Life On Base: Quantico Cave Review

Life on Base: Quantico Cave

By Tom and Nancy Wise

For Stephen, his life on base is much the same as most other children’s. The difference is in the details. Look both ways before crossing a tank path and be sure to check if the spent bullet casings you find in the long-abandoned trenches are actually empty. Sports stop at the sound of the evening trumpet call as he and his friends stand at attention while the flag is retired. Quantico Cave is a story of friendship and competition, and when Stephen meets up with a friend he once knew at a previous home station, the contest hits a whole new level that places everyone at risk.

...........................................................................
MY HONEST REVIEW OF Life on Base

Steven has been a military brat his entire life, and life on the base is the only life he’s ever known. His latest home base is at Quantico. After a storm moves through the area, Steven finds a cave, which will later cause a climactic event to happen involving him and his friends.


I have never been an army brat, but was always fascinated with that type of life. This gave me an inside view of the upside of growing up in that environment, as well as the downside. The characters were fun to get to know. I really enjoyed how the author captured the nature and activities of boys of that age group. Growing up a tomboy myself, it brought back those memories of my own. This is a read all adolescents would enjoy.

The Creature of the Wildcard Review

The Creature of the Wildcard

By John Fischer

Alaric Fischer was born into the promise of eternity. An artist and highly advanced dreamer of things to come, he built a small empire around his artwork. Yet hungry for things that come from beyond, he loses sight of the natural world. Entering the road to tame his delusions, he is faced with the challenge of altering the course of reality. The opponent of death becomes a matter of reinventing the wheel on the level of a cosmic chess board. Coming closer to define an alternative to existence, Alaric discovers he is the artificial intelligence of an author gone mad with the game of God. What comes of these dreams that soar through the soul of devouring one meager life may have a hunger for all of mankind. He who writes of the weather controls the course of human evolution.
...........................................................................
MY HONEST REVIEW OF The Creature of the Wildcard

This was the most confusing book I have ever read. The story follows Alaric Fischer as he dissects his dreams and imaginations. I couldn’t tell if he was a real person, or just a type of existence of some sort, but I think that’s the way the author intended. He was vain, and had a God-complex, to say the least. He often compared himself to Alice finding herself in the looking glass. At least that I understood!


The author used vivid descriptions throughout, and I liked that. But there were so many allegories that my eyes glazed many times over. It made the read go from vaguely interesting to boring very quickly. Once more characters were introduced, it gave me motivation to read to the end. I would have to say that the last third of the book is what made it a story worth reading.

Stealing From ISIS Review






Stealing from ISIS: An Ex-SAS Special forces mercenary short story

By Erik MacKenzie

A former Special Air Service soldier now a mercenary is hired by an Iranian businessman to find hidden ancient Persian gold in ISIS territory.  

...........................................................................
MY HONEST REVIEW OF Stealing from ISIS

Richard almost died in Afghanistan a few months ago, and thought he’d never go back. Nonetheless, being an adrenaline junkie, and the lure of fifteen million in pay, has him returning to ISIS territory. Richard knows that taking on such a dangerous job could be the last journey he will ever take. But then again, haven’t they all?

I like reading stories that have strong characters, and this one fit the bill. Even though it was very short, I still was able to grasp the depth of the main character. The story was continuous action, with an unexpected twist at the end. The author wrote in a way that felt like you were actually there. It had me anxious to finish the journey and get back to safety, along with my comrades.
