Evolution's End (Dark Frontier Book 1) by C.J. Daniels Review

Picture
Branded a traitor, and now undercover on Mars for the Earth Alliance, Captain Kate Dante attempts to put the pieces together tying the disappearances of Alliance shipping, with the rash of unexplained deaths and missing persons throughout the system. The Corporate criminals she pursued controlled Mars, and welcomed “Earth’s traitor” into their hornet's nest, but she knew time was short - if they doubted her loyalty, she was as good as dead.

Unbeknownst to Kate, her father and brother have begun their own investigation on Mars looking for connections between the disappearances and Earth corporate giant Striker Industries - an act Kate knows could have deadly consequences. Now, Kate’s hope is to survive long enough to clear her name, complete the mission, and save her brother, as events turn darker then she could have imagined.

No one is more aware of that darkness then Kristin Dante, first officer of Earth’s prototype starship, the Bonaventure. Responding to a distress call, Kristin and her crew face an alien horror which threatens to consume them, body and soul - a malevolence that will soon be on the Alliance’s doorstep.

The Dantes find themselves at the forefront of a life or death battle against an ancient evil from the stars that has perverted the destiny of the human race for a thousand years. But will their years of dysfunctional family history be the end of us all?

You can purchase a copy of this book on Amazon.

About the Author
A fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, C.J. Daniels has three novels, and a short story in the Lost Planets anthology alongside legendary authors including Ray Bradbury, Philip K .Dick, Edgar Allan Poe. Born in Brooklyn, but living in New Hampshire, C.J. is a comic book, video game, and crazed techno nerd, with a passion for the classics, as well as everything Star Trek and Star Wars. Originally a marketing guru and now a double threat - pushing the boundaries in genre literature has always been the excitement of writing fiction.

 With the DarkLight, and first two books of The Coming trilogy already available, Evolution’s End pushes the boundaries even further with the beginning of the Dark Frontier series. Two hundred years from now, the Dante family is helping the Earth Alliance push the boundaries of man’s expansion into the Solar System and beyond? But what happens when the dangers of space push back.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  Science fiction is flowing fully through this book.  The story had all the best scenarios and plots that most of the same genre include.   While I did not find anything new as far as the standard sci-fi realm of ideas, this book is original and unique.   The characters are as believable as the story and this is a rather large book at 365 pages but the read is smooth and I was able to finish it in one sitting without feeling the need to put it down.

Living a Mighty Faith A Simple Heart and a Powerful Faith By Angus Buchan Review

27313050

A simple potato farmer with a mighty faith and a willing heart—God steps in and changes everything, just like He can do for you.


Internationally bestselling author and ministry leader Angus Buchan is the author of Faith Like Potatoes and the founder of Mighty Men Conferences, which have drawn more than 500,000 attendees to Buchan’s Shalom Farm Ministry in South Africa, with additional Mighty Men Conferences drawing thousands more worldwide.


Although Buchan speaks to thousands all over the world, he and his wife, Jill, are simple potato farmers who know what it means to allow God to do more through them than they could ever imagine. They founded Beth-Hatlaim, a ministry that aims to provide a permanent home for children who have been abandoned or orphaned, with no known relatives. Buchan travels and leads crusades similar to the likes of Billy Graham.


This 365-day devotional will help you see what God can do in your life when you believe big and open your heart. Devotions focus on sharing your faith, serving others, and becoming a little more like Jesus each day.

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review- I enjoy a good devotional and this one covers the full year.  It has all the basic topics and prayers included to make the book easy to follow and read in daily increments.  Everything was easy to understand and I think that if you are strong in faith and would like to spend some time each day getting closer to God, this book will help.

How to Live in Fear Mastering the Art of Freaking Out By Lance Hahn Review

26403987
Find freedom in an age of anxiety.


Let’s face it: we are afraid. Our world is riddled with fear-inducing headlines, financial meltdowns, family crises, and phobias of every stripe. No wonder the New York Times now reports one in ten Americans is now taking antidepressant or anxiety medication. So how do we cope or even succeed in a world spinning out of control? As someone who has battled panic attacks and anxiety most of his life, Lance Hahn can relate.


In How to Live in Fear, Lance tackles the pervasive problem of fear and panic head-on by inviting readers into his world. In this genuine and practical book, he invites readers into the life of a pastor living with anxiety disorder. Through humorous personal stories—like losing it on an airplane or collapsing onstage as he is about to preach—Lance will win over readers with his transparency. He will also share the remedies that have helped him recover and overcome throughout the years.


How to Live in Fear is a public intervention of sorts. We need to talk about this issue, especially the church-at-large. Millions of people suffer from anxiety disorders, and the church has done little to make them feel normal. Many Christians now take medication privately but keep it a secret under the shame of being viewed as a failure. Lance willingly bares his soul in order to get the conversation started. He firmly believes the church should not only recognize the issue, but also help believers reconcile the guilt of being a Christian while dealing with dread and anxiety


Filled with practical tips and advice, and full of relevant scriptures, How to Live in Fear gives readers the tools to relax in the face of fear—real or imagined. Lance will show readers that while he may still encounter bouts of panic, he has never let his disorder stop him from living a full life.

I recevied  complimentary copies.

Cassandra's review-  The author puts himself out in the open by writing this book and shows others that you can get over your life's pressures without being ashamed.  When he adds in religion and includes a mix of his own true life, this becomes a reality for most people as well.  I would recommend this book to anyone of any age older than 10 that is feeling down in any way.
