life to a whole new world for readers to enjoy. Jenesis and Kin are two very strong characters with electrifying chemistry and that grab readers’ attention from the very beginning. The romance is full of tension and passion as these two fight their sizzling attraction and the relationship really doesn’t have great odds of working out due to the differences between them and the past. This fast paced story is full of intense and suspenseful events that keep readers glued to the pages as Jenesis and Kin try to work out their differences and take a dangerous gamble in a move against the evil Dr. Paulson.
Jax / Jacquelyn Frank has created a very intriguing world full of unique and fascinating characters that are similar to vampires but very different as well as having an overall sexy feel to the story. It takes place in a futuristic vision of our world which adds more spice to the story and adds to the believability of the characters and their overall existence. The only problem I had with this story, is that it was over too soon, but that’s okay, I will just have to read the next book – Dangerous as soon as I can.

This second and final volume takes our two adventurers further along their criminal and avenging trail. There are plenty of surprises, bloodshed and betrayal. The comic collection is nicely made and the story moves along at a good pace with large colourful clear illustrations. Surprisingly good stuff and recommended to lovers of action comics with a story to tell.

Great adaptation of Baum's fourth Oz book. It has been a while since I read the original, but from what I remember, this sticks closely to the original book with a few minor changes which are noted in the beginning of this book.
I actually liked this version better than the original. I think the graphic novel format works very well for this story. Baum's descriptions were often a bit vague and/or confusing, but seeing Skottie Young's versions of the various creatures Dorothy and her companions meet on their journey is breathtaking. Wonderful, fantastic artwork. I love his style. This really brings that story to life.
I find it best to read the original and then read these graphic novels, but for people who don't like reading novels or don't enjoy Baum's style yet want to know the Oz stories, this is a great route. These books take the original story and put it in a graphic novel format instead of retelling the story entirely. They can be used in hand with or as an alternative to the originals for people who prefer graphic novel format.
Great adaptation. Amazing artwork. This is a wonderful series.
TITLE: Power Places and the Master Builders of Antiquity: Unexplained Mysteries of the Past
AUTHOR: Frank Joseph
DATE PUBLISHED: 2018
This book is an extremely superficial collection of chapters about individial oddball topics - everything from pyramids in China to unexpla artifacts/buildings in the America's, Templar mysteries, today's megalith builders, remote viewing, power places, a random collection of interesting personalities, alteres mental states, interviews with unusual people and strange natural occurences. This book is not nearly so well written as other books that I have read by Frank Joseph. The topics are not covered well enough to provide anything other than a few tantilizing glimpses of mystery. There is also a lack of rigorous research. In several cases we only have the author's interview with the subject to go on. Several of the subjects covered in this book are familiar to me, but I did find found some topics (usually the longer chapters) interesting.
If you are new to this sort of subject or just wish to read something in chapter size pieces, then this book may be of interest to you. If, on the other hand, you are familiar with the mysteries of antiquity and some unexplained mysteries, you might not find any meat in this book.
