This was first published in 1931 and twelve authors each wrote a chapter leaving the later authors to provide a solution to what was going on. In addition having read the novel another author wrote a prologue. There is also an appendix where the authors apart from the authors of the first two chapters and the prologue outlined how

Author: First Book Publish:2012 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.2 Characters: Kinesis (Kinesis Book 1) First published: January 17th 2012Rating: 7.22 stars GoodReads:Kinesis Review: The idea of telekinesis has long fascinated me and to find a book exploring the subject in a real world speculative context rather than within an overblown superhero story was what attracted me to this novel. The story did not disappoint. I enjoyed the concept of the “kinetics” gradually descending into madness and the need for the role of a psych-kinetic investigator to track them down. The pacing of the plot was well done and the climax, though predictable, tied up events nicely before leading

Book Rating:7.3 Characters: Bodyguard of Deception (Book 1 of the World War Two Trilogy) (World War Two Trilogy Book 1) First published: March 28th 2016Rating: 7.32 stars GoodReads:Bodyguard of Deception (Book 1 of the World War Two Trilogy) Review: I was intrigued by the synopsis for Bodyguard of Deception; when it comes to historical fiction, I’m never sure what to expect. And I’ve gotta say, WOW–this novel blew all my expectations out of the water. I LOVED this book; it sucked me in from page one and didn’t let go. I’ve read and enjoyed Sam Marquis’ thrillers in the past, but Bodyguard is a cut above the rest, and that’s really saying something. Without giving anything away, if you love gripping suspense, complex character dynamics, and
Author: First Book Publish:2009 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.7 Characters: Mixed Blood (Cape Town Book 1) First published: December 21st 2009Rating: 7.72 stars GoodReads:Mixed Blood Review: It’s always a special moment when you discover a writer who can actually write. This book barely puts a foot wrong in the stylistic department. The characters exist on the edge of a world that has two faces. The sunny cosmopolitan part of Cape Town where the Euro trash bask in days that seem filled with only promise, and then the other side where there is no promise and no way out. Violence is as normal as bottled water in Camps Bay. Smith captures that contradiction perfectly.
