Eve, The Awakening Book Review

Merely minutes ago I finished Jenna Moreci’s book Eve, the Awakening. I am emotionally drained but at the same time just want to scream to the heavens.

READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

I have been following Jenna’s vlog for many a moon, each one insightful and entertaining. A lot of my knowledge of writing comes from this marvellous Cyborg. She has just taught me something new again and again. Now Jenna has shown me a new path, how to entertain and amaze your readers smoothly.

I can calmly say that Eve and her creator have made it to my top 20, number one authors of all time. Jenna has taken to the stage with the likes of Feist, Douglass, Eddings, Hobbs and Rowlings. I am glad I found your Youtube channel.

Now to the book. Eve is a creature with flaws and strength, and she is amazing. Someone I could meet on the street, except for one little thing, she is a chimera, a humanovus: the new human. This book is when it gets absorbing and why it is believable. Us, humans don’t like to share the world with someone else, especially, if that ‘human’ is vastly superior to them in physical and mental abilities. In Eve, is where again Jenna grounds the story and shows the dark side of humanity. They hate these chimeras more than the ugly aliens, Interlopers. Have something look like you and is better; we hate even more.

The emotional rollercoaster of this book was fantastic, many time I was on the edge of my seat, wondering where the story was going. After reading so many books and writing a few as well, I can spot usually guess the general plot of the story. In the book Eve, I didn’t predict so many arcs or themes; this caught me completely off guard more often than not. Each of the main characters is fleshed out and flawed, even the attention to the minor or support characters have a personality and sometimes a small character arc. All I can do is tip my hat with this beautiful piece of literature.

All I can say is, wow and thank you.

First page of Kayla: Genius.

With my three five star reviews, I wanted to give my followers a little treat. The first page or so of Kayla: Genius

This was a great short story. The descriptions weren’t too complex but at the same time they weren’t the usual – I guess unique and intriguing is the best way to explain what I mean. There is a lot of mystery in the pages… At first there was just an unfamiliar captive, but I quickly got sucked into the story and found myself reading faster and faster as I became more invested in their outcome and eagerly sought out what happened next!

Great story. Loved the description of Kayla’s powers and the way the tension built, and the use of second person perspective. Looking forward to reading more about Kayla and the other arcs.

It has been a long time since I have read a story written in second person, and I will be honest and say that I was initially put off by this. However, it did not take long for the author to have me imaging that I was the main character, fully engaged in the story and anticipating what was to come. An enjoyable short story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kayla. – very good read.

The black nylon straps feel tight around your petite body. The bonds are tight around your throat, forehead and chest. You are glad that they position the straps just underneath your breasts. It is pointless to struggle. Tight enough for immobility, but not enough to cut off your circulation.

For twenty-one thousand and ninety-four seconds, you have studied the room. The use of counting ensures a calm disposition, allowing the maximum cognition to assess your situation. The walls are soundproof, with no windows, and a poured concrete floor. Not even a two-way mirror like you would see in bad 80’s cop shows. Just a plain laminate table, with an office chair on the opposite side that screams institution, lit by a single overhead light. Mounted on the table are two globes with a wire trailing off like electric entrails. Gnawing on the rubberized mouth plug, you consider the relative freedom of your middle fingers, and the smooth button under each one.

As you analyse the surroundings for the twentieth time, you consider the quantum flow of the room is fixed to four points. The door, the light and the two upper corners adjacent to the door. Hidden cameras are a certainty, it will be considerably harder to conceive of a plan while being watched.

Something about this room makes you curious of their understanding of the FableLands. You feel disconnected from the parallel world of Fablelands where myth and legend run amok. Your Arc Leonardo doesn’t feel fully connected to you. Why can’t you tap into the other place? Was it the Government or one of the Corporations that have been pursuing your group?

For six hours since you regained self-awareness, these thoughts have been percolating in your mind. The full mantle of Leo is unavailable. There is a faint access to some of the Arc, but it feels tenuous at best. Just remember you are the Arc of this Age, embrace that belief.

The infiltration was flawless as it was your brother’s plan. Yet a mistake was made. Someone must have been watching you and your friends planning this task, but who? Unless there is a traitor within your group or your family. Either option seems to be silly.

With a grinding noise, the apparently reinforced door opens. The sound gives it away. Whoever has taken you, they have created a lot of safeguards. They must have a fledgeling understanding of yours and your friends’ powers.

A man in a grey pinstripe suit walks in before the heavy door cycles closed with a resounding boom. From his body language, you can see that there is a self-discipline of all things. Yet a single drop of sweat beading down his cheek does not escape your notice, and this betrays his inner emotional state. Apprehension.

He is a cleanly shaven Caucasian man with an expensive haircut and a scent of rich cologne. As he sits in front of you, in his right hand is a bulging file, which he places on the table in front of him.

“Hope you are comfortable, the restraints have to stay on. For your own protection.”

My Book: The Next Stage.

Finishing your book is only the first step, I knew this but wow. Starting a mentorship with my publishing company Inhouse has opened my eyes up to the possibilities that are out there. From your pitch to marketing your book.

So I have started… It has been interesting, going to events, book launches, meeting with fellow authors and it has been a roller coaster ride.

Only the beginning, as there are so many things ahead of me. I am truly happy with my path!
