Book Tour Review: Outlaw Trigger (Epic #2) by Lee Stephen


Book Series: Epic, Book #2
Genres: Science Fiction, War, Christian Fiction, Fantasy
Format: eBook (Amazon)
Length: 300 pages
Release Date: September 25, 2007



They say every man has a breaking point-every man can be pushed off the edge. Scott Remington entered EDEN with the heart of a lion. He forged glory in the furnace of war. But on the heels of dawn, darkness awaits. Only when stretched to the limit will a man truly learn who he is. That limit is about to be breached. Lines will be crossed. Sides will be chosen. And faith will be put to the test. Will the righteous prevail?


Well... this wasn't where I was expecting the story to go at all. I think this book may have been the first time I've ever encountered a protagonist's complete transformation. I really liked Scott in Dawn of Destiny; it was really said to see that person die.

Book Tour Review: Dawn of Destiny (Epic #1) by Lee Stephen


Book Series: Epic, Book #1
Genres: Science Fiction, War, Christian Fiction, Fantasy
Format: Audiobook (Amazon)
Narrators: Full Cast
Length: 9 hours & 46 minutes
Release Date: November 4, 2006


Some men go to war for the glory. Some men go to war to escape. For Scott Remington, war is entirely different. It is a belief. It is a calling. It is a destiny. Leaving everything behind—his fiancĂ©e, his future, his life—he embarks on a mission of faith into a battle he can barely understand. This is his story. This is his war. This is only the beginning.

The Dawn of Destiny audiobook project is a full adaptation of the first book in the Epic series. It's not your typical “audiobook,” even though technically that's what it is. When people hear “audiobook,” there’s a certain type of thing that usually comes to mind. Most likely it’s the thought of someone reading a book to them, occasionally with music playing in the background. This isn't that.

What you’re going to hear in this project, is more of an audio “experience,” the audio equivalent of a summer blockbuster movie. Over thirty voice actors played a role in this. This is ear-splitting sound effects, bombastic music, and characters shouting back and forth in the middle of a war zone. This is unlike anything you've ever heard.




This is not a book I would have read on my own. I am not a huge fan of reading action or war-based storylines. That isn't to say that those stories aren't important, or uninteresting. It was more because I use books to escape, and science fiction and fantasy typically fulfill that need. Military-based plot lines are just too real; the death, the loss of life and the incredible sacrifice those individuals can be overwhelming, even more so the emotional aftermath of it all. But running away from things that make me uneasy isn't what I want to do, so I gave this book a chance. Plus Starship Troopers is one of my favorite films.... and we all know the only good bug is a dead bug.

Author:  Tera Lynn Childs (Twitter) & Tracy Deebs
Genre(s):  YA, Science Fiction, Superheroes
Release Date:  June 2, 2015

Kenna is tired of being "normal". The only thing special about her is that she isn't special at all. Which is frustrating in a world of absolutes. Villains, like the one who killed her father, are bad. Heroes, like her mother and best friend, are good. And Kenna, unlike everyone else around her, is completely ordinary— which she hates.

She’s secretly working on an experiment that will land her a place among the Heroes, but when a Villain saves her life during a break-in at her lab, Kenna discovers there’s a whole lot of gray area when it comes to good and evil and who she can trust.. After all…not all strength comes from superpowers.
