The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life by Drunvalo Melchizedek

Activating the Illuminated Heart and Merkaba Meditation

the ancient secret of the flower of lifeWell, really don’t where to start, so hopefully we will get to the right point and explanation of what the flower of life and Merkaba is and what the spiritual scientist, Drunvalo Melchizedek discovered because of his unconditional love of the nature and all life around and through the deep meditations and years of daily learning and practicing. In the book The Ancient Secret of Flower of Life, Drunvalo perfectly undisclosed and explained the secret geometry and what does it mean for us all as human beings, and what does it mean for our planet and the entire universe. He was studying the secret geometry for over 14 years before he got the whole picture together and presenting it to us along with the Merkaba meditation, which I will explain a little bit more later.

There are basically two books, about 500 pages each (depends on the size and edition), and It’s basically one true story broken into two books.

I highly recommend to get them both. If you are thinking to buy the books, it’s about $15 – $20 per each, and it’s pretty much worth it for the exchange of so deep and life opening information, different levels of being and existence. Fixing all your issues and problems within yourself, because they are created and coming within you. This world is not much about the harmony, but about the balance. Drunvalo Melchizedek talks about the magnetic lines and field within our bodies that can be activated by practicing the Merkaba meditation, and being able to access and open your own heart. They have specifically designed 5 days workshops for that, and it’s the life changing experience that is absolutely priceless. But back to the books.

The Incredible Life of Drunvalo

It’s so amazing to see someone taking the full control of the life and demonstrate loving, caring and knowledgeable human being as we all should be.

In the first book he starts talk about what really started accelerating everything and completely changing his life around. The dream of his was to live out of civilization in the piece with the nature, so he started living the old forgotten house in the middle of forrestry in Canada, to prove the pieceful balanced living, growing the own food and be absolutely independent from outer society. And as he said, it was the time when he started enjoying every second of his life, growing vegetables, playing instruments, meditating, yoga, walks etc. And it was the time when two angels came to him to guide his next steps.


In the second book he talks about the merkaba and activation of magnetic field around your body. Merkaba is the kind of meditation that requires the practice and focus, the long breaths and rhytmic brathing along with many mor esteps and thing to get exactly right. It’s very nice feeling to activate own merkaba and to really open your eyes and mind towards the infinite light and love.

Drunvalo wrote the second book about the year 2000, and in that time in order to activate and keep the merkaba, everyone had to activate it by using those exact steps, and repeating it at least every 48 hours for the length of two years to keep it permanently active, but now it’s already different. The global christ consciousness network around the earth has been completed, and now every single human being is globally, subconsciously connected together. The Merkaba once it’s activaetd, it’s active! Lucky You, you save yourself two years 😀

The meditations have very strong positive effects on human mind and body, balance everything and brings joy and happiness. It’s been proven all around the world in every single country and culture. So why not to start today!

The Last Dough Boys by Richard Rubin Review

The Last Dough Boys by Richard RubinToday’s Book-of-the-day, The Last of the Doughboys, is about World War I soldiers (back in 1918) who are still alive.

They were born in the 1800s, lived through the 1900s, and made it into the 2000s.

Three centuries. So wise…

This guy who is 106 years old says, “I don’t care anything about age. It doesn’t give me a thought, I just live, and age is never in my mind. I don’t know why people make so much of age… I take things as they are, and I don’t let problems bother me. I never have problems… Nothing has ever been hard for me, I just live.” 

Now this is coming from a man who lived through World War I as a
U.S. doughboy, or soldier. He has seen friends blown up all around him.

It was a war that caused many soldiers to go insane, yet he made it through just fine. He knew how to live and let live, and also how to forget.

Remove major stressors from your life. Not all of them, only the ones that don’t serve a purpose to get you to your end goal. Some stress is important, just like with lifting weights and developing character.

Richard Rubin has done something that will never be possible for anyone to do again. His interviews with the last American World War I veterans—who have all since died—bring to vivid life a cataclysm that changed our world forever but that remains curiously forgotten here.”—Adam Hochschild, author of To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914–1918

In 2003, 85 years after the end of World War I, Richard Rubin set out to see if he could still find and talk to someone who had actually served in the American Expeditionary Forces during that colossal conflict. Ultimately, he found dozens, aged 101 to 113, from Cape Cod to Carson City, who shared with him at the last possible moment their stories of America’s Great War. Nineteenth-century men and women living in the twenty-first century, they were self-reliant, humble, and stoic, never complaining, but still marveling at the immensity of the war they helped win, and the complexity of the world they helped create. Though America has largely forgotten their war, you will never forget them, or their stories. A decade in the making, The Last of the Doughboys is the most sweeping look at America’s First World War in a generation, a glorious reminder of the tremendously important role America played in the war to end all wars, as well as a moving meditation on character, grace, aging, and memory.

New Kindle Oasis Review and Costs – Amazon

About The New Kindle Oasis

Kindle Oasis Review and Discount

The new Kindle Oasis costs a whopping $289.99 that makes it the most expensive eBook reader on the current market. One of the reasons for this increase in price is that this reader is 20% lighter and 30% thinner, a vivid new shape, a charger cover made out of leather along with an additional battery.

When holding the Kindle Oasis in your hands, you will definitely feel the feather-light design as it weighs in at only 4.6 ounces and measures 3.44mm at the thinnest point, which makes it the slimmest and lightest Kindle to date. Opposed to the flat and uniformed surface related to the previous readers, the Kindle Oasis appears like a wedge along with a raised bump on the one side that moves the center-of-gravity of the Kindle to the palm of your hand. It manages to stay balanced and makes it ideal for the purpose of one-handed reading.

One of the fantastic features of this reader is the fact that it does not matter whether you are right handed or left handed, the built-in accelerometer will recognize the hand you use to hold the Kindle and will flip the screen automatically to accommodate you. There are two vertical small buttons positioned on the bezel that is used to turn the pages.

The screen on the Oasis Kindle is very similar to the display used on the Kindle Paperwhite. This screen features a 1,448 by 1,072 pixel along with a 300ppi E Ink Carta screen that offers an impressive 60% bump up in brightness. The diffractive pattern on the screen decreases glare and increases readability in a variety of lighting scenarios.

Font fanatics will be happy to know that the typeface known as Ember comes with the Kindle Oasis. Similar to Bookerly, this is the font that was debuted with the previous year’s model the Paperwhite.

Pretty Girl 13 by Liz Coley Review

pretty girl 13 by liz coleyThere is something quietly gripping about this book, Pretty Girls 13 by Liz Coley, even while having a somewhat more low-key feeling overall. Though I certainly wanted to know the details of what’s happened to Angie, the actual playout, of finding out she’s got multiple personalities and the subsequent attempts at merging them, had a slower momentum to it, yet I couldn’t put this one down. I felt so much for this girl and truly wanted the best for her and those around her.

Angie is an unexpected mess, even beyond the direct causes of what she’s been through. With some secrets, even she doesn’t know about, yet a strong drive to work things out and move forward, she is a very well handled character who is completely admirable. Stuck in her 13-year old self’s mindset, but being forced to move beyond that in a lot of ways, she struggles with things it seems like she shouldn’t have to. With the added complication of the alters, who crop up whenever they feel the need to help or protect her, she has a lot of ahead of her but handles with a certain level of grace.

With a hint of a going nowhere sort of romance and a huge family element, this is definitely a realistic, impacting book. Angie’s father made me crazy, with his distance and gruffness, and though her mother was at times too present, the different ways the couple has handled everything and the resultant effect on Angie was a stellar part of this book. As flawed as the next person, Coley doesn’t hold back when it comes to this family unit.

There is a great plot to this one, even if seemingly simple. There are some big twists, some of which can be predicted yet still pack a punch, and others which knock the wind from you. Then there’s the narrative style, which keeps a certain barrier between readers and Angie to a certain extent, even while doing a great job of building her voice and personality. This book is a stunning debut.

Taken by Erin Bowman Review

Taken by Erin Bowman ReviewTaken by Erin Bowman is an interesting book. There were a lot of things I really liked about it and several I didn’t like. It is a tough book to review because it will absolutely appeal to its target audience and there are some great things about it; however, I do feel like it could have been better.

Let’s start with the positive. The world creation here is fantastic. This is a completely believable, well-developed vision of a post-apocalyptic world. The Wall, The Heist, and the entire history of Claysoot are intriguing. Fans of The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, and Knife of Never Letting Go will find elements that they love from those series, but there is enough to Claysoot and the world beyond that makes this a unique experience.

One of the most interesting parts of this world is the slating process. It dehumanizes the people of Claysoot and it also forces the kids to grow up faster. Because boys are taken at the age of 18, they are assigned lovers for a month at a time, hoping that they will be able to create a new generation. No one knows what will happen if Claysoot runs out of men; this seems like the best way to ensure the survival of the community.

The problems in this novel lie in the way that the history and plot are weaved into the story. There is too much info dumping. Way too much is learned from characters telling each other in dialogue and after it happens several times, it took me out of the story. I would get distracted when reading and that is never a good thing. This is the world I wanted to be immersed in, but I never truly was, and that is the book’s biggest flaw. On the other hand, a reader who gets through a few books a year or one who has not read countless stories like this may not be bothered by it. I recommend this book because it does have a great premise. It is just with reservations because if you have not read Patrick Ness, for example, I would suggest you do that first.

Launch by Jeff Walker – Creator of Product Launch Formula!

The Most Successful Business Coaching Program on the Internet

Launch by Jeff WalkerThe Launch by Jeff Walker, a 400 million dollar man by Forbes, is the groundbreaking book about the business and marketing and it contains some critical points of starting the own business using product launch strategies. In the case you never heard of Jeff, I will just in a short paragraph explain who he is, and why everyone who is serious about starting a business should get his book and Product Launch Formula training for 2017.

I know Jeff (not personally) for about 5 years, and I have been constantly coming across his successful launches and more importantly his students that actually went through the entire course and launched their first successful product online. Walker himself wasn’t always rich and successful. about 20 – 25 years ago when he was starting with the internet business from home, he was struggling, but he knew that he is onto something. That’s why the Product Launch Formula is so successful because it’s the step by step plan including minimum budget and investment, even one of the modules he talks about how to even start funding your business to create the first product. Since the first launch of PLF in 2003, he’s been tweaking, updating, and improving the product, being it the thirteenth year of successful Product Launch Formula launch.

The ticket for becoming one of Jeff’s students costs $1999, and it  is 6 months of intensive training and webinars, where everyone has access to ask Jeff any question. The formula is proven to work by thousands of people all around the world, and the number is a year by year growing, and they always sold out once the shopping cart is open. As I keep myself in contact with Jeff, I can leak out the next dates when will be the class opened. The next launch of PLF is going to be on 2nd of November 2016 and the open cart is between 14th – 18th November 2016.

There is also PLF 2016 Live Workshop in Phoenix, Arizona, 3 days of intensive training and taking of notes. This event is starting on 29th of April 2016. Some of the very lucky people who purchased Jeff Walker’s book Launch last year, including me, got the tickets to the event workshop for free! That’s how much of generous Jeff is.

The 10 Dollar Launch Book

The book Launch talks about the humble beginnings of starting an online business back in 1996, up to now, the million dollar launches happening every single day. Even if you are not planning to launch the product or business, the book is just super exciting true life story, going from broke to multi-million dollar business. How the strong will and belief can help to drive you forward, towards the happiness and financial independence, running the own home business from your bedroom.

So the question to ask yourself is, does $10 worth of happy and financially free life? The answer would be for everyone probably different, some would say yes absolutely, and some no because of the skepticism towards everything. All I can say that the book possesses the valuable and key information to create the lifestyle of our dreams, and it’s been very contributional to my business as well. It’s about being able to make quick right decisions in the right time, then you don’t need the whole lot of money to start. And that’s what Walker explains in the “Launch” as well.

Tony Robbins Money Master the Game Audiobook

listen to free audiobooksWe have published the review of the Money Master the Game book in one of the previous posts, where anyone can go and read it. But this audiobook app took our attention. Audible is provided by the, and it is the biggest audio library on the internet. There are tens of thousands of audio recordings of famous motivational speakers, storytellers, but also the books such as already mentioned, Money Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom by Antony Robbins. Such a brilliant book about the real world of investing deserves to be put on an audio and listen to it more than once.

The Audiobook library is based on the membership subscription when you get the first month free trial, and then around $35/month. What got our attention is that they claim to have over 180 000 audio records of all kind. A lot of people are more open to get an audio recording rather than the book, from a simple reason. We are living in the modern time, on the edge of global financial and economic collapse, and people’s focus is on something else than reading books. They basically have no time to sit back and relax for a bit and read the book, but listen the audio while driving to or from work is very convenient for the most of them. People also tend to multitask, doing more than one thing at once, which is hard to do when reading.

Audible really offers what others don’t and have a strong reputation. Go to the following link if you are interested in one month free trial of audiobook Money Master the Game and thousands of other great audios by your choice.

The Book Busy by Tony Crabbe Review

The Best Book on the Business Time Management Issues

Busy by Tony Crabbe BookBusy by Tony Crabbe is absolutely one of the most influential books that had a really big impact on my life and business, but also many others. The absolutely unique approach towards the business success and happiness in life that Tony introduced is just amazing and makes 100% sense.

This is not just another book repeating and copycatting the words on self-motivation and success subject. Busy is not the book made up by someone who read 5 similar books and decided to write the own, which is many times the case. The psychology behind the book is based on the study of life and business of Tony Crabbe himself. The improvement and understanding of what is laid down in the book is absolutely crucial for the healthy and successful business and life.

In a nutshell, the main subject that Tony brings up is, what does that mean being busy, either in life or a business. The majority of people tend to drive themselves crazy and into the mental breakdown, simply by not understanding that it’s not about have everything done! In the other words, rather work smart than hard. Or to do more, doesn’t necessarily mean to gain more.

Because of Tony Crabbe’s background in the business and psychology, and immerse passion for the subject, he is truly qualified to be talked about as an expert.

It’s his kind of a life story and an explanation of what being busy actually means, and what we think it means, clearly shows that from some reason, we have certain things coded from our young age, taught by adults, that being busy is the way to be. Also, it kind of seems like a huge benefit to the world rulers, the men in the power, that if you keep the people busy and occupied with a lot of stuff that they think they have to do, nobody complaints about anything.

Quick Overview

It’s difficult to ask anybody ‘how are you?’ without hearing the word ‘busy’ somewhere in their response. We feel overwhelmed by busyness because of the demands on our time: our inbox and our to-do list are bulging, a huge amount of people expect things from us and our organisations are trying to do more with fewer people. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In reality, busyness isn’t essential. Yes, there is a lot to do, but believing you’re always busy because you have so much to do is both false and unhelpful. Busyness is a normal response to a world of too much, but it isn’t the only response. In busy Tony Crabbe draws on solid psychological research to address one of the great problems of modern life: we’re too busy. But it isn’t a time-management book. Rather than providing advice for increasing productivity and efficiency, it sets out four key strategies (corresponding to sections of the book) for thriving despite of the overload of too much:1. Mastery – to move beyond busyness you need to regain a sense of mastery over your life. This section shows you how to build a sense of control back into your life, take responsibility for making choices and how to set boundaries to protect you from the flood of demands and information. 2. Focus – in a world of too much, success is not about doing more at work but about making an impact. This section outlines three ways to move to a career strategy that doesn’t rely on productivity alone. 3. Engagement – busyness can cause you to disengage from the people, values and activities that are important to us. This section provides you with the three keys to re-engaging with your work and life. 4. Momentum – part of the challenge to moving beyond busyness is that even if you agree you should make the change, you’re too busy to find the time and energy to do anything about it.

Lovely, Dark and Deep by Amy McNamara Review

Lovely Dark and Deep by Amy McNamaraI grabbed Lovely, Dark and Deep by Amy McNamara out of my stack of books on a whim, not knowing exactly the lasting effect the book would have on me. It’s one of the most beautifully written books I’ve read in a very long time.

When I opened the book and began reading, I was hooked right away – within two or three pages. The language is so poetic, and yet it has a choppy barrenness to it that makes it seem as soft and desolate as the Maine forest in which it is set. The book is paced nicely and has a quiet tone to it. Character-driven, the story has characters that are full and developed and very interesting to read.

Wren Wells has had a tough time bouncing back after the car accident that took the life of her boyfriend. She had no will to maintain any of the relationships in her life, so she just…moved away and felt an odd comfort in being more isolated and grieving alone. Wren’s tragedy and grief is so deep and yet you are drawn to her thoughts, her words, her movements. A chance encounter with Cal Owen during a routine jog outside turns Wren’s world upside down.

Cal has an attraction to Wren, but it is not just a physical attraction. The attraction comes from having something in common, from having struggles and difficulties in life. Cal’s story is not the same as Wren’s, but they are able to find some comfort in the fact that each of them understands grief and difficulty. They understand that not all days are great days – in fact, some days aren’t even good – but if they stick together eventually they will have lovely moments, happy moments, moments they can cherish and hold onto and build on. Finding another person – just one other person – to share her grief, even though his is so very different, makes a huge impact on both Wren and Cal.

Lovely, Dark and Deep is a book that I want more people to read. The story is just…great. The writing is so lyrical and poetic and beautiful, and it portrays the emotions of the characters wonderfully. I highly recommend this book to readers who love young adult contemporary books with romance and issues and also books with lovely language.

Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington Review

dead and buried by Kim HarringtonThough there were certainly some great elements to this one and Jade was an interesting character, the twist in this one was predictable and admittedly a bit of a letdown. The clues were a bit too obvious and easy to pin down, and even if the specific reasons for things were yet to be revealed, the actual person behind it was easy to pick out. Still, this was a fast and interesting read with a few story threads mixed together underneath the main ghost element.

One of my favorite things about Jade is her devotion to her family. Even if things with her stepmom are rough, she loves her half brother so much, it makes up for any of her other flaws related to her family. While I felt like the specific dynamic between her and her stepmom was a bit contrived, and not all that satisfying, her relationship with her father was well done and so easy to get and relate to. Missing her mother like crazy and having a hard time just accepting a new mother figure in to her life, and sometimes even holding some frustration that her dad seems to have moved on, Jade has a few hurdles of her own to get past and overall, Harrington handles these in a realistic and engaging way. Still, her connection to Colby shines above the rest of it, from their general sibling camaraderie to her determination to figure out what the ghost wants to protect him.

Also notable with Jade is her love of gemstones and her knowledge of what they stand for and their uses. Though a small element, this is woven throughout the book in an easy way that doesn’t seem too forceful. The stones felt like a way for Jade to sort of stand apart, rather than seeming like a collection just for the sake of a character hobby. The way they give her and Donovan something to talk about, as well, added a sweetness to what could be some otherwise awkward situations.

While some of the characters did feel a little too typecast, Donovan was far different from the typical love interest seen. He keeps more to himself, but he’s genuinely kind, perceptive and sweet. Artsy, yet thoughtful, Donovan is one of those boys who can totally captivate you without even trying, and watching Jade fall for him even with everything going on added such a soft romance to things.

The plot of this one certainly had the potential to be good, but at least, for me, being able to predict who it was so early in the book really knocked it down a few notches for me. I felt like this one didn’t have quite the kick Harrington’s previous mysteries had, and coupled with the sometimes cliché elements, this one didn’t wow me as much as I’d hoped. The writing, too, felt simpler than usual for Harrington, though still held a great voice and vibrancy to it.

Money Master the Game by Tony Robbins Review

Is It Possible To Achieve Financial Freedom?

Money master the game tony robbinsThe Financial Investment world is absolutely undiscovered territory for a lot of people, especially for those who would need it most. In the Tony Robbins’s book, Money Master the Game has uncovered so much of delicate information about how to secure the financial freedom through investing. The book is written in a way that the average normal people could take an advantage of the valuable information that Mr. Robbins had laid down in a 500-page book. How to start improving your lifestyle step by step, even if you think that there is nothing left that you’ve got. It’s the worst feeling when the one thinks that there is nothing coming in the favor, and we just keep repeating the same monolog in our head over and over because there seems to be no way out of the desperate financial situation. Then a lot of people start putting the blame for their sorrow and suffer on everything and everyone around.

Tony Robbins show that the man can improve and half-manifest the life that everyone of us wants, through the focus, belief, action, and positive state of mind. The one without another is useless. Focus without belief and action, action without focus and belief and so on. But altogether it’s the most powerful state of being, and once the one can see that, he/she realize that living a happy and financially independent life is not that hard, the one just have to choose.

To sum up what Tony basically did, he spoke out to the 50 richest people and most successful investors on the planet, to come up with the formula that keeps the rich richer without very little risk. We can think about his book as the updated version of the Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, which is the book that every single successful businessman, investor or entrepreneur read. Therefore, Hill’s book is more and tightly focused on psychological and spiritual aspects of success, Robbin’s book is more from the practical side point of view, which many people will appreciate that.

Debunking the myths from the world of investment and showing and explaining where the majority of beginning investors do mistakes and what they do wrong. This part of a business is full of wrong information and false directions, and only the handful of people seen through and learned how to swim in this dangerous water absolutely safe, and without any risk of losing a big chunk of an investment.


People often ask me to tell them what’s in the book, to make a review of it’s most important content. Here is what I can honestly say. It’s impossible to describe and review the most important content of the book because I would almost have to write a book about the Money Master the Game myself, and maybe to your surprise, there already is such a book, which just 100% justify what I have just said.

FOLKS, Please!

If you are at least slightly interested in about the success and investing subject, just get Tony’s book right now, for $15 dollars nobody cannot go wrong.

Also here down below there is a brilliant video interview with Frank Kern and Tony Robbins about his book, done a little bit over a year ago. This is Money Master the Game Review, and I hope that everyone is going to like that and get the most out of it for the financially secure lifestyle.

The Young Elites by Marie Lu Review

The young elites by Marie LuHave you ever wanted to know the villain’s side of the story? Do you ever wonder what motivates the “bad” characters in books? Well, if that is something you have been looking for, then look no further. Marie Lu has managed to tell a magnificent and dark story from alternating antagonist points of view.

Yes, yes, I know . . . if the main character is evil, she is still a protagonist. I’m throwing that rule out the window. Adelina is one of the main characters of the story, but right from the beginning, the reader can tell there is something off about her. Right away we begin questioning her motives and inner desires, and I LOVE IT!! Let me set up the premise for you. When Adelina was a little girl a blood fever swept through the land. This fever killed many, but those it did not kill it left with markings and some were left with powers–powers that no one knew how to control, or had even heard about before, and this scared the general population. In this magnificent and dark fantasy world, magic is considered evil and those who show signs of possessing it are captured and eventually killed. This story sucked me right in from the first line, and it kept me reading way into the wee hours of the night.

What I like the best about this book is that Marie Lu nailed the sympathetic antagonist. I feel for Adelina. I struggle along with her, and eventually, I started questioning what is good and evil. This questioning is exactly why I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. Any author that can swing me into questioning the fine line between good and evil, right and wrong, or justice and revenge has my full attention. I have always loved books the push the boundaries and make me question my own beliefs. That’s what books are here for, to expand our minds and push on the borders of our comfort zones. Not only that, but there is so much character development throughout the novel, and every single character develops–not just the ones we get points of view from.

I’d also like to mention that Adelina is not the only strong female character in this book. Marie Lu has managed to give us multiple kick-ass, self-reliant females, and from the way this book ends I have a feeling we will be seeing more in the second book. This novel deserves to be read over and over again. I would love to discuss more of the complexities of Adelina, but I don’t believe in spoiling the reader’s experience. I believe that this book is just that–an experience.

Marie Lu created a beautifully dark and mysterious fantasy world with amazing characters. Lu pushes the boundaries of readers beliefs just enough to make them uncomfortable and then comforts them with her words. I definitely give this book 5 out of 5 stars and I cannot wait to see how this series progresses. Will Lu push the readers even further into questioning good and evil, or will she make clear cut lines and the reader must decide who they will back? Either way, I look forward to finding out.

By the way, if you haven’t read Marie Lu’s Legend series, do it….do it now! The alternating points of view are fantastic, and in that series, she also questions which side is right or wrong. Who really is the good or evil side when it comes to war?

Talon by Julie Kagawa Review

talon by Julie Kagawa bookI am a huge fan of Julie Kagawa. As soon as this book was available for pre-order, I jumped all over it. Talon is the best of both worlds, Julie Kagawa and DRAGONS! Kagawa has managed to take Dragons, The Order of Saint George, and California and make them totally familiar to a Midwestern person like me. I am familiar with The Order of Saint George, so seeing all the liberties and history building that Kagawa has done is fascinating.

In Talon book by Julie Kagawa, dragons live among us, but they have to remain hidden because of the Order of Saint George–whom throughout history have taken it upon themselves to execute dragons. The Order has one goal in life, and that is to completely rid the world of all dragons . . . at all costs. In turn, the dragons are secluded, hidden from the rest of the world until the turn 16. When they turn 16, they are put in the human world, with a monitor, and assimilated to the human world and how to contain their inner beasts.  Dante and Ember are rare–they are the only twin hatchlings in Dragon history. This adds an interesting dynamic to the story when Ember tries to push the limits that bind her to servitude with Talon while Dante follows every rule to the letter. If the Dragons ever decide to defect from Talon and not follow their rules, they are considered rogue, and Talon does whatever possible to hunt them down and exterminate them. See, Talon is the dragon governing the body. The hatchlings begin training with Talon, and will be assigned to jobs that Talon has deemed appropriate for their particular skill set. This fun fact will come into play when you meet another point of view character, Cobalt.

Garret is the other point of view we get to experience the story with. Garret is a hardcore soldier of the Order of Saint George, and his entire existence has been to eliminate dragons at any cost. His family was killed by dragons, and the Order used his need for revenge as motivation to make him the super soldier they need. When Ember and Garret meet there is a connection. They both try to fight it, because of their training and education, but by the end of the novel we can feel that keeping them apart is going to be an impossible task.

Some of my favorite moments from this novel come from Ember describing what it is like to fly and then comparing it to surfing. I enjoyed being in Ember and Garret’s heads. Feeling their inner struggles was so powerful, and great to see on paper. I remember being a teenager and wanting to question things but never knowing when the right time was to ask the important questions. I’m so glad to see that between the covers of this book some of these questions are being asked. I really enjoy how strong of a character Ember is, and how her entire purpose of existence has nothing to do with falling in love.

Like I said earlier, I am a complete and total fangirl of Julie Kagawa. I would even read her grocery list. Kagawa once again delivers a great story and has managed to push several buttons on the theme machine. She makes you question the things you have been taught and makes you step outside of your comfort zone and question your beliefs. In a time when the world needs books with diversity and to teach young adults how to become their own person, Kagawa delivers and I cannot wait for the sequel. I definitely give this book five out of five stars.

P.S. Did you know that this series got picked up for movie rights before it was even published? If you haven’t read anything else by Kagawa, I suggest you take a look at her faerie series–The Iron Fey, and her vampire series–The Blood of Eden. Also, every single one of Kagawa’s books presents, at least, one fierce female protagonist. Kagawa really knows how to deliver when it comes to strong females.

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby Review

Bone Gap by Laura RubyThis book came at the right time for me, and I would like to thank the marketing team and, of course, Laura Ruby for that! Just when I was in a funk and wondering if the world would ever not be gray, Bone Gap by Laura Ruby transported me to the exact place I wanted to be—the Midwest in the summer. Summertime in the Midwest is intoxicating and Ruby makes every word another drop to drink. The fair, the stickiness of the humidity in August, and the small farming community that is always gossiping– each one of these feelings didn’t need to be told to me — I felt them with the characters. I could feel the heaviness of the air in my lungs as Finn rides the horse in the late evening. I could see the lightning bugs flickering their nightly conversation as twilight turned to dusk. I guess what I’m trying to say is that this Hoosier girl really felt the setting.

And the characters . . . they all feel so genuine and real like they belong exactly where they are in this story, in this town, at this time. They don’t feel transplanted . . . even Roza felt like she belonged there with the O’Sullivan boys. I very much applaud Ruby for Finn’s character. He is a little slower, describes things and people differently, and evolves throughout the book. Not only does he become a better person, but he becomes more confident in himself and realizes he isn’t stupid just different. Every single character has a reason for being mentioned, and if you pay attention little seeds are dropped everywhere about what really happened to Roza. I also really enjoyed the sprinkling of Polish, and especially how it isn’t italicized. Just like in code-switching, the switch between a home language and a new one in the same sentence, the Polish words felt natural and not in need of italicization. The Polish language isn’t an aside to Roza, it’s a part of her and the lack of italicization really shows this.

If you haven’t read the book, and you want to remain spoiler free–then stop here. I would give this book TEN STARS if I could, but since I can’t, I give it FIVE out of FIVE GOLD STARS! This book deserves multiple readings. I’m on my third time, and I keep finding new things to love. Plus, this cover is gorgeous and the font is divine– on the cover and inside the book. I recommend this book for ages 12 and up.

From the very first chapter we are introduced to how fast and lush the fields are growing in Bone Gap. This little seed shows us the beginning of the Persephone retelling. Yep, Ruby has even said she didn’t know she was retelling Persephone’s plight until she had finished the first draft. Jane Resh Thomas always says that writers write behind their own backs. Thank all that is good and holy for Laura Ruby writing behind her back, because this is one of the creepiest retellings ever. Hades has taken on a modern kind of kidnapping—the old chap is staying up to date with his methods—houses with unbreakable glass, a cable box with all the shows and movies a person could ever want, and the comforts of modern textiles. Hades’ creepiness level goes higher every single time he speaks to Roza. The last thing I’m going to say about this is to keep an eye or ear on the talk about the fields. Listen to the conversations about how badly the crops do after Roza is taken. One prime example is the garden in the back of the O’Sullivan house. It was fertile and happy, just like the boys, when Roza was there. As soon as she leaves, the boys and the garden go back to the shambles they were before her arrival.

The cornfields: they are just as big of a character as Finn is in the book. THIS MAKES THIS HOOSIER SO FREAKING HAPPY!! I’m one of those people that are comforted by the cornfields and the conversations they have when they wind blows, but I know those who fear the fields because of “Children of the Corn” and the darkness that envelops you as soon as you step in three feet. Miguel and Finn listen to the corn, but maybe they should have paid a little bit more attention. Another thing I really liked is when Miguel talks about the scarecrows, “—weren’t made to scare the crows, they were made to scare the corn.” This line adds like twelve points to the creepiness meter, which was already off the charts.

I can’t say enough good things about this book. The interweaving story-lines, Ruby’s lyrical language, and the setting hooked me from the first page and didn’t let go until I finished the last page. Laura Ruby deserves a standing ovation and a new kitten for this fantastic story. I give it Five out of Five stars and recommend it to anyone ages 12 and up.
