Satellite (The Satellite Trilogy #1) by Lee Davidson


satellite

“Satellite” is the first book in the “Satellite Trilogy” by author Lee Davidson.

Grant has died. And he knows he’s died and woke up in Hell. Or what he perceives to be Hell at first. There are a ton of people who have died and are going to become Satellites. Satellites are pretty much guardian angels who keep people on their paths. Satellites are attached to others who have had tragedies happen in their lives such as losing a loved one or any other tragedy.

Grant’s teacher, what they call Legacy’s, is Willow. She is his exact opposite and they irritate each other from the beginning. Grant was engaged to be married and died of cancer. He can’t let his fiancee, Tate, go and it really irks Willow that he refuses to let go of his memories. The strange thing is, their memories fade but Grant’s have faded at all. Satellites, Legacies and others don’t sleep. They “code.” It’s a type of meditation. When Grant tries it, he fails miserably. Willow told him to go to his happy place and Tate was it. So when he visualized her, she ACTUALLY saw him. It took Willow a little while to be able to wake him up and was freaked out by it but then tells him to keep it to himself and not tell everyone.

Grant begins his training to become a Satellite but it doesn’t go over as well as he had hoped or how well anyone else had hoped. It goes better as he is a natural and it surprises everyone, including his trainer. He made a few friends while waiting around to be told what was going on: Anna and Rugby. When Willow takes him down to eat, he meets her friends and makes a couple more with Claire, Owen and some others.

This was a great book! It pulls you in from the beginning to the end. I just couldn’t put the book down while reading it. I like how Grant refuses to let go of his past but also refuses to let his past get in the way of his job. Grant isn’t passive about the changes and asks questions along the way which really irks Willow. (I think he does it part of the time just to irritate her more than he already does.) This book was a great read and I will definitely keep it in my collection. I will be getting the second and third parts in the future when I can!

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review!.

Die Zombie Die (I Zombie #3) by Jack Wallen

die zombie

Die Zombie Die is the third book in hte I Zombie series by author Jack Wallen.

We know that Bethany, Jean and Michelle were all taken captive by the ZDC. They are all being held in separate rooms. They are all strapped down to gurneys to keep them in place. Bethany is the one that they want and the one they want to deliver her baby. They really don’t care about her, only the child growing inside of her.

This book is in the point of view of the head doctor at the ZDC, Danielle. She was working with Dr Lindsay Godwin from the first book on their cure-all pill when Lindsay was pulled away to the other project. She really had no part in the end of the world to her knowledge. She is working within ZDC walls to try and bring the ZDC down without them knowing. She has experiments locked up in some rooms and is trying to create a cure without the ZDC knowing. But they know it all. She just doesn’t know.

Michelle undergoes “surgery” to impregnate her with infected zombie sperm. She isn’t really impregnated with it but you don’t learn that until the end. The deception this woman puts forth is so maddening while reading this book! But she has her reasons and you learn to understand. Sam, one of the soldiers from the previous book, wants to break out Bethany, Michelle and Jean. So he goes in search of some of his former team members and finds them.

They eventually break into the ZDC and break out not only those three but rescue Danielle who Bethany wanted brought along and the man who orchestrated the end of the world. There is another cell operating in New York and they want the man who started the apocalypse. They plant a device on the back of Sam’s neck that is full of zombie virus and are all too willing to push the button to infect him if he doesn’t deliver John Burgess to them. He does and they release the device from his neck.

What comes next, in their words which are fitting, is a major shit storm!

———————————

This book was awesome to read. Although it was maddening at times because of the depth of her deception and her conflicting feelings, it is a GREAT read. Jack Wallen hit the mark again with this book.

My Zombie My (I Zombie #2) by Jack Wallen

my zombie

My Zombie My is the second book in the I Zombie series by Jack Wallen.

We know from the first book that Jacob turned eventually because of his bite and that Bethany put him down. We also know that Susan was bitten by him and infected. Bethany, Sally, Susan and Gunther make it to Paris. They hole up in a hospital. Bethany is keeping Susan sedated because it helped hold off the transformation for Jacob, so it could help with Susan, right? It’s been a week that she’s been under and she’s found a doctor who lives close to the hospital that is willing to risk his life to get there to help out.

Afterall, Bethany does have the encrypted file that contains the cure for what they have dubbed the Mengele Virus.  Jean, the doctor, makes it there ans assesses Susan. He knows that keeping her sedated is very risky so he wants to put her in a come which he thinks will help. Bethany agrees. He puts Susan in a come and keeps monitoring her. Bethany sets the laptop up to start cracking the file. All her auto-crackers fail and she is able to eventually get into it.

Things get worse before they get better. There is someone else in the hospital with them. And Bethany doesn’t like it. Which is spot on since he’s spying on them. She eventually catches him and they tie him up. Zander eventually becomes part of their team, but only in appearances. Bethany knows there is something up with him but she doesn’t know what it is. Two more survivors are brought into their group and she eventually trusts them. Mika is eventually injured on a run and Gunther is shot twice by a sniper while trying to save Mika and Michelle. They make it back to the hospital for things to only get worse from there.

Bethany eventually pieces things together and learns Zander’s role in everything. He’s supposed to spy on her and the little group and report back to the ZDC. The ZDC does NOT want Bethany and her group coming up with a cure for the virus and will stop at nothing to prevent her from doing that. When she tumbles to him, he states that he hasn’t reported on them since he became part of their group because he sees the passion and knows there is a need for the cure.

They make it out of the hospital and to another safe spot, with Bethany not trusting Zander with the location of the new spot. They make it there and somehow word gets out about where they are. Susan eventually turns into one of the moaners but only stronger. She is ripped to pieces by another super-charged screamer. Bethany failed to protect her like she promised Jacob so this brings her down.

There is so much more going on in this book than in the first one. Jack Wallen’s writing gets better with each book! I HIGHLY suggest reading this series!!

I Zombie I (I Zombie #1) by Jack Wallen

i zombie

 

“I Zombie I” is the first book in the I Zombie series by Jack Wallen.  I first read this book back in 2013 when I first purchased it. I recently (within the last year lol) bought books 2-4. There are still 6 more books in the I Zombie series that I need and will eventually get.

——————

Jacob Plummer is a journalist. A well respected one. He isn’t tied down with any family and no real friends so the newspaper he works for sends him all over the world. At present he is in  Munich, Germany. He is there to cover the unveiling of a device created by Dr. Lindsay Godwin that is going to help solve the energy crisis. Or so everyone believes.

On the morning of the revealing, Jacob is in his hotel room still. He is woken up by a huge blast. Looking out the window he sees nothing but wouldn’t see anything anyways because of how high up in the hotel he is. He tries calling down to the lobby with no answer. There is no news on the tv, only static. He decides to go investigating. Leaving his room, he goes down to the lobby and is creeped out. There are people lying dead all over the place. And it’s much the same when he goes outside.

There’s no one moving or breathing.  If he weren’t seeing things with his own eyes, he would believe they were all just napping peacefully and were going to pop up at any second. He starts shouting and is surprised. There is no echo and no other sounds around. He finally sees a body, and I say body because it wasn’t a living human but the body was moving. The body is covered in bite marks. He dubs this body as Flaky. Flaky ends up taking a chunk out of his cheek.

Jacob runs and locks himself in a convenience stores bathroom after having grabbed some first aid supplies. There hasn’t been enough time that the chunk and surrounding skin should be dead, but they are. He puts a ton of antiseptic ointment in the crater, packs it full of gauze and covers it. He leaves the convenience store and starts following some feet patterns in the falling ash.

This is all in the first chapter or two! There is no way I could describe even HALF of the stuff going on in this book without making this post a book itself. I HIGHLY suggest getting this book and reading it.

————————-

As we should all know by now, I LOVE zombie books. I’ve read this one before but with having the other books in the series now, I wanted to reread it. I had forgotten some of the things that happen in the book until I read it again! It wasn’t a disappointment the first time I read it and nor the second time.

The Exposé (The Exposé #1) by Roxy Sloane

sloane

USA Today bestselling author, Roxy Sloane, has started what I’m sure is a great series with this book. I can only imagine what happens with the rest of the books!

Zoe is a college graduate who is a month behind on her rent. Luckily, she has a roommate who doesn’t mind and covers it. Zoe is going to an interview but she doesn’t have the right clothes for it. The interview is at a highly respected and highly secured sex joint.

Dax Ryan is on his third business. The first two are highly successful and respected and he’s made his third place just the same. Politicians, sports players anyone can apply but not all will be accepted. He needs new hostesses as he’s lost three in the last week or two. Something isn’t right and he knows. Then he gets a letter in the mail stating they know his secret. But what secret are they talking about? Is it about one of his members or is it a personal threat?

Dax catches Zoe snooping around before the interviews. She feigns being lost but he doesn’t believe it. He hires her after her interview but she’s using a different name for her interviews. If anyone looked up her real name, they would see all her articles that have been published in her college newspaper and other newspapers as well. They have a probationary period at the club and she passes it with flying colors.

But what is next to come for Zoe and Dax? And others we’ve met in the short book?

This might have been a short book but it was a good one I was expecting things to go differently than they did. A good read.

Rachel and Charlie’s Untold Story (My Devouring Love Series Short) by Donna Neville-Theiler

dnt

“Rachel and Charlie’s Untold Story” is a short story in the “My Devouring Love” series by Donna Neville-Theiler. I have read books 1, 2 and 2.5 in the series and have one book left to read at the moment. I WILL be getting it sometime in the future when funds are available!

——————————-

Rachel and Charlie are married and have a 2 year old son as well as Racehl being pregnant. Rachel took her son to the doctor earlier the day and he got a flu shot. Luckily she was pregnant and couldn’t get one right then.  Charlie arrives home from work and Rachel tells him that she thinks Brice is sick. He thinks she’s just worrying too much until she takes his temp and it his over 105 degrees.

They get him in the car and get to the hospital. But there are hundreds of people already there. All with the same symptoms of a high fever and vomiting. They think they’re lucky because Brice isn’t vomiting but after over an hour of waiting, he vomits all over Charlie. Rachel takes him and cleans him up while Charlie goes and changes his shirt. It’s finally their turn to be taken into the back to a room. They are put in a room and told to stay there followed by the door being shut. After a while the doctor comes in. An army soldier is with him. Things get bad when an army soldier takes out zip ties and ties Brice to the bed.

They won’t explain anything to Rachel or Charlie and they both almost get thrown out of the hospital. They calm down and eventually, Brice changes into one of those things. At that point they didn’t know what they were. Things go from bad to worse. Charlie and Rachel make it out of the hospital and back to their apartment building. But soon soldiers start ransaking the building. They shoot a man in one of the lower apartments and take his wife as hostage. Charlie and Rachel hide in the storage space above their apartment and are undetected then.

A few days later the soldiers come back and they make a run for it. They make it to another building where a lady takes them to an apartment with to girls. They allow Rachel and Charlie to stay with them. Charlie and one of the girls goes out on a supply run while Rachel and the other stay at the apartment. Only, it doesn’t go so well. The apartment is invaded by the girls boyfriend and what turns out to be the soldiers.

——————————

This book might be short but it has a lot going on in it. This is a sad book but a happy one at the same time, if you can imagine that. I have liked the other books in the series and this one is no different. The book does need some editing done with some misspelled words and missed punctuation but it’s nothing major that can’t be overlooked. I suggest reading the other books in this series.
