The Panther

From Margaret Mezzacapo
Author: Nelson DeMille
The Panther
Another thriller, full of technical details and seemingly extensive research. This follows what seems to be a formula by the author – the daring exploits of wisecracking detective, John Corey, and his perfect, beautiful wife, Kate Mayfield, as they hunt down a terrorist leader in the Middle East. There were parts that made me think that DeMille could turn a trip to the grocery store into a techno-thriller, and parts where Detective Corey’s attitude, which is frequently sexist, grated on the nerves. The book does, however, make you wonder when hearing news about the Middle East.

Vampires and the Amish, sounds bizarre and I was skeptical at first but the story slowly lured me in until I was hooked.  It begins with a young man running for his life and evolves into a young Amish woman haunted by her dead boyfriend and an ex-cop from New Orleans hunting for his wife’s killer.  It is a dark story of secrets, love, faith and a battle to save a woman’s life and her immortal soul.

Brain Jack

From Megan Teen Book Reviewer
Author:  Brian Falkner
Brain Jack 
Brian Falkner’s newest creation brings the reader inside the inner workings of a teenage technological mastermind. Brain Jack is a fast paced thriller that keeps the reader enticed throughout. This book, however, could leave the reader confused with the technical terms and tech savvy jargon. This mysterious Sci-Fi thriller explores a world with vastly advanced technology. In our present world that is constantly fixed upon the newest and fastest technology, Brain Jack amps up our fixation and explores the possibility of taking technology too far. Falkner brings the level of technology to a whole new medium. He brings the reader into a world where not only computers can be hacked into… so can the mind. New mind video games dominate society and produce over obsessive game addicts. These new video games surpass the present day creations like the Wii or Xbox that require controllers and screens. In this alternate world, the brain functions as both the controller and the screen. Your very own neuro connection will allow you to put away your keyboard mouse and even your computer screen and let you operate solely using your own brain. The brain is described as acting like a piece of technology, which leads the reader to ponder the possibility of a brain hack. Brain Jack resembles the very popular mind warping Inception, yet leaves the reader similarly confused. Far from being a must read, Brain Jack is enticing as it dramatizes the growing technological aspects of society.
