Disposal
Disposal - Tara Tyler

Disposal has still follows Geri and Cooper but the Pop travel which gave the series its title is of less concern in this one. The science fiction here is not very prominent, so you can sit back and enjoy more of a thriller than hard sci-fi.

I was never the biggest fan of the main characters and they still haven't really grown on me after this third book. It was a quick read, which was nice.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Simulation
Simulation: A Pop Travel Novel - Tara Tyler

In 2082, androids are an essential part of daily life. Some are helpful, some would make better toasters, and some are so human-like they’re creepy. Back in Atlanta, Detective Cooper’s latest client has him searching for her boyfriend who she thinks was replaced by a simulation, an illegal clone android. The guy also happens to be a popular new congressman.

 

To make matters more complicated, Cooper keeps crossing paths with his ex, FBI Agent Geri Harper, as they seem to be looking for the same guy. Cooper knows he’s getting close when Geri is kidnapped, but when she resurfaces in Washington and goes on a killing spree, he knows it isn’t her. Now under suspicion himself, Cooper must find the real Geri to prove her innocence, not to mention hunt down the powerful villain behind it all. Never a dull moment.

 

 

After the pleasant surprise that was the first novel in this series, Pop Travel, I was really looking forward to this book. However, as the story seemed quite finished with the first book, I was wondering what was going to happen in this novel.

 

Fast forward two years, and meet all the characters from the first book again. This felt a little bit odd at times, because except for some awkwardness between Cooper and Geri, there didn't seem to be much difference in the interactions between the different characters even though they apparently hadn't really stayed in contact for that time.

 

Which brings me to my biggest problem with the book. It's not uncommon but it manages to annoy me every single time when the main characters seem to be the only people ever to uncover some kind of a big plot/conspiracy, especially so if this happens due to extreme coincidence or sheer luck. I don't read novels like this for their believability of course, but am I to believe that Cooper, who hasn't really achieved a lot in two years time, would just happen to stumble again in 'the case of the century'? And what a luck that Geri was just working this case as well, of all cases.

 

But when I just put these issues aside I quite enjoyed myself. It was a quick and easy read. Near the end I kind of lost some interest, but it was no chore to finish the book. I would read the next book in the series as well.

 

Simulation is the second book in the Pop Travel series, after Pop Travel.

Pop Travel
Pop Travel - Tara Tyler

In the near future, where people can 'pop' to any destination really fast, private investigator Cooper finds out that it's not all pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows.

 

It was a nice and quick read. Interesting from the very beginning, as it starts with someone disappearing while using the pop-device. It's far from real hard science fiction, it's just the teleportation and some androids really and it reads like a regular detective story, which I think a lot of people will enjoy.

 

Although I'd seen the outcome of the story coming for a long time, I actually enjoyed the story more than I thought at first. The characters, although not that original (Cooper is a widower and he has pre-existing scepticism when it comes to pop travel; Geri is the FBI-agent who has to prove herself at all costs; the Creator the genius who's utterly ignorant in all divisions), were quite likeable (or at least it worked in this book for me). 

 

Pop Travel is the first book in the Pop Travel series, the second book is called Simulation (Review to come tomorrow).

This is a book full of short stories about Navy SEALs by a bunch of really great authors. The stories are heartwarming and full of romance and just make you feel good.

The best part about buying this book, in my opinion, is that all proceeds go to the Veterans Research Corporation, a non-profit foundation supporting veterans medical research. It was money well spent.
