Book Review: I Am Number Four

“Three Are Dead”

IAmNumberFourCover

Get ready for some sci-fi that will blow your mind! In this book we accompany one of Lorien’s chosen ones which were sent to earth to someday restore their planet and race. His name is Number 4, although we may know him as Daniel Jones or John Smith. He was sent to Earth along with 9 other Loriens, all who have special powers which will one day restore their earth. Only problem is that the race that attacked and exterminated most of their species, the Mogadorians, are looking for them. Thankfully one of the elders from Lorien cast a powerful protective spell that guaranties that they can only be killed in the order of their numbers. Number 1 was killed in Malaysia, Number 2 in England and Number 3 in Kenya. He is Number 4, and he is next…

I strongly recommend this book to all readers who enjoy action, sci-fi, mystery and romance. You can count on my word that this book will keep you entertained the whole time and that you will want to read it again, just for the pleasure. So if would like to see some alien butt being kicked (as well as some jerk’s butt), then this is the book for you.

Book Review: The Lost Hero

THREE NEW HEROES. ONE MISSING DEMIGOD.

A CURSE THAT THREATENS TO DESTROY THEM ALL …

LostHeroCoverCamp Half Blood is back with new adventures for the fans of Percy Jackson! This time we meet three new demigods, Jason, Piper and Leo. One day Jason wakes up and can’t remember anything, while his two friends Piper (who is his girlfriend) and Leo are shocked. That’s not the end, because several days later they figure out they are demigods and that they must save the world by rescuing the great goddess Hera! Not only that, but they seem to be part of the next Big Prophecy! These three new heroes will meet many new friendly gods and some which are not so friendly.

For those people that enjoy adventures filled with mystery and action, or for those who wish to see new and old demigods kick some monster butt, this is the book for you! I highly recommend this book; it is filled with mystery and action, it will keep you at the edge of your chair, and even stop you from sleeping at night.
