Quanta by Lola Dodge Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

The Blurb:

Just because Quanta can see the future doesn’t mean she can change it. She’s spent most of her life imprisoned, feeding her captors information to keep herself alive, but she’s finally reached the endgame and her death creeps closer by the moment.

The son of two senators, Altair Orpheus leads a life of privilege that provides the perfect cover for his side job: working with the rebel Shadow Ravens to undermine the ruling Seligo government. Everything is running like clockwork until he crosses paths with Quanta. As he watches her deftly maneuver through life in a perverse prison, his plastic heart melts. A jailbreak would be suicide, but Tair is willing to sacrifice everything to give her a chance at happiness.

Now Quanta senses a terrifying new future brewing. She and Tair are bound together, but every image of them kissing, snuggling, and acting knee-weakeningly happy is balanced by a much darker possibility. They’ll be picture perfect together, but only until time rips them apart. How can she follow her heart when she’s seen how their love plays out?

 

My Review:

I LOVED this book and fully expect to see it one day in film! Quanta is the second book in The Shadow Ravens series– a series written by three different authors and set in a futuristic world run by a genetically modified caste system.  Much like the Hunger Games, it opens with a palpable tension that never lets up and keeps you on edge until the very end.

I just couldn’t put this book down.

Reminiscent of the movie Edge of Tomorrow (which was originally the Japanese military sci/fi novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka,) it amps up the time travel genre and keeps the reader gasping, “No Way!”

The love story meshes perfectly with the action. Lola Dodge knows how to marry romance and action so seamlessly that the reader isn’t jarred between the two, but keeps turning pages to see how the two characters (Quanta and Altair) can possibly survive long enough to begin their love story–the love story that we’ve been watching through Quanta’s time visions from the moment we first see Altair.

Overall, exciting read and well written. Though it is the second book in the series, it could easily be stand alone. If you are the kind of reader that HAS to read your series in order (that would be me!) then click here to read our review of Cipher by Aileen Erin.  I can’t wait for book three in the series!

THE DIMENSION THIEVES, Episode 1

61QsDf2ch8L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Imagine a world where tyranny ruled– where free will was a foreign concept–a Once Upon a time…

   “Free will had been thrown from society’s highest cliffs decades ago and Force often felt he was chasing nothing more than a filmy ghost of it.”

A world where lower classes, the homeless, and even criminals are droned–made into living robots without a consciousness or perhaps even a soul…

These servants had been people once, before they’d been droned. It couldn’t be so easy to just strip out a soul. It couldn’t.”

Where a ruler could become so power hungry and paranoid that even the middle classes fall to his voracious hunger for more–even those in his inner circle.

Imagine an Earth, perhaps in the far future–perhaps not, where technology and corruption converge, wreaking havoc on civilization.

Something strange is going on behind the scenes, something that teeters between science and the supernatural, when the President’s mechanic opens a portal to another dimension and allows another version of himself into this world.

Meanwhile, Force Steele–in the midst of human oppression and a brutal autocracy– is the voice of quiet rebellion. When the woman he’d hope to make his expected disappears during a period of mass dronings and murders, he risks everything to find her and keep her safe. Only to find that in the end, his father, in the name of the President, has been spearheading the widespread terror.

Misty Provencher’s The Dimension Thieves, Episode One begins in a society that is reminiscent of The Capitol from the Hunger Games. Where the trend in literature seems to lean toward a female point of view, Provencher’s Force Steele is a refreshing male protagonist. He is easy to like and his upper class and highly politicized upbringing doesn’t taint his compassion or his sense of right or wrong. Like a political thriller, the tension is palpable from the start and doesn’t ease up even at the end of the episode.

The Dimension Thieves is a serial novel. (What’s serial fiction?) If you are a fiction binge reader, serials may be sweet torture for you. HOWEVER, the good news is that Misty has six more episodes in this series!  So binge to your heart’s delight!  You won’t be sorry!
