Audio Book Review: High Fantasy
High Fantasy: (Book Three) (Sci-Fi LitRP... High Fantasy: (Book Three) (Sci-Fi LitRPG Series) (The Feedback Loop 3) - Harmon Cooper,George C. Hopkins

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Jeff returns to continue with the series as narrator. Cool! I've grown to know the voices he's assigned the characters and enjoy the vast cast he can voice in a book with this many characters that speak. Totally mind blowing! It's great to hear. He also has Quantum's personality locked down, along with all the characters we've grown to enjoy. Another amazing job in vocals and audio.

Quantum likes a challenge, like trying to attack and kill with unconventional weapons in the loop. lol. Him and Aiden have a great friendship. I have enjoyed Aiden, aka Morning Assassin from the first book. I'm glad we get to carry on with many of the secondary characters that are created for in games. You wouldn't think they would have personalities, but goodness do they have them. And Quantum's interaction with them brings them to life.

Frances isn't as highly present in this story as previous one. But she still knows how to play Quantum in what needs to be done. In listening to the audio book, we can hear and get the feel of the excitement of Frances on the pain medicines in the hospital. And see her interact with Quantum in the real world. But with her accident and not diving into the loop it opens the opportunity for us to meet and interact with other members of The Dream Team. We do get to spend time with Zedic Woods. Zedic seems rather cool when we meet him. And he's in a band, which we get to "see". I like him thus far.

Oh, the FDA guidelines for foods and drinks. lol. This is terrible. The government regulates types of food and amounts one should eat. Quantum doesn't follow these guidelines and hears about it constantly. It's a continuous battle for him to get what he wants. It would get on my nerves too. I feel Quantum's irritation when he reads these emails as I'm irritated for him.

Other than fighting with the FDA, Quantum seems to be settling into real life. He's not as sassy. He seems to have found the balance in fighting in the Proxima worlds and living. We get to see Quantum interact with more people, and he does well.

I feel we get a closure to one piece of the story with Quantum. With his Proxima world he's lived in for eight years and finding Strata Godsick. This book also leaves open the next mission started here, finding Strata's son. We are left looking forward to the next book with plans of what they are to do.

High Interest: Book One (The Paragon Series)
High Interest: Book One (The Paragon Series) - Leigh James **** April's Review **** 5 Dreams and Screams
Silicon Valley's rougher than it looks Being a scientist gives Lauren Taylor a purpose in life. At twenty-five, she's the CEO of a billion-dollar biomedical company, Paragon Laboratories. On the brink of a major discovery, Lauren lets nothing interfere with her work. The only thing she's not prepared for? Her overwhelming attraction to Gabriel Betts, the gorgeous and brilliant CEO of another Silicon Valley startup.

Billionaire Gabriel Betts is a successful scientist in his own right. He's made his way in the world by being an early adopter and never losing focus. Captivated by Lauren's brilliance and unselfconscious beauty, he's determined to win the reclusive female CEO over.

But what neither Gabe nor Lauren expect is the white-collar danger that's lurking in Silicon Valley... The danger that threatens not only their companies, but their very existence.

Loved everything about this book. The suspense left me guessing on what was going to happen next. Loved Lauren and Gabe. It like the two of them were meant to be. I really couldn't stand Clive. Can't wait to see what happens next. If you don't like cliffhangers then this book isn't for you? Thanks Netgalley for giving me the opportunity of reading this book.

Cheerleading Can Be Murder (Horror High Series Book 1)
Cheerleading Can Be Murder (Horror High Series Book 1) - Carissa Ann Lynch Great Suspense

Coming from the UK, I don't understand the importance of high school girls wanting to be cheerleaders, but you don't need to know to enjoy this book.
Dakota has started high school and like a lot of girls her age wants to be on the Cheerleading squad. Unbeknown to her there is a sociopath, with their own agenda to get revenge on the school, starting on the cheerleaders.
Sydney has been Dakota's best friend throughout school, but with all the strange incidents going on, their friendship feels the strain.
Amanda is the new kid at the school, living next door to Dakota, they slowly become friends, but with her dysfunctional family and her dating Dakota's ex boyfriend, could she also be the sociopath.
Dakota has to start trusting her new friends and with a new boyfriend tries to find out who is after them.
The main characters are your typical teenagers with their own personal worries, cheerleading, boys, grades but with the added worry of who is going to die. Whilst reading this book, you will not stop yourself trying to guess who the sociopath is. The scenes involving them are written in their POV, which adds more suspense to this book and you know that they are playing with the students like a cat plays with a mouse.
I was surprised at the ending of this book, but is this the ending. No its not, with the author adding another twist, will we know.
This is another great start to the author's new series and the 2nd book is out soon.

My Thoughts......

 

"The Life of Payne" was really one read that was indeed not sweet.  Payden [Payne] was one fifteen year old freshman that had had been treated so horrible by his own mother.  With his mother being so mentally messed up with drugs and the way she treated all of her children especially Payne...all I can say is what a story this author gives the reader.  Thank God Payne had two friends Stunna and Marissa who seemed to be their for him if nothing else just to listen.  I must say that Payne's aunt and uncle were also their for Payne's brothers and sisters.  I do have some mixed feeling for this story because I don't think Payne's mom ever learned from this horrible situation.  Now, I don't want to tell

to much more of this story.  I will say that I was glad that in the end it seemed like the children would be truly taken care of.  Hopefully, Payne who really knew pain in his life would be able to listen to the advice of his uncle and not let all of past life affect him.  "Will God answer Payne's prayer and let him have a normal life, or will he always be destined to live a life of pain?" Well. I guess we can only pray that it will happen for these children.  This is one of those reads that will be with you long after the read.  I was definitely left shaking my head and saying wow what a read.

My Thoughts...

 

What a interesting read about fourteen year old Nyl's and his family.  This author brings in some very good points showing how children can be so mean and cruel to each other.  Being homeless can be such a stressful situation as it was for the Person family after the death of a mom and wife.  This had been a well kept secret but after Nyl who was a HS freshman and star point guard on a basketball team  is spotted in a local soup kitchen...it all starts to come out about what all is going on in his life.  How will this be dealt with?  I liked how this author was able to bring this all out to the readers as she 'incorporates lessons about tolerance, sensitivity and hardship' in her read.    I found the characters mostly well developed, portrayed and believable giving the reader a well written story with enough twist to keep your attention till the end giving the reader a very thought provoking read.  Truly how we treat people is very important in our everyday life's.
