Tıp hakkında güçlü bir kitap yanlış gitti. Vicki Forman, ikizleri o kadar erken doğurdu ki, merhametli ölümlere izin verilmeliydi. Bunun yerine, doktorlar onları yaşamak için her kahramanca tedbiri aldılar. Biri yine de öldü ve diğeri sekiz yıl korkunç komplikasyonlar ve sakatlıklarla yaşadı. Forman'ın çekiciliği, durumunun korkunçluğu konusunda dürüst olmasıdır. Kelimeleri kıymıyor. Kitabı okumak elbette rahatsız edici, çünkü sizi küstah doktorlar ve uygunsuz hemşirelerin kabusuyla yakalar. Bununla birlikte, oğlu için hissetmenin çok zor olduğunu hissettim ve hikayenin merkezinde olduğu için bu garip buldum. Henüz tam olarak anlayamadım ve belki de hayatının ilk yılına çok yoğun bir şekilde odaklandığı için, bir dizi kötüleşen tanı ve tıbbi krizdi. Ama ölümünün Epilogunda öğrenecek hiçbir keder hissetmedim, sadece rahatlama. Belki bu uygun, ama emin değilim. Çok üzücü.
Those of you who love Jade Lee’s writing and have read this book may want to skip this review since it has been out for a couple of years now. The rest of you, listen up. I discovered Jade Lee while attending the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention this spring. She and Anne Elizabeth were holding court for the RT Virgins to explain how to get the most out of the convention. She was the comedic half of the duo, and had us all in stitches. Not only does she have a wicked sense of humor, she also has a wicked sharp writing style. I picked up a copy of Dragonborn, and at the first opportunity, I settled in, ready to be entertained. And I wasn’t disappointed. Jade put a spin on this tale that turned my fantasy reading on its ear. The premise was fresh, the dialogue was sharp, and the story was compelling from start to finish. I hated to put it down. Writing as Kathy Lyons and as Jade Lee, she has a slew of books that I can’t wait to read. I appreciate her eye for detail, her believable dialogue, and her ability to transport me to the world she has created. To Jade’s many fans, you’ll have to forgive me for coming late to the party, but better late than never.
Fairly solid dark fantasy/supernatural tale. Due to a neurological disease inflicting his hand, a famous Rock & Roll guitarist has lost his ability to play guitar. He seeks out a bizarre doctor mixing technology and dark magic, leaving our hero with a strange device implanted in his chest. When activated the device gives him three hours of creative brilliance/power---only trouble is it can only be used 27 times and when it runs out our hero dies. Playing off the old "rock star dead at 27 myth" and Robert Johnson meeting the devil at the crossroads, there's a really interesting world here and I feel like we are really just scratching the surface with the first four issues collected here. I was expecting some more solid ties to the music, but otherwise I really enjoyed this and look forward to seeing where this goes.
