Saving Amelie is set in Nazi Germany. We follow Rachel, who is raised in eugenics as she learns the truth of her family and the lies about the research her father had told her was admirable. The American reporter Jason Young is interested in her romantically, but for much of the book they have far more pressing things to worry about than their own feelings. It is a story of survival, family, faith, and realization.
The ugliness of the time period can make it somewhat uncomfortable to read, as this is an unusual point-of-view being given to the situation, but ultimately a compelling story.
I received this book for free from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
Gur Shomron's NETfold is a really cool book. If you enjoy sci-fi adventure, this should be on your summer reading list. I would recommend it to those who enjoyed Caprica the tv show or the Ender's Game books.
In the Net, there is a different world with different rules. It is fantastic in it's technological imagery. While at times, it jumps around in a manner that takes full attention to grasp, it's easy to immerse yourself in the virtual nature in this daring science fiction book.
You should definitely grab a copy.

This is the second book in the Sky series by William Amerman. You can see my review for the first book on the "book reviews" tab, as well. It delivered on stepping up an already solid story.
We get some new characters, my favorite of which being Detritus himself, and the continuation of characters from the first book. Nick's development in this bizarre, monster-filled, mechanical death-scape is really interesting in contrast to when he is introduced in the first book. It's a very adult story, and I do need to advise you that the content is not for the conservative reader.
Amerman brings us a cerebral read that demands all of your attention to the story and the Machine. I found this installment to be fascinating. I enjoyed that there was more depth to it than similar-genre books.

Rachelle Ayala is a very talented writer. If you're looking for dramatic romance, this is a great way to get introduced to an author you may have not read before. She has currently made this set of three books available for the incredibly low price of $0.99! These are not short stories; they are full books and each book is full of characters that as a reader, I formed deep emotional attachments to. The value of this deal is huge and I highly recommend you consider this ebook set!
Broken Build, the first book, was probably my favorite. The theme of forgiveness was beautiful without becoming trite in any way.
The drama to this book is so interesting. I finished it fast because I was so into it.
Hidden Under Her Heart is the second and it was good, although I should warn that it touches on some very controversial subjects. I do not recommend it for the more conservative reader or someone who has triggers.
The series ends on Knowing Vera, which wraps up an originally minor character as a whole, loved individual. There are adult love scenes, so be advised. I loved the cohesiveness being added to the separate stories.
My favorite bonus: At the end of knowing Vera, there are recipes! :D
Amerman creates a distinct universe of ground level advancements, custom guns, and a "Malady Unknown." At every turn, there are risks to the characters. It really kept me glued to the page. Sky1: Foundation is set in a post-apocalyptic era, where the only way to survive a quarantine is to move to a higher ground level. Those higher levels are guarded, however, and there is great danger with attempting to immigrate.
Each character is very complex and therefore easy to imagine and relate to. As they are written, they become real. The first page sets the perfect tone for a passageway into the universe you will enter when reading. It's dark, but only in the most fascinating and truth-apocalyptic sense.
The warehouse locations and immigration fences can be somewhat confusing to keep track of and my only wish for the book is that it would have a map included in the book to chart the immigration plans.
I would say more, but I hope you download a copy for yourself. It doesn't disappoint.
