book synopsis
CREATE YOUR OWN FUTURE...

16-year-old Ocean Daley needs to get away from school, his seaside town and wasting his summer working for his mother’s irritating boyfriend. When his mysterious Uncle Frank offers him a place at a summer school for a select group of gifted teens, he jumps at it.

But the school isn’t like any other, with classes in hacking, bike racing, psychological tricks and combat. Orca, the secretive organisation behind the school, needs fresh recruits…but for what? Ocean’s father co-founded Orca, and joining the organization feels like a way to honour his memory, as well as strengthen bonds with his strange uncle.

Orca demands each teenager push themselves beyond the possible and in return each student gets an impressive salary, international travel and exhilarating field missions — a double life. There is one catch. Joining Orca is a life-binding commitment to support their ‘noble' cause. For Ocean, it’s the challenge in life he’s been looking for.

Others might call it a trap.
 
my thoughts
While reading it , it kind of reminds me of the Alex rider series which I love , with this said I want to say thinks to Netgalley for giving me a change at reading it and hopeful finding a new series to start because that hoe it reads at the end of the book

note: Why or why did I even request this book, ok so it was the cove but even after I started reading it I went back to Goodreads to see what the book synopsis was and it didn't seem to make any sense at all: my message to Netgalley was this: it didn't make any make sense , it seemed to jump from one thing to next, it was also hard to follow what was going on , like the translation of what he was trying to say was lost

title:The Evil Trance
by Mark Dysan
genre: thriller ( at least I think it was to have been)
book synopsis :
A seemingly innocuous adult film grabs the attention of a young lad. But the store owner, who also finds himself drawn to it, pays the price for it, with his life.
Enter Dr Mitra, a man of science. He finds his very basic grounding in science threatened, as uncanny events around him propel him to question what he has learned and held onto so far.
Gopi, his junior, and Shukla, a private detective, hop onto the scene even as Feroz, an inspector, is busy chasing the many suspicious events from the purview of the law. Murky waters must be charted to understand the myriad ramifications of what they have stumbled upon.
And this is no mean adventure. It is, but an Evil Trance

book synopsis
New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell pens a sweeping romance set against the breathtaking Scottish Highlands, where a young woman holding a warrior hostage tries to resist his passionate seduction . . .
Lady Sorcha Hay is devastated to learn that English soldiers are holding her young brother captive. Penniless, the only way she can pay for his freedom is by taking a hostage for ransom herself. Her captive--a wounded knight plucked from the battlefield--is furious to be imprisoned by a woman. But nothing will stop Sorcha from keeping Sir Ruari Kerr enslaved, even as the sight of his bronzed body sets her mind reeling and her senses afire . . .
With her dark mane and soft curves, Sorcha is everything Ruari has ever desired in a woman. As she tends to his wounds, Ruari fights the intense attraction that ignites at her very touch. But he can't afford to lose his heart to his tempting captor. For when he's finally rescued by his men, Sorcha will pay dearly for her treachery--and loving her could put both their lives in peril

book synopsis
William W. Johnstone.
Keeping the West Wild.

Those Jensen boys, Ace and Chance, know how to ride the savage land. But when they agree to lead a wagon full of women across Texas, they’re just asking for trouble—times five . . .

FIVE MAIL-ORDER BRIDES
A prostitute. A virgin. A tomboy. A woman on the run. And a bank robber’s girlfriend. These five brides-to-be are ready to get hitched in San Angelo, Texas—and it’s Ace and Chance’s job to get them to the church on time. But this is no easy walk down the aisle. It’s one hard journey that could get them all killed . . .

ONE WILD RIDE
One of the brides has a crazy ex-husband gunning for her. Another has a secret stash of $50,000, stolen by her outlaw boyfriend. He’s not letting go—of her or the money. Then there’s a creepy, woman-hungry clan of backwoodsmen who want the brides for themselves, not to mention a fierce, deadly band of Comanche kidnappers. But Ace and Chance swear they’ll protect these ladies—till death do they part . . .

Live Free. Read Hard.

my thoughts
love this series , it reminds me of the Sackett series by Louis L'Amour which is one of my favorite series to read, can't wait to read more of this series and see what happens next to the brothers.With that said I would love to think Netgalley for giving me the change to read and review this book in change for my honest opinion

book synopsis
FLORIDA. IT’S WHERE YOU GO TO DIE.
Welcome to Polo Springs, a sleepy little town on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s a great place to live—if you don’t mind the hurricanes. Or the flooding. Or the unusual wildlife . . .

IGUANAS. THEY’RE EVERYWHERE.
Maybe it’s the weather. But the whole town is overrun with the little green bastards this year. They’re causing a lot of damage. They’re eating everything in sight. And they’re just the babies . . .

HUMANS. THEY’RE WHAT’S FOR DINNER.
The mayor wants to address the iguana problem. But when Hurricane Ramona slams the coast, the town has a bigger problem on their hands. Bigger iguanas. Bigger than a double-wide. Unleashed by the storm, this razor-toothed horde of prehistoric predators rises up from the depths—and descends on the town like retirees at an early bird special. Except humans are on the menu. And it’s all you can eat . . .

My thoughts : WOW this brings back memories of the old black and white SCI FI movies I love to watch from the 50s and 60s , where you have gaint monsters vs the human race , and yes i know they still make them today but there's something about those old movies that I love and this story has that something. Also this one was way better then his last book which i read and didn't like , this one is right up there with is first book i ever read which is called The Montauk Monster, with that said I would love to say thinks to Netgalley and the Kensigton Publishing as well as the author for giving me a change at reading and reviewing Jurassic Florida in change for my honost opinion.
