⇝Book Theme Song⇜

(link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

Ghost In The Machine by B.o.B  --This song is for Bo…I found him this lyric video…and that's my offering…maybe he'll grant my wish???

Tell me where am I supposed to go?

And who am I supposed to believe.

If only you knew what I knew.

Then you could see just what I see 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜  

4/5 STARS

or B+

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

It's difficult to pinpoint what this book is, genre wise…it's like this mash-up of alternative history/steampunk/historical.  It has an overall dark and somber feel to it, that left me sad…just sad for Wen, for Melik and especially for Bo. 

 

 

It's said, by many, that this is a retelling of Phantom of the Opera. Unfortunately, I can't really say that it does that well, because I don't know that story.  It is very well written, and the narration on Audio is superbly done.  I think…that I want to keep on with the series despite the overwhelming sadness that I felt while listening to this, because I feel a need to know what happens to these characters.

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot:  4/5

Main Characters:  4.5/5

Secondary Characters:  4/5

The Feels:  3.8/5

Addictiveness:  4/5

Theme or Tone:  3/5

Flow (Writing Style):  5/5

Backdrop (World Building):  4.5/5

Originality:  5/5

Book Cover:  5/5

Narration:  5/5

Ending:  4/5 Cliffhanger:  "…to be Continued"

 

Will I continue this series?  I believe so.

Cyborg Fury (Burning Metal Book 2) by Lisa Lace Review
Cyborg Fury: A Science Fiction Cyborg Romance (Burning Metal) (Volume 2) - Lisa Lace

Cyborgs are no longer mere combat machines and are preparing to integrate into society. Natasha is a nurse at a cyborg rehabilitation center who discovers that her father has hidden one in his home - a soldier nicknamed Fury who was too risky to rehabilitate. If anyone finds out, they will terminate him.

Natasha is intrigued by the challenge of helping Fury. As a woman recently separated from her cheating husband, she can’t help but notice his handsome features and muscular build. The more time she spends working with the rapidly-improving cyborg, the more he seems like a better - and sexier - man than her ex ever was.

But Natasha’s ex won’t accept that their marriage is over. He’s not above resorting to threats and violence to get her back. Fury must find a way to protect Natasha and forge a future with her, even though his existence is illegal.

 

Review

 

I just couldn't engage with this one no matter my love for cyborgs.

 

It might be long opening in the mind of neither the hero or the heroine. It might be the fact the the heroine is still married though unhappily at the start of the book.

 

I think I would have liked the book better it started later.

What to Ask your Dallas Roofing Contractors

Finding a good contractor for roofing works can often be a tough task, because the moment you put in a search, chances are that you will be inundated with results. As a matter of fact, there will be so many choices for you, that you will find yourself completely confused. Finding good and reliable Dallas roofing contractors can often prove to be a daunting task, but the fact of the matter is that if you know what to ask, you will be able to make the choice pretty easily.

 

The very first question that you need to ask is how long the contractor has been in the industry. This will give you a good enough idea about how adept they are at what they do, because the amount of time they have spent in the domain will be good criteria for judgement. The longer they have been in the industry, the more knowledge they will have and the more they will be able to assist you with your specific requirements.

 

Make sure that you ask them about what kind of material they will be using for your particular project. Let’s say, your project requires metal roofing materials, ask them about where they will sourcing the same from. Ensure that the material will be sourced from somewhere that is trustworthy and reliable. Ideally, they should have their regular suppliers who will meet all their needs, at the shortest notice. Finally, ask them about how good they are with following budgetary and time related restraints.
