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 –…
What if everything and everyone was connected? From the smallest emotions to the biggest decisions? What if one person’s choices could change the world?
Alice Lynam has been dead for two years. The afterlife is complicated, time behaves differently and the deceased souls have important information concerning humanity’s future. Certain individuals are set to change the world for the better and Alice’s childhood sweetheart, Kyle, happens to be one of them. However, Kyle’s grief has set him on a path that can only bring frustration and unhappiness.
Alice needs to find a way to get through to Kyle to put him back on the right path. And if she gets it wrong, all could be lost.

Ok so I will admit it, I haven’t read many Sci-fi books and I’m not usually hooked into them, but this one is different. First off, it is free on kindle which is nice, but always hit or miss, you never know if you’ve stumbled across a good or bad book. I am pleased to say though, in this case it was the former as opposed to the latter.
I started to read this book and I was completely sucked in by the end of the first chapter. I was so surprised by the first chapter I just had to find out more and easily lost hours reading this book. There are a couple of spelling errors but nothing too major that it detracted away from the story. The world building and futuristic setting are done extremely well too, my mind had no problems believing in Randolph Lalonde’s world.Continue reading
Becca introduces a unique concept within Nolander and as much as there are many loose ends, it is very intriguing. If you can stomach the adult content without becoming too flustered or frazzled, then this book is definitely one for you. I personally enjoyed the fact that Becca wasn’t afraid to base some of her characters on some unsavory people from the real world. We all know that the real world isn’t sweet or sugar coated, so this for me made the story appear more realistic. On saying that, I did bump up the age rating to 18+ because of the adult content.
I also really liked the fact that the main characters who possess powers don’t suddenly turn into superman or superwoman, in fact it’s quite the opposite. The main protagonist Beth, realizes she had strange powers and is located by a group of humans who possess similar abilities. She ends up being introduced to a secret hidden world which already has an established hierarchy. Unfortunately for these talented humans, they are near the bottom. They are almost like hired henchmen, sent out by demons to complete tasks and to do the dirty work, only they don’t have a choice in the matter, they can’t quit.Continue reading
