Although Paul Cornell is your modest English Author you can see his wisdom and understanding of the roles we lead in his short Wild Cards Book. The Fact that a fan favorite graces the pages of this story is of interest to the lovers of the mosaic books. Croyd is back boys and girls, starring in his own right in Fort Freak, we have just a little more of the story gracing the pages of this short story. The Understudy is a young wild card victim who has the ability to mimic the capacity of wild card deuces, aces, jokers in her vicinity. Although in Fort Freak it was not yet managed in The Elephant in the Room she faces another problem altogether. Being accepted for who she is. And finding a place for the love of her life. I hope that Croyd learns a lesson and comes back in the future it would be good to see him find love. Another great book for the Wild Card analogs.

The world changes after a ferocious battle that made the US loose part of the western continent to the ferocious beast, a young girl finds out a secret. Dragons can talk, humans and dragons used to be friends. What she does with this knowledge is amazing, and the adventures she puts herself through outshine the teenage pranks that she is going through, out shines the boy she is falling in love with, out shines the friendships she has, and the pressures of being a young girl. She has to dare herself to do the impossible and find a way to bring an end to the war that has tragic losses already counting on both sides. This is a girl power book, showing that remaining faithful in you is the strongest thing a person can do. A great book to show children that peer pressure is not the only driving force in the world.

A Spear for Allosaur Victor Milan
Ah! The story which i have read the whole book for. Being a lover of Victor Milan’s characters I love our little jaunt into the history of the Dinosaur Lords series. Victor Milan knows full well whom my favorite character of the series is. This little story, gives me the warm and fuzzy feelings for that character all over again. I love the fact it was not a simple circumstance that brought the two characters together, and the ties that bind the two are stronger because of this story. Thank you Victor for giving me a little more about Shirra… and knowing how Karl was connected to her is priceless.

What started this all is what you have done to me. This story is the nerds revenge. What you have done to this nerd that you thought she would not remember will cause you a problem in the future. Just because she is able to manipulate genes for your benefit don’t think that she will be above avenging the wrongs she perceives.

Mayfair
by V.C. Andrews
Having read the previous books, Corliss, Donna, and Spindrift. Mayfair is the final individual story of the Spindrift, coming out after the main book, much of this story is the continuation of the story in the main novel. Mayfair is the one of the Supreme girls at Spindrift academy. This is a short story of breaking the rules, and finding that love is not as impossible as we make it. The fact that Mayfair falls for another older man makes the mother in me cringe, although i see it as good book plot. This is a nice supplement to the original book.

The Chosen (Rogue Angel #4)
by Alex Archer
I am sad that I read this book so late, although it had been sitting on my shelves for a bit. The reader can see Victor Milan’s love of New Mexico, its people, places, and legends. I kept finding that the story was reminiscence of the place he lived. I wanted to ask him, were these places in the book places he loved, places he wanted to leave a legacy memory of. I can see how he wanted to be remembered how Victor wanted to go out passing the torch on to the next to take up the battle for good. This book was written before his illness, and long before we lost him, it is poignant and beautiful. Annja Creed is a great character, a cross between adventure archaeological characters and kick ass adventures. She is happenstance found in the middle of a mystery, and this one is farther than any other. She uses her intelligence and strength to come through this adventure, but it is the help of an old Jesuit priest that helps her survive. The lesson is we need to be careful and not play god. This is a great world trekking novel, with many cultural and legendary story lines.

Review of Raising Abel
by W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O’Neal Gear
Raising Abel is a great story it is a fast paced thriller starting with a dynamic thrill. In general it is about genetics and the potential thought that Abel was destroyed because he was a Neanderthal and mankind destroyed its brother race, not Cain who destroyed his brother. The idea is that if we can genetically bring back Neanderthals would we start to question what is the label of human. Current stories have questioned if genetically the Neanderthal was not a dead end as we believed. It has been found even in Michael and Kathleen’s dna that the Neanderthal genes are present. Michael likes to talk about his occipital bun, what is funny when they run the dna Kathleen had more Neanderthal dna markers. The reader of this story will question how we manipulate our human story, and create a flow that makes the survivors the story we hear.
