My Review:
Reviewed by Guest Reviewer: Fil Piccolo

Two weeks ago I reviewed the print version of Dawn of Destiny, a military sci-fi action adventure story about alien invasion and a crew of men and women commissioned to protect the Earth. You can read my review here.

This time I was given the opportunity to listen to the audiobook version. Since I had already read the book, I wasn't sure how much more the audiobook was going to add to what I already knew of the story. Boy, was I wrong! This audiobook truly impressed me. It was a full cast audio with a full soundtrack. It added an emotional element to the experience of reading the novel and had me fully engaged.

Man, this was a hard week. I worked 10 hour days, helped my kids with mounting projects, put up with more cold and damp weather that felt like January all over again and then I lost my sweet cousin to cancer. She fought hard with no complaints, and my consolation is that she is no longer in pain.

Reading for Autism - April Book Challenge

Hi All! Spring is in the air and the sun is shining a whole lot more here, which means the snow is melting!

Time to try new things. I've decided to help Lindsay from Nighttime Reading Center with the Reading for Autism Challenge. I like to support various causes and Autism is one of them.

I hope you decide to join us as we raise funds for the Autism Foundation. How are we doing that? By reading, of course!

So how exactly does this challenge work? Basically, for every book you read that is in some way related to Autism or Aspergers, you agree to donate a certain amount. You only need to read 1 book as the minimum and the amount you want to donate is up to you. It can be as small as $1 per book or feel free to be as generous as you like.

Dawn of Destiny (Epic #1) by Lee Stephen

ISBN: 978-0978850807
Published Nov 2006

My Review:
Reviewed by Guest Reviewer: Fil Piccolo


Dawn of Destiny is a sci-fi novel about alien invasion set in the future. Although this genre has been done countless times before, Lee Stephen brings a fresh look on what is expected from the men and women defending the earth against such impossible odds. Stephen keeps the reader on edge wondering if our new recruits have what it takes to make it to the next battle.

So many great books being released this spring! How do we keep up? By staying organized and reading what we want. But it's fun to explore new titles too. That's what I'm doing this spring. :-)
