I have a confession to make; I’ve committed every book lover’s worst sins with this book. Eragon by Christopher Paolini is my most loved and most read book to date, and it has maintained its number one spot in my book-loving heart for almost a decade.

My Thoughts: Heads up for new readers considering this series, there are going to be 12 books and each one so far ends on a cliffhanger. That being said, I am loving this series right now, the more I read the more I want to know.
The Unfinished Song Series is set in a very primitive almost neolithic time. There is a lot of violence and women especially, are sometimes treated badly. There are tribal clans with bizarre rules and complicated politics. The fae/fairies/fairy lords etc come in all sorts of sizes and forms and they are mischevious, beautiful and powerful. There is a lot of terminology, including character names, clan names, levels of fae, magic, etc. Tara Maya has thought out every detail extensively and as a result has created a believable fantasy world like no other.
My Thoughts: I was up til 4am reading this book!
10/10 Stars for the opening paragraph! I loved the main character, Drake Sinclair’s, humour and attitude, the first two sentences had me completely hooked. I have to quote them…. ‘My day really began the moment the men shot at me. To set the record straight, it wasn’t my usual idea of fun.’ (From Chapter One: In Which I Screw Up)
I Am Phantom is a fast-paced, well-written, action-packed sci-fi and fantasy, with a good dose of humour. Written in the first person, the reader joins Drake at the beginning of this story in his relatively calm and peaceful family life at home just before he finishes school, and where his only worries are asking girls to prom, the school bullies, oh, and the freaky super powers he obtained during puberty. Drake Sinclair knows he isn’t normal, jumping ridiculously high, super speed, strength and healing abilities are not normal, however he has done a good job at dealing with and hiding his abnormalities so far…. That is before a mysterious figure shows up and turns the school prom into a disaster.
Drake Sinclair then receives a strange admission letter from a college out of state, one with a letter that promises to give him answers about his powers. Desperate for answers Drake accepts, but little does he know, the answers are more complicated and more disturbing than he had ever imagined. Drake is forced to choose how he will use his powers, and whether or not he will use them for good or bad.

The idea has been proposed in a science-fiction book Anomaly (The Soul Prophecies) by Caitlin Lynagh.
The book follows a business student (and keen science enthusiast) as he finds his path in life following the death of his childhood sweetheart. The book discusses the afterlife through science – but in a way that probes genuine scientific questions rather than pseudo-science – with no mention of God. Anomaly examines connectivity, chaos theory and quantum mechanics by intelligent, yet easy to understand means.
I approached Lynagh through her WordPress site. She has a science degree, though not in physics, but has thoroughly researched and understood her approach to the science in her book.
The ideas in her research notes stem from a thought experiment. If you were to eat a chocolate bar of 200kcal you would have to run for 20 minutes to burn off the calories at 10 per minute –…
